e-toilets to come up at Tripunithura Railway Station


The Tripunithura Railway Station may soon be able to boast of e-toilets, the first in the district. The e-toilets will be constructed using the funds of P Rajeev MP.

“Many such toilets have been installed at various schools in the district. A part of the fund will be set aside for an e-toilet at the railway station,” P Rajeev said.

He was speaking to reporters during his visit to the Tripunithura Railway station along with Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) Rajesh Agarwal on Saturday.

A proposal to start ‘she-toilet, exclusively for women, has also been mooted. The she-toilet facility will consist of a sanitary-napkin vending machine and an incinerator for destroying the used napkins.

e-toilets a Relief

The decision to set up the high-technology e-toilet will be a relief to the passengers at Tripunithura which lacks proper toilet facility at the station.

According to the members of the Tripunithura Rajanagiri Union of Residents Associations (TRURA) and EDRAACH, the toilet facilities at the upper class waiting room are always unavailable to the common people.

“The Railway officials say that they are forced to shut the doors to the upper class room owing to its misuse. A person who has to use the toilet has to approach the station master for the keys,” TRURA chairman V P Prasad said.

Staff Shortage

Considering the memorandum submitted by TRURA and other associations on the lack of personnel to issue tickets at the station, DRM Rajesh Agarwal said the working timings of the Railway staff will be adjusted to make their services available to more passengers.

According to the TRURA chairman, there are no clerks at the station between 9 pm and 6 am.

Hence, the station master is burdened with a lot of work, including issuing of tickets to passengers who wish to board the Jayanthi Janatha Express and Vanchinad Express. “The station master has to do his duties as well as assume the role of a ticket clerk which is extremely burdening. The passengers are thus forced to travel without tickets,” he added. Meanwhile, Rajesh Agarwal said extra staff cannot be appointed at the station consideration its low patronage. “However, the timings will be changed from 6 am to 5 am making it more beneficial for the public,” Rajesh Agarwal said.

Unkept Promises

TRURA members said that despite the promises made by Ernakulam MP and Union Minister K V Thomas, Parasuram Express has not yet been alloted a stop at the station. However, Rajeev said steps are being taken in this regard. “The decision is with the Railway Board. We are pressuring the board for the same.”, he said.

DRM Rajesh Agarwal said steps will be taken to address the issue.

ट्रेन लेट तो मोबाइल पर आएगा मैसेज



इंदौर/रतलाम  अगर आपकी ट्रेन लेट है तो उसका एसएमएस मोबाइल पर आ जाएगा। रेलवे अपने मोबाइल एप्स में ये व्यवस्था शुरू करने वाली है। इसके जुलाई तक शुरू होने की संभावना है। रेलवे सीआरआईएस (सेंटर ऑफ रेलवे इन्फॉर्मेशन सिस्टम) स्मार्ट फोन एप्प पर वर्किंग कर रही है। ये पैसेंजर को ट्रेन का रियल टाइम उपलब्ध कराएगा। मैसेज से अगले स्टेशन का संभावित समय भी मिलेगा। ये एप्प रेल राडार नामक वेबसाइट के जरिये इन्फॉर्मेशन लेगा।
कैसे लेंगे सुविधा : स्मार्ट (एंड्रॉयड) फोन के जरिये संबंधित ट्रेन का समय, करंट लोकेशन, किसी स्टेशन पर ट्रेन पहुंचने का समय, सीट की स्थिति सहित कई जानकारी एसएमएस के जरिये ले सकेंगे।

ये फायदे होंगे

ट्रेन लेट होने का पता चल जाने से स्टेशन पर इंतजार नहीं करना पड़ेगा। यात्रा खत्म होने के पहले ही पता चल जाएगा कि कितने समय बाद आपका स्टेशन आएगा। ऐसे में रात में बेफिक्र होकर सो सकेंगे। स्टेशन छूट जाने की चिंता नहीं रहेगी। करंट लोकेशन के आधार पर ट्रेन के देरी या समय से चलने की स्थिति स्पष्ट हो जाएगी। ऐसे में दूसरी ट्रेन से यात्रा का विकल्प भी चुन सकेंगे। यात्री समय पर स्टेशन पहुंचेंगे, प्लेटफॉर्म पर भीड़ कम होगी। 

जल्दी शुरू होगी सुविधा

रेलवे मोबाइल एप्स पर सुविधाएं जुटाने की तैयारी कर रहा है। एसएमएस अलर्ट की सुविधा भी जल्द ही शुरू होगी।
