The government's pet project of bullet trains is gaining momentum. The High Speed Rail Corporation (HSRC), which has been conducting feasibility studies for several bullet train projects, has submitted a final feasibility report for Delhi-Amritsar project and draft report for Delhi-Kolkata corridor to the Railways ministry.

HSRC is working with various consultants from different countries. It is likely to submit all the feasibility reports to the ministry by year-end. The railways has already formed a company, National High Speed Rail Corporation, for Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project
Below is the list of high-speed corridors. Check if your station falls in any of these:
Delhi-Kolkata
The 1,474 km corridor will have 11 stations: Greater Noida, Aligarh, Lucknow, Sultanpur, Jaunpur, Varanasi, Buxar, Patna, Dhanbad, Asansol, and Burdwan. The distance will be covered in 5.54 hours. HSRC has submitted a draft final report to the ministry. It will submit the final report by October this year after incorporating ministry's suggestions. The work is likely to start by 2021.
Delhi-Mumbai
This is an extension of Mumbai-Ahmedabad corridor. The stations falling between Delhi and Mumbai are: Gurgaon, Jaipur, Udaipur, Baroda and Surat.
Delhi-Mumbai
This is an extension of Mumbai-Ahmedabad corridor. The stations falling between Delhi and Mumbai are: Gurgaon, Jaipur, Udaipur, Baroda and Surat.
Mumbai-Nagpur
The final report for this project is expected by October. There are four stations on this route: Nasik, Aurangabad, Akola and Amrawati.
Delhi-Amritsar
This will have three stations: Chandigarh, Panipat and Ambala. The train will cover 458 km in 2:30 hours, around four hours less than the current time taken by express trains.

The term ‘anti-national’ has found its way into one of the official press releases issued by the Indian Railways. Pune’s Divisional Railway Manager B K Dadabhoy used it to describe the actions of three women, whose only offence was being part of a protest group that held a train for 45 minutes.
On Monday morning, around 100 people participated in a protest demanding the Railway authorities to operate the Deccan Queen from platform number one, as has been the case for several decades until recently. Now, the train departs from platform number five due to “operational compulsions”. This has upset the Queen’s regular passengers, and they have been demanding that it depart from Platform No. 1, like in the old days.

protesters resorted to pulling the chain in their bid to stop the train from leaving the platform. The Railway Protection Force (RPF) identified three women, all of them government servants aged between 50 to 55, travelling to Mumbai from Pune every weekday for work, and produced them before a magistrate.
“Such anti-national activities won’t be tolerated at any cost and action would be initiated as per legal provisions. The commuters are requested not to take law in their own hands and co-operate with the administration in seamless plying of the trains,” Dadabhoy was quoted as saying in a press note issued through the public relations office of Pune Division.

According to me, demand by passengers are right.
From last 75 years, it was departing from PF 1.
The main thing is more than 50% commuters are daily travelers which are leaving from Pune attending office in Mumbai and coming back to Pune in the night.
If the train departs from PF 1, they can easily catch it even though they reached station little

Twitter grouse to Rail Ministry prompts policeman to single man out for bag search, interrogation; he writes fresh plaint, tagging Suresh Prabhu
Rajat Mital was travelling by the Hyderabad–CST Mumbai train on Saturday and, while passing through the Daund railway station, he noticed several unauthorised vendors crowding into his coach. They harassed the passengers, bullying them into buying their food products. Irked by their nagging, Mital shot off a tweet to the Railway Ministry.
Mital tweeted, “@RailMinIndia too many unauthorised vendors in AC coach of 17032. No security of luggage. No police in

