The train with three AC-2 tier, eight AC-3 tier coaches and two luggage vans will stop at Kharagpur, Tatanagar, Chakradharpur, Rourkela, Jharsuguda, Bilsapur, Raipur, Durg, Nagpur, Bhusawal, Kalyan and Panvel stations between Santragachi and Pune.
At present, two other trains - the bi-weekly Howrah-Pune Duronto Express and the daily Howrah-Pune Azad Hind Express - run, but due to heavy demand, confirmed tickets are often not available.
"The new train will benefit our youngsters who study in Pune and Nagpur," said U.K. Chaturvedi, functionary of Chotanagpur Passengers Association and member of the divisional railway users' consultative committee.
"The train will also help traders and corporate executives who go to Pune often. We will request railways to regularise the train," said Suresh Sonthalia, SCCI president.

jokes, astrology and other trivia, the history of Indian Railway and its major activities will also be part of the Rail Radio service. "We are in the process of finalising arrangements with some leading FM radio stations to provide entertainment as well as information to passengers on board about 1,000 Mail and Express trains including Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto," said a senior railway official.
Railway minister Suresh Prabhu had in his 2016-2017 budget speech proposed to invite FM radio stations for providing train-borne entertainment through public address systems on trains. Currently, only Rajdhani, Duronto and Shatabdi trains are equipped with PA system. Once Rail Radio service is in operation, all these premier trains will be linked with the system," he added. As per the plan, studios will be set up at Railway Board and all zonal headquarters to operationalise Rail Radio service.
Rail Radio service will be helpful during emergency situations like accidents or a natural calamity, the official said. "It will be easier to reach out to passengers during emergency through PA system from headquarters, adding, "There will be a slot for educating and creating awareness among passengers on disaster management." With a view to enhancing passenger comfort, a move has been initiated by the Railways to introduce new amenities including ergonomic seating and easily accessible dustbins in coaches.
Plans to make available the bilingual on board magazine Rail Bandhu in all Mail and Express trains. Currently, the magazine is available only in Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains. There is also a plan to publish Rail Bandhu in regional languages, the official said.

On the 200 metre route, bolts, nuts and plates which are used to fix the tracks with sleepers were not on the fixed place. The sleepers were found damaged and most of them were displaced. When trains arrive at the platform, one can easily see the tracks vibrating and at times even dirty sewage water rises because of the vibration.

The launch of Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) services on Monday will pacify those demanding a suburban rail service for now. But the implementation of a complete service to all parts of the city might be delayed as the Union and State governments negotiate the sharing of costs.
With the Railway Ministry reluctant to share half of the cost and the State government insisting upon the same, the conflict has reached a stalemate which will have to be solved on priority for the suburban rail project to be launched in earnest.
Speaking at

a function where Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu launched several projects on Monday, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah requested the Minister to reconsider the cost-sharing pattern laid out in the draft suburban rail policy of the Railway Ministry.
The State has requested a 50:50 cost-sharing ratio for the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) which will co-ordinate the execution of the suburban rail project. In its draft policy, the Ministry has proposed equity sharing of 20 per cent by both Union and State governments with the remaining 60 per cent to be arranged by loan funds or other sources.
In addition, the State government would also have to bear the cost of land acquisition, leasing of land from the Railways as well as resettlement and rehabilitation. Defending the proposal, Mr. Prabhu said: “It is no longer possible for the Union government to finance infrastructure projects entirely from the budget. Our proposal will ensure that neither the State nor the Centre will be burdened.”
However, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said the State could not pay the costs involved, as land acquisition and costs were high in Bengaluru.
Namma Metro Phase II to be ready by 2020
Commuters waiting for Phase II of Namma Metro to start operations will be able to take a ride on the around 72 km network by March 2020, Union Minister for Statistics and Programme Implementation D.V. Sadananda Gowda on Monday.
He was speaking after conducting a review meeting of various projects under implementation by civic agencies such as the Bangalore Development Authority, Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation and others.
“BMRCL has told me that Phase I will be commissioned by April. They have also expressed confidence of completing Phase II by March 2020. For Phase 2A, which will connect the Outer Ring Road, the cost will be ₹4,200 crore and BMRCL has asked us for financial assistance which we will try to provide,” he said.
Launch of MEMU trains
The launch of Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) trains – which will see a total of five trips being added to the daily train timetable between Bengaluru and its suburbs of Ramanagaram and Whitefield – brought cheer to thousands of supporters of the suburban rail project in the city.
“Today is a historic day for Bengaluru. The success of the citizens movement is bringing both the Centre and State together to recognise the urgent need for suburban trains,” said Tara Krishnaswamy, co-ordinator, Citizens for Bengaluru, a group which organised the #ChukuBukuBeku campaign recently.
Recalling the long standing demand for a suburban rail for the city, H.N. Ananth Kumar, MP, Bengaluru South, said, “I had raised the request for a circular rail during my maiden speech in Parliament in 1995. This is a tremendous step forward towards a full-fledged suburban rail system for Bengaluru.”
Mr. Prabhu also flagged off a tri-weekly express train between Shivamogga and KSR station.

