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.

Both NTPC and Railways would identify and formulate projects for beautification of Kokrajhar station and NF Railway will engage agencies to carry out the work within the overall budget of Rs 50 lakh.
Progress of the project would be reviewed periodically after every three months.
NTPC, a Maharatna company, is a Central Public Sector Undertaking under the Union Ministry of Power engaged in generation and sale of electricity to State-owned power distribution companies and State Electricity Boards in India.
NTPC has taken up a policy of adopting railway stations, schools, hospitals and heritage sites for cleanliness under its CSR of Development Action Plan last year.
Railway Ministry has also formulated a guideline for execution of identified environmental sustainability works, cleanliness and sanitation of stations and provision of certain passenger amenities through CSR of corporate and public sector undertakings.
GUWAHATI, Oct 24 - Passengers were adversely hit today as train services in the State were affected due to the rail roko agitation by the All Bodo Students’ Union (ABSU).
“Normal running of trains got affected due to the rail roko agitation by ABSU in places like Kokrajhar and Basugaon under Alipurduar Division and Udalguri under Rangiya Division of Northeast Frontier Railway. As a result of the rail roko, many Up and Down trains had to be controlled at various stations. All the passenger-carrying trains were controlled at stations where basic amenities like water and food items are available,” Chief Public Relations Officer (CPRO) of Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) Pranav Jyoti Sharma said in a statement.
said that Railway authority at various stations ensured that medical and catering facilities are available at all stations where the effected trains were controlled.
“Senior officials were manning the Control Rooms set up at Alipurduar, Rangiya and Maligaon,” Sharma said.
He said that rail roko agitation, which started at 4.45 am at various places, was withdrawn at 2.45 pm.
“After withdrawal of the agitation, all vital parameters of railway tracks were checked and security clearance was received at 3.15 pm and various long-distance trains which were controlled at various stations all over NFR, started their onward movement immediately,” said the NFR CPRO.
Among the Up trains controlled at various stations were 12345 Howrah-Guwahati Saraighat Express, 15645 Lokmanya Tilak-Guwahati Express, 15635 Okha-Guwahati Express, 15654 Jammu Tawai-Guwahati Express, 14056 Delhi-Dibrugarh Brahmaputra Mail, 12551 Yasvantpur-Kamakhya AC Express, 15959 Howrah-Dibrugarh Kamrup Express, 12517 Kolkata-Guwahati Garib Rath Express, 12436 New Delhi-Dibrugarh Rajdhani Express, 12424 New Delhi-Dibrugarh Rajdhani Express, 12506 Anand Vihar-Guwahati North East Express, and 15614 Murkongselek-Kamakhya Intercity Express.
The Down trains which had to be controlled were 12423 Dibrugarh-New Delhi Rajdhani Express, 12510 Guwahati-Bangalore Express, 15620 Kamakhya-Gaya Express, 15960 Dibrugarh-Howrah Kamrup Express, 12505 Guwahati-Anand Vihar North East Express, 15636 Guwahati-Okha Express, 14055 Dibrugarh-Delhi Brahmaputra Mail, 15930 Dibrugarh-Chennai Egmore Express, and 05942 Dibrugarh-Kolkata Special Express respectively.
Our Udalguri Correspondent adds: Over 30,000 activists of All Bodo Students’ Union (ABSU) in association with activists of People’s Joint Action Committee for Bodoland Movement (PJACBM) and NDFB (P) today rocked Udalguri Railway Station with their pre-scheduled 12- hour railway blockade demanding early solution to the long-pending Bodoland State and political rights to the Boros living outside the proposed Bodoland area.
The railway blockade got under way from 5 am till 3 pm. During the blockade hours, the NF Railway suspended running of passenger and intercity express in between Dekargaon, Tezpur via Rangapara Junction to Kamakhya Junction via Rangiya Junction till 3 pm.
The ABSU-PJACBM-NDFB-P leaflet on the occasion said that the railway blockade carried out at Udalguri and Basugaon railway stations were for resolving the Boro people’s demand for creating Bodoland State immediately, to ensure political rights to the Boro people living outside the proposed Bodoland area, to protect, preserve and safeguard the identity of the Boro people with language, culture and tradition by creating a Bodoland State and to give rights and justice to enjoy the provisions of the Constitution of India in order to live with dignity and honour.
The programme at Udalguri Railway Station was addressed by Lawrence Islari, general secretary of ABSU, Dipen Boro, vice president of ABSU, Rakesh Boro, chief convenor of PJACBM, M Gerema, Home Secretary of NDFB(P) , Rodeep Kumar Daimary, former MCLA of BTC, Brojen Marak, organising secretary of Garo Students’ Union and one representative each from the BTAD region committee of Assam Gorkha Sanmilan, Bar

BONGAIGAON/GUWAHATI, May 23 – Nineteen people were injured when the 55753 Alipurduar-Guwahati Sifung Passenger train derailed at Champapara between Salakati in Kokrajhar district and Basugaon in Chirang district, around 5.10 am today. Among the injured were two drivers of the train.
The train, which had 14 coaches including two goods bogies, had left Alipurduar Junction in North Bengal at 2.45 am. When it reached Champapara – 15 km from Kokrajhar Station – it hit a tree that was lying on the railway track. After ripping the tree apart, the engine rammed into the railings of the nearby Champamati bridge and plunged into the river.
loco driver Manik Ghose (49) and his assistant Jitendra Kumar (32), however, jumped out of the cabin of the engine and in the process, received injuries to their limbs and chests.
“The train, which was running at 100km/hour speed, hit the tree lying on the track and derailed because of the curved track,” said a running staff of the train at New Bongaigaon.
Ramen Barman (35), a resident of Champapara who witnessed the mishap, said, “I saw the train hitting the tree on the track. The train then derailed and its engine plunged into the river. Railway security forces arrived on the spot and we, the local people, rushed to the rescue of the injured passengers.”
NF Railway CPRO Pranav Jyoti Sharma said several passenger trains have been cancelled. They include the New Jalpaiguri-Dekargaon Passenger, Fakiragram-Kamakhya Passenger, New Jalpaiguri-New Coochbehar Special, Dhubri-Fakiragram Passenger, Guwahati-Alipurduar Junction Passenger, Kamakhya-Fakiragram Passenger, Silghat-Dhubri Rajyarani Express, New Coochbehar-New Jalpaiguri Special and Kamakhya-Alipurduar Intercity Express. The Fakiragram-Dhubri Passenger scheduled for tomorrow has also been cancelled. However, no long-distance train has been cancelled, Sharma said.
The NFR has activated accident helpline numbers in different locations, including Guwahati (0361-2731621, 2731622, 2731623), New Coochbehar (03582-224162, 241265, 241266), Kokrajhar (03661-271734, 271735, 271736), Alipurduar Junction (03564-270870, 270871, 253498), Kamakhya (0361-2670086), and Lumding (03674-263126, 263120, 263526).
