Indian Railways: Passenger earnings for FY2017 fall short of budget
As against the budget estimates of Rs 51,012 crore, the Indian Railways earned about Rs 48,000 crore.
The Indian Railways may have earned more in passenger revenues in 2016-17 when compared to the previous year, but it has fallen short of its own budgeted estimates. It had projected Rs 51,012 crore but ended up earning about Rs 48,000 crore, though more than Rs 45,376 crore grossed in 2015-16 by the rail network.

overall estimated earnings for 2016-17, including freight (Rs 1.09 lakh crore) and other receipts (Rs 11,000 crore) lifted the total earnings to Rs 1.68 lakh crore, an all-time high, reported the Economic Times.
Initiatives such as flexi fare (in Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains) and differential pricing during the financial year 2016-17 saw its passenger earnings from reserved categories rise 6.6 percent till March 20, 2017. The Indian Railways earns about 60 percent of its revenues from reserved tickets, according to the Financial Express.
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said that the earnings need to be seen in the context of a challenging environment faced by the fourth-largest rail network in the world.
"Despite the most challenging environment, we have done very well. Various policy interventions at times when we could foresee slump in demand were taken, which were pivotal in bringing back the traffic," the daily quoted the minister as saying.
The operating ratio came at 95 percent, as against the 92 percent forecast by the department. The main reason was the spike in wages and salaries on account of the implementation of the 7th Central Pay Commission's recommendations.
As already known, the Indian Railways had its last separate budget last year; from the current year, it stands merged with the union budget.
The allocation for Indian Railways was raised to Rs 1,31,000 crore for FY2018, up 8.2 percent from Rs 1,21,000 crore in the previous fiscal.
One of the most significant announcements for the Indian Railways was the decision to list three rail PSU — Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation, Indian Railway Finance Corporation and Ircon International Ltd.

नई दिल्लीः आने वाले दिनों में ट्रेन सफर सस्ता हो सकता है। दरअसल, फ्लेक्सी फेयर स्कीम पर कड़ी आलोचना झेल रही रेलवे अब इसमें बड़े बदलाव करने जा रही है। सूत्रों द्वारा मिली जानकारी के मुताबिक फ्लेक्सी फेयर के तहत पहली 50 फीसदी तक की सीट बुकिंग पर अतिरिक्त पैसे नहीं वसूले जाएंगे। 50 फीसदी सीट भरने के बाद से किराया बढ़ना शुरू होगा।
किराए में ये बढ़ौतरी 10 फीसदी की दर से होगी। 50-60 फीसदी सीट भरने पर 10 फीसदी ज्यादा किराया देना होगा। 60-70 फीसदी पर फिर 10 फीसदी ज्यादा किराया देना होगा। राजधानी, दुरंतो, शताब्दी के बेसिक किराए में 10-15 फीसदी की बढ़ौतरी मुमकिन है।

दें कि फ्लेक्सी फेयर स्कीम के तहत 10 फीसदी सीट बुक होने के बाद किराया 10 फीसदी बढ़ जाता है। 10-50 फीसदी की बुकिंग पर किराया 10 फीसदी तक बढ़ता है। वहीं 50 फीसदी सीट बुक होने के बाद किराए में 50 फीसदी तक की बढ़ौतरी होती है।

Rajdhani ke kuch stretch jaise 12440 mein NDLS-BKSC mein 2 seats hai, unko kya 10% kya 50%, 1 seat pe hi hike lag jaye. I think Railways ko sirf GNWL quota jisme 100+ seats ho pe lagana chahiye, RLWL,RSWL which have less than 10 seats uspe nahi.

But they are saying that base fare is going to increase by 10-15 percent which simply means approx increase of fare of 150 to 200. Still no respite.

திருச்சி: திருச்சி - தஞ்சை இரட்டை ரயில் பாதை பணிகள், 90 சதவீதம் முடிந்து விட்டதால், இன்னும் சில மாதங்களில் ரயில்கள் இயக்கப்படும் என, எதிர்பார்க்கப்படுகிறது. புகழ் பெற்ற ஆன்மிக தலங்கள் அதிகம் இருப்பதால், தஞ்சை, நாகை, திருவாரூர் மாவட்டங்களுக்கு, தினமும் ஏராளமான சுற்றுலா பயணிகள் வந்து செல்கின்றனர். எனவே, 'திருச்சியிலிருந்து தஞ்சை வரை, இரட்டை ரயில் பாதை அமைக்க வேண்டும்' என்ற கோரிக்கை எழுந்தது.
ரூ.190 கோடி : கடந்த, 2011ம் ஆண்டு மத்திய பட்ஜெட்டில், திருச்சி - தஞ்சை இரட்டை ரயில் பாதை அமைக்க, முதல் கட்டமாக, 190 கோடி ரூபாய் ஒதுக்கீடு செய்யப்பட்டது. திட்டத்தின் மொத்த மதிப்பு, 450 கோடி ரூபாய்.திருச்சி, பொன்மலையில் துவங்கும் இந்த பாதை, தஞ்சை ரயில் நிலையத்தில் முடியும் வகையில், 49 கி.மீ.,க்கு திட்டமிடப்பட்டது. நில ஆர்ஜித பணிகள் முடிந்து, இரண்டு ஆண்டுகளுக்கு முன், ரயில் பாதை அமைக்கும் பணிகள் துவங்கின. இந்த வழித்தடத்தில், 13 பெரிய, 90 சிறிய பாலங்கள், மூன்று இடங்களில் சுரங்கப்பாதைகள் அமைக்க திட்டமிடப்பட்டு, பணிகள் நடந்தன.

