Booking tickets for the local Pune-Lonavala and Pune- Daund trains has become a tad bit easier, with an Android application heading to the city straight from Mumbai. The passengers can now reserve their seats from the unreserved ticketing system (UTS) app, instead of heading for booking counters which are often marred by long queues.
“The idea behind introducing this app is the reliving commuters from queues. They will simply have to download UTS developed by Centre for Railway Information System (CRIS). Upon signing up, they will have to visit the ticket window to recharge the electronic wallet with Rs 100 in order to use it,” said senior divisional commercial manager Krishnath Patil of Pune railway division.
The

tickets booked on the app can be printed from the Automatic Ticket Vending Machines (ATVM) that are placed at various stations under the Pune division. “When commuters visit the application to book a ticket, they can choose either a paperless or a paper ticket,” added Patil.
More than 10 lakh passengers travel on six trains that ply on the Pune-Lonavala route and the two that run on the Pune-Daund route. The ones who commute daily have welcomed the move with open arms.
Kiran Jadhav, who frequents the Chinchwad-Shivajinagar route, said, “There have been times when we are out of money. If the mobile app is really happening, we can book tickets locally. It will save us the time and effort that goes into booking the journey every day.”
Another commuter Shashank Khire, who take the Pune-Daund trains, said, “We have to take the unreserved ticket for the one-hour travel. Sometimes, we do not even buy tickets in order to catch the train on time. It ends up in us paying fines. The app will help us in such scenarios where we can book tickets on the app upon catching the train first.”

I have a question on Paperless Tickets. How dose CR will prevent a case like -- if I travel from Pune to Dadar (some long distance) without ticket and then buy a short distance paperless ticket using app from say Sion to Dadar to get out of station? I do not have any such plan neither I travel much, but was just curious.

Pune: The much awaited Pune-Daund local train will be finally moving on electrification system after successful trial was carried out on this route last Tuesday. Distance between Pune and Daund is nearly 72km.
During the test trial, engineers found out some technical issues in the flow of electricity. However, the issue was resolved by Tuesday and the train successfully ran on the track. This local train movement between Pune and Daund will be highly beneficial for people residing in Daund, Patas, Kedgaon, Yawat, Urli Devachi, Mundhwa, Hadapsar and Pune. Later, the route of the train will be extended up to Daund-Pune-Lonavala. Railway officers claim that introduction of the train will resolve road traffic and encourage people to take the railway route.

Pimpri Chinchwad: With the overhead electrification work nearing completion on the Pune-Daund railway line, suburban train commuters travelling to and fro between Daund and Lonavla can now look forward to travel directly between the two destinations without having to get down in Pune to change trains.
Rail Vikas Nigam Limited, which is carrying out the work, has said that the overhead traction wires will be energized (25,000 volts, 50 Hz, AC) from June 30. However, EMU (electric multiple unit) rakes will start running on the Pune-Daund stretch after inspection by the railway safety commissioner is completed. This will take at least four to six months.

officials said that the Nigam has been assigned the electrification work on the 600-km Pune-Daund-Solapur-Wadi-Guntakal section. While the 400km Pune-Wadi line is being done by RVNL (Central Railways) Pune, the Wadi-Guntakal (200km) section is being done by RVNL (South Central Railway).

Good step although delayed.
Not much relief will be there to the suburban travellers unless the Pune-Lonavala third line is completed.
Good news and a ray of hope is that the rate of commissioning of capacity augmentation projects in IR have currently picked up to 8 kms per day and efforts are on to increase it to 10 kms/day.

Officials said the electrification work is being carried out in sections where there are two rail tracks. The work on Pune-Daund-Bhigwan (102km) section was started in June 2008. As work on doubling of rail lines between Bhigwan and Mohol (near So lapur) is on, electrification work on this section is expected to start soon.
In a notification RVNL has said that the overhead traction cable will be treated as live at all times and that no unauthorized person shall work in the vicinity of the cables.
Rail commuters are elated as the electrification work is almost complete.

