When did farmers lift the dharna from railway tracks for freight trains? How are farmers affected due to the suspension of train movement? What is the current scenario?
Amid the continued suspension of goods trains to Punjab, the ruling Congress party in state and the opposition BJP has remained engaged in a verbal spat over the issue, even as Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh pointed out that no movement of freight trains can have a dangerous consequence on national security, including depriving the armed forces in Ladakh and Kashmir of critical supplies ahead of winter. The CM has also been citing how the thermal plants are running out of coal stock and the farmers being deprived of fertilizers ahead of the rabi

sowing season. The protesting farmers, meanwhile, claim that they have cleared most of the tracks. We explain the controversy.
When did Railways stop running freight trains to Punjab and why?
The Railways have not run any freight trains to Punjab since October 24. Railway divisions at Ferozepur and Ambala, which operate trains in Punjab, have not received any directions on resumption of service.
The farmers agitating against the three central farm laws had earlier organised rail roko protests at more than 33 locations in Punjab. On October 21, they announced to clear all tracks for freight trains. Railways operated 173 goods trains on October 22 and 23 in Punjab. However, according to Rajesh Aggarwal, divisional railway manager (DRM), Ferozepur division, farmers had stopped an empty rake of passenger train, which was being run for maintenance purpose at Romana Albela. He claimed that some goods trains were stopped at several locations on October 22. Subsequently, the Railways issued directions to stop movement of goods trains to Punjab from October 24 onwards. The DRM had said that Railways cannot run trains in uncertainty and want farmers to clear all tracks for smooth operations. On October 30, Sukhwinder Singh, additional DRM, Ferozepur division said, “We have got no orders for running the trains. Status quo is being maintained.”
How many trains run on railway tracks in Punjab?
On an average, 28 freight trains and 300 passenger trains were running on tracks passing through Punjab on a daily basis. During lockdown, while there was no reduction in the number freight trains, that of passenger trains came down to 14 pairs. Few more passenger trains were to be added from October onwards, but the decision now remains in abeyance. According Ferozepur division, 499 freight trains ran on tracks in April in Punjab earning Rs 234 crore in revenue, while 427 such trains brought in another Rs 208 crore in May. In June and July, 408 and 556 freight trains ran in Punjab bringing in Rs 177 crore and Rs 259 crore in revenue, respectively. Railways earned Rs 326 crore by running 693 freight trains in August, and Rs 330 crore by running 676 trains in September. The rail roko protest had started on several tracks in Punjab from September 24 onwards.

How is industry affected due to suspension of goods trains?
Different industrial organizations, in a written representation to the Punjab government, have stated that industry has suffered more than Rs 1500 crore in losses since October 1 as import and export of goods have been affected. Upkar Singh, president of Chamber of Industrial and Commercial Organization (CICU), said, “Goods trains’ movement was not stopped by the Centre even during the terrorism days in Punjab. This has happened for the first time. They must sort out issues with farmers and state government and should not let industry suffer. When farmers have cleared most of the tracks, they must run freight trains”.
How are farmers affected due to the suspension of train movement?
The suspension of freight trains has led to an acute shortage of fertilisers, with the state authorities saying Rabi crop sowing is likely to be affected. Farmers require urea, and DAP (diammonium phosphate) for sowing wheat and other vegetable crops such as potato. “Punjab needs 14 lakh tonnes urea, 5.25 lakh tonne DAP, 0.5 lakh tonne muriate of potash (MOP) and 0.5 lakh tonne nitrogen phosphorus potassium (NPK Complex) for the Rabi 2020-21 season. At present, we have only 2.05 lakh tonne urea, 1.95 lakh tonne DAP, 0.35 lakh tonne MOP and 0.08 lakh tonne NPK Complex,” said Rajesh Vashisht, director agriculture, Punjab.
Officials said 4 lakh tonnes of urea was supposed to arrive in the month of October, but only 1 lakh tonnes was received. For November, the state has an allocation of 4 lakh tonnes of urea. Punjab gets urea supplies through trains from Gujarat, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and other states. Wheat is expected to be cultivated in about 35 lakh hectare area in the state during the rabi season. Of this wheat has already been sown in 30 per cent area.
Why did farmers’ start a rail roko protest in Punjab?
The rail roko protest was planned by 30 farmer unions of Punjab as part of protests against the central farm laws. Kisan Mazdoor Sangrash Committee (KMSC) and Bharti Kisan Union (Ugrahan) had first started rail blockade from September 24 at 11 locations – Ferozepur, Amritsar, Sangrur, Mansa, Patiala, Barnala, Fazilka, Muktsar, Moga, Faridkot and Patiala – due to which all the passenger trains were cancelled while goods trains continued to run during night hours from select locations. From September 27-30, this blockade was reduced to only two locations – at Basti Tenka Wali in Ferozepur and Devidaspura in Amritsar by KMSC. However from October 1 onwards, all the 30 farmer unions started indefinite rail blockade at 33 locations after which all train services were put on hold. As part of protest, farmers sat on railway tracks and platforms.
When did farmers lift the dharna from railway tracks for freight trains?
It was done in phases. BKU (Ugrahan) lifted dharnas from Dablan in Patiala, Budhlada in Mansa and Chhajali in Sangrur from October 13 onwards. However dharnas at the other 30 locations continued. October 21 onwards, unions lifted dharnas from the remaining 30 locations. However, the dharnas were lifted only for the movement of freight trains as farmers said that they will not allow movement of passenger trains. Hence, farmers continued to sit on the platforms at more than 20 stations in small gatherings, Jagmohan Singh, working committee member of All India Kisan Sangrash Coordination Committee (AIKSCC) said. Moreover, farmers, under the banner of KMSC, after lifting dharnas from all rail tracks, started a fresh dharna at Jandiala Guru local railway line in Amritsar from October 22 onwards. In addition to this, they also sat on the internal coal supply lines of private thermal plants at Talwandi Sabo and Rajpura thermal plants so as not to allow any coal supplies to private power plants.
For how many days did the railways run freight trains despite rail roko?
In September, freight trains traffic was not much affected as dharnas were held at select few locations mostly during day hours. But, no passenger train has been moving in Punjab since September 24. In October, movement of more than 173 freight trains took place in Punjab over two days after farmers lifted blockade from almost all the tracks, barring three new locations.
What is the current scenario?
Farmer unions across the nation will be holding chakka jam protest on national as well as state highways on November 5 for four hours to lodge their protest against farm laws and also to protest against suspension of goods trains by Centre in Punjab, said VM Singh, national convener, AIKSCC.

