Rajasthan under North Western Railway (NWR) has re ceived 26% higher budgetary allocation in the Budget announced on Wednesday compared to last year. This has encouraged officials who are now optimistic to complete all ongoing and new projects for the modernization of the railways in the NWR division.
This is probably the highest growth in the budgetary allocation given for railways in state in the country.
The number of new trains to originate from Rajasthan has not yet been announced but officials hinted that the state will get trains under two circuits--tourism
and pilgrimage. "These trains will be of two class-passengers and super luxury ones to suit the needs of tra vellers of all category of passengers.
Rajasthan has immense potential in both circuits due to the presence of religious sites and tourist attractions. The route and name of these trains will be announced shortly," said Anil Singhal, general manager, NWR. Upbeat over the higher budge tary allocation, Tarun Jain, chief public relations officer (CPRO) told media in a press conference that the allocation would accelerate the work under new line, gauge conversion, doubling and manning of railway crossings.
Jain informed that one of the prime objectives of the Budget was safety. "Other than the budgetary allocation, NWR like other 15 divisions to get additional grant for strengthening safety mechanism," said Jain.
The funds allocated for NWR in 2015-16 was Rs 874 crore and shot up to Rs 1,405 crores in 2016-17. "The actual figures of budget 2017-18 will be shared once the print version of Budget reaches to us by February 3," said Jain. The NWR has also announced the performance of NWR of the current financial year from April 1 till December 2016.
The report said that accidents have reduced by 72.7% while the division has maintained 95% of arrivals and departures on time. The officials have claimed that NWR ranked in 4th in terms of on time performance.
The NWR has made a small growth in the revenue generation in passenger load by registering a growth of 4% till December. The revenue generation in goods category is behind 10% from the previous year.
"The total earning made by railways was Rs 5017.66 crores. It includes Rs 1435 crores while in goods it is Rs 3298 crores," said Jain, who is hoping that earnings from the goods will register growth by the end of March.

increase in budget is good but on overall basis it is still seems to be very less as compared to allocation to other zones.
Flat growth in passenger earnings is probably due to no new services getting added during the last year.
Without increase in trains/frequency we cannot expect rise in income.
However, dip in freight earnings is the real cause of concern.

Allocation made last year to NWR was hopelessly low as compared to other zones. Even after impressive increase of 26% this year, the figure of 1405 crores is very less considering the size of NWR network. Since NWR mainly serves Rajasthan, a BJP ruled state, such negligence is surprising.
This is in stark contrast from previous regimes where opposition ruled states were targeted by central govt. This is a clear indication that funds are mostly allocated based on the requirements of IR and not on political considerations.

"increase in budget is good but on overall basis it is still seems to be very less as compared to allocation to other zones."
Every zone is different, each has its own budget requirements, the comparison with other zones for budget allocations is absolutely nonsensical. Its like comparing Apples with grapes..
"Without increase in trains/frequency we cannot expect rise in income."
improving infrastructure where will you run more trains, in SKY? Its like you want more LC's to be created than demanding a Flyover over an existing busiest one.

Rise in income is expected from the practice of introducing more and more special trains as well as augmentation of coaches in existing trains.

JAISALMER: 10 coaches of Ranikhet Express derailed near Thayat Hamira railway station, 16 km from Jaisalmer. Railway chief safety officer and expert engineers have started an investigation into the incident.
The involvement of ISI in the accident is being investigated, as it has been witnessed that the three ghastly train accidents near Kanpur involving deaths of more than 160 passengers within just 45 days span is due to the involvement of ISI and Pakistani agencies to derail the process of nation in all the possible ways. It is to be mentioned that a large number of ISI sleepers and agents are present not only Jaisalmer but across the country now, and their role cannot be ruled out that easily.
the incident has cut off Jaisalmer from the rest of the country. Railway has cancelled around a dozen trains coming from Bikaner, Jodhpur, Delhi and Jaipur to Jaisalmer. Work is on at war-footing to repair the tracks. By Sunday, the the traffic is expected to normalise.
Arrival of Palace on Wheels in Jaisalmer on Sunday is also doubtful. Ranikhet Express that went from Jaisalmer to Kath Godam on Friday at 11.15pm got derailed between Jaisalmer and Thayat Hamira station. All passengers are safe. On getting information, administration, police and rail way officers reached the spot.
BSF DIG Amit Lodha, who was also travelling in the train, said that around 11.15 pm on Friday near Hamira village, the train stopped suddenly and there was sand inside the train. Passengers got down the train and found that it had derailed. Due to sand, any major accident was averted as the train after derailing got buried in sand and did not overturn.
On getting information, district collector Matadeen Sharma, SP Gaurav Yadav and others reached the spot.
Officers faced a lot of problem in reaching the spot as there is no road leading to the spot. Officers took care of the passengers and made arrangements to send them back to Jaisalmer through cars and jeeps.Ambulances were also pressed into service.
Guard Kewal Chand said that the train was moving approximately at a speed at 100 kmph. When it began jolting, the driver realised that there was some problem and applied emergency brakes. As a result, 10 coaches of the 24-coach train got derailed.
Jodhpur division spokesperson Gopal Sharma said the work to repair the tracks was going on at war-footing.The relief accidental train rea ched at 9am on Saturday and started removing the coaches by crane.
He said at present Jaisalmer is cut off from rail connectivity. Around one dozen trains to Jaisalmer have been cancelled and traffic is expected to resume by Saturday night or Sunday morning.
Jodhpur Divisional Railway Manager Rahul Goyal has ordered an investigation into the accident. Officers have reached the spot and a videography of the spot is being done, especially the tracks which broke into pieces. He said that the role ISI cannot be ruled out. Possibility of the track breaking due to cold is also there. We are investigating the incident from all angles.
Security forces on high alert
According to a tweet from the ministry of railways, the ministry has directed to investigate the case from all angles in view of the recent subversive activities. Railway security forces have been kept on high alert. Citizens are also requested to report any suspicious activity.
