തിരുവനന്തപുരം∙ രാജ്യാന്തര നിലവാരത്തിലേക്ക് ഉയർത്തുമെന്നു പലതവണ പ്രഖ്യാപിച്ച തലസ്ഥാനത്തെ സെൻട്രൽ റെയിൽവേ സ്റ്റേഷൻ പരിമിതികളുടെയും അവഗണനയുടെയും നടുവിൽ. കേന്ദ്ര സർക്കാരിന്റെ റെയിൽവേ സ്റ്റേഷൻ വികസന പദ്ധതിയിൽ സ്റ്റേഷനെ ഉൾപ്പെ‌ടുത്തിയെങ്കിലും വികസനം ഇനിയും അകലെ. മിതമായ നിരക്കിൽ ലഭിച്ചിരുന്ന ഡോർമിറ്ററി സംവിധാനമടക്കം അടച്ചിട്ടാണു യാത്രക്കാരോടുള്ള റെയിൽവേയുടെ അവഗണന. എസി വെയിറ്റിങ് ഹാളിലെ എസി പ്രവർത്തന രഹിതമായിട്ടും നടപടിയില്ല.
സ്വകാര്യ പങ്കാളിത്തതോടെ എ വൺ നിലവാരത്തിലേക്ക് ഉയർത്തുമെന്നാണു പ്രഖ്യാപനമെന്നിരിക്കെ സ്റ്റേഷനിലെ ഒട്ടുമിക്ക അടിസ്ഥാന സൗകര്യങ്ങളും അവതാളത്തിലാണ്. സാധരണക്കാരായ യാത്രക്കാർക്ക് ആശ്രയമായ ഡോർമിറ്ററിയും എസി ഹട്ടും മാസങ്ങളായി പ്രവർത്തിക്കുന്നില്ല. രണ്ട് എസ്കലേറ്റർ സ്ഥാപിച്ചതുമാത്രമാണ് ഏക ആശ്രയം. ഫ്ലാറ്റ്ഫോം വികസനമെ‌ന്ന ആവശ്യത്തിനുമേലും അധികൃതർ കണ്ണടയ്ക്കുന്നു. ഇതര സംസ്ഥാനങ്ങളിൽ പത്തും പതിനൊന്നും പ്ലാറ്റ്ഫോമുകൾ പ്രവർത്തിക്കുമ്പോഴാണ് ഇവിടെ രാജ്യാന്തര നിലവാരം കാത്തുകിടക്കുന്ന സ്റ്റേഷൻ അഞ്ചു പ്ലാറ്റ് ഫോമുകളിലായി ഒതുങ്ങുന്നത്.
ട്രെയിനുകൾ കാത്തുകിടക്കുന്നതു കാരണം പേട്ട, കൊച്ചുവേളി സ്റ്റേഷനുകളിൽ ഏറെ

