దిల్లీ: వంటగ్యాస్‌ రాయితీలను స్వచ్ఛందంగా వదులుకోండని ఇచ్చిన పిలుపు విజయవంతం కావడంతో ఆ నినాదాన్ని మరో రంగానికి విస్తరింపజేయాలని కేంద్ర ప్రభుత్వం ఆలోచిస్తోంది. రైలు టిక్కెట్లపై ఇస్తున్న రాయితీలను కూడా ‘స్వచ్ఛందంగా వదులుకోండ’ (గివ్‌ ఇట్‌ అప్‌)ని విజ్ఞప్తి చేయనుంది.
రైల్వే శాఖ ఇందుకు సంబంధించిన కార్యక్రమాన్ని వచ్చే నెలలో ప్రకటించనుంది. టిక్కెట్‌ ధరను తక్కువగా నిర్ణయించి ఆ మేరకు రాయితీలు ఇవ్వడం ద్వారా ఏటా రూ.30,000 కోట్ల నష్టాలను భరిస్తోంది. ఇందులో టిక్కెట్‌ ధరపై కన్సెషన్‌ రూపంలో మళ్లీ రాయితీ ఇస్తోంది. దీని విలువ రూ.1600 కోట్లు. రాయితీలను స్వచ్ఛందంగా వదులుకొనేందుకు రెండు శ్లాబులను ప్రతిపాదించింది. 50% రాయితీని వదులుకోవడం, 100% రాయితీని వదులుకోవడం అనే వర్గీకరణ చేయనుంది. ఆన్‌లైన్‌ బుకింగ్‌, కౌంటర్లలోని బుకింగ్‌కూ ఈ నిబంధన వర్తిస్తుంది. వృద్ధుల టిక్కెట్లపై ఏటా రూ.1300 కోట్ల రాయితీ ఇస్తోంది. ఈ రాయితీని పూర్తిగా వదిలేస్తారా, సగం వదిలేస్తారా అన్న స్వేచ్ఛను వారికే విడచిపెట్టనుంది. టిక్కెట్ల జారీపై నూతన సాఫ్ట్‌వేర్‌ అమల్లోకి వచ్చిన తరువాత ఇది అమలు కానుంది. చాలా వర్గాల వారికి టిక్కెట్లపై రాయితీలు ఇస్తున్నా, అందులో ప్రధాన వాటా
వృద్ధులదే

కావడం గమనార్హం. ప్రస్తుతం మహిళలకు 50 శాతం, పురుషులకు 40 శాతం రాయితీ ఇస్తోంది. ఇంతవరకు రాయితీని పూర్తిగా తీసుకుంటారా, లేదంటే వదులుకుంటారా అన్న ఐచ్ఛికం మాత్రమే ఉండేది. ఇప్పుడు సగం రాయితీని వదులుకొనే అవకాశం కల్పించనుంది.
రాయితీ భారాన్ని ప్రయాణికులకు తెలియజేయాలన్న ఉద్దేశంతో కంప్యూటర్‌ ద్వారా ప్రింటు వేసే టిక్కెట్లపై ‘భారతీయ రైల్వేలు మొత్తం ప్రయాణ ఖర్చులో సగటున 57% మాత్రమే వసూలు చేస్తున్నాయని, 43 శాతం రాయితీ ఇస్తోందని ముద్రిస్తోంది. ఉదాహరణకు దిల్లీ నుంచి ముంబయి వెళ్లే గోల్డెన్‌ టెంపుల్‌ సూపర్‌ఫాస్ట్‌ ఎక్స్‌ప్రెస్‌ రైలులో 3ఎసీ టిక్కెట్‌ను ప్రస్తుతం రూ.1,570 వసూలు చేస్తున్నారు. నిజానికి దానికయ్యే ఖర్చు రూ.2,750. ఇదే రైలులో 2ఏసీ టిక్కెట్‌ రూ.3,990 ఉండాల్సి ఉండగా, రూ.2,275 మాత్రమే వసూలు చేస్తున్నారు.
ఈ ఆలోచన ఎందుకు వచ్చిందంటే..
జమ్ము రాజధాని ఎక్స్‌ప్రెస్‌లో ఇటీవల జమ్ముకు చెందిన ఓ వ్యక్తి జమ్ము నుంచి దిల్లీకి ప్రయాణించారు. కంప్యూటర్‌ ద్వారా వచ్చిన టిక్కెట్‌పై 43 శాతం రాయితీని రైల్వే భరిస్తోందని ముంద్రించి ఉంది. దాంతో ఆ రాయితీ సొమ్ము రూ.950 అవుతుందని లెక్కించి ఆ మేరకు ఇండియన్‌ రైల్వేస్‌ కేటరింగ్‌ అండ్‌ టూరిజం కార్పొరేషన్‌ (ఐఆర్‌సీటీసీ)కి చెక్కు పంపారు. భవిష్యత్తులో ఇలాంటి రాయితీలు ఉపయోగించుకోబోమంటూ ఓ లేఖ కూడా పంపారు. ప్రయాణికుల నుంచి సొమ్ము తీసుకునేందుకు ఎటువంటి నిబంధన లేకపోవడంతో ఆ సంస్థ ఆ చెక్కును తిప్పిపంపించింది. వంటగ్యాస్‌ రాయితీని వదులుకున్నట్టుగా రైలు టిక్కెట్ల రాయితీని కూడా వదులుకోవాలంటూ సాధారణ ప్రయాణికులందరికీ విజ్ఞప్తి చేయబోమని రైల్వే అధికార ప్రతినిధి అనిల్‌ సక్సేనా స్పష్టం చేశారు.

