Thiruvananthapuram: Despite an annual increase of 63% and 55% in passenger earnings at Nagercoil Junction and Neyyattinkara railway stations, respectively, over the past five years, the railways is neglecting commuters south of Thiruvananthapuram, it is alleged.
With the increase in earnings, passengers have been demanding more amenities at these two stations, but the railways maintains that the earnings are not sufficient to meet their demands.
According to the Thiruvananthapuram division data, the annual passenger earning at Nagercoil Junction railway station has increased from Rs 28.39 crore to Rs 46.43 crore during 2012-13 to
2016-17. Similarly, Neyyattinkara railway station, a major station with good passenger movement between Thiruvananthapuram Central and Nagercoil railway station, has improved its revenue from Rs 12.89 crore in 2012-13 to Rs 20 crore by 2016-17.
Kanyakumari railway station earned a revenue of Rs 12.52 crore in 2012-13, which hiked to Rs 18.37 crore in 2016-17.
"Our demands are ignored by the railways despite an increase in annual earnings and number of passengers. We need more trains via Madurai route. There had been a hike in revenue in the stations south of Thiruvananthapuram, after the commencement of Nagercoil-Bengaluru daily in 2014. We also need more amenities at the stations," said P Edward Jeni, secretary, Kanyakumari District Railway Users' Association.
While Neyyattinkara and Nagercoil stations at least have proper platforms, minor stations in between, such as Balaramapuram, Parassala and Eraniyal have more worries to share. Not even periodic maintenance is carried out in these stations, parking facilities are bare minimum and there are not even proper toilets, it is alleged.
The passengers are demanding digital coach indication boards, paved platforms, platform shelters, computerized public addressing system, prepaid taxi service, and escalators and elevators at the major stations.
According to senior divisional commercial manager V C Sudheesh, the facilities at each station is provided according to the norms of railways and category of the station.
"The annual revenue of Rs 40 crore, is insufficient to provide all the facilities available at A1 class stations. The average non-fare revenue of the division is Rs 30 crore to Rs 35 crore, including advertising and parcel. At present, stations under Thiruvananthapuram division have more facilities.
The passenger revenue at Thiruvananthapuram division is not sufficient to provide basic amenities to passengers, as the tickets are issued at subsidized rates. It is through sponsorship and financial support from MPs and non-fare revenue that we provide basic amenities at the station," said Sudheesh.

KOCHI: Goods and Services Tax (GST), which was implemented on July 1, brought along with it a wagon full of confusion and apprehensions. The latest to be hit by these apprehensions are those who depend on the railways to travel to and from their places of employment.
With the implementation of GST, the parking fees at the railway stations across the state have gone up by 18 percent, an increase which has completely scrambled the travel expenses of the daily commuters. Commuters now have to shell out more than their train tickets to park their vehicles! The office-goers are now forced to look for alternative parking spaces like the ones run by the Corporation and the private parties.
the steep hike, commuters said the new rates have severely affected their daily budget plans. “I come all the way from Nagercoil. I used to pay an amount of Rs 200 for the monthly parking pass. But last week I was asked to renew my pass and had to shell out Rs 360. The hike won’t affect me much
but there are others who can’t afford to pay more. This is a huge burden on daily commuters,” said Ramesh Babu, a daily commuter.
The worst affected are two-wheeler riders. The minimum parking fee (for up to two hours) has been increased from Rs 2 to Rs 5. The hike in the fee without making any improvement in the facilities has been criticised severely by the commuters and public alike.
“The roof of the parking lot is damaged and leaks. In some places we have to park our vehicles under the trees and in the open. Hence, I can’t understand the purpose behind increasing the fees,” said Renjith Chandran, a software professional.
At Thiruvananthapuram Central Railway Station, which has a parking area of 4,500 sq ft, covered parking is available only for the railway staff and those who come under the premium category. The new parking area also falls under the premium category. In Kochi, at both North and South Railway Stations the vehicles are left at the mercy of the elements.
The new parking rates are - Rs 5 for two-wheelers, Rs 25 for three-wheelers and cars and Rs 120 for bus and mini-bus up to 2 hours. From 2 to 8 hours, the change in rates are Rs 15, 40 and 250 respectively. For 8 to 24 hours, it is Rs 20, Rs 60 and Rs 360. For 24 to 48 hours, it is Rs 50, Rs 150 and 800. For 48 to 72 hours, it is Rs 100, Rs 250 and Rs 1,200. For monthly pass, the rate is Rs 360 for two-wheelers. No monthly pass is issued for four-wheelers.
“If a passenger parks his car for 24-hours, he has to pay Rs 60. But if he collects his car from the lot at the 25th hour, he has to pay Rs 150 as fee. Just look at the huge margin. Isn’t it daylight robbery?”, asked G Mahesh, an SBI staff who travels daily from Kollam.
