New Delhi :
Science Express, named ‘Science Express Climate Action Special’ was on Friday flagged off with an aim of creating awareness about climate change. The Science Express will cover 68 stations across the country during its seven-month journey and will spread awareness about climate change. The stations include Agartala and Lumding in the northeast.
The 16-coach Science Express train is a collective effort of ministries of Railways, Environment and Science and Technology. The Science Express will travel to Tripura and north bank of the Brahmaputra for the first time.
eight coaches of the Science Express are focussed on information, caste studies and materials related to various aspects of climate change.
The exhibitions mounted by the Environment Ministry will also showcase the underlying science, impacts, adaption activities, mitigation solutions and policy approaches in a manner that is easy to understand and interesting for not just school students but also the masses.
The focus is on what can be done at school, on roads, at home and in offices and also on the concept of lifestyle choices.
A kids’ zone is set up for children from Class 4 and below to participate in fun-filled activities, game and puzzles in science, mathematics and environment.
The Department of Science and Technology and Department of Biotechnology have set up exhibits and activities in the remaining eight coaches.
Three coaches are fitted with solar panels on the roofs as railways is focusing on clean energy. The train will stop at each station for students and others to visit the exhibitions in coaches. The train will cover 68 stations ending the journey at Gandhinagar station on September 8.
Union Ministers, who pitched for cleaner environment, said on Friday that collaborative efforts and “not blame game” will help address the problems arising out of climate change.
“Climate change is a big problem now. We have to take steps in a concerted and collective way to address it,” Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said at the launch of Science Express.
Referring to Paris Agreement, Prabhu said India’s contribution in the global pact is immense. “India has a major contribution in Paris Agreement. We are part of the solution, we are not part of the problem.”
The main aim of the Paris Agreement, which came into effect on November 4, 2016, is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change and to deal with it effectively.
He said three ministries have collaborated in the Science Express initiative. “The need of the hour is to take steps collectively to achieve the target.”
Welcoming the launch of such train, Minister of State for Environment Anil Madhav Dave said there is need for Science Express to connect with thousands of villages.
Science Express, operational since 2007, has so far travelled 1,42,000 km distance and covered 455 locations in the country.
“Science Express, which will travel to many places, is yet to reach 6.5 lakh villages,” Dave said and added, “Unless we involve common people in creating awareness about climate chane it it will remain confine to seminars only.”
The Environment Minister said everyone has to contribute to address the problem. “We all have a role to play. Blame game is not a solution.”
Science and Technology Minister Harsh Vardhan said the Science Express has got good response since its launch and there is a need for more such trains.
“We need one such train each year for four years to reach out to every corner of the country. There is a need for involvement of common people for creating awareness.”
Referring to the role of transport sector in green house gas emissions, the Railway Minister said steps have been undertaken by his ministry to generate renewable energy like wind and solar power.
“We have firmed up plans to save Rs 41,000 cr in energy bill in the next five years through the use of solar power and other renewable energy,” Prabhu said.

‘Climate Change a Big Threat to Mankind, Can be Tackled Through Collaborative Efforts’ : Suresh Prabhu
‘Four More Trains Must be Run in The Coming Years to Make it an Even Bigger Movement’: Harsh Vardhan

Science Express Joinly flagged off by Railway Minister, Health Minister and Environment Minister

