Indian rail budget may cut fares to fight inflation

NEW DELHI, Feb 25 (Reuters) - Indian Railway Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav could reduce some passenger and freight fares when he unveils his business plans for one of the world's largest rail networks on Monday, analysts said.

Indian Railways runs more than 14,000 passenger and freight trains and carries 15 million people daily -- more than the population of Sweden and Norway combined.

Last year passenger and freight rates were left broadly unchanged, but analysts said a cut in freight charges in the fiscal year starting in April could help the government in its battle against inflation.

"Reducing some freight rates could be a possibility if they are adding to food inflation," said D.K. Joshi, principal economist at domestic credit rating agency Crisil.

Wholesale price inflation stood at an annual 6.63 percent in early February after touching 6.73 percent at the start of the month, its highest in more than two years.

Analysts say the network has a cash surplus of nearly $2.5 billion, having turned itself round over the past year.

"The minister can afford to be a little liberal as the surplus is there and he could reduce some passenger and freight fares," said D.H. Pai Panandikar, president of private economic think tank RPG Foundation.

The state-run rail network has for years been synonymous with delays, losses and red tape, losing freight traffic to trucks and passengers to a fleet of new, cut-price air carriers.

Since last year it has pulled out all the stops to turn a profit, from competitive bidding for catering to leasing out advertising space on railway buildings, stations and some trains.

The ministry is trying to increase rail's share of freight by cutting costs and turnaround times, appealing to businesses frustrated by the slow movement of goods. Roads carry 85 percent of India's passenger traffic and 75 percent of freight.

"The minister will continue with his efforts to make the railways competitive and efficient," said T.K. Bhaumik, chief economist with industrial conglomerate Reliance Industries Ltd .

"Modernisation will be a thrust area and fare restructuring and innovation could be a possibility to meet intense competition from airlines and road transport," he added.

The government is desperate to keep prices under control as it approaches key state elections. It cut petrol and diesel prices this month and has also cut import duties on cement, capital goods, steel, aluminium, copper and other industrial raw materials, as well as on palm and sunflower oil.

The central bank has also tightened policy to contain prices.

The railway budget is separate from the federal budget, due on Feb. 28, in keeping with a practice set under British colonial rule and retained due to the sheer volume of freight and passenger receipts.

India mulls railway to Nepal following Chinese plans
Sat Apr 7, 5:59 AM ET

NEW DELHI (AFP) - Indian officials are exploring five options for a railway to neighbouring Nepal, speeding up efforts after China opened its first rail link to Tibet last year, a report said Saturday.

The surveys on the viability of the rail projects have acquired "top priority" in the railway ministry because of concerns over Chinese plans to extend the Tibetan line to the Nepal border, the Indian Express reported.

The Tibet railway, which opened in July, runs 1,142 kilometers (713 miles) from Qinghai province to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, making it the highest line in the world.

Kathmandu said last year that Beijing was willing to extend the line into Nepal.

"Although the Lhasa-Nepal link may neither be technically feasible nor financially viable, the strategic importance of such a link cannot be undermined," a senior Indian railway official told the newspaper.

China also has plans to build a railway line to the Tibetan town of Chomo near a Himalayan border pass to the Indian state of Sikkim in the next 10 years.

Last year, India and China agreed to open the border pass to revive direct trade. The pass was closed 44 years ago following a brief war between the two nations.

The two Asian giants have also been holding talks to sort out a decades-old border row, though the border has remained largely peaceful since the war.

Bangladesh, India to restore train links after four decades

DHAKA, March 29, 2007 (AFP) - Bangladesh and India will restore direct passenger train services after a gap of more than four decades, the government said Thursday.

The Bangladesh cabinet, led by interim government chief Fakhruddin Ahmed, gave the go-ahead for the resumption of the service, a government statement said.

The train will run between Sealdah, in the eastern Indian city of Kolkata, and Joydevpur, near the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka, it said.

The cabinet also decided to extend until 2010 the experimental train service agreement the two countries signed in 2001. The agreement, which lays the groundwork for the service to run, was to end in July this year.

Passenger train services between the two countries were suspended after the 1965 war between India and Pakistan. Bangladesh was then part of Pakistan. Bangladesh became independent in 1971.

While passenger services remained suspended, cargo links between the countries continued and in the 1990s a passenger bus service was launched between Dhaka and Kolkata, which share the Bengali language in common.

Bangladesh railway chief Belayet Hossain said the cabinet decisions meant the last hurdles had been cleared in the drive to restore the passenger train service.

The foreign ministers of Bangladesh and India agreed to resume the service in a meeting last month. But it still needed formal cabinet backing.

"We can now start the service in less than three months' time. There are some technical problems such as tariff and immigration, which needs to be settled. But they won't take time," Hossain said.

The state-run Bangladesh Railway chief said at first it was hoped to run a train a day from either side.

"It will initially carry some 600 passengers. But if it attracts more passengers we will add more trains," he said, adding there was huge potential for the service.

