పరిశుభ్రతకు పెద్దపీట
మూడుసార్లు ఉత్తమ స్టేషన్‌గా ఎంపిక
అనకాపల్లి: గ్రామీణ జిల్లా కేంద్రంగా పేరొందిన అనకాపల్లి రైల్వేస్టేషన్‌ అభివృద్ధి పథంలో దూసుకుపోతోంది. ఒక పక్క పరిశుభ్రతకు పెద్దపీట వేస్తూ, మరోపక్క ప్రయాణికులకు మెరుగైన సౌకర్యాలు కల్పిస్తూ అందరి ప్రసంశలు అందుకుంటోంది. మూడుసార్లు సికింద్రాబాద్‌ డివిజన్‌ పరిధిలో ఉత్తమ స్టేషన్‌గా అవార్డులు కైవసం చేసుకుంది. రైల్వే వారోత్సవాలు పురస్కరించుకొని అనకాపల్లి రైల్వేస్టేషన్‌పై ప్రత్యేక కథనం.
విజయవాడ డివిజన్‌ పరిధిలో 111 స్టేషన్‌లు ఉన్నాయి. అందులో 10 ఏగ్రేడ్‌ స్టేషన్‌లలో అనకాపల్లి స్టేషన్‌ ఒకటి. ఒకప్పుడు అభివృద్ధికి ఆమడ దూరంలో

ఉన్న స్టేషన్‌ నేడు ఎటుచూసినా మెరుగైన సౌకర్యాలతో కనువిందు చేస్తోంది. రైల్వే ప్రయాణికులకు అన్ని రకాల సౌకర్యాల కల్పనకు అధికారులు కృషి చేస్తున్నారు. రోజుకు రూ.నాలుగు నుంచి ఐదు లక్షల వరకు స్టేషన్‌కు టిక్కెట్ల అమ్మకం, రిజర్వేషన్‌ ద్వారా ఆదాయం వస్తుంది. గత రెండేళ్లలో స్టేషన్‌ ముఖచిత్రమే మారిపోయింది. రూ.కోట్లు ఖర్చుచేసి ప్రయాణికులకు సౌకర్యాలు కల్పించారు. ముందుగా మూడు ప్లాట్‌ఫాంలను ఆధునీకరించారు. రెండో నెంబరు ప్లాట్‌ఫాంపై రూ.88 లక్షలతో ఎస్కలేటర్‌ ఏర్పాటు చేసి అందుబాటులోకి తీసుకొచ్చారు. రూ.1.50 లక్షలతో టిక్కెట్‌ వెండింగ్‌ మిషన్లు సమకూర్చారు. మోదీ స్వచ్ఛభారత్‌ స్ఫూర్తితో స్టేషన్‌ను అద్దంలా మార్చేశారు. స్టేషన్‌ సూపరింటెండెంట్‌ కొమ్ముశెట్టి పార్థసారథి పర్యవేక్షణలో 1, 2, 3 ప్లాట్‌ఫారాలపై వివిధ రకాల మొక్కలను నాటారు. అంతేకాకుండా ప్రత్యేక పారిశుద్ధ్య సిబ్బందితో ప్రతిరోజూ పరిశుభ్రత పనులు చేపడుతూ స్టేషన్‌ను పరిశుభ్రతకు చిరునామాగా మార్చారు. చెత్తను సైతం ఎక్కడా వేయకుండా 42కి పైగా డస్ట్‌బిన్‌లు ఏర్పాటు చేశారు. ఎంపీ నిధులతో ప్రయాణికులు కూర్చోవడానికి వీలుగా పర్మినెంట్‌ కూర్చీలను ప్రయాణికులకు అందుబాటులోకి తీసుకొనివచ్చారు. రూ.లక్షలు వ్యయంతో శుద్ధ తాగునీటి ప్లాంట్‌ను ఏర్పాటు చేసి తక్కువ ధరకు పరిశుభ్రమైన చల్లటి నీటిని అందిస్తున్నారు. ఇలా స్టేషన్‌ను అన్ని విభాగాల్లో ఉత్తమంగా తీర్చిదిద్దడం వల్ల వరుసగా 2014, 2015, 2016లో రైల్వే వారోత్సవాలు సికింద్రబాద్‌ డివిజన్‌లో అనకాపల్లి రైల్వేస్టేషన్‌కి మూడుసార్లు ఉత్తమ రైల్వేస్టేషన్‌గా అవార్డు ఇచ్చారు. ఈ ఏడాదీ అవార్డు రేస్‌లో ఉంది. స్టేషన్‌ తనిఖీకి వచ్చిన విజయవాడ, సికింద్రాబాద్‌ డివిజన్‌ పరిధిలో ఉన్నత అధికారులు స్టేషణ్‌లో సౌకర్యాలు, పరిశుభ్రతకు ముగ్ధులైపోతున్నారు. త్వరలో రూ.1.88లక్షలతో కాలిబాట వంతెన, రెండో నెంబరు ప్లాట్‌ఫాంపై రూ.90 లక్షలతో మరో ఎస్కలేటర్‌ను ఏర్పాటు చేయడానికి సన్నాహాలు చేస్తున్నారు. నేడో రేపు గూడ్స్‌షెడ్డు వద్ద అదనపు బుకింగ్‌ కౌంటర్‌ ప్రారంభించి అందుబాటులోకి తీసుకొని రానున్నారు.
అందరి సహకారంతోనే స్టేషన్‌ అభివృద్ధి
అనకాపల్లి రైల్వేస్టేషన్‌ నేడు అందరి సహకారంతోనే దినదినాభివృద్ధి చెందుతుంది. ఇప్పటికే మూడుసార్లు డివిజన్‌లో ఉత్తమ స్టేషన్‌గా అనకాపల్లి రైల్వేస్టేషన్‌కు రైల్వే వారోత్సవాల్లో జీఎమ్‌ చేతుల మీదుగా అవార్డులు వచ్చాయి. గతంలోనూ పలుమార్లు డీఆర్‌ఎమ్‌ అవార్డులు వచ్చాయి. ఈ ఏడాది ఏప్రిల్‌ 10వ తేదీ నుంచి సికింద్రాబాద్‌లో జరగబోయే రైల్వే వారోత్సవాల్లో మరోసారి అవార్డు వరించనున్నదని ఆశాభావం వ్యక్తం చేస్తున్నాం. స్టేషన్‌ అభివృధ్ధిలో ఎంపీ ముత్తంశెట్టి శ్రీనివాసరావు సహకారంతోపాటు విజయవాడ డివిజన్‌ డీఆర్‌ఎమ్‌, సికింద్రాబాద్‌ డివిజన్‌ జీఎమ్‌ అధికారులు కృషి ఉంది. మరింతగా అభివృధ్ధి చేసి రైల్వేలోని అన్ని డివిజన్‌లలో అనకాపల్లి స్టేషన్‌ను ఉత్తమంగా తీర్చుదిద్దుతాం.

