Mail / Express train in India.

Get your clock at CompleteMyspace.com       
The maximum speed of trains in India is higher than some of the foreign countries.  However data on average speed of trains of other countries is not maintained by Indian Railways. The overall average speed including halts of mail and express trains running in the country for the year 2009-10 is 50.0 and 35.8 kilometers per hour for broad gauge and meter gauge respectively.  The increase/decrease in the speed of trains in last five years is as follows:
      Percentage Increase/Decrease

            Speeding up of trains is a constant endeavour and continuous process on Indian Railways and is dependent on constant optimization of the investments made by Railways in modernization of technology, high powered locos, modern coaches (LHB, air brake, CBC) and better tracks.  Railways are also coming up with dedicated freight corridors, which would lead to segregation of freight and passenger traffic and would increase average speed of both freight and passenger trains on relevant corridors.
             This information was given by the Minister of State for Railways, Shri E. Ahamed in a written reply in Rajya Sabha today.

Global Positioning System

Get your clock at CompleteMyspace.com
            A Global Positioning System (GPS) based fog safe device has been developed which displays name of approaching signs and other critical landmarks in advance even during poor visibility condition. It is expected to help reduce stress on Loco Pilots while running trains in foggy weather. It also indicates that a signal post is approaching, though it can not indicate the aspect (Red, Yellow and Green). The cost of each device is approximately Rs. 36,000.

It is proposed to provide about 1458 units for Indian Railways. Such devices are portable devices which would be carried by the Loco Pilots and put in the loco cabs at the start of the journey and would be removed and carried back with him when he leaves the locomotive after completion of his duty.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Railways, Shri E. Ahamed in a written reply in Rajya Sabha today.

Subsidized meals in running staff rest room.

Get your clock at CompleteMyspace.com
                     It was the good houners and grace of then Railway Minister Shri Laloo Prasad Yadav, who has feelt the pain and agoney of loco pilots and guard of railways,about their rest and meals.(This was true and till it is realities in running staff working life that meals and proper rest are a crucial problem.) He has brought a bill and passed order,to provide a subsidized meals to all running staff in Indian Railway immediately. Now this order is not implimented through out india properly and where in order it is not functioning in a good manner due to contractrisation in policy.
                      Law implimentor are more jeolous againt running staff.Even in several complain,no change in officers view since they are slave in contractor hand ,reason well known.Yesterday I was in YESVANTPUR  rest room  after working  indian poor people train i.e. GARIB RATH.(Mostely used by poor with ameeri people ).Their subsidized meals was not served us yesterday due to admande attitute of contractor. we made complain in complain book and tried to talk with power controller of BANGALURU and GUNTAKAL division but no fruitful reply was got. Every body said matter will forwared to concern for proper action.
                      It is not a first case we have seen,many occupant in previous had made the same remark even though  same habit are in  continuing.Where is justice prevail ?.
                     Therefore it is evident that contractorisation will not yield a good result in subsidized meals system.in running room.Railway administration has to maintain it own by their staff itself,Now it is become a more problem to take proper rest or go out side for meals and wast our valuable rest time ,which is most impotent for safety in railway,regarding all loco pilots working system.
                      In another one incident,Renigunta running room subsidized meals is also stooped since contractor left it with bag and baggage.There also problem is started.

I ndia has lost hundreds of billions of dollars

Get your clock at CompleteMyspace.com
            I ndia has lost hundreds of billions of dollars over the past six decades as companies and the rich stashed cash overseas to avoid taxes and hide ill-gotten gains, widening inequality and depriving the poor of crucial resources, a new report shows.
The flood of illegal cash has swelled to ever greater heights since the early 1990s, and averaged $16 billion a year from 2002 to 2006, as India's opening of its economy created more wealth and opportunities to move it across borders, according to the study by Dev Kar, a former International Monetary Fund economist.
Kar, now senior economist at Global Financial Integrity, a Washington DC group that researches the flow of illicit money, said India's black money - at least $462 billion since the late 1940s - could have paid for its entire infrastructure needs and much more.
"We could have had better schools, better health programs, better nutrition programs for the poor. Children could have been vaccinated and given access to fresh drinking water. Many areas don't have electricity," he said.
"The high net worth individuals are the ones driving illicit flows," Kar said.
The ministry of finance and spokespeople for the ruling government did not respond to requests for comment on the report. Other analysts aren't taking issue with Kar's research methods but question whether the blame should be pinned on companies and privately wealthy individuals. They argue the government and corrupt politicians are the main culprits.
Kar used a World Bank model to measure the gap between the nation's recorded sources of funds, like borrowing and foreign direct investment, and its recorded use of funds, like financing the current account deficit and foreign currency reserves. Illicit outflows are considered to exist when a country's recorded source of funds exceeds its recorded use of funds.
Kar supplemented that by looking at differences between the value of what India says it exports and what other nations say they import from India. This captures practices such as understating the value of export contracts to hide money overseas.
Adjusted for inflation, that all added up to $213 billion missing since 1948. Using the short-term US Treasury bill rate to estimate a conservative investment return, Kar calculated that money would be worth, at minimum, $462 billion today.
The figure could be understated by half, Kar said, partly because it doesn't cover harder to track activities including smuggling and cash transfers outside of the financial system.
Nishith Desai, founder of Nishith Desai Associates, an international tax and corporate law firm based in Mumbai, argues that corrupt officials and government agencies have more to do with illicit money than tax avoidance in the private sector, which he says is more transparent than in the past.
As individual tax rates dropped - from as high as 97.5 per cent in the 1970s to about 30 per cent today - the major motivation for tax avoidance evaporated. In its wake however, is a cultural habit of evasion, which is only now beginning to erode, he said.
Desai said officials, who face public scrutiny when they accumulate wealth while on a low government salary, have more motivation to stash illicit money overseas than company executives, and the government, as India's biggest trader, likely indulges in more manipulation of export and import contracts.
Much private-sector corruption is also done under government compulsion, he said. Though economic liberalization ended the so called License Raj - during which New Delhi kept tight, lucrative control of business permits - many opportunities for corruption remain.
Private players pouring into sectors like telecoms and banking still need licenses. This week, the telecom minister resigned over alleged licensing irregularities that may have cost the treasury 1.76 trillion rupees ($39 billion).
The government is also the major intermediary in land deals. Desai and others say bribes are common in land sales, which are proliferating as India's growth spurs the development of mines, factories, buildings and special economic zones.
Regardless of debate about who is most to blame, the report shows the tide of money has been unrelenting even as India makes some efforts to clamp down on the hidden economy.
The government has ramped up tax collection efforts and renegotiated its tax treaty with Switzerland to give it greater access to information for investigations of tax fraud. It already has good access to information from Mauritius, a major offshore financial center for rich Indians and companies.
Many hope the government's ambitious plan to give every citizen a unique identity number will also widen the tax net and make evasion harder. And under pressure from opposition politicians, the Congress Party in recent weeks forced three high-ranking officials including the telecoms minister to step down amid corruption allegations. But critics say such gestures are cosmetic and will do little to stem growing popular frustration at India's elite.
"Catch some of those high profile guys, Bollywood fellows and cricket stars and make an example out of them," Kar said.
"If they don't address this now, they're going to be stuck with a much bigger problem which will tear at the heart of India. Mark my words. People are losing patience."

