1910 के दशक के आखिरी सालों में एक व्यंग्य स्केचबुक का प्रकाशन गुमनाम तरीके से हुआ था. इसमें लेखक, प्रकाशक का नाम-पता दर्ज नहीं था. इस स्केचबुक का शीर्षक था- ‘कूचपरवानयपुर स्वदेशी रेलवे’.

रेलवे स्टेशन पर अस्त-व्यस्त माहौल और ट्रेनों के लेट होने के बार बोरियत भारत में आम बात है. लेकिन अगर ऐसा हो कि आपको स्टेशन पर मॉल, मल्टीप्लेक्स में मूवी देखने को मिल जाये तो कैसा रहेगा. साथ ही शानदार सोफे पर wifi के जरिये ट्विटर, फेसबुक चलाने का आनंद भी मिल जाये तो बात ही कुछ और होगी.
जी हाँ, ये सब मुमकिन हो सकता है और रेलवे इसके लिए इंतजाम कर रहा है. लेकिन इसके लिए रेलवे को अब निजी कंपनियों को रेलवे का ठेका देना होगा.

स्टेशन होंगे ऑनलाइन नीलाम:
भारत के 23 रेलवे स्टेशन अब ऑनलाइन नीलाम होंगे.
इस नीलामी में यूपी के दो बड़े रेलवे स्टेशन कानपुर सेंट्रल और इलाहाबाद जंक्शन भी हैं.
भारतीय रेलवे अब छवि सुधारने के लिए रेलवे स्टेशनों की नीलामी करने जा रहा है.
इस नीलामी के लिए सभी स्टेशनों की एक बेसिक कीमत निर्धारित की गई है.
कानपुर सेंट्रल की कीमत 200 करोड़ रखी गई है.
जबकि इलाहाबाद जंक्शन की कीमत 150 करोड़ रूपये रखी गई है.
ये नीलामी ऑनलाइन प्रक्रिया के तहत संपन्न होगी.
30 जून को होगा मालिक का फैसला:
28 जून को इन सभी स्टेशनों की नीलामी की प्रक्रिया शुरू हो जाएगी.
45 साल के लिए इन सभी स्टेशन को निजी कंपनी के हाथ सौंप दिया जायेगा.
30 जून को स्टेशन के मालिक का फैसला अधिक कीमत के आधार पर कर दिया जायेगा.
रेलवे सिर्फ सुरक्षा, टिकट बेचने और ट्रेन के परिचालन की जिम्मेदारी संभालेगा.
इसके अतिरिक्त निजी कंपनी गार्ड भी उपलब्ध कराएगी.
शोपिंग मॉल, मल्टीप्लेक्स आदि इन सभी स्टेशन पर बनाये जाएँगे.
किसी भी प्रकार की पारंपरिक विरासत से छेड़छाड़ नहीं की जाएगी.
स्टेशन पर फ़ूड स्टाल, पांचचारा होटल, रिटायरिंग रूम और प्ले एरिया विकसित किये जायेंगे.

जो 23 स्टेशन नीलामी में शामिल किये जायेंगे, उनमें बेंगलुरु छावनी, यशवंतपुर, चेन्नई सेंट्रल, रांची, उदयपुर सिटी, इंदौर, विशाखापट्टनम, हावड़ा, कामाख्या, फरीदाबाद, जम्मूतवी, सिकंदराबाद, विजयवाड़ा, भुवनेश्वर, कानपुर सेंट्रल, इलाहाबाद जंक्शन और जयपुर स्टेशन शामिल हैं।

A feud is simmering between public sector steel units SAIL and RINL as the former is unwilling to let go of its status as the sole supplier of forged wheels to the Indian Railways. SAIL’s objection to Vizag-based RINL becoming a co-supplier to the railways is notwithstanding the fact that the latter is already setting up a Rs 1,600-crore forged wheel unit at Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh, backed by an assured off-take deal signed with the national transporter in 2014.
SAIL has a forged wheel plant at Durgapur in West Bengal with an annual capacity of 72,000 units, which is expandable to 1,00,000 units with a minor investment. This, it believes, would meet the entire projected needs of the railways by

2020-21. The 1,00,000-units RINL plant is being set up on land given by the railways and it is likely to be operational by September 2018. The plant’s capacity could potentially be doubled to 2,00,000 units in the future.
The Indian Railways has a projected requirement of 72,200 wheels in 2017-18, which can go up to 1,04,500 units by 2020-21 and further to 1,56,000 wheels by 2026-27. Currently, the railways buys 48,000 wheels from SAIL, and imports the remaining. SAIL is not operating its Durgapur facility for forged wheel at full capacity. The railways’ demand for forged wheels for LHB coaches is gradually shifting to cast wheels and thus, demand for such wheels may not go up much in the future. The prevailing and projected demand-supply scenario has prompted the steel ministry to intervene in the matter. At a recent tripartite meeting between SAIL, RINL and the railways, steel secretary Aruna Sharma is learnt to have instructed SAIL and RINL to come up with a solution so that neither of them incurs losses due to the addition of such capacities.

New Delhi: The Indian Railways is firming up plans to join hands with Malaysia to redevelop about 20 stations in Tier-II cities across the country.
Aimed at attracting nearly Rs1 lakh crore private investment, the station redevelopment project envisages infrastructure revamp at platforms and circulating areas. It also entails commercial exploitation of station areas for constructing hotels, eateries, multiplexes, shopping malls and office complex among others for the use of developers for a period of 45 years.

of support to transform these not so big cities into business havens and making them India’s fastest growing cities. While cities like Delhi and Mumbai are in Tier-I category, cities such as Faridabad, Cuttack, Amritsar, Jamshedpur, Kochi, Jammu, and Bikaner are considered Tier-II cities.
A long term partnership will be forged with Malaysia on a government-to-government basis for offering about 20 stations to the southeast country, said a senior railway ministry official. Railways have already launched the ambitious project offering about 400 stations to be redeveloped in PPP model envisaging investment of about Rs1 lakh crore.
In the first phase, 23 railway stations, including the iconic Howrah station, Mumbai Central and Chennai Central have been selected for the project which aims to make the best use of the assets of the stations. A meeting was recently held with Malaysian officials where they showed keen interest in the station redevelopment project. While Malaysia is participating in the bidding process for 23 stations, the railways are mulling to offer about 20 stations separately involving about Rs10,000 crore investment on a government-to-government partnership basis, the official added.
The long term partnership scheme in station redevelopment project with Malaysia will be launched after getting Cabinet approval. Other stations being modernised in the first phase include Pune, Thane, Visakhapatnam, Kamakhya, Jammu Tawi, Udaipur City, Secunderabad, Vijaywada, Ranchi, Kozhikode, Yesvantpur, Bangalore Cantt, Bhopal, Bandra Terminus, Borivali and Indore.
Bhopal station has already been awarded to a developer for redevelopment. Railway minister Suresh Prabhu will inaugurate the start of the work at an estimated cost of Rs450 crore involving construction of hotel, hospital, parking lot, office and restaurant at the station premises. The developer will hold the rights for commercial exploitation of the land for a period of 45 years, while ownership of the land would remain with the railways.
