Kochi: Despite heavy rains and other obstructions, the works of the Rs 5,537 crore Kochi Metro Rail project are fast progressing and inching towards completion. While it took six years to complete the first 10-km stretch of the recently inaugurated Chennai Metro, the 18-km stretch of the Kochi Metro from Aluva to Maharaja’s will be ready in three years, by June, 2016, which will be a national record.
“More than 70 per cent of civil works along reach one — the Aluva -Maharaja’s corridor — has been completed. Despite the delays in land acquisition, adverse climate and other obstructions, the works are being carried out as per schedule,” said sources at Delhi Metro Rail Corporation.
Mumbai: Tata Projects-led consortium has bagged the contract for two phases of Dedicated Freight Corridor (Western Region) for a stretch of 300 km beating others in a competitive bidding. The company has received the final letter from the government to start the work on the project.
The project would help India to have an infrastructure to run rail freight at more than 100 km per hour with 32.5 tonne axle load capacity of the tracks. This is on par with the best in the US, Russia and China. At present, the freight runs on passenger tracks with axle load bearing capacity of 22.5 tonnes.
The Global Traction Transformer Market 2015-2019, a new industry report says an increased implementation of high-speed lines is the one of the latest trend and market driver. Research Beam adds a report titled “Traction Transformer Market in APAC 2015-2019” that provides detailed information of the Traction Transformer
The Global Traction Transformer Market 2015-2019 report analyst says vendors are in the process of manufacturing more efficient traction transformers to differentiate their products from competitors. For instance, ABB, a major player in the global traction transformer market, has developed a traction transformer, PETT, which uses power electronics instead of the conventional inverter and transformer combination. This makes it more energy efficient compared to conventional transformers. Many other vendors are shifting their focus to lighter, smaller, and more efficient transformers. The growth of the market is directly proportional to the increase in adoption of electric trains worldwide. Rising fossil fuel prices and greater concern over air pollution have encouraged more countries to opt for electric trains, discarding diesel locomotives.
With the Indian Railways looking to overhaul its networks, analysts see greater business emerging in Infrastructure, Communications, Rolling Stock, Safety, Services & Products. However the trends to win the Bids by certain OEMs encountered by the nominated members of the Tender Committee Proceedings were aghast on the pattern, however to remain lip locked due to the framework and the rules
In a tender for 2015-16 in which Technical and Financial Bids were opened, the L1 price quoted by one large but new company for BOXNHL Wagon was Rs.10.80 Lakh, whereas the aggregate cost of materials alone for the said wagon is around Rs.13 Lakh. Adding to it the conversion cost including labour, consumables, power, finance charges, and other overheads, the cost (without profit) would be substantially higher. The department has just come out with one order, but in an unprecedented development, almost all the major wagon makers have refused to produce the wagons for the price quoted by L1 manufacturer. The industry has described the price as predatory as it is even below cost of material.
Shanghai: China is competing with Germany’s Siemens AG, Canada’s Bombardier Inc and Japan’s Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd for global rail contracts – the same companies that helped it build a high-speed rail network that is now the world’s longest at 16,000 kilometres.
China began testing the first bullet train completely made from locally produced parts this week as part of a big government-led push to export railway technology.
China is also home to the world’s largest train maker by sales, CRRC Corp Ltd , which was formed when the government merged its two biggest train makers in June.
Renowned Thai Economist and Dy.Prime Minister of Thailand Mr.Rajawongse Pridiyathorana Devakula
China is “one to two years” ahead of Japan in helping Thailand upgrade its outdated rail network, Thai deputy Prime Minister Pridiyathorn Devakula said in Hong Kong on Thursday.
He denied reports that a Japan-backed project is to be the country’s first high-speed rail line, and noted Thailand is a “small country” which has to be friendly to both China and Japan.
“Japan hadn’t said that they will do high-speed or medium-speed yet. We always say ‘up to high speed’,” he said, noting Japan will do a feasibility study before deciding the speed with Bangkok.

Puri: Railway engineers conducted trial run on the Puri-Khurda Road track on Wednesday. Double-tracking of Puri-Khurda Road was completed recently. Necessary safety certificate was issued by the safety engineers after the trial run allowing the authorities to commence regular train service on the new tracks. The 44 kms distance covers upto Sakhigopal and 18 kms line was laid on war-footing keeping in view the Nabakalebara of the deities during which about 30 lakh devotees are expected to attend.
Puri-Durg and Puri-Ahmedabad trains would run on the new tracks, informed station manager. However East Coast Railway (ECoR) authorities has extended schedule adjustments of trains running on the route up to July 2 because of the ongoing line doubling work between Sakhigopal and Puri railway station. As a result, some of the trains will be short terminated at Khurda Road and Cuttack and cancelled to and from Puri.
Thiruvananthapuram (TVC): The Kerala Finance Department has opposed the financing model mooted by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. to approach Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to fund the Rs.6,728 crore Light Metro for Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode with Special Terms for Economic Partnership (STEP) loan.
The Finance Department warned the Public Works Department (PWD) that agreeing to the procurement conditions for goods and services specified for JICA STEP loan would mean that the State would have to “purchase a sizable portion of the equipment from Japanese firms.” “For a major project of this nature, the dangers of agreeing to such a condition are evident. The State loses substantial control over prices and even quality and would be limited in its choices in selection, inviting price rigging, and potentially corrupt practices,” the Finance Department said.
Reluctance of UP, Bihar and WB to avail Subsidized Foodgrains from FCI inflicts a loss of Rs.300 Crore to IR
New Delhi: Reluctance of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and West Bengal to avail subsidized foodgrains from the Food Corporation of India (FCI) has put the railways in a spot.
The national transporter is suffering a loss of around Rs 90 crore every month as FCI has drastically cut down the loading of foodgrains after the three states reduced off-take, sources said.
The substantial cut in loading target is due to the food ministry and FCI’s failure to take up the issue with the these states, which have the maximum number of poor and have been the biggest taker of subsidized foodgrains, said a top government source.

Central Government Employees DA from July 2015 will be based on our calculations given below – All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) for May 2015 released by Labour Bureau – Two Point increase in AIPCI(IW)
DA from July 2015 – As estimated and posted through our earlier posts, Dearness Allowance for Cental Government Employees with effect from July 2015 will be increased by 6% thanks to two point increase in All India CPI (IW) for May 2015.
Except CPI for June-2015, all data for calculation of Dearness Allowance from July 2015 areavailable now.
|Jun-2015||To be released|
Now AICPIN for the month of June remains for the DA of JULY-2015, We have to take the assumed value for CPI-IW only for June 2015. It is found that even for increase of 6 points in June 2015 from the existing CPI of 258, DA from July 2015 will be 119%. Only when CPI is increased to 265 from the existing level of 258, DA from July 2015 will be increased to 120%.
|DA from Jul 2015=||[(252+253+253+253+253+253+254+253+254+256+258+265)-115.76]*100/115.76|
|=||120% (7% increase in DA from July 2015)|
On the lower side, we found that only when Consumer Price Index fell down to 250 i.e when CPI (IW) is getting decreased by 8 Points, Central Government Employees DA from July 2015 will be fixed at 118%.
|DA from Jul 2015=||[(252+253+253+253+253+253+254+253+254+256+258+250)-115.76]*100/115.76|
|=||118 % (5% increase in DA from July 2015)|
From the above, it is clear that chances for decrease of 8 Points in CPI in a single month or increase of 7 points in same period are very remote. So, we can very well conclude that DA from July 2015 will be 119%.
