रोजाना 8 लाख ई टिकट बेचेगा रेलवे

नई दिल्लीः रेलवे ने ई-टिकटों की बढ़ती मांग को देखते हुए ऑनलाइन बुकिंग की रोजाना सीमा बढ़ाने का फैसला किया है. अगले चार महीने में इसे चार लाख करने की योजना है. अभी प्रतिदिन 3.5 लाख टिकटों की ऑनलाइन बुकिंग होती है. चार महीने बाद रेलवे इसे बढ़ाकर आठ लाख करना चाहता है.
रेलवे राज्य मंत्री के एच मुनियप्पा ने बताया कि आइआरसीटीसी, सेंटर फॉर रेलवे इंफॉर्मेशन सिस्टम (सीआरआइएस) और रेलवे का आइटी विभाग मिलकर इस दिशा में काम कर रहे हैं. रोजाना औसतन 15 लाख टिकट बेचे जाते हैं. इनकी बिक्री 8838 रेलवे रिजर्वेशन काउंटरों और ई-टिकट वेबसाइट आइआरसीटीसी के जरिये होती है. इसमें से तत्काल टिकट करीब 1.70 लाख होते हैं.
दलालों द्वारा टिकट बेचने और काला बाजारी की रोकथाम को लेकर रेलवे ने बीते दिनों कई कदम उठाए हैं. रेलवे बोर्ड के साथ बैठक में मुनियप्पा ने इन कदमों की समीक्षा की. बैठक के बाद मुनियप्पा ने कहा कि आकस्मिक जांच के दौरान दलालों के साथ मिलीभगत में 170 अधिकारियों की पहचान की गई है. 102 के खिलाफ कार्रवाई की गई है. तत्काल स्कीम में हो रहे दुरुपयोग को देखते हुए ही इसके लिए बुकिंग का समय सुबह आठ बजे के बजाय दस बजे किया गया है. रेलवे मंत्रालय के सूत्रों का कहना है कि दलालों पर अंकुश लगाने के लिए रेलवे सुरक्षा बल कानून में भी संशोधन पर विचार हो रहा है. इसमें और सख्ती लाई जाएगी. अभी इसके उल्लंघन पर दस हजार रुपये जुर्माना या तीन साल की जेल है.

Secunderabad and Visakhapatnam Duronto’ launch put off again

Fresh date will be announced soon, says South Central Railway
The Railways have once again let down the local people by postponing the launch of the Duronto tri-weekly AC Express between Secunderabad and Visakhapatnam. The South Central Railway (SCR) earlier announced that the train would be flagged off at Secunderabad on Friday (July 6) but issued a statement on Wednesday that the launch was postponed, without assigning any reason for the same.
They, however, noted that the revised date of introduction would be notified in due course, and promised full refund to passengers, who have already booked their tickets, upon cancellation of their tickets.
It may be recalled that the Secunderabad-Visakhapatnam Duronto was announced in the 2011 budget and was supposed to have been introduced much before April this year. The train number and timings of the tri-weekly Secunderabad -Visakhapatnam AC Duronto were announced about a year ago.
This had kindled the hopes of passengers of the region who are looking for a super-fast AC express as the originating trains from Visakhapatnam to the State capital are almost always full.
It had been announced that the non-stop train will cover the distance of 701 km in 9 hours and 25 minutes, making it the fastest train between the two cities.
The launch was postponed from time to time on the plea of non-availability of rake.
Finally after a long wait the Railways had allotted ‘overused’ rake of Rajdhani Express a few months ago for Duronto. The old coaches were given a major overhaul and finally the date of the inaugural run on July 6 was announced by SCR.
It was announced that the train would commence regular services from Secunderabad on July 9 and from Visakhapatnam on July 8.
The undue delay in the launch of the train was attributed to the non-availability of coaches so far. It’s learnt that the launch was postponed due to non-availability of a VIP, who was supposed to flag-off the train. It’s high time that greater importance was given to the needs of passengers rather than satisfying those in power.
