NEW DELHI: Ravindra Gaikwad, the Shiv Sena MP who decided that not being able to fly business class merited a lengthy assault on an airline employee, says he's the wronged party. The former school teacher wants Air India to be investigated for ill-treating him. This after he told reporters that he used his sandal to hit a 60-year-old Air India manager 25 times. The Shiv Sena this evening justified not taking any action against him, despite a large shower of his abuse being filmed. Air India has filed two police cases against him and all airlines have banned him.
Here are the 10 latest developments in this story:
"I
...
more...
dare the Delhi police to arrest me...I will not apologise, he (Air India manager) must come to me and apologise," Mr Gaikwad told reporters today, claiming that "a 60-year-old man must know how to behave" and suggesting that his party will stand by him.
A group of airlines banned the politician "with immediate effect." Air India and then Indigo cancelled his return ticket to Pune today from Delhi, after which he took a train to Mumbai
The MP refused to disembark from the plane for nearly 45 minutes after he landed last morning in Delhi from Pune.
An Air India manager- Sukumar Raman - boarded the plane to persuade the MP to exit the plane. He was then hit repeatedly. In his letter of complaint, the manager wrote of being humiliated publicly, his buttons being ripped off his shirt, and his glasses being broken during the sustained abuse.
The politician says that despite booking an Air India business class ticket, he was made to fly economy. Air India says it had informed his office that the flight the MP had chosen operates entirely with economy seats- there is no business class.
Mr Gaikwad has asked Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan and Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju to investigate Air India.
Both officials said MPs cannot break the law and that they are looking into the case.
The airline has filed two police cases against the MP for physical assault and for delaying a flight - the jet could not take off for its next destination because the politician refused to exit. 150 passengers were kept waiting.
Air India and other airlines today have stressed the need to collate a "no-fly list" featuring Mr Gaikwad and others who they will not entertain. They want the government's help in enforcing the ban.
In response to the MP being banned by Air India and other airlines, Sanjay Raut of the Shiv Sena said "Air India should worry about being blacklisted by the public."

Can Railway actually do that. Most possibly he must have taken a 1A seat in 12952 or 12954. Besides so weird how Delhi Police pounces on AAP MLA in such a hurry but failed to arrest this guy despite 2 FIR against him by Air India. Normal person hota to ab tak COurt Judicial custody mein hota.

In a first-of-its-kind initiative, the Indian Railways is planning to install automatic food vending machines (AVMs) at all suburban stations in Mumbai. Rail commuters can now buy packed food inserting currency notes, coins and even, debit or credit cards.
Western and Central Railways are already working on buying these AVMs for B-D grade stations. The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) will be procuring such machines for A1 and A grade stations in the city. Sources said that the cost of each AVM could be upto Rs 5 lakh. "We will call for tenders soon," a railway official confirmed.
Currently,

Train traffic was hit after Jaipur-Bandra Superfast Express ran over five buffaloes near Narangi Phata in Virar on Tuesday around 1pm.
In the incident, the cattle guard of the engine got damaged and had to be replaced. Traffic got stuck as the train was awaiting clearance.
Traffic was diverted to a single track. Normally when cattle hit the cattle guard, the animals usually get thrown away, but since buffaloes are heavy, they got entangled and the guard got damaged. It took time to remove the carcasses strewn all over the tracks after the

mishap.
Mukul Jain,DRM,Western Railway, said, “We will file a case against the unknown owners of the buffaloes with the RPF,Virar for endangering rail safety as per policy.”
When asked about the barricading the entire Mumbai-Ahmedabad section to avoid such cases,Jain said it is not possible as such barricading can be done only for trains that run at a speed of more than 160 kmph and such barricading is done only on Delhi-Agra route. “On WR the maximum speed of trains such as Rajdhani,August Kranti Rajdhani, Shatabdi and other super fast trains run at around maximum 110 to 130 kmph,” said WR officials. The Jaipur superfast train is delayed by nearly two hours due to the mishap.

