रेलवे अधिकारियों ने राबर्ट्सगंज के सांसद सहित रेल मंत्रालय को अंधेरे में रख कर झारखण्ड के मेराल ग्राम रेलवे स्टेशन से प्रदेश के रेणुकूट रेलवे स्टेशन तक के रेल लाइन के विद्युतीकरण का लोकार्पण रेल मंत्री से बुधवार को करवा दिया। लोकार्पण के बाद जब पत्रकारों ने प्रदेश के म्योरपुर रोड से लेकर रेणुकूट रेलवे स्टेशन तक लगभग पांच किमी की दूरी में विद्युतीकरण न किए जाने के बावजूद लोकार्पण कराए जाने की बात उठाई तो रेलवे अधिकारी बगले झांकने लगे। सांसद ने इस पर गहरी नाराजगी जताई। मामले को प्रधानमंत्री और रेल मंत्री को अवगत कराने की बात कही।
रेणुकूट रेलवे स्टेशन पर बुधवार को आयोजित समारोह में वीडियो लिंक के माध्यम से रेल मंत्री सुरेश प्रभु ने मेराल ग्राम
से रेणुकूट तक कराए गए विद्युतीकरण कार्य का लोकार्पण किया। राबर्ट्सगंज के सांसद छोटेलाल खरवार, ओबरा विधायक संजीव कुमार गोंड़ की मौजूदगी में आयोजित इस कार्यक्रम में अपने संदेश में रेल मंत्री ने बताया कि उत्तर प्रदेश में ही 85,000 करोड़ रुपये की रेल परियोजनाओं पर कार्य चल रहा है।
सांसद ने कहा कि बताया कि रेणुकूट-चोपन, चोपन- सिंगरौली व चोपन से चुनार तक रेलवे लाइन का विद्युतीकरण कार्य भी चल रहा है। इस दौरान अपर मंडल रेल प्रबंधक डीके सिन्हा ने मेराल ग्राम से रेणुकूट तक कराए गए विद्युतीकरण की जानकारी दी। इस पर पत्रकारों ने उनसे पूछा कि विद्युतीकरण का कार्य रेणुकूट से एक स्टेशन पूर्व सिर्फ म्योरपुर रोड तक ही हुआ है तो फिर रेणुकूट तक का लोकार्पण क्यों कराया गया।

Delhi Metro recently raised the price of its ticket by up to 50 per cent in many sectors effectively taking the cost out reach for poorer income groups. The rationale offered by the Corporation is that it is necessary to keep it profitable. In the process, the benefit of the Metro to provide long-distance travel to low-income groups has gone for a toss. It is an example of tunnel-vision based accounting that the financial rate of return imposes on broad spectrum infrastructure projects.
The alternative floated by the government on Wednesday requiring a higher than before commitment from states and public-private partnership (PPP), in terms of land clearances and funding obligations is more practical. The policy stipulates a shift from the present
‘Financial Internal Rate of Return of eight per cent’ to ‘Economic Internal Rate of Return of 14 per cent’ for approving of projects. The new policy allows private investments across a range of metro operations through a mandatory PPP route for availing of central assistance for new projects. Private investment and other innovative forms of financing have been made compulsory to meet the huge resource demand for these capital-intensive schemes.
It is rarely possible for an urban transport project to be profitable. Yet for high-density populated cities infrastructure projects need to be constructed, says Shailesh Pathak, CEO Bhartiya Group, an infrastructure construction company. "The returns from these projects have to be assessed taking into account environmental costs, equity costs and so on". For example, the Shanghai metro can charge a flat ticket rate that encourages all segments to board.
Once those costs are built into the project instead of limiting the costs to only traditional ones, it is easy to understand why projects like city metros cannot be financed only through government handouts. But as a top former urban development department official said it is not impossible for a state government to get involved in building such a project if it can factor those costs in.
Of the eight metro projects in various stages of construction, four have private sector participation. This is not to say that a private sector company is socially attuned, but bringing in an outside entity allows for more realistic recognition of the actual cost of such projects.
Yesterday (13:55)  CM seeks early environment clearance for Hubballi-Ankola railway line - The Hindu (

