Train commuters from north travelling to the eastern region of the country were the ones who are said to be most affected by train delays in the month of May, 2017.

Train commuters from north travelling to the eastern region of the country were the ones who are said to be most affected by train delays in the month of May, 2017. The official data, collected by The Indian Express, stated that of the 19,450 trains that failed to report to its destinations on time (between May 1 to May 30), around
...

11,600 – or 59.64 per cent – where from UP’s North Central Railway, Bihar’s East Central Railway, North Eastern Railway, Kolkata-based Eastern Railway and the New Delhi-based Northern Railway. When inquired about the prime reasons behind these delays, records said that these trains were halted due to causes within the control of the Railways department such as collateral damages, track issues, operational glitches and the ongoing maintenance works.
.
Even best considered trains of the country including Rajdhani trains, which runs of priority of path, were affected by these delays. Compared to the same period last year, the punctuality rate of Rajdhani trains are said to have dipped by 8.61 per cent to 78 per cent in April-May.
.
The report also listed some other prominent trains catering to the east were hit by these delays in April-May. The names include:
.
i. Shramjeevi Express – one of the most opted superfast train connecting New Delhi to Rajgir in Bihar via Varanasi and Patna, was delayed by more than one hour some 22 days in May, clocking a punctuality rate of 4 per cent.
.
ii. Magadha Express – considered to be one of the oldest trains linking New Delhi to Islampur in Bihar, logged almost a ‘zero percent’ punctuality rate during this period.
.
iii. Not just in May, but the situation were similar in June, too, with the Northeast Express, connecting New Delhi to Guwahati via Bihar running 14 hours behind schedule on June 8. On the same day, the Anand Vihar-Bhagalpur Garib Rath Express reached its destination 10 hours late.
.
Speaking to Indian Express on the condition of anonymity, Railway officials said that these delays, which often stretched to 15 hours, marked the worst performance by the Indian Railways in the recent year, excluding the fog-hit months of winter season. Justifying the delays, Railway Board Member (Traffic), Mohammad Jamshed said that the east-bound trains ran late because of the speed restrictions imposed due to a lot of planned work on the tracks related to maintenance and capacity augmentation.
.
“Trains, especially to eastern India, are getting delayed. That’s why our overall punctuality has taken a hit. But that’s mostly because a lot of planned work of doubling of lines as well as maintenance are going on for which trains have to run as slow as 20 km per hour at various stretches,” Jamshed said.
.
“This pain is temporary as work on capacity augmentation and maintenance are necessary and cannot be taken up once the monsoon sets in,” he added further.
.
The Railways has 33 categories of reasons for delays and seven out of them are not in its control. These reasons are alarm chain being pulled, protests on the tracks, bad weather, accidents, and law and order. The report further stated that in May only 8 per cent of the delays were due to the planned work, whereas 10.22 per cent of the delays were due to track related issues which include maintenance and safety-related speed restrictions
.
“Then there are causes over which we have no control, like when the Maoists called a bandh in the Dhanbad division for 10 days. Security agencies advised us to run at reduced speeds in those areas. Once a train gets delayed, it has a rippling effect on all other trains, creating a loop of late trains,” Jamshed said.
.
However, the data reflects that in May only 3.04 per cent trains were delayed due to law and order problems. According to Railways rules, a user can see train-running status of only up to two days, but records examined shows that the worst graph during the April-May was that of Hajipur (Patna)-based East Central Railway, which services Bihar and Jharkhand. As per the arrival data of this region, the punctuality rate dipped to almost 50 per cent during this time which means every second Bihar- Jharkhand train was running late.
.
Here is the punctuality details of other sectors in the east for April-May period:
.
i. Kolkata-based Eastern Railway marked a punctuality rate of around 69.8 per cent, which is a 7.9 per cent dip compared to the same period last year.
.
ii. Gorakhpur-based North Eastern Railway, which includes Lucknow and Varanasi divisions, dipped by 7.9 per cent to clock 63 per cent punctuality.
.
iii. Guwahati-based Northeast Frontier Railway’s punctuality rate was clocked at 74 per cent which is again a dip of 8.4 per cent from this period last year.
.
East Central Railways general manager, DK Gayen Indian Express, “Yes, there are delays. But whenever capacity augmentation work takes place, various speed restrictions come in because of which trains have to run at low speeds. It’s temporary. If you see, the situation has started getting back to normal in the past two-three weeks.”

ALL GMs are making people fool. Real research shows 12401/02 Magadh Exp running late more than 4 to 5 hours since 2010 delayed only due to least preference train declared internally by North Central railay, Northern railway and East Central Railway. According to one agency, it punctuality rate -365 & 12391 Shramjeevi Exp earlier running almost RT and punctuality rate was more than 80 % but last 3 months Northern Railway Delhi is not ready to take before 9 am because there is washing line and pit line problem in Delhi hence they took at 9.00 instead of 5 am and send directly to secondary maintenance. Main delay area , Lucknow outer 1 hours to 2 hours and Moradabad =Delhi one hour to 1.30 hrs, total late: 3 hours to 4 hours daily. Poor efficiency of controller and lack Guard and Drivers are mainly responsible for all delayed in Eastern bound...

