कड़ी मशक्कत के बाद रेलवे ने घाटी में रेल सेवा को पूरी तरह से बहाल कर दिया है। पांच महीने के बाद घाटी में सभी 28 ट्रेनों ने आवाजाही की है।
इसमें यात्रियों ने बनिहाल से लेकर बारामुला तक सफर किया। रविवार को मुख्यमंत्री बच्चों की ट्रेन का भी उद्घाटन करने जा रही हैं। रेलवे अधिकारियों का कहना है कि अब पूरा प्रयास किया जाएगा कि रेल सेवा पर किसी तरह का कोई असर न पड़े।
आठ जुलाई को आतंकी की मौत के बाद घाटी में रेल सेवा बंद हुई थी। इसके

बाद 135 दिनों तक रेल सेवा पूरी तरह से बंद रही। नवंबर में रेल सेवा को शुरू किया गया, लेकिन रेलवे सभी ट्रेनों को नहीं चला पाया। वहीं उपद्रवियों ने दिसंबर के आरंभ में फिर रेल सेवा को निशाना बनाने का प्रयास किया। चलती ट्रेनों पर पथराव किया गया। इसके साथ ही ट्रैक को भी उखाड़ने का प्रयास हुआ, लेकिन सुरक्षा बलों ने उपद्रवियों के मंसूबों में कामयाब नहीं होने दिया।

राष्ट्रीय महत्व की महत्वपूर्ण योजनाओं में शुमार कश्मीर तक रेल संपर्क अभी तक अधूरा ही है। इसके लिए बनी उधमपुर-श्रीनगर-बारामुला रेल लिंक ( यूएसबीआरएल) परियोजना की लागत 1500 करोड़ रुपये से बढ़ कर 20 हजार करोड़ रुपये तक पहुंच चुकी है।
आजादी के बाद रेलवे की सबसे चुनौतीपूर्ण योजना में शुमार यूएसबीआरएल प्रोजेक्ट अब तक लटका हुआ है। इसके तहत कटड़ा-काजीगुंड खंड को अभी पूरा किया जाना है। इस सेक्शन में काजीगुंड से बनिहाल तक तो प्रोजेक्ट पूरा कर लिया गया है, लेकिन, कटड़ा-बनिहाल तक 110 किलोमीटर की पट्टी अभी तक अधूरी है।

2007 में ही पूरा करने का लक्ष्य रखा गया था। संशोधित तिथि दिसंबर 2017 रखी गई थी जो अब बढ़कर 2020 हो गई है। इस पूरे प्रोजेक्ट को लेकर संसदीय लोक लेखा समिति ने कड़ी आपत्ति भी दर्ज की है।
समिति का कहना है कि रेल मंत्रालय का तर्क है कि सुरंगों के गिरने, पुलों के डिजाइनों में परिवर्तन से लेकर पानी का रिसाव होने की वजह से परियोजना में देरी हुई। रेलवे ने प्रोजेक्ट की सुस्त रफ्तार के लिए समिति को कई तर्क दिए हैं। इनमें प्रतिकूल मौसम, असाधारण बारिश, हिमपात, बाढ़, निर्माण सामग्री के परिवहन में बार-बार अवरोध आदि शामिल हैं।
समिति ने कहा है कि यह मंत्रालय की कमी को दर्शाता है। रेलवे को प्रतिष्ठित परामर्श दाता कंपनियों की सेवा पहले ही ले लेनी चाहिए थी। लोक लेखा समिति ने इस पूरे प्रोजेक्ट में यह भी नोट किया है कि उधमपुर-कटड़ा जिसे मार्च 2003 में पूरा होना था वह 4 जुलाई 2014 में पूरा हुआ।
लोकलेखा समिति ने रेलवे से कहा है कि आगे से निर्माण कार्य आरंभ होने से काफी पहले अध्ययन किया जाए। विस्तृत भूवैज्ञानिक और भू-तकनीकी अध्ययन पर जोर दिया जाए। डीपीआर चरण में ही अनुभवी परामर्शदाताओं, विदेशी परामर्शदाताओं व संस्थानों की सहायता सुनिश्चित कर ली जाए।

ANANTNAG: Promising to safeguard the honour and dignity of people of the state, Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti, today said it is time for the good things happening in the country to find their way into the state of Jammu & Kashmir.
She said she has set many goals and is extremely confident of achieving them with the able support of the Centre and the people of J&K. “I am sure the alliance government in the state will work towards healing the wounds of the people who have suffered enormous difficulties and hardships for more than two decades now,” she added.