Three Ministers jointly flagged off the 9th phase of Science Express Climate Action Special (SECAS) from Safderjung Railway Station here today. While Minister of State (Independent Charge) of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Shri Anil Madhav Dave and Union Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Harsh Vardhan were present at the railway station, Union Railway Minister, Shri Suresh Prabhu, joined the flagging off event through videoconferencing.
Addressing the gathering, Shri Dave said that in future, the Science Express should reach out to 6.5 lakh villages of the country. He emphasised that till the train is transformed into a peoples’ movement and a vehicle to motivate people to take individual actions and initiatives to fight climate change, it will not succeed in its endeavours on the ground and will only be reduced to becoming a point of discussions in seminars. “What should each individual do, what should the governments do, what should the society do, everyone’s role has to be determined”, Shri Dave pointed out. The Minister highlighted that transparency in work and every pie of taxpayer’s money must be utilized in the right measure and past efforts have to be continued to ensure that the money reaches the people.
Minister of Railways Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu said that Climate Change is a big threat for the mankind and we can tackle this through collaborative efforts. Under the leadership of the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, India played a key role in initiating Climate Action Plan during Paris meet. He also said that Science Express will not just convey the message about climate change, but also generate dialogue and discussion on this burning issue. Science Express will embark on its journey of over 19000 km to cover 68 locations across India till September 8, 2017 and is expected to attract 30 lakh visitors. Climate Action Special will spread awareness on this key issue and augment our efforts to ensure a better future.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Harsh Vardhan said that four more such trains must be run in the coming years to develop the train into an even bigger movement. The Minister also said that the importance of Climate Change can be gauged from the fact that it is the only theme that has been chosen for two consecutive years for Science Express. Recalling his visit to San Fransisco to represent India at two meetings on Mission Innovation and Clean Energy Ministerial last year, the Minister said that 21 big nations of the world acknowledged that led by the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, India has taken unparalleled initiatives in the field of Clean Energy, Mission Innovation, or Climate Change and that India has the ability and the strength to lead the world. He added that the role of school students is most critical in making the Science Express a peoples’ movement. Recounting the statistics, the Minister said over 1.5 crore visitors and students from 33, 801 schools have visited the Science Express till now. The Minister also lauded the role and contribution of all departments and agencies at the Centre and States, as also the educators aboard the train in the running of Science Express.
Secretary, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Shri Ajay Narayan Jha, Secretary, Department of Science & Technology, Shri Ashutosh Sharma, Additional Secretary, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Dr. Amita Prasad, Member, Railway Board, Shri Ravindra Gupta were among those present on the occasion. Secretary, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Shri Ajay Narayan Jha gave the welcome address and Additional Secretary, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Dr. Amita Prasad delivered the vote of thanks.
After today’s flagging off, the SECAS will be open for public viewing at Delhi Cantonment Railway Station on February 18-19, following which it will embark upon its journey across the country. SECAS II will run from February 17 to September 8, 2017 (See Schedule), over 19, 000 km during which it will be exhibited at 68 stations across India. The exhibition will convey a message about Climate Change and will also be a good opportunity to generate dialogue and discussion.
At each halt of SECAS, activities are planned to engage visitors across different age groups to reinforce its message. An exciting and much sought-after Outreach Programme is also conducted in local schools/institutions, along with activities on the railway platforms. In addition, informative take-away material has been made available for wider distribution amongst schools and visitors.
DST has entrusted Vikram A Sarabhai Community Science Centre (VASCSC), Ahmedabad with the task of managing the SECAS across India. VASCSC’s team of qualified, trained and highly motivated Science Communicators travelling with the train explain and interpret the exhibition, answers queries, facilitate the visitors and conduct complementary activities.
The exhibition is open to all, but primarily targets students and teachers. More information is available on the website www.sciencexpress.in. For visit to the exhibition, an email can be sent to sciencexpress@gmail.com, or the team aboard the train can be contacted on 09428405407. School students can participate in the JOS Lab in small batches of up to 20 students, by prior registration.
There is no entry fee for visiting the exhibition. Items such as mobiles, cameras, bags, match-boxes, cigarettes, beedis, tobacco, water bottles, any liquid, and any sharp/ pointed objects. During its run across the country, the Railway station of the respective city will be the venue for visiting the train. The timing for visiting the train is from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Science Express is an innovative mobile science exhibition mounted on a 16-coach AC train which has been custom-built for Department of Science & Technology (DST) by Indian Railways. This unique mobile exhibition was first launched in October 2007 by DST. Since then, it has made eight tours of the country, travelling about 1, 42, 000 km and exhibiting at 455 locations. Over its 1602 exhibition days, Science Express received an overwhelming response and 1.56 crore visitors. SECAS has become the largest, the longest running and the most visited mobile science exhibition.
Climate Change is an important environmental issue, with many short-term and long term impacts. From shifting weather patterns that threaten food production, to rising sea levels that increase the risk of catastrophic flooding, the impacts of climate change are not just global in scope and unprecedented in scale but they also more severely affect the poor and marginalized people. However, there is very little understanding about climate change and its impacts. The state-of-the-art exhibition on board the SECAS aims to create awareness among various sections of society as to how climate change can be combated through mitigation and adaptation.
Science Express, redesigned as SECAS, intends to contribute towards increasing understanding of the science of climate change, the observed and anticipated impacts, and different possible responses. The previous 3 phases of Science Express were rolled out as a joint initiative of DST and MoEFCC as ‘Biodiversity Special’ and showcased the myriad biodiversity of India. Thus it was rational to shift the focus to the theme of climate change, as it will affect the biodiversity of not just India but the entire globe as well.
Of the 16 coaches of SECAS, exhibitions in 8 coaches developed by MoEFCC. These exhibitions have been exclusively devoted to information, case studies and material related to various aspect of climate change, the underlying science, impacts, adaptation activities, mitigation solutions and policy approaches in a manner that is easy to understand and interesting for not just school students, but also the masses. Exhibits and activities have been put up by DST and DBT in other coaches.
Science Express Phase I to IV showcased cutting-edge research in Science and Technology being carried out worldwide. Phase V to VII was based on the theme of biodiversity and as ‘Science Express Biodiversity Special (SEBS)’, it showcased the rich biodiversity of India and its conservation measures. Phase VIII as ‘Science Express Climate Action Special (SECAS)’ highlighted the global challenge of climate change.
SECAS II is a unique collaborative initiative of Department of Science & Technology (DST), Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change (MoEFCC), Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Ministry of Railways and Vikram A Sarabhai Community Science Centre (VASCSC). MoEFCC has asked Wildlife Institute of India (WII) to make a contribution to the initiative.
The Paris Agreement entered into force on November 4, 2016. The Paris Agreement’s central aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change and to strengthen the ability of countries to deal with the impacts of climate change. The first session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA-1) took place in Marrakech in November 2016. The Conference successfully demonstrated to the world that the implementation of the Paris Agreement is underway and the constructive spirit of multilateral cooperation on climate change continues.

