अब रात १.३० बजे के बाद भी हो सकेगा रिजर्वेशन

जोन के 6 बड़े रेलवे स्टेशनों में रिजर्वेशन की सुविधा आधी रात के बाद भी मिलने लगेगी। रेल प्रशासन बिलासपुर, रायगढ़, रायपुर, दुर्ग, गोंदिया और इतवारी रेलवे स्टेशन में रात 1:30 बजे से रिजर्वेशन की सुविधा देने जा रहा है। इसके लिए रिजर्वेशन काउंटर ((पीआरएस)) के बजाय जनरल टिकट काउंटर ((यूटीएस)) का इस्तेमाल किया जाएगा। 
जोन के इन 6 बड़े स्टेशनों में रिजर्वेशन काउंटर सुबह 8 से रात 10 बजे तक खोले जा रहे हैं। 
चीफ कमर्शियल मैनेजर ((सीसीएम)) प्रकाश राव वाजलवार ने बिलासपुर, रायपुर और नागपुर डिवीजन के रेलवे मैनेजर को पत्र लिखते हुए नई व्यवस्था को अविलंब शुरू करने के निर्देश दिए हैं। नई व्यवस्था में यात्रियों को रिजर्वेशन की सुविधा आधी रात के बाद यानी रात 1:30 बजे से मिलने लगेगी। ऐसा नहीं है कि रिजर्वेशन काउंटर निरंतर खुले रहेंगे। काउंटर रात 10 बजे बंद हो जाएंगे। इसके बाद रात 1:30 बजे से रिजर्वेशन की सुविधा तय किए गए जनरल टिकट काउंटर पर ही मिलेगी। तीनों डिवीजन को यूटीएस का काउंटर तय करने और सुविधा लागू करने के निर्देश दिए गए हैं।

Hi-Tech Coaches for Purusottam

In its bid to improve the quality of travelling for passengers, the East Coast Railway has introduced Linke Holfman Bush (LHB) coaches in Purusottam Express beginning Sunday.

Purusottam Express will now run with 22 coaches, which will be hi-tech and have better shock-absorbers and low noise levels. The coaches will have anti-mounting mechanism to prevent mounting of coaches over another coach in case of derailment and reduce damage.

The ECoR sources said the disc brake system of the LHB coaches ensures effective application of brakes with less response time and space. As against the noise level of 100 decibels in conventional coaches, LHB coaches generate just 60 decibels providing a more comfortable experience to the travelling public.

The horizontal as well as vertical shock absorbers also reduce the jerk level considerably. Purusottam Express comprises 12 sleeper class coaches, four AC 3-tier coaches, one AC 2-tier coach and two general second class coaches.
