The Railways has cancelled more than 1.78 crore tickets since March this year due to the coronavirus pandemic and refunded an amount to the tune of Rs 2,727 crore, an RTI has found.

The RTI has found that the Railways, which had suspended its passenger train services since March 25, cancelled 1,78,70,644 tickets.

has earlier reported how perhaps for the first time the Railways has refunded more than it has earned from ticket bookings, registering a negative passenger segment revenue of Rs 1,066 crore in the Covid-19-hit first quarter of 2020-21.

Last year, while the Railways had refunded Rs 3,660.08 crore for the April 1-August 11 period, it also earned Rs 17,309.1 crore in the same period.

This is the first time when the refunds were more than the amount earned by the Railways from the sale of tickets.

An official explained that due to the suspension of services, tickets booked for travel in April, May and June were offered refunds, while fewer tickets were booked during these three months and the ensuing period due to the restrictions.

The first three months of this financial year, when the Railways had to suspend all its regular passenger services, the national transporter’s revenue was in the negative -- Rs 531.12 crore in April, Rs 145.24 crore in May and Rs 390.6 in June (all in negative).

In the last fiscal, it had earned Rs 4,345 crore in April, Rs 4,463 crore in May and Rs 4,589 crore in June. As of now, the Railways has cancelled all regular passenger services indefinitely.

In the first quarter of the 2019-20 fiscal, the Railways had earned Rs 4,345 crore in April, Rs 4,463 crore in May and Rs 4,589 crore in June.

In the RTI filed by Madhya Pradesh-based Chandra Shekhar Gaur, the Railways has said that no amount/cancellation charges has been deducted for cancellation of tickets for trains stopping due to Covid-19.

More than one crore passengers were fined for travelling without a ticket in 2019-20, earning the Railways a revenue of Rs 561.73 crore -- a growth of around 6 percent over 2018-2019, an RTI application has found.

The Railways has earned Rs 1,938 crore through fines imposed on ticketless travellers between 2016-2020, a rise of 38.57 percent from 2016.

RTI application filed by Madhya Pradesh-based activist Chandra Shekhar Gaur revealed the details.

The Railways earned Rs 405.30 crore as penalties from ticketless travellers in 2016-17. In 2017-18, it recovered Rs 441.62 crore and it earned Rs 530.06 crore in 2018-19.

In 2019-2020, 1.10 crore passengers were found travelling without valid tickets.

The Indian Railways has laid down norms to curb ticketless travel.

A passenger travelling without a ticket needs to pay a minimum fine of Rs 250 along with the cost of the ticket. If a passenger refuses to pay the fine, the person is handed over to the Railway Protection Force (RPF) and booked under Section 137 of the Railways Act.

After that, the person is presented before a magistrate. The magistrate can fine him for Rs 1,000. In case the person still refuses to pay the fine, he or she may be jailed for up to six months.

A Parliament Railway Convention Committee had in 2018 raised concerns over the loss of revenue due to ticketless travel after inspecting the Railways' financial report of 2016-17.

Taking cognisance of the observation, the Railway Board directed zonal railways to intensify the drive against ticketless travellers across the country. The zonal railways were also asked to fix annual targets for Travelling Ticket Examiners (TTE)

झांसी। प्रेमनगर क्षेत्र में बनने वाली नई कोच फैक्टरी का निर्माण इस साल शुरू नहीं हो सकेगा। रेलवे ने फैक्टरी क्षेत्र में आ रहे क्वार्टरों के कर्मचारियों की दूसरी जगह व्यवस्था होने के बाद ही काम शुरू करने का निर्णय लिया है। पीएम मोदी की इस महत्वाकांक्षी योजना में लगातार देरी होती जा रही है।
प्रधानमंत्री ने 15 फरवरी 2019 को भोजला मंडी में प्रेमनगर में बनने वाली नई कोच फैक्टरी का शिलान्यास किया था। रेलवे बोर्ड ने रेल विकास निगम लिमिटेड को फैक्टरी बनाने का काम सौंपा है। इस फैक्टरी का निर्माण 80 एकड़ जमीन पर होना

