OFC Laying by Reliance Jio Infocomm in Railway areas – Centre to sort out the issue

Reliance Jio opposes GSM firms’ demand for uniform SUC

Reliance Jio Infocomm had moved HC against demands for allowing their telecom network as a licensee of licence granted by Centre

New Delhi: The Centre has informed the Delhi High Court that it is taking initiatives to resolve the issue concerning laying of optic fibre cables by Reliance Jio Infocomm across railway crossings and network and needs some time to sort it out.

A bench headed by Chief Justice N V Ramana was informed by the Centre that since the matter relates to both telecom and Railway ministries, 15 days time is needed to sort it out.

It also informed the bench that the Centre is taking initiative to resolve the issue.

The matter has now been fixed for February 11.

Reliance Jio Infocomm (formerly known as Infotel Broadband Services Ltd) had moved the high court against the Centre, the Ministry of Railways and the Ministry of Telecom and IT challenging the demands made by Railways for allowing their telecom network as a licensee of the licence granted by the Centre.

It also challenged some circulars issued by the Railway authorities prescribing certain charges for granting permissions to lay optic fibre cables across railway networks.

The petition said Ministry of Railways is not entitled to refuse such permission since the company have statutory right to lay optic fibres by the virtue of the provisions of the Indian Telegraph Act under which it was granted licence for providing telecom services.

It also challenged Railway ministry demanding charges for grant of permission to lay the fibres and said the charges being demanded were exorbitant, discriminatory and arbitrary.

The petition also challenged certain provisions of the Indian Telegraph Act as being ultra-vires.

Modi gives importance to setting up of dedicated National Railway Universities in India

Railways want Quality Manpower – Why cannot we think of dedicated railway universities?

Citing the recent accidents, mismanagement and various other scams, coupled with unprofessional and lackadaisical attitude on safety of trains, BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Mr.Narendra Modi said that there is an urgent need to establish dedicated Railway Universities in all the four regions of India. ”Why cannot we have specialised Railway Universities? Sadly, we have not given importance to Railways and that has resulted to various loopholes in development of a proper rail functioning system in India.

“Whatever Britishers had established, either the meter gauge or broad gauge, single line or double line, we the Indians have only converted them from meter gauge to broad gauge or at best electrified them after independence and nothing more than that. At the time the Britishers were leaving the country, India was having 58,900 route kilometers of Railway track network (excluding the rail network of the then newly formed Pakistan and Bangladesh), whereas today we have expanded it to just 65,000 rkms thus adding 6100 rkms. Britishers could lay 58,900 route kiloketers in a span of 96 years with no means of communication by 1947, no internet, no telephone, no skilled manpower and no heavy transport support systems. Today we have every thing in place, but have achieved no significant milestone and particularly in Railways. See what Japan did with their railways through concept of Bullet Train”, says Modi. ”Railway needs quality manpower. Why cannot we think of dedicated railway universities at at important cities of India? said Modi. Modi gave visionary ideas on railways reforms, setting up rail universities, bullet train quadrilateral and 100 smart cities!

We need to give importance to next generation infrastructure. How can we integrate water and gas grids, optical fibre? Relevant steps will be taken

Trains’ Speed Limit raised to 130 Kmph on Jhajha-Mughalsarai Section

Danapur (DNR): Railways has decided to increase the speed limit to 130kmph on the mainline route on Jhajha-Mughalsarai section under Danapur division of East Central Railway (ECR). Work is going on in full swing to strengthen tracks on this particular route. At present the speed limit is 110kmph on this route for Rajdhani Express, mail and express trains.
According to Danapur DRM N K Gupta, railways successfully carried out a speed trial between Barh and Patna Junction at 120kmph on Friday during ECR GM’s inspection. LHB coaches, which are capable of running at a maximum of 130 kmph, are being used in Rajdhani Express trains, he said, adding increase of the speed limit up to 130kmph would facilitate run of all mail and express trains run at the maximum speed limit on the route.