Even though the circular regarding the raise in parking fee was issued by the Railways, it is the Kudumbashree workers who are bearing the brunt of the commuters’ ire. “We had to bear verbal abuse from the passengers. They pour out their frustrations on us. What can we do about this? The decision to raise the fee was taken by the Railways,” said Ambili, who looks after the parking bay at Thiruvananthapuram Central Railway Station.
குமரியில் இருந்து ஐதராபாத்துக்கு தினசரி சூப்பர்பாஸ்டு ரயில் இயக்கப்படுமா? பயணிகள் கோரிக்கை
தமிழ்நாட்டின் தென்மாவட்ட பகுதிகளிலிருந்து தெலுங்கானாவின் தலைநகரான ஐதராபாத்துக்கு செல்ல நேரடி தினசரி ரயில் வசதி இல்லை திருநெல்வேலி, மதுரை மற்றும் திருச்சி போன்ற நகரங்களிலிருந்து ஆயிரக்கணக்கான பொதுமக்கள் ஐதராபாத்துக்கு வேலைவாய்ப்பு மற்றும் பல்வேறு பணிகள் நிமித்தம் தினசரி சென்று வருகின்றனர். தெலுங்கானா மற்றும் ஆந்திராவிலிருந்து கன்னியாகுமரிக்கு வரும் சுற்றுலா பயணிகளுக்கு நேரடியாக வருவதற்கு எந்த ஒரு தினசரி ரயிலும் இல்லை. தமிழ்நாட்டின் தென்பகுதியிலிருந்து ஐதராபாத்துக்கு செல்ல வேண்டுமனால் காலையில் சென்னை சென்று மாலையில் சென்னையிலிருந்து ஐதராபாத்துக்கு செல்லும் ரயிலில் செல்ல வேண்டும்.
இதனால் பகல் நேரம் முழுவதும் சென்னையில் வீணாகிறது. இதனால் தென் மாவட்ட பயணிகள் மிகுந்த சிரமத்துக்கு ஆளாகின்றனர். நாகர்கோவிலிருந்து காச்சிகுடாவுக்கு வாராந்திர ரயில் கடந்த 2014-ம் ஆண்டு
முதல் இயக்கப்பட்டு வருகிறது. இதைப்போல் மதுரையிலிருந்து காச்சிகுடாவுக்கும் வாராந்திர ரயிலும், ராமேஸ்வரத்திலிருந்து வாராந்திர ரயில் காச்சிகுடா வழியாக இயக்கப்படுகின்றன. ஆனால் சென்னையிலிருந்து ஐதராபாத்துக்கு மூன்று தினசரி ரயில்கள் இயக்கப்படுகிறது.தென்தமிழ்நாட்டிலிருந்து திருப்பதி வெங்கடேஸ்வர பெருமாள் கோவிலுக்கு செல்லும் பக்தர்களின் வசதிக்காக 2000-வது ஆண்டில் நாகர்கோவிலிருந்து திருப்பதிக்கு வாரத்துக்கு இரண்டு நாள் செல்லதக்க வகையில் நாகர்கோவில் - திருப்பதி (16351-16352) ரயில் அறிவிக்கப்பட்டு இயக்கப்பட்டது.
பின்னர் இந்த திருப்பதி ரயில் நாகர்கோவில் - திருப்பதி மும்பை ரயிலாக நீட்டிப்பு செய்து கடந்த 10 வருடங்களாக இயக்கப்பட்டு வந்தது. கடந்த 2013-ம் ஆண்டு அறிவிக்கப்பட்ட ரயில் கால அட்டவணையின் படி இந்த ரயில் தற்போது திருப்பதி செல்லாமல் இயங்கி வருகிறது. எந்த காரணத்துக்காக இந்த ரயில் அறிவிக்கப்பட்டதோ அந்த நோக்கம் நிறைவேறாமல் போனது திருப்பதி செல்லும் பக்தர்களை மிகுந்த வேதனையடைய வைத்துள்ளது. எனவே, குமரியில் இருந்து மதுரை, திருவண்ணாமலை திருப்பதி வழியாக சூப்பர் பாஸ்ட் ரயில் இயக்க வேண்டும் என பயணிகள் கோரிக்கை விடுத்துள்ளனர்.
