New rail route to help cement industry in Rajasthan

Source: Daily Bhaskar
Quote:
Being just 27.8 km long, it could be one of the shortest rail sections in the country. But once completed, the Bangadgram-Ras rail section will usher in enormous benefits to cement industry. This will provide a full rail link for cement units in Ras.

Cement units in Ras in Pali district hitherto have relied on combination of rail and road link, for carting the input (coal) and also transporting their final product. The new rail line, which is likely to be in place by December 2012, will create direct rail connectivity with cement units of Ras. These cement units till now used railway connectivity till Bangadgram (nearest railway station) and were compelled to take the road route from Bangadgram to Pali.

Railway Board chairman Vinay Mittal, who was recently in Jaipur, had told journalists that the new railway link was likely to be in place by December 2012. Presently, two significant players of cement industry — Ambuja Cement and Shree Cement — are having units in Ras and the new rail link could pave the way for more cement units, exploring this place in Pali district.

Sources said in the want of direct rail link with Ras, many cement producers are shying away from exploiting the enormous potential for the industry situated there. Once the rail tracks are in place, things are likely to change.

The rail link by lowering down transportation cost is also likely to cast a shadow on price of finished cement product. New rail track is to be financed partially by the Railways and partially by the cement units. Possession of land in Pali and Ajmer district is complete while talks are underway with government to get land with forest department for the project, which will cost `150 crore.

Escalators at Jaipur, Ajmer railway stations soon

Source: Daily Bhaskar
Quote:
There is some good news for railway passengers at Jaipur and Ajmer railway stations. The long-awaited project of installing escalators at the two premier stations of North Western Railway (NWR) is likely to start shortly.

Sources say it’s quite possible that escalators might become functional at Ajmer and Jaipur stations before March 31.

The project forming part of 2009-10 Budget pronouncements, has received a fresh lease of life with the Railway Board recently clearing the decks for it.

The Board has recently finalised the contract for supply of world-class escalators, paving the way for installation of escalators at Jaipur and Ajmer in NWR and many other stations in remaining railway zones. The two escalators will be installed at Platform No 1 and between Platform No 2 and 3 in Jaipur, while the two others will be installed platforms 1, 2 & 3in Ajmer.

When contacted on Wednesday, NWR spokesman Lalit Bohra said Railway Board has finalised the contract for supply of the escalators. With the awarding of civil and electrical engineering contracts also being finalised in Jaipur and Ajmer, the installation process at both stations will begin as soon as the escalator equipment arrive.

“The Board has cleared the decks and sought status of preparations from our side, which we’re sending to them shortly. We hope to begin the actual work soon,” the NWR spokesman said.

Ambuja Cement signs pact with RIICO for Railways siding project

Quote:
JAIPUR: Jaipur Rajasthan State Industrial Development and Investment Corporation Limited (RIICO) and Ambuja Cement Limited (ACL) signed an MOU for a 7 km long railway siding.

The tracks will be laid and developed between company's cement plant at Rabriyawas in Pali district and Ras railway station in Ajmer Marwar section of North Western Railway. The siding will facilitate the transport of raw as well as finished material from the cement plant.

RIICO managing director Rajendra Bhanawat told ET that the project in terms of cost of land, laying of tracks and developing other infrastructure will cost approximately Rs. 150 crores. "We will facilitate the project by acquiring land for it while the company will have to take care of other requirements," he said.


RIICO has recently signed a similar agreement with UltraTech Cement for commissioning of a railway project in Sikar and Jhunjhunu districts. The company will lay a 6 km railway siding from villages Kolida and Beri in Sikar district to the plant site in village Turkani in Jhunjhunu district where the company is setting up a 3 million tonnes cement project with an estimated investment of Rs. 2500 crores.

Soon, Jodhpur railway station to get two new platforms

Quote:
Jodhpur: Trains coming to Jodhpur will now not need to wait out side the city at other stations as two new platforms are slated to be constructed quite soon.

Several measures are likely to be taken in wake of the problems coming in the movement of trains due to technical snags at yard.

The two new platforms will also be constructed as part of these measures only.

As of now, the Jodhpur station has five platforms, and due to heavy traffic several trains fail to get space during the morning and evening hours.

Due to this, the trains often await their turn at Raikabad and Bhagat Ki Kothi stations.