Safety Related Retirement Scheme (SRRS) for Drivers and Gangmen.

Get your clock at CompleteMyspace.com

Safety Related Retirement Scheme (SRRS) was introduced in January 2004 exclusively for two frontline safety categories i.e.. Drivers and Gangmen. 

The ward of the employee seeking retirement under the scheme is considered for appointment in the respective category subject to fulfillment of eligibility / suitability etc. The existing scheme has been renamed as Liberalized Active Retirement Scheme for Guaranteed Employment for Safety Staff (LARSGESS) and will cover all safety categories including Gangman with grade pay of Rs. 1800/-. 

The condition of having minimum 33 years qualifying service has been reduced to minimum 20 years and the eligibility age group from 55-57 years to 50-57 years. However, in the case of Drivers, the condition of qualifying service i.e. 33 years and eligibility age group i.e. 55-57 will remain the same. 

The scheme will result in younger workforce and boost morale of staff by way of provision of job to their eligible dependent wards.

The Government has launched the Scheme on 26.09.2010 and the same will be implemented by the PFRDA.

RBE No.162/2010
New Delhi, dated 08.11.2010

The GMs/CAOs(R),
All Indian Railways & Production Units
(As per mailing list)

Subject: Clarifications regarding pay fixation of existing Group `D’ Employees in the revised pay structure.

Attention is invited to Railway Board’s letter of even number dated 12.01.2009 wherein clarifications were provided regarding various aspects of placement of the existing Group ‘D’ employees in the revised pay structure.

2     As per the clarification at Sl.No.1 of Railway Board’s letter dated 12.01.2009, those regular Group `D’ employees who did not posses the minimum qualification and who have retired/died in harness between 01.01.2006 and date of notification of Revised Pay Rules, 2008 will be granted pay band -IS and the grade pay corresponding to their pre-revised pay scale as notified in Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008.

3. The aforesaid issue was raised in the 46th Ordinary Meeting of the National Council (JCM) held on 15 May, 2010 and the Staff Side had requested that the cases relating to the non-matriculate class IV employees who retired or died between January 2006 and the date of Notification of Revised Pay Rules, without any re-training be re-considered and such employees should be granted the benefit by re-fixing their pension/family pension at par with those employees who were retrained and whose pay was fixed in PS-1 with grade pay of Rs.1800/-.

4.     The request of Staff Side on the subject has been considered by the Government and it has been decided that the regular Group ‘D’ non-matriculate employees who died in harness or have retired between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008, i.e. 04.09.2008, from the Railways would also be placed in PB-1 with grade pay of Rs. 1800 with effect from 01.01.2006. It should however be ensured that if any non-matriculate regular Group `D’ employees have been on leave due to which they could not be retrained, they should be retrained immediately on joining duty.

5.      This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways,

I immediately stopped my train,since it may lead to a accident.it may be serious or little,because accident never comes with invitation.Matter advised to my guard that main line starter is at on and LSS is taken OFF through Walkie-talkie set. SM on duty ,who was out side of station room and exhibiting all right signal,apprised about matter by guard and immediately operated main line starter to OFF aspect.
      The above habit of SM  is very dangerous for locopilots and safe train operation in Indian Railways.I informed this matter to CCC/GTL shri Manan sharif, My SLI/shri Tajjudin,and ON DUTY POWER CONTROLLER through Railways CUG cell phone immediatelly.
      But I got serious doubt that no one will take it  seriously and matter will be cleaned inside.So I prepared a SMS and sent to Divisional Mechanical Engineer/power and Divisional Railway Manager/GUNTAKAL.SMS details is as---------LP of 2163 to DRM.GTL at modanur home caution for main line sm and pm exibited proceed hand signal but observed that main line starter at danger and LSS proceed.train stopped 4 one mts. 4 signal.This habit is dangerous 4 LP and safety.
                  AT EVENING DRM.GTL has seen the massage and collected all details by my loco Inspector. It is heared that SM was booked to see sr. DOM.
      On arrival at Renigunta I made remarked in UN USUAL REGISTER for necessary action. Next day i.e on 12.11.2010,CSTE/SC inspected the lobby and note down all remarks.
