GUWAHATI: The Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) said it had sacrificed punctuality on certain sections of Assam to avoid elephant-train collisions.
"Important trains like the Rajdhani and the Jan Shatabdi running between Guwahati and Furkating are taking about an hour more to reach their destinations. Freight trains are also getting delayed. Despite this, our utmost priority is reducing elephant mortality," NFR chief public relations officer Pranav Jyoti Sharma said.

GUWAHATI: The Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) said it had sacrificed punctuality on certain sections of Assam to avoid elephant-train collisions.
"Important trains like the Rajdhani and the Jan Shatabdi running between Guwahati and Furkating are taking about an hour more to reach their destinations. Freight trains are also getting delayed. Despite this, our utmost priority is reducing elephant mortality," NFR chief public relations officer Pranav Jyoti Sharma said.
Between September 27 and December 17 last year, at least seven elephants died in collision with trains. Even though these deaths occurred outside identified locations where elephants normally cross tracks, NFR said intensified patrolling and coordination with the forest department and wildlife NGOs could prevent more such mishaps.
Sharma said 12 collisions had been averted in the past three months, four of them in January alone, because the railway control unit at Lumding received alerts on elephant movement. The unit, in turn, advised engine drivers to slow down. One forest official has also been deputed to the control room to assist in dissemination of information on elephant movement.
According to the NFR, altogether 47 elephants were saved from colliding with moving trains between 2013 and 2016.
A joint meeting between the district administration, forest department and railways on December 8 and December 20 decided to streamline information exchange at the field level.
"Along with joint patrolling by railway and forest staff, a WhatsApp group has been created to share information on a real-time basis. Contact numbers of station masters have been given to forest officials for speedy information exchange. Train drivers and guards have also been sensitized on the importance of elephant conservation," Sharma said.
Death of elephants due to collision with moving trains has been a matter of concern in Assam. Experts said, over the years, elephants were also seen using new areas for movement across the tracks. They added that the animals get scattered and move on to new routes when they are chased by humans.
Railway officials said most of the accidents in recent months occurred in places where there was no speed restriction for trains.
In 2012, at least four elephants were run over by trains in different parts of Assam. The year before, five were killed in collision with moving trains; three of them died in Jorhat district's Gibbon Wildlife Sanctuary. Seven elephants were killed in a train collision in Karbi Anglong and Deepor Beel areas in 2010.

New Delhi: Railways will tomorrow announce a new policy for its catering services which shall separate the functioning of its cooking and food distribution onboard.
The new catering policy to be announced by Railway minister Suresh Prabhu envisages fulfilling aspirations of public regarding healthy and hygienic food as it was flooded with complaints against food quality.
While the food will be prepared at the state-of-the-art base kitchens, it would be distributed through service providers from hospitality industry, according to the new policy which aims to attract reputed food-chain players from the market.
new policy replacing the seven-year-old one gives back the IRCTC, a railways PSU, onboard catering responsibility for majority of trains including all the new ones.
The Railways PSU was relieved from the responsibility through the current policy effected by the then Railway minister Mamata Banerjee in 2010.
"IRCTC would begin to manage catering service in a phased manner. IRCTC would unbundle catering service by creating distribution primarily between food preparation and its distribution," Prabhu had announced in the 2016 Rail Budget.
Railway catering policy-2017 also empowers the IRCTC to fix menu and tariff in consultation with Railway Board.
In order to achieve social objective, the policy allows 33 percent sub quota for women in allotment of stalls at all stations.
"Besides, self-help groups will also be empaneled in catering services to promote employment opportunities in various regions," Railway Ministry sources said, adding "milk stalls would be alloted at all stations through open tender."
Stringent guidelines have been incorporated in the policy to set up base kitchens at major junctions and also to restrict IRCTC from outsourcing private licensees outrightly.
Perpetual renewal of food stalls at stations has been done away with and the new policy envisages that tenure of stalls shall be of five years only.
The new policy, which encourages e-catering system, was finalised after taking suggestions from all stakeholders.

Somebody prepares someone distributes - all need to make profit, hence final price will be higher than if one organisation involved in preparation and distribution.
No mechanism to help passengers who are charged high. Not every passenger can tweet and get help, nor do all approach consumer court. So internal complaint system which effectively punishes overcharging is needed.