मनुष्यबळ कमी असल्याचा परिणाम; मोठय़ा प्रमाणावर फुकटे प्रवासी रेल्वेच्या पुणे विभागात प्रवाशांची वाढत चाललेली संख्या व अपुरे मनुष्यबळ यामुळे उपनगरीय रेल्वे गाडय़ांमध्ये प्रवाशांकडे नियमित तिकीट तपासणी होत नसल्याने फुकटय़ा प्रवाशांकडून रेल्वेला चांगलाच फटका बसत आहे. मनुष्यबळ कमी असल्याने एखाद्या दिवशी अचानकपणे तिकीट तपासणी करण्याच्या मोहिमेवरच रेल्वेला अवलंबून राहावे लागत असून, या मोहिमेत मोठय़ा प्रमाणावर फुकटे प्रवासी सापडत असल्याने रोजच अनेक जण तिकिटे न काढताच प्रवास करीत असल्याचे स्पष्ट होत आहे. रेल्वेच्या पुणे विभागामध्ये पुणे-लोणावळा, पुणे-दौंड, बारामती आदी महत्त्वाच्या मार्गाचा समावेश आहे. पुणे-लोणावळा उपनगरीय लोकल सेवेचा लाभ दररोज ८० ते ९० हजार प्रवासी घेतात. त्याचप्रमाणे पुणे-दौंड सेवेलाही मोठी मागणी आहे. या मार्गावरील प्रवाशांची संख्या दिवसेंदिवस वाढत आहे. पुणे स्थानकाचा विचार केल्यास सध्या या स्थानकावरून लांब पल्ल्याच्या सुमारे पावणेदोनशेच्या आसपास गाडय़ा ये-जा करतात. पुणे स्थानकातील व एकूणच विभागातील प्रवाशांची संख्या वाढत असतानाच बरोबरीने विनातिकीट किंवा योग्य तिकीट न घेता प्रवास करणाऱ्या प्रवाशांची संख्याही वाढली आहे. फुकटय़ा प्रवाशांना आळा घालण्यासाठी नियमित तपासणीऐवजी एक-दोन दिवस...

तपासणीची मोहीम राबविण्यात येते. या मोहिमेमध्ये पुणे विभागात दरववर्षी दोन लाखांच्या आसपास फुकटे प्रवासी सापडतात. विशेष म्हणजे प्रत्येक वर्षी फुकटय़ांचा आकडा वाढतच चालला आहे. याबरोबरच कारवाईत न सापडलेले प्रवासीही मोठय़ा प्रमाणावर असण्याची शक्यता असल्याने या सर्व प्रकारातून रेल्वेला मोठा फटका बसतो आहे. पुणे-लोणावळा या एका मार्गाचा विचार केल्यास या मार्गावर धावणाऱ्या लोकलमध्ये पूर्वी सातत्याने तिकीट तपासनिसांकडून तपासणी केली जात होती. सध्या या सेवेतील प्रवाशांची संख्या वाढली आहे. पण, महिन्यातून एकदाही लोकल गाडय़ांमध्ये तपासणी केली जात नाही. त्याचप्रमाणे फलाटावरही प्रवाशांच्या तिकिटांची दैनंदिन तपासणी केली जात नाही. लांब पल्ल्यांच्या गाडय़ांसाठी तिकीट तपासनीस वापरले जातात. त्यामुळे उपनगरीय सेवेकडे दुर्लक्ष होते. त्यातून फुकटे वाढत चालल्याचे दिसते. मात्र, अचानक होणारी तपासणी व फुकटय़ांच्या विरोधात विशेष मोहिमा राबवून अशा प्रवाशांना आळा घालण्याचे प्रयत्न सुरू आहेत. मात्र ही उपाययोजना करूनही फुकटे प्रवासी वाढत असल्याचे कारवाईच्या आकडेवारीवरून स्पष्ट होत आहे. पॅसेंजर मध्येच थांबवून तिकिटांची तपासणी मनुष्यबळाअभावी नियमित तिकीट तपासणी होत नसल्याने फुकटय़ा प्रवाशांना पकडण्यासाठी वेगवेगळ्या उपाययोजना करण्यात येत आहेत. १६ जूनला दौंड-पुणे पॅसेंजर गाडीबाबत तिकीट तपासणीचा वेगळा प्रयत्न करण्यात आला. उरुळी येथील रेल्वे फाटकाजवळ मध्येच ही गाडी थांबवून प्रवाशांच्या तिकिटांची तपासणी करण्यात आली. या तपासणीमध्ये १०१ विनातिकीट प्रवासी सापडले. त्यांच्याकडून २८ हजार ७९० रुपयांच्या दंडाची वसुली करण्यात आली. १८ तिकीट निरीक्षक व रेल्वे सुरक्षा दलाच्या कर्मचाऱ्यांनी त्यात सहभाग घेतला. अशा प्रकारची मोहीम यापुढेही सुरू ठेवण्यात येणार असल्याचे रेल्वेकडून सांगण्यात आले.

About 300 people were booked every day in the last one year at Pune and other prominent railway stations of the division for travelling in trains without valid journey tickets.
The 1.5 lakh cases were up by almost 25% as compared to last year (2014-15) when authorities booked over 84,000 people for ticketless travel. The Rs 5.78 crore fine collected was 24% higher than last year's fine amount of Rs 4.67 crore.
Most cases of ticketless travel were registered in suburban stations between Pune-Lonavla and Pune-Daund. A large number comprised college students.

