MUMBAI LOCAL : RAIL CARD TO REPLACE SEASON TICKETS


Local Train commuters may soon get a Rail Card in place of monthly season tickets which they can also use for some retail therapy, a famous Newspaper reported. To be launched in Mumbai's local train network on a pilot basis before the facility is extended to other places, the public sector transporter is in talks with 31 banks to firm up the co-branding proposal.  

Rail Cards for Mumbai Local Train Passengers
Rail Cards  to replace  Season Tickets


According to the plan, there will be three types of Rail cards - Gold, Silver and Platinum. While the silver card will be for monthly pass holders, gold cards will be issued to passengers opting for six months duration pass. Platinum card is meant for year long pass holders. 

 Banks, including SBI, ICICI, HDFC and PNB have shown keen interest in the Rail Card project and accordingly agreements will be signed,' said the official.
Nearly 75 lakh commuters use the local train services in Mumbai every day and is called the city's lifeline. Likewise, the train service is a key mode of transportation in Kolkata and Chennai as well. 

Indian Railways has already launched a mobile application for paperless unreserved tickets for local train travel. Offering Rail Card to replace monthly passes is a step further towards providing more facilities to passengers, added the official.

After Google, it is social media giant Facebook, which is looking to hook up with Indian Railways to provide Wi-Fi across railway stations. R.K. Bahuguna, Chairman, RailTel Corporation of India Ltd (RailTel) said the company will start talks with Facebook for expanding its WiFi coverage not only to railway stations but to villages in the vicinity as well, a famous Newspaper reported. 



“Facebook India has approached us for the WiFi initiative. We will engage with the company for the expansion of our Internet access programme across railways stations to cover villages in the vicinity,” Bahuguna responded to a media query.


RailTel has a readily available optic fibre-based network across some 4,000 railway stations in the country. The state run company is currently rolling out Railwire-branded WiFi hotspots in partnership with Internet search major Google and aims to connect at least 100 railway stations with data network by the year end.

But unlike the existing Google-backed plan, RailTel wants to take the Internet to smaller rail stops, making it available to neighbouring villages via additional access points. Under the Google-RailTel Internet programme, nearly 2 million people access free WiFi every month across 21 railway stations.

“Through this (Facebook) initiative, we will be able to offer data services up to a 10-km radius from a connected rail stop, which however can further be increased by up to 25 km via additional access points,” Bahuguna said. RailTel is capable of providing the passive infrastructure that includes optical fibre, local-area network (LAN) and power supply for the WiFi system within station premises in addition to Internet backhaul of 1Gbps at each station. Mark Zuckerberg-headed Facebook recently concluded a pilot across 125 rural locations after purchasing bandwidth from state-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam (BSNL), and is currently in talks with various Internet service firms for Express WiFi expansion in the country.

RailTel is also an Internet service provider and holds a category-A licence for it. According to Bahuguna, providing WiFi service is not viable for RailTel, but with support from the Universal Service Obligation (USO) fund, it can extend the programme to as many as 40,000 villages surrounding 4,000 Internet-ready railway stations across the country.

Humsafar Express, one of the new AC trains announced by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu in his Rail Budget speech this year, may see the light of the day in the coming months. The train, that has been proposed as a fully air-conditioned three-tier service, was announced as one of the three trains (Tejas, UDAY and Humsafar) for the reserved passengers. The train’s coaches are currently under construction at the Rail Coach Factory (RCF) Kapurthala. The final touches to the rakes are being given, a famous Newspaper reported.

Special Features of  Humsafar Express 


The seats of Humsafar Express have been provided with better padding, and are therefore more comfortable . Yet another feature that will bring cheer to passengers is the provision for more mobile and laptop charging points in the train. “This fully air-conditioned LCB (Linke Hofmann Busch) 3-tier coach train will have all display boards that will also have braille facility for the visually impaired,” the officials said.

Other features of the proposed train include CCTVs, fire and smoke detection systems and bio-toilets in all coaches. The coaches will also boast of a vinyl coating on their exterior front. Still more features may be added to the coaches to ensure enhanced comfort of the passengers.

The Humsafar Express will also have an optional service for meals. Prabhu, in his Rail Budget speech, had said, that Humsafar and Tejas trains will ensure cost recovery by way of tariff and non-tariff measures.

While the coaches of Tejas, a train which will boast of 22 new features, are also being constructed at RCF Kapurthala, Antyodaya Express (superfast trains for unreserved passengers) and UDAY (Utkrisht Double-Decker Air-conditioned Yatri) are at design stages. Orders for Antyodaya rakes have also been placed with Integral Coach Factory (ICF), Chennai. ICF has already delivered Deen Dayalu coaches, another announcement of the rail budget, that have several modern features such as aquaguard water and cushioned luggage racks for the general class.
