Good news for commuters travelling between Andheri and Borivli — Western Railway (WR)is set to introduce seven new local train services on the section in October. Two local trains will operate during the morning peak hours and two during the evening.
In May, WR officials had asked the commission of railway safety (CRS) for permission to operate local trains on the suburban track avoiding fifth line between Andheri and Borivli. Until then, this line was reserved for long-distance trains.
The CRS granted them permission immediately. Earlier, both the Central and WR authorities had decided
to induct 80 new services after a new timetable was created. “The line between Andheri and Borivli was used for only mail express trains. Now, we will be able to have more services, which will help decongest the section,” said Mukul Jain, divisional railway manager, WR.

Resources of all kinds have to be used optimally by IR, and the 5th line of WR (BCT-BVI) is a great asset which need to be better utilised.
Once 5th & 6th line (BCT-BVI) are complete, we can expect many new local trains and long distance with higher speed & punctuality.

Mumbai: Commuters, who have been waiting for the much-delayed Andheri-Goregaon extension of Harbour line, can finally hope that it would be operational by November as a trial run was successfully held on Saturday.
The trial run conducted by officials of the Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MRVC) between Andheri and Goregaon was successful, and all the technical issues were cleared.
The Andheri-Goregaon extension on Harbour line is a part of the Mumbai Urban Transport Project (MUTP) II. Around five to seven lakh commuters will benefit from the extension daily, and it will
also help to decongest other stations such Andheri and Vile Parle that have recorded one of the highest footfall on the Western Railway (WR). The trail was conducted by running an engine between the Harbour's Andheri and Goregaon section as the final technical parameters were completed.
The engine ran without any glitch, and one of the major doubts of the alignment of the railway tracks was finally resolved. An MRVC official said, “The trial is important as the ground on which the tracks have been laid must be in exact accordance with what the state and railways have agreed upon.”
He also said, “This section has to be integrated with the already existing WR line. It is a historic accomplishment as it was completed in a space-starved city like Mumbai.”
The trail was conducted in the presence of officials from three railway bodies — CR, WR and MVRC. The success of the project was met with unbridled jubilation. An impromptu bhoomipoojan was also held.
The MRVC's chief managing director (CMD), Prabhat Sahai said, "We conducted a trial of the line on Saturday evening, and after it's success, we are confident that the services on this section will be operationally by November end." "The line will be now inspected by the commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS), who will examine whether it is adhering to all the parameters set by the Indian Railways. Mr Sahai also added, "We have given ourselves enough cushion time by conducting the trail now, so after the CRS' inspection the line will be operational in November."
The MRVC is the executing body of all MUTP projects approved by the Indian Railways.

रेलवे ने अनरिजर्व्ड टिकटिंग ऐप (यूटीएस) के जरिए टिकटों की बिक्री को बढ़ावा देने के लिए अब जिओ-टैगिंग हटाने का फैसला किया है। जिओ-टैगिंग के कारण अभी यात्रियों को स्टेशन के 30 मीटर दायरे के बाहर जाकर मोबाइल से टिकट बुक करनी होती थी। अप्रैल 2015 रेलवे ने यूटीएस मोबाइल ऐप लॉन्च की थी। तीन साल बाद भी यात्रियों ने इस ऐप में अधिक रुचि नहीं दिखाई। इस ऐप के जरिए साधारण टिकट बुकिंग और सीजन टिकट भी बुक किया जा सकता है। जानकारों के अनुसार जिओ-टैगिंग के कारण यह ऐप इतनी लोकप्रिय नहीं हुई।
में ही मिल जाएगा टिकट!
सेंट्रल रेलवे के एक वरिष्ठ अधिकारी के अनुसार, 'जिओ-टैगिंग हटाने के लिए मुंबई के बाहर किसी अन्य स्टेशन पर परीक्षण किया जा रहा है। इसके अंतर्गत यात्री स्टेशन परिसर के अंतर्गत ही मोबाइल से टिकट बुक कर सकेंगे।' इस तरह से टिकट बुक कराने के लिए यूटीएस मोबाइल टिकट ऐप डाउनलोड करना पड़ता है। मोबाइल नंबर रजिस्टर कराने के बाद आर-वॉलेट में कम से कम 100 रुपये और अधिकतम 5000 रुपये जमा रखना पड़ता है। ऐप को प्लेस्टोर से डाउनलोड किया जा सकता है।
अधिकारियों का तर्क है कि यदि किसी व्यक्ति को बेटिकट यात्रा करनी होगी, तो वो किसी भी नियम या बंधन को ताक पर रखकर बेटिकट यात्रा कर लेगा। टिकट इतने सस्ते हैं और यदि प्लैटफॉर्म पर खड़े-खड़े टिकट खरीदी जा सकती हो, तो बहुत कम ही लोग ऐसे होंगे जो टिकट नहीं खरीदेंगे। मुंबई में अधिकांश लोग लंबी कतारों की वजह से बेटिकट यात्रा करते हैं।