A senior official said, “Our ticket checking staff conducted continuous drives. Teams identified sectors and prominent stations having large instances of ticketless travel. The drives were intensified during holidays and rush hours. The squads conducted checks when trains were on the run too. On an average, over 8,700 people were booked every month and about 300 people every day for ticketless travel in trains,“ the official said.
The authorities also booked over 1.02 lakh passengers for irregular travel.These included wrong tickets and in wrong compartments. Authorities booked 7,020 cases wherein passengers were carrying luggage without proper tickets.
Officials in the administration said they would continue the drive not to impose a fine, but to ensure that a passenger is travelling on a valid journey ticket. Officials said they have brought down the waiting time at ticket windows at all prominent stations.

हालचाली सुरू, समन्वयाची गरज; हडपसर रेल्वे स्थानकासाठी 23 कोटींची तरतूद
पुणे - लोणावळा-पुणे-दौंड या मार्गावर पुढील वर्षी लोकल धावू लागेल, या दृष्टीने हालचाली सुरू झाल्या असून, त्यामुळे शहरातील वाहतुकीचा ताण कमी होणार आहे. मात्र त्यासाठी रेल्वे मंत्रालय, राज्य सरकार आणि महापालिका यांच्यामध्ये समन्वयाची गरज निर्माण झाली आहे. हडपसर येथे रेल्वे स्थानकाच्या कामासाठी या वर्षी रेल्वे मंत्र्यांनी 23 कोटी रुपयांची तरतूद केली असली, तरी अनेक विकासकामांबरोबरच लोकल सेवेच्या तांत्रिक चाचण्याही पूर्ण कराव्या लागणार आहेत.
पुणे व पिंपरी-चिंचवडमध्ये पीएमपी ही बससेवा सार्वजनिक वाहतूक व्यवस्थेचा महत्त्वाचा भाग आहे. पुणे ते लोणावळा या लोकल सेवेमुळे