Vizag Metro Rail project, proposed to be taken up in four corridors covering a total distance of 75.3 km at an estimated cost of ₹15,933 crore, is expected to be completed by 2028. The first phase, extending over 46.40 km, is expected to be completed by 2025.

A master plan has already been prepared for development of 79.91 km of light metro corridor and 60 km modern tram corridor. The project consultants would prepare separate DPRs for the metro and tram corridors and submit them by mid-November and mid-December respectively.

The consultants have made detailed traffic study and recommended four metro corridors with 52 stations, extending over a length of 75.31 km. Corridor-1 will be from Steel Plant to Kommadi junction, covering a distance of 34.23 km, corridor-2 from Gurudwara to Old Post Office, covering 5.26 km, corridor-3 from Thatichetlapalem to China Waltair, covering 6.91 km and corridor-4 from Kommadi to Bhogapuram Airport, covering a distance of 28.91 km.

The modern tram will be in three routes: corridor-1: NAD junction to Pendurthi, covering 10.20 km., Steel Plant Gate to Anakapalle, covering 18.20 km and corridor-3 from Old Head Post Office to Bheemili beach via Rushikonda 31.80 km.

Minister for Municipal Administration and Urban Development Botcha Satyanarayana inaugurated the regional office of AP Metro Rail Corporation here on Sunday.

Addressing the media later, the Minister said: “The project is being taken up for the development of Visakhapatnam city as part of the decentralisation plan of Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy.”

Mr. Satyanarayana said that the unique features of Vizag Metro were that it would not have overhead electrical lines as in the case of other metros in India, and would be powered by 750 volts DC power. It would be a driver-less metro. Six multi-level car parkings were planned at Steel Plant Gate, Gurudwara, Maddilapalem, BVK College, Sampath Vinayak temple and Gajuwaka. Each would have a capacity for parking 200 to 300 cars.

Of the 75.3 km of light metro corridors, 70.5 km would be fully elevated and 4.5 km would be at grade level near Bhogapuram Airport.

Tourism Minister Muttamsetti Srinivasa Rao, District Collector V. Vinay Chand, MP M.V.V. Satyanarayana, Metro Rail Project MD N.P. Ramakrishna Reddy, VMRDA Commissioner P. Koteswara Rao and GVMC Commissioner G. Srijana and MLAs Tippala Nagi Reddy and Adeep Raj were among those present.

Private freight trains are likely to be “packaged as an added attraction,” once private passenger trains are already underway

Indian Railways (IR) is planning to run private freight trains along dedicated corridors. This comes as the Railways is geared up for private passenger trains, a process which was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

by the enthusiastic response to private passenger trains, the Railways is looking at private freight trains as well. For this, it is fast-tracking auctioning of routes in under-completion dedicated freight corridors (DFCs) to private players, as per a report by The Economic Times.

The aim is to begin privatising freight trains when the first batch of private passenger trains begin operation in 2023. Currently, among freight trains, only private container trains have been allowed to operate in India in limited capacity since 2006.

Private freight trains are likely to be “packaged as an added attraction”, once private passenger trains are already underway, giving early movers the advantage on grabbing lucrative routes, the report said.
Confirming the development, Railway Board Chairman VK Yadav said as per the report that private operators will be brought in once DFCs are ready. Deadline for completion of DFCs is June 2022.

“A railway regulator will be created before the rollout of private passenger trains in 2023… private freight operators will invest in wagons and containers. So, the regulator will have two mandates — regulating passenger trains and freight trains,” Yadav added.

On the routes likely to be auctioned to private players, Anurag Sachan, Managing Director, DFC Corporation of India (DFCCIL) said they would engage first in the 650 km stretch between Palanpur (Gujarat) and Rewari (Haryana). This stretch will be operational this fiscal, he added.

The Railways is spending Rs 80,000 crore to build two corridors – eastern and western and has plans to monetise their assets to “the highest level to repay loans and receive some revenue,” Sachan added.
