After a passenger’s tweet to the Railway Minister, Western Railway has started a three-day drive to ensure local commuters don’t board the Rajdhani Express and August Kranti Express from Borivali.
On Thursday, a 40-year-old woman who travelled on the August Kranti Express from Delhi to Mumbai tweeted to Suresh Prabhu about people without valid tickets boarding the train at Borivali and travelling to Mumbai Central.
Nidhi Jamwal, a resident of Andheri was returning from Delhi on the August Kranti Express on Thursday. When the train stopped at Borivali station, Jamwal said that a

group of commuters boarded her compartment. "They seemed to be officegoers. When they did not get down at Andheri, I figured out that they wanted to get off at Mumbai Central and were using the August Kranti Express as a local train,” Jamwal said.
Jamwal spoke to the rail staff, who told her this was a common practice for Rajdhani trains. Jamwal called for the Ticket Checker, but he put her off. “I had to get down at Andheri, so I could not make a written complaint. But after getting home, I tweeted at Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu and the railway board. The Indian Railway cannot allow the Rajdhani trains to be used as local trains,” Jamwal said.
Jamwal said that the railway board informed her that her complaint would be taken seriously and forwarded to the concerned authorities via Twitter.
Mukul Jain, divisional railway manager, Western Railway, Mumbai Central Division said that Western Railway began the ticket checking drive on the Rajdhani trains after they got a message from the railway board on Thursday.
“The ticket checking staff has been instructed to take strict action against anyone found travelling in the Rajdhani trains without a ticket,” Jain said.
Shailesh Goel, former member of Indian Railway Users Consultative Council, said using Rajdhani trains as local trains was common practice. “Both the railway staff and officers are aware of this,” Goel said.

Travelling in ac coaches in exp/SF trains either with ordinary unreserved ticket or without ticket is rampant in many (may be almost all) the routes of the IR. But all these happen in connivance with IR Staff/TTE. It happens in Rajdhani class train and that too in Mumbai AK Rajdhani is a news to me!!
Corruption is flourishing day by day as common public has bowed before it. An alert citizen and of course with an honest RM at the top has resulted in the fact coming to limelight and possibility of any action against the culprits, else nothing happen.

incidence, the BBS Raj stoppage case, and reports that both being regular incidences and not isolated cases,
The fact that Maximum number (distinctly high) of vigilance complaints being received against IR officials than any other deptts or All banks together.
Common experience of public with TTEs, Parcel offices, all indicates that IR has become more of a departmental fiefdom rather than a national asset serving the Indians.
Hats off to Madam Nidhi Jamwal,who took pain of doing some effort for cleansing the system, rather than being a mute spectator like most of us!!

This is not fair, population is increasing at a high rate but the number of trains are still the same everyone needs to reach on time and everyone cannot be accommodated in the present number of local trains, by the way every BCT/BDTS/DDR bound train gets half empty at Borivali so even if local passengers are travelling whats the problem

No problem bro, passenger should buy proper ticket (ac Class)and go in ac class!
Rly rules say improper ticket is considered as without ticket. IR says if train is going empty, it does not mean a passenger boards it without buying proper ticket.
Here inefficiency of IR comes into picture who operate as lakeer ke fakeer and are wasting the national resources (i.e. tax payers/ public money)

relative, once have to go from Bhopal to NGP by Rajdhani express and he was ready to take any ticket and pay amount, but he was told there is no room. He himself saw at Bhopal stn one coach was almost full empty. The next stop from BPL was NGP, so no one was going to board the train between BPL & NGP. So IR loose revenue and the person does not get facility he deserve. What he ultimately did, I did not ask, but should have asked.

मुंबई : मध्य रेल्वे मेन लाइन आणि पश्चिम रेल्वेवर सर्व लोकल बारा डबा धावत असतानाच हार्बर रेल्वे मात्र यापासून वंचित राहिली होती. एप्रिल महिन्यात पहिली लोकल धावल्यानंतर हार्बरवर सर्व बारा डबा लोकल कधी होणार, असा प्रश्न उपस्थित होता. त्यानंतर नऊ डबावरून बारा डबा लोकल करण्याच्या कामांना वेग देण्यात आला आणि १0 आॅगस्टपासून सर्व लोकल बारा डबा धावू लागल्या. यामुळे हार्बरवरील प्रत्येक लोकलची प्रवासी क्षमता ३३ टक्क्यांनी वाढणार आहे.
हार्बरवर बारा डबा लोकल धावण्याची प्रतीक्षा प्रवाशांना होती. नऊ डबावरून बारा डबा लोकल चालविण्यासाठी हार्बरवरील प्लॅटफॉर्मचे लांबीकरण करण्यावर भर दिला जात होता आणि हे काम एप्रिल महिन्यात पूर्ण करण्यात आले. त्यानंतर डबे उपलब्ध होताच २९ एप्रिल २0१६ रोजी हार्बर मार्गावर पहिली बारा डबा लोकल धावली. हार्बर मार्गावर सध्या ३६ लोकलच्या ५८४ फेऱ्या होतात. या