The broad themes covered in each exhibition of the coaches are:
· Coach 1: Understanding Climate Change - Insights in the climate as a system, the greenhouse gas effect and the underlying reasons for climate change with key message that the current change in the climate is due to human activities.
· Coach 2: Impact of Climate Change -How temperature rise, monsoon variations, sea level rise are predicted to affect vital sectors like water, agriculture, forests and biodiversity, and human health and ways to reduce these.

हफ्ते भर में निरीक्षण के लिए दिल्ली पहुंच जाएगी चार रैक, गोरखपुर से हर मंगलवार को रवाना होगी ट्रेन
चुनाव बाद शुरू होगी गोरखपुर-बांद्रा अंत्योदय एक्स.
अंत्योदय की खूबियां
एक नजर में
दरभंगा-जालंधर वाया गोरखपुर
अंत्योदय एक्स.
गोरखपुर आशीष श्रीवास्तवआगरा, कोटा और बांद्रा जाने वाले यात्रियों के लिए राहत की खबर है। 2016 के रेल बजट में घोषित गोरखपुर -बांद्रा अन्त्योदय सुपरफास्ट एक्सप्रेस को चुनाव के बाद हरी झण्डी दिखाई जाएगी। साधारण बोगियों वाली अंत्योदय एक्सप्रेस की तीन रैक एक सप्ताह के अंदर निरीक्षण के लिए दिल्ली आ जाएगी। निरीक्षण के बाद इसके चलने की तारीख पर फैसला होगा।इस ट्रेन के चल जाने से मुम्बई जाने वाले करीब दो हजार यात्रियों को काफी राहत मिलेगी। शुरू में यह ट्रेन सप्ताह में एक दिन चलेगी लेकिन अगर यात्रियों की भीड़ बढ़ती रही तो भविष्य में इसे सप्ताह में तीन दिन चलाई जाएगी। इसका टाइम टेबल भी जारी कर दिया गया है। 22922 अंत्योदय सुपरफास्ट गोरखपुर से हर मंगलवार सुबह 4:30 बजे रवाना होगी।इसके साथ ही एक और अंत्योदय दरभंगा से जालंधर तक वाया गोरखपुर चलेगी। हालांकि यह ट्रेन कब से चलेगी इस पर अभी फैसला नहीं हुआ है। इन दोनों ट्रेनों के चल जाने से आम यात्रियों को काफी लाभ मिलेगा। रोजगार की चाहत में गोरखपुर और पूर्वी बिहार से रोजाना दो से ढाई हजार यात्री सफर करते हैं। दो ट्रेनें बढ़ जाने से उन्हें सहूलियत होगी।

