న్యూఢిల్లీ: ఒకే గమ్యానికి వెళ్లే ఏ రైలులోనైనా సాధారణ టికెట్‌తో కూడా ప్రయాణించొచ్చని భారతీయ రైల్వే పేర్కొంది. 'వికల్ప్‌' పథకం ద్వారా పాసింజర్‌ లేదా ఎక్స్‌ప్రెస్‌ టికెట్లు రిజర్వేషన్‌ చేయించుకున్న ప్రయాణీకులు రైలు మిస్‌ అయితే తర్వాత అదే మార్గంలో అందుబాటులో ఉన్న ఏ రైలులోనైనా ప్రయాణించొచ్చని వెల్లడించింది. ఈ మేరకు మంగళవారం ఓ ప్రకటన విడుదల చేసింది.
రాజధాని, శతాబ్ది, దురంతో, సువిధ ,స్పెషల్‌ రైళ్లలో కూడా ఈ సదుపాయం అందుబాటులో ఉండనుంది. ఇలా సూపర్‌ఫాస్ట్‌ రైళ్లను వినియోగించుకున్నందుకు పాసింజర్ల నుంచి ఎలాంటి ఎక్స్‌ట్రా చార్జీలు వసూలు చేయబోమని చెప్పింది. వచ్చే నెల 1వ తేదీ నుంచి ప్రయాణీకులు ఆయా రైళ్లలో ఖాళీగా ఉన్న బెర్తులను వినియోగించుకోవచ్చని తెలిపింది.
రిజర్వేషన్‌ వెయిటింగ్‌ లిస్టులో ఉన్న పాసింజర్లు కూడా ఆ టికెట్లతో ఖాళీగా ఉన్న రైళ్లలో ప్రయాణించొచ్చని వివరించింది. ఈ

సదుపాయాన్ని వినియోగించుకునేందుకు టికెట్లు బుక్‌ చేసుకునే సమయంలో 'వికల్ప్‌' స్కీంను ఎంచుకోవాలని చెప్పింది. దీంతో టికెట్లు వెయిటింగ్‌ లిస్టులో ఉంటే అదే సమయానికి ఖాళీగా ఉండే రైలు వివరాలు సదరు వ్యక్తి మొబైల్‌కు ముందుగానే వస్తాయని తెలిపింది. కాగా, ఫ్లెక్సీ ఫేర్‌ సిస్టంను ప్రారంభించిన తర్వాత ప్రీమియర్‌ రైళ్లలో సీట్లు ఖాళీగా ఉంటున్నాయి. రైల్వే తాజా నిర్ణయంతో లక్షలాది ప్రయాణీకులు సౌకర్యంగా ప్రయాణించేందుకు వీలు కలుగుతుంది.

रेलवे के सबसे व्यस्त रेलमार्ग दिल्ली-हावड़ा पर बीते कई माह से हर पल खतरा मंडरा रहा है। ट्रैक की सही ढंग से देखरेख न होने से कई जगह स्लीपर ध्वस्त नजर आते हैं तो काफी संख्या में पटरी और स्लीपर को जोड़े रखने वाली पैनड्राल क्लिप गायब हैं। कई जगह तो पटरी भी बदलने योग्य है। इस मार्ग पर 24 घंटे में करीब 250 से 300 ट्रेनें आवागमन करती हैं, कई हादसे होने के बावजूद इस ओर कोई तवज्जो नहीं दी जा रही है। दिल्ली-हावड़ा रेलवे ट्रैक महत्वपूर्ण ट्रैक माना जाता है। एक ओर रेलवे प्रशासन इस पर बुलेट ट्रेन दौड़ाने की तैयारी कर रहा है, वहीं दूसरी ओर जसवंतनगर से इकदिल रेलवे स्टेशन के मध्य कई जगह स्लीपर टूटे हुए हैं, काफी संख्या में पैनड्राल गायब हैं। इसके बावजूद ट्रैक पर 130 किमी की स्पीड से सुपर फास्ट ट्रेनें दौड़ रही हैं। ट्रेन गुजरने पर ट्रैक हिचकोले लेता है। ट्रैक...

को नियमित देखने वाले रेलपथ शाखा के गैंगमैन और कीमैन इस हकीकत से अपने अधिकारियों को अवगत करा रहे हैं फिर भी कोई ध्यान नहीं दिया जा रहा है। आए दिन हो रहीं घटनाएं : रेलवे ट्रैक पर आए दिन कोई न कोई घटना घटित होती रहती है। चार दिन पूर्व इकदिल-भरथना के मध्य चकरैल खुल गई, संयोगवश कीमैन ने सजगता बरतते हुए लाल झंडी दिखाकर राजधानी एक्सप्रेस को रुकवा दिया। बीते शनिवार को इकदिल के समीप मालगाड़ी के इंजन से ट्रैक के ऊपर निकला स्लीपर का हिस्सा टकराने से इंजन खराब हो गया। अनाधिकृत क्रॉसिंग बनाई गईं : रेलवे ट्रैक पर कई जगह ग्रामीणों ने अनाधिकृत रेलवे क्रॉसिंग बना ली है। शहर में सुंदरपुर गांव के समीप ट्रैक्टर अनाधिकृत क्रॉसिंग पार करते देखे जा सकते हैं। यही हाल इटावा-सरायभूपत स्टेशन के मध्य गांव विचारपुरा के पास ग्रामीणों ने क्रॉसिंग बना ली है। ऐसे हालत कई जगह देखने को मिलते हैं। इससे रेलवे ट्रैक पर हर पल खतरा मंडराता नजर आता है। ट्रैक की निरंतर होती देखरेख : स्टेशन अधीक्षक आरके त्रिपाठी ने बताया कि ट्रैक की निरंतर देखरेख करने के लिए रेलपथ शाखा के इंजीनियर स्टाफ के साथ सक्रिय रहते हैं। अनाधिकृत क्रॉसिंग व अन्य मामलों के लिए आरपीएफ को सजग किया गया है।