मार्गावरील सर्व फेऱ्या आता बारा डबा असतील, अशी माहिती मध्य रेल्वेचे मुख्य जनसंपर्क अधिकारी नरेंद्र पाटील यांनी दिली. मध्य रेल्वेकडून हार्बरवरील सर्व लोकल बारा डबा जरी करण्यात आले असले तरी सीएसटी ते अंधेरी, बोरीवली मार्गावर धावणारी पश्चिम रेल्वेची एक नऊ डबा लोकल मात्र बारा डबा झालेली नाही. ही लोकल पश्चिम रेल्वेची असल्याने ती बारा डबा करण्याचे काम हे पश्चिम रेल्वेचे असल्याचे सांगण्यात आले. त्याच्या सहा फेऱ्या होत असून सीएसटी ते अंधेरी दरम्यान पाच आणि एक फेरी सीएसटी ते बोरीवली दरम्यान होते.
1मध्य रेल्वे मेन लाइन आणि पश्चिम रेल्वे मार्गावर सर्व लोकल बारा डबा धावत आहेत. त्यामुळे या मार्गावरून प्रवास करताना काही महिलांना बारा डबा लोकलची सवय होती. नऊ डबा लोकल हार्बरवर धावत असल्याने महिला प्रवाशांची धावपळ होत होती. मात्र आता बारा डबा लोकल सुरू झाल्याने ही धावपळ थांबेल. 2हार्बरवर बारा डबा लोकल चालविण्यासाठी मध्य रेल्वे प्रशासनाने १२ ते १४ फेब्रुवारी दरम्यान सीएसटी स्थानकाजवळ ७२ तासांचा ब्लॉकही घेतला. हे काम पूर्ण केल्यानंतर प्रशासनाकडून त्वरित हार्बरवर डीसी ते एसी परिवर्तनही करण्यात आले. हे परिवर्तन पूर्ण होताच बारा डबा लोकल चालविण्यात आली. 3मध्य रेल्वेने हार्बरवर मे महिन्याच्या पहिल्या आठवड्यात बारा डब्यांच्या २00 फेऱ्या, ३१ मेपर्यंत दहा लोकलचे बारा डब्यात आणि १५ जूनपर्यंत आणखी सहा लोकल बारा डब्यांमध्ये रूपांतरित करण्याचे टार्गेट ठेवले होते. त्यानंतर हेच टार्गेट तांत्रिक कारणास्तव आॅगस्ट महिन्यापर्यंत पुढे ढकलण्यात आले.

As many as 36 stations on both CR and WR lines will be spruced up with murals, artworks and fresh coat of painting in this initiative spread over seven days.
At least 10,000 people including school students and working professionals have so far enrolled themselves for the biggest station beautification initiative in the city. The initiative -- which is a joint effort of a Mumbai-based NGO, Making a Difference (MAD), and Mumbai First, a think tank - envisages beautification of 36 stations across both central and western suburban lines.
The initiative, which

has received sponsors for 25 stations so far, is slated for October 2-8.
"The project is an extension of our previous initiatives at Borivali, Matunga and Khar stations and would be organised on a huge scale. We have scheduled it during the 'Joy of Giving week' as this is the best thing that citizens can do for the most critical mode of public transport in the city: the railways" said Haresh Shah, founder, MAD.
In all, 15 stations on the Central line (from Masjid to Thane) and 21on the western line (between Churchgate and Borivali) have been chosen for the beauty treatment. The beautification would involve splashing the walls inside the stations with bright colours, murals around ticket windows, staircases and the foot-over bridges with a unique theme for each station.
The organisers are planning to work on the massive project through crowd-funding and crowd-sourcing but have also roped in several corporates to ensure that there are enough resources. "People are at the centre of the project. Every day, lakhs of people travel on the Mumbai suburban rail network and have to go through a lot of hardships at each point. We are working on a model where anyone who wants to even donate small amounts can contribute and those who can give some time can volunteer to paint or beautify one of the nearest stations," said Shishir Joshi, CEO, Mumbai First.
Each station would have a specific theme representing the cultural symbols, heritage places, places of interest and significance of that particular locality. A small station needs a funding of at least Rs 3 lakh for such an initiative; it is close to Rs 5 lakh for bigger stations. "We have come up with the cost estimate considering basic expense involved in painting the stations and basic labour costs involved in installing murals etc.," said Joshi.
The team is also expecting each of the sponsoring company to send a few of its employees as volunteers in the initiative. "We are expecting at least 50,000 people to join us as around 150 people would be required for each station. Schools, colleges and social organisations along with working professionals have shown interest so far," said Haresh Shah.
Ravinder Bhakar, Chief PRO of Western Railway, said, "It is extremely encouraging that so many people from the city have come together on the same platform and are seeing it as their responsibility to beautify stations. The railways are really proud of this initiative and we are hoping that this would help discourage bad practices like spitting and throwing litter."
The group has now organised a contest among city's design and architecture colleges for the rail station beautification project.
Manisha Rangnekar, a Worli-based architect who is coordinating the design aspect of the initiative, said the group is planning to rope in several artists, architects and designers for the project.
