Instead, it will have a single stall, creating more space for commuters.The other part, the hungry passengers would have to do away with buying their favourites such as samosa, vada pav, ragda, cold drinks and other eatables from the platforms. The railway authorities also claimed that during recent inspections, they have analysed the condition of the food stalls that have been leased on a contract basis.This will include length and breadth of the food stalls on platforms and its concourse area, its total number at every station, number of daily commuters using a station, et cetera.The officials said that the stalls attract a large number of buyers, thereby creating a congestion during peak hours.Railway minister Piyush Goyal, on Saturday, had spoken about decongesting railway stations and make it easy for the mobility of passengers.”The stations in the suburban section is mainly used by office-goers. We need to cater to faster dispersal and passenger movement rather than providing food,” said a senior railway official.”A concept, Multi-Purpose Stall (MPS), has already been approved by the Railway Board,” said a senior railway official “This is to ensure availability of space and decongesting at stations”.The single-stall would keep packed food, medicines, newspapers, books and magazines, milk and cold drinks. The Divisional Railway Manager of each division (the Central and Western Railways has each DRM for Mumbai) will decide the number of MPS and forward it to the Chief Commercial Manager for approval and calling tenders. Once the safety studies are complete, this mechanism would be put into force.
<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Delhi government has approved the procurement of 1,000 DTC buses which was stuck for the last six years. The procurement of buses will also mean a revival of the DTC, which has not had a single new bus to its fleet since 2010.”This will revamp the entire mechanism for the maintenance of the buses. The decision was approved in a late night meeting on Tuesday. The decision will now be put in front of the next cabinet for the approval,” said a senior government official.Tenders for the long-pending 1,000 DTC buses have been floated several times over the past two years. However, there has been no outcome each time.”The move will also aim at re-orienting the entire structure of the DTC buses,” added the official.The number of buses in the DTC fleet is 4,020, out of which about 400 are unavailable on average every day due to breakdowns. The Delhi Integrated Multi-Model Transit System (DIMTS) runs 1,612 buses under the cluster bus services.The total number of buses — which ferry more than 32 lakh passengers every day — is grossly inadequate compared to the estimated need, which is about 10,000 to 11,000 buses.The AAP government in 2015 had promised to add 10,000 buses to the DTC fleet and 736 cluster buses. However, while no new DTC buses have been procured, only 215 cluster buses were added.In needDTC has not added any new bus in its fleet since 2013. This move will help DTC deal with the shortage of buses.However, trained maintenance workers are also needed for running the dept.
<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The Delhi Transport Department has started the process of procuring 2,000 new buses with the first lot expected to hit the roads by early next year. The government will buy 1,000 buses each for the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) and the cluster scheme of the Delhi Integrated Multi Modal Transit System (DMITS). “Right now the thinking is to go for 1,000 buses each for the DTC and the cluster scheme, considering the factors of available depot space and the speed with which the manufacturers can deliver the buses. “The first batch of the buses is expected to arrive early next year,” said a senior government official. The process of floating a tender is expected to be started in next few months, said the officer. At present, around 5,200 buses, including 4,000 DTC and 2,200 cluster scheme buses, are plying across the city, but there is a need of 16,000 more buses to deal with the growing passenger traffic. The process of procuring new buses was stuck up for some times due to different reasons with the AAP government being attacked by the BJP and the Congress for not being able to buy even a single bus during its over two-year rule.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>RJD president Lalu Prasad today refused to make any comment on the Supreme Court order asking him to face separate trials in each of the cases related to the multi-crore fodder scam in which he is an accused. “My lawyers will speak on the issue,” he said in reply to a question by reporters. “Koi comment nahi (No comment),” Lalu quipped. It is for the first time that the RJD supremo has broken his silence on the apex court order two days ago asking him to face separate trials in each of the cases related to the multi-crore fodder scam in which he is an accused. The gates of his wife Rabri Devi’s official residence, 10, Circular Road, had remained shut for reporters for the past two days to avoid uncomfortable questions on the fodder scam in the wake of the SC order. The RJD supremo received a setback when the apex court on Monday held that Prasad has to face separate trials in each of the cases in which he is an accused in the multi-crore fodder scam and if found guilty, he may be punished separately. Of the 64 cases arising from the scam, Yadav has been named as accused in six cases and he has already been convicted in one of the case involving fraudulent withdrawal of Rs 37.70 crore from Chaibasa treasury between 1994-1995. At present, Prasad is out on bail after his conviction in one of the six fodder scam cases. In reply to another question on allegations of EVM tampering, Prasad said RJD national spokesman Manoj Jha will represent the party at an all-party meeting convened by the Election Commission on May 12 to discuss the issue.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
