Navi Mumbai has grown and developed a lot and is presently expanding very fast, hence need termination of long distance trains.
But panvel terminus construction should have just started by now and completion may take a year or two.

AURANGABAD: The water train from Miraj on Tuesday made its last and 111th trip to Latur, one of the worst drought-hit districts in Marathwada.
The administration and the civic body officials in Miraj saw it off at an informal function organised closer to the facility where lakhs of liters of water was pumped regularly basis since April 12. Latur experienced good rainfall this monsoon, to the extent of reviving the city's water supply system that might last for about four months.
The administration, however, has decided not to abandon the multi-crore facility that

it had created in the farm of S R Deshmukh, a former president of the Latur municipal council, situated next to the (Latur) railway station, to receive water train from Miraj.
The administration and the civic body officials are also apprehensive about the storage of nearly 4 mmcub at the Nagjhari and Sai barrages, situated about 10-15km from Latur city following heavy rainfall that the city and its outskirts received a few days ago. The barrages are on the Manjra river.
"There is almost no water in the Manjra dam having storage capacity of 221 million cubic meter (MMCub) water. Currently, the dam accounts for 0.2 mmcub storage, that too in some isolated places,"said Vijay Cholkhane, water works engineer in the Latur civic body. "We hope the Manjra dam in Beed district, about 70km from Latur, gets ample storage to meet Latu's requirement on a permanent basis,"he said.
The administration and the civic body officials felicitated the railway officials engaged in the water supply work since April. District collector Padurang Pole urged people to make judicious use of water while the municipal commissioner Sudhakar Telang pointed out that the water available presently in Nagjhari and Sai barrages could last till December.
S R Deshmukh, former Latur municipal council president and a Congressman who had provided the huge well in his farm with a capacity to store about 20 lakh liter water, said "I have agreed with the administration not to remove the infrastructure created in and around the well for water supply to the city. In case of any emergency arising in future, the facility can be used."

मुंबई.मानसून आने के पहले तक सूखाग्रस्त मराठवाडा के सबसे ज्यादा सूखा प्रभावित लातूर में इन दिनों इंद्रदेव मेहरबान हैं और जमकर बरसात हो रही है। इस बीच रेलवे ने लातूर में पानी पहुंचाने के लिए 101 जलदूत ट्रेन वहां पर भेजी है। रेलवे अभी एक सप्ताह तक और ट्रेन से लातूर के लिए पानी भेजेगी।
click here
- मध्य रेलवे के सोलापुर मंडल के डीआरएम अजय कुमार दुबे ने ‘भास्कर’ को बताया कि राज्य सरकार ने मध्य रेलवे से 31 अगस्त तक वाॅटर ट्रेन चलाए जाने की मांग की है।

मध्य रेलवे ने राज्य सरकार की मांग को मान लिया है।
- दुबे ने कहा कि रेलवे सार्वजनिक परिवहन सेवा है, लेकिन लातूर में पानी की किल्लत को देखते हुए मानवता का परिचय देते हुए रेलवे ने वहां पानी पहुंचाने का काम भी अपने हाथों में लिया और उसे पूरा भी किया।
पानी पहुंचाने रेलवे ने नहीं लिया शुल्क
- सोलापुर मंडल के डीआरएम दुबे ने बताया कि हमारी कोशिश रही कि वाॅटर ट्रेन अपने निर्धारित समय पर अपनी मंजिल तक पहुंचे।
- इसके लिए मंडलस्तर से लेकर रेल मंत्रालय तक इसकी माॅनिटरिंग की गई। अभी तक रेलवे 2345 लाख लीटर पानी लातूर पहुंचा चुकी है।
- रेलवे ने इसके लिए कोई शुल्क नहीं लिया है, जबकि अब तक जितना पानी पहुंचाया गया है, उसका मलाभाड़ा 10 करोड़ 61 लाख रुपए होता है।
जलदूत ट्रेन का स्वागत करने कार्यक्रम का आयोजन
- मध्य रेलवे के प्रवक्ता एके सिंह ने ‘भास्कर’ को बताया कि लातूर के लिए पहली जलदूत ट्रेन 11 अप्रैल 2016 को रवाना की गई थी।
- बीते 30 जुलाई को 101 वी पानी वाली ट्रेन लातूर पहुंची थी। इस एक सौ एकवीं जलदूत ट्रेन का स्वागत करने के लिए वहां एक कार्यक्रम भी आयोजित किया गया।
- ऐसा पहली बार हुआ जब रेलवे ने पानी सप्लाई की जिम्मेदारी ली। लातूर में पानी पहुंचाने के लिए कोटा में टैंको की सफाई का कार्य युद्धस्तर पर किया गया।
- पहले पंढरपुर से लातूर पानी पहुंचाने की सोची गई थी लेकिन तकनीकी दिक्कतों के कारण ऐसा नहीं हो सका। इसके बाद मिरज से लातूर पानी भेजने का फैसला लिया गया।
- पहली जलदूत ट्रेन 50 वाॅटर टैंक के साथ मिरज से लातूर पहुंची थी।
लातूरवासियों को नलों से जलापूर्ति शुरू
- लातूर शहर के नागझरी स्थित जलाशय में पर्याप्त मात्रा में जलसंचय होते ही शहर वासियों को तुरंत नल द्वारा जलपूर्ती शुरू की गयी है।
- पिछले 8-9 महीने से लातूरवासी टैंकर द्वारा किए जा रहे पानी वितरण पर निर्भर थे।