According to sources, the railways recently carried out a track renewal work on the Mughalsarai-Jhajha section at a huge cost replacing the old ones with 60kg tracks. It has been completed as the mainline section of the division has been declared “Rajdhani route” by the Railway Board. Several pairs of Rajdhani Express and super fast trains are running on the Jhajha-Mughalsarai route. The booked speed limit of the Rajdhani Express is 130kmph. But the Rajdhani Express trains have been currently running at 110kmph between Jhajha and Mughalsarai, sources said adding Sampoorna Kranti Express and Garib Rath are two other fast trains running on this route at the maximum permissible speed.

The DRM said railways would make all possible efforts to increase the speed limit up to 130kmph to reduce the journey time on Patna-Delhi and Patna-Howarh routes in particular. It would help railways clear huge traffic rush on Jhajha-Mughalsarai route too. The division is at present coping with the operational needs of about 160 pairs of trains. Keeping this in mind, an increase in the speed limit up to 130kmph will prove to be a boon for passengers too, he said.

Prime Minister to review North-East Projects with Chief Ministers today

New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will meet the Chief Ministers of all Northastern States here tomorrow to review infrastructure and development projects in the region.

Chief Ministers of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura and Sikkim will meet the Prime Minister to review the ongoing infrastructural and development projects, their progress and the problems being faced by many of them, official sources said.

The Prime Minister, who represents Assam in Rajya Sabha, is expected to stress early completion of the projects, especially those related to road, railway, telecommunication and hydroelectricity.

A number of projects in the North East are facing environmental hurdles, while progress of some are slow due to insurgency problems. Kidnapping for ransom of those involved in implementing infrastructure projects is very common in the region which often hamper their timely completion.

The meeting is likely to pave way for early completion of the major projects which are delayed by many years due to financial constrains.

Chief Ministers like Manik Sarkar of Tripura and Mukul Sangma of Meghalaya are likely to draw the Centre’s attention towards the need to improve border trade with Bangladesh, besides improving connectivity through the neighbouring country.

India has already decided to set up a new railway line between Tripura capital Agartala and Akhaurah in Bangladesh and construct a bridge over river Feni to get access to Chittagong international port, 72 km away from Tripura’s border town Sabroom, 135 km south of Agartala.

Another project, connecting Mizoram through Myanmar’s Kaladan River, is also being implemented but running behind schedule.

The Prime Minister is also likely to take stock of the progress of construction of roads along Sino-Indian border in Arunachal Pradesh.

A Railway Line to connect Wayanad, Kerala with Mysore: Many a Solutions

Railway lines

By T.M. Rasheed, Advocate, Joint Convenor of Mysore-Wayanad Railway Action Council

In 930 AD, emperor Erayappa of Ganga Dynasty led his troops to south west of Mysore – an invasion to the prosperous kingdom he had heard of from traders and Jain monks. Mission accomplished and he called the conquered kingdom ‘Bayalnad’ meaning the land of swamps. After Erayappa, his sons Rachamalla and Battunga fought each other for the new kingdom of their father’s legacy. Rachamalla was killed and Battunga became the undisputed ruler of Bayalnad.

In 12th century AD, Gangas were dethroned from Bayalnad by Kadamba dynasty of North Canara. In 1104 AD Vishnuvardhana of Hoysala invaded Bayalnad followed by Vijayanagara dynasty in 16th century. In 1610 AD Udaiyar Raja Wadiyar of Mysore drove out Vijayanagara General and became the ruler of Bayalnad and the Nilgiris. Bayalnad is the present Wayanad.

When Wayanad was under Tipu Sultan’s rule, the British invasion started. Tussle and turbulent times followed. The British claimed Wayanad under 1792 treaty of Srirangapatna citing it was part of Malabar. Tipu Sultan went in appeal before the Governor General. Considering his arguments, relying on the successive Karnatic rule for centuries in Wayanad and its geographical detachment from Malabar, in 1798, Governor General Lord Mornington declared by proclamation that Wayanad had not been ceded to the East India Company by the treaty of 1792.

