Increased passenger amenities, more safety measures, timely completion of projects and increased financial discipline are the main highlights of the Railway Budget 2014-15 presented by the Minister of Railways Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda in Parliament on 8th July, 2014.today.


The Budget seeks course correction in the light of mismanagement, apathy, populism in starting projects and severe fund crunch that have inflicted the railways over the years, the Minister averred. For this, structural reforms will be introduced and resources will be mobilized through PSU surplus, FDI and PPP.

BUDGET COMES IN THE FACE OF HUGE FUND REQUIREMENT, INCOMPLETE PROJECTS

RAILWAYS NEED TO BALANCE COMMERCIAL AND WELFARE OBJECTIVES

The Minister of Railways Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda, while presenting the Railway Budget for 2014-15 in Parliament today, said that the Indian Railways practically carries anything and everything and it never says no to ‘a thing’ if it fits in the wagons. Most importantly, it is the backbone of supply chain of the defence establishment and plays a very crucial role in security of the nation.

While it carries 23 million passengers a day, there are still large number of people who have not set a foot on a train yet. It carries over one-billion tonnes of freight a year, connecting ports and mines to industrial clusters, but still there are vast tracts of hinterland waiting for rail connectivity. Though freight business has grown steadily over the years, Indian Railways carry only 31% of the total freight carried in the country by all modes.

These are the challenges we have to face. An organization of this magnitude vested with varied responsibilities, is expected to earn like a commercial enterprise but serve like a welfare organization. These two objectives are like two rails of the railway track, which though travel together but never meet. So far, Indian Railways have managed to do tight-rope walking by balancing these twin conflicting objectives.

MEASURES FOR IMPROVEMENT IN SAFETY AND SECURITY, 4000 WOMEN RPF CONSTABLES TO BE RECRUITED

The Minister of Railways Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda has said that safety of passengers is of paramount importance for Indian Railways. Presenting the Railway Budget 2014-15 in Parliament today he said, it is estimated that over Rs. 40,000 crore would be needed to be invested in track renewals, elimination of unmanned level crossing and construction of Road-Under-bridges and Road-over-bridges.

The Minister said, he is making provision of Rs. 1,785 crore for Road-under-bridges and Road-over-bridges in the Budget and requested concerned State Governments to expedite their proposals and pass on their share of the cost. The Minister said, Indian Railways have 30348 Level Crossings, out of which 11563 are unmanned. Each unmanned level crossing is being examined in detail and depending on the site condition, action will be taken to eliminate it by suitable modality.

He said, Indian Railways proposes to use modern Vehicle Borne Ultrasonic Flaw Detection System to detect rail and weld fractures. In addition Ultrasonic Broken Rail Detection System (UBRD) will also be tried at two locations as a Pilot Project. The Minister said, in order to improve the safety of travelling passengers, he proposes to bring in technology for automatic closing of doors before start of train, both in main line and in sub-urban coaches. A pilot project for limited number of trains will be taken up.

BULLET TRAINS AND DIAMOND QUADRILATERAL NETWORK OF HIGH SPEED RAIL

The Minister of Railways Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda has said that Indian Railways is on its way to fulfill the long cherished dream to run a Bullet Train. Presenting the Railway Budget 2014-15 in Parliament today, he said, the Railways proposes bullet trains by starting off with an already identified Mumbai-Ahmedabad sector, where a number of studies have been done.

The Minster said, under the leadership of Shri Narendra Modiji, the Railways is embarking on an ambitious plan to have a Diamond Quadrilateral Network of High Speed Rail, connecting major Metros and growth centers of the country. A provision of Rs.100 crore has been made in the Budget for high Speed project to RVNL/HSRC (High Speed Rail Corridor) for taking further steps.

He said, while bullet trains would require completely new infrastructure, higher speed for existing trains will be achieved by upgrading the present network. The Minister said, hence, an effort will be made to increase the speed of trains to 160-200 kmph in select sectors so as to significantly reduce travel time between major cities. The Minister said, the identified sectors are:

PROJECT MANAGEMENT GROUP TO BE SET UP TO OVERCOME DELAYS IN PROJECT EXECUTION

Railways will set up Project Management Group at the level of Railway Board to overcome delays in project execution. Presenting the Railway Budget in Parliament the Minister of Railways Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda said similarly to expedite the projects at the ground level, a project Monitoring & Coordination Group consisting of officials of State Government, Railways and professionals will also be set up.

Railways have been suffering heavily because of time and cost overrun due to poor project management. Giving details of the poor state of project completion, the Minister said that in the last 30 years as many as 676 projects were sanctioned worth Rs.1,57,883 crore. Of these, only 317 projects could be completed and 359 projects remain to be completed.