The railways has pegged the cost of each trip of the Miraj-Latur water rake Jaldoot at Rs11 lakh, or about 45 paise per litre. As of Thursday, railway officials told dna that the water rake had made a total of 78 trips between the two stations and transported 17.7 crore litres to the parched Latur town. Of these 78 trips, the first nine were made with just 10 wagons and carried 5 lakh litres per trip, while the rest 69 were full 50-wagon rakes, each rake carrying 25 lakh litres.

The

cost of transport of water as of Thursday is around Rs 8.5 crore. Smaller issues, such as how to peg the cost of the truncated 10-wagon trips and the loss of water, if any, during loading and unloading, will also have to be looked into, agreed officials.
While officials refused to come on record about the bill issue, they said that by the time the plan ends once monsoon is stronger in Latur region, especially the Manjara dam area on the border of Osamanabad and Beed, the bills will go past Rs10 crore. Responding to a letter from Central Railway written on June 28, the railway board has extended the term of the special accounts mechanism for this water transport till July 31.
Under the special accounts mechanism allowed by the railway board's directorate of traffic commercial (rates), CR is allowed to load the water at Miraj station with the district magistrate (DM) of Sangli — under which Miraj falls — being designated consignor (sender) and DM of Latur as consignee (receiver). The only special case is that instead of railway rules for everybody, which state that the sender has to make the full payment before the journey itself, in this case, payment is done on a "to-pay" basis, which means payment of all the water transported can be done at a later date.
As per the agreement between the railways and the state government, it is the latter which will have to ask the railways to call off the water rake as and when supply from Manjara dam for Latur town gets adequate. The town requires about 5 crore litres per day under normal circumstances. The first water rake carrying five lakh litres had left Miraj for Latur on April 11. The first full 50-wagon rake carrying 25 lakh litres had left for Latur on April 19.
The number game
Total trips of water rake till Thursday: 78
Total water transported till now: 17.7 crore litres
Cost per trip: Rs11 lakh
Total cost as of now: Rs8.5 crore (approx)
Cost of water transport per litre: 45 paise

नवी दिल्ली, दि. १३ - दुष्काळग्रस्त लातूरला रेल्वेने पाणी पोहोचवण्यासाठी आकारण्यात आलेले बिल मागे घेणार असल्याचे रेल्वेमंत्री सुरेश प्रभू यांनी म्हटले आहे. मिरजेतून लातूरला पाणी पोहोचवण्यासाठी रेल्वेने चार कोटी रुपयांचे बिल आकारले होते. ४ मे पर्यंतचे २ कोटी ४ लाखांचे बिल तात्काळ अदा करावे, असे पत्र सोलापूर मध्य रेल्वेच्या व्यवस्थापकांनी लातूरच्या जिल्हाधिकाऱ्यांना पाठविले होते.