ఈనాడు-అమరావతి:బెంగళూరు(యశ్వంత్‌పూర్‌)- విశాఖపట్నం మధ్య రెండు నెలల కిందట ప్రవేశపెట్టిన వీక్లీ ఎక్స్‌ప్రెస్‌ను రోజువారీ రైలుగా మార్చాలని కేంద్ర పట్టణాభివృద్ధి శాఖ మంత్రి ఎం.వెంకయ్యనాయుడు కోరారు. ఈ మేరకు రైల్వే మంత్రి సురేష్‌ప్రభుకు లేఖ రాశారు. దీనిపై రైల్వేబోర్డు, నైరుతి (సౌత్‌వెస్ట్రర్న్‌ జోన్‌) రైల్వే అధికారులు వెనువెంటనే స్పందించారు. బెంగళూరు నుంచి విశాఖపట్నం వరకు నడుపుతున్న వీక్లీ (స్పెషల్‌) ఎక్స్‌ప్రెస్‌ రైలుకు ప్రయాణికుల రద్దీ ఎక్కువగా ఉందని, దీని రెగ్యులర్‌ కోసం రైల్వే బోర్డుకు సిఫారసు చేయాలని కర్ణాటకలోని హుబ్బళ్లి కేంద్రంగా ఉన్న నైరుతి రైల్వేజోన్‌ నిర్ణయించింది. ఈ మేరకు బోర్డుకు సోమవారం నివేదించినట్లు విశ్వసనీయంగా తెలిసింది. ఈ ప్రత్యేక రైలు విషయంలో మొదటినుంచి ఆటంకాలు కల్పిస్తున్న ఈస్ట్‌కోస్ట్‌ రైల్వేజోన్‌.. విశాఖ నుంచి తిరుగు ప్రయాణంలో డైనమిక్‌ ఛార్జీలతో ప్రయాణికులపై భారం మోపుతోంది. విశాఖ నుంచి బెంగళూరుకు నిత్యం నాలుగు విమానాలు ఉండటం, ఇదే సమయంలో రైలు ప్రయాణికుల సమస్యలను గుర్తించిన వెంకయ్య బెంగళూరు-విశాఖ ప్రత్యేక రైలుపై స్పందించి ప్రతిరోజూ నడపాలని సురేష్‌ప్రభుకు లేఖ రాశారు.

