There has to be an analysis to find out why Salem division has almost zero originating train from Salem, the division HQ. Few passenger train that's all. Why can't they develop SA into a full fledged division HQ?

बिलासपुर . देश के सभी जोनों में दक्षिण पूर्व मध्य रेलवे (एसईसीआर) सबसे अधिक कमाई करने वाला जोन है। इसके बावजूद एसईसीआर को विकास कार्यों व यात्री सुविधाओं के विस्तार के लिए अपेक्षित बजट नहीं मिल पाता। यही वजह है कि वर्षों से अपेक्षित सुविधाएं आज तक नहीं मिल सकीं। कई कार्य अधूरे पड़े हैं, कुछ में काम चल भी रहा, तो बेहद धीमी गति से। एसईसीआर ने वर्ष 2016-17 में भी देश के सभी रेलवे जोन से अधिक 19 हजार करोड़ रुपए कमाकर दिए। इसके बावजूद इस बार के बजट में जोन के सिर्फ 5141 करोड़ रुपए ही मिल सके। यह राशि पर्याप्त नहीं मानी जा रही।

मिला वह काफी है, या नहीं इस बात कर लंबी बहस छिड़ सकती है। लेकिन कमाई के अनुसार जितनी अपेक्षा जोन को होती है, उसके मुताबिक बजट नहीं मिला। बता दें कि एसईसीआर ने पिछले वित्तीय वर्ष २०१६-१७ में १९ हजार करोड़ रुपए की कमाई की है। इसमें लोडिंग से १८ हजार करोड़ रुपए की आमदनी हुई। जबकि यात्री परिवहन व अन्य साधनों से 100 करोड़ से अधिक की कमाई। इसके साथ ही एसईसीआर भारतीय रेलवे में कमाई के मामले में फिर नंबर-वन रहा। लेकिन हर बार की तरह इस साल भी बजट में एसईसीआर को ठेंगा ही दिखाया गया। कुल आय की तुलना बिलासपुर जोन को जो मिला, वह काफी नहीं है। जोन के पास 300 से अधिक रेलवे स्टेशन हैं, जिनमें सीसीटीवी कैमरे लगाने के साथ ही कई स्टेशनों के सुधार कार्य, यात्री सुविधाओं का विस्तार, फुट ओवर ब्रिज, ट्विन लाइन, सिग्नल व अन्य कार्य होने हैं। इन सभी कार्यों के लिए दिए गए ५१४१ करोड़ रुपए काफी नहीं हैं। पिछले वर्ष एसईसीआर को ४५२७ करोड़ रुपए बजट में दिए गए थे। पिछले काम भी अधूरे पड़े हैं।

* SECR should have got got 5141 crore and not 5141,000 crore as per news headline.
* SECR had been top earner for IR, and earlier SECR was getting a few hundred crores only. Only since last 3-4 years it is getting above 1000 crors and that fact is appreciable. However it deserve much more.
* IR had always complained that Govt of India have invested more funds on energy inefficient modes of transport i.e. road & airlines than in Railways. But IR does not have right to complain, as it has invested

maximum on loss making zones and projects, starving the profitable ones of funds. Acute underinvestment in SECR with astonishingly low operating ratio of the order of 0.5 is a glaring example.
