মহীশাসন রুটে আরও একটি ট্রেন আজ থেকে যাত্রা শুরু করল। ভারত-বাংলাদেশ আন্তর্জাতিক সীমান্তের কাঁটাতার ঘেঁষা এই স্টেশনে এখন প্রতি দিন দু’জোড়া ট্রেন শিলচর থেকে যাতায়াত করছে। বাদ শুধু রবিবার। সে দিন করিমগঞ্জ-মহীশাসন রুটে কোনও ট্রেন চলছে না। নতুন আরও এক জোড়া ট্রেনের জেরে শিলচর-করিমগঞ্জের মধ্যে সকালে একটি ট্রেনের যে দাবি উঠেছিল, তা মিটবে বলে দাবি রেল সূত্রের।
শিলচরের স্টেশন ম্যানেজার বিপ্লব দাস জানিয়েছেন, এত দিন শুধু বিকেল ৩টে ২৫ মিনিটে শিলচর থেকে ট্রেন ছাড়ত মহীশাসনের দিকে। আজ থেকে নতুন ট্রেনটি যাচ্ছে সকাল ৬টায়। করিমগঞ্জ হয়ে অবশ্য শিলচর-আগরতলা ট্রেন প্রতি দিন সকাল ৮টায় রওনা হয়। যাত্রীদের চাহিদায় যেমন এই রুটে ট্রেন বাড়ানো হল, তেমনই যাত্রী মেলে না বলে জিরিবাম রুটে ট্রেন চলাচল এক দিন কমানো হয়েছে। তিন দিনের জায়গায় এখন তা চলবে

শুধু সোম ও শুক্রবার। লক্ষ্মীপুর মহকুমার উপর দিয়ে মণিপুরের একমাত্র স্টেশন জিরিবামে যাতায়াত করলেও এই রুটে স্টেশনগুলি জনবহুল এলাকা থেকে অনেক দূরে। লক্ষ্মীপুর মহকুমার যে কোনও স্টেশনে যেতে যে পরিমাণ অটো ভাড়া লাগে, তার চেয়ে কম টাকায় সড়কপথে শিলচরে যাতায়াত সেরে নেওয়া যায়। তবে বিপ্লববাবু আশাবাদী, এই ট্রেনেরও চাহিদা বাড়বে। জিরিবাম থেকে টুপুল পর্যন্ত নতুন রেললাইন নির্মাণের কাজ চলছে। পরে যাবে ইম্ফল পর্যন্ত। সে সময় মণিপুর এই রুটেই রেললাইনে বাইরের সঙ্গে যুক্ত হবে।
এ দিকে, দক্ষিণী ট্রেনের সংযোগ ঘটাতে শিলচর-গুয়াহাটি একটি বিশেষ ট্রেন চালানো হচ্ছে। তাতে বাতানুকূল ৩, স্লিপার ১৩, চেয়ার কার ১, সাধারণ ১ এবং এসএলআর ২টি কামরা থাকছে। সপ্তাহে শুধু শনিবার রাত ৮টা ৫০ মিনিটে শিলচর থেকে ছাড়ে ট্রেনটি। রেল সূত্রে খবর, ওই ট্রেনেও চাহিদামতো যাত্রী হচ্ছে না। পরীক্ষামূলক বা বিশেষ ট্রেন হওয়ায় যাত্রী না হওয়ার ব্যাপারটি সুখকর নয় বলেই জানান বিপ্লববাবু। তবে যাত্রীদের বক্তব্য, ট্রেনটি সুপারফাস্ট বলে ভাড়া অত্যন্ত বেশি। এ ছাড়া, দক্ষিণী সংযোগী না করে ট্রেনটিকে সরাসরি শিলচর পর্যন্ত চালালেই যাত্রী বেড়ে যাবে। সরাসরি চেন্নাই হয়ে তিরুবনন্তপুরম যাওয়ার ট্রেন পেলে এই অঞ্চলের মানুষেরও বিরাট উপকার হবে বলে অভিমত সকলের।

BADARPUR, Sept 14 - The reported decision of the Railway Ministry to set up the rail division at Silchar instead of Badarpur has evoked strong reactions in this railway town.
Last year also Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu had said that the new Railway Division will be set up at Silchar, and not Badarpur. His announcement then also was strongly condemned by all sections of people of Badarpur, various political parties like the Congress, BJP, Socialist Party, SUCI, CPM, CPI (M), AIUDF as also the Railway Unions, Railway employees and the members of the Badarpur Rail Division Implementation Demand Committee unanimously.
In

a strongly-worded statement, the general secretary of the Badarpur Rail Division Implementation Demand Committee (BRDIDC), Sukumar Ghosh told this mediaperson that the people of Badarpur will not tolerate the indiscreet decision of the Ministry of Railways as also the recent comments on the subject, as the demand for Badarpur Rail Division has matured into a ‘mass demand’, having been first voiced way back in 1988, from when the movement also began. Sukumar Ghosh very clearly narrated the entire picture of the importance, necessity, reasonableness as well as the logic of the Badarpur Rail Division. He warned that in support of the setting up of a full-fledged Railway Division at Badarpur, the movement will not only continue but will now be more vigorous than earlier.
Ghosh said, “since 1988, our rail division movement has been non-violent. But now, it may change, if the Railways and the Central Government deprive Badarpur of its logical as well as reasonable claim.” Ghosh said that Badarpur is the appropriate, proper and the most suitable place for setting up a full-fledged railway division and there are many reasons for the claim, which are already in the public domain. He also said that Silchar is not at all a suitable place for a rail division. The essential requirements for the rail division are not present at Silchar and it will not be profitable for the Ministry of Railways to purchase vast lands for the purpose.
Ghosh alleged that a group of people along with some politicians of Barak Valley, who don’t want a rail division be set up at Badarpur, are misguiding and misleading the Railway officials and Union Ministers by giving wrong information, regarding Badarpur Rail Division.
Meanwhile, an urgent meeting was also held at Badarpur, under the presidentship of the BRDIDC president, Chandan Sen recently, where all the representatives of the various political parties were present. All the speakers vehemently criticised the decision of the Ministry of Railways, which has not yet been withdrawn. The meeting also sent a memorandum to the Minister of State for Railways, Rajen Gohain, mentioning the reasons in support of a full-fledged railway division at Badarpur.