ఈనాడు - అమరావతి: వారానికి ఒకసారి నడిచే బెంగళూరు-విశాఖపట్నం ఎక్స్‌ప్రెస్‌ పట్టాలు ఎక్కినా ప్రయాణికులకు మరో సమస్య వచ్చి పడింది. దేశంలో ఎక్కడా లేనివిధంగా ఈ రైలుకు రెండురకాల ఛార్జీల విధానం అమల్లోకి వచ్చింది. బెంగళూరు నుంచి విశాఖపట్నం వరకు తత్కాల్‌ ఛార్జీలు వసూలు చేస్తుండగా.. విశాఖపట్నం నుంచి బెంగళూరుకు డైనమిక్‌ (సువిధ రైలు)ఛార్జీలు అమల్లోకి వచ్చాయి. దీంతో తిరుగుప్రయాణంలో ప్రయాణికులు రెట్టింపు ఛార్జీలు చెల్లించాల్సి వస్తోంది. ఈ రైలును నడిపే విషయంలో తొలి నుంచి పేచీ పెడుతూ వచ్చిన తూర్పుకోస్తా (ఈస్ట్‌కోస్ట్‌) రైల్వే జోన్‌ ఆఖరి నిమిషంలో వెనక్కి తగ్గినట్టేతగ్గి ప్రయాణికులపై భారం మోపింది.
బెంగళూరు-విశాఖపట్నంల మధ్య రద్దీని దృష్టిలో పెట్టుకుని నైరుతి రైల్వే(సౌత్‌వెస్ట్రర్న్‌) చొరవ తీసుకుని వీక్లీ(వారానికి ఒక రోజు) ప్రత్యేక రైలు ప్రవేశపెట్టింది. రెండు, మూడునెలల తిరిగాక ప్రయాణికుల నుంచి డిమాండ్‌ను వివరిస్తూ రెగ్యులర్‌ రైలుగా బోర్డుకు ప్రతిపాదించాలని అనుకుంది. ప్రస్తుతానికి ఈ రైల్లో తత్కాల్‌ ఛార్జీలు వసూలు చేయాలని నిర్ణయించింది. ఇదే విషయాన్ని ఈ రైలు ప్రయాణించే మార్గంలోని ఇతర జోన్లకూ సమాచారం పంపింది. రెగ్యులర్‌ రైళ్ల కంటే తత్కాల్‌ రైల్వే ఛార్జీ విశాఖ వరకు

స్లీపర్‌క్లాస్‌లో రూ. 110 అధికంగా ఉంటుంది. ఈ రైలు తిరుగుప్రయాణం మొదలయ్యే విశాఖపట్నం ఈస్ట్‌కోస్ట్‌ జోన్‌లో ఉంది. అక్కడి అధికారులు మాత్రం సువిధరైలుగా సాఫ్ట్‌వేర్‌లో నమోదుచేయించారు. దీంతో సమస్యగా మారింది.
ఛార్జీల్లో ఎంత తేడా?
సువిధ రైళ్లలో విమాన టికెట్ల తరహాలో ఛార్జీలుంటాయి. టికెట్లు అయిపోయేకొద్ది ఛార్జీ పెరుగుతూ పోతుంటుంది. మొదటి తీసుకున్నవారికంటే ఆ తర్వాత, చివర్లో తీసుకున్నవారు 50 శాతం నుంచి 200 శాతం వరకు అదనంగా చెల్లించాల్సి ఉంటుంది. ఈ రైలుకు ఆదరణ లేదన్న అభిప్రాయం కల్పించడానికే తూర్పుకోస్తా జోన్‌ సువిధ రైలుగా మార్పించిందన్న ఆరోపణలు వ్యక్తం అవుతున్నాయి.
బెంగళూరు(యశ్వంత్‌పూర్‌)-విశాఖపట్నం ఎక్స్‌ప్రెస్‌ రెండువైపులా ఛార్జీల్ని పరిశీలిస్తే..
* బెంగళూరు నుంచి విశాఖకు స్లీపర్‌ క్లాస్‌ ఛార్జీ రూ. 625.
* ఇదే రైలు విశాఖ నుంచి బెంగళూరుకు స్లీపర్‌ టికెట్‌ రూ. 1,865.
* థర్డ్‌ఏసీలో విశాఖకు రూ. 1,685.
* విశాఖ నుంచి బెంగళూరుకు ఇదే రైల్లో రూ. 3,405.

