मैं जिस ट्रेन से दिल्ली जाने वाला हूँ वह आज पटना से शाम 4 बजे खुलने वाली थी मगर कल शाम ही मैसेज आ गया कि वह पटना 11 की सुबह पहुंचेगी। वह ट्रेन अभी दिल्ली से कोलकाता के रास्ते में है और 24 घंटे से अधिक लेट हो चुकी है। और यह कहानी किसी एक ट्रेन की नहीं दिल्ली पटना रुट से गुजरने वाली 50 से अधिक रेलगाड़ियों की है। और यह बहुत सामान्य मामला है। असली खबर तो इस खबर में है।
गरीब रथ 62 घंटे लेट हो चुकी है और अभी रास्ते में है। साफ सफाई और सोशल मीडिया में सक्रियता के मामले में सुरेश प्रभु जितनी शो बाजी कर लें मगर ट्रेनों के परिचालन के मामले में फिसड्डी

साबित हुए हैं। सच यही है कि रेलवे का सिस्टम ठीक करना उनके जैसे व्यक्ति के बस की बात नहीं है। और वे जिस काम के लिये आये हैं, यानी रेलवे को बेचने लायक बनाने के लिये वह भी वे शायद ही कर पाएं। कोहरे के मौसम में उत्तर भारत में ट्रेनों का परिचालन ठीक करने के लिये अब किसी और प्रभु को अवतार लेना पड़ेगा।
प्रधानमंत्री नरेन्द्र मोदी ने कहा कि रेल मंत्रालय पहले "रेवड़ी की तरह" बंटता था। एक मंत्रालय कैसे रेवड़ी की तरह बंटता था वही जानें पर हम उनका अभिप्राय समझ रहे हैं। रेवड़ी की तरह प्राप्त रेल मंत्रालय चलाने वाले राम विलास पासवान अभी उनके मंत्रालय में हैं और पता नहीं उन्हें जो मंत्रालय दिया गया है वह उन्हें किस तरह और किस आधार पर दिया गया है पर जिस सुरेश प्रभु नामक चार्टर्ड अकाउंटैंट को नरेन्द्र मोदी ने रेल मंत्रालय दिया है उसके राज में रेल किराया किस तेजी से बढ़ा आप जानते हैं।
रेवड़ी की तरह रेल मंत्रालय पाने वाले एक और रेल मंत्री लालू यादव ने कई साल ट्रेन का किराया नहीं बढ़ाने का रिकार्ड बनाया था। पर अब बच्चों के आधे किराए से लेकर वरिष्ठ नागरिकों की छूट का क्या हाल है आप सब जानते ही हैं। अब जानिए कि ट्रेन लेट चलने में (आनंद विहार – भागलपुर गरीब रथ एक्सप्रेस 22406 करीब 62 घंटे की देरी से चल रही है) रिकार्ड बना रही है। पर मोदी जी इन सबसे ऊपर, "ना खाउंगा, ना खाने दूंगा" का एलान करने वाली ईमानदार सरकार तो चला ही रहे हैं - किसी आरोप का जवाब न देने का महान कार्य भी कर रहे हैं। निरंतर नए आरोप लगाते हुए।

న్యూఢిల్లీ: ఒకే గమ్యానికి వెళ్లే ఏ రైలులోనైనా సాధారణ టికెట్‌తో కూడా ప్రయాణించొచ్చని భారతీయ రైల్వే పేర్కొంది. 'వికల్ప్‌' పథకం ద్వారా పాసింజర్‌ లేదా ఎక్స్‌ప్రెస్‌ టికెట్లు రిజర్వేషన్‌ చేయించుకున్న ప్రయాణీకులు రైలు మిస్‌ అయితే తర్వాత అదే మార్గంలో అందుబాటులో ఉన్న ఏ రైలులోనైనా ప్రయాణించొచ్చని వెల్లడించింది. ఈ మేరకు మంగళవారం ఓ ప్రకటన విడుదల చేసింది.
రాజధాని, శతాబ్ది, దురంతో, సువిధ ,స్పెషల్‌ రైళ్లలో కూడా ఈ సదుపాయం అందుబాటులో ఉండనుంది. ఇలా సూపర్‌ఫాస్ట్‌ రైళ్లను వినియోగించుకున్నందుకు పాసింజర్ల నుంచి ఎలాంటి ఎక్స్‌ట్రా చార్జీలు వసూలు చేయబోమని చెప్పింది. వచ్చే నెల 1వ తేదీ నుంచి ప్రయాణీకులు ఆయా రైళ్లలో ఖాళీగా ఉన్న బెర్తులను వినియోగించుకోవచ్చని తెలిపింది.
రిజర్వేషన్‌ వెయిటింగ్‌ లిస్టులో ఉన్న పాసింజర్లు కూడా ఆ టికెట్లతో ఖాళీగా ఉన్న రైళ్లలో ప్రయాణించొచ్చని వివరించింది. ఈ

