In order to increase the average speed of the existing trains to bring down the journey time, the travel time of more than 500 long-distance trains by up to 120 minutes have been cut down by the Indian Railways. According to a report by Indian Express, the new travel timetable is likely to be made effective from December 2017 and a detailed plan regarding the same will be incorporated in the ‘Trains at a Glance’ timetable to be released November 30. Soon after Piyush Goyal took charge of the ministry earlier this month, several measures – collectively called as ‘innovative timetabling’ – are being taken for popular trains to knock off their runtime stretching up to over an hour-and-half along with increased speed.
The

report further added that around 50 trains (both express and ordinary mail) will be upgraded to ‘superfast’ services after an internal audit of running time of around 700 trains get completed. This overall upgradation work includes trains from several parts of the country.
Here are some popular trains who will get an upgrade in their runtime:-
Hyderabad-Tirupati Express, running 733 km over 14 hours, will now take 100 minutes less.
The Bhopal-Jodhpur Express will reach 95 minutes early.
The 2,330-km journey on the Guwahati-Indore Special will be 115 minutes shorter.
The Ghazipur-Bandra Terminus Express will complete its 1929-km journey 95 minutes earlier.
During the exercise, Railways authorities also figured out that the longer the journey, the higher the scope for time-reduction. Indian Express also reported that several long halts allotted to over 700 popular trains will be shortened by varying minutes. Various small stations and halts where footfalls and sale of tickets are almost nil are being closed. Even for long distance trains, where engine reversal takes around 30-55 minutes, will now be brought down to 20 minutes or less.

Proposal of one more Rajdhani for Western Railway, and none for Central Railway, has angered rail activists, with all of them crying "gross injustice".
WR's new Rajdhani Express, likely to be launched by Diwali, will ply from Bandra to Nizamuddin station in Delhi within 13 hours.
The matter was brought up during CR Mumbai's Divisional Railway Users' Consultative Committee meeting yesterday at CSMT. Committee member Subhash Gupta from Kurla said, "A proposal needs to be sent from Mumbai division to headquarters about a Rajdhani Express."

is set to get one more, which is unfair. CR commuters will be left high and dry again," said software analyst Amol P Nikam, who has been spearheading the campaign 'Rajdhani from CR' for the past two years. Nikam and his friends, Amit Phatak and Sriram V Iyer, have roped in several MPs and railway activists to try and get a formal proposal in place.
"Travelling to Mumbai Central or Borivli to catch these trains is a nightmare for people living on the Harbour and Trans-harbour line and in suburbs beyond Thane," said Phatak.
Support from MPs
"Sixteen trains run between Mumbai and Delhi. But only three dailies go via CR, taking over 24 hours. A couple of weeklies are allotted to CR and people prefer those. This shows the immense potential" MP from Kalyan, Shrikant Shinde stated in his letter to the railway minister.
Nashik MP Hemant Godse, and Dr Subhash Bhamre, Dhule MP and Union Minister of State for Defence, also support the campaign.
Zonal officials in the railways said a plan could be drawn up on the feasibility but nothing could be committed to at this stage.

Bengaluru Division’s successful initiative makes Ministry emulate it in other stations
The Ministry of Railways has decided to discontinue pasting of reservation charts on reserved coaches of all trains originating from some railway stations on an experimental basis for three months. The stations are New Delhi, Hazrat Nizamuddin, Mumbai Central, Mumbai Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Chennai Central, Howrah, and Sealdah.
In a circular to Railway Zones concerned recently, the Ministry asked them to issue necessary instructions to all. The measure should be monitored and the feedback be sent to the Ministry after two months

to enable taking a final decision on the issue, said Vikram Singh, Director (Passenger Marketing), Railway Board, in the circular.
This follows a green initiative by South Western Railway’s Bengauru Division (SBC) that saves about ₹60 lakh on papers. From November 8, 2016, SBC decided not to paste charts on reserved coaches of all trains originating from Bengaluru City and Yeshwantpur Railway Stations. While availability of alternatives to know berth details was one of the reasons, the measure was expected to save substantial money to the national exchequer.
SBC’s Senior Divisional Commercial Manager Sridhar Murthy, who initiated the move, told The Hindu that he felt there were other alternatives to know one’s confirmed berth status.
If the passenger gets a confirmed ticket, berth numbers would be indicated on such tickets. For a waitlisted passenger, an SMS would be sent indicating the berth number if the ticket is confirmed. The facility of 139 is available to know confirmed status by giving the PNR number. Moreover, SBC has installed digital display of charts for tickets confirmed from waitlisted category at City and Yeshvantpur stations, he said. Till now, he has received only one complaint on the issue.
The Division had been spending ₹21 lakh on paper and manpower on pasting charts. Also, paper can be saved contributing to the green initiative, Mr. Murthy said.

A day after nearly five to six women ganged up and allegedly intimidated and assaulted a 54-year-old+ co-passenger following a seat row near Kalyan railway station on Wednesday morning, the GRP on Thursday morning laid trap in the same train and detained four women in the case.
The elderly lady named Charumati Velhad was physically assaulted by a gang of 6 ladies while travelling in a local train from Kalyan to CSMT. The old lady was left with nail marks all over her hands and her clothes were torn. Chirumurti, a bank employee and has her office in CSMT.

residence) and would then take the same train to CSMT.
The victim told the leading daily, “since I found it tough to board the local at Dombivli railway station due to heavy rush, she usually took the down local to Kalyan and from there travelled by the same train to CSMT.” On Wednesday, she boarded the train at 8.36am, and when the train reached Kalyan, some women commuters, in the age group of 25-30 years, objected to her boarding the Kalyan-bound train at Dombivali and asked her to get off. When she refused to do so, the women started abusing and misbehaving with her. They snatched her bag and asked her to stand, but when she refused to budge, they assaulted her and tore my clothes. The assault stopped only after Velhad threatened to file a complaint. On reaching CSMT station, she approached the CSMT GRP who filed a noncognisable offence. According to Velhad, the same group of women had picked a fight with her on the seat issue a few days back too.
Meanwhile, CSMT GRP has registered an NC against the accused and have forwarded the case to Kalyan GRP for futher probe. However, last Thursday, a video showing commuters assaulting another passenger over a seat had gone viral.