നേരം ട്രെയിൻ പിടിച്ചിട്ടശേഷമാണു യാത്ര തുടരുന്നത്. നേമം കോച്ച് യാർഡിന്റെ വരവിലാണ് ഇനിയുള്ള പ്രതീക്ഷ. നിലവിലെ കോച്ച് ഡിപ്പോ നേമത്തേക്കു മാറ്റുന്നതോടെ സെൻട്രൽ സ്റ്റേഷനിലെ ഗതാഗത പ്രശ്നങ്ങൾക്കു പരിഹാരമുണ്ടാക്കാനാകും. നേമത്തെ ടെർമിനൽ വരുന്നതോടെ മാത്രമേ തമ്പാനൂരിലെ പ്ലാറ്റ്ഫോമുകളുടെ എണ്ണം ഉയർത്താനാകൂ. ഇപ്പോൾ പലസമയത്തും ഔട്ടറിലാണു ട്രെയിനുകൾ പിടിച്ചിടുന്നത്.
സെൻട്രൽ സ്റ്റേഷനിൽ താമസസൗകര്യത്തിനായി ഒരുക്കിയ മുറികൾ അടച്ചിട്ടതു സംബന്ധിച്ചാണു വ്യാപക പരാതി. സ്റ്റേഷന്റെ മുകളിലത്തെ നിലയിൽ യാത്രക്കാർക്കു വിശ്രമിക്കാനായി ഡോർമെറ്ററി പ്രവർത്തിച്ചിരുന്നു. എന്നാൽ ഈ സംവിധാനം മാസങ്ങളായി അടഞ്ഞുകിടക്കുകയാണ്. ഡോർമിറ്ററിയും എസി ഹട്ടും തുറക്കാത്തതിനു പിന്നിലെ കാരണം വ്യക്തമാക്കാൻ അധികൃതരും തയാറല്ല. സാധാരണക്കാരായ യാത്രക്കാർക്കു തുച്ഛമായ നിരക്കിൽ ലഭിച്ചിരുന്ന മുറികൾ അടച്ചു പൂട്ടിയതിനു പിന്നിൽ ഒത്തുകളിയുണ്ടെന്നാണു ജീവനക്കാരുടെ അടക്കംപറച്ചിൽ. സ്വകാര്യ ലോഡ്ജുകളെ സഹായിക്കാനാണോ ഈ നടപടിയെന്നും ചോദിക്കുന്നവരുണ്ട്.
പൊതുവായ ശുചിമുറിക്കും ബെഡിനും പുറമേ എസി ഹട്ടുകളും ഇവിടെ പ്രവർത്തന രഹിതമായി നിലകൊള്ളുന്നു. ഇത്തരത്തിലൊരു താമസ സൗകര്യം ഇവിടെ ഉണ്ടോ എന്നു ഭൂരിഭാഗം യാത്രക്കാർക്കും അറിയില്ല. ഡോർമിറ്ററി സൗകര്യത്തെ സംബന്ധിച്ച് ആവശ്യത്തിനു പരസ്യബോർഡും പ്രദർ​ശിപ്പിച്ചിട്ടില്ല. എസി ഹട്ടിന്റെ ചില ഭാഗത്തെ ചുമരുകൾ തകർന്ന നിലയിലാണ്. വർഷങ്ങളോളം പഴക്കമുള്ള കെട്ടിടമാണിത്. യാത്രാസൗകര്യം തേടി ആവശ്യത്തിനു യാത്രക്കാർ എത്തുന്നില്ലെന്നും അതിനാൽ അറ്റകുറ്റപണിയുടെ ആവശ്യമില്ലെന്നുമാണു ചിലരുടെ പ്രചാരണം.

న్యూఢిల్లీ: ఒకే గమ్యానికి వెళ్లే ఏ రైలులోనైనా సాధారణ టికెట్‌తో కూడా ప్రయాణించొచ్చని భారతీయ రైల్వే పేర్కొంది. 'వికల్ప్‌' పథకం ద్వారా పాసింజర్‌ లేదా ఎక్స్‌ప్రెస్‌ టికెట్లు రిజర్వేషన్‌ చేయించుకున్న ప్రయాణీకులు రైలు మిస్‌ అయితే తర్వాత అదే మార్గంలో అందుబాటులో ఉన్న ఏ రైలులోనైనా ప్రయాణించొచ్చని వెల్లడించింది. ఈ మేరకు మంగళవారం ఓ ప్రకటన విడుదల చేసింది.
రాజధాని, శతాబ్ది, దురంతో, సువిధ ,స్పెషల్‌ రైళ్లలో కూడా ఈ సదుపాయం అందుబాటులో ఉండనుంది. ఇలా సూపర్‌ఫాస్ట్‌ రైళ్లను వినియోగించుకున్నందుకు పాసింజర్ల నుంచి ఎలాంటి ఎక్స్‌ట్రా చార్జీలు వసూలు చేయబోమని చెప్పింది. వచ్చే నెల 1వ తేదీ నుంచి ప్రయాణీకులు ఆయా రైళ్లలో ఖాళీగా ఉన్న బెర్తులను వినియోగించుకోవచ్చని తెలిపింది.
రిజర్వేషన్‌ వెయిటింగ్‌ లిస్టులో ఉన్న పాసింజర్లు కూడా ఆ టికెట్లతో ఖాళీగా ఉన్న రైళ్లలో ప్రయాణించొచ్చని వివరించింది. ఈ

సదుపాయాన్ని వినియోగించుకునేందుకు టికెట్లు బుక్‌ చేసుకునే సమయంలో 'వికల్ప్‌' స్కీంను ఎంచుకోవాలని చెప్పింది. దీంతో టికెట్లు వెయిటింగ్‌ లిస్టులో ఉంటే అదే సమయానికి ఖాళీగా ఉండే రైలు వివరాలు సదరు వ్యక్తి మొబైల్‌కు ముందుగానే వస్తాయని తెలిపింది. కాగా, ఫ్లెక్సీ ఫేర్‌ సిస్టంను ప్రారంభించిన తర్వాత ప్రీమియర్‌ రైళ్లలో సీట్లు ఖాళీగా ఉంటున్నాయి. రైల్వే తాజా నిర్ణయంతో లక్షలాది ప్రయాణీకులు సౌకర్యంగా ప్రయాణించేందుకు వీలు కలుగుతుంది.