The fund allotted for the construction of the platforms and work at the yard is Rs five crore.

New rail route from Chittor, traders eye more profits

Quote:
Jaipur: The Rajasthan government has proposed a new railway line to boost trade along the industrial belt on the Chittorgarh-Mandsaur route. This is the second major proposal for a new line after the state government successfully pushed its earlier project of laying a new track on the Ratlam-Banswara-Dungarpur route.

The Ratlam-Banswara-Dungarpur railway line is critical for the development of several power projects lined up in the area. The new proposed railway line would cater to cement industries in the Chittorgarh-Pratapgarh area.

The proposal was tabled by the state government while signing a memorandum of understanding with the railway board in New Delhi for the Ratlam-Banswara-Dungarpur project on Tuesday.

Chief secretary Salauddin Ahmad and railway board director Vivek Sahay signed the agreement, paving way for the new railway line that would connect the tribal areas in the state.

The project would cost more than Rs 2000 crore. In a clever move, the state government has offered to pitch in with half the funds required for laying the new railway line, a move which even the ministry of railways cannot write off.

After getting the fresh proposal from the state, railway board director said that he would have the area inspected for the feasibility of a new railway line first and added that the ministry would take up the project on the format on which the Ratlam-Banswara-Dungarpur railway line has been taken up, provided the railways finds the track feasible.

Energy secretary Naresh Pal Gangwar said that the Ratlam-Banswara-Dungarpur railway line would assist in the development of power projects with a generation capacity of 4,000 MW in the Banswara region. Officials said that the railway track would also serve to ferry coal from other states to the thermal power stations in the area.

Now, Ajmer-Pushkar train trip for just R 5

Source: Daily Bhaskar
Quote:
Now, chug between Ajmer and Pushkar for just Rs 5. Till now connected via road only, the tourist hotspot of Pushkar will finally have a rupee five per passenger rail link.

Finally, the first train will on Tuesday chug down Ajmer-Pushkar track awaiting rail traffic since May 26, 2011.

The 25.7-km Ajmer-Pushkar rail line will be inaugurated by Railways minister Dinesh Trivedi in presence of Ajmer MP and Union minister of state for IT & communication Sachin Pilot and CM Ashok Gehlot on Tuesday, North Western Railway CPRO Lalit Bohra said. The Railways minister will flag off the five days every week special train from Pushkar railway station.

The 10-coach train, which will run all days except Tuesdays and Fridays will start off from Ajmer at 9.15 am and reach Pushkar at 10.40 am and return at 3.40 pm to reach Ajmer at 5 pm. A meagre fare of `5 will be charged from each passenger of the train, less than half of what is being charged by buses for the same distance.

On January 23, the first day of operation, the train will start off from Pushkar at 11.40 am and reach Ajmer at 1.07 pm, after halting at Madar, Makarwali and Burha Pushkar stations which will be part of its itinerary in future also.

The new train connecting the two religious tourism hotspots in an hour and 20 minutes will render a new mode of transport to tourists, which hitherto connected with Pushkar via road only.

The 25.7-km line between Ajmer and Pushkar was completed in 10 years at a cost of Rs 106 crore. After the completion of laying of track in April last year, the commissioner railway safety had conducted a safety inspection on May 26, 2011.

First double-decker train from Delhi to Jaipur in 2 months


Quote:
NEW DELHI: The first double-decker train, to be introduced between Delhi and Jaipur, will be finally running on the tracks within the next two months before presentation of the railway budget.

The train that was to make its maiden journey in July last year was delayed by several months after the Howrah-Dhanbad prototype being run by the eastern railway faced technical snags. This train, though, is now running without a hitch prompting northern railway to take the plunge.

"We are planning a trial run from February after which we plan to start operations from March,'' said S K Sharma, CPRO (northern railway).

Sources said the railway safety commissioner is yet to give a go-ahead.

Year chugs by, Rajasthan yet to get its trains

Source: Daily Bhaskar
Quote:
The next rail budget is a month away, but various announcements made in the previous budget for Rajasthan still remain a pipe dream. Only three of the 14 trains announced in 2011-12 rail budget by the then railway minister Mamata Banerjee connecting Rajasthan with other parts of the country have started operations till date.

With the model code of conduct in force due to the ongoing elections in five states, none of the remaining eleven trains, most of them long distance, are likely to run by end of this fiscal year.