है। पहले इस फैक्टरी को नगरा हाट के मैदान से कैथड्रिल स्कूल के पीछे तक खाली पड़ी रेलवे की जमीन पर बनना था। लेकिन लोगों के विरोध के कारण नगरा के हाट के मैदान की जमीन को छोड़ दिया गया। इस जमीन की कमी के पूरा करने के लिए रेलवे आवासों के टूटने की संख्या बढ़ा दी गई है। अब 250 आवास तोड़े जाने हैं, जिसमें अभी तक 190 खाली हो चुके हैं। बाकी आवासों को खाली कराने के लिए केंद्रीय विद्यालय क्रमांक तीन के निकट नए क्वार्टर बनाए ज रहे हैं। नए क्वार्टरों के बनने के बाद कर्मचारियों को वहां स्थानांतरित किया जाएगा। तब कहीं जाकर उक्त आवास तोड़े जा सकेंगे। पूर्व में मई तक कोच फैक्टरी का काम शुरू करने की योजना बनाई गई थी। लेकिन कोरोना महामारी के चलते क्वार्टरों के बनाने का काम पूरा नहीं हो सका। अब इन क्वार्टरों का काम पूरा होने पर ही कोच फैक्टरी का निर्माण शुरू हो सकेगा। - नए क्वार्टरों के बनने के बाद ही अब नई कोच फैक्टरी का काम शुरू हो सकेगा। अभी पहली प्राथमिकता पर झांसी- कानपुर दोहरीकरण समेत अन्य परियोजनाओं को पूरा करना है। संदीप माथुर, डीआरएम। हर साल बनेंगे 250 कोच फैक्टरी को स्थापित करने के लिए 454.89 करोड़ के बजट का प्रावधान किया गया है। इस फैक्टरी में हर साल 250 लिंक हॉफमेन बुश कोच (एचएचबी) को सजाने (नवीनीकरण) का काम होगा। फैक्टरी में एक हजार से अधिक युवाओं को स्थायी रोजगार मिल सकेगा। साथ ही परोक्ष रूप से भी सैकड़ों लोगों को काम मिल सकेगा। पलटते नहीं एलएचबी कोच नई कोच फैक्टरी में लिंक हॉफमेन बुश कोच (एचएचबी) का निर्माण होगा। यह एक ऐसी आधुनिक प्रौद्योगिकी है, जो ट्रेन के पटरी से उतरने के दौरान कोचों को पलटने से रोकती है। इन कोचों की गति 160 से 200 किलोमीटर प्रति घंटा तक होती है। इनमें एंटी टेलीस्कोपिक सिस्टम होता है, जिसके कारण यह कोच आसानी से पटरी से नहीं उतर पाते। ये कोच स्टेलनेस स्टील और एल्यूमीनियम के बने होते हैं।

Stations:  Pune Junction/PUNE  
After a row over collection of hefty charges for platform tickets, Indian Railways on Tuesday said to stop crowding at railway stations during Covid-19 pandemic, it has asked local officials to take a decision to increase platform ticket fare.
"Instructions have been issued to divisional railway managers to take local decision to increase platform ticket fare to control the crowd at the stations during Covid-19 pandemic. This decision will be reviewed post the pandemic," said Railway Board Chairman V K Yadav.
The railways issued clarification after Rs 50 printed on a platform ticket

issued at Pune Junction Railway Station went viral on social media.
The railways said the increase the platform ticket at Pune Junction was done mainly to prevent people from coming unnecessarily onto the platforms, and to maintain social distance norms only during Covid-19 period. However, the railways also said that during post-Covid period platform tickets with normal fare will be issued.
Earlier, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh tweeted that during BJP regime platform ticket shot up to Rs 50 from Rs 3 in Congress regime.
"Rs 3 railway platform ticket in Congress raj has become Rs 50 under BJP raj," Singh had tweeted, along with photos of two platform tickets.
While the first ticket, dated December 14, 2011, showed a value of Rs 3, the second one issued at Pune junction, Maharashtra in August 2020 had a price of Rs 50.
Reacting to the issue, the railways said there is nothing new in this as the national transporter taking number of steps to prevent unwanted crowd at station premises since the beginning of the pandemic.
"The objective of Pune junction pricing the platform ticket at Rs 50 is to stop those who unnecessarily come to the station so that social distancing can be followed. Railways have been controlling the platform ticket rates in this way through the start of the corona pandemic," the Railway Ministry tweeted.
While regular train operation were suspended till further notice, at present the railways operating 15 pair special Rajdhani trains and 200 special time tabled, trains connecting different parts of the country.

Central Railways has completed or speeded up several infrastructure projects amidst this lockdown and unlock period.
Amongst the major infra work speeded-up was the construction of the remaining 14.60 Km Kharkopar – Uran line of the 27 Km Belapur -Seawoods – Uran project.The completion of this entire line will cut the distance between Mumbai – Uran by almost 40 to 50%.
The speeding up of the project by the Construction Department of Central Railways will enable railways to complete this important accessibility rail route from Mumbai to Jawaharlal Nehru Port, a CR spokesperson

said.
The Kharkopar – Uran new line construction work is in progress at various sites with the help of construction machinery like, pile boring machines, concrete placer booms, transit mixers, trippers, JCBs, Hydras, Poclains, Hydraulic Jacks etc.
The major construction activities under progress are - superstructure work of cover over the platform at Rajanpada station, foundation and sub-structure work at Nhava-Sheva, Dronagiri and Uran stations, sub-way work at Uran, bridge foundation work at Chainage 10975, stressing and lowering of U-Girder at bridge 7982.
The stretch of Kharkopar – Uran will have 5 stations, 2 major bridges, 41 minor bridges, 2 Road Under Bridges and 4 Road Over Bridges.All precautions are taken to ensure the safety and health of labourers.
The work executed during lockdown/ unlock period and the available gap in the monsoon, will certainly help to recoup the time lost for construction activities in the lockdown.
Around 4.479-hectare land (majority forest land) is yet to be arranged by CIDCO between Chainage 8 km to Chainage 11 km.
The completion of Belapur – Seawoods – Uran railway line, which is the fourth corridor of Central Railway Mumbai Suburban network will ease the travel time of the passengers from Mumbai to JNPT and Uran and will also facilitate the passengers to reach the new emerging airport at Navi Mumbai.
