Top Comment
Free rides, Free eye check up, Free dental camp, now this. CMRL is a Special Purpose Vehicle which should create a positive impact on the lives of people of the people of Chennai. Instead, it should not sell a potential, world class metro through such ideas. The future of Chennai''s transportation can change with metro provided the fares are reasonable (on par with MTC or could be a little higher considering the standards of a metro. Currently it''s ridiculously high). More the people, more the revenue. Central metro may be bigger than Delhi''s Rajiv Chowk and Kashmere Gate but will the footfalls be the same? I doubt if people would throng Central metro station with CMRL charging like this.

The race to the top post of the National High Speed Rail Corporation, which will put on tracks the ambitious bullet train project, has heated up. Seven people have been shortlisted from around 30 applicants for the post of the Managing Director of the corporation. The selection will take place this month.
The shortlist before the search committee, headed by the Cabinet Secretary, is dominated by civil engineers. Only one of the candidates is a current, full-time officer of Railways, while the remaining are civil engineers working with other organisations, like metro projects and rail PSUs.
What Else Is making News
Among the shortlisted applicants is Achal Khare, a senior Indian Railways officer currently working as Adviser (Infrastructure) and heading the directorate in Railway Ministry that looks after the high-speed project and has conceived the new company.
Two directors from the Board of Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation Limited — Anshuman Sharma, Director (Project Planning) and D S Rana Director (Infrastructure) have also been shortlisted.
Sailesh Kumar Pathak, currently the Commissioner of Railway Safety (Northern Circle) under the Ministry of Civil Aviation, is the only one in the list who is neither from an SPV nor a PSU and is not involved in any kind of “project implementation” in the strictest sense.
Two members of the boards of metro railways — Mahendra Kumar, Director (Rolling Stock and Systems) at Lucknow Metro, and Subodh Gupta, Director (Project) at Mumbai Metro have also been shortlisted. They are joined by R S Khurana, Director (Project) at Mumbai Railway Vikas Corporation Limited.
Sources said the basic criteria to apply for the post included an age limit of 55 years and a Higher Administrative Grade rank. Thanks to that, many so-called heavyweights were out of the race in the initial screening.
Even though the criteria laid down were service-neutral, not a single non-engineer has been shortlisted.
The three-member search committee is headed by Cabinet Secretary P K Sinha and includes Chairman, Railway Board, A K Mital, and Secretary, Department of Personnel and Training, B P Sharma. After the selection of the MD, posts of other directors in the corporation will be filled.

Southern Railway and Madurai Division may consider some stoppages of express and super fast trains in Thirumangalam,Tiruparangundram,Koodalnagar and Madurai East stations to avoid congestion in Madurai Junction.Also originating and terminating some passenger trains from Tirumangalam and Koodalnagar.
Moreover 16339 Mumbai CST- Nagercoil express daily stopped at Tirupparangundram and Tirumangalam for crossing two trains in each station for more than 20 to 30 minute without official commercial stoppages.At-least make official commercial stoppages for this train for booking to Mumbai area.But regular commuter and passenger persuasively know that it is a regular stoppage for this train.
