The pressure of the annual Ganpati festival is adding to the perils of the single line Konkan Railway network, with some or the other problem hitting it every single day. On Tuesday morning, agitated passengers held up an overcrowded train for two hours as there was no space to sit. The agitation led to further delays on the delicately balanced operational plan, which sees over 200 trains pass through the network every single day.
On Sunday, the Madgaon Mumbai AC Double Decker train where the air-conditioner of the C1 coach malfunctioned and commuters tore out the window panes of the train. The railways refunded some passengers. Last week, the Kochuveli train that started from Mumbai on its way to Kerala had to
be detained at Roha after the Ganpati general class passengers crowded an AC compartment and the RPF had to summon the Roha police to get the crowd out.
"On Tuesday, the Ratnagiri Dadar train that arrived at Ratnagiri did not have space for passengers despite the fact that the train originates from there. When it came from Madgaon, the train was packed. So, angry passengers blocked the train for two hours. Many of them had to reach Mumbai as it was a working day," Rajesh Sanap, a passenger said. "It has become impossible to get into any Konkan Railway trains during the Ganpati festival," said Jayesh Biwalkar, another commuter said. A senior railway official said, "The railways have run more than 200 special trains for Ganpati, and there is a limit to how many trains can run on a system without problems."

Western Railway (WR) is planning to run extra services to cater to additional passengers during Ganesh visarjan and take specific measures for crowd control.
On Sunday, fast trains traveling to Churchgate during evening peak hours, i.e. from 5.30 p.m. and 8.30 p.m., will get a halt at Charni Road. It is the closest station to Girgaum Chowpatty. Normally, fast locals do not get a halt between Mumbai Central and Churchgate. However, slow services will not halt at Charni Road from 5 p.m. and 10 p.m.
“Slow trains stop at Platform No.
2 (in Charni road station), which is an island platform and hence we have decided to not stop trains there to avoid overcrowding. Instead we have provided a stop for all fast trains,” chief public relations officer, Ravinder Bhakar said. Fast trains stop on Platform No. 4, which has multiple exits to the road running parallel to the tracks. WR will also be deploying extra RPF staff for crowd management.
WR is also planning to run eight extra services, four in each direction, between Churchgate and Virar, which will halt at all stations. In the down direction (towards Virar) trains will depart Churchgate at 1.15, 1.55, 2.25 and 3.20 a.m. In the reverse direction, trains will depart Virar at 12.15, 12.45, 1.40 and 3.00 a.m.
CR will run an extra service everyday from Wednesday to Sunday. The train will depart Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus at 1.30 a.m. and will halt at all stations.

The MPs want the government to expedite the critical mass rapid transit project.Sudhakara JainSudhakara Jain 
With plans for the suburban railway network chugging along slowly, MPs across party lines will petition Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy to expedite the formation of the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) that will implement the ambitious and critical mass rapid project in the city. On Tuesday, eight Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha MPs representing constituencies in and around the city met South Western Railways officials to discuss various demands, including suburban rail.
Railways officials informed the MPs that RITES
had been entrusted with the detailed feasibility study, and the preliminary report was expected later in September. The final report would be submitted by November 2018 following which tenders could be floated on the various aspects to augment local train travel.
Talking to reporters after the meeting, Bengaluru Central MP P.C. Mohan said though the railways has consented to implementation of suburban rail network, the State government is yet to do it share. “The State government had objected to the policy, which had said the railways would pay only 20% of the cost. The Railways then agreed to pay nearly half the cost. And yet, there preliminary paperwork to set up the SPV is not moving fast enough... Providing urban transport is the responsibility of the State government,” said Mr. Mohan.
The MPs have decided to meet Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy in a week, he said.
While the Railways had consented to changing the funding pattern in the last week of August, the new policy would have to be approved by the State cabinet.
Citizens For Bengaluru (CfB), an informal group of concerned citizens who had campaigned for the suburban rail network, said the meeting took up many of their demands, including more trains, increased frequency and convenient timings for commuters, and doubling / electrification along the IT corridor and the Whitefield-K.R. Puram sector.
“We hope that Railways acts on all the immediately actionable demands with a sense of urgency and brings relief to commuters, especially those travelling to ORR, E-City and Whitefield,” said Srinivas Alavilli of CfB.