Accounting Reforms will help the railways make investment and pricing-related assessments fair and objective
The recent Union Budget has changed the way we think about Railways, with the Railway Budget subsumed into the General Budget. This is a trigger for structural reforms in the Railways. A proper transparent accounting system is part of that template of reform. As a commercial operating entity, Indian Railways (IR) has certain obligations. Investors would want to assess the fair state of IR profitability and other key financial parameters before taking investment decisions. As users, the public would like easy access to its costing parameters. Does AC-3 service really cost IR twice or thrice that of sleeper class? If not, then what should reasonable ticket price differentials
between various classes of services be? Freight users want similar information for various freight classes and distances. What are the returns on an IR project, even if publicly funded? If the union government is going to reimburse IR for social costs that are not commercially-driven, how are these costs computed? Chances are that even IR may not be in a position to furnish this information in a scientific manner. This does not mean that IR does not have any data related to costs and accounts. It does, but there are some serious limitations. The Accounting Reforms (AR) project of IR is intended to address this limitation and more.
In its current form, the AR project comprises three distinct modules. Module 1 involves preparation of financial accounts of IR on ‘Accrual Basis’. This means preparing financial statements such that a transaction is recognised in books as and when it happens. This is in contrast with the current practice, where a transaction is recognised only when cash flows (‘cash-basis’). Outstanding revenues or cost liabilities are hence not shown in accounts in case cash exchange does not take place. Module 2 relates to development of a Performance Costing framework. This relates to objective assessment of unit costs of various activities (business-wise/service-wise/segment-wise) undertaken by Railways. Module 3 relates to Outcome Budgeting, which links financial outlays to outcomes. Assessing impact of budget outlays on doubling, tripling or new rolling stock technology acquisition to outcomes such as safety and network speed would become possible through this. That said, what is surprising is that despite a wider concurrence on the urgent need to implement AR, the project hardly moved until recently. AR was first mentioned in the budget speech (February, 2003) by the then Minister of Railways (MR). Following the 2003 announcement, the AR project was sanctioned in the Railways’ works programme 2004-05. IR appointed a consultant in 2006 for undertaking necessary studies. Though the consultant submitted its report in July 2010, gaps in their output vis-à-vis the terms of reference remained. Things went back and forth and remained stalled over the next few years.
The project witnessed a new push only in December, 2014, when the Ministry of Railways decided to implement accrual accounting pilot (Module 1) in Ajmer division and Ajmer group of workshops. The scope of the Ajmer pilot was subsequently expanded to include North Western Railway. A similar pilot was also kicked off in RCF Kapurthala. In the February, 2016 budget speech, the Minister of Railways further announced implementing the project on ‘mission mode’. As a result, ‘Mission Beyond book-keeping’ was instituted and a project implementation organisation was created. Accordingly, 2016 saw reasonable progress in AR, and a fresh strategic plan to roll out AR across the Railways was drawn up. A synopsis of this plan is shown in the table.
AR has the potential to transform the decision making framework in IR by making key investment and pricing related assessments fair and objective. Simply put, it would tell IR where it needs to cut costs and where it needs to spend more. Ability to take organisational decisions through robust costing and accounting frameworks should be a game changer for IR. But then, is a conclusion finally in sight? At least as per IR plans, it looks so. The project has seen serious slippages in the past. Sure there would be challenges. It is therefore critical to ensure that the much needed Mission Mode approach be followed in its true spirit and the project be regularly monitored from the top.

