दिल्ली से मालदा टाउन के बीच चलने वाली फरक्का एक्सप्रेस के सेकंड और थर्ड एसी कोच में कूलिंग न होने से नाराज यात्रियों ने शनिवार दोपहर चारबाग स्टेशन पर हंगामा किया। सिग्नल होने के बाद यात्रियों ने चेन पुलिंग कर ट्रेन रोक दी। इस पर रेलवे ने एक टेक्निकल कर्मचारी को ट्रेन में भेजकर यात्रियों को शांत करवाया।
फरक्का एक्सप्रेस (13484) शनिवार सुबह 11:40 बजे चारबाग स्टेशन पहुंची तो उसके एसी कोचों के यात्री पसीने से तर थे। प्लेटफॉर्म-5 पर ट्रेन रुकते ही यात्री हंगामा करने लगे। ट्रेन करीब एक घंटे यहां खड़ी रही। टेक्निकल कर्मचारियों ने काफी कोशिश की, लेकिन ए-1 और बी-2 कोच की कूलिंग सामान्य नहीं हो सकी। आखिर में रेल प्रशासन ने एक टेक्निकल कर्मचारी को ट्रेन में

भेजकर रास्ते में कूलिंग ठीक करवाने का भरोसा दिया। इसके बाद यात्रियों ने ट्रेन रवाना होने दी।
डिस्चार्ज थीं बैटरियां
इलेक्ट्रिकल डिपार्टमेंट के कर्मचारियों के मुताबिक, फरक्का एक्सप्रेस लखनऊ पहुंचने से पहले एक घंटे मानकनगर स्टेशन पर खड़ी रही। इससे एसी कोचों की बैटरियां डिस्चार्ज हो गईं। इससे कूलिंग बंद हो गई थी। उनका दावा था कि ट्रेन के 20-25 किमी चलने के बाद कूलिंग फिर शुरू हो जाएगी।

The minimum fare for metro passengers (buying tokens) is Rs. 10 and the maximum is Rs. 60.K. Murali KumarK_MURALI_KUMAR 
Earlier this week, the Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC) brought major relief to the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (BMRCL) by approving a Re. 1 per unit reduction from the existing tariff, contrary to the upward revision in tariff for other categories of electricity consumers.
This means that the BMRCL will now have to shell out less on power to run Namma Metro operations with a concessional tariff of Rs. 5 per unit.
However,

consumers will continue paying what they usually do as the BMRCL has decided not to pass on the benefit of the concessional tariff to them. The minimum fare for metro passengers (buying tokens) is Rs. 10 and the maximum is Rs. 60.
The KERC had justified the move to reduce the tariff for BMRCL saying that the company manages the entire infrastructure and the only role the Bangalore Electricity Supply Company has is in supplying power.
BMRCL Managing Director Mahendra Jain said, “The revision of fares is a matter which is deliberated by the Audit Committee of the Board, and decided with approval of the board and the government. Therefore, any proposal for fare revision has to be decided at the appropriate level. However, keeping in mind our overall financial situation, and considering that our fares are fairly competitive, presently, there is no proposal to revise the fares.”
The BMRCL uses about 65 lakh units of electricity every month and the expenditure is around Rs. 5.5 crore. “The reduction in electricity tariff by Rs. 1 per unit is a very welcome and environment-friendly move to incentivise electric-based mobility solutions, and will save us about Rs. 65 lakh per month. There will be some additional savings due to waiver of time of the day rates,” he said.
Why then will these savings not reflect in the fares that metro passengers pay?
Mr. Jain explained that the provisional operations and maintenance (O&M) expenditure of BMRCL annually is around Rs. 240 crore, and the revenue — both fare and non-fare — is around Rs. 333 crore.
“We incur financial charges, such as interest, of around Rs. 111 crore. Therefore, there is net cash loss of around Rs. 30 crore annually. Further, this does not include the loan principal repayment, which is approximately Rs. 350 crores.
“Our operational expenses are rising mainly on account of higher security, higher staff costs, longer operational hours during off-peak hours, higher maintenance due to older rolling stock, etc.” he added.