SILCHAR, Sept 13 - If the words of Dr Rajdeep Roy, member of Passenger Amenities Committee (PAC) of the Indian Railways are to be believed, the Silchar Railway Station will soon be upgraded into a full-fledged Railway Division.
“In a recent development, the Indian Railways has decided to upgrade three railway stations into railway divisions and the Silchar Railway Station features in the list. The work to upgrade the station will soon commence,” Roy said.
He was quick to add that as a member to the PAC, he has also urged the general

manager of NF Railways to start intercity express trains between Silchar to Agartala and Guwahati.
“We have received a positive nod from Chahatey Ram, General Manager of NF Railways towards introducing the two intercity express trains,” Roy informed.
Further, the Silchar Railway Station which is an ‘A’ category station, will have a host of new amenities soon. In the words of Roy, the station will have a Coach Indication Board (CIB) and Train Indication Board (TIB), which has already been sanctioned.
Moreover, besides installation of four water-vending machines, expansion of PP shed and a well-managed parking facility, there will also be a food plaza at the Silchar Railway Station, he said. It may be mentioned that around 3,935 passengers travel from Silchar every day.
On the other hand, Roy said that NF Railway has approved Hailakandi Railway Station to be a three-line crossing ‘B’ grade station. “This decision was taken on August 26 and the station is being maintained in its original position,” he informed.
The PAC member also informed that they had visited several railway stations, including Guwahati and Kamakhya and offered suggestions for improvement of passenger amenities.
Also, he said that both the Indian Railways and the Department of Tourism are focusing on development of tourism facilities at the Guwahati, Kamakhya and New Jalpaiguri railway stations within the next two years.

GUWAHATI, July 14 - After a gap of almost two months, Barak Valley, Tripura and Mizoram have been reconnected with the rest of the country by the railway system with restoration of passenger train services in the Lumding-Badarpur hill section.
NFR PRFO Nripen Bhattacharya said that in view of fitness of track between Mahur and Migrendisa for running of passenger services, the railways has decided to resume running of passenger trains in the section starting from yesterday.
It may be mentioned here that running of goods trains had been resumed in the section

on July 7.
Train services in the Lumding-Badarpur hill section was suspended from May 16 due to landslide and heavy rainfall in different places of the section.
With the latest decision, NFR has decided that the Train no. 55615 Guwahati-Silchar Fast Passenger and the Train no. 55616 Silchar-Guwahati Fast Passenger will run on their scheduled path and time.
Similarly, services of the Train no. 25657/25658 Sealdah-Silchar-Sealdah Kanchanjanga Express have also been restarted as per the old schedule.
In the past two months, commuters to and from Barak Valley, Tripura and Mizoram were badly affected by disruption of passenger train services in the Lumding-Badarpur section and many of them had complained about having to fork out huge sums for passenger fares.
Students from the Brahmaputra Valley and other States, who were seeking admission at NIT Silchar, also suffered on this account.

#Note: 300-metre long diversion constructed at Migrendisa in Dima Hasao to bypass areas showing lateral soil movement.
---------------------------------------------

Mizoram and parts of Manipur which are linked to the railway network of India through the NFR line.
Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) chief public relations officer (CPRO) Pranav Jyoti Sharma said a new 300-metre track was laid to divert the route slightly at the problematic spot in Migrendisa in Dima Hasao district of southern Assam.
“After due deliberation and consultation with geo-technical experts, it was decided to construct a 300 metre long diverted portion by-passing the areas showing lateral movements. The work for construction of the diverted portion was taken up on June 17. After that, ballast cushion was laid and track linking was done. During the period about 4 lakh cubic metre of earth was cut down and one culvert was constructed. About 500 men worked round the clock with 17 heavy earth cutting machines, 30 dumpers, 2 excavators, one rock breaker despite frequent rain. Geo-synthetic materials have been used in consultation with geo-technical experts to cover the locations indicating presence of argillaceous soil,” a press release from NF Railways said. “After running goods train on the route on experimental basis for a few days, we will decide on resuming normal passenger train service,” he said.
Huge landslides triggered by downpours damaged the NFR track on April 27 last. Goods train traffic was restored on May 6, only to be disrupted again from May 13 onwards. That cut off southern Assam, Tripura, Mizoram and parts of Manipur from the railway network.
The NFR converted the 110 years old metre gauge line to broad gauge last year in south Assam, Tripura, Manipur and Mizoram. However, poor soil conditions are hampering running of trains on certain sections.
The Guwahati-Silchar rail route is the lifeline for southern Assam comprising Cachar, Karimganj, Hailakandi, Dima Hasao districts, and the mountainous states of Tripura, Manipur and Mizoram. The region is dependent on the rail line for supply of foodgrains, essential commodities, fertilizers, petroleum products, construction materials and other goods.