New Delhi: The finance ministry on Monday invited proposals from investment bankers to help the government sell shares in three railway enterprises.
The three companies controlled by the railway ministry are Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corp. (IRCTC), IRCON International Ltd and Indian Railway Finance Corp. Ltd (IRFC).
In advertisements published in newspapers on Monday, the Department of Investment and Public Asset Management (DIPAM), under the finance ministry, sought proposals from investment bankers by 16 March to manage the initial public offerings and advise the government in listing the stocks.
IRCTC has been a pioneer in e-commerce in India and handles almost 60% of railway ticket bookings, IRFC is the sole financier of railway projects by sourcing low-cost funds from the market. IRCON, the infrastructure and engineering arm of the railways, also builds projects overseas for governments and private parties.
IRFC has railway assets worth Rs1,37,038 crore till March 2016. IRCON which has operations in several states of India and overseas including Malaysia, Nepal, Bangladesh, Mozambique, Ethiopia, Afghanistan, UK, Algeria and Sri Lanka has net worth of around Rs3,530 crore in 2015-16. Similarly, IRCTC which provides online ticketing service for Indian Railways along with catering in trains and rail neer has a Rs1,500 crore turnover.
Finance minister Arun Jaitley, in his budget speech on 1 February, said their listing will foster greater public accountability and unlock the true value of these companies.
Under the disinvestment policy, public sector enterprises (PSEs) having a positive net-worth, no accumulated losses and having earned profits in three preceding consecutive years are required to achieve 25% public holding.
A former railway board chairman speaking under condition of anonymity said the railways had already appointed SBI Capitals Markets Ltd to do a study for listing of these PSUs and the work would overlap now. He said the move is going to impact railways severely, especially IRFC, because it’s the biggest funding agency for the national monopoly carrier.
The government has set an ambitious Rs72,500-crore disinvestment target for 2017-18, against the revised estimate of Rs45,500 crore for 2016-17.
It has so far collected Rs27,917 crore through stake sales in public sector units in 2016-17, implying it aims to sell stakes (in state-owned companies) worth around Rs17,583 crore by 31 March.
The cabinet committee on economic affairs (CCEA) last month approved the public listing of five state-owned non-life insurance companies and reduction of the government’s stake in them to 75% from 100%.
Oriental Insurance Co., National Insurance Co., New India Assurance, United India Insurance and national reinsurer General Insurance Corp. of India, or GIC Re, are the five companies that will be listed on the stock exchanges.
The government will pare its stakes in these companies either through the sale of new shares or an offer for sale or through a combination of both, Jaitley said at a press conference on 1 February.
The government has also put in place a revised mechanism to ensure time-bound listing of identified PSEs on the stock exchanges.
Now the administrative department concerned and DIPAM will draw up a list of eligible PSEs for listing within a month from the finalization of audited accounts of the last financial year.
In cases of listing through a sale of government of India’s stake, CCEA approval for listing of identified PSEs will be obtained by DIPAM.
An inter-ministerial group will be constituted for the appointment of advisers to guide the process of disinvestment.
The process for the appointment of advisers for the transaction, including merchant bankers and legal advisers, will be completed within a period of eight weeks from the date of the constitution of the inter-ministerial group.
The total process—till the stock is listed on the stock market—will be completed within 165 days of the administrative department agreeing to an initial public offering, or IPO.

India’s railways – the leading consumer of power – are to become the nation’s largest producer of solar energy.
According to plans laid out in India’s latest union budget, almost every railway station in the country will soon be powered by solar.
Addressing House members, India’s Finance Minsiter Arun Jaitley said that the project “is proposed to feed at least 7,000 stations with solar power in the medium term.”
of the end of March 2015, India had 7,137 railway stations – according to data released by the Minister of Railways, Suresh Prabhu.
The move is a part of the Indian Railways’ mission to harness 1,000 megawatts (MW) of solar energy by 2020.
Minister Jaitley revealed that work had already begun on 300 stations, with the number expected to increase to 2,000 soon.
Under the project, stations will be fitted with rooftop solar power systems in addition to the setting up of solar power plants through developer mode along with a long term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) by the railways.
Furthermore, to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, the government intends to expand the country’s sourcing of solar power.
In 2016, Indian Railways announced its partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to set up 5 gigawatts (GW) of solar power capacity on top of its plans to launch a tender for 150 MW of rooftop systems.
Minister Suresh Prabhu stated that Indian Railways can play a key role in India achieving renewable energy targets and decreasing the country’s dependence on fossil fuels.
Earlier this month, a new report revealed that if the cost of renewable energy and storage continues to fall at current rates, India could phase out coal power completely by 2050 – significantly outperforming its commitments under the Paris Agreement.
The news follows the announcement that India’s recent solar energy tender has attracted bids from 20 project developers from across the world, with a cumulative capacity of 7.5 GW, a 10 times over-subscription.