Thanks to the South Western Railway (SWR), the long-pending demand for introduction of an originating train from Vizag to Bengaluru was realised with the launch of the 06579 Yesvantapur-Visakhapatnam weekly special Tatkal express.
Though the East Coast Railway (ECoR) had failed to introduce a direct train to cater to the high demand for berths from Vizag to Bengaluru, it had taken over the special train, launched by the SWR in the past. After running it for sometime, it gave the most inconvenient timings, converted it into a Suvidha special with dynamic fare and finally did not renew it.

software engineer from Bengaluru, Venky, says how popular the special Tatkal express is. “I had booked a bus ticket for Rs.2,500 to travel to Vizag for Deepavali and after seeing on Twitter that SWR was running a Tatkal Special, I cancelled my bus ticket and booked my ticket in the special train. By the time, I completed booking my ticket the availability position came down from 378 to 77 in just half-an-hour.”
“The train was delayed at the starting point itself in view of the late intimation to passengers. All the coaches were jam-packed within four hours after announcement of the train. The timings are very convenient not only to the people of Visakhapatnam but also to those from cities and towns in Andhra Pradesh.”
“During the course of interaction with fellow passengers, I came to know that many had cancelled their bus tickets and were travelling by this train. They all wanted that this train should be made a regular train. The next afternoon around 3.30 p.m., train reached Duvvada, from where the jurisdiction of ECoR starts.
“As SWR took up the mantle of the demands from Vizag, ECoR stopped this train several times and gave clearance to other trains, while our train was made to wait at the outer signal. Finally, our train reached PF no. 5 at 5 p.m. The disgusting acts of ECoR did not end there. They changed the ‘tatkal train’ to ‘Suvidha Special’ with dynamic fare in the return direction. While I paid Rs.650 (sleeper class) from Yesvantapur to Vizag, I found it was Rs.2,000 (sleeper class) in the return journey.”
“I feel that ECoR is playing all sorts of games to get this train cancelled on the plea that this train has no patronage. A new railway zone in AP with headquarters in Visakhapatnam is the only solution to end the injustice from ECoR,” says Venky.
The Railways do not seem to have learnt a lesson even after getting a spate of complaints on Twitter on the unclean coaches and other problems on trains originating/terminating in Visakhapatnam.
Barely a couple of weeks after passengers tweeted on untidy coaches in popular trains like Godavari and LTT express trains, a passenger who travelled by the S1 coach of Godavari express to Hyderabad on October 28, says there is no improvement in the situation.
“The wash basins, both in toilets and outside, were overflowing with water, barely a few hours after the train started from Vizag. One can imagine the plight of those who wish to wash their face or brush their teeth in the early hours,” says R.V. Koteswara Rao of Visakhapatnam.
“To add to our woes, there was no power in the toilets and there was no one to attend to the problems. Beggars were getting into the reserved coaches and travelling short distances and there was no one to check their entry,” he adds.

North coastal andhra people very clear about the asking zone for VSKP. Even Srikakulam MP raised this issue of zonal HQ at vskp many times in parliament. Dont judge it by just new paper reports.
Who told if vizag gets train to delhi like Raj will not be useful for north andhra ?? It will stop at VZM, PVP if goes via Katni. Stops at SLO, RJY, EE, BZA if goes via WL. How come one train will help only originating station ??
Still many VSKP originating train have GNWL upto BZA.
...
more...
Most of the COA trains wont GNWL to BZA but vskp originating trains have. Even some machilipatnam train not having GNWL to bza.
If new zone comes PSA can be created as a Originating station with Pit lines which is not happening under ECoR.
Also Railway zone is not only for new trains, there are huge issues related to employs and region sentiments. I think North andhra region people can understand better what i am saying.
If south andhra people constantly ignore the issues of north andhra and hatred towards vizag develops it will create much bigger issues to AP state than SCR split.