Chief Minister was addressing a huge gathering, after jointly flagging off with the Union Minister for Railways, Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu (through video conferencing), four new DEMU (Diesel Engine Mobile Unit) passenger trains between Banihal-Baramulla and Baramulla-Budgam, here today.
It was her first public address in Anantnag after becoming the Chief Minister last month.
Deputy Chief Minister, Dr. Nirmal K. Singh, senior PDP leader and MP, Muzaffar Hussain Baig, Minister for PW(R&B) and Parliamentary Affairs, A. R. Veeri, Minister of State for Haj & Auqaf, Syed Farooq Ahmad Andrabi, several Legislators and former Deputy Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, Sartaj Madni were also present on the occasion.
Similarly at New Delhi, Minister of State in PMO, Dr. Jitendra Singh and Minister of State for Railways, Manoj Sinha, accompanied Suresh Prabhu at Rail Bhawan, for the ceremony.
Congratulating the people on the introduction of four new trains today, the Chief Minister said she hopes it is the beginning of many more good initiatives which will be taken by the Centre in the state. “As India makes giant strides on the development front, we hope J&K will get its fair share in the country’s rise,” she stated.
The Chief Minister said sound railway network contributes to the productive potential of the economy, including alleviating congestion in the road network and facilitating development. She said it was a cherished dream of her father, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, to provide people with a dedicated network of trains that crisscross the picturesque Kashmir valley and transcend cultural and religious barriers to connect them with the rest of the country.
Mehbooba Mufti said connectivity is the single biggest determinant of development and trains make commuting easier for those who live far away from their workplaces or colleges. “I am looking forward to the completion of 111-km-long Katra-Banihal Railway Line, which will provide an all-weather link to the Valley,” she added.
Describing as huge the spin off that the rail network will have on the state’s tourism sector, she said that she will take up with the Central government the introduction of a new train service –Valley on Wheels – on the pattern of Palace on Wheels, which has given a huge fillip to the tourism industry of Rajasthan. “Special tourist trains to valley from Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Kolkata will further increase tourist footfall to the state,” she said, while also pitching for Joy Trains for children and family outings.
In order to facilitate travelers visiting the state, Mehbooba Mufti urged the Union Railway Minister to open Passenger Reservation Centres at the health resorts of Gulmarg, Pahalgam, Patnitop and Sonamarg. She also demanded dedicated stalls for showcasing fabled Handicraft products under the Union Railway Ministry’s ‘Station Development Programme’.
Highlighting the advantages of railways in promotion of the state’s horticulture sector, Mehbooba Mufti said Kashmir’s wide range of fruits will find it much easier to reach terminal markets and mandis in the rest of the country. “We aim to popularize use of freight trains to better market our fruits so that they are able to reach new destinations in the country well in time,” she added.
Drawing the attention of the people towards the grave threat posed by terror across the globe, the Chief Minister praised India’s pluralism that has bestowed upon its people, including Muslims, respect and honour all over the globe. She, however, rued the prevailing gun culture propagated by a miniscule section, which has maligned the image of the great religion of Islam and wreaked havoc on Muslim nations, right from Iraq, Syria, Libya to Pakistan. “Such is the level of human tragedy that Syrian children are forced to eat paper to survive.” she said, while describing the youth of J&K as her first and prime responsibility.
Describing J&K as a perfect match to India’s multiculturalism, the Chief Minister said J&K occupies a special position in the country’s Constitution. She said she is determined to carry forward the development agenda which will help in changing the perception, which has taken a heavy toll on its economy by affecting its lucrative travel industry.
Referring to her recent meetings with the RBI Governor and several foreign delegations over the last few days, Mehbooba Mufti said she will open up new opportunities of employment for the hugely talented youth of the state. She also admired their exuberance and courage for having survived the persistent onslaught of violence.
“We will soon unveil several exchange and assistance programmes for importation of knowledge and expertise so that our youth get tangibly benefitted. The RBI Governor has also assured me of giving first preference to the youth of J&K in jobs in the state’s banking sector,” she said, urging Suresh Prabhu to also facilitate recruitment of skilled local youth in the railways.
After flagging off the trains, the Chief Minister boarded the newly-launched service and undertook the journey up to Baramulla. She also interacted with several schoolchildren who boarded the train at various stations.
The trains will run six-days-a-week between Budgam and Baramula & Banihal and Baramula. These will have eight coaches with the same speed that are already running on the track but with limited stops.
On her arrival at Srinagar, the Chief Minister also flagged off five SRTC buses that will take passengers from Nowgam Railway Station to Lal Chowk. Out of these, two buses will be reserved for women passengers. The service has been launched on her directions to provide respite to the daily commuters who suffer on account of poor to-and-fro bus service. Those who joined the Chief Minister at various stations during her journey included Ministers, Ghulam Nabi Lone (Hanjura), Syed Basharat Bukhari and Imran Raza Ansari, besides senior PDP leaders Rafi Mir and Pir Mansoor.

