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
...
more...
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.

Finally, the Endowments Department has initiated steps for the developmental activities in the historic Arasavalli temple by approving the master plan which was prepared a couple of years back.
The department, in association with the temple authorities, is expected to spend around Rs. 10 crore for the creation of facilities for the pilgrims.
The temple attracts almost three lakh people on the day of Ratha Saptami and around 20,000 devotees every Sunday to have darshan of Lord Suryanarayana Swamy.

gets an annual income of Rs. 4 crore and has more than Rs. 18 crore worth in fixed deposits. Though the finances of the temple looked bright, the Endowments Department failed to take up developmental activities all these years. The ills that plague the temple include congestion created by vendors or hawkers at the temple’s entrance and increased traffic movement through the temple’s vicinity into residential areas — both making it difficult for pilgrims visiting the temple, especially on Sundays. Utter chaos prevails on festival days such as on Ratha Saptami.
The district administration has proposed removing the shops on either side of the road leading up to the temple and widening the road up to 60 feet.
Recently, Endowments Department Principal Secretary J.S.V. Prasad visited Arasavalli temple and expressed dissatisfaction over the functioning of the temple. He asked officials to begin road widening, creation of parking area, shifting of shops to identified place as part of the implementation of the master plan.
The works are likely to begin by the end of this year, according to higher officials. Road widening from Arasavalli arch to the main premises will be taken up very shortly.
A massive building, which is located in front of the main temple, is expected to be demolished so that the Sun’s rays fall directly into the premises of temple.
The implementation of master plan helps to construct more toilets, cloak rooms and accommodation facility. Indra Pushkarani will also get a makeover and it can be seen directly from the temple. The temple has no ‘Mada Veedhi’ as houses and commercial establishments had been built around the Sun temple.
Chief Priest of the temple Ippili Shankara Sarma told The Hindu that the temple would get all the facilities on a par with major ones such as Simhachalam Temple near Vishakapatnam, the Kanaka Durga Temple at Vijayawada and the Annavaram Temple of East Godavari district.

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.

Yes connection to new capital and commercial capital VSKP in the route u mentioned is needed. I don't know why SWR is not allowing Kondaveedu to be made daily?

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.

Media keeps harping on VSKP issues because all their owners are from there.