राजगीर। राजगीर से दिल्ली को जाने वाली श्रमजीवी एक्सप्रेस का परिचालन शनिवार से बंद हो जाने के बाद यात्रियों के होने वाली परेशानी को दूर करने के लिए वैकल्पिक व्यवस्था करने की मांग यहां के जनप्रतिनिधियों ने की है। लोगों ने कहा कि श्रमजीवी एक्सप्रेस सिर्फ दिल्ली ही नहीं बल्कि पटना-दानापुर जाने वाले डेली पैसेंजरों के लिए भी यह एक महत्वपूर्ण ट्रेन है। पटना व दानापुर में सरकारी या प्राईवेट नौकरी करने वाले किसी ऑफिस के कार्य से पटना जाने वाले यात्रियों के लिए या अन्य कार्य के लिए पटना सहित इस रुट की अन्य स्थानों तक जाने के लिए श्रमजीवी एक महत्वपूर्ण ट्रेन है। लोगों ने मांग करते हुए कहा कि कम से कम पटना या दानापुर तक कोई एक्सप्रेस श्रमजीवी के टाइम अर्थात 8.10 बजे में राजगीर रेलवे स्टेशन से खुलवाई जाय। लोगों ने कहा कि राजगीर से बिहारशरीफ तक को¨चग व कालेज जाने आने वाले छात्रों के लिए...

भी यह ट्रेन काफी महत्वपूर्ण है। इसी समय में कोई दूसरा एक्सप्रेस या सुपरफास्ट ट्रेन का परिचालन तब तक कराने की मांग किया है जब तक कि श्रमजीवी एक्सप्रेस का परिचालन पुन: शुरू न हो जाय। मांग करने वालों में उमराव प्रसाद निर्मल, शंकर यादव, निरंजन ¨सह, प्रवीण ¨सह, श्यामदेव राजवंशी सहित अन्य शामिल हैं।

राजगीर-इंटरसिटी एक्सप्रेस का इंजन शनिवार को शंटिंग के दौरान इंजन का एक चक्का पटरी से उतर गया। इस कारण राजगीर-दानापुर को जाने वाली इंटरसिटी एक्सप्रेस डेढ़ घंटे देर से खुली। श्रमजीवी एक्सप्रेस का इंजन लगाकर खोला गया। इस कारण पटना सहित अन्य जगहों को जाने वाले यात्रियों को भारी परेशानी का सामना करना पड़ा। यात्रियों को इस तपती गर्मी में ट्रेन में बैठकर ही समय बीतना पड़ा। ड्यूटी पर तैनात स्टेशन मास्टर रंजीत कुमार ने बताया कि राजगीर इंटरसिटी एक्सप्रेस में पटना से शनिवार को विद्युतीकरण काम के लिए एक और इंजन आया था। उसी इंजन को चार नम्बर प्लेटफार्म पर इसे शंटिंग किया जा रहा था। इंजन काटकर वहां से निकलने के दौरान ही इंटरसिटी के इंजन का एक चक्का पटरी से उतर गया। बाद में इसे श्रमजीवी एक्सप्रेस का इंजन लगाकर खोला गया। वहीं इंटरसिटी के इंजन को पटरी पर लाने के लिए कर्मी लगे हुए हैं।

UDAIPUR: For the fourth consecutive year, the Devasthan Department is gearing up to take senior citizens to religious places under the free pilgrimage scheme.
.
This year, 10,000 elderly persons would benefit from the scheme that was initiated by the Congress government in 2013. The department had received 24,578 applications from across the state and 10,000 persons have been selected for the journey on lottery basis from quota granted to each district as per the ratio of population.

The first train would leave with 960 pilgrims from Jaipur to Rameshwaram on December 21. The trips to other destinations would completed before March end.
.
For the first time, the state government is providing air travel to selected pilgrims aged 70 years and above. "We had invited applications from senior citizens who are of 70 years and above to travel by air. The response was phenomenal with 4,339 opting for the same. Going by the quota of travellers attributed to each district, 1,000 people have been selected for the air journey while the remaining 9,000 people would be taken in trains," Devasthan commissioner Ashok Yadav told TOI.
.
The air travellers may have to wait until February for the trip considering the foggy climate in the northern parts of the country. The air journey would incur no extra burden on the government, claims the officer. "We have a budget of Rs 15 crore for the scheme this year and approximately Rs 16,000 is spent per person. This includes the entire cost including to and fro travel, food and lodgings and miscellaneous expenses. The air travel will not attract additional expenditure and will be covered similarly," Yadav said.
.
This time two new destinations have been added for the benefit of the pilgrims. Shravanabelagola - a popular Jain pilgrimage centre in Karnataka and Shri Patna Sahib in Bihar have been added to the list of destinations.
.
Vaishno Devi, Amritsar, Gaya-Kashi, Sammed Shikhar, Bihar Sharif, Jagganath Puri, Dwarkapuri, Shirdi, Goa, Tirupati and Rameshwaram are among other popular destinations covered under the scheme.
