New Delhi: MPs Kodikunnil Suresh and A. Sampath have urged union railway minister Suresh Prabhu to abandon the move to hand over a portion of the Thiruvananthapuram railway division to the Madurai division. In a memorandum submitted to the Railway minister Suresh Prabhu, the MPs alleged that the proposal to attach the Nagercoil-Kanyakumari line to the Madurai division would result in downgrading of the Thiruvananthapuram division, as it happened with the Palakkad division when it was bifurcated for creating a new division based in Salem. Sampath pointed out that thhe central government had promised to set up a railway coaching yard at Nemom in the Railway budget six years ago. The land in Pallichal grama panchayat under the possession of the Railway could be uttilized for the purpose, he said. "The commissioning of the Vizhinjam port could lead to a significant increase in goods movements and freight earnings at the Thiruvananthapuram...

division. The proposed move would result in dwindling of revenues for the division," the MP added. Kodikunnil Suresh also demanded that the Punalur-Chenkotta line should be brought under the Thiruvananthapuram division once the ongoing work to convert it into a broad gauge line is completed. Railway officials in Tamil Nadu have been indifferent towards the conversion works on the stretch, he added

Indian Railways is notorious for delay in train services. According to a survey by travel search application Ixigo, the Manduadih-Rameswaram Weekly Express tops the list of latecomer trains, with the highest average delay time of 11.5 hours.
Manduadih is in Uttar Pradesh and the train travels a little more than 2,000 km to Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu. The survey was conducted among the 20-odd million customers of Ixigo. The other worst-performing trains include Himgiri SuperFast (SF) Express from Howrah to Jammu Tawi, with 9.3 hours average delay time, and the Jan Nayak Express between Amritsar in Punjab and Darbhanga in Bihar, with a delay time of 8.9 hours.
The

survey also looked at the favourite railway stations for passengers. Vadodara topped the list, followed by Nagpur and Howrah stations. Among the lowest rated stations were New Delhi, Pune and Kanpur.
In terms of favourite trains, the top three were the Bikaner-Delhi SF Express, Mumbai-Jaisalmer SF Express and the New Delhi Duronto Express. The worst-rated trains were the Patna-Kota Express, Jharkhand Express and Seemanchal Express.
Aloke Bajpai, co-founder and chief executive of Ixigo, said: “This survey takes into account the 200,000 user ratings and reviews on our app. We noted that cleanliness is very important for travellers at railway stations, which is why Tatanagar Junction ranked at the top.”
And, “Rajkot Junction received very positive reviews owing to its high standard of safety, which is every traveller’s paramount concern. Food at railway stations is something most Indian travellers appreciate and Davangere in Karnataka stood out as the top station, serving good food. Travellers rated the Bikaner-Delhi SF Express as the cleanest train and the Ahmedabad-Mumbai Duronto Express as the train serving the best food.”
Ixigo has become one of India’s largest train information apps, with five million monthly active users; it apparently helps 800,000 train travellers every day, from a little more than 200 places, with features such as PNR (passenger name record) prediction for waiting list tickets, train PNR status, running status, platform number, coach position and the like.

Wrong information : data collected and shows by Ixigo is not genuine , Manduadih Rameshwaram exp normally run before time last 3 month. Himgiri also run only 1 hr /2 hrs late now a days. Followings are most wanted late running trains :
1. 12402 Magadh Exp 2. 12873/74 Jharkhand Exp 3. Mahananda Sikkim Exp 4. Swatantrata Senani Exp have been running late since long. Magadh AND Jharkhand running late since 2007.अगर कोई रेलवे पर मुक़दमा कर दे की वो क्यों सुपरफास्ट चार्जेज ले रहे हैं १२४०२ मगध और १२८७३/७४ झारखण्ड एक्सप्रेस के लिए तो रेलवे को पिछले सात साल का पैसा रिफंड करना पड़ सकता है। सोचिये कितना बड़ा रिफंड होगा।

"Ahmedabad-Mumbai Duronto Express as the train serving the best food”. Strangely, IRI info shows that there no pantry car in that train and also no on board or e-catering. Wonder how did they come to this conclusion?

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.
Criticising

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.

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The state government has revised its order pertaining to land acquisition for construction of flyover and junction improvement in Sreekaryam as part of the light metro project. It has been decided to reduce the extent of land to be acquired.
The decision was taken after the technical committee approved the proposal to reduce the length of flyover at Sreekaryam. This is expected to bring an amicable solution to the issue of land acquisition at Sreekaryam which was facing protest from the locals.
The order has said that land needed to be acquired

for the flyover has been reduced from 4.91 acres to 3.28 acres. After technical committee approved the design, which suggested an 85-metre reduction in the total length of 535 metres, the Kerala Rapid Transit Corporation Limited has requested modification in its earlier proposal.
Local traders and members of Sreekaryam jamaat had formed an action council to protest against the land acquisition at Sreekaryam, which they alleged was unjust. They had stated that they would allow only equi-distance policy. As per the original design, the Sreekaryam jamaat would loss a major part of its property, as per drawings for construction of the flyover. As per the preliminary plan, around 200 shops had to be displaced for the work. The local traders had demanded KRTL to speed up the land acquisition process to put an end to the uncertain
The KRTL is planning to construct a four-lane flyover. Marking of land for acquisition is almost complete at Sreekaryam.
After initiating land acquisition works at Sreekaryam, the KRTL has started land marking works for construction of flyover at Ulloor. In addition to Sreekaryam and Ulloor, KRTL will construct flyovers at Pattom and Thampanoor. Of this, design for Thampanoor has not received administration sanction so far.
A total of 5.22 acres is required for Sreekaryam, Ulloor and Pattom flyovers. The government has given consent for direct purchase of 4.8 acres for metro stations and 5.22 acres for construction of flyovers as part of the project.
