At present traffic utilization of the section is 105 per cent, resulting in detention of trains and loss of revenue. In order to attain the desired fluidity and increase in the sectional capacity, doubling of this single line section is very essential from operational point of view.Construction of 165 km long third railway line between Anuppur-Katni in Madhya Pradesh has also been approved at a cost of Rs. 1595.76 crore. The project is likely to be completed in over five years spanning over 12th and 13th plan period.

Apart from this substantial additional coal traffic from IB valley, Korba area, East Corridor and Gevra Road - Pendra Road Project will be channelised through this route to the respective destinations.

  6. CapitalStars Financial Research Private Limited Special Report On RAILWAY BUDGET 20 Feb 2016 Changes to Ticketing Policy Sought in Rail Budget Changes to the ticketing policy such as 50 per cent refund on 'tatkal' cancellations and no limit in ticket bookings for travelers are some of the suggestions for the railways budget 2016-17 made by the people in a survey. Citizens have also raised concerns over bribes taken by TTEs (train ticket examiners) and misuse of emergency quota and sought such issues to be addressed in the 'Make Railways Better' survey. Approximately 63 per cent of the citizens surveyed have experienced or observed TTEs taking bribes for giving seats/ticketless travel. "This is an area where citizens are keen that through policies, processes and systemic changes the Railways must address it otherwise the bribes taken by TTEs translate into revenue loss for the organization." About 17 per cent of the citizens indicated that they would approach a tout or agent for a last minute travel requirement, 9 per cent of them indicated that they would prefer to approach someone in the Railways to secure the ticket under special quota, 62 per cent said they would prefer to use the IRCTC website while 12 per cent said CapitalStars Financial Research Pvt.

  7. CapitalStars Financial Research Private Limited Special Report On RAILWAY BUDGET 20 Feb 2016 they would prefer going to the Railways reservation counter. According to the survey, people want a transparent system for emergency and VIP seat allocation, and guidelines to be issued defining emergency and VIP. They have suggested this quota should be cut down by 75 per cent. Suggesting a curb in tout involvement in ticketing, the survey has advocated for deployment GRP and RPF to keep a strict vigil on the stations and reservation counters to prevent tout operation beside installation of CCTV cameras strategically around the booking windows to deter unscrupulous elements in illegal ticketing. Respondents in the survey have suggested that a 50 per cent refund should be given on 'tatkal' ticket cancellation six hours before departure and also a quota for online bookings of such tickets should be introduced. There are suggestions for allotment of lower/middle berths for senior citizens and women with young kids and no limit should be put on booking tickets for self as first traveler. Railways to tap auto and FMCG sectors in big way Facing a decline in loadings demand, railways is mulling various options including entering into untapped areas like auto and FMCG to increase freight revenue. "The need of the hour is to enter new areas to expand the freight operation in a significant way," said a senior Railway Ministry official, adding, "The aim is to enter into untapped areas."

  8. CapitalStars Financial Research Private Limited Special Report On RAILWAY BUDGET 20 Feb 2016 Some of the proposals, including tapping automobile and FMCG sectors in a big way, are likely to come up in Rail Budget 2016-17.Currently, railways mainly carries commodities such as coal, iron ore, steel, cement, minerals, fertilizers and food grains. However, there are no demands for steel, cement and coal due the various reasons. Food grains loadings were also affected due to change in the policy. "So we have to look for new areas potential sectors like tapping the automobile and FMCG sectors in a big way. In fact we have listed about 46 commodities where we can explore doing business," Door-to-Door transportation of goods using road railers is being actively considered. Road railers are capable of movement on road and rail. Railways' trial run for the road railers is over and the road railers service will be introduced on the Delhi- Chennai route.

  9. CapitalStars Financial Research Private Limited Special Report On RAILWAY BUDGET 20 Feb 2016 Railway passenger and freight fares set to be hiked The Centre has decided to raise train passenger and freight charges to bail the Railways out of a crippling financial crisis but the timing of the announcement is yet to be finalized. Besides failing to meet its annual revenue targets, the Railways is also groaning under a burden of Rs 32,000 crore this year towards implementing the 7th pay commission recommendations.“(The) rail coffers are virtually empty. A decision on hiking fares has been taken though railways minister Suresh Prabhu remains undecided on the timing and manner of the announcement. They added that the fare increase can come by way of a direct increase or through an indirect route such as an increase in the cost of services provided by the public sector behemoth. “The hike will be announced before or after the budget,” the sources said adding that a raise now will enable the Railways to take advantage of the peak travel season beginning March. India’s largest transporter ferries around 23 million people daily, which is equivalent to the population of Australia and New Zealand put together, on its network of tracks running up to more than 64,000 km. Immediately after assuming office in 2014, the NDA government had announced a 14% across-the-board hike in fares, following this up with incremental and indirect measures at raising travel costs by increasing the minimum chargeable fare for second class non-suburban trains or through changes in the refund rules and the imposition of the Swach Bharat cess. In what can be seen as a hint of the ministry’s current thinking, the Railways portal have put up a study by a group named ‘Axis Capital’ which recommends a 10% hike in passenger fares and a 5% raise in freight rates to improve the state-run transporter’s finances.

Overall performance during the current year has been worrying. Total freight earnings (Rs 71,217 crore) until November 15 was 8.42% lower than the budget target, while earnings from passenger services (Rs 27,991 crore) were 11.6% lower than the targets.
