Book your train ticket, ask for meals from restaurants

MUMBAI: Passengers who travel by long-distance trains will be able to relish food from a restaurant of their choice along the route as the Indian Railways would soon introduce e-catering facility to improve the travel experience. As of now, commuters have the option of buying food from the pantry car or unauthorized vendors.

Railway Board member (traffic) D P Pandey said, "We plan to introduce this facility as a pilot project in two trains, including the Mumbai-Delhi Paschim Express. The order can be booked through Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation."

The Indian Railways has drawn a lot of flak for catering because of the pantry car operator's tendency to fleece people on quantity as well as quality. The introduction of e-catering facility through participation of private food outlets will spur competition and lead to improvement in service and quality of food offered by the pantry car contractor, officials said.

Under the system, a passenger will have to provide his travel details, select the city and the food outlet from which he would like to order the food. A menu card will also be provided on the website.

A senior WR official said, "There will be a cut-off time before which the person can order the food from a particular restaurant. For example, it will be mentioned that food from this restaurant has to be ordered at least one hour before the train's arrival at the station."

रेल रोको अभियान 24 को

पठानकोट : शिवसेना पंजाब व हिंदू सुरक्षा समिति की संयुक्त बैठक जिला अध्यक्ष रवि शर्मा तथा सुरेंद्र मन्हास की अध्यक्षता में हुई। बैठक में मलेरकोटला में हुए गोहत्या की कड़े शब्दों में निंदा की गई। इस मौके पर सर्वसम्मति से निर्णय लिया गया प्रदेश भर में 24 सितंबर को रेल रोको आंदोलन किया जाएगा। दोनों संगठनों के अध्यक्षता में पठानकोट कैंट स्टेशन पर सुबह 10 बजे से दोपहर 12 बजे तक रेल सेवा को बाधित किया जाएगा। उन्होंने कहा कि हिंदू संगठनों की ओर से बार-बार गायों की सुरक्षा के लिए आवाज बुलंद किया जाता है लेकिन केंद्र व राज्य सरकार को इस मुद्दे पर सख्त कदम नहीं उठाती है। मलेरकोटला में पहले भी गायों से भरे कैंटर मिलना, वर्तमान में गायों का अवशेष मिलना और उन पर तेजाब फेकना सोची समझी साजिश है। पंजाब में हिंदू संगठन इस बात को कताई बर्दास्त नहीं करेगें। उन्होंने कहा कि पूरे प्रदेश के हिंदू संगठन इस नाजुक पल में मलेरकोटला साथियों के साथ कंधा से कंधा मिलाकर खड़े हैं। इस मौके पर अनिल तारा, विनोद शर्मा, राकेश बब्बू, रमन, सजीव कुमार, गोरव शर्मा, प्रदीप शर्मा, राजीव मनहास, विक्रम सिंह व अन्य मौजूद थे।

सौर ऊर्जा से रोशन होंगे रेलवे ऑफिस व स्टेशन

Railway office and station will be eletrified using solar lights
रायपुर। रेलवे की इमारतें, स्टेशन और लेवल क्रॉसिंग सौर ऊर्जा से रोशन होंगे। रेल मंत्रालय ने इस संबंध में विस्तृत कार्ययोजना तैयार की है। पहले चरण में देश के 200 स्टेशनों और दो हजार लेवल क्रॉसिंग गेट पर सोलर पैनल लगाने की योजना है। रेल मंत्रालय ने इस संबंध में सर्कुलर जारी कर सभी रेल मंडलों को कार्ययोजना पर अमल करने का निर्देश दिया है। कोयले की कमी और लगातार गहराते बिजली संकट को ध्यान में रखकर अब रेलवे अपारंपरिक ऊर्जा स्रोत के उपयोग की तैयारी कर रहा है। इसके लिए रेलवे ने देशभर के स्टेशनों पर 8.8 मेगावॉट के सोलर पॉवर प्लांट स्थापित करने का निर्णय लिया है। इसके जरिए बिजली की सुविधा से वंचित रेलवे स्टेशनों और लेवल क्र ॉसिंग को प्रमुखता से रोशन करने की तैयारी है। हालांकि, धीरे-धीरे पूरे देश में रेलवे की इमारतों और स्टेशनों पर रोशनी की व्यवस्था सौर ऊर्जा से की जाएगी।

पीपीपी मोड में होगा विकास

रेलवे की इमारतों और स्टेशन के छतों पर सोलर पैनल लगाने की तैयारी है। इसके लिए पीपीपी मोड पर सोलर पैनल लगाने की कार्ययोजना तैयार की गई है। पहले चरण में 21 रेलवे ऑफिस बिल्डिंग, 200 स्टेशन और 2000 लेवल क्रॉसिंग को रोशन किया जाएगा। हालांकि, दक्षिण पूर्व मध्य रेलवे के कुछ स्टेशनों पर पहले से ही अपारंपरिक ऊर्जा स्रोत का उपयोग किया जा रहा है।

रायपुर स्टेशन और कुछ अन्य स्टेशनों पर पहले से ही अपारंपरिक ऊर्जा स्त्रोत का उपयोग किया जा रहा है। आने वाले समय में अपारंपरिक ऊर्जा स्त्रोत को ज्यादा से ज्यादा उपयोग करने की योजना है।
