PRIVATIZATION OF PASSENGER TRAINS


New Delhi:
The discussions are on with senior officials and experts whether to allow private players run passenger operations and fix fares, a senior Railway Board member said Friday.

At an event organized by Centre for Transportation Research and management, Railway Board Member (Traffic) Girish Pillai said that senior officials are now currently discussing the matter.

There have been many changes in train operations across the world and I think it’s time that India should discuss the options of allowing private operators to operate passenger trains.

“Whether they can be permitted to fix fares, construct terminals, senior officials of railways and experts in the field are discussing this,” said Pillai.

He also said that there was a need to separate the freight sector and passenger services.

The senior official maintained that running train services in the country is loss making endeavour and only a few trains are making any profit, while others are running in losses.

He said that only 15 percent of the non-sub-urban passengers travel in reserved classes among whom around five percent travel in higher classes and 10 to 11 percent travel in sleeper classes.

“Most of them travel in unreserved category. There is a need for changes in freight as well as passenger fares and there needs to be more flexibility in them, he said.

Pillai pointed out that with the nod for private players to enter the freight sector around 50 private freight terminals have come up in the country and railways wants more to come up.

He said that in the USA, the rail operator has only 25 percent of the wagon and container services and the other 75 percent are with private businesses. In Russia, he said, the govt has no stake in these services.

OBSERVE cOM. s. k. vyas ji REMEMBRANCE day ON 13TH fEBRUARY 2019
               Com. S. K. Vyasji, the legendary leader of the Central Govt. Employees and Pensioners passed away on 13th February, 2015.
               Com. Vyasji was the Secretary General and President of the Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers for forty years from 1967 to 2006.  He was the President and Secretary General of All India Audit & Accounts Association for a long time.  He continued as the Advisor of the Confederation and also as the Secretary General of National Co-ordination Committee of Pensioners Association (NCCPA) and Bharat Central Pensioners Confederation (BCPC) till death. 
               Com. Vyasji has led various struggles and strike actions of the Central Govt. Employees and was in the forefront of the leadership which organised the first indefinite strike action of the Central Govt. employees after independence, in the year 1960.  Com. Vyas was jailed and dismissed from service.  He played an important role in rallying the Central Govt. employees along with the striking Railway employees in the year 1974.  He was an able and uncompromising negotiator with the Government in the JCM National Council and Standing Committee.  He was responsible for many of the benefits and allowances enjoyed by the Central Govt. employees.  The cost indexation of wages was earned by the Govt. employees through the sustained struggles and efforts in 1960s under his leadership.  Confederation of Central Govt. employees and workers representing about 15 lakhs Central Govt. employees is in the forefront of the incessant struggle and strike actions organised by Indian Working Class against the neo-liberal economic policies of the Government.  Com. S. K. Vyasji’s vision and ideological clarity has made the Confederation, part and parcel of the mainstream of the working class movement in India.
               Com. Vyasji was a friend, philosopher, guide and everything for the Central Govt. Employees movement.  In the more than six decades long trade union life, Com. Vyasji endeared himself to every section of the Central Govt. Employees.  His death has caused irreparable and irreplaceable loss to all of us.  He was a great leader, symbol of simplicity, a gem of a person and a leader who is down to earth, extremely polite, kind hearted and compassionate; one of the finest human being, tallest leader, a gentle mentor and a legend.
               He is in our hearts!  His memories will be forever with us!  His long saga of struggle and sacrifice for the Central Govt. employees and pensioners will inspire the generations to come.
               The National Secretariat of Confederation of Central Govt. Employees & Workers calls upon all affiliated organisations and C-O-Cs to observe the 4th Death anniversary of Com. S. K. Vyas Ji as “S. K. VYAS JI REMEMBRANCE DAY”. 

               Com. S. K. Vyasji Amar Rahe!

           Long live, Long live !!!

.The Constitution (One hundred and third Amendment) Act, 2019 for "Economically weaker sections"



Postman circle inaugurated on Sunday in Belagavi (Karnataka)


The Postman is the most familiar face and an important member of the society. When people speak about the Department of Posts what they visualize is the ‘Postman’.

Postmen remained familiar to us for more than a century and remembered for all the good reasons of joy that they bring along; be it the villages, metro cities or even the remotest parts of our county – they make their presence felt, everywhere, every passing day and touch upon the hearts of millions. Postmen carry great responsibilities in delivering letters, parcels, money orders, gifts and now even the banking services door-to-door.

They leave no stone unturned to ensure delivering mail and bring love, joy and affection, in fact, the messenger of all that are part and parcel of the society.

This event of installing the Postman Statue may be the first in India and also in the world. This is a great event in the history of Belagavi city and its beautification. It may also be the great event in the Postal Department’s history to honour the postman staff by installing a Postman statue in recognition of their untiring services rendered.

The Supdt. of Post Offices, Belagavi Division and its staff have decided to recognize the services rendered by the Postman staff all these years and have decided to install a Postman Statue in front of the Head Post Office.
The Department in consultation with the Cantonment Board have decided to name the circle as “POSTMAN CIRCLE” (junction near Head Post office, Amba Bhavan) and the erstwhile Telegraph Road will be renamed as “HEAD POST OFFICE ROAD”.

All the officials and officers of the Department of Posts of Belagavi division have contributed towards the cost of the Postman Statue. Member of Parliament, Belagavi Suresh Angadi, has allotted Rs.5,00,000/- towards the installation of the platform and its beautification to the Cantonment Board. Both the Cantonment Board and the HESCOM authorities have helped the Department of Posts in the beautification of the circle.

The Postman Statue is made of bronze and weighing 350 Kg and has a height of 8 feet and made by noted artist Vinayak Manohar Patil. It took the artist 6 months to make the statue.

The event of installing the Postman Statue is also a step in beautifying Belagavi City. In the later stage, a small garden and lighting will be done around the statue and the circle.

All the members of the public were also invited to grace the function at Belagavi Head Post Office on 13th Jan. 2019 at 1100 hours.