I have never thought of it as a silly demand. I too was very keen about development of railway facilities in the VSKP, VZM, CHE and the rest of AP that is struggling under ECoR. Your arguments were very concise and informative and I shall try to convey the same idea to others in future. Thank you for that.
I was born and brought up in Kakinada and Vizag and have always closely followed railway developments in both areas. But only difference was that I always tried to argue in favor of a situation where Vizag region gets it's share of facilities while the rest of Andhra stays intact with SCR, under which it has

done well. (To be honest, I favor the old 9 zone system and usually put up idealistic arguments about people learning to work together instead of just separating when there are problems. Don't pay attention to that rambling. :) )
However, don't misjudge me for saying this. Speaking only from a railway perspective, unlike the VSKP region, which has a strong reason to demand a separation from it's home zone, the rest of AP has no such extreme problems with SCR and has no reason to demand for a separate zone. So you cannot expect people from here to just start supporting a move to separate from SCR without getting a clear picture as to why such a move has become necessary or what difference it can bring to the concerned regions. At the outset, the new zone doesn't mean as much to the rest of AP as it means to the northern part. Only with a proper communication of the needs and necessities can we get a unanimous support for the idea. And random people demanding diversion of trains from CCT to VSKP here on IRI did not help the situation as far as my reactions here on IRI are concerned.
So, please understand that neither I nor any one else from AP are against VSKP region getting better railway infrastructure. But solely as an RF, I hope you can understand why RF's from the SCR region may not accept the idea of a new zone wholeheartedly as much as they would accept the idea of merging WAT with SCR.

See my friend, Again i am saying dont see it as VSKP region issues alone. If that the case the VSKP region from where highest taxes are getting collected by state, spending more on Capital region at Guntur by state govt, what if people of vskp region people fights for not using our taxes some where ?? As a state we need to take care about issues of all region. If not another separate state movement will come.
I dont know how many scr RF will be there , but railway issues of Vizag region is all about 1 crs people. Its became one of the biggest issue of this region my years.

again if vizag is part of AP railway it helps atleast 6-7 coastal not alone north coastal AP. Many trains to south can be started as it has more pit lines and also space for expansion. Diversion of CCT trains to VSKP not possible as CCT is terminal but extension of VSKP trains to CCT is possible.

They do use it. I didn't ask for many trains to be run. But just one daily to KCG. Like a standard overnight train for that section, instead of a mix-up of bi-weeklies. Train on wednesday is missing currently.

Hardly anyone in Rayalseema bothered for a new zone. Because they know better than to protest. The state split because coastal Andhra, Krishna, Godavari districts cornered all resources. Many in Rayalseema wanted 3 way split (after split was finalized), because they knew capital, revenue and other developments will all be cornered by those districts.

One can compare Uttarandhra and Rayalseema as being short changed by all attention and development of coastal districts.

Naresh, a government employee living in Anakapalle, and Achari, a teacher living in Vizianagaram, who commute to the city daily for work, find the lack of local trains a curse for commuters.
“Though there are trains from Anakapalle to Visakhapatnam, they do not match the actual demand. I have to board either 57271 BZA- Rayagada Passenger or 57255 Kakinada - Vizag EMU, which are already packed to capacity with hardly any space to get in,” says Naresh.
Mr. Achari travels from Vizianagaram to Visakhapatnam every day. He boards 78531 Vizianagaram-Visakhapatnam DEMU, which is

packed to capacity with hardly any space to stand comfortably leave alone sitting in the train.
Both Naresh and Achari feel that there should be MEMU s (Mainline Electrical Multiple Unit) between Tuni/Anakapalle to Vizianagaram via Visakhapatnam after every 1 hour and a few services can be extended up to Annavaram one side (as it would meet the requirement of pilgrims travelling to Sri Satyanarayana Swamy temple) and Srikakulam on other side (as it would be useful to those going to Arasavalli and Srikurmam temples).
The introduction of the local trains would help in reducing the load on the National Highway and minimising road accidents. This is not all, the middle class and the poor will be saved the hassle of paying three or four times the fare for travel in buses.

The ‘insensitive’ attitude of the Railways towards the problems of common people is coming in the way of providing better amenities to them, feels Minister for Human Resource Development Ganta Srinivasa Rao.
At a meeting convened by Anakapalle MP Muttamsetti Srinivasa Rao here on Wednesday to discuss railway issues pertaining to Visakhapatnam region, the Minister expressed displeasure at the style of functioning of the railway authorities.
The refusal of the railway authorities to allow construction equipment into the DRM’s Office compound, a few years ago, delayed the completion of the Asilametta flyover in

the city by four years, he recalled. “I had to force the then DRM to listen by getting civic officials cut water supply to railway colonies,” he recalled. While the State and Central government organisations had their own responsibilities and limitations there should be greater coordination and mutual cooperation, he said.
MP Muttamsetti Srinivasa Rao wanted development of satellite stations like Anakapalle, Duvvada, Simhachalam and Pendurthy and starting of a few trains from there to ease the congestion at Visakhapatnam railway station.
The implementation of a water supply project was held up for over a year as the divisional office had not cleared it, Anakapalle MLA Peela Govind said.