Surprisingly, the time table of the non-operational trains has been announced long back in July 2011, but the trains still remain a distant dream, even as the present railway minister Dinesh Trivedi has often reiterated that Rajasthan has a special place in his heart.

The three trains announced in previous rail budget and running presently are bi-weekly Jodhpur-Delhi (via Degana and Ratangarh), Bikaner-Delhi Superfast and the weekly Kavi Guru Express connecting Guwahati and Jaipur.

The non-starter trains include the bi-weekly Nizamuddin-Ajmer Non-AC Duronto, the much awaited Jaipur-Delhi AC double-decker and the Jaipur-Agra Fort Shatabdi Express.

Also among the non-starter new trains is the weekly Vivek Express, connecting Bandra with Jammu Tawi (via Marwar, Degana and Ratangarh), Kolkata-Ajmer weekly train, Udaipur-Bandra tri-weekly, Bhagalpur-Ajmer weekly and Varanasi-Ahmedabad weekly via Ajmer.

While 56 per cent of the new trains announced to connect Rajasthan with other parts of the country are still to be flagged off, extension of two of the five existing trains announced during the previous budget also remain incomplete.

The two trains, include Udaipur-Gwalior Express (extended up to Khajuraho) and Sultanpur-Ajmer Express (up to Ahmedabad).

During his recent visits to Jaipur, the railway minister had reiterated that Rajasthan was special for him. It still remains a mystery as to how the trains announced by his party chief for Rajasthan still remain non-starter.

North Western Railway (NWR) sources confided that with most of the non-starter trains slated to pass through the five poll-bound states, the model code of conduct was blocking their first journey.

NWR official spokesman Lalit Bohra said, “We’re awaiting the green signal to the non-starter trains from the Railway Board, due to which the dates of their start cannot be declared.”
Rajasthan trains remain on paper

The next budget of the railways is just a month away. But announcements made in the budget last year, including new trains for Rajasthan, have not been implemented. Only three of the 14 trains announced last year are running.

With the model code of conduct in force due to the ongoing Assembly elections in five states, none of the announcements are likely to converted into action before the next budget. This is because most of the trains are long-distance ones running through different states. Ironically, the running schedules for these trains were announced in June last year. The three trains that started running last year are Jodhpur-Delhi Super Fast, Bikaner-Delhi Super Fast and Guwahati-Jaipur Kavi Guru Express.

The trains that were promised but never saw the light of the day include the much-hyped Delhi-Jaipur Double Decker, Bandra-Jammu Tawi Vivek Express, Bhagalpur-Ajmer Super Fast and Nizamuddin-Ajmer Duranto, among others. The extension plans of two of five existing trains also remain on paper.

In his recent visit to Rajasthan, the railway minister had asked why the trains announced his predecessor Mamata Banerjee were not pressed into service.

The promised trains will not start running until Assembly polls are over in five states, as the trains will pass through some of these states, railway sources said.

North Western Railway gets more passenger

Source: Deccan Herald
Quote:
The North Western railway headquartered in Jaipur registered an impressive growth in passenger traffic and revenue generation.

Addressing a media conference General manger of the NWR RC Agarwal said the growth in passenger traffic in the railway has been to the tune of 36 per cent in the last five years which is an exceptional performance.

He said the 17 per cent growth in passenger traffic reported last year is the highest reported in the Indian railways.

He added that this has reflected in the revenue receipts. Compared to Rs 1,840 crore in 2005-06 the revenue has reported a substantial increase of Rs 3,380 crore in 2010-11, which is 12.6 per cent, and the growth in revenue has been 15.71 per cent for the year 2011-12.

He said the Indian Railways had awarded the NWR in 2010 for its RPF security shield initiative. The Yatri Mitra scheme was appreciated at the national level for being passenger friendly. He added that an integrated security system is being envisaged for the Jaipur railway station and will be made operational shortly.

The disaster management plan for the headquarters and the division has been certified as ISO 9000, which is a first in Indian Railways.

He claimed that NWR has been maintaining a consistently high performance in punctuality at 96 per cent in the last three years which is the highest in the country.

Agarwal said all the new trains announced in the last budget would be made operational before March 31.

He also said a proposal involving an expenditure of Rs 1,200 crore to man all level crossings under the NWR has been forwarded to the Railway Board for sanction.