సదుపాయాన్ని వినియోగించుకునేందుకు టికెట్లు బుక్‌ చేసుకునే సమయంలో 'వికల్ప్‌' స్కీంను ఎంచుకోవాలని చెప్పింది. దీంతో టికెట్లు వెయిటింగ్‌ లిస్టులో ఉంటే అదే సమయానికి ఖాళీగా ఉండే రైలు వివరాలు సదరు వ్యక్తి మొబైల్‌కు ముందుగానే వస్తాయని తెలిపింది. కాగా, ఫ్లెక్సీ ఫేర్‌ సిస్టంను ప్రారంభించిన తర్వాత ప్రీమియర్‌ రైళ్లలో సీట్లు ఖాళీగా ఉంటున్నాయి. రైల్వే తాజా నిర్ణయంతో లక్షలాది ప్రయాణీకులు సౌకర్యంగా ప్రయాణించేందుకు వీలు కలుగుతుంది.

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,

people buy food and drinks from stalls at railway stations. But, the stalls are normally found to be unhygienic. These AVMs will dispense packaged items like chips, biscuits, bottled soft drinks, and tea/coffee.

On January 15 last year, rail worker Kiran Chaudhary thought he was going to die as blood gushed out of his right hand that had been completely crushed by a 200-kg piece of machinery at the Mahalaxmi EMU workshop.
On Wednesday, the 37-year-old was at the scene of the terrible mishap, confidently moving the same hand to note down the movement of goods and equipment. His right thumb was missing, but he didn’t appear particularly upset about it.
“I can’t believe it — I can use the hand again after what happened,” the

father of two said, sharing his surprise, and joy, at having the hand reattached and making a recovery.
Kiran formally resumed his job in July last year, partly because of the monotony of home stay, but he completed physiotherapy only last month. He has been described as fit for light work, which is mostly clerical tasks.
After a 200-kg rotor almost completely sliced off his right hand, Kiran underwent a five-hour procedure at Jagjivan Ram Railway Hospital in Mumbai Central, where surgeons used sophisticated instruments to reattach the complex networks of bones, tendons, arteries, veins, and tissue. They also operated on his left hand, which had suffered severe damage in the workshop accident.
The reconstructive procedure to fix a badly crushed limb is generally more challenging than a straightforward reattachment or replantation, according to experts.
After the surgery, Kiran completed several sessions of physical therapy to gain movement, strength, and feeling in his hands. Currently, he has 50 per cent feeling and mobility in the right hand and over 70 per cent in the left one.
Kiran and his 32-year-old wife, Pradanya Chaudhary, said the “medical miracle” was the consequence of the efforts of Dr AK Mehta and his team at the railway hospital.
“He [Dr Mehta] is like a god for us. I was so shocked when I first learned about the accident that I blacked out. Seeing Kiran in the hospital in that condition and seeing him now, I cannot properly describe the extreme emotions I experienced,” Pradanya said.
The couple, have a son and a daughter aged 6 and 4, also thanked Kiran’s colleagues who responded quickly to the accident and put his right hand in an ice box and rushed him to the hospital. He was inside an operating theatre within the golden hour, the period when emergency treatment or procedure is most likely to be successful.
The Chaudharys have faced hardships before. Kiran’s father, who is no more, was diagnosed with cancer and his mother has been unable to walk on her own for the past eight years.
“Kiran is the only earning member in the family. We don’t know how we would cope or survive without him,” said his 58-year-old mother, Hemlata Chaudhary.
The railway worker said January 15, 2016, had seemed like any other day at work. “I reached the workshop at 10 am and everything was normal. A 200-kg rotor was being moved with the help of a crane. Something went wrong suddenly and the rotor crashed on my hands,” Kiran said.
A railway employee who witnessed the accident had earlier told Mirror that the crane’s chain may have snapped a few seconds before the rotor was supposed to be released.
WR’s chief public relations officer, Ravinder Bhakar, said he was very happy that Kiran had recovered from the accident and resumed duty. “It’s sort of a medical miracle, really a remarkable operation. We are really happy for our employee and proud of our medical team,” he said.

