Mar 25 2017 (14:55)   CRS gives Green signal for Pollachi-Podanur Railway Line

Coimbatore: The newly converted Pollachi-Podanur broad gauge track was given the safety go-ahead by the Commissioner for Railway Safety, southern circle, on Friday. Train service is expected to begin from May, railway sources said.
This is expected to be a boon for thousands of residents of Coimbatore and Pollachi, who commute between the towns on a daily basis, as well as for frequent travellers to the southern district.
Railway safety commissioner KA Manohar inspected the track over Thursday and Friday. He said the technical aspects of the track is “satisfactory” and he was

“authorising running of passenger trains”. “I have inspected the technical aspects of the track and it has been found satisfactory. I will be submitting a report to the railway ministry, from where it will be communicated to the railway board,” he told.
The commissioner inspected the 40 km track by motor trolley. After he was satisfied with the track, the team conducted speed trials with diesel locomotives on Friday afternoon. Though the maximum speed allowed for passenger trains in the country is 105 kmph, the commissioner will fix the speed limit for the track and different stretches within it. “I will specify the speed limits in my report,” said Manoharan.
However, sources expect the specified speed limit to vary between 60 kmph to 80 kmph, which means the train will cover the distance in 45 minutes, including a stoppage at Kinathukidavu. A drive to Pollachi from Coimbatore during peak hour traffic takes anywhere between 1 to 2.5 hours during weekdays.
Though developing a station in Chettipalayam has been a long-pending demand, the safety commissioner said his report will not include it. “The Chettipalayam station was not there when the meter gauge was closed and broad gauge conversion began. So, as off now, there is no such stoppage,” he said.
Meanwhile, many commuters expressed excitement over the clearance. “I take two hours to drive to and from Pollachi. Besides, the wastage of and time and huge stress on the driver,” said Avinash G, a textile designer.
“Even by bus, it takes two hours and I always hold my life in my hand because so many bus accidents occur on the route,” said D Charles, an accountant from Pollachi, who travels to Nagarajapuram for work every day.

Requested SR / IR that In this Pollachi to Podanur 40 km thickly populated route ,every 10 km a station have to be provided.
So the existing station of Chettipalayam has to be revived in between Kinathukkadavu to Podanur jn.
Moreover a New Railway Station have to be provided in Kovilpalayam in between the Pollachi to Kinathukkadavu .
...
more...
So as the trains are operated smoothly without too much crossing delay in the Podanur to Pollachi section.

Mar 25 2017 (13:32)   Indian Railway: No move to extend flexi-fare policy to mail,express trains

The Indian Railways will regularly review its flexi-fare policy to ensure maximum utilisation of train accommodation, the minister added.(PTI)
There is no proposal to extend to mail/express and superfast trains the flexi-fares currently applicable only to Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains, Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu said today. He also announced that from April 1 this year, the Railways will introduce an alternative train accommodation system scheme (Vikalp) whereby passengers booked in one train can be shifted to another train in the same category is a seat is available.
He said in the Rajya

Sabha that Rs 30,000 crore loss incurred by the Railways cannot be recovered through flexi-fares.
The Indian Railways will regularly review its flexi-fare policy to ensure maximum utilisation of train accommodation, the minister added.
“We will continuously review the flexi-fare scheme and the Railway Board has been issued instructions by me to regularly review it. This will help provide user-friendly and better facilities to passengers as also generate more revenue for Railways,” he said while replying to questions.
“At present, there is no proposal to extend the flexi fare system to other Mail/Express/Superfast trains,” he said in a written reply.
The Minister said from April 1, 2017, a new Vikalp/ATAS (Alternative Train Accomodation System) scheme is being expanded to provide shifting the waiting list passengers of one train across all categories of trains without realisation of any difference of fare or grant of refund.
“A passenger booked in a normal Mail/Express train can be shifted to an alternate Mail/Express, Rajdhani, Humsafar, Duronto, Shatabadi, Special train or Suvidha train in the same class of accomodation,” he said.
The Railway Minister said the flexi-fare system had been introduced in all Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains with effect from September 9, 2016.
Prabhu, however, said to improve the occupancy of all trains including Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains, some steps have been taken that include 10 per cent rebate in basic fare on vacant berths/seats booked after preparations of first chart in all trains on an experimental basis for six months.
“Tatkal quota has been reduced in flexi-fare trains from maximum of 30 per cent to 10 per cent of total availability of berths to enhance availability of berths during the advance reservation period,” he said.

When flexifare has failed in premium Raj/Shat/Duro trains, where is question of implementing in other trains.
The real issue is whether IR shall dilute or do away with flexi fare or shall it be continuing the existing flexifare and vacant flexifare seats.

Reduction of Tatkal quota is again done by IR to extract even more from the targeted section of paxs!!!
-
Of the 20% seats released from tatkal quota and transferred to flexi quota
only 2% seats shall be at normal fare (NF),
next
...
more...
2% at 110% of NF,
next 2% at 120% of NF,
next 2 % at 130% of NF,
next 2% at 140% of NF, and
rest 10% at 150% of NF, so
the avg collection of these seats via flexi fare shall be 135% higher (for SL, ACII, ACC classec) and 130% for ACIII class
-
For example, in case of NZM-MAS Duronto for ACII/ACIII/SL classes,
3925/2835/1210 is the Normal fare in Rs and
4425/3255/1410 is the the Tatkal fare in Rs
5565/3740/1620 is the max. FlexiFarein Rs.
520/420/200 is extra fare paid for tatkal ticket
1640/905/410 is extra fare paid for Flexifare ticket by majority of paxs (top slab).
-
Above shows how draconian Flexifare is as compared to Tatkal, Hence tatkal seats reduced from 30% to just 10% and converted to flexi seats.
The tatkal surcharge collected as % of normal fare works out to be only 16.5/19.7/24.5, which is much less than the avg surcharge of 35%(for ACII,ACC,SL)/ 30%(for ACIII) for flexifare.
-
Other benefit to IR is flexifare can be collected 4 months in advance and Tatkal fare is collected just a day before journey, so interest on money is additional benefit to IR.
