Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders on Friday protested against the Metro fare hike outside the Union Urban Development Ministry housed in Nirman Bhavan here. AAP leaders, including Delhi Social Welfare Minister Rajendra Pal Gautam, were later detained and removed from the area by the city police, AAP said. Friday’s protest came on the heels of the ‘Metro Fare Satyagraha’ by AAP volunteers against the hike, at metro stations across the city on Wednesday and Thursday.
The fares were increased from Tuesday despite strong opposition from the AAP-led Delhi government, which had locked horns with the Delhi Metro Rail Corp (DMRC) over the hike — the second this year. Earlier this week, Delhi AAP convenor Gopal Rai had said the fare hike will

New Delhi, October 13: Indian Railways have completed the task of equipping 200 stations with free Wi-Fi service across the country. A recent tweet by the Ministry of Railways confirms the same. It says, “Free RailWire – Google super high-speed Wi-Fi service now available at 200 railway stations across India #DigitalIndiaDigitalRail”. The free Wi-Fi facility has found more takers in smaller cities as it gives the poor connectivity of high-speed broadband. As per Indian Railways, over 10 million people who pass through these railway stations every day now have an access to fast Internet which lets them stream, research and download.

Wi-Fi service now available at 200 railway stations across India
RailTel has taken a lead in providing fast Wi-Fi for the use of passengers
Google’s free WiFi for over 400 Indian Railways stations is one of the biggest projects that will give a major push to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Digital India’ initiative. As per Google, over five million people in the country are latching onto its free Internet service every month (about 1.7 lakh people every day). Of this, 15,000 people are accessing the Internet for the first time in their lives every day, the company said. That’s a whole lot of users.
Railway Wifi
Mumbai Central, a railway station in Mumbai became the first railway station in the country in January 2016 to offer free Wi-Fi facility. Railways then continued with connecting all busy stations like Bhubaneswar, Bangalore, Howrah, Kanpur, Mathura, Aligarh, Barelli and Varanasi stations with the free internet service at rail premises. The Indian Railways continued connecting other busy stations such with the free Internet service. With Larsen and Toubro, RailTel and Pune Smart City, Google brings high-speed public Wi-Fi to Pune as part of the Smart City Project.

Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has created a sense of urgency, says Tilak Raj Seth, Executive Vice President and Head, Mobility at Siemens. In an interview with FE Online’s Smriti Jain on the sidelines of IREE 2017, Seth talks about the need to speed up electrification pace and how India can surpass China. According to Seth, when it comes to manufacturing locomotives and train sets, Make in India is the only economically viable option. Edited excerpts:
What has your experience been with the new Railway Minister Piyush Goyal? What is it that you think he can bring to Indian Railways?

has been in the Railways for just about four weeks. But, he has created a sense of urgency in a very positive manner, on many topics…like the pace of electrification, improving operations to a global level, enhancing throughput, augmenting safety, etc. He has also said that for safety, there is no budget constraint because it takes priority over everything. All the General Managers of respective Railways are free to do whatever is needed for safety. He has empowered the team completely.
Of course he mentioned that, the governance required from the board, also needs to be specified in a designated time. This sense of urgency which he has created, on these critical topics, is very positive and very welcome. There is lot of sincerity and sense of purpose behind the whole thing, which is very good.
What are the 5 things that the Railway Minister should put on his priority list, which are doable as well, without being ambitious about the targets?
Railways is not a business which can be set up and forgotten about. It’s a continuous, on-going dynamic business, moving 7 billion people annually, which is like the whole planet moving in India, at least once on the rail. What’s important is that the right track is caught. Like somebody explained – what’s the way to God – turn right and go straight. If Railways came on the right track of things – and that’s possible within the time that the current government has – the Minister has mentioned in his speech, we are a team in hurry, but he said it in very positive manner.
Bullet Train Has Many Benefits; Can't Compare With Hyperloop: Achal Khare, Man In-Charge Of Project

In my opinion, the following things can be done; Railways have started going behind infrastructure projects of locomotives and various manufacturing additions, they must continue with that. There is also the Kanchrapara project for EMUs. The Minister has mentioned that train sets will be made. So capacity addition must continue.
Secondly, for us to have an enviable safe and secured system that we can all be proud of, is some time away. A lot can already been done right now. There are TPWS initiatives, they can be hastened. Everything that requires to be invested on signaling, safety and security, can be accelerated, and this is possible within this period. In electrification, we have roughly 30 to 40 thousand kms, yet in balance. This can’t happen naturally in one and a half years, but a significant part of this can be done. Today we have electrified about 4 thousand kms, and the Ministry is saying let’s do about 12 thousand kms, now that is possible.
From an industry perspective what is you are ask from the Railway minister?
Our ask is to continue to invest, modernize and upgrade. India has one of the oldest Railway networks in the world. But we did not match up to the technology edge, like the rest of the world. Some of the countries who started far later than us, they over arched the speed and journey, which we can get too. Look at China, they electrified roughly 55 thousand kms from past 10 years, and in the last 3 years, about 8 thousand kms per annum. Our pace is 4 thousand kms per annum. Once we reach about 12 thousand kms, then our pace would be better than China.

