Apr 03 2017 (07:19)   Rail travellers oppose proposal

South Western Railway’s proposal to divert two existing trains – Bengaluru-Karwar/Kannur and Yeshwantpur-Karwar – to the newly commissioned Bengaluru-Hassan line has not gone down well with rail users.
SWR, in letters to Railway Users’ Committee members, had said the diversion would drastically reduce the distance between Bengaluru and Mangaluru and also save travel time. Train Nos. 16517/518 and 16523/524 Bengaluru-Kannur/Karwar-Bengaluru and Train No. 16515/516 Yeshwantpur-Karwar run via Mysuru and Arsikere respectively.
Pradeep Kumar, a traveller from Mysuru, told The Hindu that the diversion of the Karwar/Kannur express would affect residents of Mysuru and
surrounding areas as it is the only connecting train to Udupi and Karwar. “Let the SWR introduce a new train via the newly commissioned line,” he said.
Vinay Kumar, from Kadur, a member of SWR’s Zonal Railway Users’ Consultative Committee, said if the Yeshwantpur-Karwar day train is to be diverted via the new line, travellers between Tumakuru and Arsikere should be provided a connecting service to the train.

If 16517 / 18 goes via the shorter route, then it will be the shortest route to bangalore compared to 16527 /28 which goes via coimbatore. The best option i feel is to run seperate train 16517 / 18 skipping mlore central and going via mlore junction, thus avoiding all loco reversals, and 16523 /24 via mlore central.

SWR is already running a train from SBC to CAN via CBE. So, SWR should run a full fledged train to KAWR via new line. The new TT train can go Via MAQ. From MAQ, SR can run any number of trains to CAN. For MYS pax to MAQ and beyond in KR, a daily train can be run from mysore upto VSG or LTT via Konkan. Atleast now, there should not be any more reasons.

Dec 21 2016 (12:50)   Govt may hike train fares after Budget to check its mounting losses

The government might hike rail passenger fares and freight rates after the budget to stave off mounting losses, a top official said on Tuesday, as finance minister Arun Jaitley said passengers should pay for services they receive.
Speaking weeks before he presents India’s first combined railway and Union budget in February, Jaitley made a strong pitch for the railways to outsource non-core activities such as hospitality.
“Railways got caught in a battle where populism prevailed over performance... the basic principle on which any commercial establishment is to be run is that consumers must
pay for the services they receive,” Jaitley told reporters.
The railway ministry official said the public-sector behemoth suffered an annual loss of Rs 33,000 crore on account of passenger fare subsidy but any hike announcement might come after the budget as it wants to assess budgetary support.
“We want the government to help railways bear the cost of the losses but so far, the finance ministry has refused any assistance,” said an official who did not wish to be quoted.

The ministry is also likely to move the cabinet soon, seeking approval for setting up a committee to recommend rates of passenger fare and freight.
India’s colonial-era railways carries more than 23 million passengers daily but creaky infrastructure, poor maintenance and shoddy revenue generation has hurt the world’s fourth-largest rail network.
Successive governments have backed away from reforms and especially hiking passenger fares, which is a politically sensitive topic.

As a result, the country’s largest employer runs many trains at rock-bottom fares and struggles to balance its books.
For example, for every Rs 100 spent on a rail passenger, the railways recovers just Rs 57 while the other Rs 43 is government subsidy. The poor financial health has taken a toll on rail infrastructure and accidents are common.
A number of state elections are scheduled for February-March, including the politically crucial Uttar Pradesh and Punjab.
The finance minister said to remain competitive against highways and airlines, railways would have to strengthen its performance and internal management system.
“The core competence of railways is to drive trains. Hospitality may not be the core competence of the railways and what is not within its core competence, the principle of outsourcing -- accepted the world over -- can be a logical addition,” Jaitley said.
He also dismissed Opposition criticism of the government’s recall of Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 notes and said the Reserve Bank of India had enough currency for circulation.
“We were prepared. There has been no day when RBI did not dispense adequate cash to banks. Even today, RBI has more than adequate cash to last not just till December 30 but even beyond it,” Jaitley said.
Millions have lined up outside banks and ATMs since the high-value banknotes were scrapped last month but a cash crunch and frequent rule changes have irked the Opposition.
The finance minister also pitched for a shift to digital transactions, announcing small traders and businesses with a turnover of up to Rs 2 crore would pay less tax if they accept payments through banking and digital platforms. The presumptive tax on digital and cheque payments will be 6% instead of 8%.
Jaitley said the government will continue to incentivise the shift from cash transactions as there had been a 300-400% increase in digital and e-payments.

കണ്ണൂർ ∙ യാത്രക്കാരുടെ ശ്രദ്ധയ്ക്ക്. പണി പൂർത്തിയായെങ്കിലും ദക്ഷിണ റെയിൽവേ ജനറൽ മാനേജരുടെ സന്ദർശനം വൈകുന്നതു മൂലം എസ്കലേറ്ററും വിശ്രമമുറികളും യാത്രക്കാർക്കായി തൽക്കാലം തുറന്നു തരാൻ നിർവാഹമില്ല. തടസ്സമുണ്ടായതിൽ റെയിൽവേ ഖേദിക്കുന്നു. ഓണസമ്മാനമായി പ്രഖ്യാപിച്ച റെയിൽവേ വികസന പ്രവർത്തനങ്ങളാണ് ജനറൽ മാനേജരുടെ വരവ് നീണ്ടുപോയതിനെ തുടർന്നു യാത്രക്കാർക്കു നിഷേധിക്കുന്നത്.
ഓരോ ദിവസവും റെയിൽവേ സ്റ്റേഷനിലെ തിരക്ക് അനിയന്ത്രിതമായിക്കൊണ്ടിരിക്കുകയാണെങ്കിലും‍ ജിഎം വന്നാലേ എസ്കലേറ്ററും വിശ്രമമുറിയും തുറന്നുകൊടുക്കൂ എന്ന പിടിവാശിയിലാണ് റെയിൽവേ. ഈ മാസം 15നു നടത്താനിരുന്ന സന്ദർശനം അടുത്തമാസത്തേക്കു മാറ്റിയതോടെയാണ് പ്രവൃത്തി പൂർത്തിയായിട്ടും ഉദ്ഘാടകനെ കാത്തു മാത്രമിരിക്കുന്നത്. എസ്കലേറ്ററിനു പുറമേ എട്ടു വിശ്രമമുറികളും ജിഎമ്മിനെ കാത്തിരിക്കുകയാണ്.
ഓരോ ദിവസവും 750 രൂപ വരുമാനമുള്ള ഏഴു വിശ്രമമുറികളും ഒരു ഡോർമറ്ററിയും അനാവശ്യമായി അടച്ചിട്ടിരിക്കുന്നതിനെതിരെ വ്യാപക വിമർശനമുണ്ട്. വരുമാനത്തിന്റെ കാര്യത്തിൽ എ ഗ്രേഡ് സ്റ്റേഷനിൽനിന്ന് എ വൺ ഗ്രേഡിലേക്ക് ഉയരാനുള്ള ശ്രമത്തിലാണ് റെയിൽവേ. എ

This is the waste of public money and property. Waiting for officials and higher ups. Better to wait for RM or PM or even president to come and inaugrate it for us. Till that time let passengers suffer as they are doing now. If officials have seriously seen the plight of passengers they will never have opted for such kind of attitude to delay the inaugration.

If RM can inaugurate through video conference, why cant these officials follow that. After all if they come to station what is the benefit for the station? It was scheduled last time BJP meet was at Kozhikode. But it was postponed due to some reason. RM inaugurated other station facilities and went.
