The route of iconic Darjeeling Mail, that connects Siliguri – the gateway of North East India- to City of Joy- Kolkata, might get altered for better by the end of 2017- in terms of both fares and travel time, according to reports. Currently, Darjeeling mail runs from Sealdah to New Jalpaiguri station, situated near Siliguri, via Barddhaman Junction and Malda town. At present, it takes over nine and a half hours to reach New Jalpaiguri from Sealdah or vice versa. Railways have proposed that the train will run via Murshidabad and Azimganj to reach Malda town and subsequently New Jalpaiguri. The proposed move will shorten the route resulting in deduction in travel time. It has been learned that railways could slash fares of Darjeeling Mail.

issue regarding rail-bridge over the river Ganga, that was stalled for years, has been resolved. The bridge connects Murshidabad to Azimganj. The land acquisition issue was finally resolved following the Mamata Banerjee government’s intervention
Till now, there was no direct rail route between Murshidabad and north Bengal. The proposed route will resolve the issue. However, passengers boarding Darjeeling Mail from Barddhaman Junction will face difficulties.
There is a toy train service between ‘Queen of Hills’ Darjeeling and New Jalpaiguri. The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, consists of 88.48 km of narrow gauge track that connects New Jalpaiguri with Darjeeling, passing through Ghoom at an altitude of 2258 meters.

বিকট গন্ধ। সঙ্গে বিদঘুটে শব্দ। শিয়ালদহ থেকে এনজেপি যাবেন বলে পদাতিক এক্সপ্রেসে উঠেই আঁতকে উঠেছিলেন হাওড়ার দেবী ঘোষ। এনজেপিতে নামার আগেও একই দৃশ্য নিয়মিত দেখা যায়। পদাতিক এক্সপ্রেসের বাতানুকূল থ্রি টিয়ার কামরায় জামা খুলে বার্থে উপুড় হয়ে শুয়ে রয়েছেন কেউ কেউ। তাঁদের গায়ে তেল ছড়িয়ে চলছে মালিশ। নিয়মিত যাঁরা যাতায়াত করেন, তাঁরা তাই ট্রেনটির নাম দিয়েছেন ‘ম্যাসাজ পার্লার অন হুইলস’।
শিয়ালদহে মালিশ চলে ট্রেন ছাড়ার আগের দশ পনেরো মিনিট। কামরায় উঠে পড়েন ‘মালিশওয়ালারা’। সহযাত্রীদের সম্মতির তোয়াক্কা না করে কেউ কেউ জামা খুলে ফেলেন। কেউ প্যান্ট গুটিয়ে নেন। ‘আয়ুর্বেদিক তেল’ দিয়ে শুরু হয় মালিশ। তারপরেই কামরা জুড়ে ছড়িয়ে পড়ে কটু গন্ধ। তার সঙ্গে ধপাস, চপাস শব্দ। কেউ ব্যথা পেয়ে চেঁচান, কেউ আনন্দে। দেবী বলেন, ‘‘মুখ ঘুরিয়ে বসেছিলাম। কিন্তু মাথা ধরে যাচ্ছিল ওই শব্দ