DRM HWH Dr. R Badrinarayan promised to strengthen railway connectivity in it's home state of West Bengal. Only Howrah and it's suburban stations are well connected while others have no proper direct connectivity. There is no smooth connectivity between South Bengal stations like Kharagpur, Asansol, Purulia, Adra, Medinipur and Bankura with North Bengal ones like Malda Town, Jalpaiguri, Coach-Behar, Siliguri etc. A proposal has been sent to the board to look into the matter.
Special trains will be plying soon between these stations. Reviewing the demand, further actions will be taken.

KOLKATA: The most efficient division of South Eastern Railway has now got a new 'A' category certified tag on one of it's station.
Purulia Jn. under Adra division will be a 'A' category station. Purulia crossed the targeted criteria in the month of FEB, 2017. The station has seen every phase starting from NG, MG to BG since 1900. It is the only station in SER to pass through the 'B' category house so fast with consecutive RGs of 13.1%, 20%, 28.53 and 38.87%.
MP Dr. Mriganko said,"The city has tremendous potential

to grow specially in the departments of IT and hardware industries, situated at the center of industrial belt. It's developing rate will be increasing day by day. Purulia is among the first cities of West Bengal to start E-Rickshaws on pilot and commercial basis." He asked the authorities of division to start high priority premium trains from PRR as presently there is none such to prefer.
Reviewing to the resolution, DRM Adra said to take time for the upgrade. Passenger amenities work are at full pace in Bokaro like new platforms, escalators etc. After that work will start at PRR. Purulia's status as 'A' category will be upgraded in the database after all required work completes but more priority will be given from now.
DCM, Bhanskar said,"We have got a brother of Bokaro now. We will try our best to upgrade them to best."

the new catering policy, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said, “In this new Catering Policy food production and food distribution will be delinked. This will be a marriage between the best of both worlds. Food can be cooked anywhere like the state of the art kitchens of IRCTC in a hygienic manner using mechanized system. Food can be distributed using professionals from the hospitality industry. For making of food SHGs especially women SHGs can be used which will benefit them.”
Key Highlights of New Catering Policy 2017
Mobile Units and Base Kitchens:
● IRCTC shall manage catering service on all mobile units including catering services on all new trains/ trains started on short notice. Pantry car contracts awarded by zonal railways shall also be reassigned to IRCTC.
● Meals for all mobile units will be picked up from the nominated kitchens, owned operated and managed by IRCTC. IRCTC shall develop different archetypes of kitchens keeping in view supply of food and usage assessed.
-All four base kitchens under departmental operation of zonal railways (Nagpur, CSTM, BCT and Balharshah) and all kitchen units i.e. refreshment rooms at A1 and A category stations, jan ahaar, cell kitchens shall be handed over to IRCTC on ‘as is where is basis’. Besides IRCTC may set up its own kitchens at additional stations if required.
-Kitchen structures/ land/space will be handed over by zonal railways to IRCTC, for a period of 10 years extendable for another period of 5 years, on a token license fee of Re.1/- (Re. one) per sqft. p.a. subject to minimum of Rs.100/- p.a.
-IRCTC shall develop the business model for the kitchens so that they can expand and enhance the service.
-IRCTC shall prepare and submit a detailed concession agreement for setting up/development of the kitchens for approval of railway board.
-IRCTC shall not outrightly outsource or issue licenses for provision of catering services to private licensees.
-IRCTC shall determine the menu of standard meals and A-la-carte items. The standard meals served in trains shall be within the fixed tariff approved by Railway Board.
● IRCTC may involve/empanel self help groups for providing catering related services.
Static Units
● Zonal Railways will manage static units (catering/milk stalls, trolleys etc.) except base kitchens and kitchen units to be handed over to IRCTC. IRCTC shall be responsible for catering services in static unit viz., food plazas, food courts and fast food units.
● Allotment of all minor catering units at all category of stations to be done through open tender.
● For the first time, it has been envisaged that allotment of special minor units (reserved category) at all category stations will be done through open tendering system within the similar reserved category. The technical eligibility criteria has been simplified
● Allotment of milk stalls at all stations shall be done through open tender system as against calling application.
● For milk stalls, in addition to dairy cooperative federations/members of NCDFI bodies/agencies registered/certified by FSSAI for sale of milk and milk products have been made eligible to participate at all category of stations.
● Provision of perpetual renewal has been done away with. Now it has been envisaged that tenure of all static units (except kitchen units and Food Plaza) shall be 5 years only.
● For smooth implementation of renewal, ceiling limit on holding of minor units including milk stalls, computation of units has been defined.
● 33% sub quota for women in allotment of each category of minor catering units at all category of stations has been provided.