जागरण संवाददाता, कानपुर : गोविंदपुरी स्टेशन को टर्मिनल बनाने के लिए सबसे पहले पुराने प्लेटफार्म को तोड़कर नया रेलवे ट्रैक बिछाना होगा। नया ट्रैक बिछेगा तो सिग्नल आदि को हटाने के साथ कई अन्य काम भी करने होंगे। जब युद्धस्तर पर काम होगा तभी सीआरबी की घोषणा के मुताबिक जून माह तक गोविंदपुरी स्टेशन टर्मिनल बनने लायक हो सकेगा।
.
रेलवे बोर्ड के अध्यक्ष (सीआरबी) एके मित्तल जून तक गोविंदपुरी स्टेशन को टर्मिनल बनाने का लक्ष्य निर्धारित कर गए हैं। इसके लिए कड़ी मशक्कत करनी होगी। गोविंदपुरी अभी कामर्शियल स्टेशन है, आपरेटिंग स्टाफ

यहां नहीं बैठता है। केवल टिकट वितरण और रिजर्वेशन का ही काम होता है। स्टेशन मास्टर से लेकर अन्य स्टाफ की तैनाती करनी होगी।
.
..तो गोविंदपुरी से चलेगी श्रमशक्ति
रेलवे सूत्र बताते हैं कि टर्मिनल बनने पर गोविंदपुरी से ही श्रमशक्ति को चलाने का मसौदा तैयार कर लिया गया है। इसके अलावा कुछ और ट्रेनें दी जा सकती हैं। लगभग आधा दर्जन ट्रेनों के ठहराव वाले गोविंदपुरी स्टेशन पर अभी ट्रेनों का चयन नहीं किया गया है पर श्रमशक्ति तय है।
.
यह है व्यवस्था
पुराना प्लेटफार्म है छोटा : पुराना प्लेटफार्म पांच-छह बोगियों वाला ही है। इस पर 22-24 बोगी की ट्रेन खड़ी नहीं हो सकती। इससे सटा एक प्लेटफार्म बनकर तैयार है जो 26 बोगी ट्रेन के लिए उपयुक्त है।
बिल्डिंग है तैयार : गोविंदपुरी स्टेशन पर बिल्डिंग बनकर तैयार है। रेलवे कर्मी बताते हैं कि इसके बनने तक छह साल में पांच-छह ठेकेदार छोड़कर भाग चुके हैं। समय के साथ लागत बढ़ गई थी।
प्रतीक्षालय में टिकट वितरण : बिल्डिंग में स्थित महिला प्रतीक्षालय में टिकट वितरण व कैश का काम होता है। यहां चीफ बुकिंग सुपरवाइजर हरीप्रकाश बैठते हैं। कैश का काम होने की वजह से इसमें ग्रिल लगवा दी गई है। वहीं पुरुष प्रतीक्षालय में टिकट वितरण होता है।

Kochi: The railways have in-principle approved formation of a new railway station at Elavally in Thrissur-Guruvayur route where the local panchayat is meeting all expenses of land and other infrastructure.
“Divisional Railway Manager Prakash Bhutani on Saturday made the third and final visit of the project area and conveyed the readiness of the railways in allotting a railway station there. It has been our demand for the last 25 years and we’ve even gave in writing to meet the infrastructure cost,” said U.K. Lathika, Elavally Panchayat president.
A senior railway official too confirmed

the move to set up the station. “We’ve earlier recommended for the station there following the local demand. It’s the first time a panchayat is coming forward and agreeing to meet the full establishment cost. This needs the approval at the General Manager level and need not to the taken to the railway board. The same has been now received,” the officer said.
The move is expected to benefit hundreds of people from Elavally and neighbouring three panchayats to have easy access to Thrissur and Guruvayur towns.
“Elavally is located 20 kms from Thrissur. If we go by the road, it will take over an hour while it’s just 10 minutes ride in train. We’re raising the demand since the time the train operation started in the section (Thrissur-Guruvayur),” said T.C. Mohanan, panchayat Vice President.
The panchayat has already started the process to acquire 3.5 acre land for setting up the railway station along with the necessary offices and a rail overbridge, he said. “The land owners have agreed to hand over the title deed and the compensation will be handed over by us after the collector fixes the ‘ponnum-vila’,” he said.
“The railways should develop the upcoming station as a crossing station by setting up a loop line too. This way halting of trains for passage of ones coming from opposite direction in the single line section can be avoided,” said P Krishnakumar, Thrissur Railway Passengers’ Association.
