रेल मंत्री पीयूष गोयल ने कहा कि पिछले वर्ष हमने 1.50 लाख लोगों को नौकरी देने का काम शुरू किया था. इसके बावजूद आज भी रेलवे में लगभग 1.25-1.30 लाख लोगों की जरूरत है.
नई दिल्ली:  
देश भर में रोजगार पर सवाल उठने के बाद केंद्र सरकार ने बुधवार को दावा किया है कि रेलवे अगले कुछ सालों में रेलवे 4 लाख नई नौकरियां देने जा रहा है. अभी हाल ही

में आरटीआई से खुलासा हुआ था कि पिछले कुछ सालों में रेलवे सेवानिवृत्त हो रहे कर्मचारियों की तुलना में बेहद कम नई भर्तियां कर रहा है. अब लोकसभा चुनाव से ठीक दो महीने रेल मंत्री पीयूष गोयल ने कहा कि पिछले वर्ष हमने 1.50 लाख लोगों को नौकरी देने का काम शुरू किया था. इसके बावजूद आज भी रेलवे में लगभग 1.25-1.30 लाख लोगों की जरूरत है और इसके अलावा अगले 2 वर्ष का जब आकलन लेते हैं तो लगभग 1 लाख लोगों के अगले 2 दो साल में रिटायर होने का अनुमान है.
उन्होंने कहा, '2.25-2.50 लाख लोगों को और अधिक मौका मिले, और 1.50 लाख लोगों की भर्ती का काम पहले से चल रहा है. एक प्रकार से लगभग 4 लाख नई नौकरियां रेलवे अकेले देने जा रहा है. जिसमें 1.5 लाख नौकरियां देने की प्रक्रिया काफी आगे बढ़ चुकी है. लगभग दो-ढाई महीने में पूरा प्रोसेस हो जाएगा, लोग नौकरी पर आने शुरू हो जाएंगे.'
उन्होंने कहा कि आज ये भी निर्णय लिया गया है कि जो बाकी वेकैंसी हैं और जो अगले दो वर्ष में रिटायर होंगे उसके लिए पहले से प्लानिंग करके ये सिलसिला शुरू किया जाएगा.
इसके अलावा उन्होंने पहले की सरकारों पर निशाना साधते हुए कहा, 'यदि पिछ्ली सरकारों ने आज की तरह रेल में निवेश किया होता तो आज जो तकलीफ है वो नहीं हुई होती. पहले राजनैतिक कारणों से लाइनों को लगाना तय होता था, इस सरकार ने जहां आवश्यकता है, उस पर केंद्रित करते हुए योजनाबद्ध तरीके से काम किया है.'
उन्होंने कहा, 'आर्थिक रूप से कमजोर वर्ग को आरक्षण देने वाली रेलवे पहली संस्था होगी, 10 फीसदी आरक्षण कमजोर वर्ग के लिये होंगी, शेष आरक्षण अन्य वर्ग के लिये बिना किसी छेड़छाड़ के बरकरार रखा जायेगा.'
रेलवे में रोजगार की स्थिति
3 दिन पहले ही समाचार एजेंसी IANS ने अपनी रिपोर्ट में आरटीआई से मिली जानकारी के हवाले से बताया था कि रेलवे पिछले कुछ वर्षों में नौकरियां देने में विफल रहा है, जबकि कर्मचारियों की सेवानिवृत्ति से रिक्तियां बढ़ती गईं है. आंकड़ों पर गौर करें तो नवंबर 2018 तक रेलवे में ग्रुप-सी और डी के 2,66,790 पद रिक्त थे. वर्ष 2016-17 के दौरान रेलवे में कुल 13,08,323 कर्मचारी कार्यरत थे. इससे पहले 2008-09 में रेलवे में कर्मचारियों की कुल संख्या 13,86,011 थी. इस प्रकार हर साल जितने कर्मचारी सेवानिवृत्त हुए, उसके मुकाबले नई भर्तियां कम हुईं.
सूचना का अधिकार कानून के तहत मांगी गई जानकारी से जो जवाब मिला है, वह चौंकाने वाला है. वर्ष 2008 से लेकर 2018 तक एक भी साल ऐसा नहीं रहा, जब रेलवे के जितने कर्मचारी सेवानिवृत्त हुए, उससे अधिक नई भर्तियां हुईं हों। इसलिए रेलवे में रिक्त पदों की संख्या करीब 3 लाख हो गई है.