New platform arrangements for Mumbai Central, Bandra Terminus, LTT in revamp.
Two-tier platforms will come up at three city terminuses — Mumbai Central, Bandra, and Kurla LTT — serving as separate arrival and departure zones just like at the airports.
The terminuses are among 400 stations for long-haul trains across the country that Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said would be redeveloped when he presented the Union budget on February 1. The tenders for the stations are expected to be issued soon and the railway ministry wants the construction to be completed in three

years’ time after the contracts are awarded.
Thane and Borivali terminuses are also on the list of the selected stations, but officials are yet to decide whether they will have two-tier platforms.
.
Creating different areas for boarding and disembarking will completely change the way travellers move around at crowded and chaotic train terminals. It will enable rail authorities to bring about much-needed order and also improve passenger safety.
“Mumbai Central, Bandra Terminus, and Kurla LTT will have a completely new design and train arrangement,” a senior officer with Indian Railways said.
“If a long-distance train arrives on the ground floor, the boarding will take place either from the first floor or the basement level. Whether a station has an underground platform or one the first floor will depend on the space it has for new construction.”
The revamped stations will have digital signage, escalators, elevators, self-help ticketing counters, executive lounges, luggage screening machines, and wi-fi. “They will also have a food plaza, a commercial complex, clinics and other facilities, which will be monetised by the developer to generate revenue,” an official with Western Railway (WR) said.
Rail minister Suresh Prabhu on Wednesday announced the first phase of the ‘Station Redevelopment Programme’, which includes Mumbai’s major terminuses. The financial model has been devised in a way that the government won’t have to incur major expenditure. Appointed private developers will reconstruct the stations and maintain them for 15 years.
In return, they will be given 45-year leasing rights for the commercial properties that come up at the stations. These could be shops, malls, and hotels.
.
The tenders for the terminuses were expected to be issued this week, but the model code of conduct for the upcoming elections forced officials to delay the process. “The station revamp was part of the budget announcement. The due process will start soon,” said WR’s chief public relations officer, Ravinder Bhakar.
The station projects will awarded to private developers under the socalled Swiss challenge method, which involves inviting a proposal online and allowing rival bidders to beat that proposal.

Tejas Express, one of the most awaited promises of Railway Budget 2016, is all set to start plying on the Surat to Mumbai route in the next financial year. Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, on a recent visit to Surat, announced that Tejas Express will start running between the two cities soon. Tejas Express, which is currently being manufactured, has been envisioned as a luxury train service. The train will run at a maximum speed of 130kmph, and will boast of multiple features aimed at enhancing passenger comfort during short journeys.
The Railway timetable that was released late in 2016 included 3 Tejas Express; New Delhi-Chandigarh Tejas Express, Mumbai-Karmali Tejas Express and Anand Vihar–Lucknow Tejas Express. Now, with the new Surat-Mumbai Tejas Express,
...

a fourth route has been added.But, how much will Tejas Express reduce travel time between Surat and Mumbai? According to Ravinder Bhakar, the CPRO of Western Railways, the travel time would approximately be the same as Rajdhani Express. “Currently Rajdhani Express takes around 2 hours and 55 minutes between the two cities at around 130 kmph. We are trying to reduce that. Tejas Express should take around 2 hours and 45 minutes, so that would come to around the same as Rajdhani,” he told FE Online.Suresh Prabhu has described Tejas Express as the “future of train travel in India”. The new luxury, semi-high speed train, will offer onboard services such as entertainment, local cuisine, WiFi, etc. Equipped with 22 new features, the chair cars will also come with LCD entertainment screens with headphone sockets. According to a PTI report, Indian Railways is working on an agreement with renowned chef Sanjeev Kapoor to decide on the food menu that Tejas Express will offer. Luxurious chairs with recliners and leg rest, reading lights, more mobile and laptop charging points, attendant call button, toilet occupancy indicators, smoke detectors, modular bio-toilets, and automatic door closing metro-like mechanism are some of the features that will make Tejas Express stand out.Indian Railways has already indicated that the fares of Tejas Express will be higher than that of Shatadbi, keeping in mind the additional features that are being offered for passenger comfort. Tejas Express is being manufactured at the Integral Coach Factory in Chennai and is expected to be ready by the end of this financial year.
Last year’s Railway Budget announced 5 new types of train services and coaches; Deen Dayalu coaches, Antyodaya Express, Humsafar Express, Tejas Express and UDAY Express, and overnight double-decker train. While Deen Dayalu coaches for unreserved passengers and Humsafar ‘luxury’ sleeper train have already started plying, Antyodaya will be launched shortly. UDAY is still on the drawing board and Indian Railways hopes to complete the project in the next financial year.

