Kolkata: The Railways has sent a letter to the West Bengal government stating that from now on the state has to take responsibilities for all ongoing and upcoming projects of the suburban system as well as Metro Railway.
According to a highly-placed source at the state secretariat Nabanna, the letter addressed to the Chief Secretary, the Transport Secretary and the Urban Development Secretary, was sent last week from the Railways Works Planning Directorate.
It stated that the Railways, in the last few years had incurred losses of around to Rs 15,000 crore due

to delay in projects including Metro Rail projects, which were either delayed or stalled because of various hindrances.
In the letter, the Railways has asked the state government to take responsibilities about removal and rehabilitation of encroaches on its land, feasibility study of any proposed project and so on, the officer said.
It has also proposed the state can utilise funds meant for urban transport projects or can levy different forms of taxes and development fees to releasing project costs, he said.
Incidentally, a couple of months back the Centre had verbally given similar proposals to the state government, which the latter had dismissed, the officer added.

It is a right step, and should have been taken much earlier.
Just like other metro cities, WB Govt too take charge of/ financially participate in the Metro and suburban train operation. State Govt is major beneficiary of the economic activities discharged by the Kolkata Metro suburban commuters and the tax/duties paid by them/ their business/ their employers. Hence state govt must come forward to share its responsibility instead of asking funds from centre to subsidise it.
Why should poor passengers/citizens of other poorer states bear the brunt of this subsidy
...

given to relatively richer Kolkata populace?
Kolkata Metro is the only metro train running on heavy subsidy born by IR, rest are all joint ventures of State Govt/IR/PPP ventures.
Declaration of Kolkata as 17th zone of IR is height of political expediency which bleed IR to the tune of INR 1000 crores every year & injustice to rest of the states of India.

Kya karein Didi ko beech mein hi support hata ke (Gathbandhan se alag hoke) WB state elections mein koodne ki aadat hai. Is liye yoh 1-2 saal ke liye hi RM reh paati hai jo uske pet-projects ko poora karne ke liye nokaafi rehta hai. Projects poora karne ke liye 5 saal tak tik ke RM bana rehna padta hai.
Saath mein WB ko diya gaya (Lion's + Lioness's) share, unke karyakaal ke ant tak dher saare adhure projects ko janam de deta hai.

The right step has been taken from the perspective of IR, what ever may be the reason. Be it financial crunch being faced by IR or the tussle. IR could save much more than 1000 crore Rs/year.
It is a lesson, one should not be overwhelmed with the strengths, weaknesses should always kept in mind.
WB with poor financial condition inherited from decades of Leftist rule very much like the central govt inherited after decades of opposition rule esp UPA-II.

govt chose to collect more taxes (politically not desired) and move forward in the path of development. TMC govt on the other hand continued with politics of appeasement rather than the hard way of going for development.
If Kolkata is to be developed like London(as earlier desired by Bengal CM), it has to be through efforts of CM/State Govt and not by RM from Bengal sanctioning projects of about 50,000 Crore Rs to be funded from the kitty of IR, for the Kolkata Metro & other related Expansion Projects. Disinterest or non-participation of state govt is the main reason for not so satisfactory state of affairs of Kolkata Metro.
Kolkata, which historically had been the No.1 city of India from point of view of importance, business, education, financial might etc. is slipping fast with Delhi & Mumbai distinctly overtaking it and much less populous cities like Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad are being considered almost at par with Kolkata in many matters of importance. Poor state governance is the most important reason for this continuous downfall.

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

धनबाद से जम्मूतवी के बीच बोझिल यात्रा से लोगों को मुक्ति मिलने वाली है। रेलवे ने सियालदह से कटरा के बीच ‘हमसफर एक्सप्रेस’ चलाने की योजना बनाई है। यह ट्रेन धनबाद होकर कटरा जाएगी। एक अक्तूबर से जारी होने वाली नई समय-सारिणी में सियालदह-कटरा ‘हमसफर एक्सप्रेस’को जगह दी गई है।
रेल मंत्री सुरेश प्रभु ने देश के अहम स्टेशनों के बीच हमसफर, अंत्योदय, तेजस और उदय एक्सप्रेस चलाने की घोषणा की थी। अब ट्रेनों के रूट और समय का निर्धारण हो रहा है। इसी कड़ी में सियालदह-कटरा रूट पर धनबाद होकर ‘हमसफर एक्सप्रेस’ चलेगी। सियालदह से यह ट्रेन हर सोमवार को खुलेगी और शाम 7.05 बजे धनबाद, रात 9.47 बजे गया और रात 12.05 बजे मुगलसराय होते हुए कटरा के लिए रवाना