पिंपरी-चिंचवड शहरातील वाहतूक व्यवस्थेला आधार असला, तरी पुण्यातील प्रवाशांना त्याचा थेट फायदा मिळू शकत नाही. दौंड-पुणे-लोणावळा अशी लोकल सेवा सुरू करावी, पुणे ते लोणावळा लोकल सेवेकरिता वेगळे स्थानक निर्माण करावे, त्यासाठी मालधक्का, शिवाजीनगर रेल्वे स्थानकाच्या जागेचा विचार करावा अशी अनेक मते मांडली गेली. मात्र त्यावर केवळ विचारच झाला. हडपसर येथील स्थानकाचा विकास करून तेथूनही लोकल सेवा सुरू करता येईल, यावरही चर्चा झाली आहे. पुणे रेल्वे स्थानकावरून दिवसाला 22 रेल्वे गाड्या सोडल्या जातात आणि 23 गाड्या येतात. त्याचवेळी पुण्यातून पुढे मार्गस्थ होणाऱ्या रेल्वेंची संख्या 38 आहे, तसेच लोकलच्या 44 फेऱ्या दिवसभरात होत असतात. यामुळे पुणे रेल्वे स्थानकावर रेल्वे वाहतुकीची कोंडी होत असते. त्यातून मार्ग काढण्यासाठी लोकल सेवेकरिता दुसऱ्या जागेचा विचार केला जातो; पण कृतीच होत नाही.
इंजिन बदलण्याचा त्रास कमी
पुणे ते दौंड या मार्गाच्या विद्युतीकरणाचे काम पूर्ण झाले आहे. आता पुढील टप्प्यात चाचण्या होतील; मग या मार्गावरील डिझेल इंजिनऐवजी विजेवर धावणाऱ्या इंजिनचा वापर सुरू होईल. विद्युतीकरणाचे काम पूर्ण झाल्याने पुणे स्टेशन येथे रेल्वेचे इंजिन बदलण्याची गरज राहणार नाही. त्यामुळे पुढील काळात इंजिन बदलाचे काम हे दौंड येथे करावे लागेल. या मार्गावर सध्या पुणे ते गुलबर्गा या अंतरावर डिझेल इंजिनचा वापर करावा लागत आहे. संपूर्ण मार्गाचे विद्युतीकरण पूर्ण होण्यास दोन वर्षांचा कालावधी लागू शकतो. तूर्तास पुणे रेल्वे स्थानकावर इंजिन बदलण्याचा त्रास कमी होणार, हे मात्र निश्‍चित. इंजिन बदलण्यासाठी गाडी स्थानकावर उभी करून ठेवावी लागते, याकरिता लागणाऱ्या वेळेत बचत होईल. त्यामुळे स्थानक आणि जवळील रेल्वे मार्गावरील रेल्वे वाहतुकीची कोंडी कमी होईल.
हडपसर रेल्वे स्थानकाचा विकास कधी?
पुणे रेल्वे स्थानकावरील लोकल सेवा पर्यायी ठिकाणी सुरू करण्यासाठी हडपसर रेल्वे स्थानक हा चांगला पर्याय ठरू शकतो. या स्थानकाच्या विकासकामाकरिता रेल्वे मंत्रालयाने 23 कोटी रुपयांची तरतूद या वर्षीच्या अंदाजपत्रकात केली आहे. या ठिकाणी असलेल्या एका फलाटाच्या दुरुस्तीचे आणि उंची, लांबी वाढविण्याचे काम यातून केले जाईल. त्याचप्रमाणे रेल्वे स्थानकाच्या इमारतीची बांधणी केली जाईल. रेल्वे स्थानकाच्या विकासाकरिता आणखी 40 एकर जागा मिळविण्याचा प्रयत्न रेल्वे प्रशासनाचा सुरू आहे. त्यासाठी सुमारे 400 कोटी रुपयांचा निधी आवश्‍यक आहे. पुढील विकास कामांकरिता 350 कोटी रुपयांची तरतूद लागेल, असा प्राथमिक अंदाज आहे. या रेल्वे स्थानकाकडे जाणाऱ्या रस्त्याची रुंदी वाढविणे आवश्‍यक आहे. हडपसरकडून मुंढव्याकडे जाण्यासाठी बांधण्यात आलेला उड्डाण पूल ओलांडल्यानंतर लगेचच डाव्या हाताला वळून अरुंद रस्त्याने हडपसर रेल्वे स्थानकाकडे जावे लागते. कोरेगाव पार्क येथून हडपसर रेल्वे स्थानकाकडे येणारा रस्ता सुरवातीला रुंद असून, पुढे रेल्वे स्थानकाजवळ अरुंद झाला आहे. रेल्वेच्या जागेच्या हद्दीबाहेरील विकासकामे करण्याची जबाबदारी महापालिकेला पार पाडावी लागतील. रेल्वे प्रशासनाला पार्किंग, आरक्षण केंद्र आदी सुविधा उभारण्याची जबाबदारी पेलावी लागेल. सध्या येथे तीन फलाट अन्‌ पाच मार्ग आहेत. बारामती, दौंड, मनमाड, निजामाबाद, सोलापूरकडे जाणाऱ्या पॅसेंजर गाड्या येथे थांबतात.

Other than redevelopment of Shivajinagar Railway Station, Prabhu also announced that electrification of the Daund-Lonavala line would be completed by June 2016.
The long-delayed redevelopment work at Shivajinagar Railway Station might see some traction as Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu announced that tenders for the same would be floated soon. Prabhu was speaking at a public function post the inauguration of a new Foot Over Bridge (FOB) at Pune station on Saturday.
“The state government has recently cleared impending road blocks and the work would start soon,” Prabhu said. The redevelopment work would

be taken up the Indian Railway Station Development Corporation Limited (IRSDCL).
The IRSDCL website says that the state government had recently stated that railway land is not governed by the Maharashtra Regional and Town Planning (MR&TP) Act, 1966. While the masterplan for redevelopment of Shivajinagar Railway Station was drawn up in 2013, work for the same is yet to start due to various legal and logistic problems.
Other than redevelopment of Shivajinagar Railway Station, Prabhu also announced that electrification of the Daund-Lonavala line would be completed by June 2016. “We plan to line EMUs on the line to provide better connectivity to commuters,” he said, adding that the third Pune-Lonavala track would also be speeded up.
Prabhu said that there are provisions for the Pune-Nashik railway line in the recently-announced railway budget, and work on it would commence soon. He also said that a Pune-Jodhpur weekly train would be announced later this year.
Speaking about the need of investments in the Railways, the minister said that the present government is focusing on revamping both the internal and external functioning of the department.
As part of the revamp, major works for increasing railway network is being undertaken. In terms of services, Prabhu announced that automatic laundry services for washing linen would be taken up across the country. “We are also working on allowing mobile-based booking and cancellation,” he said.
The railways had already announced the formation of joint venture companies with various state governments including Maharashtra. Under this, the Railways would take up various projects under public-private partnership. The new FOB at Pune station has been constructed at a cost of Rs 1.90 crore, and Prabhu said that escalators would be fitted later.