STEPS TO BE TAKEN TO ATTRACT MORE INVESTMENT UNDER PPP MODEL

Railways will interact with Industry and take further steps to attract investment under Public Private Partnership (PPP) through BOT and Annuity route and 8 to 10 capacity augmentation projects on congested routes will be identified for this purpose. Presenting the Railway Budget in Parliament today the Minister of Railways Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda said Zonal Railways will be suitably empowered to finalize and execute such projects.

The Minister said with a large backlog of sanctioned projects, funding continues to be the biggest challenge for Railways. He said while private investment and customer funding for some port connectivity projects and few other Power Sector Projects has started, much more needs to happen if infrastructure creation has to keep pace with the requirement.

RAILWAY RESERVATION SYSTEM TO BE REVAMPED

The Minister of Railways Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda has said that Railway Reservation System will be revamped into Next Generation e-ticketing System. Ticket booking through mobile phones and through Post Offices will be popularized.

Presenting the Railway Budget 2014-15 in Parliament today he said, the Indian Railways will improve the system capabilities in e-ticketing to support 7200 tickets per minute as against 2000 tickets per minute and allow 1,20,000 simultaneous users at any point in time. The Minister said, facility of Coin Operated Automatic Ticket Vending Machines will be experimented.

He said, efforts will also be made to provide facility of buying Platform Tickets and unreserved tickets over internet. Parking-cum-Platform Combo Tickets will be launched to facilitate the passengers and to save their time. He said that online booking facility of Railway Retiring Room will be extended to all the stations during the course of the year. Presenting the Railway Budget 2014-15 in Parliament today he said, the Indian Railways is expanding the scope of online booking for people to Coach, book a Berth and book a Seat in Chair Car.

CATERING SERVICES TO BE IMPROVED; FOOD COURTS TO BE SET UP AT MAJOR STATIONS

The Minister of Railways Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda has said that in order to improve the quality, hygiene of on-board catering services and to provide variety, the Indian Railways proposes to introduce Pre-cooked (Ready-to-eat) Meals of reputed brands in a phased manner. Presenting the Railway Budget 2014-15 in Parliament today he said, to bring perceptible improvement in the catering services, he proposes to introduce Quality Assurance Mechanism through Third Party Audit by NABCB certified agencies.

He said, in addition to the third party audit, a system of collecting feedback through IVRS mechanism, from the travelling passengers on the quality of food served, will be launched shortly. The Minister said, if the service is not to the standards set, especially in hygiene and the taste, severe action would be initiated against the vendors including cancellation of the contract.

BUDGET ALLOCATION FOR CLEANLINESS IN TRAINS AND STATIONS INCREASED SUBSTANTIALLY

The Minister of Railways Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda has announced substantial increase in budget allocation for cleanliness in the current year, which is a 40% increase over the previous year.

Presenting the Railway Budget 2014-15 in Parliament today, he said, the Indian Railways proposes to outsource cleaning activities at 50 major stations to professional agencies and to set up a separate Housekeeping Wing to have focused attention and exclusive responsibility of maintaining cleanliness and sanitation at stations. He said, a Corpus Fund for upkeep of stations will be set up.

The Minister said, use of CCTVs at stations will be extended to monitor cleanliness activities. All-India level complaint/helpline number will be printed on the back of all PRS tickets. System of periodic third-party inspections will be introduced. Further, Bio-toilets will be increased in sufficient numbers in trains in order to mitigate the problem of direct discharge of human waste on the tracks and platform aprons at stations.

PILOT PROJECT FOR ‘OFFICE ON WHEELS’ FOR BUSINESS TRAVELERS

MAJOR IT INITIATIVES INCLUDE PAPERLESS OFFICES, NEW MOBILE-BASED SERVICES

The Minister of Railways Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda has said that in order to add best value to business travelers, the Indian Railways proposes to provide workstations in select trains on payment basis. Presenting the Railway Budget 2014-15 in Parliament today he said, a pilot project will be launched by this year.

He said, Indian Railways is also going for a computer assisted Enterprise Resource Planning Solution, so that synergy is brought in. To begin with, following initiatives will be taken up:

i) Moving towards paperless offices in Indian Railways in 5 years;
ii) Next Generation Ticket Reservation System;
iii) Wi-fi Services in all A1 and A category stations and in select trains;
iv) Real-time tracking of trains and rolling stock;
v) Mobile based Wakeup Call System for passengers;
vi) Mobile based Destination Arrival Alert;

INNOVATIONS INCUBATION CENTERS TO BE SET UP TO MAKE BEST USE OF IDEAS AND EXPERIENCE OF STAFF

Railways proposes to set up an Innovations Incubation Center to harness the ideas generated from the staff of Indian Railways and convert them into practical solutions to increase efficiency of the system.

