Mumbai: The Western Railway (WR) has rubbished reports that 40 per cent seats on all the trains in the Mumbai-Ahmedabad section go vacant and claimed that the occupancy was over 100 per cent in these trains.
Railway Minister Piyush Goyal also tweeted saying, “Contrary to media reports, Mumbai-Ahmedabad train section running at above 100% occupancy and will benefit immensely from Bullet train (sic).”
The WR, in a statement, said it would like to clarify that reports regarding 40 per cent seats being vacant in the trains running or passing between Mumbai and Ahmedabad

and that the WR had incurred losses of Rs 30 crore in the sector over the last three months were not factually correct, as in fact, there was over a 100 per cent occupancy in the section.
Goyal also posted the WR statement on Twitter.
WR’s Chief Public Relations Officer (CPRO) Ravinder Bhakar said, “Contrary to the reports, the Western Railway’s total earnings during the said three months from this sector were Rs 233 crore.”
Earlier, city-based Right to Information (RTI) activist Anil Galgali had claimed to have found through a query that there was a difference of Rs 29 crore in the WR’s actual earnings and earning potential, because the trains running in the Mumbai-Ahmedabad section had 40 per cent vacant seats. Galgali had also raised a concern over the bullet train project, saying it was “not a viable option” financially as well as from the point of view of the common man.
The activist had claimed that the WR’s Chief Commercial Manager, Manjeet Singh, provided him the information for the period between July 1 and September 30, 2017, giving details about 32 mail and express trains running or passing between Mumbai and Ahmedabad.
Bhakar said the reply to the RTI query was against a specific question regarding the number of passengers travelling from Mumbai Central to Ahmedabad and from Ahmedabad to Mumbai Central — only these two stations. He added that the reply did not include information about the en route traffic — the number of passengers travelling from the originating station to intermediate stations, intermediate to intermediate stations and intermediate stations to the destination station — thereby showing a lower occupancy.
“It is pertinent to mention that despite the period from July to September, 2017 being a lean season, the occupancy was above 100 per cent and the figure (of occupancy) for the period from October, 2016 to September, 2017 for 34 trains was 124.72 per cent,” the CPRO said.
Rail activist Rajiv Singal also said, “I am a frequent traveller on this route and I have always found wait-listed tickets on these trains.”
The Mumbai–Ahmedabad section is one of the busiest routes of the Indian Railways. Nine direct trains run between the two cities and around 25 more travel to forward destinations via Ahmedabad, the WR statement said. The section also has important en route stations and industrial towns such as Vadodara, Bharuch, Surat, Vapi and Valsad, it added.

The train is expected to co The train is expected to co ver 508km in about two hours, running at a maximum speed of 350kmph and operating speed of 320kmph. Railways hope to complete the project by December 2023.
A senior official said, “As per the tentative programme, the bhoomi pujan will be done at the hands of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Japanese PM. The event is most likely to be held in Gujarat.“
An India-Japan joint statement issued during Modi's visit in November 2016 had stated, “The two Prime Ministers recognised the importance of accelerating the Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Rail (MAHSR) project by holding the groundbreaking ceremony in 2017.“
Estimated to cost Rs 97,636 crore, 81% funding for it will come by way of a loan from Japan.The estimate includes possible cost-escalation, interest during construction and import duties. It is a soft loan for 50 years at 0.1% annual interest with a 15-year moratorium.
An official said, “This is show-piece project and the government will definitely want to show progress on the project to the people of Gujarat.“

the route will be elevated. hence stations should ideally be elevated without interfering with the existing tracks.
as far as stops at virar and dahanu is concerned, I think these are well thought of. Today the suburban network on western line stretches upto dahanu with population increasing here exponentially.
Today if a person wants to go to virar from bkc by ola or meru, you will have to shell out a minimum of Rs. 1200 and would take a minimum of 90 minutes.

In India only Gujarat state is important. Other state people should not think about any development.
