New look for Old Delhi station Sidhartha Roy NEW DELHI:
JANUARY 05, 2017 00:56 IST UPDATED: JANUARY 05, 2017 00:56 IST Work to renovate the over 100-year-old station began last year, to end in April
In four months time, passengers can expect to travel from a completely refurbished Old Delhi railway station.

over 100-year-old Delhi Main (Old Delhi) railway station last year and is hopeful that the project will conclude by April.
A major problem area
One of the major problem areas — the heavily congested main entry point to the station from Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Road — has been tackled with a new circulation plan. “The circulating area near the railway station has been completely revamped,” said Arun Arora, the Divisional Railway Manager Delhi.
The circulation area near the secondary entry point to the station at Hamilton Road too has been improved.
New false ceiling
Mr. Arora said another new addition to the station is a railway information display system, apart from new false ceiling at the entrance to the heritage building. “Drainage was a big problem at the railway station, but that too has been now taken care,” he said.
A major work to be taken up over the next few months is the structural strengthening of the century-old building, for which the authorities have roped in a consultancy firm. Mr. Arora said the building will be totally revamped, complete with elevators. “In another three or four months, passengers will be greeted by a completely new look of Old Delhi railway station,” Mr. Arora said.
The authorities have recently replaced conventional type luminaries with energy efficient LED lighting in the concourse area, booking office, ticket counter, reservation hall, high mast light, street light, platform lighting, etc., at the railway station. A computerised system has been introduced at the station that automatically controls lights and fans at the platforms from a centralised control room.
For enhanced security at the station, CCTV cameras in large numbers are going to be provided to cover all the “blind spots”, Mr. Arora said.
Internet services
Apart from refurbishing the retiring rooms at the railway station, the authorities are also exploring the possibility of tourist information booths at the station in association with Delhi Tourism. The authorities are also planning to provide high-speed Internet services at the station.

It was a tradition for my father to drop me off at the station before my train journeys. It began a decade ago, ever since I started travelling alone. But that valet service is now reserved for significant trips only. So, on a late October morning, when I was about to embark on my childhood dream of travelling across the country in trains, he rolled out his trusted Activa to drop me to Chennai Central. Yes, you read that right: travelling in trains, mostly in sleeper compartments, one after the other, across India, with no strings of sightseeing attached.
Why would anyone want to do that? For most people, the journey is about the destination. But I have been crazy about trains
...
more...
ever since I can remember. My father and his elder brother share the same obsession. My earliest memory is of my parents taking me to railway stations and tricking me into eating food on the pretext of watching trains. My childhood photographs has me, a toddler, at various locations of the (now UNESCO World Heritage) Nilgiri Mountain Railway, or in front of steam locomotives in Tiruchi and meter gauge trains of then Madras.
In 1999, I read Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days. I was in Class V and it made me long for such adventures. The years spent hero-worshipping Phileas Fogg and being obsessed with the Indian Railways ended up in a 12-day sojourn across India, on trains.
As a tribute to my home city, Chennai, I wanted to start and end at two of its iconic stations: Central and Egmore. The idea was to go from one end of the country to another, and I started off with the Coromandel Express, a 1,663 km ride in a sleeper compartment to Howrah.
It was never going to be about solitude. In sleeper coaches, waitlisted passengers, even ticketless travellers, are likely to take your seat if you don’t claim it. They clogged every possible space available, and fitted into narrow berths. To add to the existing chaos was the music from the acoustically-challenged Chinese mobile phones, which every second passenger had. At least I knew Hindi and bargained for some peace, but the only lady in my bay — a senior citizen Telugu lady — felt endangered. It was only when I spoke on my phone in Telugu that she felt relieved. There was also the outgoing Deepak, who loved conversations whenever he didn’t break into an impromptu singing session. First, however, you had to satisfactorily answer two questions: Tumaar jaat ki? Tumaar graam ki? (What is your caste? Where is your village?)