இந்த வழி தடத்தில் தமிழ்நாட்டில் உள்ள முக்கிய அனைத்து ஆன்மீக தலங்கள் அமைந்துள்ளன என்பது மேலும் சிறப்பம்சம் ஆகும். ஆகவே இந்த வழி தடத்தில் ரயில் இயக்கினால் திருவண்ணாமலை, திருப்பதி போன்ற இடங்களுக்கு செல்லும் ஆன்மீக பக்தர்களுக்கு மிகுந்த வரபிரசாதமாக அமையும். ஆகவே இவ்வாறு அனைத்துவிதமான பயணிகளின் நலன்கருதி கன்னியாகுமரியிலிருந்து திருநெல்வேலி, விருதுநகர், மதுரை, விழுப்புரம், திருவண்ணாமலை, வெல்லூர், காட்பாடி, திருப்பதி வழியாக தெலுங்கானா மாநிலத்தின் தலைநகரான ஐதராபாத்துக்கு தினசரி புதிய சூப்பர்பாஸ்டு ரயில் இயக்க வேண்டும்.
இவ்வாறு புதிய தினசரி ரயில் இயக்க முடியாத நிலையிருந்தால் திருப்பதியிலிருந்து செகந்திராபாத்க்கு வாரத்துக்கு ஐந்துநாள் இயக்கப்பட்டுவரும் பத்மாவதி எக்ஸ்பிரஸ் ரயில் அல்லது சென்னையிலிருந்து ஐதாராபாத்துக்கு இயக்கப்படும் மூன்று தினசரி ரயில்களில் செங்கல்பட்டு காச்சுகுடா ரயிலை மதுரை வழியாக கன்னியாகுமரி வரை நீட்டிப்பு செய்து இயக்க வேண்டும் என்று கோரிக்கை விடுக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. - See more at: click here

* Passengers shocked IRlys rocked
* Suvidha is really a big Suvidha, not for paxs but for IR to loot its paxs, and put them in Duvidha- Either pay through nose or cancel your travel plan.
* As long as persons shall buy Suvidha tickets, IR shall continue to operate them, even 50% occupancy of Suvidha is a big success for IR.
* A
small percentage of last minute paxs earlier used to pay 2 to 3 times the normal ticket price to the touts, but IR has turned out to be shrewder than those touts by charging even more and they very smartly call it Suvidha!!

న్యూఢిల్లీ: ఒకే గమ్యానికి వెళ్లే ఏ రైలులోనైనా సాధారణ టికెట్‌తో కూడా ప్రయాణించొచ్చని భారతీయ రైల్వే పేర్కొంది. 'వికల్ప్‌' పథకం ద్వారా పాసింజర్‌ లేదా ఎక్స్‌ప్రెస్‌ టికెట్లు రిజర్వేషన్‌ చేయించుకున్న ప్రయాణీకులు రైలు మిస్‌ అయితే తర్వాత అదే మార్గంలో అందుబాటులో ఉన్న ఏ రైలులోనైనా ప్రయాణించొచ్చని వెల్లడించింది. ఈ మేరకు మంగళవారం ఓ ప్రకటన విడుదల చేసింది.
రాజధాని, శతాబ్ది, దురంతో, సువిధ ,స్పెషల్‌ రైళ్లలో కూడా ఈ సదుపాయం అందుబాటులో ఉండనుంది. ఇలా సూపర్‌ఫాస్ట్‌ రైళ్లను వినియోగించుకున్నందుకు పాసింజర్ల నుంచి ఎలాంటి ఎక్స్‌ట్రా చార్జీలు వసూలు చేయబోమని చెప్పింది. వచ్చే నెల 1వ తేదీ నుంచి ప్రయాణీకులు ఆయా రైళ్లలో ఖాళీగా ఉన్న బెర్తులను వినియోగించుకోవచ్చని తెలిపింది.
రిజర్వేషన్‌ వెయిటింగ్‌ లిస్టులో ఉన్న పాసింజర్లు కూడా ఆ టికెట్లతో ఖాళీగా ఉన్న రైళ్లలో ప్రయాణించొచ్చని వివరించింది. ఈ
సదుపాయాన్ని వినియోగించుకునేందుకు టికెట్లు బుక్‌ చేసుకునే సమయంలో 'వికల్ప్‌' స్కీంను ఎంచుకోవాలని చెప్పింది. దీంతో టికెట్లు వెయిటింగ్‌ లిస్టులో ఉంటే అదే సమయానికి ఖాళీగా ఉండే రైలు వివరాలు సదరు వ్యక్తి మొబైల్‌కు ముందుగానే వస్తాయని తెలిపింది. కాగా, ఫ్లెక్సీ ఫేర్‌ సిస్టంను ప్రారంభించిన తర్వాత ప్రీమియర్‌ రైళ్లలో సీట్లు ఖాళీగా ఉంటున్నాయి. రైల్వే తాజా నిర్ణయంతో లక్షలాది ప్రయాణీకులు సౌకర్యంగా ప్రయాణించేందుకు వీలు కలుగుతుంది.