Passengers Push Stalled Train in India
16 May 2007

PATNA, India (AP) - A stalled train in India got a helpful nudge from hundreds of railway passengers in eastern India, a railway official said Wednesday. The train stalled in the Buxar district of the state of Bihar on Tuesday when an electrical connection snapped, railway spokesman A.K. Chandra said.

The driver then asked the passengers to push the train to the next electricity pole about 60 yards away, where the train was able to restart and resume its journey, he added.

The electric passenger train was traveling between Banahi and Raghunathpur.

India has one the world's largest railway network that carries more than 14 million passengers daily, but railway stations and tracks are often poorly maintained resulting in accidents and a poor safety record.

3 Bombs Discovered on Train in India
21 May 2007

CALCUTTA, India (AP) - Police discovered three bombs hidden in a train parked at Calcutta's main railroad station on Monday and safely removed them, police said.

The discovery comes days after a bomb went off in a mosque in the southern city of Hyderabad, killing 11 people.

"Our people were on a routine search of trains and found the bombs in one of the trains," said Amarkanti Sarkar, Inspector General of Railway Police.

No one claimed responsibility for planting the bombs, and police said it was too soon to name a suspect.

The train was set to travel from the Howrah railroad station in Calcutta to Tarakeswar, a small town sacred to Hindus some 50 miles west of Calcutta. Hundreds of pilgrims use the train daily.

There have been several attacks on trains in the last year, including the July bombings of seven Mumbai commuter trains that killed more than 200 people, and the bombing of a train linking India and Pakistan that killed 68 people in March.

In January, an explosion ripped through two cars of a passenger train near Belacoba railroad station, about 345 miles north of Calcutta, killing four people.

Maoists blow up railway stations in eastern India

RANCHI, India, Aug 1 (Reuters) - Maoist insurgents blew up two railway stations and disrupted public transport in rural strongholds in eastern India on Wednesday as a day-long strike took hold.

The insurgents detonated powerful explosives at two railway stations in the eastern state of Jharkhand in a pre-dawn attack, disrupting links with parts of eastern and northern India, officials said.

"They drove away our employees and then blew up the stations, causing huge losses," Amrish Kumar Gupta, a senior railway official, said in Jharkhand's capital, Ranchi.

Dozens of trains were cancelled across eastern India and several others diverted or held up due to the strike call.

The rebels also blocked some highways to stop the movement of vehicles during the strike, called to protest against what they termed "growing police atrocities" in leaflets distributed in many towns and villages.

In northern Jharkhand, rebels fired at bus drivers, causing one to lose control of the vehicle and plunge into a ditch.

"More than a dozen passengers were injured in the accident, while some were hit by bullets," said Mohammed Nihal, a senior police officer.

While life was largely normal in the main cities, shops were closed in some towns across the region, while authorities suspended public transport to rebel strongholds.

Hundreds of goods vehicles were stranded in southern parts of the mineral-rich state of Chhattisgarh.

Maoist rebels operate in a large swathe of India stretching from the east to some southern states, mostly in the countryside, and attack government officials and property.

They say they are fighting for the rights of millions of poor peasants and landless labourers. Thousands of people have been killed in the insurgency which began in the late 1960s.

Quote:
There is a saying that the only way to discover the real India is by taking a train journey.


For decades, many adventurous tourists have used this option - travelling on crowded, non-air conditioned carriages often with wooden seats, at a steady pace through the Indian countryside.


It brought them face-to-face with millions of ordinary Indians who make up the six billion people transported by this vast network every year - middle-class families on vacation, farm or factory workers heading home to their villages, soldiers off to join their colleagues on the frontier.

For years the state-owned system was the ultimate symbol of socialist India - a service subsidised by the state so that the vast lengths of the country could be linked.


While impressive, it was also characterised by poor services, slow trains, filthy stations and archaic signalling systems.


It also never made any money.


Now, remarkably, all that has changed.

Over the past year Indian Railways has generated profits of $4.5bn - double that of India's largest private company, Reliance Industries.


Turnaround


It is also attracting more passengers and improving its services with better trains and improved comforts.
There is no inherent conflict between commercial opportunities and social obligation
Railway official Sudhir Kumar



So how has Indian Railways - which is government-owned and operated by a vast bureaucracy - turned things around in a highly competitive market?

I decided to start at the very beginning - at the magnificent and enormous Victoria Terminus in Mumbai (Bombay) - a Gothic architectural masterpiece with lofty domes, carved stone friezes and stained glass windows.


It is a ready reminder that the railways were started when India was a part of the British empire.

This is where, in 1853, 400 people boarded the first ever passenger service in India, from Mumbai to neighbouring Thane - a distance of 34km (about 20 miles).


High-end Shatabdi trains have plush airline-style seating



Now, of course, the railways in India span 60,000km and bridge the enormous diversity of this continent-sized country - from the high Himalayan mountains in the north to the western desert, the western and eastern coasts, the deep south and the distant north-eastern state of Assam.

It is, in effect, India's lifeline.


The vast terminal is teeming with people, as they wait patiently for the first of many of the long-distance expresses to pull in.


