Demo tests for the vending machines using debit/credit cards declared a success; service to be available as early as March 2019
This is the first time that commuters will get an opportunity to use the cards on the machines directly for spot transactions, just like one does at ATM machines No cash in your wallet and you desperately need a local train ticket? You can soon whip out your debit or credit card and swipe it at the nearest Automatic Ticket Vending Machine (ATVM). The IT arm of the Indian Railways has moved one step closer to giving commuters their first credit/debit card-enabled ticket machines. The tests and trials of the first such machine have just been completed.
mid-day had reported last month (November 6) that the Centre for Railway Information Systems, the IT arm of the Indian Railways, had, through the Central Railway, forwarded a proposal to the railway board to modify the existing lot of ATVMs to enable the change. Once the changes are made, it will be applicable for all railways across the country where ATVMs are used. A senior official associated with the project said they were awaiting a green light from the Indian Railways. Explaining the project, an official said that all these years, the ATVM card machines enabled a transaction between the ticket smart card and railway ticketing servers. With the incorporation of credit/debit cards, the process includes multiple gateway points and related elements. With credit/debit cards being extremely popular in urban hubs, railway officials feel the machines will definitely be successful in major cities where the use of ticket machines is already popular. "We are confident of starting this project by March 2019. Bids have been called in for four divisions of Central Railway and the process for Mumbai division is also being finalised. Some of the existing machines will be modified and we will try and cover maximum stations as per demand," chief public relations officer, Sunil Udasi said.

The second version of the superfast express train was initially earmarked for the Northern Railway, but was finally allotted to the Southern Railway, ICF said in a statement.
Earlier this month, the Chennai-based Integral Coach Factory (ICF) rolled out modern and feature-filled coaches for the improved version of the Tejas Express, which will soon operate on the busy Chennai-Madurai route. It is reportedly the first luxury train linking Chennai Egmore with the southern districts. The second version of the superfast express train was initially earmarked for the Northern Railway, but was finally allotted to the Southern Railway, ICF said in a statement. The first Tejas train is being operated between Mumbai and Goa since 2017.
to NDTV, the launch date of the new service and its schedule will be announced later by the Southern Railways. Here's all you need to know about the new Tejas Express.
Features: The coaches of the improved Tejas Express will be fully air-conditioned, boasting features such as airplane-like LED lights, fibre reinforced plastic (FRP) interior panels, GPS-based passenger information system, luxurious sets, smart windows with motor-operated venetian blinds, sliding coach doors, modular toilets, increased number of CCTV cameras, and sealed vestibules/gangways for easy coach-to-coach transit and automatic passenger area entry doors.
Speed: The train will run at an average speed of 70 kmph, a senior Southern Railways official told The Times of India. This would reduce the journey time between Chennai and Madurai from 8 hours taken by Vaigai Express - currently the fastest train -to around 7 hours. The train will reportedly run five days a week.

Fares: The buzz is that the fare would be 20% higher than that for the Shatabdi Express trains, but the exact details have not been finalised. Tickets could cost around Rs 1,000 for a chair-car seat if the dynamic pricing is taken into account, while an executive class seat will cost around Rs 2,000.
Seating capacity: The new Tejas coaches, like the Shatabdi Express trains, will have a seating capacity of 56 passengers in the executive class chair cars and 78 passengers in each of the regular air-conditioned chair cars.
Passenger amenities: Better seats, a modern audio-and-visual entertainment display system, embedded in the dining table for the centre seat passengers and behind every seat for others, personalised reading lights, onboard WiFi service, USB charging ports with every seat and a revamped folding snack tray concealed below the hand rest of the coaches.

Proposed schedule: According to the daily, the Tejas Express will start from Chennai at 6 am, reach Madurai by 1 pm and return to Chennai by around 9 pm. It might prove a blessing for tourists visiting Kodaikanal. The train's Kodai Road stopping has reportedly been planned in a way that will allow tourists to reach the hill station before the typical hotel check-in time of 12 pm. Similarly, for the return journey, tourists can conveniently board the train post lunch, at around 3 pm.
The plan: This new offering from the ICF comes within a month of it rolling out Train 18, India's first engine-less semi-high speed train. The premier production unit of the Ministry of Railways is now planning to manufacture 23 Tejas coaches of which 18 are air-conditioned chair cars, 2 are air-conditioned executive chair cars and the remaining are power cars. These coaches have been allotted by the Railway Board for the Northern Railways.

गाजीपुर। वाराणसी-छपरा रेल मार्ग पर बलिया से छपरा रेलवे स्टेशनों के बीच विद्युतीकरण का निरीक्षण करने गाजीपुर के रास्ते मुख्य संरक्षा अधिकारी वाराणसी एके जैन अधिकारियों की टीम के साथ बलिया पहुंचे। वहां उन्होंने बलिया से छपरा रेल मार्ग पर विद्युत संचालित इंजन को हरी झंडी दिखा कर रवाना किया। बलिया जाते समय उन्होंने बिना रुके सभी स्टेशनों का विंडो निरीक्षण किया। उनके इस मार्ग से गुजरने को लेकर सभी स्टेशनों पर साफ-सफाई लकदक थी। सभी को भय था कि वह किसी भी स्टेशन पर उतर सकते हैं। इसे लेकर सभी पूरी तरह सजग व सतर्क थे। सुरक्षा के मद्देनजर रेलवे सुरक्षा बल और राजकीय रेलवे पुलिस दोनों तैनात रही।
मंगलवार को मुख्य संरक्षा अधिकारी एके जैन, डीआरएम एसके झा, सीनियर डीओएस रोहित गुप्ता, सीनियर डीईई बीके सिंह, सीनियर डीईएन डीके पाठक समेत अन्य अधिकारियों की टीम पूर्वांह्न दस बजे गाजीपुर के रास्ते बलिया पहुंची। अधिकारियों की ट्रेन धड़धड़ाती हुई गाजीपुर सिटी रेलवे स्टेशन से गुजर गई। इसके बाद सभी उनके वापसी का इंतजार करते रहे। अधिकारी और कर्मचारी उनके आने का लोकेशन पूरे दिन पूछते रहे। वापसी में कहीं किसी स्टेशन पर अधिकारी उतर कर निरीक्षण न करने लगें इसके मद्देनजर पूरे दिन रेलवे स्टेशनों को साफ-सुथरा और अतिक्रमण मुक्त रखा गया। गाजीपुर सिटी के साथ ही अधिकारियों ने औड़िहार, सैदपुर भीतरी, नंदगंज, युसूफपुर, करीमुद्दीनपुर आदि छोटे-बड़े स्टेशनों पर विंडो निरीक्षण किया। इस दौरान राजकीय रेलवे पुलिस और रेलवे सुरक्षा बल के अधिकारी और कर्मचारी भी पूरे दिन स्टेशन पर चक्रमण करते रहे।
