5. All special trains will be named as Yatra Express Special, said the sources. On being asked about running of trains from other places like Midnapore, Raipur, Rourkela and Jagdalpur, ECoR chief public relations officer JP Mishra said, "We are open to all proposals. In case there is a demand for special trains from these places, the same can be examined and run, if found feasible." He said they will keep some extra coaches with engine ready to be worked out at short notice. "In case we find crowds at any station, we will run special trains," he added. The ECoR will also open five additional enquiry counters, 35 additional ticket counters, 'May I Help You' booths and additional ticket checking staff at Puri railway station to tackle the heavy rush of passengers. Pilgrim complex constructed during Nabakalebara festival in 2015 will help the devotees to take rest at the station. It will accommodate around 5,000 pilgrims, railway sources said.

A vigilance team of Eastern Railway has busted a fake job racket and arrested five persons including a railway employee from the old Koilaghata building of the Eastern railways. The team was investigating into the fake job racket that had been operating from the city. The racket had duped many job-seekers with false promises of jobs in different departments under state and Central government.
One of the main accused, who is also a railway employee, asked some job-seekers to come at Koilaghata on Wednesday saying that they would be given appointment letters in the railways. The accused was distributing fake appointment letters among the job-seekers at the Old Koilaghata building. This attracted the attention of some of the employees as the

accused had been loitering there aimlessly.
Senior railway officials came to know about the incident. The senior vigilance officials raided the place and arrested the accused. The fake appointment letters were seized from the accused. The vigilance officials arrested four other persons who were loitering at various places inside the building too.
The investigating officers came to know that the accused are residents of Burdwan. The accused, who was an employee, has been identified as Amal Matia. The vigilance officers said that around 10 fake railway appointment letters were recovered from his possession.
It may be mentioned that a fake job racket was busted after the Crime Intelligence Branch (CIB) and Railway Protection Force (RPF) laid a trap at Sealdah station in February this year. Three persons were arrested. In the course of investigation, CIB officials came to know that the gang collected around 80 lakh from youth belonging to several states including Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand and Maharashtra. The gang used to operate a website where the fake lists were uploaded. The racket used to get money from many youth from various parts of Bengal too.
After interrogating the three accused, the investigating officers got some important information regarding the method of operation and also came to know about some other persons involved in the crime.

वेटिंग लिस्ट से परेशान यात्रियों को सुविधा देने के लिए रेल प्रशासन कई एक्सप्रेस गाड़ियों में एक्स्ट्रा कोच लगाने की तैयारी कर रहा है. इन एक्स्ट्रा कोचों के सिस्टम पर आते ही गाड़ी के प्रस्थान समय से काफी पहले ही प्रतीक्षा सूची कम होगी और रिजर्वेशन कंफर्म हो जाएगा.
पूर्वोत्तर रेलवे जनसंपर्क अधिकारी सी.पी. चौहान ने बताया कि 12581 मंडुवाडीह-नई दिल्ली एक्सप्रेस में 19 नवंबर को मंडुवाडीह से स्लीपर क्लास का एक कोच लगाया गया. उन्होंने बताया कि कई और ट्रेनों में आने वाले दिनों में स्लीपरों की संख्या बढ़ाई जाएगी.

भागलपुर के साथ साथ सम्पूर्ण अंग क्षेत्र के लोगों केलिए खुशखबरी है।
नवनिर्मित भागलपुर-मंदारहिल-रामपुरहाट रेल लाइन होकर भागलपुर से हावड़ा के लिए दो ट्रेनें मिल सकती हैं।
जोनल मुख्यालय ने बाकायदा इसके लिए रेलवे बोर्ड को प्रस्ताव भी दे दिया है, जिसकी स्वीकृति मिल गई है। सोमवार को भागलपुर दौरे पर आ रहे पूर्व रेलवे के जीएम घनश्याम सिंह इसकी फिजिबिलिटी का जायजा भी लेंगे।

दो ट्रेनें भागलपुर से हावड़ा के लिए प्रस्तावित हैं, वह भाया हसडीहा, दुमका और रामपुरहाट होकर हावड़ा तक जाएगी।
दोनों एक्सप्रेस ट्रेनें होंगी।
इनमें से एक ट्रेन नई होगी जबकि एक ट्रेन हावड़ा-सुरी एक्सप्रेस (13053-13054) है जिसे भागलपुर तक विस्तारित करने का प्रस्ताव है।
जोनल मुख्यालय से इस प्रस्ताव को स्वीकृति मिलने के बाद मालदा रेल मंडल ने बाकायदा भागलपुर के रेल अधिकारियों को अधिकारिक रूप से इसकी सूचना भी दी है।
पढ़े : जरूर पढ़ें
बताया जा रहा है कि सोमवार को जीएम भागलपुर यार्ड में जोनल और डिविजनल अधिकारियों के साथ ट्रेन मेंटेनेंस के संसाधनों का जायजा लेकर तमाम विंदुओं पर विचार करेंगे। मसलन ट्रेन चलने पर प्राइमरी और सेकेंड्री मेंटेनेंस कहां कराया जा सकता है। कितने यात्री लाभान्वित होंगे और कितनी बोगियों की ट्रेन चलाई जा सकती है। तमाम विंदुओं पर चर्चा होने के बाद ट्रेन चलाने की तिथि निर्धारित की जाएगी।
ये क्षेत्र होंगे लाभान्वित
भागलपुर,
मंदारहिल/बांका,
हसडीहा,
दुमका,
रामपुरहाट
इलाके के लोग
ये होंगे प्रमुख फायदे
नए रेलखंड से चलने वाली नई ट्रेन कम समय में पहुंचेगी भागलपुर से हावड़ा
भागलपुर से हावड़ा की दूरी 470 किमी की जगह 440 किमी हो जाएगी
भागलपुर से रामपुरहाट की दूरी 207 की जगह 175 किमी रह जाएगी
स्टॉपेज कम होने के कारण कम समय में तय होगी दूरी
दुमका-हसडीहा-मंदारहिल रेलखंड के यात्रियों को एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन की सुविधा मिलेगी
दुमका, रामपुरहाट, हसडीहा, मंदारहिल आदि जगह के व्यवसायी दो बड़े बाजार से जुड़ जाएंगे
दूरी कम होने के कारण किराया भी काम होगा
तीन तीर्थस्थलों की राह होगी आसान
इस नए रेलखंड चलने वाली इन एक्सप्रेस ट्रेनों से चार महत्वपूर्ण तीर्थस्थल पर जाने वाले लोग भी लाभान्वित होंगे। भागलपुर-रामपुरहाट रेलखंड से जुड़े तीन प्रमुख तीर्थस्थल हैं।
तारपीठ,
बौंसी में मंदार तीर्थ /जैन मंदिर
और
दुमका के पास बासुकीनाथ
जैसे महत्वपूर्ण तीर्थस्थल हैं।
