A former Indian Railways Service of Electrical Engineers (IRSEE) officer, Mr. Tandon has completed training in Canada, Japan and the USA on computerisation of railways and rolling stock management.
The committee was set up on the basis of the decision taken at the July 19 meeting chaired by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan here to expedite the works of the Light Metro in the two cities.
The DMRC, the turnkey consultant for the project, communicated to Biju Prabhakar, Special Secretary, Public Works, and Ajith Patil, Managing Director of the Kerala Rapid Transit Corporation Ltd, about the setting up of the committee, DMRC sources told The Hindu . The three-member committee will now select the rolling stock to be procured for the Light Metro from linear induction motor (lim) or rotary motor.
The DMRC had already done the groundwork for the selection and had organised a meeting of the rolling stock suppliers.
A six-member team led by Mr. Sreedharan, which visited Kuala Lumpur and Taipei last year to study the rolling stock used in the urban rail system there, had proposed an 18-metre-long and 2.5-metre-wide rolling stock, with aluminium or stainless steel body for the Light Metro in the two cities.
The elevated Light Metro has been proposed for 21.82 km from Technocity near Pallippuram to Karamana in the capital and in the 13.33 km from Medical College to Meenchanda in Kozhikode.

As Chief Minister and MP, N. Dharam Singh helped the backward district of Bidar in various ways. The biggest of them was the splitting of two agricultural universities in Dharwad and Bengaluru and the formation of the Karnataka Veterinary University and locating it in Bidar, 750 km from Bengaluru.
He conceded the demand for a government medical college in Bidar by activists in 2005 and preferred Bidar to Kalaburagi, his home district.
Members of the government medical college agitation committee went to Bengaluru to meet [former] Chief Minister Dharam Singh. “We met him

in the veranda in front of the Chief Minister’s residence,” recalls Channabasappa Halhalli, president of the committee.
“When we told him we had come for the medical college,” he joked, “Are such serious decisions taken on the road? Please come inside. We will discuss over tea.” By afternoon, he called a meeting of the officials concerned and spoke to them. By the end of the meeting, he announced that a section of the college to Bidar. It was in the year 2005 and he had no idea that he would have to contest parliamentary polls from Bidar four years later, Mr. Halhalli said.
Dharam Singh conceived and implemented the four-way Bidar-Srirangapatna highway. The 900-km road was started when he was Public Works Minister but ended when he was the Chief Minister.
Dharam Singh lobbied with Ministers in the UPA government at the Centre and the Opposition leaders from NDA to introduce and pass a Constitution amendment Bill to provide special status to Hyderabad Karnataka region.
His cordial relationships with BJP leaders in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha aided his efforts.
He successfully pleaded with then Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi to run an inter-city train between Bidar and Hyderabad in 2012. Later, with Mallikarjun Kharge assuming charge of the Railway Ministry, Dharam Singh got sanctioned a pit line in Khanapur and a new train between Bidar and Bengaluru.
He increased the allocation to the Kannada Sahitya Parishat by nearly five times to organise the All India Kannada Sahitya Sammelan in Bidar in 2005. He led a delegation of Sikh leaders and residents of Bidar city to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to seek ₹ 100 crore for the “Gur ta Gaddi” or the 300th anniversary of coronation of the Holy Guru Granth Sahib in Bidar in 2007.
He led several delegations of the Bidar Chamber of Commerce and Industries to convince the Defence Ministry and the Airport Authority of India for an airport here. The two agencies approved the proposal later.

Asks govt, civic bodies for steps to eliminate ‘evil practice’
The Delhi High Court on Thursday asked the AAP government and the civic bodies what steps they have taken to eliminate the “evil practice” of manual scavenging in the Capital.
A Bench of Justices S. Ravindra Bhat and S.P. Garg ordered that a joint survey of manual scavengers be carried out by the Delhi government, the three municipal corporations, the Northern Railways and the Cantonment Board here in accordance with the 2013 law enacted for their rehabilitation.

report
The court directed that a report of the survey be filed before the next date of hearing on August 21. The authorities, in their report, have to “indicate the areas where manual scavenging is resorted to, the number of persons employed by each (of the authorities) for the work and the steps taken to eliminate the evil practice and the alternatives to such work”, it said.
The Delhi government, during the brief proceedings, did not want to be involved in the survey work, but the Bench said, since “there is one city government, you take charge of the survey”. The court was hearing a PIL filed in 2007 for the rehabilitation of manual scavengers. It had earlier termed as “disgraceful” the existence of manual scavenging in the city despite a law prohibiting the practice.

एक्ट के मुताबिक चेन पुलिंग करने वालों पर 1000 रुपये तक जुर्माना अथवा एक साल की सजा या फिर दोनों का प्रावधान है। बावजूद चेन पुलिंग में कोई कमी नहीं आ रही है। इससे स्पष्ट है कि आरोपियों को जेल और जुर्माने का कोई भय नहीं है। ऐसे में ट्रेनों में चेन पुलिंग करने वालों पर रेलवे ने कठोर फैसला लिया है। 75 चेन पुलिंग के मामले आरपीएफ पोस्ट में जनवरी 2017 से अबतक कुल 75 चेन पुलिंग के मामले में गिरफ्तारी हुई है।
इसके पहले 2016 में 274 लोगों को गिरफ्तार किया गया था। इस नियम के लागू होने से चेन पुलिंग करने वाले वैसे लोगों को तब परेशानी होगी जब उनका सरकारी नौकरी या पासपोर्ट के लिए चरित्र प्रमाण पत्र वेरिफिकेशन के लिए संबंधित थाने पहुंचेगा। क्या कहते हैं अधिकारी बरौनी जंक्शन के आरपीएफ इंस्पेक्टर सुनील कुमार पाण्डेय के अनुसार आरपीएफ पोस्ट के अंतर्गत जनवरी 2017 से अब तक 75 चेन पुलिंग के आरोपियों की गिरफ्तारी हुई है। गत वर्ष 2016 में 274 आरोपी पकड़े गए थे। चेन पुलिंग पर रोक लगाने के लिए विभाग द्वारा लगातार जागरूकता अभियान चलाया जा रहा है। बहुत हद तक अंकुश भी लगा है। बड़े अधिकारियों के निर्देश मिलते ही चेन पुलिंग के आरोपियों का ब्यौरा संबंधित थाने को भेजा जाएगा।
