South Central Railway GMâ€™s Republic Day Message
Dear members of the Railway family,
on the momentous occasion of the 65th Republic Day, I extend my warm greetings to all members of the South Central Railway family. As we hoist our national tri-color on this august day, let us rededicate ourselves to the cause of Nationâ€™s unity and progress.
It is my privilege and honour to lead South Central Railway, a premiere Zone of Indian Railways, and I look forward to take this Zone to new frontiers of success through our collective endeavours in the days ahead.
I am happy to share with you that SCRâ€™s performance in the current financial year so far has been encouraging. The gross earnings for the period April-December 2013 were Rs. 7691 Crs, which is 474 Crs higher compared to last year, with a growth rate of 6.6%. 78 million tonnes of originating freight has been loaded during this period. At present, we carry around 10.8 lakhs of originating passengers on an average per day. Our operating ratio, which is a key indicator of financial health, is maintained at 85%. We have generated an operating surplus of Rs. 2872 Crs till the end of Decâ€™13.
Our top priority areas are â€“ safety and security; punctuality; improved services to passengers and infrastructure development to meet future needs. I re-emphasize that utmost importance should be given to safety and security of the passengers on our system. Due to conscious efforts made in this direction, the number of consequential train accidents so far this year has declined by 50% over last year. We ought to ensure foolproof functioning of safety mechanisms at various levels so as to eliminate any scope for any untoward incident. Some of the measures taken to enhance safety include - elimination of unmanned level crossings, technical upgradation of assets, frequent inspections, special safety drives, safety audits and counseling of staff etc.
We are continuously strengthening the security apparatus at stations and also in trains. Escorting of trains, security surveillance and weeding out unauthorized persons from railway premises constitute the key elements in our security scheme. 234 RPF personnel in 81 trains and 186 GRP personnel in 110 trains have been deployed for escort duty in identified vulnerable sections. We are in the process of hiring the services of home guards from state government to increase the scale of escort. 431 closed circuit cameras have been installed at 31 major stations for security surveillance. Through relentless drives, stringent action is being taken against trespassers and unauthorized persons in railway area to facilitate a secure environment.
In response to the rail travel needs of the public, 9 new originating trains have been introduced on SCR during the period Apr-Dec. 2013. 593 special trains were run and 6849 extra coaches were attached benefiting 7.5 lakh passengers in this period. To maximize the passenger carrying capacities, the composition of 14 trains has been augmented by attaching 62 additional coaches on a permanent basis. It is a matter of pride for us that SCRâ€™s punctuality performance at 98% is currently the best on Indian Railways. Close tracking of the running of trains should continue to sustain this lead.
A pleasing ambience and a qualitative service at stations and on-board are essential to make the rail journey a pleasant experience for our passengers. Focused steps taken in this direction include- mechanized cleaning at stations and coaching depots; on-Board Housekeeping Services in 35 trains; enroute cleaning of 66 long distance express trains; progressive induction of bio-toilets; supply of quality linen from mechanized laundries and improved catering services through base kitchens etc.
We are strongly committed to regular upgradation of passenger amenity infrastructure to provide modern facilities to passengers. on SCR, there are 647 sanctioned passenger amenity works worth Rs. 438 Crs. at present. While we spent Rs. 88 Crs last year on these works, 66 Crs have already been spent this fiscal so far.
42 stations have been modernized as â€˜Adarshâ€™ until now. Works are under progress to develop â€˜Adarshâ€™ stations at 9 more locations. To enhance passenger comfort, 30 lifts and 17 escalators have so far been commissioned at 13 stations. Action has been initiated to install 30 more lifts and 32 escalators at 21 stations shortly.
To take care of the enquiry needs of the commuters in twin cities, a GPS/GPRS based system of real - time information display through 215 HD LED monitors has been set up at all the 26 MMTS stations. I am delighted to inform you that leveraging this system, an android based mobile application is also being developed on SCR, which is a first on Indian Railways. It enables the passengers to view on their smart phones the current location of trains in twin cities on real time basis.
Expansion of railway network and services is imperative to meet the developmental requirements of the society and economy. This Zone has got immense potential for further growth in passenger and freight traffic. Unless we remove the bottlenecks in trains operations and take up capacity enhancement works, we may not be able to satisfy the growing demands from our customers. Emphasis is being given to speed up the pace of execution of the prioritized railway infrastructural works. I am happy to inform you that we have recently commissioned 2 new railway lines â€“ one is a 59 kms long line between Gadwal and Raichur, at a cost of Rs. 300 Crs and the other is a 37 kms long stretch between Humnabad and Khanapur, at a cost of Rs. 200 Crs. Electrification of two major sections on Mumbai route â€“ Renigunta to Guntakal and Lingampalli to Wadi â€“ has also been completed to enable a seamless travel.
The most valuable asset of SCR is its dedicated and vibrant work force. We are responsive to their needs and every effort is being made towards their well being. Several staff welfare activities are being pursued under the Staff Benefit Fund. The fund has provided scholarships worth 2.17 crores to 2685 students this year so far.
I appreciate the positive role being played by trade unions in amicable resolution of various issues, which facilitated a cordial work environment on SCR. The welfare oriented social activities of SCR women welfare organization are highly laudable. I also compliment the SCR Andhra Lalitha Kala Samithi for their commendable role in promoting arts and culture in this region. I would like to acknowledge the selfless service being rendered by the SCRâ€™s Civil Defence and Scouts & Guides units in times of need. on the sports front, our Zone is proud of the fact that some of the best sports talent in the country dons its colours.
We should not get self-satisfied over our past achievements. Progress should be continuous and sustainable. We should adopt ourselves to new technologies and modern management practices to meet the ever rising expectations from the public. Each one of us should strive to bring in innovations and systemic improvements in our day-to-day working so as to get the maximum possible output from our scarce resources.
on this solemn occasion, I call up on all the members of the railway fraternity to renew our commitment to the service of our great nation and resolve to achieve the set goals of SCR. I am sure that our combined efforts in this direction will propel SCR to new peaks of performance in near future.
Jai Hind !
