ECoR BOUND TRAINS FROM & TO NORTHERN PARTS OF INDIA RUNNING LATE

Train servicestowards/from East Coast Railway are being affected  and losing their punctuality due to dense fog in North India, especially in Delhi and North Central region. Many important and prestigious trains like Rajdhani, Duronto, Sampark Kranti, Purusottam, Utkal, Nandankanan, Neelachal, Hirakud Express are being badly affected and their scheduled running paths have gone haywire.


East Coast Railway has urged its passengers to bear with the delay in train running as the situation is unavoidable. Many trains are now being rescheduled and will run o­n changed timings. Passengers are urged to refer to Helpline Enquiry Phone139to know the current status of their trains. Rescheduling of trains would also be announced in the media from time to time. East Coast Railway has already alerted its maintenance staff to be ready for the workload of trains that would be coming out of schedule.  Railways have stepped up monitoring24X7the running of trains and a special drive has now been started with the o­nset of the winter season and prevalence of fog in the morning hours.


East Coast Railway has geared up its manpower to cope with the dense fog during night and early morning in various Railway Sections under its jurisdiction and in the areas prone to be affected by fog and precautions have been taken regarding train running during the current winter season.


In dense fog weather i.e. in winter, drivers have been instructed to regulate train speed depending o­n visibility conditions for the safety of passengers and train movement. Apart from this, several precautions have also been taken and train running staffs are being counselled by the Railway Officers & Safety Counsellors to cope with the situations.


In areas prone to dense fog, luminous and fluorescent strips have been painted in OHE (Overhead Equipment) masts, Level Crossings and at busy traffic areas before an approaching “Stop Signal” to warn the loco pilot that the train is approaching a stop signal and running in sensitive areas. The provision of this device has been of great help to the loco pilots who now can spot these luminous strips even during fog and get extra careful regarding the aspect of the approaching signal.


The Safety Department of East Coast Railway headquarters has given instructions to accord highest priority for safe train running during foggy weather. The loco pilots and guards have been instructed to ensure that, they should put the safety of the passengers at the top and should run trains at such reduced speed in foggy weather as they feel confident and comfortable, even if it means loss of punctuality to the train.


In automatic signal territory, the maximum speed of a train is restricted to 30kmph and in Absolute Block territory the speed is restricted to 60kmph in dense fog. Depending o­n the severity of fog, the driver is expected to control the speed of the train and restrict it further if necessary.


Since the safety of the travelling passengers is top most priority,counselling of Station Staff, Loco-pilots & Guards are being conducted to run the trains in the prescribed speed limit and use of flasher lamps during fog to indicate last vehicle.When the loco pilot in his judgment feels that visibility is restricted due to fog, he has been given the authority to run at a speed at which he feels that he can control the train or stop the train whenever required without taking any risk. This speed shall in any case not be more than 60kmph. The loco pilots have also been advised to whistle frequently to warn the nearby gateman and road users of approaching train.

Railway Minister gives directions for “comprehensive training programme” for all employees of Indian Railways to boost productivity & efficiency

This comprehensive training programme is being launched under the name “Project Saksham”.

The week-long training in skills and domain knowledge will be imparted to all the employees of Indian Railways.

The focus of all such training is to ‘make a difference’ to the job performance.

Under the direction of Minister of Railways & Coal, Shri Piyush Goyal, a comprehensive plan for imparting training to all employees of Indian Railways is being prepared with a view to upgrade skill & knowledge. This comprehensive training programme named as “Project Saksham” will help boost productivity and efficiency.

Under this plan, all employees in each zone will be put through a week’s training in skills and knowledge relevant to their work area over next one year. A communication to this effect from Chairman Railway Board, Shri Ashwani Lohani, has been sent to all General Managers of zonal railways and railways production unit.

General Managers have been advised that such priority training need should be quickly identified for each category of employees (employees can be grouped into their work areas) based on the needs of respective zone. Identification of training needs and formulation of planned training calendar will be required to be completed by December 31st, 2017, ensuring that each employee is imparted training.

It has been emphasized that while continuous learning and education/training has been an integral philosophy and approach of the Railways, there is a need to do a concentrated capsule of training for all employees in a short period of time to boost their productivity and efficiency. This training programme will fulfill this need.

With growing rail network, new trains, different high quality services designed by the railways and the promise of the government to deliver superior and safe rail services and growing expectation of our passengers and commuters for better amenities and services, it is imperative that the railway employees rise to the occasion to deliver on the promise. Employees can and do deliver only when they have the right skills, knowledge and the mindset to deliver to the new standards of excellence that the organization hold from them all. This training will help achieve these objectives.

This training shall be a five-day on the job training or as classroom training in Railway Training Centre depending on the nature of training. However, the reporting managers of all employees receiving training will be actively involved in the Pre-training and post training process to ensure that the benefits of training get reflected on the job performance and there is improvement within a short time after the training is imparted. The focus of all such training will be to ‘make a difference’ to the job performance of all departments and employees and thus Indian Railways.

The training, as per the calendar, will be completed within 9 months. General Managers have been directed to personally monitor the completion of the plans and their progress. The zone will also devise a few metrics to monitor the impact of Project Saksham.

This training will not only upgrade skill of each of the employees but also go a long-way in improving the performance of the Indian Railways.

       Addressing the o­n the occasion, Shri Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India said that the close connection and understanding between two countries requires connectivity between the people across the border , Maitree Express and Bandhan Express trains will bring more connectivity between India and Bangladesh and strengthen further bonding.

The Prime Minister also expressed that it is a great privilege for India to become the most trusted partner of Bangladesh for execution & completion of various developmental projects in Bangladesh.

        H.E Seikh Hasina, Prime Minister of Bangladesh expressed her hope for more such initiatives for increasing rail link & connectivity between the two countries. She also expressed her concern about convenience of the passengers of Maitree and Bandhan Express trains with reduced journey time after introduction of International Passenger Rail Terminus with End-to-End Immigration and Customs Clearance Facilities.

        The Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee said that this new Passenger Train link between Kolkata & Khulna will strengthen the relationship between two countries. She expressed happiness o­n introduction of the new train between the two countries & recollected the traditional bonding with Bangladesh.

     



After the introduction of  ‘Maitree Express’ between Kolkata and Dhaka Cantonment stations in April, 2008, the Governments of India and Bangladesh have further decided to run another passenger train viz. Bandhan Express between Kolkata and Khulna through Petrapole & Benapole route to cater to the demands of the people of both the countries for more connectivity.

   The Bandhan Express will be a weekly service o­n every Thursday.
