Bansal green light for railway line in Tonk

Quote:
JAIPUR: It was a celebration time in Tonk as their wait for rail connectivity will end soon.

Union railway minister Pawan Bansal on Wednesday gave green signal to the proposal of rail line in Tonk by asking state government to provide free land and also spend 5o% of the total expenditure of the project, said North Western railway public relation manager Tarun Jain said.

In celebration a rally was taken out in Tonk city. The residents of the city have been demanding rail connectivity for more than five decades. Rail Lao Samiti (RLS) President Salim Naqvi said, "Our two generations have not seen train in Tonk, when the other cities were well connected with bigger cities through train. But, now we hope that soon we will get rail connectivity. In 1983, a delegation including me, met the then prime minister Indira Gandhi, but our efforts went in vain as till 2013, the train in Tonk remained a distant dream. But, now, railway minister Bansal gave us new hope."

Railway Board, in a letter written on Febraury 17, 2012 to the then Rajasthan chief secretary S Ahmed mentioning, "Railways have a huge throw forward of ongoing sanctioned projects and it is not possible to take up this highly un- remunerative project due to resource crunch."

The letter further added, "However, if the state government comes forward to provide land free of cost and in addition, to share atleast 50% of the construction cost, the ministry of railways may process this project for further clearances."

In 2009-10, the then railway minister had announced survey for Ajmer-Tonk-Sawai Madhopur new rail line project in budget speech. In the survey, it was found that the abstract cost of 165kilometer of new rail project was assessed as Rs709.17crore. In the survey, it was found that the state government has to provide 724.55 hactares of land in Ajmer and Tonk and Sawai Madhopur districts. The cost of land was assessed as Rs74.87crore.

3 strategic railway lines in Rajasthan to be developed

Quote:
JAISALMER: Rajasthan has three of the 14 strategic railway lines that have been identified in the country for development on a priority basis. The railway lines have been declared strategic from an operational and logistics perspective for the Army.

The three lines identified in the state included the Jodhpur-Jaisalmer double line, the Anupgarh-Chattargarh-Motigarh-Bikaner line and a new line in Jaisalmer district which connects Jodhpur, Angolai, Shergarh and Phalsund.

"Defence minister A K Antony in a written reply to Barmer-Jaislamer MP Harish Chaudhary in Lok Sabha said the comprehensive capability development plan pertaining to strategic railway lines in the country, including those in the Jammu and Kashmir, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand and North-East states has been drawn up by the Services based on the inputs from the operational commands and validated from an operational and logistics perspective," defence spokesperson Col S D Goswami said.

He said double lining of Jodhpur-Jaisalmer line has been proposed as one of the 14 strategic railway lines. Survey of the said line has been completed and two new tracks of Jodhpur-Angolai-Shergarh-Phalsund (of Jaisalmer District) and Anupgarh-CHattargarh-Motigarh-Bikaner in Rajasthan will prove significant for the Army in Rajasthan, Goswami added.

Joshi unveils rail bonanza for Rajasthan

Quote:
NEW DELHI: Rajasthan is set to get various rail projects, including a broad gauge line connecting holy city Nathdwara and a Shatabdi-like train between Jaipur and Udaipur.

"Nathdwara city is a holy place where lakhs of pilgrims visit every year. Since the nearest station Mandiana is 11km away from the city, we have decided to connect the holy city with the construction of a broad gauge line," railway minister CP Joshi told .

Nathdwara is famous for its 17th century Lord Krishna temple which houses the idol of Shrinathji -- the seven-year-old incarnation of Krishna.

Currently, pilgrims travel to the temple by road from Mandiana station which is 11km away from the town. "A primary alignment has been identified to connect the temple town and a detailed survey will be undertaken soon to lay the broad gauge line. There will be a modern station at Nathdwara town," he said.

In order to facilitate faster mode of transport between Udaipur and Jaipur, Joshi said there will be a Shatabdi-like train for the two tourist destinations. "A decision has been taken to run Shatabdi-like train between Udaipur and Jaipur shortly."

Joshi has also sanctioned Rs 212.23 crore for conversion of 62km-long narrow gauge line to broad gauge between Dholpur and Sarmathura. "The broad gauge line will be extended upto Gangapur city," he said.
The Rail Budget had announced for setting up a Rs 800 crore coach factory in Bhilwara, the Lok Sabha constituency of Joshi.

Railways have signed an agreement with Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Ltd for setting up the coach factory and the state is providing land for it, Joshi said.

TOI epaper
Quote:
Move Will Benefit Alwar, Ajmer Section

The rail ministry has sanctioned Rs 1067.50 crore for electrification of Delhi Sarairohilla to Ahmedabad via Alwar, Jaipur, Ajmer. The NWR author ities were already upbeat since the electrification proposal was sent and survey work was over, now they have also invited tenders for electrification of AlwarAjmer section. In the previous rail budgets, the rail ministers had made provisions for electrification of Delhi Sarairohilla -Rewari-Alwar-Bandikui -Jaipur-Phulera-Ajmer-Pa lanpurAhmedabad section.

Tarun Jain, chief public relations officer, NWR, said on Tuesday, “The work between Rewari –Alwar section is already on and we are also planning electrification on Rewari-Hisaar route. For the Alwar-Ajmer we have already invited tenders and in some time, the work on this section would also start.” Meanwhile, the Jaipur MP Ramcharan Bohara said this electrification will usher in economic development.

“During February 2013, the economic affairs cabinet committee had given nod for the budget and it was also added in the 2013-14 rail budget but was not pursued properly by the former government. I had written a letter to rail minister DV Sadanand Gauda on August, 27, 2014 and I am thankful that he has paid attention to my request,” Bohara said.