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah called on Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on Thursday in New Delhi, urging him to expedite pending railway projects in Karnataka. He also sought the early environment clearance from the centre for the long pending Hubballi-Ankola railway line.
The work on the Hubballi-Ankola railway line, which was first proposed in 1998, has been tardy since the centre has not given environment clearance to the project. A high power committee of the Union Ministry of Environment has recommended environment clearance to the project, Mr. Siddaramaiah said.
With the increase in the number
of passengers and movement of trains in Mysuru railway station, the Chief Minister urged Mr. Prabhu to modernise the railway station to international standards, besides exanding the station to ensure that passengers can be provided with modern facilities.
Mr. Siddaramaiah also demanded the centre to expedite work on the high-speed rail network between Mysuru-Bengaluru-Chennai.
Mr. Prabhu, who listened to the demands of the Karnataka government, told the Chief Minister to submit the wish-list after officials of both state and the centre discussed the progress of various railway projects in Karnataka.
Drought relief
Mr. Siddaramaiah also called on Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and demanded higher amount of relief for executing drought relief works in the State. The centre has granted ₹1,527 crore to the state in the last five years, while other states such as Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh had received more than ₹8,000 crore, he told reporters in Delhi.
He also urged Mr. Singh to drop the revised Manual for Drought Management 2016, which will be effective in the ongoing Kharif season. He maintained that the manual will significantly reduce the aid to the drought affected taluks.
On July 24, Mr. Siddaramaiah had written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi stating that “stringent parameters/eligibility conditions will make it difficult for the state government to declare taluks with significant crop loss severely drought affected.” He added that the new guidelines “will drastically reduce the central assistance in future. This will increase hardship of the farmers.”
The government has opposed changes in parameters for drought assessment. The new manual for drought management limits centre’s scope to offer financial assistance to states in the eventuality of drought.
Unlike the 2009 manual, which was a mere guideline and not mandatory for the states to follow, the “moderate” drought category has been deleted in the new manual. It means drought-hit areas will now be categorised as “normal” and “severe”. Only in case of “severe” drought, a state would be eligible for central assistance from the National Disaster Relief Fund.

For this CM, only 3 cities exist in Karnataka!!
नयी दिल्ली : बिहार में बाढ़ और तबाही के बीच भारतीय रेल ने यात्रियों के लिए कई सुविधाओं का इंतजाम किया है. रेल मंत्री सुरेश प्रभु ने यात्री सुविधाओं का ऐलान करते हुए कहा कि यात्री अनुकूल कदमों में प्लेटफॉर्म पर इंतजार कर रहे यात्रियों को वाई-फाई सुविधा मुहैया करायी जायेगी, ताकि वे तेज गतिवाले इंटरनेट का इस्तेमाल कर सकें. यह सेवा गूगल की साझेदारी से रेल टेल मुहैया करा रही है. प्रभु ने कहा कि पहले हमारा लक्ष्य 140 स्टेशनों पर वाई-फाई मुहैया कराना था. अब हम इस साल 200 स्टेशनों में वाई-फाई उपलब्ध कराने का लक्ष्य लेकर चल रहे हैं और दो साल में, हम 400 स्टेशनों पर यह मुहैया करायेंगे.
रेल मंत्री द्वारा शुरू की गयी अन्य सेवाएं
: गया बाईपास की आधारशिला रखी गयी है. यह गया-मननपुर से गया पटना लाईन के मध्‍य तीन लाईन से सीधा संपर्क उपलब्‍ध करायेगा. गया स्‍टेशन पर उलटाव रोकेगा और कोयला, इस्‍पात, सीमेंट और खाद्यान्न को पटना ले जाने की गति में सुधार होगा.

छपरा : यहां भी स्टेशन पर यात्री सुविधाओं का विस्तार किया जायेगा. 24.62 करोड़ रुपये की लागत से दूसरा प्रवेश द्वार बनेगा. साथ ही छपरा स्टेशन पर वाई-फाई सुविधा गूगल की भागीदारी से रेल टेल सुविधा प्रदान कर रही है. रेलवायर वाई-फाई सेवा अभी 127 स्टेशनों पर उपलब्ध है. साथ ही स्टेशन पर 14.55 करोड़ रुपये की लागत से एस्‍केलेटर्स की सुविधा मुहैया करायी जायेगी. छपरा ग्रामीण स्टेशन पर नये मालगोदाम शैड बनेगा. छपरा ग्रामीण स्टेशन छह चालू लाइनों वाला एक क्रॉसिंग स्टेशन है. दो लाइनें विद्युतीकृत हैं तथा अन्य का कार्य जल्द पूरा कर लिया जायेगा.
भागलपुर : भागलपुर-बांका खंड को हरित गलियारा बनाने का भी ऐलान रेलमंत्री ने किया. इसमें 2019-20 तक सभी कोचों में जैव शौचालय लगाये जायेंगे.