MUMBAI: Three men have been arrested by the railway crime branch for robbing passengers after drugging them. The accused operated on long-distance trains plying out of Mumbai from Panvel, CSMT and Kalyan stations. With their arrest, the police have solved five offences. A 31-year-old passenger, Rajesh Mulaiyya, had been drugged with a beverage laced with a sedative while he was travelling from Panvel to Mangalore. On January 15, Mulaiyya spotted the man who had drugged him on Andheri station. He raised an alarm and alerted patrolling GRP personnel. The accused was nabbed and was later identified as Deepak Sahu, 36. Police said Sahu is a native of Madhya Pradesh. He led the cops to two of his associates, Deepak Swami, 40, and Sahil Khan, 35."The trio had robbed two gold chains, two gold rings, a sound system, an LCD television and Rs 5000 in cash from vulnerable passengers.

CHENNAI: With the completion of the 9.5-km detour, new line between Thakkolam and Arakkonam in Kancheepuram-Arakkonam section, the Chennai suburban railway network now has got the country’s longest circular route covering 235.5km.
The newly laid electrified line between will be inspected by the Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) on January 25 and is expected to be thrown open for transportation by February-end, according to official sources. The project was executed by the Construction Wing of the Railways.
The completion of the new electrified line would enable the Railways to operate trains in circular

route of Chennai Beach (0 km)-Tambaram (28.6km)-Chengalpattu (59.6km)-Kancheepuram (95.6km)-Arakkonam (123.5km)-Tiruvallur (162.3km)-Perambur (225.5km)- Chennai Beach ( 232.5km).
“So far, the Kolkata suburban railway had the longest circular route — 35 km. Once the new line is thrown open for transportation, the Chennai suburban railway will earn the distinction of having the longest circular route in the country,” said a senior official from the Southern Railway.
The Commissioner of Railway Safety will inspect the track physically and conduct a high-speed trial on January 25. Presently, the Tirupathi-Puducherry passenger train, Chengalpattu-Arakkonam passenger trains and four weekly express trains are operated with diesel locos in the Kancheepuram-Arakkonam section. “The Beach-Thirumalpur Mainline Electric Multiple Unit passenger is likely to get extended up to  Arakkonam. Initially two local trains are planned in the circular route, but a final decision is yet to be taken,” the official said.
Passengers from Kancheepuram, Kaveripakkam, Ocheri, Thirumalpur and nearby villages will now get train connectivity with both Arakkonam and Chengalpattu.The laying of the new line as part of electrification of the 27.9-km Arakkonam-Kancheepuram section has been delayed for more than 10 years, after INS Rajali Naval Airbase near Arakkonam opposed it for safety reasons. However, the Defence Ministry, later, agreed to bear the cost of the detour alignment of railway track for 9.5km between Arakkonam and Thakkolam.
In 2016 after an inordinate delay, the works commenced after the Defence Ministry deposited Rs 54.57 crore with the Railways. The project again hit a roadblock after the state government refused to allow setting up of a level-crossing on the Ocheri road. After discussions, government granted permission with a precondition that a subway be built at the earliest.

  
I guess the news reporters have not got right details.
Bandel-Bardhhaman-Katwa-Bandel is 223 kms, the current longest circular suburban section of Kolkata EMU route. Chennai will beat this by 12.5 kms now

Chennai: Ambattur Railway Station is one of the most crowded suburban spots. However, safety has not been the forte at the station even as the city is moving towards the digital age.
Social activist Pavithra Ravi brought the issue up with News Today. She said, “People are still crossing the railway crossing despite the perils that come with it. Safety is not considered by residents one bit.”
Although there is a foot over bridge (FOB) for safely getting to the other side, people find it easy to just walk past the crossing, residents

state.
“When there is an easy route or the right route, people choose the easy way. It always is the case. The crossing is for vehicles to cross when there is no train coming by. However, commuters and pedestrians alike, cross the place no matter what,” said Harish, a resident.
Asked why they do that, Janaki, a commuter said, “It is easier than walking up the stairs right? We take caution when we cross the line.” Barath, another commuter said, “It is not fair when one considers that people are ready to risk their lives rather than use the stairs. The government spent our tax money to build the staircase and yet people decide to do so.”
The worst thing however is the fact that motorists too follow the pedestrians, said Dhivakar, a resident. “At any given time, when the gates are not open, one can see bikers and pedestrians crossing the tracks. It is sad that they do that. There is an alternative route but because it is longer, people prefer to practice such an exercise that throws safety right out of the window,” he said.
“Trying to reason with them is almost useless. The government must ensure that guards are placed at such crossings so that no mishap occurs. We all read about people dying while hastily crossing train tracks. We do not understand the importance of it unless, unfortunately, we see it with our own eyes. The Railways and the government must sort this issue quickly. It is not just an issue that is present here. I think it is a nation-wide problem that needs sorting,” added Dhivakar. Residents hope the issue will be rectified by the authorities concerned at the earliest.