Survey claims 86% of participants support the project
The majority of people in the State support the proposed 430-km high speed railway line (HSR) between Kochuveli in Thiruvananthapuram and Kannur, if a survey conducted in 11 districts is any indication.
The survey held for Kerala High Speed Rail Corporation Limited (KHSRCL), a public limited company floated by the government to execute the project, has found that 86% of the participants supported the project.

survey was conducted using the systematic random methodology by Gurgaon-based Centre for Forecasting & Research (Cfore) between November 23, 2016 and January 14 this year. The findings of the survey that covered 110 Assembly constituencies and the report had been submitted to the KHSRCL, chief executive of Cfore, Premchand Palety, said.
Hassle-free travel
The Rs. 1,27,849-crore project is aimed at making travel hassle-free and at reducing congestion on State roads.
In all, 73% of the respondents were aware of the project and 88% of them approved of it.
Mr. Paelty said 82% of those who were unaware approved of it when the interviewer explained it to them. The approval rating was over 80%.
Reduced travel time
Reducing the time taken to travel across the State and the air pollution and the corridor turning a catalyst for development are the advantages. Those who opposed the project said large-scale acquisition of land and displacement of families would be needed.
13,447 interviewed
A total of 100-120 voters from each Assembly segment in the districts were interviewed. The respondents were randomly selected from the voters’ list using a special software. In all, 13,447 people, one voter from each household, were interviewed.
Through the survey, the authorities are trying to counter the opposition that may come up against land acquisition and dissent against development projects.
As much as 1,155.57 hectares of private land has to be acquired, 3,868 residential/commercial structures relocated, and 36,923 trees felled as per the DPR prepared by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation.
In 45 minutes in Kochi
With trains running at a maximum speed of 300 km per hour, a journey to Kollam will take only 20 minutes, Kochi 45 minutes, Kozhikode 90 minutes, and Kannur 120 minutes. Kollam, Chengannur, Kottayam, Kochi, Thrissur, Valancherry, Kozhikode, and Kannur are the stations proposed.

It is tough to materialise in Kerala. Land acquisition is not at all easy. Lot of objections for the projects are exisitng, especially from those who will lose the land.

Thrust on ongoing rail projects
S. Anil Radhakrishnan
The Hindu
Completion of sanctioned and ongoing railway projects – doubling from Kayamkulam junction via Kottayam and Alappuzha and Angamaly-Sabari Rail – has been given thrust in the Rs. 1,206-crore outlay for rail network in Kerala for 2017-18 in the Union Budget.

the outlay, the ongoing doubling works from Kayamkulam junction via Kottayam and Alappuzha have been given Rs. 313 crore and the Sabari Rail Rs. 213 crore. The two projects have cornered 51.26% of the outlay.
The remaining 48.74% of the outlay has gone for passenger amenities improvement, track renewal, gauge conversion, yard remodelling, signalling and telecommunication, and road safety works in level crossings.
The outlay to the State has seen a 18.92% increase when compared to the Rs. 1,014.06-crore outlay in the Railway budget 2016-17.
The survey for the Thalassery-Mysuru railway line is the only new project from Kerala that has figured in the Pink Book that gives a break-up of the outlay of funds allotted to Railways. The coaching terminal at Nemom aimed at decongesting Thiruvananthapuram Central has failed to make it to Pink Book, despite the groundwork.
The 35-km Guruvayur-Tirunavaya line figures in the capital investment programme to be executed on cost-sharing basis with Kerala through the joint venture company Kerala Rail Development Corporation Ltd.
A sum of Rs. 297.20 crore has been earmarked for eight Road Over Bridges, 13 Road Under Bridges and subways in Thiruvananthapuram and Palakkad divisions. Of Rs. 297.20 crore, the State’s share is Rs. 140.57 crore.
Passenger amenities
Passenger amenities have been given Rs. 25 crore as against the Rs. 20 crore last year. For the doubling of the 85-km Thiruvananthapuram - Kanyakumari railway line, which is already electrified, Rs. 50 crore has been allocated.
Funds have also been earmarked for the completion of the Kozhikode-Mangaluru doubling, stage II at the Kochuveli terminal, one additional pitline and two stabling lines in Ernakulam and rake unloading facilities for 20 BCN wagons at Nilambur road.

