DNA EXCLUSIVE: Maha CM-led panel to play role in making Mumbai's rail stations safer and better 21.1.2018 DNA: Opinion
Nearly four months after 23 people were crushed to death on an overcrowded bridge at Elphinstone Road Station, the state has formed a panel headed by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to join the Railways' efforts in making Mumbai's local stations safer and better. The government has set up a Cabinet sub-committee, also comprising Education Minister Vinod Tawde and Transport Minister Diwakar Raote, with a mandate to review the present status of safety at the stations, foot overbridges, and suggest measures for improvement. The stampede of September 29, 2017 had sparked a public outcry against government apathy towards issues like congestion and narrow and fewer FOBs at stations. This had prompted the Railways to rope in the Army to build a bridge at the north end of Elphinstone Road station connecting to Parel station. According to a state official, the January 19 government notification on the formation of the sub-committee coincides with the work being carried out by the Army at Elphinstone Road. "In ...

Railways to foot power bills to keep toilets stink-free 21.1.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
After officials found that contractors managing the toilets at rail stations on the Central Railway were switching off fans at the lavatories to save power thus leaving the loos stinking, the authorities have decided to foot the electricity bills.  The CR has sent a proposal to the higher-ups for approval. The Railways has given contracts for pay-and-use toilets for better management. During a recent surprise check, senior CR officials were shocked to find that the contractors had been turning off electricity supply to save money.  On the CR, there are 117 toilet blocks of which 37 of them have been given on contract basis where the pay-and-use system is in place. Here one has to pay Re 1 to use the urinals. There have been complaints that gullible users are at times made to pay much more to use the facilities.  The Western Railway, on the other hand, has 34 free urinals and 23 blocks where users are charged. WR officials say they use good quality disinfectants to keep the toilets clean and ...

FM may give fillip to rural investment 19.1.2018 DNA: Popular News
The countdown to the Union Budget 2018 – to be presented in Parliament on 1st February 2018 – has already begun. We believe the finance minister will have to do a tightrope walk – meet high expectations of growth stimulus in a pre-election year without disturbing the hard-achieved gains of fiscal consolidation – to get thumbs up for his Budget. Private investment, rural sector and fiscal balance may be prioritised in the 2018 Budget, in our view. First, we expect the government to postpone the 3% deficit target by one year to 2019-20 for the third consecutive year and peg FY19 deficit at 3.2% of GDP (We had estimated FY18 fiscal deficit at 3.5% of GDP; however, the government released an issuance calendar on December 27, 2017 suggesting it will undertake additional borrowings. This makes it difficult to understand the government’s position on FY18 fiscal deficit. Thus, if FY18 deficit is revised higher to 3.5% of GDP, FY19 deficit – in extreme case – could also be pegged at 3.5% of GDP). This would imply ...