: மேலும், இரட்டை ரயில் பாதையை கையாளும் வகையில், பொன்மலை, பூதலுார், சோளகம்பட்டி உள்ளிட்ட அனைத்து ரயில் நிலையங்களையும் விரிவாக்கம் செய்யும் பணியும் நடந்தது. இப்படி, இரண்டு ஆண்டுகளாக தீவிரமாக நடந்த இரட்டை ரயில் பாதை பணி, தற்போது, 90 சதவீதம் முடிவடைந்துள்ளது. ஏற்கனவே, ரயில்வே நிர்வாகம், '2017 ஏப்ரலில், இரண்டாவது வழித்தடத்தில் ரயில் இயக்கப்படும்' என அறிவித்திருந்தது. ஆனால், 'அதற்குள் பணிகள் முடிய வாய்ப்பில்லை என்பதால், இன்னும், மூன்று மாதங்களில், பணிகள் முழுமையாக நிறைவுற்று, ஜூலையில், இரட்டை பாதை பயன்பாட்டுக்கு வரும்' என, ரயில்வே துறையினர் தெரிவிக்கின்றனர்.அதன்பின், திருச்சியிலிருந்து தஞ்சைக்கு, எக்ஸ்பிரஸ் ரயிலில், 30 நிமிடங்களிலும், பாசஞ்சர் ரயிலில், 50 நிமிடங்களிலும் செல்ல முடியும்.

அடைக்கலம் வரவேற்றார். கிளை தலைவர் சுந்தரராஜூலு முன்னிலை வகித்தார். இதில் கலந்துகொண்ட தென்னக ரெயில்வே மதுரை கோட்ட மேலாளர் சுனில்குமார் கர்க் ஓய்வூதியர்களுடன் ரெயில் நிலையத்தை சுத்தமாக வைத்துக்கொள்வோம் என்ற உறுதிமொழி எடுத்தார். பின்னர் ரெயில் நிலையம் முன்பு மரக்கன்றுகள் நட்டு, ரெயில் நிலையத்தில் சுத்தம் செய்யும் பணியை அவர் தொடங்கி வைத்தார்.
இதனையடுத்து சுனில்குமார் கர்க் நிருபர்களிடம் கூறியதாவது:–
சென்னையில் இருந்து காரைக்குடி, சிவகங்கை, மானாமதுரை வழியாக செங்கோட்டைக்கு வாரம் 2 முறை இயக்கப்பட்டு வரும் சிலம்பு எக்ஸ்பிரஸ் ரெயில், மக்களிடம் உள்ள வரவேற்பை பொறுத்து வாரத்திற்கு 3 முறை இயக்க ரெயில்வே மேல் அதிகாரிகளுடன் ஆலோசனை நடத்தி நடவடிக்கை மேற்கொள்ளப்படும்.
அகல ரெயில் பாதை பணி
சென்னை–ராமேசுவரம் எக்ஸ்பிரஸ் ரெயிலின் நேரம், பயணிகள் கேட்டுக்கொண்டததால் தான் மாற்றியமைக்கப்பட்டது. மீண்டும் நேரத்தை மாற்றம் செய்ய வேண்டுமானால், அதை ரெயில்வே ஆலோசனைக்குழு கூட்டத்தில் கருத்து தெரிவித்து அதன்பிறகே மாற்ற இயலும். தற்போது நடைபெற்று வரும் காரைக்குடி–பட்டுக்கோட்டை அகல ரெயில் பாதை பணிகள் வருகிற 2018–ம் ஆண்டிற்குள் நிறைவு பெற வாய்ப்புள்ளது. இந்த பணிகள் முழுவதும் முடிந்த பின்னர் மீட்டர்கேஜ் ரெயில் பாதையாக இருந்தபோது இயக்கப்பட்ட ரெயில்கள் முதற்கட்டமாக இயக்கப்படும்.
மன்னார்குடி–திருச்சி வரை இயக்கப்படும் பயணிகள் ரெயிலில் கழிப்பறை இல்லை என்று புகார்கள் வருகின்றன. இந்த பயணிகள் ரெயிலான டெமு ரெயிலில் கழிப்பறை, குடிதண்ணீர் வசதி செய்யப்படாது. அதற்கு பதிலாக ஏதேனும் ஒரு ரெயில் நிலையத்தில் கூடுதலாக அரை மணி நேரம் இந்த ரெயில் நின்று செல்ல நடவடிக்கை எடுக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. ஹவுரா–திருச்சி ரெயிலை காரைக்குடி வரை நீட்டிக்க வாய்ப்பு குறைவு. ஏனெனில் இந்த ரெயில் நீண்ட தூரம் ரெயிலாக உள்ளதால் அந்த ரெயிலை பராமரிப்பு வசதிக்கான பிட் அமைப்பு காரைக்குடி ரெயில் நிலையத்தில் இல்லை.
இவ்வாறு அவர் கூறினார்.

