The Maratha quota battle received mixed response in Mumbai as most of the local trains were running normally with no or little road disruptions reported on Wednesday morning. Since morning, there was little traffic on both Western and Eastern express highways. The trains were crowded as usual. However, stray incidents of agitation on railway tracks were reported at Jogeshwari in suburban Mumbai. State-run BEST and TMT buses were damaged at Airoli and Thane respectively. There were 9 separate cases of BEST buses being damaged which include deflating tyres and breaking windshield.

Don't give us jugaad AC locals: Western Railways tells Centre 19.7.2018 DNA: Money
"Don't give us 'jugaad' air-conditioned (AC) locals," Western Railways authorities have told their higher-ups in New Delhi, with an official letter to that effect to be written soon. The ire comes after the railway body discovered many glitches in the existing local. The main bone of contention is that the assembled unit is riddled with errors which would be easier to resolve if the entire rake and systems within it were made by one agency. This would also make complaint redressal smoother, feel WR authorities. "We want that the next AC train to be manufactured as a single unit, rather than being assembled," said a WR official. Authorities say the local, which runs 12 services a day, consumes a lot of time. For instance, where a regular rake halts at stations for 15 to 20 seconds, an AC local stops for about 40-45 seconds due to the additional time needed for automatic doors to open and shut. There have been complaints of doors not closing, and temperature fluctuations. Apart from this, WR authorities ...

Mumbai: Railways may replace guards with motormen 18.7.2018 DNA: Opinion
The men who are the first responders during any unwarranted incident involving a local train – the Guards, are at the risk of losing their posts. The Railway Board is toying with the idea of replacing the 'guard' with 'motormen' on suburban EMUs or local trains. Upset with this information, the National Railway Mazdoor Union protested at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) on July 17. On June 11, the Railway Board in Delhi had a workshop on increasing average speeds of trains. Senior railway officials said that 25 points were discussed at time. "One of the things was that in suburban section motormen and guards are different but both ends should be manned by motormen," said a senior rail official. The Railway Board members were to take a call on June 30. When contacted chairman of Railway Board Ashwani Lohani said, "I will have to check about the same and inform later." The rail unions claim that a trial was conducted on goods train. "The post of a guard comes under safety category. This is a ...

Mumbai Rains: It's a long swim home for Vasai after its 26/7 12.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Life started limping back to normalcy in the Nallasapora-Vasai belt on Wednesday, which was marooned by the torrential rains for the past three days. On Wednesday afternoon, wading through waterlogged streets in many parts of Palghar district, residents stepped out to buy bare essentials. A spot visit made by the DNA team revealed the plight of common people, who had to shell out extra money for vegetables, milk and water. Many residents across the western suburbs complained of vegetables becoming dearer and shortage of milk. Bottled water, that is normally sold at Rs 30 was being sold at Rs 80, while one litre milk was being sold for Rs 100. Several officegoers said that they would resume work on Thursday if the water subsided and the rain gods had mercy. Even as mobile network, electricity and rail connectivity remained erratic, the Western Railway stated that local train services were running normal between Dahanu and Churchgate. Trains ran at 10 km per hour on the Nallasopara-Vasai belt. On ...

Mumbai Rains: That sinking feeling! 11.7.2018 DNA: Top News
In one of the worst breakdowns the city has seen in the past monsoons, Vasai, Virar and Palghar were cut off from Mumbai by the heavy rains that lashed the region on Tuesday. Road and rail connectivity was cut off by waterlogging, and Vasai and Virar also lost electricity. Meanwhile, the state government announced in the Assembly that the rains have claimed 62 persons in the state since June, and the Supreme Court lashed out at the government for not looking into the issue of solid waste management which it believed was one of the causes of the current waterlogging crisis. "You see," said a bench of Justices M B Lokur and Deepak Gupta, "Delhi is getting buried under mountain loads of garbage and Mumbai is sinking. But yet, the government does not do anything. When the courts intervene, we are attacked for judicial activism." In the state assembly, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis assured the House that all systems had been alerted and the NDRF (National Disaster Response Force), Coast Guards as well as ...

Why must all decisions be taken in Delhi: Bombay High Court to Railways 11.7.2018 DNA: Top News
The Bombay High Court rapped the Railways on Tuesday for it's callous approach towards Mumbai, urging that a special committee be set up only for the city's suburban division to check on issues related to crowd management, foot-over-bridges and so on. "Why should every decision be taken in Delhi? Decentralise the power," said the division bench comprising Justices Naresh Patil and Girish Kulkarni. "Mumbai locals should be managed by special local body. A disaster management team of railways should be in place for Mumbai too." The bench has directed senior railway officials to consider its suggestions, and reply in two weeks. The bench also recommended privatising management of suburban train platforms to ensure better services as both Central and Western Railways are unable to do so. "Does the Railways not know the areas prone to waterlogging? Yet for years, it has done nothing to lift the tracks. Ever year, Mumbai faces the same problem," the division bench said, while referring to reports of tracks ...

Mumbai: Rains hit fast & furious, city shrugs and carries on 10.7.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Heavy rains, yet again, crippled regular life in Mumbai and its adjoining areas on Monday. Traffic on the roads was slow moving, trains were running late and the government declared a holiday for schools and colleges in the Mumbai metropolitan region. The Mumbai University also announced that examinations will be rescheduled for students who could not appear for it on Monday. The local trains crawled, but did not stop even though it rained heavily continuously. Of the 3,087 services daily, the Central and Western Railways collectively cancelled close to 110 services. However, there was waterlogging on some locations on both CR and WR, which delayed over 250 services as trains ran late by 20-25 minutes on an average. Some long-distance trains to Gujarat and northern states were halted at Borivali, as tracks near Nallasopara and Virar were submerged. The trains left after a delay of about one hour, a WR spokesperson said. Road traffic was also hit in areas like King's Circle, Suman Nagar, Mulund Sonapur ...