Presenting the Railway Budget in Parliament today the Minister of Railways Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda said innovations which result in cost saving as well as revenue generation will be suitably rewarded in the form of incentive.

As part of this exercise, it is also proposed to set up summer internships for the undergraduates of engineering and management studies. Students can intern at any of the various units of Railways i.e. Division, PSUs and Production Units.

FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE OF RAILWAYS IN 2013-14

The Minister of Railways Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda, while presenting the Railway Budget for 2014-15 in Parliament today, said that the financial position of Railways has undergone a change since presentation of Interim Budget and passing of the ‘Vote on Account’ in February last. He gave the details as under :-

1. Since presentation of Interim Budget and passing of the ’Vote on Account‘ in February last, financial position has undergone a change. Railways carried 1050.18 million tonnes. Goods Earnings were short only by Rs. 94 crore. Originating passengers, also, were less by 46 million over Revised target and Passenger earnings were short by Rs. 968 crore over Revised target.

2. Over all, though the Gross Traffic Receipts grew by 12.8% to reach Rs. 1,39,558 crore, it was short of Revised target by Rs. 942 crore. On the other hand, Ordinary Working Expenses stood at Rs. 97,571 crore, which was in excess by Rs. 511 crore.

3. Appropriation to Pension Fund had to be stepped up to match the actual outgo.

RESOURCE MOBILISATION FOR RAILWAYS

The Minister of Railways Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda, while presenting the Railway Budget for 2014-15 in Parliament today, outlined the Resource Mobilization for Railways as under :-

Leveraging Railway PSU Resources:- Railway PSUs have done very well and are financially sound. It is proposed to launch a scheme to bring in investible surplus funds of Railway PSUs in infrastructure projects of Railways, which can generate attractive returns for PSUs.

Private investment in Rail Infrastructure through Domestic and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI); -Growth of Railway Sector depends heavily on availability of funds for investment in rail infrastructure. Internal revenue sources and government funding are insufficient to meet the requirement. Hence, Ministry of Railways is seeking Cabinet approval to allow FDI in Rail sector.

RAILWAYS TO EARN Rs. 1.64 LAKH CRORE IN 2014-15 ON IMPROVED OPERATING RATIO

The Minister of Railways Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda, while presenting the Railway Budget for 2014-15 in Parliament today, gave details of the Budget estimates of Railways for the year 2014-15 as under:-

Anticipating a healthier growth of economy, it is hoped to achieve total receipts of Rs. 1,64,374 crore and would peg total expenditure at Rs. 1,49,176 crore.

The freight traffic growth of 4.9% amounting to 1,101.25 million tonne, an increment of 51.07 million tonne over 2013-14, based on trends in the first two months it anticipated.

Also anticipated is a small growth in Passenger Traffic over 2013-14. Earnings from Freight Traffic are estimated at Rs. 1,05,770 crore and from Passenger Traffic Rs. 44,645 crore.

Periodic revision in passenger fare and freight rates, will be linked to revisions in fuel prices in order to insulate the Railway revenues from fuel cost escalation.

Out of total expenditure, the ordinary working expenses have been proposed at Rs. 1,12,649 crore, which is Rs. 15,078 crore higher than 2013-14. This has been necessitated by fuel price hike and increase in staff costs. Pension outgo in 2013-14 had grown by about 16%. Keeping the same trend, provision for pension is kept at Rs. 28,850 crore.

Operating ratio in 2014-15 is pegged at 92.5% which is 1 % better than that in 2013-14.

This is a day that brings speed & energy to the development of J&K

PM : "Hum Jammu-Kashmir ke vikas ko urjawaan aur gati-waan banaayenge."

CENTRAL RAILWAY'S DECCAN QUEEN – 85TH BIRTHDAY
The introduction of ‘Deccan Queen’ between the two premier cities of Maharashtra on 1st June 1930 was a major landmark in the history of the Great Indian Peninsula Railway, the forerunner of the Central Railway. This was the first deluxe train introduced on the railway to serve 2 important cities of the region and was aptly named after Pune, which is also known as ‘Queen of Deccan’ (’Dakkhan ki Rani’).

Initially, the train was introduced with 2 rakes of 7 coaches each one of which was painted in silver with scarlet mouldings and the other with royal blue with gold lines.  The under frames of the coaches of the original rakes were built in England while the coach bodies were built in the Matunga Workshop of the GIP Railway.
 
The Deccan Queen, initially, had only first class and second class accommodation.  First class was abolished on 1st January 1949 and second class was redesigned as first class, which continued up to June 1955 when third class was introduced on this train for the first time. This was later re-designated as second class from April 1974 onwards. The coaches of the original rakes were replaced in 1966 by anti-telescopic steel bodied integral coaches built by Integral Coach Factory, Perambur.