The old terminal at the Howrah station took me back in time – October 25 1872, to be precise. That’s when Fogg and his trusted butler Passepartout had got there after saving the widowed Aouda from sati in Vernes’s novel. Renowned for its distinct cuisine, the city’s biryani with potato commands the utmost loyalty, although it was strange to see its Hyderabadi counterpart being served at the terminal.
From Howrah, I took the Saraighat Express to Guwahati. To get to Guwahati through the chicken’s neck on any form of land transport, one must cross the mighty Ganga and the bountiful Brahmaputra. It was pitch dark as we crossed the Farakka Barrage. But even if I could not see, the sound of the water gushing through the 27 gates of the 44-year-old barrage gave you the freedom to imagine the might of the rivers.
For an average south Indian, the idea of a river is a dry and baked riverbed. The occasional flow of the river that is heavily reliant on the monsoon gives some cheer when there are no heated contests of river water sharing hogging the limelight.
Assam was initially connected by meter gauge rail, before the conversion to broad in the early 1990s. The gauge conversion meant quicker transport; hence, the stations have a prefix to display that — New Bongaigaon, New Jalpaiguri, New Cooch Behar.
From Guwahati, I took another train to Delhi — this time a Rajdhani, my one concession to expensive travel — where the next leg of my journey awaited me. There is not much to see in Guwahati, barring the Kamakhya Temple, and the Brahmaputra after which you are told to go Shillong. Thanks to apps that offer budget hotel booking and friends spread across the country, accommodation was not a hassle.
From Delhi, I caught the Uttar Sampark Kranti, to the sleepy Katra, in Jammu and Kashmir, home to Sri Mata Vaishno Devi. The railway line to Katra — 70 km from Jammu via Udhampur, and which will be connected eventually with Srinagar — is closely guarded, with signs prohibiting photography. My co-passengers to and fro the journey were boisterous families on an extended Diwali pilgrimage break. On the return from Katra to Delhi by Jammu Mail, the train filled up more in Punjab. True to the stereotype, the coaches became lively, noisy and broke the silence of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Chandigarh-Kochuveli (Trivan-drum) Kerala Sampark Kranti traverses just over 3,000 kilometers, connecting the north and south in 53 hours. From the cleaner air in Chandigarh, to polluted climes of the National Capital Region, via the congested atmosphere of Mumbai, the rocky green carpet of the Konkan, and through the salty air of the Arabian sea, this train could well be a window to the large-scale climate deprivation. I hopped on to this one. By the time the train completed its journey, sitting in the sleeper class, I had witnessed polluted fog, early winter chill, unadulterated heat and some sharp rain.
When I arrived in Trivandrum, I took a break for 12 hours, where I roamed the city, took a ride to the beach and watched a Kathakali performance. I boarded my final train, the Guruvayoor-Chennai Egmore, in the wee hours of November 5. By now, I was exhausted and I had lost five kgs.
But oh, what a ride it had been. My journeys had showed me what diversity is – from religion, language and cuisine, to sunsets and sunrises, bitter cold and harsh rains, all in a span of 12 days. The one factor which has also changed travel is technology. I did not get fleeced for local travel, thanks to Uber/Ola. Through an Oyo, I had a room waiting for me well in advance. If that’s not all, I got a Dominos pizza delivered to my berth in Panvel, thanks to IRCTC online. I had heard about apps that deliver food to your berths, and I gave it a shot in Vishakapatnam.
As I completed my journey at Chennai Egmore, I realised that Chennai Central (the place where I started) was just 1,500 metres away on foot. But my love for trains had taken me across 19 states and 10,000 kilometres over 12 days. I might not be able to replicate Phileas Fogg’s journey anytime soon thanks to an Indian passport, but what I have learnt is that even 80 days will not be enough to see the beauty that lies in India. It would take an entire lifetime.