बरेली सिटी और रामगंगा के बीच 8.9 किलोमीटर ब्राडगेज ट्रैक पर सवारी गाड़ी चलाने की सीआरएस से अनुमति मिल जाने के बाद पूर्वोत्तर रेलवे ने अब इस ट्रैक पर गाड़ियां चलाने की तैयारी शुरू कर दी है। पीलीभीत-बरेली के बीच चलने वाली पांच जोड़ी ट्रेनों में से ट्रेन कासगंज तक चलाने का प्रस्ताव रेलवे मुख्यालय को भेजा गया है, अनुमति आने के बाद ट्रेन चला दी जाएगी।
पूर्वोत्तर रेलवे के बरेली सिटी-कासगंज ट्रैक के बाद भोजीपुरा-पीलीभीत मीटरगेज को भी ब्राडगेज में तब्दील कर दिया गया। भोजीपुरा-पीलीभीत ब्राडगेज ट्रैक पर पांच जोड़ी ट्रेन चल रही हैं, जो इज्जतनगर तक आती हैं। अब इन ट्रेनों को बरेली सिटी से होते हुए कासगंज तक चलाने की तैयारी की जा रही है। क्योंकि पूर्वोत्तर रेलवे
का बरेली सिटी-रामगंगा के बीच 8.9 किलोमीटर का बचा हुआ ब्राडगेज लाइन का हिस्सा भी पूरी तरह से ओके हो गया है और सीआरएस ने भी इस पर ट्रेन चलाने की अनुमति दे दी है।
बदायूं-कासगंज के बीच की ट्रेनें होंगी मथुरा से लिंक
बदायूं-कासगंज के बीच चल रही तीन जोड़ी ट्रेनें अब सीधे बरेली सिटी स्टेशन तक आएंगी। यह ट्रेनें बरेली सिटी से ऐसे टाइम से चलाई जाएंगी, जिनका टाइम कासगंज से मथुरा जाने वाली ट्रेनों से लिंक होगा। इसका प्रस्ताव भी रेलवे मुख्यालय को भेजा गया है।
इस बार भी पूर्णागिरि की यात्रा बस के सहारे होगी
भोजीपुरा-पीलीभीत मीटरगेज ट्रैक तो ब्राडगेज में तब्दील हो गया है, लेकिन अभी पीलीभीत-टनकपुर के बीच काम चल रहा है। जिसमें करीब चार महीने और लग सकते हैं। ऐसे में होली के बाद मार्च में शुरू होने वाले टनकपुर स्थित पूर्णागिरि मेले में जाने वालों को इस बार भी ट्रेन की सुविधा नहीं मिल पाएगी। वह बस के सहारे ही टनकपुर तक जाएंगे।

BENGALURU: The announcement by the state cabinet allocating Rs 345 crores for the first phase of the suburban rail project came as a major boost for supporters of the #chukubukubeku campaign. Advocates and experts of commuter rail feel the project is finally heading in the right direction and has received the required impetus from the state. Now, the ball is in the court of the Ministry of Railways.
It has been over 12 years since the demand for a suburban rail across the city came up. In the past few years, it gathered momentum, compelling the state government to take it forward.
Alavilli of Citizens for Bengaluru (CfB) said, “We are happy that the Chief Minister has kept his word. So many people coming together and demanding a suburban rail had sent out a strong message. And a responsible government can’t ignore such a movement. However, we have a long way to go. Now, it is for the Railways to come forward and take their share of responsibility. It should not give excuses like lack of funds. They never have such financial issues when it comes to allocating funds to the Mumbai local trains.”
In October 2013, the state government had sent out a proposal for suburban rail to the railway board. “In principle, the project was approved in 2013, only fund allocation was pending. This is a good beginning for the project. I would like the Railways to respond to this and lend its support. We had a lot of expectations from the Railway Minister in the budget as far as fund allocation was concerned, but nevertheless, it is a welcome step,” said Srinidhi, another advocate of commuter rail.
While the existing tracks can be used for the project, supporters of the project say 58 percent of the total investment will go towards upgrading railway infrastructure and doubling of tracks, which, in turn, will help the Railways run more intercity and goods trains.
Sanjeev V Dyamannavar from Praja RAAG, an advocacy group that has been pushing for suburban rail, said, “The state has done its part by making the allocation. Now it is for the Railways to come clear about issues pertaining to cost sharing — if it will be 50:50 or 80:20. Besides, whatever infrastructure fixing the Railways had identified before the budget should be taken up soon.”
“Track doubling between Hosur and Yeshwantpur and quadrupling between Whitefield and Bangalore City is pending even now. Railways should allocate primarily in procuring rakes and that is where it will make the difference,” he added.
