    Interim Rail Budget : Nagpur gets one weekly train; 4 Premium trains to pass through city

    M_Id_460492_Railway_Budget_2014Nagpur News.

    Nagpur will have its share of a weekly Express train starting from city and four premium trains passing through here in the Rail Budget 2014. This surfaced in the interim Railway Budget announced by Rail Minister Mallikarjun Karge in New Delhi on Wednesday. However the business community here has expressed its dissatisfaction over the trains which they have dubbed as highly insufficient and miniscule.

    The weekly train proposed from Nagpur will be Express train that runs towards Rewa. Besides Nagpur-Rewa Express there are talks of another biweekly Nagpur-Malwa Express but it did not appear in the list of 73 new trains which include 17 premium trains, 39 express trains and 10 passenger trains.

    The premium trains that will pass through Nagpur include Howrah – Pune AC Express (Bi-weekly) via Nagpur, Manmad; Mumbai – Howrah AC Express (Bi-weekly) via Nagpur, Raipur; Patna- Bangalore Express (Weekly) via Mughalsarai, Chheoki, Manikpur, Nagpur; and Yeshwantpur – Katra Express (Weekly) via Gulbarga, Kacheguda, Nagpur, New Delhi.

    Below Average Budget : Dipen Agrawal

    Reacting on the list of trains released with Interim Railway Budget, President of Nag Vidarbha Chamber of Commerce Dipen Agrawal said that there was was not much expectations from the Railway Budget 2014 since it was an interim budget for 4 months but it can be termed as a below average budget.

    In an e-mail sent to Nagpur Today, Agrawal said, “There is no concrete proposal or strategy announced to implement the past policies and projects announced by the earlier Railway Ministers, no roadmap of FDI in Railway, no infrastructure development plan or technological upgradation nor high speed trains. An independent Rail Tariff Authority is being set up to advise the government on fixing of fares and freight with past experience of various other authorities like MERC on electricity and TRAI  etc. Government has created a mask to hide their inefficiency and an easy way out for increasing fares and freight.”

    He said, “There was absolutely nothing for Vidarbha & Nagpur except for stoppage of few trains. This was the only demand considered by the Railway Minister out of the list submitted by NVCC. We now just expect the railways to implement already announced projects for Vidarbha and Nagpur in earlier rail budgets soon.”

    The press release was issued by NVCC Hon Secretary Hemant Gandhi.

    Elections influenced rail budget 2014-15 : Tejinder Singh Renu, Secretary – Vidarbha Taxpayers Association (VTA)

    Budget presented is on expected lines, being elections year, it was quite obvious that there would be no increase in passenger fares and freight charges; however finding nothing concrete of safe travel is unfortunate part.

    Since last 5 budgets, high speed trains launch is highlighted, however no major progressive steps observed; although I would recommend that we need to have more focus on improving tracks and its surroundings for safe travel as fast train accident or derailment would be disastrous.

    Upgradation scheme being extended to AC Chair Car and Executive Chair Car passengers, similarly premium AC trains with dynamic fares on Delhi-Mumbai route with shorter advance reservation period are welcome steps.

    Trust Rail Land Development Authority focuses more on parking and infrastructural projects for more convenience of the passengers.