पुरानी दिल्ली, गोरखपुर और वाराणसी रेलवे स्टेशनों पर रेल डिस्प्ले नेटवर्क बनाने का काम पूरा हो गया है। उम्मीद है कि बुधवार को रेल मंत्री सुरेश प्रभु इसकी औपचारिक शुरुआत कर सकते हैं। इस नेटवर्क के तहत तीनों स्टेशनों पर डिस्प्ले टीवी स्क्रीन लगाई गई हैं, जिन पर मुसाफिरों को ट्रेन के आने-जाने और प्लैटफॉर्म नंबर की जानकारी मिलेगी। स्क्रीन्स का खर्च प्राइवेट कंपनी उठाएगी। बदले में उसे विज्ञापन दिखाने का अधिकार होगा। इस तरह रेलवे की कमाई भी होगी।
रेलवे ने अजमेर शताब्दी और चेन्नै-मैसूर शताब्दी के बीच तीन कॉरिडोर में फ्लेक्सी फेयर की बजाय तय दर पर ही किराया लेने का फैसला किया है। इससे इन कॉरिडोर में यात्रा करने पर पैसेंजरों को अब पहले के मुकाबले 30 से 140

रुपये तक कम किराया देना होगा। रेलवे का यह फैसला मंगलवार से लागू हो जाएगा। ये तीनों रूट- अजमेर से जयपुर या जयपुर से किशनगढ़ और मैसूर से बेंगलुरु हैं। इनमें फ्लेक्सी फेयर लागू नहीं होगा।
खाली सीटों पर दस फीसदी छूट देगा रेलवे•विस, नई दिल्ली : राजधानी, शताब्दी और दुरंतो ट्रेनों में फ्लेक्सी किराया लागू होने के बाद अब रेलवे ने चार्ट बनने के बाद खाली रह गई सीटों पर दस फीसदी छूट देने का फैसला किया है।
 रेलवे के सूत्रों का कहना है कि खाली जा रही सीटों को देखते हुए यह फैसला लिया गया है। सितंबर में शताब्दी, राजधानी और दुरंतो में फ्लेक्सी किराया लागू करने पर रेलवे को चौतरफा आलोचना का सामना करना पड़ा था। बाद में रेलवे ने ऐलान किया था कि वह तीन महीने बाद इसकी समीक्षा करेगा। हाल ही में की गई समीक्षा के दौरान रेलवे को पता चला कि 9 सितंबर से 31 अक्टूबर के बीच इन ट्रेनों में पांच हजार आठ सौ से ज्यादा बर्थ खाली रहीं। इसके बाद रेलवे ने अब यह नया फैसला किया है। यह फैसला भी उसने प्रयोग के रूप में छह महीने के लिए ही किया है। रेलवे अधिकारियों का कहना है कि राजधानी, शताब्दी और दुरंतो में अगर चार्ट बनने के बाद सीटें खाली रह जाती हैं तो उस स्थिति में टिकट करवाने पर दस फीसदी की छूट मिलेगी। यह छूट उस किराए पर ही मिलेगी, जो आखिरी टिकट के लिए चार्ज किया गया होगा। यानी अगर पचास फीसदी अतिरिक्त चार्ज के साथ आखिरी टिकट बिका होगा तो अंतिम वक्त में टिकट लेने वाले पैसेंजर को 40 फीसदी अतिरिक्त चार्ज देना होगा।

रेल मंत्रालय ने टिकट बुकिंग काउंटरों पर आने वाले रेल यात्रियों की सहूलियत के लिए प्वांइट ऑफ सेल (पीओएस) मशीन (कार्ड स्वॉइप मशीन) लगानी शुरू कर दी है। पिछले दो दिनों में दिल्ली, मुंबई, कोलकाता, चेन्नई सहित बड़े शहरों में 140 पीओएस मशीनें लगाई गई हैं। इनकी मदद से नकदी की किल्लत से जूझ रहे यात्री क्रेडिट और डेबिट कार्ड से रेल टिकट का भुगतान कर सकेंगे।
रेल मंत्रालय के एक वरिष्ठ अधिकारी ने बताया कि पीओएस आरक्षित टिकट काउंटर और अनारक्षित टिकट काउंटरों दोनों पर लगाई जाएंगी। प्रथम चरण में महानगरों सहित बड़े रेलवे स्टेशनों पर यह मशीनें लगाई जा रही है। ऐसे स्थानों पर अधिक भीड़ रहती है। इसके बाद छोटे स्टेशनों पर मशीन लगाने की प्रक्रिया शुरू की जाएगी।