Protection Force (RPF) plans to deploy mobile bunkers at major railway stations to tackle terrorist attacks. RPF officials of the Central Railway (CR), said to begin with six mobile bunkers will be deployed at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus and Lokmanya Tilak Terminus. Sachin Balode, senior Divisional Security Commissioner, CR, said, mobile bunkers will replace the existing bunkers made of sandbags placed at the entrance to the stations. An RPF official said, “The existing bunkers are not very useful as they are fixed to a spot and terrorists can easily avoid them while planning an attack.” Each mobile bunker is bullet-proof and costs ?75,000. Mr.
Balode said, “The plan has been approved and money has been sanctioned. The order will be delivered by March-end.” The personnel manning the bunkers will be provided with bullet-proof jackets. The Western Railway (WR) is also planning to deploy seven mobile bunkers at important railway stations, including Churchgate, Mumbai Central, Borivali and Bandra. An RPF official said, “However, the tenders have not yet been invited and the file is still being processed at the headquarters.” The proposal is to purchase 24 mobile bunkers costing a total of ?1.8 crore.

अर्थसंकल्पात एमयुटीपी-३साठीच्या निधीबरोबरच एमयुटीपी-२ योजनेअंतर्गत असलेल्या प्रकल्पांसाठीही निधीची तरतूद झाल्यामुळे या योजनेतील विविध प्रकल्पांना चालना मिळाली आहे. सीएसटी-कुर्ला यांदरम्यान पाचव्या-सहाव्या मार्गिकेचे काम गेल्या तीन आठवडय़ांपासून जोरात सुरू झाले आहे. या कामाचा पहिला टप्पा परळ टर्मिनसपर्यंत असून त्यासाठी परळ, शीव आणि कुर्ला या तीन ठिकाणी नवीन प्लॅटफॉर्म उभारणीसाठी हे काम सुरू आहे. विशेष म्हणजे कुर्ला येथे हार्बर मार्गासाठी उन्नत प्लॅटफॉर्म होणार असून त्यासाठीचे काम प्राधान्याने हाती घेण्यात आले आहे.
उपनगरीय रेल्वेची क्षमता वाढवण्यासाठी सीएसटी ते कल्याण यांदरम्यान पाचव्या-सहाव्या मार्गिकेचा प्रकल्प एमयुटीपी-२ योजनेत आखला होता. या प्रकल्पातील दिवा-कल्याण आणि ठाणे-कुर्ला या दोन टप्प्यांमधील काम पूर्ण झाले आहे. ठाणे-दिवा आणि सीएसटी-कुर्ला या दोन महत्त्वाच्या टप्प्यांदरम्यानची कामे सुरू आहेत. या प्रकल्पांसाठी गेल्या वर्षी १३२२ कोटी रुपयांची तरतूद करण्यात आली होती. यंदाही या प्रकल्पांसाठी १२०० कोटी रुपये अर्थसंकल्पात देण्यात आले आहेत. त्यामुळे या प्रकल्पांच्या कामांना वेग आला आहे.
गेल्या तीन आठवडय़ांपासून कुर्ला स्थानकाच्या पूर्वेकडे असलेल्या प्लॅटफॉर्म क्रमांक ९ आणि १० येथे जोरदार कामे सुरू आहेत. या प्लॅटफॉर्मवरून पूर्वी कुर्ला-मानखुर्द लोकल सोडली जात होती. गेल्या काही वर्षांपासून हे प्लॅटफॉर्म ओस पडून आहेत. आता या प्लॅटफॉर्मच्या जागी हार्बर मार्गासाठीचे उन्नत प्लॅटफॉर्म बांधण्यात येणार आहेत. या उन्नत प्लॅटफॉर्मच्या उभारणीसाठी खांबांचा पाया तयार करणे, याआधी या भागात असलेले जुने रूळ आणि लाकडी स्लीपर्स उखडणे ही कामे सध्या सुरू आहेत. विशेष म्हणजे येथे कुल्र्याहून पनवेलकडे गाडय़ा सोडण्यासाठी टर्मिनस प्लॅटफॉर्मही बनवण्यात येणार आहे. कुल्र्याशिवाय शीव स्थानकात प्लॅटफॉर्म क्रमांक एकच्या पश्चिम दिशेला आणि परळ स्थानकात मध्य व पश्चिम रेल्वेच्या मध्ये असलेल्या जागेत कामांना वेग आला आहे. हा प्रकल्प पूर्ण होण्यासाठी आणखी साडेचार ते पाच वर्षे लागणार असल्याचा अंदाज आहे.