Meanwhile, the NWR has held responsible driver and guard of Delhi-Ajmer Shatabdi Express for for its unscheduled halting at Bandikui railway station in Rajasthan last year allegedly at the behest of former BJP MP Vijay Goel.

Goel had allegedly got the train stopped at the station where BJP workers received him.

A highly-placed NWR official said once the special double-decker coaches are handed over to railways, the much-awaited train could start running between Delhi and Jaipur by March 15. In the recent past, both chairman railway board Vinay Mittal and NWR GM RC Agarwal had said that the Jaipur-Delhi double-decker will start running anytime before March 31.



When contacted in this regard, NWR official spokesman Lalit Bohra, while without spelling out exact day, said, “The double-decker will run before March 31.”

रेलयात्रियों के लिए खुशखबरी..मार्च से शुरु हो रही है यह खास ट्रेन

Source: Dainik Bhaskar
Quote:
दिल्ली से जयपुर के बीच चलने वाली प्रस्तावित डबल डेकर ट्रेन को चलाने के सारे रास्ते साफ हो गए हैं देश की दूसरी डबल डेकर ट्रेन मार्च महीने से दिल्ली-जयपुर के बीच दौड़ने लगेगी। हावड़ा धनबाद के बीच डबल डेकर ट्रेन चलाने के बाद रेलवे का यह दूसरा प्रयास है। हांलाकि मुंबई से सूरत के बीच पहले ही डबल डेकर ट्रेन चल रही है लेकिन वो नॉन एसी है जबकि दिल्ली-जयपुर डबल डेकर पूरी तरह से एसी होगी।

आपको बता दें कि डबल डेकर होने बावजूद यह ट्रेन आम ट्रेनो से ऊंचाई में दोगुनी नहीं होगी बल्कि इसकी ऊंचाई आम ट्रेन से मात्र साढ़े चार इंच ज्यादा होगी। रेलवे के मुताबिक उन्होंने इस ट्रेन को चलाने के लिए सारे जरुरी बदलावों को अंजाम दे दिया है। शेड पीछे करने और प्लेटफॉर्म में मामूली बदलाव कर दिए गए हैं। हांलाकि ट्रेन के साइज में ज्यादा फर्क न होने की वजह से ज्यादा बदलावों की जरुरत भी नहीं पड़ रही है।

यह ट्रेन जयपुर से सुबह 6 बजे चलेगी और 10.30 बजे दिल्ली पहुंचेगी। जबकि शाम को 5.35 बजे दिल्ली से चलकर 10.05 बजे जयपुर पहुंचेगी। इस ट्रेन में 8 कोच होंगे जिसमें 1000 यात्री सफर कर सकेंगे। एक कोच में 128 यात्रियों के बैठने की जगह होगी। यह ट्रेन 160 किलोमीटर प्रतिघंटे की रफ्तार से दौड़ेगी।

The much awaited air-conditioned double-decker train between Delhi and Jaipur — announced in the last Railway Budget will become operational within the current financial year that ends on March 31, according to North Western Railway.

However, with the deadline barely one-and-a half month away, it is going to be a difficult task for the department.

The railway officials say the delay is due to non-availability of the coaches which are still being manufactured. “The train would become operational once we get the rakes. The train is likely to be launched anytime in March,” said Lalit Bohra, CPRO of North-Western Railway.

The ambitious high speed train will be second such train after the AC double-decker train that was launched between Dhanbad and Howrah in October last year. Railway officials say the technical difference between the rakes of the two trains is the major cause behind the delay.

The daily train scheduled to run between Jaipur and Sarai Rohilla station in the capital will have 70 per cent more seating capacity than Shatabdi Express.

The train to Pink city, a major tourist destination, is highly awaited ever since it was announced. Railway officials say there is heavy passenger rush on the Delhi-Jaipur route and the new rail services will provide affordable AC travel to all. The double-decker service is also expected to significantly reduce the rush for Volvo buses and use of personal vehicles on this route.

The double-decker coaches would have common doors for boarding. A flight of stairs would take passengers to the lower floor, which is partly under the platform level.

Another flight of stairs would take passengers to the upper floor. Like Shatabdi express, the train would have only sitting arrangement with racks for luggage.

At present there are only two fully air-conditioned trains for Jaipur from Delhi - Ahmedabad Rajdhani Express and Delhi-Ajmer Shatabdi Express.