BHOPAL: Multinational soft drink giants have gone out of favour of Indian Railways, especially the West Central Railways (WCR) that has directed to ban these drinks from the stalls in the 300 station under its jurisdiction.
In a recent directive, WCR has banned sale of colas including those manufactured by Pepsi and Coke from stations under its jurisdiction in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
The decision has been taken after complaints about presence of harmful chemicals in soft drinks. Bhopal, Habibganj and Itarsi railway station are the major stations where these colas will be
off counters.
Spokesperson for West Central railway, Surendra Yadav told TOI, "We have been regularly getting complaints about presence of harmful chemicals in cold drinks manufactured by these companies. We have sent a letter to those manufacturing these products for verification on the claims of complainants. Until they give us a report, all the stock has been removed from the stations and tender of these firms will not be renewed."
WCR is divided into three divisions including Bhopal, Jabalpur and Kota. WCR have also written to Kota division to call back all the stock of colas.
Union minister of state for health Faggan Singh Kulaste in November 2016 had come up with a study details of which he presented in Lok Sabha stating that lead and other heavy metals such as cadmium and chromium have been found in samples of prominent cold drinks.
WCR also issued a list of companies eligible to sell their products on railway stations. Surprisingly, names of all top MNC brands were missing from the list. Now, senior officials have started inspections to ensure that stocks of these products are completely removed from the stalls, said Yadav.

लखनऊ कार्यालय संवाददाताहोली पर रेल आरक्षण को लेकर मारामारी है। लखनऊ मेल, एसी सुपरफास्ट, वैशाली एक्सप्रेस जैसी ट्रेनें एक महीने पहले ही फुल हो चुकी हैं। वहीं, एक दिन पहले चालू हुई निरस्त ट्रेन मऊ आनंद विहार, गोरखपुर आनंद विहार में भी 10 मार्च का आरक्षण फुल हो चुका है जबकि डबल डेकर का संचालन 28 फरवरी से किया जाना है। होली पर 10 मार्च को ट्रेन की वेटिंग 131 पहुंच चुकी है। ऐसे में दिल्ली से आने वाले यात्रियों के लिए वॉल्वो ही सहारा है। कोहरे की वजह से रेलवे ने 15 दिसम्बर से मऊ आनंद विहार, गोरखपुर आनंदविहार और डबल डेकर का संचालन 28 फरवरी तक निरस्त कर रखा था। दो दिन पहले मऊ आनंद विहार व गोरखपुर आनंदविहार एक्सप्रेस का संचालन फिर से बहाल कर दिया गया जबकि डबल डेकर को 28 फरवरी से ही चलाया जाएगा। ट्रेनों के संचालन बहाल होने के बाद ट्रेनों में एक दिन...
में ही आरक्षण फुल हो गया है। हालांकि गोमती एक्सप्रेस के सेकेंड क्लास में 100 सीटें खाली है। स्पेशल ट्रेनें भी फुल: होली पर यात्रियों को राहत देने के लिए चलाई गई स्पेशल ट्रेनें भी फुल हो चुकी है। रेलवे ने यात्रियों के लिए आनंद विहार लखनऊ एक्सप्रेस, गोरखपुर आनंद विहार, छपरा आनंदविहार समेत करीब आधा दर्जन ट्रेनों का संचालन शुरू किया है। इसमें 9 व 10 मार्च को चलने वाली अधिकतर ट्रेनें फुल हो चुकी है जबकि आनंद विहार छपरा एक्सप्रेस में 8 मार्च को सेकेंड एसी में 4 सीटें बची हैं। अब बसों का ही सहारा: दिल्ली से लखनऊ के बीच रोज 25 से अधिक ट्रेनों का संचालन किया जाता है। इसके अलावा सप्ताह में एक दिन वह स्पेशल ट्रेनें मिला कर 40 से अधिक ट्रेनें दिल्ली से लखनऊ के बीच चलती है। इन सभी ट्रेनों में होली पर आरक्षण फुल हो गया है। अब आरामदायक सफर के लिए यात्री वॉल्वो में अभी से ऑनलाइन टिकट बुक करा कर यात्र कर सकते हैं। वहीं, परिवहन विभाग की ओर से पहले से टिकट बुक कराने पर यात्रियों को 5 से 15 प्रतिशत तक डिस्काउंट भी दिया जाएगा।
