Trains stopped till 16 AUG
Train services to the Northeast from the rest of the country have been stopped till Wednesday in view of the flood in
Assam, West Bengal and Bihar.
“The Railway Board has decided to cancel all incoming trains from various parts of the country towards NE Region, which were to reach either Katihar or Malda town till 10 am of August 16, 2017,” Northeast Frontier Railway chief public relations officer (CPRO) Pranav Jyoti Sharma said in a statement.
“Heavy rainfall in the last 72 hours in West Bengal, Bihar, Assam and other NE states has resulted in railway operations being severely hampered as rain water has affected railway tracks at several places in Katihar and Alipurduar Division of NF Railway,” Sharma said.
In view of the flood situation, 11 outgoing trains have been cancelled by NF Railway today, Sharma said, adding four other trains have been short-terminated at various locations, he added.
Yesterday, 22 trains were cancelled, while 14 others were stopped at various places as tracks were flooded.
“While many rivers in Alipurduar and Katihar divisions are in spate, NF Railway authorities are keeping a close watch and continuously monitoring the situation of nearby railway bridges and tracks, taking all precautionary measures for safe train running,” the CPRO said.
Emergency control is being manned by senior officials at the headquarter and divisions, Sharma said, adding railway tracks were affected in as many as 12 locations initially, of which seven have been repaired and restored.
The authorities have opened additional counters at many stations, which are working round-the-clock to extend refund to passengers, he said.
Sharma informed that internal train connectivity from New Jalpaiguri to Guwahati, Guwahati to Dibrugarh and Murkongselek continued as usual. Trains on these routes are plying as per their normal schedule.

KOHIMA: Highlighting the poor railway services in the northeast, Nagaland MP Neiphiu Rio said Dimapur station should be turned into a smart station and the Dimapur-Tizit project should be prioritized.
Addressing a Parliament discussion recently, Rio said Dimapur was the highest revenue generating station of the northeast after Guwahati and catered to upper Assam, the Army, paramilitary forces and the state of Manipur.
Rio also asked the railway ministry to take up the Dimapur-Tizit new line project soon. The tracks between Dimapur and Tizit cover 257km and touch five districts - Dimapur, Wokha,
Mokokchung, Longleng and Mon. The project was approved by the Railway Board in 2013-14.

KOHIMA: Reports of Dimapur Railway Station being placed under Tinsukia division headquarters has baffled Nagaland chief minister TR Zeliang. He has shot off a letter to railway minister Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu, urging him to upgrade it to a division.
Dimapur is one of the oldest and most important railway stations in the northeast catering to the requirements of Nagaland, Manipur and large parts of Karbi Anglong, the CM said on Monday. He added that in terms of revenue generation, the station is the second highest under NFR, only next to Guwahati. The CM argued that there are six railway divisions in the northeast region at present and Dimapur deserves to be one of them.
at the same time, stressed that the distance between Tinsukia and Dimapur was about 250km and for all practical purposes, Lumding, 100km away, was a more convenient option. "The reported relocation of Dimapur to Tinsukia Division HQ will cause great inconvenience to people," the chief minister said.

With the expansion of the Silchar- Lumding section of the North Frontier Railway(NFR), Dimapur station will no longer remain under Lumding junction.
According to sources in the NFR Guwahati, Dimapur station will henceforth operate under the administrative control of Tinsukia Junction.
The distance from Dimapur to Tinsukia is around 265 kilometers while the distance from Dimapur to Lumding is 69 kilometers.That means, those from Dimapur who have to make complaints or related work will have to travel 265 kilometers to Tinsukia.
Dimapur station under Tinsukia Junction may not be a big issue but when it involves the second highest revenue earning station of NFR; Dimapur should have long been upgraded particularly so when it will become a junction after it will be linked with Tuli and Naginimora and also in the next decade, with Zubza.
The politics behind the step-motherly treatment to Dimapur is certainly a matter that needs serious attention of the state government, especially the chief minister and the two MPs.
It may be recalled, that Nagaland Post had first reported about the direction being taken to deprive Dimapur of its rising pre-eminence particularly arising from the fact that it is the second highest revenue earning station in the north east under the North Frontier Railways(NFR).
This newspaper had reported that railway offences under Dimapur station that used to be tried under the court of the judicial magistrate Dimapur, have been transferred to Tinsukia district court.
Local lawyers at Tinsukia have opposed the appearance of any advocate from Dimapur to represent their client(s) at the Tinsukia court . A senior legal official also disclosed, that after the transfer of judicial jurisdiction to Tinsukia, it has become an unwritten rule that all lawyers representing their clients involving offences under railways, will be only from Tinsukia.
As reported on several occasions, railway authorities in Assam have placed state interests above that of the paying passengers. It happened with the Jan Shatabdi Express that was introduced to Dimapur by then railway minister Ram Vilas Paswan during 1996.
It was meant to link state capitals. Since Dimapur being the only railhead of Nagaland, the Jan Shatabdi was to run between Guwahati to Dimapur. Within a short span, Jan Shatabdi extended gradually to Furkating, Mariani and till Jorhat. Today it is known as Guwahati-Jorhat Jan Shatabdi Express.
Though Dimapur is the second highest revenue earning station after Guwahati for the NFR, not even one long distance train has been introduced from Dimapur. The only train starting from Dimapur is Nagaland Express from Dimapur-Kamakhya .
Whereas 19 long and medium distance trains commence from Dibrugarh and another 21 long and medium distance trains commence from Tinsukia.
In terms of passenger amenities also, Dimapur is well below expectations. It has only one covered platform (No.1) while the other platform (No.2) is still without a roof for many years. Passengers boarding or detraining during monsoon get drenched at this particular ‘roofless platform’.

Further, authorities at NFR do not seem to be bothered about removing encroachment in the form of religious places (allegedly started by former employees). Improving the facilities at Dimapur Railway Station requires space and if the authorities don’t respond, then there will be no scope of making Dimapur a model station.

Prabhu lays foundation stone of rail project in Nagaland
I Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu laid the foundation stone of the Dhansiri (Dimapur)-Zubza broad gauge line at the Dimapur railway station on Monday.
“More than geography, it is important to bring together different aspirations of the people and fulfil the long-cherished dream of the citizens by connecting the capital of Nagaland with Delhi,” Mr. Prabhu said in his address.
comprehensive plan on how to meet the aspirations of the people of the North East is in the process of finalisation and very soon it will be presented to all the Chief Ministers concerned,” he said.
He assured the gathering that the present project would be completed in 2019.
Speaking on the occasion, Nagaland Governor P.B. Acharya regretted that despite the abundance of rich natural beauty and resources, the State did not have proper connectivity. “Though a Governor, I find it difficult to reach even Delhi when others reach U.S.A. in 12-13 hours,” he said.
Chief Minister T.R. Zeliang termed the day a red letter day in the history of Nagaland as the railway project would connect the commercial hub of Dimapur with the State capital