साधारण दर्जे की अनारक्षित बोगियों से युक्त पहली सुपरफास्ट अंत्योदय एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन मुंबई (लोकमान्य तिलक टर्मिनल) से टाटानगर के बीच अगले हफ्ते चलेगी। रेल मंत्री सुरेश प्रभु ने आधुनिक डिजाइन और बेहतर सुविधाओं वाली अंत्योदय ट्रेन का बुधवार को अवलोकन किया। लंबी दूरी के सफर के लिए विशेष रूप से तैयार यह ट्रेन लगभग राजधानी की रफ्तार से चलेगी। अंत्योदय ट्रेन चलाने की घोषणा रेल मंत्री ने पिछले साल के रेल बजट में की थी। सफदरजंग रेलवे स्टेशन पर इस ट्रेन को देखने के बाद प्रभु ने कहा, ‘मैं यह ट्रेन आम जनता को समर्पित करता हूं।’

बनाने का पूरा प्रयास किया गया है। बाहरी सतह पर लाल और पीले रंग में विशेष एंटी-ग्रैफिटी कोटिंग की गई है, ताकि इस पर पीक व गंदगी के दाग न जमने पाएं। इनकी सीट काफी गद्देदार है। बॉयोटॉयलेट और डस्टबिन के अलावा इसमें पीने के पानी के लिए आरओ मशीन लगाई गई है। जबकि मोबाइल और लैपटॉप चार्ज करने के लिए प्वाइंट दिए गए हैं। इसमें सामान लटकाने के लिए विशेष हुक, टॉयलेट ऑक्यूपैंसी इंडीकेटर के अतिरिक्त गलियारे की फर्श पर एलईडी लाइटिंग लगाई गई है। कोच को हल्का रखने के लिए एल्युमिनियम का अधिक इस्तेमाल किया गया है।

The utterly complex local timetable which can take railway officials over a fortnight to chalk out won’t rob them of sleep as often, thanks to the brainpower from IIT-Bombay.
A team of professors from the Indian Institute of Technology here collaborated with the Central Railway to write algorithms that have simplified the process of creating railway timetables to a degree that the suburban railway schedules can be created in as little as five minutes.
With the software it has developed, the team created a periodic timetable that unifies the many processes rail staff

would need to employ. The new system is not only a notch above the existing scheduling process, but it also sidesteps various bumps the railways faces, such as fluctuating number of rakes, availability of platforms at certain terminals, and various glitches and deficiencies the railways battle every day.
The professors predict that the software would in time be adopted by suburban rail networks across the country with small tweaks to suit each city’s requirements.
On Thursday, a team comprising Professors Narayan Rangaraj and Madhu Belur, M Tech scholar Soumya Dutta and Central Railway’s deputy chief operations manager (goods) KN Singh gave a presentation on the software to the railway’s operations department.
The authorities that sat in on the meet included chief operations manager RD Sharma and senior divisional operations manager Anil Patke.
Central Railway’s chief public relations officer Narendra Patil told Mumbai Mirror that they had been working on this project with the IIT professors for the last two years. “This will not only help us in more efficient and easier planning but also give us a lot of options for adopting time tables for suburban operations according to our needs,” added Patil.
Professor Rangaraj, from IIT-B’s Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research, said he and his colleagues wanted to help the railway administration with planning things by employing updated planning tools. “With the help of this software, you can also easily find out how many trains you can ply on the given routes,” he said.
The project has been chosen to be presented at a global seminar by the International Association of Railway Operations Research (IAROR) in France to be held in the first week of April. The organisation encourages academic and professional railway research and contributes to the development of new standards for railway traffic management by integrating various scientific disciplines .
