A day after the selfie craze inside a running train led to the deaths of several youths, the Eastern Railway authorities on Friday appealed to passengers to be careful and issued guidelines. A railway spokesman said they have already launched campaigns in print, television and social media to make passengers aware of the risks of using phones while travelling.
In a horrific turn of events, a youth fell from a running train between Bali and Liluah railway stations while trying to click a selfie on Thursday night. Four of his friends were hit by another train while rushing towards the accident spot. According to eyewitnesses, the four friends got down at Bali station and started running through the railway track when a
speeding train knocked them down, killing three on the spot and severely injuring the fourth.
“We have launched campaigns in various media platforms urging people not to use a phone or listen to music while crossing the railway tracks and not to click photographs while travelling,” Chief Public Relations Officer of Eastern Railways Rabi Mahapatra said on Friday.
Stating that photography is “strictly prohibited” inside the railway station premises and trains without prior permission, he warned passengers of strict action if the rules are not followed. “Photography inside the railway stations and the carriages is always strictly prohibited as these are considered restricted areas. However, with the emergence of phone cameras people often indulge in taking selfies in these places,” Mahapatra explained.
“We have detained and fined several passengers in the past for breaking the rule. Our RPF officials are instructed to monitor the passengers and catch anyone clicking photographs inside the train compartment. Anyone breaking the rule would be penalised,” he added.

Apr 10 2017 (07:50)   Woes of coastal region will be addressed: Sadananda Gowda

Minister promises operation of Kudla Express from Mangaluru Central
Union Minister for Statistics and Programme Implementation D.V. Sadananda Gowda on Sunday said that the Indian Railways will strive to respond to development demands from Mangaluru railway region, which, at present, is spread across three Railway Zones.
He was speaking after Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu remotely flagged off the Mangaluru-Yeshwantpur Kudla Express; launched electrification of Mangaluru-Chervathur line; doubling of Jokatte-Panambur line and a railway siding at Thokur Station, here.
is aware that Mangaluru region is bereft of major railway amenities as it is served by the Southern, the South Western and Konkan Railways. Immediately taking charge as the Railway Minister, he had commenced the initiative of creating Mangaluru Railway Division; but it could not be done for technical reasons.
However, he now has initiated the move to relocate Konkan Railway’s regional office from Karwar to Mangaluru. This should culminate in some kind of reprieve for the region, he said.
The Minister said that the flagging off Kudla Express was the happiest movement in his life as he is giving something back to people who have nurtured him. He said that he had clearly told Mr. Prabhu that he would not attend any Railway function unless Kudla Express was introduced.
Mr. Sadananda Gowda said that when he had announced Kudla Express in the 2014 Railway Budget, he wanted it between Mangaluru Central and Yeshwantpur.
He is aware of the difficulties of the people reaching Mangaluru Junction from where it starts at present and has told Mr. Prabhu to get the train to Mangaluru Central, located inside the city. Soon, the train would come to Central and the inconvenient timings of its running too would be sorted out, he said.
Government Chief Whip in Legislative Council Ivan D’Souza launched an onslaught on Southern Railway which controls Mangaluru Central and Mangaluru Junction.
He said that the zone has been indifferent to the needs of the region despite it getting more than half of its revenue from New Mangalore Port.
Mr. D’Souza urged Southern Railway to be considerate to the region’s demand and urged it to introduce a night train between Bengaluru and Mangaluru.
Member of Parliament Nalin Kumar Kateel, Forest Minister B. Ramanath Rai and others were present.
The fare between Mangaluru and Yeshwantpur is ₹ 130 on Kudla Express, which has second class chair cars and general second class sitting coaches. It is ₹ 85 to Hassan, ₹ 95 to Shravanabelagola and ₹ 115 to Kunigal.

Dec 27 2016 (08:39)   Railways Asks WB Govt to Take Charge of All Ongoing & New Projects

Kolkata: The Railways has sent a letter to the West Bengal government stating that from now on the state has to take responsibilities for all ongoing and upcoming projects of the suburban system as well as Metro Railway.
According to a highly-placed source at the state secretariat Nabanna, the letter addressed to the Chief Secretary, the Transport Secretary and the Urban Development Secretary, was sent last week from the Railways Works Planning Directorate.
It stated that the Railways, in the last few years had incurred losses of around to Rs 15,000 crore due
to delay in projects including Metro Rail projects, which were either delayed or stalled because of various hindrances.
In the letter, the Railways has asked the state government to take responsibilities about removal and rehabilitation of encroaches on its land, feasibility study of any proposed project and so on, the officer said.
It has also proposed the state can utilise funds meant for urban transport projects or can levy different forms of taxes and development fees to releasing project costs, he said.
Incidentally, a couple of months back the Centre had verbally given similar proposals to the state government, which the latter had dismissed, the officer added.

It is a right step, and should have been taken much earlier.
Just like other metro cities, WB Govt too take charge of/ financially participate in the Metro and suburban train operation. State Govt is major beneficiary of the economic activities discharged by the Kolkata Metro suburban commuters and the tax/duties paid by them/ their business/ their employers. Hence state govt must come forward to share its responsibility instead of asking funds from centre to subsidise it.
Why should poor passengers/citizens of other poorer states bear the brunt of this subsidy
given to relatively richer Kolkata populace?
Kolkata Metro is the only metro train running on heavy subsidy born by IR, rest are all joint ventures of State Govt/IR/PPP ventures.
Declaration of Kolkata as 17th zone of IR is height of political expediency which bleed IR to the tune of INR 1000 crores every year & injustice to rest of the states of India.

Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 26 () As part of its programme to upgrade facilities for rail users, Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu said here today that 200 more stations and some additional trains would be provided with Wi-Fi in 2017.
Dedicating six Wi-Fi facilities to rail users at Kannur, Ernakulam and Kollam at a function here, he said 100 stations had been fitted with Wi-Fi this year and the target was to double this number in 2017.
"More trains will also would be provided with Wi-Fi next year," he said.
objective is to have Wi-Fi facility in all railway stations in small cities and towns," he said.
The Minister said steps were also on to construct escalators in stations, he said.
Welcoming the Kerala government's decision to sign a Joint Venture with Railways for development projects in the state, he said that as partners, the railways would be developed in the state.
"The Centre and state will have equity in the venture and funds for the projects will be raised through market borrowings with the consent of the state government," he said.
The resources spent under the JV would be in addition to funds earmarked in the Railway budget, he added.
Stating that investment in railway infrastructure can bring development to its optimum level in Kerala, Prabhu said he had asked some banks to prepare a business plan for the state.
Prabhu admitted that there was a lack of railway investment in Kerala and said the NDA government's move was to reverse that trend.
Referring to remittances to the state from Non-Resident Keralites, he said even they could invest in railway projects.
"They can develop a railway station", he said, adding that the key objective was to join hands for development.
The Railways was also looking out for resources other than its normal revenue.
They were also looking into the possibility of coverting its hospitals as medical college hospitals, he said.
Chief Minister Pinrayi Vijayan and G Sudhakaran, PWD Minister and in charge of Railways were among those present.