'जलपरी'च्या माध्यमातून आतापर्यंत रेल्वेने ६ कोटी २० लाख लिटर पाणी लातूरला पोहोचवले आहे. पाण्यासाठी बिल आकारण्याच्या रेल्वेच्या निर्णयावर चहूबाजूंनी टीका झाल्यानंतर रेल्वेमंत्र्यांनी आता बिल मागे घेणार असल्याचे जाहीर केले आहे.

लातूरात निर्माण झालेल्या पाणी टंचाईवर तातडीचा उपाय म्हणून १२ एप्रिलपासून दररोज मिरजेहून ५० रेल्वे वॅगनद्वारे २५ लाख लिटर पाणी पुरवले जात आहे. १२ मे पर्यंत ६ कोटी २० लाख लिटर पाणी आणण्यात आले आहे. यासाठी रेल्वेला दररोज १२.५० लाख रुपये खर्च येत आहे. मध्य रेल्वेच्या व्यवस्थापकांनी जिल्हाधिकाऱ्यांना पाठविलेल्या पत्रात या खर्चाचा उल्लेख आहे.

लातूरला रेल्वेने मोफत पाणी देण्याची घोषणा रेल्वेमंत्री प्रभुंनी केली होती. या घोषणेचे स्वागत करत स्थानिक भाजपा कार्यकर्त्यांनी पहिल्याच दिवशी जलपरीवर बॅनर लावून रेल्वेमंत्र्यांचे अभिनंदन केले होते. पश्चिम महाराष्ट्रातील मिरज येथे पाणी भरल्यानंतर ११ एप्रिलला पहिली पाणी एक्सप्रेस लातूरला रवाना झाली. १२ एप्रिलच्या मध्यरात्री ट्रेन लातूरमध्ये दाखल झाली.

मिरज ते लातूर एकूण अंतर ३४२ कि.मी.चे होते. लातूरला पाणी पोहोचवण्यासाठी खास राजस्थान कोटा येथून ट्रेन मागवण्यात आली होती. सुरुवातीला पाणी एक्सप्रेसला १० डब्बे जोडलेले होते. प्रत्येक डब्ब्यामध्ये ५० हजार लिटर पाणी साठवण्याची क्षमता होती. त्यामुळे पहिल्या काही फे-यांमध्ये प्रत्येकवेळी पाच लाख लिटर पाणी लातूरला पोहोचवण्यात आले.

लातूर शहराची लोकसंख्या चार लाखापेक्षा जास्त आहे. ग्रामीण भागातील ९४३ गावांमध्ये १८ लाख लोकसंख्या आहे. अपु-या पावसामुळे लातूरमध्ये जलाशय, धरणे, नद्या आणि विहीरी आटल्या आहेत.

कसे पाणी पोहोचवले जायचे
पाणी एक्सप्रेस जिथे थांबायची तिथून पाच ते सात कि.मी.च्या अंतरावरील एका मोठी विहीर जिल्हा प्रशासनाने ताब्यात घेतली होती. ट्रेनमधून पाणी विहीरीपर्यंत पोहोचवण्यासाठी पाईपलाईनची व्यवस्था करण्यात आली होती. विहीरीमध्ये जमा होणारे पाणी तहानलेल्या भागांपर्यंत पोहोचवण्यासाठी लातूर प्रशासनाने ७० टॅंकरची व्यवस्था केली होती. या सर्व टॅंकरची मिळून एकूण २२ हजार लिटर पाणी वाहून नेण्याची क्षमता होती.

The settlement of expenditure is not relevant at this point of time as the most important matter is to continue uninterruptedly with the transportation of water to the people in their hour of need, the statement added.
Prabhu has further ordered that the estimate of expenditure which was sent to the Latur district administration, on their request, will be withdrawn immediately.
"The issue of settlement of dues is being considered separately by the railway ministry," it said.
Taking note of severe drought condition in Maharashtra, Prabhu took initiative and ordered the railways to immediately make necessary arrangements for transportation of water in the drought affected areas of state.
Towards this end, Railway Board immediately arranged 100 tank wagons through its Kota Workshop and dispatched them to Maharashtra. Mumbai based Central Railway Zone geared up its machinery and directed its two divisions namely Solapur and Pune to make arrangements for water transportation.
For the first ten days when the local state administration at Miraj and Latur were to lay pipelines and to create suitable infrastructure, Pune Division of Central Railways on its own, started transporting water through a 10 tank wagon goods train using its limited resources and man power.