আর গন্ধে। কিছু বলতে সাহস পাইনি।’’ মিনিট পাঁচেকের মধ্যে রেলের সাফাইকর্মীরা উঠে সুগন্ধি স্প্রে করে দিয়ে যান।
একই দৃশ্য যাত্রাপথের শেষের দিকেও। কিসানগঞ্জ এলেই আবার কামরায় ম্যাসাজের হাঁকাহাঁকি। শুধু পদাতিক নয়, কামরূপ এক্সপ্রেসেও বহু দিন ধরেই এই কাণ্ড চলছে। মধ্য চল্লিশের উমিদ রায় দাবি করলেন, কয়েক বছর ধরে ট্রেনে ম্যাসাজই তাঁর পেশা। খোলাখুলিই কারবার চালান। সুগন্ধিও ছড়ানো হয় না। উমিদের হকারের লাইসেন্সও নেই। উমিদ বলেন, ‘‘চুরি তো করছি না। ফুল বডি আড়াইশো, হেড অ্যান্ড শোল্ডার দেড়শো, ওনলি হেড ৫০ টাকা।’’ পুলিশ, টিটিই, রেলকর্মীদের কী ভাবে ম্যানেজ করেন? উমিদের দাবি, প্রয়োজনে কিছু ‘ফ্রি ম্যাসাজ’ দিতে হয় তাঁকে। কিন্তু স্রেফ এই দু’টো ট্রেনে কেন! উমিদের জবাব, ‘‘কামরূপ, পদাতিকেই লোকে বেশি ম্যাসাজ করায়।’’ দার্জিলিং মেলের মতো কিছু ট্রেন তাঁরা এড়িয়ে চলেন।
–– ADVERTISEMENT ––
যাত্রীদের বক্তব্য, রেলকর্তারা জানেন না, তা হতে পারে না। রেলের কাটিহার ডিভিশনের সিনিয়র এরিয়া ম্যানেজার পার্থসারথি শীল বলেন, ‘‘ট্রেনের কামরায় ম্যাসাজ করাটা অসভ্যতা। ঘটনা শুনেই ঊর্ধ্বতন কর্তৃপক্ষকে জানিয়েছি। এ সব বন্ধ
হয়ে যাবে।’’
কিন্তু এত দিন ধরে চলছেই বা কী করে? বুধবারের কথাই ধরা যাক। এনজেপিগামী পদাতিক কিসানগঞ্জ ছাড়ার পরেই ‘মালিশ-মালিশ’ আওয়াজে সরগরম হয়ে যায় বাতানুকূল টু-টিয়ার কোচ। একটু পরেই শুরু হয়ে যায় গন্ধ আর শব্দের উপদ্রব। ঘটনাচক্রে, সেই ট্রেনেই ছিলেন সপরিবার পর্যটন ব্যবসায়ীদের সংগঠনের নেতা সম্রাট সান্যাল। তিনি বলেন, ‘‘ট্রেনের মধ্যে এতটা অভব্য ব্যাপার দিনের পর দিন কী ভাবে চলতে পারে? আগে তো এমন ছিল না। সব মহলে জানাব।’’
সূত্রের খবর, কোনও অভিযোগ নেই বলে কেউই ব্যবস্থা নিচ্ছেন না। কিন্তু, রেল সুরক্ষা আইনের ১৪৫ ধারা অনুযায়ী ট্রেনের কামরায় এমন কোনও আচরণ কিংবা কাজ করা যাবে না, যাতে সহযাত্রীদের অসুবিধে হয়। তেমন দেখলে স্বতঃপ্রণোদিত ভাবে রেল সুরক্ষা বাহিনী, জিআরপি ব্যবস্থা নিতে পারে। এমনকী, গ্রেফতারও করতে পারে। রেলের সিনিয়র এরিয়া ম্যানেজারের আশ্বাস, শীঘ্রই কড়া পদক্ষেপ হবে।
তত ক্ষণ ওই কড়া গন্ধ আর দৃশ্যের মধ্যে কামরায় পা ফেলতেও ভয় পাচ্ছেন অনেকে।

KOLKATA: Darjeeling Mail -the most prestigious train that connects Kolkata to north Bengal -is all set to follow a different route soon.
Instead of crossing the Vivekananda Bridge and passing Burdwan and Bolpur, the train will move through Barrackpore, Krishnagore and Murshidabad to Malda.This will not only shorten the distance between Sealdah and New Jalpaiguri and bring down travel time, the move will also decongest the busy stretch between Burdwan and Malda.
"The Murshidabad-Azimgunj link is expected to be commissioned by the end of December, 2017. There were problems with land acquisition but

we have received tremendous help from the state government.Once this happens, we plan to run trains like Darjeeling Mail through Murshidabad.These trains will then pass through Azimgunj towards Malda, from where they will take the existing route to New Jalpaiguri," Eastern Railway (ER) general manager Ghanshyam Singh told TOI.
ER is yet to calculate how much time will be saved along the new route. Along the exis ting route, the distance between Sealdah and New Jalpaiguri is nearly 573 km. According to officials, the train's path will be shortened by nearly 21km once it passes through Murshidabad. According to Singh, travel time should come down by at least 30 minutes.
"However, that is not the most important thing. The existing route is extremely congested and we want to reduce the load. Secondly , we want people from Murshidabad and surrounding areas to benefit. Now, with no rail connectivity to Malda, they have to travel all the way to Sealdah if they wish to catch a train to north Bengal. Once this route is opened, they can directly travel to north Bengal and the northeastern states. This will also open up an alternate route to north Bengal," the GM added.
According to him, ER has embarked on a path of capacity enhancement. In 2016-17, tracks of 80 km length have been doubled and third lines will be commissioned along 27 km. An additional 100 km is approaching readiness. "We have also commissioned 194 km of electrification this year. This will further speed up operations and reduce diesel consumption. From August 2016 to February 2017, we have already saved Rs 25 crore," Singh added.