the train. It is ridiculous.” Little did he know that at the very next stop, Pune railway station, he would be accosted by a Railway Protection Force (RPF) official, interrogated and his baggage searched without any rhyme or reason. Fed up of such ill treatment, Mital complained about the episode to railway minister Suresh Prabhu through his Twitter handle.
A shocked Mital, who works for a pharmaceutical company and has to travel frequently for that, told Pune Mirror, “I was going to Mumbai in the AC two-tier coach — B2. When the train was passing through Daund railway station, many unauthorised vendors carrying food items and tea entered our coach, forcing passengers to buy their products. Irritated by that, I immediately complained to the Indian Railway Ministry through my Twitter handle.”
Naturally, the railway ministry escalated the issue to the Pune railway division twitter handle and asked for Mital’s PNR number. “I was hoping that some policemen or railway ticket checker would come and take action on these illegal vendors in the coach, but nothing happened. By then, the train reached the Pune railway station around 9 am. So, I got down to purchase some food and was standing on the platform as the train hadn’t got the green light to get going. Suddenly, a person in civil dress came out of our coach looking for someone. He came to me and asked my name, berth number and said he wanted to check my luggage. He said he was from the RPF, so I went inside and showed him my entire luggage. Despite repeatedly asking him the reason for such an impromptu search, he maintained that it was a routine check. But, he specifically targeted me in the entire coach and checked all my stuff, pulling them out one by one. No one else’s luggage was searched in the entire coach. After he was done, he went out and mingled with the crowd. I was so stunned by this experience that I began doubting whether he was really an RPF personnel or not,” rued Mital.
Infuriated over the incident, he again took to his Twitter handle, this time complaining directly to railway minister Prabhu about his ordeal. “@sureshprabhu @drmpune on above complaint I was harassed by police, checking my baggage. Only I was in entire coach,” wrote Mital.
A perplexed Mital added, “Why did that person come in search of me in particular, and why did he only interrogate me and search only my luggage is my question to the railway administration. Curiously, no action was taken on the vendors, which was my original complaint. I am going to take up this issue till the ministry level as I was mentally harassed by the railway administration and police during my journey. I followed that policeman after he got off the train, but he disappeared into the crowd.”
When Mirror contacted Pune divisional railway manager B K Dadabhoy, he said, “We have forwarded the matter to the concerned department of RPF’s Pune division and an inquiry will be done accordingly.” Speaking about the issue, RPF’s Pune division deputy commissioner L B Singh assured, “I will get a detailed report of this Twitter complaint lodged by passenger Mital and will also check with my police officials about what action was taken on his original complaint of unauthorised vendors. Also, I will personally check which RPF official went and checked his luggage. Only after getting proper details of the case will we take further action on whoever is responsible.”
█ Why did that person come in search of me in particular, and why did he only interrogate me and search only my luggage is my question to the railways. Curiously, no action was taken on the vendors, which was my original complaint

अभी तक यही कहा जाता था कि लालू यादव, नीतीश कुमार और रामबिलास पासवान जब रेलमंत्री रहे तो उन्होंने बिहार पर खास कृपा बरसाई और वहां के लिए खूब ट्रेनें चलाईं. यानी बिहार का रेलमंत्री बिहार पर मेहरबान. पर अब यही बात वर्तमान रेलमंत्री सुरेश प्रभु भी सिद्ध कर रहे हैं. आंकड़े गवाही दे रहे हैं कि उन्होंने महाराष्ट्र पर मेहरबानी दिखाई. प्रभु खुद भी महाराष्ट्र के हैं.
रेलमंत्री सुरेश प्रभु के बारे में कहा जाता था कि वो राजनीतिक व्यक्ति नहीं हैं इसलिए उनके फ़ैसले राजनीति से प्रभावित नहीं होंगे. लेकिन भारतीय रेल के आंकड़े कुछ और कहानी बयां करते हैं. सुरेश प्रभु महाराष्ट्र से ताल्लुक रखते हैं. आंकड़े बताते हैं कि इस बजट सत्र में उन्होंने कुल 16 नई ट्रेनें