Consequently the British troops withdrew from Wayanad conceding to Tipu’s rule. In 1799, after the fall of Sultan, the British handed over Wayanad by treaty of 1799 to the Raja of Mysore. But by a supplementary treaty dated 29th December 1803 the East India Company repossessed Wayanad and thereafter administrated by Col. Arthur Wellesley from Srirangapatna. Any how Wayanad eventually became part of Kerala despite its geographical delimitations and political descent in 1956 on State’s reorganisation. Even now there is a considerable Kannada speaking population and the reminiscence of centuries old Karnatic rule is omnipresent in Wayanad.

A rail line to connect Wayanad with Mysore was first proposed in Mysore People’s Council in 1880. The Mysore administration report of 1891-93 proves that a survey was conducted for this line in 1892. Even though surveys were conducted in 1906 and during 1916-17 also by the Mysore government for a rail line to connect Mysore to Kerala (Malabar) through Wayanad, the same could not be materialised. During 1921, the Railway Board deputed Chief Engineer Sir John Izzat to prepare a report on new railway lines required in south India and its order of urgency. He recommended 26 new lines of which 12th priority was Nanjangud-Wayanad-Nilambur-Shornoor line. Based on this report, in 1924, the Railway authorities conducted a detailed survey named as ‘Mysore-Wayanad Project’ as per gazette of India notification No. 823P dated 29-8-1923. Even though the Shornoor-Nilambur portion of rail line was completed in 1927 itself and 25 other lines were materialised, still the Nilambur-Nanjangud portion is yet to be linked.

Fortunately, now the political and commercial leadership of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu are realising this missing link. Not only would this connect the three States but also help in the development of a large region comprising of Mysore, Chamarajanagar, Kodagu, Wayanad, Kannur, Kozhikode, Malappuram and the Nilgiris districts in the three States and would accelerate trade, commerce and agriculture in this area having a population of more than 2 crores. This line would provide a face lift to the city of Mysore and provide a direct connectivity to Kerala within 1 hour and to the port city Kochi in 6 hours. This line would be the shortest route to Bangalore and North India from Kerala so that all the trains plying to Kerala from Bangalore and beyond would be rerouted through Mysore.

The NRI rich Kerala is the single largest consumer market in India. But thanks to the State’s peculiar political climate, no new industries are possible there. Those who want to invest at present are left with no option but to cumulate their deposit in banks. A railway line would provide them with an option to invest in the nearby yet investment friendly Mysore. More investment in industries means more employment opportunities and growth. Mysore is the favourite tourism destination of Kerala and a direct line would further promote the tourism and allied industry. The farmers of Chamarajanagar and Mysore would be the foremost beneficiaries of this railway line which provides cheap and fast connectivity to Kerala markets. The health care and educational institutions in Mysore will be rejuvenated by extending their reach to the people of Wayanad and Nilgiris.

A new railway zone for south India is under active consideration for a long time. If Kerala is linked directly from Mysore by incorporating Mysore, Palakkad, Thiruvananthapuram divisions and Manglore area as a new railway zone with Mysore as its headquarters could be created which would help the future railway developments of this area in a big way.

Presently, Kerala is suffering from acute manual labour shortage. More than 25 lakh employees from other States are working in Kerala’s unorganised sector and are getting better wages. A large number of casual labourers from Chamarajanagar and Mysore districts are working in Wayanad. This line would provide better employment opportunities for the marginalised people in Karnataka.

Wayanad and Nilgiri districts have considerable NRI population. But their nearest airport is 4 hours away, at Calicut. Since this line would connect Wayanad with Mysore in one hour, connection to gulf flights from Trivandrum, Cochin and Calicut are feasible from Mysore airports. Wayanad and The Nilgiris districts have no large cities. So Mysore will become their favourite trade and commerce destination through the rail connectivity.

Environmental apprehensions

The hue and cry by environmental activists against this railway line alleging that this line may prove fatal to wildlife is baseless. At present, four Highways including two NH’s are leading from Wayanad and Nilgiris to Mysore crossing the contiguous Bandipur, Nagarhole, Mudumalai National Parks and Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary. All together, these Highways are crossing 136 kms in forests. Since the movement of vehicles in banned on these Highways in the night as per the orders from Karnataka High Court, as a consequence, the day time traffic is increasing. Since NH 212 and 67 are important National Highways connecting 3 states, ban on vehicular movement in the night has affected heavily on tourism, trade and commerce and also inconveniencing the commuters.