In half a decade’s time, we would have electrified our key routes and tracks. We should modernize the rolling stock, there should be safe and secure signalling systems, improve the operational efficiency. The world is of digitalization, so what we missed on the hardware technology, I think we can do it better than the world, in India, on the digitalization platform. There is a great talent in the country, and by using the data and the information that we have, using predictive maintenance, reducing cost and improving operational efficiency, I think a lot can be done.
The Rail Development Authority may soon get to decide fares. Does Indian Railways need dynamic fares?
Railways must have both facets of national role. One is they are the national carrier and they have to care inclusively for the poorest in the country to provide modern and efficient transportation. They also have a role of a business organisation that they continuously don’t end up losing money. Hence, when you consider these two goals, we have the question that should the fares be static or dynamic? If people can afford, why shouldn’t they afford? Mumbai carries 7.5 million passengers per annum and it being commercial capital. Why should the Mumbai traveller not be able to pay what is the commercial cost of travel? Eventually the economy pays for it. For example, if an employee has to travel by train and its fare goes up, the employer will pay for it.
Watch! Tejas Express: Indian Railways Redefines Luxury Train Travel
Similarly, the whole issue of fare revision cannot be to the exclusion of freight. Freight is 70% of the total revenue that railways gets and if railways were to shift part of the freight load of the road back to rail, then they need to be commercially attractive. So whether the fare revision is upwards or downwards, it has to be market savvy.
Should Indian Railways be investing in diesel locomotives?
The environment- friendly technology is certainly electrical. Naturally railways have commitment concerns in international domains. But, the electrical technology makes sense. Anything that can be done to enhance the use of electrical technology must be done.
There was buzz around the GE locomotive project. Are foreign investors jittery about the investment environment in India. Do you feel that way?
No. I think Railways is a very responsible international buyer. They will do nothing which is not in the interest of international investor. I don’t think they are walking out of any commitments. They only want to enhance the environment friendly manufacturing.

What would make Siemens invest billions in the Indian Railways?
One of the large projects being pursued by the Indian railways is to set up EMU manufacture, in a location near Kolkata called the Kanchrapara. We are one of the qualified companies and it is a large multibillion Euro project.
Will these EMUs be made entirely in India or will a certain percentage be sourced from abroad?
No, they will be made in India. Economic forces or market forces need an economy. One cannot compete unless you are economical and you cannot be economical unless you are producing locally. The 5000 coaches need to be made in India. The project requires complete value chain sources in the country. Starting all the way from design, engineering, project management, vendor development, local manufacture, installation, purchasing & sales, pre- post sales etc. These require 13 years of service. On a life cycle basis the cost has to be the lowest and it is only possible if the entire value chain is done in the country.

टोक्योः जापान की बुलेट ट्रेन बनाने वाली कंपनियों को कल-पुर्जे देने वाली कोबे स्टील लिमिटेड विवाद से घिर गई है। ब्लूमबर्ग की रिपोर्ट के अनुसार बुलेट ट्रेन बनाने वाली 2 जापानी कंपनियों ने पाया है कि कोबे स्टील द्वारा बनाए गए ट्रेन के कई कल-पुर्जे मानकों के अनुरूप नहीं हैं। कोबे स्टील से जुड़े विवाद का असर भारतीय प्रोजैक्ट पर पड़ने की भी आशंका है।
भारत की पहली बुलेट ट्रेन परियोजना के लिए जापान ने एक लाख करोड़ रुपए का कर्ज दिया है। ये बुलेट ट्रेन परियोजना साल 2022 तक पूरी होने की उम्मीद है। लेकिन इस विवाद से भारत के प्रोजैक्ट पर भी संकट के बादल मंडराने लगे हैं। गौरतलब है कि पिछले महीने भारत के प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र

मोदी और जापानी प्रधानमंत्री शिंजो आबे ने अहमदाबाद-मुंबई के बीच जापान की मदद से बनने वाली बुलेट ट्रेन परियोजना का उद्घाटन किया था। 12 साल पुरानी कोबे स्टील ने इसके लिए माफी भी मांगी है। रिपोर्ट के अनुसार ट्रेन के पहियों से लेकर कार और डीवीड तक में कम गुणवत्ता वाली सामग्री का प्रयोग किया गया था।
जापानी मीडिया में 8 अक्तूबर को ये खबर आई कि कोबे स्टील ने एल्युमिनियम और कॉपर की गुणवत्ता के बारे में गलत आंकड़े दिए थे। कोबे स्टील टोयोटा मोटर कॉर्प और जनरल मोटर कॉर्प को विभिन्न तरह के सामग्री की आपूर्ति करती है। इन कंपनियों द्वारा बनाए जाने वाली कारों, ट्रेनों और हवाईजहाजों में कोबे स्टील की सामग्री का प्रयोग होता है। ब्लूमबर्ग की रिपोर्ट के अनुसार कोबे स्टील सबसे ज्यादा मुनाफा लोहा, स्टील, एल्युमिनियम और कॉपर बेचकर कमाती है।
रिपोर्ट के अनुसार टोक्यो और ओसाका के बीच बुलेट ट्रेन का संचालन करने वाली सैंट्रल जापान रेलवे कंपनी ने कहा है कि ट्रेन के डिब्बों और पहियो को जोड़ने वाले पुर्जों में लगी एल्युमिनियम धातु मानक स्तर की नहीं है। सैंट्रल जापान रेलवे कंपनी की जांच में 310 पार्ट गुणवत्ता से कम पाए गए। ये सभी पार्ट पिछले पांच साल में कोबे स्टील ने बनाए थे। वेस्ट जापान रेलवे कंपनी ने भी ओसाका से फुकुओका के बीच चलने वाली बुलेट ट्रेन के भी पार्ट भी कम गुणवत्ता वाले पाए गये और ये पार्ट भी कोबे स्टील ने ही बनाए थे।