Travelling by rail in India has always been relatively inexpensive - a trip from Mumbai to the capital, Delhi, costs between 425 and 3,000 rupees ($10-$73) depending on the class of travel.


But the deregulation of the Indian aviation market has led to a huge increase in budget airlines offering cheaper fares.


So the railways have decided to hit back.


On platform four, a huge crowd is waiting for the fully-air conditioned Garib Rath [Poor-Man's Chariot] to pull in.


Among those waiting are the Ansari family.



Comfortable


Every year, Mumbai shop worker Zahir Ansari takes his family to his village in north India.


But for the first time in their lives, they will be travelling in air-conditioned comfort.


"My wife read about this train in the papers and insisted I try and get us tickets," he says.

"It will be so much more comfortable for the boys in the summer heat," he adds, looking at his two little sons.


The Garib Rath is just one of many initiatives taken by Indian Railways in its effort to attract more passengers.


At the other end of the scale is the Shatabdi Express.


Mr Kumar says the railways are ready to face the competition



This high-speed inter-city train caters to business travellers making the point-to-point journey between Indian cities which are located fairly close to each other - and can be covered in about eight hours or less.


On the Mumbai-Ahmedabad Shatabdi, it is all about living in the fast lane.


As our blue and gold train pulls away, I am seated in an airline-style seat with a footrest, personal reading lamp, a laptop and mobile phone point and a personal LCD television screen to watch the latest stock market trends.


A uniformed attendant pushes a cart through the narrow aisle offering passengers beverages followed by soup and dinner.

Changes



The seven-hour journey costs 1,295 rupees ($32).


There are other changes too.

Eating on board has always been a major part of the Indian railway experience.


From piping hot tea served in little ceramic cups to spicy curries and omelette on toast - the railways have always catered to a variety of tastes.



But now, at the modern Mumbai Central station there is a huge sign towering over the concourse - twin golden arches of the world's most famous fast-food brand, McDonalds.


There is also a pizzeria, Starbucks-style coffee shops and Indian fast-food restaurants serving their takeaways in cardboard boxes.


And on board, tea is now made with teabags and served in a little plastic cup.


The railway is India's lifeline


Indian Railways own vast spaces across the country - mostly around their stations.


These will now be rented or leased out to big retail giants - Walmart, local retail brands and hotels.


Considering that the railways have about 7,000 stations across the country, there is plenty of space. It is estimated that 40,000 hectares of railway land is at the moment under-utilised or completely unused.

But to get a real sense of where their ambitions lie, I head out to Mulund - a suburb of Mumbai and home to one of the system's many inland container depots.


This is where huge containers are brought in from Mumbai port to be transported along the railway network to various parts of the country.


"Every half-hour, a container train is setting off somewhere in the country," says Manish Kumar, general manager of the depot.



Business sense

Recognising that freight can be a major source of revenue in an economy that is one of the fastest growing in the world, the railways have now decided to build dedicated lines for freight trains connecting Delhi with Mumbai and Calcutta.


A senior official at the Railway Ministry, Sudhir Kumar, says the system has been able to turn things around simply by working on their strengths - by improving the infrastructure so that they can carry more loads, people and cargo.

"We are still a public utility and are fully conscious of our social obligations," he says.


"But I feel that there is no inherent conflict between commercial opportunities and social obligation."

So as India continues to transform under its growing economy - some of its oldest and most venerated institutions are beginning to change with clear results.


Even if some of the romance has gone out of one of the world's oldest and largest railway systems.

UPDATE 1-India to build rail freight corridors for $7.15 bln

NEW DELHI, Nov 27 (Reuters) - India has approved two rail freight corridors to be built at a cost of 281.81 billion rupees ($7.15 billion) over five years as it looks to build infrastructure capable of maintaining high economic growth.

Finance Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram said on Tuesday the the proposed multi-modal, high axle load freight corridors would link several major cities and had been agreed by ministers.

The eastern corridor, connecting Ludhiana in western Punjab state and Kolkata in the east, will cost 118.59 billion rupees, while the bill for the western corridor between Mumbai and New Delhi would be 165.92 billion rupees, he said. "The project will immensely benefit ports, exporters, importers, shipping lines and container operators by the western corridor, and coal companies, steel plants and thermal power stations by the eastern corridor," the minister said.

"The project will provide the much needed rail infrastructure for growth of Indian economy and trade."

Japanese officials said in August that Tokyo was considering offering low-interest loans to help fund the rail link between Delhi and the financial capital, Mumbai.

Policymakers estimate that India will require $475 billion to improve its creaky infrastructure, which is key to sustaining annual economic growth of 9 percent. ($1=39.4 rupees) (Reporting by Rajkumar Ray, Editing by Mark Williams)

I have a very important question regarding Indian Railways. Does anyone know where I could get information about them nowadays and recent history? I need it to be fairly academic, this is for a graduate school term paper. I would appreciate it greatly.

OMG, can't understand the English of the reporter .It's nice to see that they're putting effort in modernzing. I wonder why can't they provide more modern rolling stocks ages ago since they produce all their trains/rolling stocks/locomotives locally.
