న్యూఢిల్లీ: ఒకే గమ్యానికి వెళ్లే ఏ రైలులోనైనా సాధారణ టికెట్‌తో కూడా ప్రయాణించొచ్చని భారతీయ రైల్వే పేర్కొంది.

New Delhi: President Pranab Mukherjee has approved changes in government rules to allow merger of rail budget with the central budget.

President has given nod to amend Government of India (Allocation of Business) Rules, 1961 in this regard and the department will now prepare both the budgets.
The Union Cabinet had in September last year approved certain landmark budgetary reforms relating to the merger of railway budget with the general budget from 2017-18 onwards.
The presentation of separate railway budget started in 1924, and has continued after independence as a convention rather than under Constitutional provisions.
The Cabinet had also given nod for advancement of the date of budget presentation from the last day of February. The government will present the Union budget 2017-18 on February 1.

Indian Railways is working on a lease agreement to operate the light-weight, energy efficient Spanish Talgo trains on short routes such as Delhi-Amritsar, Delhi-Lucknow, Bengaluru-Chennai or Mumbai-Ahmedabad on a profit-sharing basis.
While finance minister Arun Jaitley is expected to announce the plan in his upcoming budget speech, the specifics are likely to be formalised by February-end, when Talgo CEO Jose Maria Oriol visits India, sources said.
The Talgo plan fits in with the NDA government’s intent to ramp up average speeds of Mail and Express trains from the existing 65 kmph to 100

kmph.
Talgo trains have articulated bogies, light-weight shells with all aluminium coaches and a design that allows natural tilting of coaches, enabling it to negotiate curves at high speed.
While Rajdhani and Shatabdi trains are able to achieve a top speed of 160 kmph, their average speed is much lower on account of their heavier wheel and axle load. Talgo coaches weigh 17 tonnes against the 51 tonnes of conventional Indian coaches. The load per passenger is estimated to be approximately four times lesser in a Talgo.
Talgo being the world’s only company manufacturing such coaches, it is difficult for the Indian Railways to go in for a formal contract, but “a lease agreement could work”, an official said.
In a three-phased trial conducted last year, Talgo trains clocked a top speed of 180 kmph on the Mathura-Palwal route and covered the Delhi-Mumbai distance in 11 hours 48 minutes.
“It has now been proven that the Indian Railways can use the Talgo trains to reduce transit time by 25% without investing on infrastructure,” said Subrata Nath, company director for India and Asia Pacific.

Report is silent on the leasing cost of train ans consequently fares of the Talgo trains as compared to Shatabdi/Raj fares. Given the cost sensitive traffic on IR, the economics should be studied and reported.

Success of MUM-AHM HST depends on many factors, some are with in the control of IR/Govt and many are out of control.

Govt/IR need to manage it in a better way and try to replicate the Japanese Shinkanshen Model which is financially performing best among all the HSTs including the rich European countries like France, Germany, Italy, Spain, GB etc.

conditions are similar to Japanese conditions i.e. very high traffic potential, The major factor which have to be managed is to keep the prices as low as possible so that a substantial fraction of Middle class, upper middle class can afford it.
.
Economic performance of India in next 8 years is the most crucial factor, if GDP/per capita income increase at fast rate, and benefits passed on to all classes (not just the riches), the paying power of public shall be high enough to avail the HST trains.
.
But the current trend in Indian economy, where state govts & central govts are competing to give almost all kind of subsidies/ privileges to strengthen their vote banks does not gel well for the future of Bullet trains. A major portion of subsidies are syphoned off and give rise to black money. Instead subsidies should be provided to manpower intensive industries so that people get employment and become financially strong.
.
Delhi Mumbai Industrial corridor under implementation is expected to bring in much needed development along the MUM-AHM HST route and a good stream of paxs is expected after some years of operation of HST.

In a move that will take Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream project of a Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train a step closer to reality, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) has agreed to give land at the Bandra-Kurla Complex for the first terminus.
A senior bureaucrat, who requested anonymity, said that in a meeting earlier this week, Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis ordered the MMRDA to allot 40,000 sq metres land for the purpose.
Earlier, MMRDA had opposed the proposal as it wanted to use the land for the proposed International Financial Services Centre

(IFSC) at BKC. The state Urban Development Department had asked the Railway Ministry to explore alternatives near Bandra Terminus and Kurla.
“We have given our comments to the state government. So the government will take the final call and convey it to the Central Government,” said UPS Madan, metropolitan commissioner, MMRDA. Sources said MMRDA had raised concerns about losing out on revenue that the IFSC would bring in if the land was allotted for the bullet train terminus.
According to Madan, the underground terminus in BKC will allow construction of the proposed IFSC on MMRDA’s earmarked plot. “The station is planned to be built under the road, so the rest of the land is available for IFSC construction,” he said.
The total cost of the bullet train project is Rs99,000 crore and Maharashtra and Gujarat will share 25% each for the project. The remaining 50% will be borne by the Central government. There are a total of 12 stations on the 508-km route — four of which are in Maharashtra and eight in Gujarat.

BKC as first station of Bullet train is very important decision with very long term implications which otherwisw may have seriously affected the patronage as well as viability of the whole project. BKC is a locality which matches the high end project. Other option (near LTT) could have been a dampener for the ADI bound travellers to opt for HST instead of airlines.
.
Obstacles are gradually and continually being removed and HST project appears to be moving ahead firmly if not very fastly.