Railways are the most environmental friendly conveyance in the world. Studies show that when one train passes, 400 motor vehicles would be kept away from the roads. The proposed railway line is centrally located to above mentioned Highways. So thousands of motor vehicles presently plying on these roads daily could be eliminated by constructing this railway line. This will lead to reduction in emission and pollution and also the gain of considerable carbon credit.

The proposed railway line is to pass just 10 kms through the Bandipur National Park. The Railways proposes to draw the line through over bridges in this area, so that the line would not cause any wildlife casualty. The animals would soon get accustomed with the passing of trains. Even wild animals have some sense to avoid dangers from vehicles.

The records available with Bandipur National Park authorities prove that during the last 12 years only 14 animals were killed by vehicle accidents on NH 212, whereas, 56 animals were killed by hunters and poachers during that period.

The Nanjangud-Nilambur railway line, would reduce vehicle traffic and human intervention in forest area and is the best method to conserve the Bandipur National Park and the adjacent forests.

Ro-Ro services also can be introduced in this line and the trucks passing through all four Highways in these forests shall compulsorily be carried through Ro-Ro. A tunnel in a forest stretch can also be considered.

When solutions are there it is not fair to languish anger against this railway line by a fundamental environmental approach which will be against the long cherished aspiration of the people of three States. The people living around forests are loving and protecting the forests than those who are preaching it through media. Based on bogus allegations and denying basic amenities under the guises of wildlife protection and sabotaging these projects will invite anger from people against forests and wildlife which may in turn effect even the existence of forests adversely.

This railway line helping development of a vast area, connecting three States and promoting national integration, bringing the tribal dominated backward districts into mainstream, promoting trade, commerce, tourism and agriculture, connecting Mysore with a major port and container terminal, bringing back old ties of Wayanad and Nilgiris with Mysore, brightening prospects for a railway zone in Mysore, providing large scale employment opportunities and also help in environmental protection is the need of the hour which history compels and the future demands. So let us unite cutting across State barriers and languages for materialising the long pending Nanjangud-Sulthan Bathery-Nilambur railway line.

Vadodara to finally get its new railway flyovers

Vadodara is all set to get the two long-awaited crucial railway over-bridges that would bring the expanding city closer. The Kalali ROB and the Dandia Bazar-Akota flyovers are nearing their completion in the near future. While VMC officials say that the Kalali ROB will be ready for inauguration within a week, the Akota bridge is expected to be ready by mid-February. Ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the BJP-administered VMC has requested Chief Minister Narendra Modi to inaugurate the ROBs, along with a list of other corporation projects. After four years of wait, Vadodara will finally get its ROB, connecting Kalali, Makarpura and Old Padra Road and reducing the commuting time to areas where the city is now expanding. Although Chief Minister Narendra Modi has promised to arrive in the city for the formal inauguration, VMC says that the ROB will be thrown open for public use the moment it is ready. Standing Committee Chairman of the Vadodara Municipal Corporation Dr Hitendra Patel said, “The lighting work is pending on the Kalali ROB, which will be completed within a matter of days. We will open the ROB for the public shortly, as the CM is busy right now and we cannot keep the ROB shut and inconvenience the people. We will have a formal inauguration later.” The VMC has also planned the inauguration of the Manjalpur sports stadium, the newly-constructed bus depot as well as a hospital in Gotri, at the hands of Modi at one go. Patel said, “The total cost of the four projects is Rs 120 crores. They are remarkable projects and the CM is expected to give us a date within 15 days. The Akota-Dandia Bazar ROB, however, will take another two months to be completed as the Railways is handling the portion that has to be constructed over the rail lines because it involves shifting of some high tension wires.” The VMC has also begun beautification of the circles that will stand at the ends of the Kalali flyover.
