मालगाड़ियों की भी समय सारिणी बनाएगी भारतीय रेल

नई दिल्ली : भारतीय रेलवे मालगाड़ियों के आवागमन की भी समय सारिणी बनाएगी ताकि आपूर्ति में सुधार करते हुए ढुलाई के लिए अधिक से अधिक माल आकर्षित किया जा सके। रेलवे पहली बार इस तरह की समय सारिणी बनाने जा रही है।

मौजूदा व्यवस्था के तहत देश भर में व्यस्त रेललाइनों पर मालगाड़ियों के बजाय यात्री रेलगाड़ियों को वरीयता दी जाती है। यही कारण है कि सामान की आपूर्ति को लेकर अनिश्चिता बनी रहती है और इसमें देरी भी होती है। डेडीकेटेड फ्रेट कॉरीडोर कॉरपोरेशन (डीएफसीसी) के प्रबंध निदेशक आदेश शर्मा ने कहा कि रेल लाइनों पर भीड़ भाड़ के कारण मालगाड़ियों को लूप लाइनों पर रखा जाता है ताकि यात्री गाड़ियों को रास्ता दिया जा सके।

उल्लेखनीय है कि डीएफसीसी एक विशेष कंपनी है जिसकी स्थापना देश में माल परिवहन के समर्पितत गलियारों के निर्माण, रखरखाव व परिचालन के लिए की गई। डीएफसीसी इस समय विशेष तौर पर माल के परिवहन के लिये दो कारीडोर वेस्टर्न डीएफसी व ईस्टर्न डीएफसी बना रही है।

शर्मा ने कहा, ‘जब ये दो गलियारे पूरे हो जाएंगे तो हम माल परिवहन को सड़क मार्ग से रेल मार्ग पर लाने में सक्षम होंगे। इसके साथ ही हम माल गाड़ियों के लिए समयसारिणी भी लाएंगे।’ एक समय था जब रेलवे कुल माल परिवहन में से 80 प्रतिशत ढुलाई करती थी लेकिन समय के साथ उसका यह हिस्सा कम होकर 36 प्रतिशत रह गया। माल का परिवहन सड़क मार्ग में बढ़ता चला गया।

Suresh Prabhu will appraise financial health of railways every three months

MUMBAI: Suresh Prabhu will appraise you of the financial health of railways every three months. Prabhu, Minister Indian Railways, told a gathering of financial market representatives at the BSE on Friday evening that he will make it a norm to announce quarterly results for railways from now. This is the first time that railways will deviate from its norm of giving out key numbers only during its annual budget event.

A brimming Prabhu told his audience that railways this time was not just meeting targets for the first quarter but exceeding them. He said he was expecting that the next big wave of investment in the country after power and telecom to be in railways. The event at BSE was a closed door meeting and invitations were sent by the railway ministry officials. Invitees included representatives of top insurance companies, investment banks, brokers and foreign institutional investors.

“Quarterly numbers from railways is better than annual budget, which is an anomaly and a hang-over of the British raj,” said Vinayak Chatterjee, Chairman, Feedback Infra. “However, quarterly numbers would be effective if it comprises operating numbers, capex and review of other special initiatives like installing bio-toilets and update on various schemes and so on.”

A presentation by Prabhu at the event showed that total earning for Indian Railways for the first quarter ended June were up 14.54% compared to the corresponding quarter last year while there was a growth of 134% in total projected expenditure to Rs 17,734 crore as against budget expectation of 13,231 crore. Railways was undertaking massive accounting reforms to ensure tracking of expenditure, the presentation showed. The presentation also dwelled deeper into revenue mix and key expenditure areas for the railways, something that would come out every quarter now.

“Prabhu’s assurance that railways will give out quarterly numbers will definitely boost investor confidence as it is bare minimum for the sake of greater transparency,” said Alok Churiwala, spokesperson, BSE Brokers Forum.

Cash strapped Indian Railways, world’s largest passenger and fourth largest cargo carrier, is expecting a $120 billion of investment in the next five years. Prabhu’s plans to tap low cost pension and insurance funds that would give it capital for a duration of 20 to 30 years.

“Giving out quarterly results was good step for bringing transparency but a small part of the big picture,” said Ajay Shah. “We should judge Indian Railways based on the work that will be done on the recommendations of the Bibek Debroy committee report.

The Bibek Debroy committee report was mainly for suggesting a road-map for restructuring the Indian Railways. Among other reforms it suggested measures like bringing rail regulator, scrapping the rail budget and making room for more players in an open access regime in the sector.
