Mr Railway Minister, why are your Mumbai plans so confusing?

While Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu announced elevated rail corridors for Mumbai, baffled railway authorities aren’t fully aware about the plans

This has left railway officials confused, as at present the two elevated corridors that have been mooted for years now have either been kept in cold storage or are on the drawing board. On November 9, Prabhu seemed proud of the achievements he had made as railway minister.

रेलवे ने किया फेरबदल, अब हर यात्री को होगा फायदा

नई दिल्ली.  रेलवे ने एक बार फिर भारी फेरबदल किया है. नये नियम में अब एक ही ट्रेन का आरक्षण चार्ट एक बार नहीं बल्कि दो बार बनेगा. अगर पहले चार्ट में आरक्षित टिकट कंफर्म नहीं हुआ तो दूसरे चार्ट में आपका टिकट कंफर्म हो जाएगा.  इतना ही नहीं, अब आप ई-टिकट की बुकिंग ट्रेन के प्लेटफार्म से छूटने के आधे घंटे पहले भी करा सकेंगे. अभी तक ऑनलाइन टिकट बुकिंग ट्रेन चलने के चार घंटे पहले बंद कर दी जाती है. इसके अलावा टिकट काउंटर से लिए गए टिकट का भी स्टेटस लोगों के मोबाइल पर मिलेगा.

East-West Metro faces huge Cost Overrun: Babul Supriyo

Union Minister Babul Supriyo holds meeting to clear the East-West Metro project stalemate

Kolkata: The East-West metro, which is being executed by Kolkata Metro Rail Corporation Limited, is facing a huge cost overrun from Rs 4,875 crore to over Rs 8,000 crore, Minister of State for Urban Development Babul Supriyo said.

The additional cost would be jointly borne by the central ministries of rail and urban development and Japanese agency JICA, he told reporters here.

The present equity sharing between the three promoters is Railway Ministry (39.80 per cent), Ministry of Urban Development (13.98 per cent) and JICA (46.22 per cent).
The proportion of equity would not alter when the three promoters chip in with more funds for the project, Supriyo told reporters here.