ministry has approved four projects: Kaithal-Shamli-Meerut, Nawalgarh-Jhajjar and Neemka Thana, Jakhal-Fatehabad Bahuna-Ratia, Meerut-Panipat, and Bhiwani-Loharu.
Pathankot-Joginder Nagar gauge conversion and new Joginder Nagar-Mandi lines were approved in Himachal Pradesh and one project for Jammu and Kashmir: Jammu to Poonch via Akhnoor and Rajouri.
Suresh Prabhu said that in Jammu and Kashmir, despite difficult terrain and uncertain geology, work on the Katra-Banihal section of Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla Rail Link Project is progressing satisfactorily and 35 km of tunnelling out of a total of 95 km has been completed successfully.
He said that the decongestion work on the Jalandhar- Jammu line, an important link to the valley, is going on in full swing. Doubling of two bridges will be commissioned by March, while the other two bridges will be completed by 2016-17.
“We intend taking up on priority the provision of passenger amenities and beautification of the Amritsar railway station,” the Minister said.

SRINAGAR – Hailing the launch of four new train services in the Valley, Chief Minister, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, on Thursday stated that the completion of Katra-Banihal Railway Line will be an engineering marvel which will provide a vital all-weather link to Kashmir with the rest of the country.
He said improved rail connectivity in the state will bring in huge relief to the people who are suffering on account of frequent breakdown of Jammu-Srinagar National Highway, especially in harsh winters. “Unseasonal rains this year have also taken a heavy toll on NH A-1 with some portions, in particular between Ramban and Banihal,” he stated.

Chief Minister was speaking during the flagging off ceremony of four new train services, here today. With this, the total number of train services in Kashmir Valley has risen to 26.
The Chief Minister said linking of Jammu with Kashmir region by train was a fulfilment of a dream that seemed improbable some years ago. He said the project was a matter of great pride for which the Indian Railways had to overcome huge challenges. “Rail connectivity will change the lives of the people by promoting trade and tourism sectors,” he said.
Describing railways as the most preferred mode of transport for poor and common masses, the Chief Minister urged the Union Railway Minister to give special attention to Kashmir Railway Project so that the people of Valley also take benefit of the cheapest mode of transport. “It is my dream to see Kashmir connected with other parts of the country through a well-laid out network of trains,” he stated and added that it will be a turning point in the history of the state once we are able to connect Kashmir with the rest of the country.
Referring to the positive impact the new train services will have on the state’s tourism sector, Mufti Sayeed said improved rail network will bring in cost effective and ease of travel which will boost tourist arrivals to the Valley. “For visitors, every train ride is a joy ride as the tracks traverse through the most beautiful parts of Kashmir valley,” he added.
As many as 30,000 people travel by trains every day on Banihal-Baramulla Railway Track.
The work on very difficult Katra-Banihal Track, spanning around 111 km, is in progress and is expected to be completed in the next four years. The entire length envisages construction of tunnels, flyovers and under-bridges, with one Arch Bridge over river Chenab between Kouri and Bakal, being the highest in the world.
Pointing towards the huge fillip the export-oriented horticulture industry will receive, Mufti Sayeed said the railway network will facilitate smooth movement of fruits to the terminal markets and mandis in other parts of the country. “The fruit growers, who along with the Handicraft industry resuscitated our economy during turbulent years, will get greater value of their produce and a level-playing field to market their crop because of railways,” he said.
Stating that a dedicated rail network will unlock vast opportunities of employment for our youth in various sectors, the Chief Minister urged the Union Railway Minister to consider employment for those whose land was acquired for laying of tracks. “I have been told that a few persons have been provided jobs in Indian Railways but many more whose land has been acquired should also be employed as they have lost their means of livelihood,” he stated.
Speaking on the occasion, the Union Railway Minister, described connectivity as the best indicator of development and railway as the best mode of connectivity. He assured that he will leave no stone unturned to see that Katra-Banhial Railway Line is completed within the stipulated timeframe. “Kashmir has unique things like cuisine and handicrafts to offer and railways will provide a perfect platform to market these,” he assured.
Minister of State for Railways, in his address, said the frequency of train services will be increased in the near future for which additional coaches are being pressed into service.
Union Minister for Railways, Suresh Prabhu, Deputy Chief Minister, Dr. Nirmal Singh, Union Minister of State for Railways, Manoj Sinha, Minister for Revenue, Javaid Mustafa Mir, Minister for Transport, A. G. Kohli, Minister of State for Revenue & Public Works, Sunil Kumar Sharma, MP. Shamsher Singh Manhas, Principal Secretary to Chief Minister, B. B. Vyas and Chairman, Railway Board, A. K. Mittal, besides several senior officers of the State Government and Indian Railways were present on the occasion.

Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu today said the Indian Railways will play its role in promoting tourism in Jammu and Kashmir even as state Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed demanded 'Palace on Wheels' to meet this purpose.
"We will do whatever we can do within our limits to promote tourism in Jammu and Kashmir," Prabhu said here.
He was speaking at a function held to flag off four new trains between Baramulla in north Kashmir to Banihal on the other side of Pir Panjal mountain range.

said IRCTC of the railways can work out an arrangement with the Jammu and Kashmir Tourism Development Corporation for promoting tourism in the state.
Addressing the gathering, the Chief Minister said, "We should have a Palace on Wheels like Rajasthan ... They have done well (in promoting tourism on train). We can have stops for the tourists at various places," he said.
The four new trains have been started with the aim of easing the heavy rush of passengers on the existing trains between Srinagar and Baramulla and Srinagar and Banihal.
On the delay in Katra-Banihal link of the prestigious 'Rail to Kashmir' project started during the tenure of then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Prabhu said the Indian Railways will expedite the work in order to connect the valley with rest of the country through trains at the earliest.
"Dilli say mila hi dengay lekin dil bhi milnay chahiyay (We will connect Kashmir to Delhi but we want the hearts to connect too)," he said.

Katra, once an insignificant hamlet at the foothill of the Shivalik Hill range was at best a tea-shop spot for passengers travelling from Jammu to Udhampur or Srinagar along the National Highway. But it has been blessed by the holy deity Mata Vaishno Devi, and is emerging as a sprawling township; amidst the hills but with connectivity to almost all capitals of Indian States. More than ten million pilgrims visit the holy cave each year. One can imagine the magnitude of humanity which the railways shall have to handle while carrying passengers to and fro the site of the holy cave. When the PM flagged off the first railway from Katra to Udhampur last week, he announced that six trains would run daily on Jammu- Katra line. But the Railway Minister has been more frugal by announcing that three more trains for Jammu would be introduced in addition to the six...

already announced. He also approved one additional DEMU train between Baramulla-Banihal taking total number of daily trains on only line in the Kashmir Valley to 3 (3 up and 3 down). Another significant announcement is of special pilgrim circuits including Devi Circuit to link pilgrim centres with all major State capitals and proposed launch of pilot project between New Delhi-Jammu Tawi sections for setting up Food Courts at major stations.
While Katra, the starting point for uphill pilgrimage is being connected with all major cities in the country through railways, the railway authorities are equally seized of the urgency of bringing to completion the Katra – Banihal sector of the railway connect with Kashmir valley. Railways Minister has made a commitment on the floor of the house that his ministry would see to it that this link is completed within time and that rail connectivity of Kashmir with the rest of India is established.
It is a matter of time. Once valley’s rail link becomes fully functional, it will have far reaching impact on the economy and life style of the people in the vast region of Pir Panchal range and the valley of Kashmir. Once that is done, the next stage for the Indian railways would be to carry rail connectivity to Leh, Lolab and Gurez in Kashmir region and to Poonch Rajouri and Shupian in Jammu region.
