Indian Railways has launched special trains between Nagpur and Pune, and Nagpur and Amritsar, for the month of February.
The Maratha heritage sites of Pune and the Golden Temple of Amritsar are set to attract more travellers from Nagpur this month. In a move to ease the pressure of an extra rush of passengers on these routes, Indian Railways has announced the launch of four special air-conditioned trains.

Basically, there will be two new trains -- one from Nagpur to Pune, and the other from Nagpur to Amritsar, and both of them will have their return journeys as well, making it a total of four new trains.

Indian Railways Launches Web Portal for Tenders



Indian Railways on Monday launched an e-tendering portal to bring transparency in the execution of work contracts and make it cost-effective for the bidders.

This is a major step to bring transparency in the system as our aim is to put every transaction online, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said at the launch in New Delhi.

Railways invite around 25,000 tenders every year involving an expenditure of about Rs. 35,000 crores for the upgradation, creation of new assets, and other works.

Prabhu said the new tendering system will also be cost-effective and save time as any bidder can now download the tendering document and submit it online.

Railways to allow booking of eTickets only 6 times a month from 15 Feb


This has been done to prevent any possible misuse of online booking facility as it has been felt that a genuine passenger does not require to book tickets online for more than six times in a month

New Delhi: Come February 15, passengers can book train tickets online only six times a month instead of existing 10 on Indian Railways’ e-ticketing website. Under the existing system of online booking, one can book tickets on Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) website 10 times a month but from February 15, it will be reduced to six times, a senior Railway Ministry official said.

This has been done to prevent any possible misuse of online booking facility as it has been felt that a genuine passenger does not require to book tickets online for more than six times in a month, he said. According to an analysis of usage of quota of booking 10 tickets in a month, it indicated that 90 per cent of users were booking upto six tickets in a given month and only 10 per cent were booking more than six, he said, adding that it is suspected that the 10 per cent users might be involved in touting activities. Therefore, to deter such touts and to facilitate genuine users, it has been decided that a maximum of six tickets can be booked by an individual user in a month, said the official.

Relief for Railways as Finance Ministry agrees to release Rs 32000 Crore

Minister of RailwaysNew Delhi: In some relief to the railways, the finance ministry has restored support to the national transporter from general exchequer to the tune of Rs 32,000 crore for the current financial year.
The ministry had earlier slashed the gross budgetary support (GBS) to the railways by Rs 12,000 crore for 2015-16, citing slow pace of work.
The railways has asked Finance Ministry to restore its GBS of Rs 40,000 crore. The decision of a 30% cut in GBS had come as a big shock to the railways as it is already grappling with an expected burden of around Rs 32,000 crore, due to the 7th pay commission and a slide in earnings.