Final checks:Officials inspected the Metro stretch on Anna Salai recently.Special Arrangement 
Track work on the Metro Rail stretch from the Government Estate to AG-DMS on Anna Salai is nearing completion.
Work on this stretch is crucial for commuters travelling to Central from AG-DMS, Saidapet or Nandanam. In two weeks, the stretch from Saidapet to AG-DMS will become operational.
Now, commuters at the Saidapet or

Nandanam stations, who want to travel to Central, would have to take a circuitous route through Little Mount, Ashok Nagar, Koyambedu, Thirumangalam and Nehru Park.
If the stretch between the Government Estate and AG-DMS is opened, commuters from Saidapet and Nandanam stations can reach Central in quickly.
It is, however, not clear when the stretch between the Government Estate to AG-DMS will become operational.
Station construction
According to officials of the Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL), the track work has been almost completed on the 4.1 km stretch from the Government Estate to AG-DMS. “Except for two locations — the LIC station and Thousand Lights station — the track has been laid on both upward and downward directions along this stretch. Simultaneously, we have been focussing on finishing the construction of stations on this stretch,” an official said.
The underground stretch from Saidapet to AG-DMS still has civil work left to be completed.
After completing the final inspection, a senior official of the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety (CMRS), said, “Both Saidapet and AG-DMS stations have only one entry/exit point [out of four] ready for now. I have been informed that one more entry/exit point at the Saidapet station will be ready soon, but at AG-DMS it may take some time.”
The CMRS inspected four stations along this 4.1 km stretch including Saidapet, Nandanam, Teynampet and AG-DMS in the last few days. They looked at the civil, operations and readiness of other systems in this stretch.
“There is some fine-tuning to be done in systems like the tunnel ventilation; but otherwise, everything was fine,” he added.
On Sunday afternoon, there will be a second round of inspection again at the Chennai Central Metro Rail station. Only after the CMRS issues a certificate of approval can the services start on both the stretches. Sources said the certificate is likely to come next week.

MMTS Phase II work on the Secunderabad-Moula Ali-Cherlapalli-Ghatkesar section progressing.File photoK.V.S. Giri 
The State government has decided to pool land to fund its share of project cost for the ongoing Multi-Modal Transit System (MMTS) Phase-II, which will cover 84.4 km and has identified about 350 acres of land near Cherlapally for the purpose.
The second phase of MMTS, which will connect the capital suburbs of Ramachandrapuram, Medchal, Ghatkesar and other areas to the rail network, has been estimated to cost about Rs. 817 crore, of which the then Andhra Pradesh government had agreed

to meet two-thirds of the project estimate.
However, the government has released just Rs. 60 crore till date, whereas the South Central Railway (SCR) claims to have spent up to Rs. 470 crore. Already, the Tellapur-R.C. Puram 5.75-km stretch is undergoing test runs and another section - Moula Ali-Ghatkesar (12.2 km) - is almost complete, while work on other sections is in various stages.
After top officials of SCR have indicated to the State government, more specifically to Municipal Administration Minister K.T. Rama Rao, in a recent interaction, that the Railway Board has instructed the work be halted in case the remaining Rs. 485 crore or a part of is not released, there was a flurry of meetings.
Quick off the block
In these meetings, it was decided that the government should scour available vacant public land in the districts of Ranga Reddy and Medchal for MMTS Phase -11 . The Medchal Collector has been quick off the block, informing the government that a large tract of land is available at Cherlapally, which could be utilised for land-pooling.
Incidentally, SCR has been seeking up to 100 acres of land from this site for the proposed new rail terminal as it was already in control of about 50 acres. Chief Secretary S.K. Joshi has acknowledged the Medchal Collector’s initiative and wanted more land to be identified for the purpose.
Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited has been made in charge of the land-pooling, having had the experience of doing it for the project at Uppal.