रेलवे के सबसे व्यस्त रेलमार्ग दिल्ली-हावड़ा पर बीते कई माह से हर पल खतरा मंडरा रहा है। ट्रैक की सही ढंग से देखरेख न होने से कई जगह स्लीपर ध्वस्त नजर आते हैं तो काफी संख्या में पटरी और स्लीपर को जोड़े रखने वाली पैनड्राल क्लिप गायब हैं। कई जगह तो पटरी भी बदलने योग्य है। इस मार्ग पर 24 घंटे में करीब 250 से 300 ट्रेनें आवागमन करती हैं, कई हादसे होने के बावजूद इस ओर कोई तवज्जो नहीं दी जा रही है। दिल्ली-हावड़ा रेलवे ट्रैक महत्वपूर्ण ट्रैक माना जाता है। एक ओर रेलवे प्रशासन इस पर बुलेट ट्रेन दौड़ाने की तैयारी कर रहा है, वहीं दूसरी ओर जसवंतनगर से इकदिल रेलवे स्टेशन के मध्य कई जगह स्लीपर टूटे हुए हैं, काफी संख्या में पैनड्राल गायब हैं। इसके बावजूद ट्रैक पर 130 किमी की स्पीड से सुपर फास्ट ट्रेनें दौड़ रही हैं। ट्रेन गुजरने पर ट्रैक हिचकोले लेता है। ट्रैक...

रेल गाड़ियों को कुमारधुबी में ठहराव होना चाहिए। लेकिन, पूर्व रेलवे और आसनसोल रेल मंडल जानबूझकर उपेक्षा कर रहा है। रेल मंत्री ने पूरे मामले को मेंबर ट्रैफिक को देखने का निर्देश दिया। इसके बाद वहां उपस्थित मेंबर ट्रैफिक के साथ सांसद पीएन सिंह ने विस्तार से बातचीत की। उन्होंने कुमारधुबी रेलवे स्टेशन पर सात रेल गाड़ियों के ठहराव के लिए एक सूची भी सौंपी। सूची में रांची-दुमका इंटरसिटी, रांची-हावड़ा इंटरसिटी, धनबाद-पटना इंटरसिटी, रांची-जयनगर एक्सप्रेस, रांची-भागलपुर एक्सप्रेस, रांची-कामाख्या एक्सप्रेस का नाम शामिल है। मेंबर ट्रैफिक ने सातों रेल गाड़ियों के ठहराव के संबंध में विचार-विमर्श कर निर्णय लेने का आश्वासन दिया। शुक्रवार को दार्जिलिंग में रेल मंत्री सुरेश प्रभु ने हावड़ा-यशवंतपुर हमसफर एक्सप्रेस का ऑनलाइन शुभारंभ किया। इस कार्यक्रम में सांसद पीएन सिंह भी शामिल थे।

So weird na ki Kmme is 20 km from Asn and 40km from Dhn but an additional halt hardly makes any difference to running status or punctuality. From image 8.36 hr delay at Asn maintained at DHN too despite an extra halt. But 795km stretch of Mgs-Ndls with only 1 halt and train piles on delay. So halt has been given rightly so as it makes no difference in run. But presence of halts in dreaded section becomes cause of more unnecessary delay. No train would know this better than Poorva jo halts ke karan usse ek do station pehle hi non stop train ka shikar ban jati hai.

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.

ভারতীয় রেলওয়ে সমস্ত ট্রেনে রিজার্ভেশন এগেনস্ট ক্যানসেলেশন বা RAC বার্থের সংখ্যা বাড়ানোর সিদ্ধান্ত নিয়েছে। যাতে ট্রেনে একসঙ্গে আরও বহু যাত্রী যাত্রা করতে পারেন, সেই কারণেই RAC বার্থের সংখ্যা বাড়ানোর সিদ্ধান্ত গ্রহণ। ১৭ জানুয়ারি থেকে সমস্ত ট্রেনে RAC বার্থের সংখ্যা বেড়ে যাবে। মাস ছয়েকের এই পরীক্ষামূলক নিয়মে বাড়ানো হচ্ছে RAC বার্থের সংখ্যা।
স্লিপার ক্লাসে RAC বার্থের সংখ্যা ৫টি থেকে বাড়িয়ে ৭টি।