उन्होंने बताया कि बताया कि स्टेट बैंक ऑफ इंडिया ने 10,000 पीओएस लगाने की मंजूरी दी है। फिलहाल एक हजार मशीने अगले कुछ दिनों में लगाने का लक्ष्य है।
अधिकारी ने बताया कि देशभर मे आरक्षित टिकट काउंटर (पीआरएस) व अनारक्षित टिकट काउंटर (यूटीएस) की संख्या लगभग 27,000 है। इसलिए मशीन लगाने का काम तेजी से करना होगा। लेकिन पीओएस मशीनें आयात की जाती हैं और एसबीआई के पास इतनी बड़ी मात्रा में मशीनें उपलब्ध नहीं है। उन्होंने बताया कि टिकट काउंटरों पर मशीन लगाने के लिए रेलवे दूसरे राष्ट्रीय बैंकों से संपर्क कर रही है। जिससे लोगों की जल्द सहूलियत मिल सके। उन्होंने बताया कि कैशलेस से बुकिंग क्लर्क द्वारा खुले पैसे नहीं होने का बहाना बनाकर यात्रियों से पांच-दस रुपये नहीं देने का सिलसिला भी बंद हो जाएगा।
करोड़ों को होगा फायदा
- 2.30 करोड़ यात्री रोजाना लंबी दूरी की ट्रेनों में सफर करते
- 12,700 यात्री ट्रेन रोजाना रेल की पटरियों पर दौड़ती हैं
- 12 लाख किलोमीटर रोजाना कुल दूरी तय करती हैं ट्रेनें
- 2.18 करोड़ उपनगरीय या पैसेंजर ट्रेन सेवाओं का इस्तेमाल करते
मौजूदा स्थिति
- 58 फीसदी यात्री मौजूदा समय में ई-टिकट बुकिंग करा रहे हैं
- 7 लाख यात्रियों को रोजाना फायदा होगा इन स्वाइप मशीनों से

नई दिल्ली : कोहरे ने सोमवार देर रात से राष्ट्रीय राजधानी दिल्ली समेत लगभग पूरे उत्तर भारत को घने कोहरे की चपेट में ले लिया है। धुंध के चलते दृश्यता जहां बहुत कम हो गई वहीं गलन भी बढ़ गई। अन्य दिनों की अपेक्षा मंगलवार को लोग ठंड से ज्यादा प्रभावित दिखे। दोपहर बाद तक वाहन रेंगते रहे। यही नहीं रेल और हवाई यातायात भी प्रभावित हुआ है। दिल्ली में मंगलवार सुबह से छाया कोहरा देर शाम तक बना रहा। मौसम विभाग का कहना है कि बुधवार को कोहरा और गहराएगा। हवा की गति कम होने के कारण पांच दिनों तक कोहरा छाये रहने की आशंका है। तापमान में कमी और कोहरे के कारण राजधानी में प्रदूषण का स्तर भी बढ़ा है। सोमवार की अपेक्षा मंगलवार को प्रदूषण के स्तर में बढ़ोतरी दर्ज की गई। आगे भी प्रदूषण के स्तर में बढ़ोतरी हो सकती है। पालम और सफदरजंग में सुबह 5.30...