चलाई हैं और उनमें आधी यानि 8 ट्रेनें महाराष्ट्र को मिली हैं.
ये आंकड़े मई 2017 तक के हैं. यानि इस साल केवल अप्रैल और मई के महीने में ही महाराष्ट्र को 16 में से 8 नई ट्रेनें दी गई हैं. वहीं पिछले साल जो 86 नई ट्रेनें चलाई गईं उनमें 10 महाराष्ट्र को मिलीं और क़रीब 25 ट्रेनें चुनावी राज्य उत्तर प्रदेश को. यानि पिछले साल दो राज्यों को 35 ट्रेनें मिलीं और बाक़ी 26 राज्यों के हिस्से में इक्का-दुक्का ट्रेनें आईं.
इसी तरह से साल 2015-16 में कुल 66 ट्रेनें चलाई गईं. इनमें महाराष्ट्र और उत्तर प्रदेश को 25 ट्रेनें दी गईं. वहीं साल 2014-15 की बात करें तो इस साल 111 नई ट्रेनें भारतीय रेल ने चलाईं. इनमें 45 ट्रेनें महज़ दो राज्यों महाराष्ट्र और उत्तर प्रदेश को दी गईं.

भारतीय रेलवे के 23 स्टेशन अब निजी कंपनियों के हाथों बेच दिए जायेंगे। यहां की साफ-सफाई से लेकर विज्ञापन और अन्य सभी तरह के कामकाज अब निजी कंपनियां देखेंगी। रेलवे के जिम्मे अब सिर्फ ट्रेन चलाना, टिकट काटना और पार्सल करने का काम ही होगा।
इन 23 स्टेशनों में लोकमान्य तिलक, पुणे, ठाणे, विशाखापत्तनम, हावड़ा, इलाहाबाद, कानपुर सेंट्रल, उदयपुर सिटी, कामख्या, जम्मूतवी, फरीदाबाद, दिल्ली, विजयवाड़ा, सिकंदराबाद, रांची, बेंगलुरु कैंट, यशवंतपुर, चेन्नई सेंट्रल, कालीकट, भोपाल, इंदौर, मुंबई सेंट्रल, बांद्रा टर्मिनल और बोरीवली के स्टेशन शामिल हैं।
दरअसल इन 23 स्टेशनों को निजी कंपनियां
...
more...
अपने हाथ में ही रखेंगी। वहां निर्धारित राशि में यात्रियों के लिए आधुनिक सुविधाओं के साथ स्टेशनों को नए कलेवर में तैयार किया जाएगा। इसके लिए स्टेशनों की अहमियत के आधार पर वहां विकास कार्य की राशि तय कर दी गयी है। विकास कार्य करने वाली कंपनियों के पास उस स्टेशन से विज्ञापन और अन्य स्रोतों से आने (टिकट और पार्सल को छोड़कर) वाली आय का मालिकाना हक 45 वर्षों के लिए होगा।
आपको बता दें कि इन स्टेशनों में रेलवे ने सबसे ज्यादा कीमत हावड़ा स्टेशन की रखी है। हावड़ा को सबसे ज्यादा 400 करोड़ और उसके बाद चेन्नई सेंट्रल स्टेशन को 350 करोड़ रुपए से संवारा जाएगा। रेलवे के मुताबिक, निजी निवेश से इन स्टेशनों की सेवाएं विश्वस्तरीय हो जाएंगी। निजी हाथों में जाने से यात्री सुविधाएं बेहतर और प्रभावी हो जाएंगी। फिलहाल स्टेशन से होने वाली आमदनी में कंपनी और रेलवे की हिस्सेदारी अभी तय नहीं हो पाई है। पर शायद कुल आमदनी का आधा-आधा या फिर निजी सेक्टर को 67 व रेलवे को 33 फीसदी का लाभ देने पर सहमति बन सकती है।
वैसे रेलवे अधिकारियों का अनुमान है कि स्टेशन की व्यवस्थाएं, खाना-पीना, पार्सल, सफाई, रिटायरिंग रूम का काम निजी हाथों में जाने के बाद रेलवे स्टॉफ पर हर महीने खर्च होने वाले 70 करोड़ रुपए का भार अब खत्म हो जाएगा। इस निजीकरण से करीब 2000 रेलवे कर्मचारियों की नौकरी चली जाएगी जो अभी स्टेशन के अलग-अलग विभागों में काम करते हैं। केवल इतना ही नहीं, उन्हें दूसरी जगह पर भी भेजा जा सकता है। इसी के साथ रेलवे संसाधन और सुविधाओं पर खर्च करने वाली राशि भी अब बच जाएगी।
