रेलवे की नई एप से नहीं चुकाना पड़ेगा एक्स्ट्रा किराया RailYatri.in launched a new app 'Fare Calculator'

राजधानी, शताब्दी और प्रीमियम ट्रेनों के किरायों में भोजन आदि के मद में लिए जाने वाले शुल्कों की जांच के लिए एक सोशल एप्लीकेशन आधारित "फेयर कैलकुलेटर" एप आया है। टेक्नोलॉजी क्षेत्र की प्रमुख कंपनी "रेलयात्रीडॉटइन" ने यह एप विकसित किया है। रेलयात्रीडॉटइन रेलवे की यात्रियों से जुड़ी सभी जानकारियां उपलब्ध कराती है। इस एप की मदद से यात्री को किराए में बेसिक किराया, आरक्षण शुल्क, सुपरफास्ट अधिभार और कैटरिंग प्रभार अलग-अलग दिखाया जाता है। 

कैटरिंग प्रभार में सुबह की चाय, नाश्ता, दोपहर के खाने, शाम की चाय और रात के भोजन का अलग-अलग शुल्क भी बताया जाता है। इससे यात्री यह गणना करके जान सक ते हैं कि जितना शुल्क उनसे लिया जा रहा है, वो कहीं अधिक तो नहीं है। इस एप के मेन मेन्यू में फेयर कैलकुलेटर चुनकर उसमें ट्रेन का नंबर भरने से गाड़ी का ठहराव, कि राया और उसका विवरण जाना जा सकता है। कंपनी के अधिकारियों के मुताबिक कई राजधानी एक्सप्रेस, शताब्दी गाडियों में भोजन शुल्कों में भारी विसंगतियां हैं, लेकिन उनके विवरण के अभाव में कोई ना तो इसे जान पाता है और ना ही शिकायत कर पाता है। 

कंपनी ने उदाहरण दिया कि 12431 तिरूवनंतपुरम नई दिल्ली राजधानी एक्सप्रेस में तिरूवनंतपुरम से वडोदरा तक के किराए में सुबह के नाश्ते की कीमत जोड़ी गई है जबकि गाड़ी के वडोदरा पहुंचने का वक्त तड़के साढे तीन बजे है। इसी प्रकार 12001 भोपाल नई दिल्ली शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस को जब से हबीबगंज स्टेशन से चलाना शुरू किया गया है तब से झांसी और ललितपुर के यात्रियों के लिए शाम की चाय देना अचानक बंद कर दिया गया है, लेकिन किराया पूर्ववत लिया जा रहा है।

Committee demands early start to survey

The South Western Railway Zonal Railway Passengers Welfare Committee has appealed to the South Western Railway General Manager Pradeep Saxena to take up a preliminary survey of the Harapanhalli – Gadag railway line that was announced in the previous railway budget.

In a press release here on Sunday, committee general secretary Rohit Jain has said that the line between Harapanhalli and Gadag was declared by the then Railway Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda to help reduce the distance and time between Bengaluru/Davangere to Gadag, Bagalakote and Vijayapura considerably. The current distance between Davangere and Vijayapura is 393 km via Gadag and Hubballi. But with the new line the distance will be 330 km from Vijayapura to Davangere.