ENCROACHMENTS STUMP RAILWAYS TEAM FROM DELHI

Encroachments stump railways team from Delhi
The Passenger Amenity Committee inspected stations

in the city last week
Panel that audits passenger amenities finds curious cases of encroachment, neglect at stations
A cattle shed, a video game parlour, an illegal labour market, and secret sub-lessees. Things one would generally not associate with a railway station have become common features at some of Mumbai’s crowded train terminals, a top rail committee from Delhi found during a surprise inspection last week.
The encroachments are constantly shrinking space and scope for making improvements at our stations, which are routinely rated among the worst in the country. The Passenger Amenity Committee (PAC), which audits stations periodically, also learned that while there are demands for more funds to set up new facilities at stations, there has been little effort to maintain the existing amenities.
The panel will share its findings with the Railway Board and Union rail minister Suresh Prabhu. Its threeday visit to Mumbai last week was its third in the past few months. The panel had informed Central and Western Railways about the visit, but it had not disclosed which stations it planned to inspect.
Its targets included Malad, Khar Road and Chembur stations, and Kurla’s Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT). An audit was also carried out at the Matunga railway workshop. According to an official, the quality of work done at rail workshops in Mumbai has come under scrutiny after the Patna-bound Indore- Rajendranagar Express derailed near Kanpur on November 20, killing 145 people and injuring over 200.
The train’s compartments had undergone periodic maintenance at one of WR’s yards in Mumbai.
LOKMANYA TILAK TERMINUS
The terminal, which was revamped at a cost of over Rs 20 crore, is often described by passengers as one of the city’s most inaccessible stations. But hawkers and residents of nearby slums don’t face any difficulty while entering the station’s massive compound because there is no fence or boundary wall. Some parts of the compound have become illegal hawking zones, the Passenger Amenity Committee found.
Another major issue: some of the toilets at the terminus are kept locked without any reason. When committee questioned the station master and the GRP last week, they had no answer.
“We have asked authorities to keep them open for passengers and maintain them. Railway officials want funds to set up new facilities, but don’t want to maintain existing ones,” said the committee’s chairman, Ashok Tripathi.
WHAT CR SAYS
“The toilets were closed as they are part of the old booking office, which will be razed. Other toilets on the premises have been kept open for passengers. The complaints about hawkers and encroachments have gone down considerably, and further action has been planned,” said CR’s divisional railway manager, Ravindra Goel.
MALAD STATION
A cattle shed at the station stumped the committee, which drew railway officials’ attention to the fact that so many people find it difficult to enter the premises. “A woman who set up the shed claims each morning she sends 1 litre of milk to the station master who allowed her to use the space,” Tripathi said.
WHAT WR SAYS
“There were soft encroachments like the cattle shed, which was removed immediately. The area is densely populated so encroachments come up, but we remove them quickly,” said WR’s divisional railway manager, Mukul Jain.
KHAR ROAD STATION
The station’s exit area is often occupied by labourers who wait for contractors to hire them. The informal labour market is a major obstruction for commuters. The inspection panel has asked railway officials to move the workers to a spot away from the station.
WHAT WR SAYS
“We will shift the workers and make sure commuters don’t face any hurdles. Illegal hawkers are routinely fined and driven away,” said WR’s divisional railway manager, Mukul Jain.
CHEMBUR STATION
While the railway police are trying to improve security on trains and at stations, a dingy gaming parlour has come up next to a booking office at Chembur station. “There are allegations that betting and other illegal activities take place at the shop, which is on the railway premises,” said Irfan Ahmed, a member of the inspection committee. “The railways cannot allow such businesses to operate at a station.” The committee also learned about allegations that shops on railway premises are being illegally subleased to businesses such as including eateries.
WHAT CR SAYS
“The problem of the gaming parlour has been brought to our notice and I have sought the file. I will inspect the site. Complaints of encroachments on the suburban section are promptly addressed, but the illegal structures keep coming up again. We have redoubled our efforts,” said CR’s divisional railway manager, Ravindra Goel.

As announced by Minister of Railways, a high-tech centralized network of screens across major stations, known as Rail Display Network is proposed, which will enable real time flow of information to passengers and also unlock advertising potential. A feasibility study was done by RailTel who have been assigned with the task. The Rail Display Network project has been recommended for Proof of Concept which is presently under implementation at five stations viz. Delhi, Gorakhpur, Gwalior, Jaipur and Varanasi.
After implementation of the Proof of Concept, final decision to roll out the network will be taken.