SURAT: There is some good news for Surat-Mumbai commuters. Come March, a high-end train, Tejas, will be launched between Surat and Mumbai.
Railway minister Suresh Prabhu announced the launch of Tejas between Surat and Mumbai during his visit in the city on Sunday for the foundation stone-laying ceremonies of four projects in north Gujarat and central Gujarat and launch of Disha mobile application.
"I have come to Surat for the first time and can't go without offering a gift to Surtis. Indian Railways will run high-end Tejas train between Surat and

Mumbai. Operating at speeds above 130 kmph, it will offer on-board services such as entertainment, local cuisine, Wi-Fi, etc. through a single service provider to ensure accountability and improved customer satisfaction," Prabhu said at Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SGCCI) here.
"Commuters travelling in Tejas from Surat will reach Mumbai in less than two-and-a-half-hours. The coaches of Tejas will have television screens at the back of the chairs," Prabhu added.
"Gujarat has been the most neglected state when it comes to budgetary allocation of the Indian Railways. From 2009-2014, Gujarat received only Rs 588 crore for capital expenditure. In our regime, the allocation in 2015-16 was increased to Rs 2,467 crore, which was 319 per cent higher than previous eight years. This time around, the expenditure in Gujarat has been pegged at Rs 13,025 crore," said Prabhu.

Surat: There is some good news for Surat-Mumbai commuters. Come March, a high-end train, Tejas, will be launched between Surat and Mumbai.
Railway minister Suresh Prabhu announced the launch of Tejas between Surat and Mumbai during his visit in the city on Sunday for the foundation stone-laying ceremonies of four projects in north Gujarat and central Gujarat and launch of Disha mobile application.
"I have come to Surat for the first time and can't go without offering a gift to Surtis. Indian Railways will run high-end Tejas train between Surat and Mumbai. Operating

at speeds above 130 kmph, it will offer on-board services such as entertainment, local cuisine, Wi-Fi, etc. through a single service provider to ensure accountability and improved customer satisfaction," Prabhu said at Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SGCCI) here.

"Commuters travelling in Tejas from Surat will reach Mumbai in less than two-and-a-half-hours. The coaches of Tejas will have television screens at the back of the chairs," Prabhu added.
"Gujarat has been the most neglected state when it comes to budgetary allocation of the Indian Railways. From 2009-2014, Gujarat received only Rs 588 crore for capital expenditure. In our regime, the allocation in 2015-16 was increased to Rs 2,467 crore, which was 319 per cent higher than previous eight years. This time around, the expenditure in Gujarat has been pegged at Rs 13,025 crore," said Prabhu.

ఆమెకు, రైలుకు మధ్య దూరం తక్కువగా ఉండటంతో రైలు ఆగుతుందో లేదోనని ఆందోళన చెందాడు. రైలు దగ్గరగా రావడంతో ఆలస్యంగా గమనించిన ఆ మహిళ ప్లాట్‌ ఫామ్‌ ఎక్కేందుకు ప్రయత్నించింది. ప్లాట్‌ ఫామ్‌ ఎత్తు ఎక్కువగా ఉండటంతో సాధ్యంకాలేదు. రైలు కిందపడి ఆమె మరణించడం ఖాయమని అక్కడున్నవారు భావించారు. ఇంతలో అద్భుతం జరిగింది. ఆమెకు కొన్ని అంగుళాల దూరంలో రైలు ఆగిపోవడంతో అందరూ ఊపిరి పీల్చుకున్నారు.