While presenting the Economic Survey, an annual report on the economy, on Tuesday, Chief Economic Advisor Arvind Subramanian said that two new methods of data analysis, including a railway passenger data based metric, reveal that Indians are migrating in far larger numbers for economic reasons to other states than they did previously.
In 2001-’11, the rate nearly doubled as compared to the previous decade, rising to 4.5% per annum from 2.4% in 1991-’01, noted the Survey. The acceleration in the rate of migration is particularly high for women – during the 2000s, females migrated at nearly twice the rate of males.
Yet,

in contrast to international migration trends, the free movement of people across states has not led to poorer states with low health outcomes becoming less poor and more healthy, said the Survey.
Migration doubled
The decadal Censuses, of which the last was held in 2011, estimate the annual average number of inter-state migrants in India to be 33 lakh.
The Census defines a migrant as such: “When a person is enumerated in census at a different place than his/her place of birth, she/he is considered a migrant.”
However, the Survey put out new migration figures that are significantly greater than those put out by the Census or any other previous study.
In a chapter on inter-state migration titled India On The Move and Churning: New Evidence, the Survey estimated that between 2001 and 2011, annual inter-state labour mobility averaged at least 50 lakh to 60 lakh people, yielding an inter-state migrant population of about six crores and an inter-district migration as high as eight crores.
It arrived at these estimates using a new methodology called Cohort-based Migration Metric at state and district levels.
The rate of economic migration is double of what it was to prior to the 2000s, finds the Economic Survey.

This was the first time the Survey used origin-destination monthly railway data on unreserved passenger traffic between every pair of stations between 2011-’16 as a proxy for work-related migrant flow.
“This class of travel serves less affluent people, who are more likely to travel for work-related reasons,” noted the Survey.
For the 2011-’16 period, the Economic Survey estimated that nearly 90 lakh people migrated between states annually. The analysis excluded those traveling within 200 km.
A new method of analysis using passenger traffic data showed that metros accounted for the highest inflows for work, followed by industrialised states.

According to the Survey, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and even Kerala are net in-migration states (the rate at which people move in). There was lower in-migration into Maharashtra than before.
Higher out-migration states were Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh. There was lower out-migration in Assam in this period than previous years.
Chandigarh, Delhi, Gurugram in Haryana, Gautam Budh Nagar in western Uttar Pradesh recorded the highest net in-migration. Hamirpur in Himachal Pradesh, Churu and Pali in Rajasthan, Uttarkashi and Chamoli in Uttarakhand, Muzzafranagar and Bijnor in Uttar Pradesh, Darbhanga and Gopalganj in Bihar were among districts with highest net out-migration.
Language did not seem to be a barrier to the movement of people.
The Survey also found that female migration for work is growing at twice the rate of migration by males. This is so even though in the last few years the growth in the female workforce has not happened at a correspondingly fast rate. Between 1991 to 2001, and 2001 to 2011, men giving economic reasons for migration grew from 2.7% to 4%. Among women it increased from 0.4% between 1991 and 2001, to 7.5% between 2001 and 2011.
Inequalities increasing
Though nearly twice the number of persons are migrating for economic opportunities than before, this has not translated into reducing the gap between well-off and underdeveloped states.
In a chapter on health and income, the Survey found that despite overall growth, there “continues to be divergence in India, or an aggravation of regional inequality”.
It noted: “During the 2000s, China posted a convergence rate of nearly 3 percent in income which implies that the poorest province will catch up with half the level of the richest province in 23 years…The evidence so far suggests that in India, catch-up remains elusive.”
The report said that it is unclear why even the free movement of people across porous state borders is not helping reduce inequalities across regions.

Huge tract of land of Gangetic plains from West Bengal to Bihar/ Jharkhand to UP/ Uttaranchal had been agriculturally as well as industrially advanced since independence, but several decades of poor state governance have led made them backward.
A lot of migration from this naturally endowed states to a poorly endowed but much better governed state like Gujrat is an irony. Poor law & order, excessive caste-ism have led to bad politics, poor governance, lower education/literacy, bad economy and poverty.