The issue with the mergers and takeovers of Tribunals is that the independent functioning of some of them could stop soon.
Under The Finance Bill, 2017, Tribunals and Appellate Tribunals that fall under eight different laws are now to be replaced or will be taken over by existing Tribunals. The existing Tribunals that will subsume these themselves fall under seven other Acts, which otherwise will not fall under the purview of the Finance Bill.
These are:

The Competition Appellate Tribunal under The Competition Act, 2002, will be taken over by the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal;
- Airports Economic Regulatory Authority Appellate Tribunal under The Airports Economic Regulatory Authority of India Act, 2008
- The Cyber Appellate Tribunal under The Information Technology Act, 2000 will be replaced by the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal;
- The National Highways Tribunal under The Control of National Highways (Land and Traffic) Act, 2002 will be taken over by the Airport Appellate Tribunal;
- The Employees Provident Fund Appellate Tribunal under The Employees Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952 will now be replaced by the Industrial Tribunal;
- The Copyright Board under The Copyright Act, 1957 will now be taken over by the Intellectual Property Appellate Board;
- The Railways Rates Tribunal under The Railways Act, 1989 will be replaced by the Railway Claims Tribunal; and
- The Appellate Tribunal for Foreign Exchange under The Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999 will now fall under the Appellate Tribunal.
The issue with the mergers and takeovers of such Tribunals is that the independent functioning of some of them could stop soon. The Supreme Court in 2014, while ruling on the National Tax Tribunal case, said that Tribunals have powers similar to those of High Courts and the judiciary, and that quasi-judicial Tribunals could function as departments of various Ministries.
The Centre is usually a party to disputes brought before quite a few of these Tribunals, for instance, like the Railways Rates Tribunal. The Centre is also the authority in appointing people to head these Tribunals, leading to a clear conflict of interest in the introduction and facilitation of takeovers of these bodies.

Iconic routes such as the Coast Starlight and the Empire Builder could close without federal funding.
The Crescent from New York to New Orleans, the Empire Builder from Chicago to Portland and the Coast Starlight from Seattle to Los Angeles — these and many other great American trains could be about to reach the end of the line, by order of President Trump.
The president’s so-called “skinny budget” for 2018 “terminates Federal support for Amtrak’s long-distance train services, which have long been inefficient and incur the vast majority of Amtrak’s operating losses.”

perhaps, Trump wants to kill the Trains that Make America Great. Amtrak now covers an unprecedented 94 per cent of its annual operating costs from revenue, so it hardly seems necessary in pure financial terms – this is essentially politically motivated.
“It would mean the only public transport from coast to coast will be flying, or three days and nights on a bus. To me, that's third world – these trains include some world-class rail routes, with the Chicago-San Francisco California Zephyr a candidate for one of the world's greatest train rides.”

Bhubaneswar, Mar 20 (PTI) Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu today said Rs 36,480 crore is being pumped in to expand the rail network in Odisha to tap the state’s vast tourism potential and abundant mineral and natural resources.
Launching around half-a-dozen projects at a function here, Prabhu said the Centre is focusing on strengthening the railway infrastructure and connectivity in Odisha to enable the state to chug on the path of development.
Noting that the state is endowed with a very long coastline, ports, mines and minerals, exotic tourist spots and pilgrim centres, the

railway minister said huge investment is required to improve the rail connectivity substantially.
Therefore, with an emphasis on building a robust railway network in Odisha, the NDA government raised budgetary allocation for the rail sector in the state to Rs 1,465 crore in 2014-15, Rs 3,712 crore in 2015-16 and Rs 4,682 crore in 2016-17, showing substantial hike from Rs 812.5 crore allocated by the previous UPA regime, he said.
The allocation was further raised to Rs 5,102 crore in 2017-18 to put the state on the fast-track of progress, Prabhu said.
Stating that the Rs 3.5 lakh crore investment is proposed by the railways, he said steps have already been taken for implementing a number of projects with an investment of Rs 36,480 crore in Odisha.
Besides expanding the railway network, the goal is to improve the railway stations and improve train services and facilities for the passengers, he added.
Prabhu said the Odisha government was also extending cooperation for implementation of rail projects and the state has also entered into joint ventures with railways for the development of the sector.
He said the railways would also take steps for marketing of handicraft products and other items produced by tribal communities and women self help groups (SHGs).
Launching various projects during his visit, the rail minister inaugurated the extension of Khurda Road-Rajsunakhala passenger up to Bolagarh Road.