KARIMNAGAR/SECUNDERABAD: The long cherished dream of the people of erstwhile Nizambad and Karimnagar districts became a reality on Saturday, when a train was flagged off by railway minister Suresh Prabhu from Secunderabad station. The railway line has been laid from Nizamabad to Pedapalli.
BJP national general secretary P Muralidhar Rao welcomed the train at Karimnagar railway station. It may be recalled that in 1993, the then Prime Minister PV Narsimha Rao laid a foundation stone for Peddapalli-Nizamabad railway line. But the works got delayed due to lack of funds.

Hyderabad: Come Saturday, the long-awaited 178-km Peddapalli-Nizamabad broad gauge rail link a dream that stretched over seven decades is finally here to happen.
In fact, the project was first mooted by the Nizam government in the mid-1940s. However, after the accession of the Princely State of Hyderabad, the proposal never saw the light of the day until 1993.
Thanks to the then prime minister PV Narasimha Rao for taking initiative to make the long-pending demand of the locals a reality.

spite of this, the project works has always competed with the pace of a snail as the successive governments continued to allocate meagre funds for the rail line works.
The initial estimated cost of the rail line was Rs 926 crore but due to the inordinate delay it now reportedly crossed Rs 1,500 crore. In the first phase, the works on Peddapalli-Karimnagar line covering a distance of 35 km were completed in 2001 and a passenger train was introduced. In the second phase, the works between Karimnagar and Lingampet (Jagtial district) (47 km) were completed in 2007. Thereafter, it was a long wait for the people in the region.
Recently, the rail service was extended to Morthad. Speaking to The Hans India, the South Central Railway CPRO M Uma Shankar Kumar said “Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will commission the Morthad-Nizamabad railway line via remote link from Hyderabad on March 25.
The existing aero-dynamic diesel-electric multiple unit (DEMU) train that shuttles between Peddapalli and Lingampet is extended to Nizamabad.” Simultaneously a programme will be held at Nizamabad, he added.
It’s learnt that Minister for Agriculture Pocharam Srinivas Reddy, MP K Kavitha, Rajya Sabha member D Srinivas and a host of people representatives will take part in the locally arranged programme.
Nizamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry president C Guru Prasad said “This is a dream come true for the locals. The link will reduce a considerable distance between north Indian States and Nizamabad.
As of now, shipment of goods is being done through Moula Ali railway station. Now the new line will provides a direct link to the grand trunk corridor. With the transportation tariffs coming down, it enables a competitive edge to the traders.”
Further, he stressed the need for improving facilities in the Nizamabad railway station. In all, the train will stop in 11 stations between Nizamabad and Peddapalli – Kothapalli, Gangadhara, Sultanabad, Mamidipalli, Anksapur, Medipalli, Mallyala, Jagtial, Metpally, Morthad and Armoor.
