The rail electrification will facilitate elimination of diesel traction. Fle photo for representation.
The rail electrification of the 44 Route Km (RKM) Kollam-Punalur and 124 RKM Palakkad-Pollachi-Palani corridors are to be completed along with the 673 RKM km targeted by Southern Railway during 2021-22.
This is part of the ambitious goal to switch over to ‘Green Railways’ by electrifying the balance Broad Gauge (BG) routes by December 2023 to achieve 100 % electrification of BG routes.
The

other BG stretches to be completed are Madurai-Manamadurai (45 RKM), Nagapattinam-Velankanni (10 RKM), Salem-Talaivasal (73 RKM), Pollachi-Podanur (38 RKM), Thalaivasal-Vridhachalam (66 RKM), Tiruchchirappalli-Pudukottai-Karaikudi (90 RKM), Karaikudi-Manamadurai-Virudunagar (124 RKM) and Manamadurai-Ramanathapuram (62 RKM).
The rail electrification will facilitate elimination of diesel traction resulting in significant reduction in its carbon footprint and environmental pollution. In addition, a cent % electrification by 2023 would result in annual savings of ₹ 14,500 crore for railways.
In the 5,080 RKM of Southern Railway, 3,529 RKM accounting for about 70 % has been electrified till March 2021. As envisaged in National Rail Plan & Vision 2024, Southern Railway has also geared up to complete electrification of all the BG routes under it by December 2023. As much as 187 RKM of electrified lines were commissioned in 2020-21. As of May 2021, 71 % of the BG network has been electrified. Instead of making available funds from the budget, electrification is now being financed through Extra Budgetary Resources. Around ₹21,000 crore is expected to be incurred for completion of electrification.
Besides making an environmentally friendly mode of transport, the railways can go for haulage of heavier freight trains and longer passenger trains with high haulage capacity of Electric Locomotives leading to increased throughput. Increased sectional capacity by eliminating detention on account of traction change and reduced operating and maintenance cost of Electric Loco are the benefits from the switch over.

Border Security Force personnel, who were on election duty, were overwhelmed by the hospitality and peaceful atmosphere in Virudhunagar.
While 80 companies of BSF had come to southern districts for election duty, a section of them are returning home by a special train from Madurai. “It was a good experience for us,” said one of the BSF personnel. He was highly appreciative of the hospitality of Tamil Nadu police. “Right from our accommodation and food, we were taken care of well. Besides, whenever we needed to move from one place to another, the vehicle came for our use promptly,” he said.

armed BSF personnel who had come much before the polling day were involved in flag march. They were posted in check post duty and also deployed in those polling booths identified as sensitive and critical.
After polling they were used for round-the-clock inner ring security for counting centres. A BSF soldier became an admirer of the people of Virudhunagar district and its peaceful atmosphere.
“I have done election duty in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. We had tension and had to tackle law and order situations ranging from minor scuffles to major clashes during the election. But here it was absolutely smooth and peaceful,” he said.
Stating that many of his colleagues felt the same during their stay here for nearly 50 days, he said, “Tamil Nadu is the best.”

The help desk under Operation Smile put up by Tamil Nadu Railway Police in Virudhunagar railway station.  
Tamil Nadu Railway Police in association with Childline ‘1098’ have set up a Child Care Desk at Virudhunagar railway station as part of 15-day ‘Operation Smile’ campaign to rescue runaway children from railway stations.
The child care desk was opened on Monday. “We have posted a woman constable at the desk to keep an eye and rescue children who run away from home after quarrel with parents or who get stranded in railway

stations not knowing their way back home,” Inspector of Police (TRP-Virudhunagar), M. Gurusamy said.
The women constables in civvies would try to calm down the frightened children and make them feel at home. After enquiries, the parents would be informed and children handed over to them if their houses are in the neighbourhood.
“If the children are from far off places, the children would be handed over to Childline officials, who would keep them safely at designated homes,” the Inspector said.
On Monday, the TRP personnel spotted a 15-year-old boy at Rajapalayam railway station. Upon enquiry, it was found that the boy from Srivilliputtur was on his way to his grandparents’ house but somehow was left behind at the railway station.
Since, these minor children are vulnerable if they fall into the hands of anti-social elements, rescuing them on time will help ensure their safety, he added.
