कृपया ध्यान दीजिए ! रेलवे के लिए VIP नहीं रहे पूर्व सांसद और विधायक

दरसअल, रेलवे ट्रेनों में आरक्षण करवाते समय पूर्व सासंद और वर्तमान विधायकों को वीआईपी का दर्जा नहीं देगा. उन्हें अब आम यात्रियों की तरह ही रिजर्वेशन करवाना होगा.

सीट कंफर्म नहीं होने पर आम यात्रियों की तरह आपातकालीन कोटे के लिए आवेदन करना होगा. अब तक रेलवे के आरक्षण केंद्रों में पूर्व सांसदों, विधायकों और वर्तमान विधायकों को वीआईपी की श्रेणी में रखा जाता था.

ट्रेन में सफर करने से पहले जरुर जान लें ये खास बात

नयी दिल्ली। तरक्की और विकास के नाम पर जहां भारतीय रेलवे प्रगति के पथ पर है तो वहीं सफाई के नाम पर पिछड़ा हुआ। ट्रेन से लेकर प्लेटफॉर्म और रेलवे ट्रैक हर जगह गंदगी ही गंदगी। ऐसे में अब रेलवे ने इस गंदगी से लड़ने की ठान ली है। 

रेल मंत्री सुरेश प्रभु स्वच्छ भारत अभियान को सफल बनाने के लिए अब अनूठा प्रयोग करने जा रहे हैं। अपने इस नए प्रयोग के तहत रेलवे ट्रेनों में होने वाली सार्वजनिक उद्घोषणा प्रणाली के जरिए स्वच्छता का पाठ पढ़ाएगा। जी हां अब आपको ट्रेनों में आने वाली स्टेशनों की जानकारी के साथ-साथ स्टेशनों और प्लेटफॉर्म को साफ रखने के लिए भी टिप्स दिए जाएंगे।

अब सफर होगा सुहाना, क्योंकि रेलवे ने किए ये 9 बदलाव

On the trail of the Buddha

Launched in 2007 by IRCTC, the Mahaparinirvan Express has been attracting thousands of Buddhist pilgrims from Southeast Asia and the Far East. However, insufficient marketing at its home base and a high cost have been major reasons for its lack of popularity in India

The history of the cultural heritage of Buddha dates back to more than 2500 years ago. The influence of Buddhism can be seen across all Asian countries, but as a religion it rose in and around ancient Magadha in Bihar and is based on the teachings of

Let's revive Air India's lost glory: CMD Ashwani Lohani to employees

The new chairman and managing director of Air India, Ashwani Lohani, wrote to employees on Friday, listing out his priorities towards reviving the ailing national carrier. He admitted the airline had “lost sheen” in recent years and the “situation needs correction”.

Lohani also noted the airline was going through a “grave crisis” and asked employees to give their best, instead of working for “petty personal interests”.

He said safety, enhancing passenger experience, improvement in engineering set-up, on-time performance, cordial worker-management relations and better service would be crucial to revive Air India’s ‘lost glory’.

How amazing it would be to see all Indian railway stations as beautiful & clean as this!

Dirty platforms, water bottled littered across the tracks, broken dustbins, etc. are some common sites at most of the railways stations in India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recently launched ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ and people are hopeful that things might change for good in coming days.

But here’s an indigenous idea that has totally changed the look of a railway station.

These pictures are of Aluva railway station, which is about 16 km from Kochi airport. Neha Venkatesh clicked these pictures and recently shared it on her Facebook page.
Aluva is an important railway station in Greater Cochin situated in Ernakulam district and also the second busiest station in the Indian state of Kerala in terms of number of trains.

7 वें वेतन आयोग उम्मीद से ज्यादा पहले लागू किया जा सकता है 7th Pay Commission may be implemented earlier than expected

The 7th Pay Commission may be announced ahead of time than was predicted before. Justice Ashok Kumar Mathur told PTI on August 25, “The Commission will submit its report by the end of September.”

THE OLD NEWS – The Union Cabinet extended the Seventh Pay Commission’s term by four months till December 31 to give its views on revising salaries and pensions for nearly 9.8 million central government employees and 9.9 million pensioners. The panel headed by Justice AK Mathur, whose recommendations might also have a bearing on the salaries of the state government staff, was given the extension a day before its original 18-month term ended.
UPDATE – An official of the Finance Ministry, of course, speaking on condition of anonymity, had this to say, “The central government will decide execution time of the pay commission’s proposals after the pay panel submits its report, which will be possibly a pre-election ‘special package’ for West Bengal, Assam, Kerala and Tamil Nadu, which are all due for polls by May 2016”.
Just like the one rank one pension (OROP) was announced by the present government on the 5th of this month ahead of the Bihar Assembly elections despite huge financial burden to get majority seats in the Bihar Assembly, the sources indicate that the recommendations of Seventh Pay Commission, will be implemented before the announcement of West Bengal, Assam, Kerala and Tamil Nadu states assemblies’ election in May 2016.
POLITICS – BJP needs to win most state elections in the next four years to gain control of the Rajya Sabha, where seats are distributed based on the strength of parties in state assemblies. So, the present government is ready to give any sop to win state assembly elections. This was indicated by the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who had this to say on 30th August, “report of Seventh Pay Commission for central government employees was coming shortly”.
THE FACT – The 7th Pay Commission was given a deadline to submit their recommendations before 31st December 2015, that gives them the liberty to submit their recommendations at any date before 31st December 2015.
If you remember, The Seventh Pay Commission, which was set up by the UPA government, was required to submit its report by August end. The Chairman of the Seventh Pay Commission, Justice Ashok Kumar Mathur told PTI on August 25, “The Commission will submit its report by the end of September.”
THE POLITICAL GAME – A defeat for the Prime Minister would harm his chances of consolidating power in parliament, where his reform agenda is being blocked because his party is in the minority in the Rajya Sabha. Hence the present Government needs to win most state elections in the next four years to gain control of the Rajya Sabha, where seats are distributed based on the strength of parties in state assemblies, Hence the present Government is ready to give any sop to win states assemblies elections.
THE CONCLUSION – Who cares about politics, we have our own ends to meet, the sooner the better.. we are waiting … waiting and waiting……
