GUWAHATI, June 14 - After having made some major strides in bringing down its energy bill by the use of alternative and renewable energy, the Indian Railways has now taken steps to strengthen the solid waste management system and is implementing a number of measures under the Swachh Bharat programme in this part of the country.
A Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) official told The Assam Tribune that while house-to house-collection of solid wastes and composting of bio-degradable waste started at Maligaon Railway Colony back in 2015, the contractor employed failed to perform as per standards and so the contract was terminated in March this year.

tender is being framed as per the provision of the Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016,” said the official. The capacity of the composting unit used is two tonne per day.
Officials said that adoption of the Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016, has wide implications in the Railways as most of the big colonies and stations will now fall within the purview of the Rules.
“In the Railway areas, the organisation must manage the waste generated within the Railway premises. The problem is that besides presence of a large number of unauthorised occupants within the Railway premises, there is also the issue of disposal of garbage by outsiders within the Railway premises. Then there is the question of charging user fee as mandated by the Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016, from Railway employees, markets, unauthorised markets, unauthorised occupants,” sources said.
They added that efforts are being made to reduce generation of waste, involve the society, and promote reuse of plastic bags to ensure overall reduction of plastic.
Officials said that as part of the implementation of the Rules, each waste generator in the Railway premises must segregate waste into three components – dry, wet and domestic hazardous – and all households, hospitals, workshops, sheds, and others have to comply with this.
“ The Medical department will ensure door-to-door collection of segregated waste in three separate containers. There will be no garbage disposal contract in future, but integrated work covering all the gamut of the Rule. After house-to-house collection of segregated garbage, the dry refuse will be recycled or sold to authorised waste picker or the authorised recyclers, while the wet refuse would be used for composting, vermiculture, or any other suitable means,” officials said.
NFR officials added that various initiatives are also being implemented as part of the Swachh Bharat mission. “Clean Train Station (CTS) scheme has been implemented in Guwahati, New Jalpaiguri and Katihar stations where coaches are cleaned through mechanised means during halts,” said NFR Chief Public Relations Officer Pranav Jyoti Sharma.
He said that On Board Housekeeping Services (OBHS) for maintaining cleanliness of coaches on board has been provided in 50 pairs of trains.
“More trains will be provided with this facility shortly. Coach Mitra, an app-based system of receiving complaints from passengers on cleanliness, watering, amenity, linen, petty repair and electrical problems and for their prompt disposal is in operation in 50 pairs of trains,” he said.
Sharma added that mechanised laundry for providing clean linen to passengers has already been commissioned in Kamakhya and New Jalpaiguri coaching Depots.
“Another mechanised laundry at Dibrugarh is expected to be functional shortly,” said the NFR CPRO.

रेलवे स्टेशन पर अस्त-व्यस्त माहौल और ट्रेनों के लेट होने के बार बोरियत भारत में आम बात है. लेकिन अगर ऐसा हो कि आपको स्टेशन पर मॉल, मल्टीप्लेक्स में मूवी देखने को मिल जाये तो कैसा रहेगा. साथ ही शानदार सोफे पर wifi के जरिये ट्विटर, फेसबुक चलाने का आनंद भी मिल जाये तो बात ही कुछ और होगी.
जी हाँ, ये सब मुमकिन हो सकता है और रेलवे इसके लिए इंतजाम कर रहा है. लेकिन इसके लिए रेलवे को अब निजी कंपनियों को रेलवे का ठेका देना होगा.

भारतीय रेलवे अब छवि सुधारने के लिए रेलवे स्टेशनों की नीलामी करने जा रहा है.
इस नीलामी के लिए सभी स्टेशनों की एक बेसिक कीमत निर्धारित की गई है.
कानपुर सेंट्रल की कीमत 200 करोड़ रखी गई है.
जबकि इलाहाबाद जंक्शन की कीमत 150 करोड़ रूपये रखी गई है.
ये नीलामी ऑनलाइन प्रक्रिया के तहत संपन्न होगी.

रेलवे सिर्फ सुरक्षा, टिकट बेचने और ट्रेन के परिचालन की जिम्मेदारी संभालेगा.
इसके अतिरिक्त निजी कंपनी गार्ड भी उपलब्ध कराएगी.
शोपिंग मॉल, मल्टीप्लेक्स आदि इन सभी स्टेशन पर बनाये जाएँगे.
किसी भी प्रकार की पारंपरिक विरासत से छेड़छाड़ नहीं की जाएगी.

New Delhi: The Indian Railways is firming up plans to join hands with Malaysia to redevelop about 20 stations in Tier-II cities across the country.
Aimed at attracting nearly Rs1 lakh crore private investment, the station redevelopment project envisages infrastructure revamp at platforms and circulating areas. It also entails commercial exploitation of station areas for constructing hotels, eateries, multiplexes, shopping malls and office complex among others for the use of developers for a period of 45 years.
For facilitating growth of Tier II cities, the centre, state and local governments provide a lot

of support to transform these not so big cities into business havens and making them India’s fastest growing cities. While cities like Delhi and Mumbai are in Tier-I category, cities such as Faridabad, Cuttack, Amritsar, Jamshedpur, Kochi, Jammu, and Bikaner are considered Tier-II cities.
A long term partnership will be forged with Malaysia on a government-to-government basis for offering about 20 stations to the southeast country, said a senior railway ministry official. Railways have already launched the ambitious project offering about 400 stations to be redeveloped in PPP model envisaging investment of about Rs1 lakh crore.
In the first phase, 23 railway stations, including the iconic Howrah station, Mumbai Central and Chennai Central have been selected for the project which aims to make the best use of the assets of the stations. A meeting was recently held with Malaysian officials where they showed keen interest in the station redevelopment project. While Malaysia is participating in the bidding process for 23 stations, the railways are mulling to offer about 20 stations separately involving about Rs10,000 crore investment on a government-to-government partnership basis, the official added.
The long term partnership scheme in station redevelopment project with Malaysia will be launched after getting Cabinet approval. Other stations being modernised in the first phase include Pune, Thane, Visakhapatnam, Kamakhya, Jammu Tawi, Udaipur City, Secunderabad, Vijaywada, Ranchi, Kozhikode, Yesvantpur, Bangalore Cantt, Bhopal, Bandra Terminus, Borivali and Indore.
Bhopal station has already been awarded to a developer for redevelopment. Railway minister Suresh Prabhu will inaugurate the start of the work at an estimated cost of Rs450 crore involving construction of hotel, hospital, parking lot, office and restaurant at the station premises. The developer will hold the rights for commercial exploitation of the land for a period of 45 years, while ownership of the land would remain with the railways.