होगी। वापसी में कटरा से चल कर यह ट्रेन हर गुरुवार को दोपहर 1.15 बजे धनबाद पहुंचेगी। ट्रेन की सभी बोगियां थ्री एसी होंगी। ‘हमसफर एक्सप्रेस’के डिब्बों को आधुनिक रूप दिया गया है। राजधानी और शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस की तरह यह ट्रेन 130 किमी प्रति घंटा की गति से चलेगी। इस ट्रेन के शुरू होने की तिथि की घोषणा बाद में की जाएगी।
खास है हमसफर एक्‍सप्रेस
1. कपूरथला में बोगियां तैयार की गई हैं, हर बोगी में 64 की जगह 72 सीटें
2. ट्रेन में मिनी पेंट्रीकार है, यात्रियों के लिए ओवन और फ्रीज की भी व्यवस्था
3. कोचों में एलएचबी (लिंक हॉफमैन बुश) तकनीक, ताकि जर्क कम लगे
4. सीसीटीवी, जीपीएस बेस्ड पैसेंजर्स इंफॉर्मेशन सिस्टम, फायर डिटेक्शन

Change Lucknow's terminal point to LKO NR. LJN is NER and trains from BSB can only go there if they go via Faizabad. Faizabad route is single diesel and there is no way it can be covered in 4 hrs. The Sultanpur route[double electric] only goes to LKO, not to LJN.

A study has revealed that these children (average age 12) are subjected to extensive "physical and sexual abuse."
The physical torture and sexual exploitation of migrant children living in major railway stations of Bengal became apparent when a couple of years back several such children drew the sketch of a stick at a drawing programme held during a survey.
According to researchers associated with the programme, the sketch of a stick drawn by most of these migrant children was a symbol of physical abuse. The sticks not only indicated “physical assault by the

law enforcement personnel but also sexual abuse as it can be interpreted as the male genitalia,” the researchers said.
A study has revealed that these children (average age 12) are subjected to extensive “physical and sexual abuse.”
The study, published in a report of the Mahanirban Calcutta Research Group (MCRG), a leading forum of research scholars, was jointly authored by Sabir Ahamed, a research coordinator at the Pratichi Trust, and Debarati Bagchi, former research associate with MCRG.
“Their profiles recorded by the NGOs and Railway Authorities reveal that an overwhelming 78 per cent of the children traced as runaway children or missing children at Sealdah station belong to marginalised social groups, i.e, Scheduled Castes and Muslims,” stated the research paper titled “A Study of Women and Children Migrants in Calcutta.” It also states that on an average three migrant children arrive at major railway stations of the State everyday.
In the study, Mr. Ahamed points out that one of the key reasons behind these children running away from home is the “pressure” from their parents to financially contribute to the family. Majority of these homeless children at Sealdah station are from North and South 24 Parganas districts as well as from Howrah and Hooghly. While 80 per cent of these children are from Bengal, the rest are from Jharkhand, Bihar, Odisha, Assam, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.
They also fall prey to drug addiction and spend most of their earnings on it. “They spent most of their meagre daily income, ranging from Rs. 350 to Rs. 500, on drugs and sometimes on sex,” Mr. Ahamed told The Hindu.
As for women migrants, research by Ms. Bagchi has found that they (migrant women) increasingly preferred rag picking over working as domestic help.
“Rag picking provides them flexible working hours and they also do not have to face the humiliation involved in working as domestic help,” she told The Hindu. As domestic help, these women are not only discriminated against in wages but are often not allowed to use the toilet at the houses of employers.

KOLKATA: The scene at Platform No. 7 in Sealdah station on Wednesday morning appeared to be straight out of the Hollywood movie 'Snakes on a plane', with passengers jostling for space to get a glimpse of an unusual co-passenger - an over-seven-feet python that had reportedly made a 17-hour journey from Bihar's Saharsa.
GRP officers inspecting the Down 13164 Hatey Bazare Express, after in chugged into Sealdah at 7.30am, were in for a shock when they came upon a loosely tied synthetic bag left behind by someone. On investigating, they found a snake inside. Foresters were called in and when they emerged from the train, they had with them a 7ft-4inch Indian rock python, considered near threatened by the IUCN.
