Jul 26 2017 (17:12)   Will Nagpur Metro meet Jaipur’s fate?

Jaipur: The Jaipur Metro, which was launched with great fanfare in June 2015, seems to have turned into a white elephant with the operational losses as high as Rs 7.5 lakh per day. Recovering the project cost is at present a distant dream.
The Metro is surviving on the cesses levied by the Rajasthan government on registration of new passenger vehicles and on property deals.
In terms of ridership, the average of the last 25 months is just 22,000 per day against an estimate of 1.25 lakh. The figure has now come down
to 19,000.
Jaipur Metro was the first to be launched in a tier-2 city of the country. Its performance raises a question whether Nagpur Metro will meet the same fate. Jaipur's population, according to the 2011 census, was 30.5 lakh against 26.5 lakh of Nagpur. Mahametro's managing director Brijesh Dixit is, however, confident that his project will be successful.
Jaipur Metro seems to have been launched in a hurry. The length of the corridor at present is only 9.4km with nine stations. It is being extended another 2.6km to take the length to 12km. The phase-II, which is 24km-long and will cost Rs10,000 crore, is another five years away.
At present, the Metro does not connect the airport and the interstate bus terminal. Two main industrial areas of the city are also not connected. There is, however, a Metro station near the main railway station.
Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation Limited (JMRCL), the project agency, did not bother to go for property development before the project became operational. It will take another year before 8,000 sq m commercial space in the Metro stations will be leased out. The development of 19-hectare open land in the city given to JMRCL is further ahead. The Rajasthan government has not gone for transit oriented development (TOD) of Jaipur for the Metro.
JMRCL director (operations) Ashwini Saxena admitted that the Metro was in a bad shape but expressed confidence that ridership would double once the extension of the present corridor is complete. "The extension will cover the main commercial district of the city," he told mediapersons from Nagpur.
Saxena further said that at present, the Metro did not cover the entire city and this would be achieved only when phase-II is completed.The JMRCL official is not downcast due to low ridership of the Metro. "When the first stretch of 8km was started by Delhi Metro, its ridership was just 25,000. The figure for Bengaluru and Chennai Metros was lower than Jaipur. Metro ridership only increases when large parts of the city are covered," he said.
Dixit concurs with Saxena on this point. "Nagpur's corridor length is 39km against 9.4km of Jaipur. If we consider the feeder service, large parts of the city will be covered. The Metro will connect the airport, city bus stand and the two main railway stations with rest of the city. Feeder service will connect the Ganeshpeth bus terminal. Our project will provide major connectivity to industrial areas, health hubs and most educational institutes. This will ensure sufficient ridership. When phase-II is completed, ridership will increase further," he told TOI.The MD further said that JMRCL had not provided enough parking space at the Metro stations, which Mahametro would. "We will introduce a common mobility card right from the beginning. Jaipur Metro is completely dependent on grid power while 65% of our power will come from solar, which is cheaper," he added.
Dixit also said that JMRCL had delayed execution of phase-II. "We are already preparing the detailed project report (DPR) of our second phase," he added.

With due respect to people of these cities, these places like Jaipur, nagpur Or gorakpur should not waste money on metros. These are capital intensive projects and requires huge ridership and non cheap fares to break even. People for these places go to Mumbai, Bangalore Chennai etc and that is where metros would do great. But here metro projects are waste. Yes its a prestige issue for citizens and elected representatives of that city but some sense should prevail.

The railways will increase 3AC coaches in long distance trains to cater to the growing demand for air-conditioned coaches.
Railway data shows that between April 1, 2016 and March 10, 2017, 3AC coaches carried 17 per cent of all passengers in long-distance trains which accounted for 32.60 per cent of all the earnings from passenger fares.
The data shows increasing demand for 3AC class with passenger share rising from 16.69 per cent last year to 17.15 per cent, and passenenger share rising from 16.69 per cent last year to 17.15 per
cent, and passenger earnings increasing from 32.60 per cent last year to 33.65 per cent between April 1, 2016 and March 10, 2017.
Sleeper class carried 59.78 per cent passengers and contributed about 44.78 per cent of passenger earnings. Last year the share of sleeper coaches was over 60 per cent of passengers and 45.94 per cent of earnings.
The predominance of sleeper passengers is showing a downward trend as more and more passengers are opting for 3AC class, said a senior Railway Ministry official.
The official said a decision has been taken to augment 3AC coaches gradually in some long distance trains.

Lol so people travel in 3 AC just to enjoy a difference of 3-4 degrees? If every thing is regulated and controlled and subsidized in the country, it will be in tatters in a few decades. Those who can afford 3 AC will pay and travel. Those who can afford 2AC will travel in that class, those who cant travel in these will travel in sleeper and those who cant travel in sleeper will squeeze himself in general.
According to your logic, I will travel in 3AC but I want cheap tariffs there also. Suggest you to read some basic economics sir.

The crowd was so high in this train that even Ac class was looking like general class. It was heavily crowded. Their was not a inch to move your finger in GS class and in sleeper class in 1 seat 10people were sitting. The whole train was looking as general class train.

Mostly migrant east and north east labourers going to and fro from their work places in south. Also this train is heavily patronized by the military.
