NEW DELHI: Citing safety reasons, railways has decided to remove curtains put on pathways of all air- conditioned three-tier (3 AC) coaches of trains.

However, the curtains from windows of 3 AC coaches will continue, officials said.

Decision to remove curtains was taken on recommendation of Commissioner of Railways Safety (CoRS) following its enquiry into causes of last year’s fire in Bangalore-Nanded Express train, that left at least 26 people dead in Andhra Pradesh.

New Delhi: The Competition Commission has ordered an investigation against Indian Railways and its arm IRCTC for alleged unfair practices related to compulsory sale of food to travellers on some trains and ticket booking. 

This is the second major probe by the fair trade watchdog against a central government enterprise, after Coal India. 

The Competition Commission of India’s (CCI) latest investigation came on a complaint filed against the Ministry of Railways and the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Ltd (IRCTC). 

The probe would also look into the possible role of individuals related to the matter. 

“The Commission is of the opinion that prima facie, a case of contravention of the provisions of the (Competition) Act is made out against IR (Indian Railways) and IRCTC,” the watchdog said in an order made public today. 

Passengers being compulsory charged for catering facility on the Rajdhani and other trains, as well as alleged unfair conditions in the sale of Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duranto catering and travel services “prima facie” appear to be violating competition norms, CCI said.

Besides, levying premium charges for calls made to 139, which is the railway enquiry service, restricting the services of agents authorised by IRCTC, among others, have also come under the scanner. 

“Service charge imposed on e-tickets being non-refundable even if the passenger needed to cancel the ticket; e-wallet scheme with unreasonable conditions appear to be some of their conducts” which have also been found to be prima facie in violation of competition rules. 

As per the order dated February 28, the Commission has asked its Director General (DG) to carry out a detailed probe into the matter. 

The DG would also look at the role, if any, of persons in these entities who were responsible for the conduct of the businesses.

“Transportation of passenger through railway in India” appears to be the relevant market in the present case, the order said. 

Such a market would also include the ancillary segment like ticketing, catering on board and platform facilities, among others, it added. 

The allegations of the three complainants essentially relate to the conduct of Indian Railways with respect to the services provided by its subsidiary IRCTC

Chennai Rajdhani has one of the most aggressive schedules on Indian Railways, given the distance it covers. The train travels for 2,175 kilometres, in a little over 28 hours, which include at least two stretches where the train is restricted to a top speed of 110 kmph. Regardless, the train maintains a fine tempo, as the Lallaguda WAP7 leads it across 6 states into the national capital of Delhi. 
This collection documents the major station skips undertaken by the 12433 Chennai Rajdhani Express. A large number of skips occur in the 431 km non-stop run from Chennai to Vijayawada. We initially have three slow skips of Gudur, Nellore and Bitragunta in Andhra Pradesh, before picking up some good speed through Kavali. Ongole is covered at a sedate pace but we are again at our best through Chirala. Post Vijayawada, the Chennai Rajdhani really opens up in 120 kmph territory. The train simply flies through the relatively large stations of Khammam, Dornakal, Ramagundam and Manchiriyal, hitting 115-120 kmph in each case. At Sirpur Kaghaznagar, we overtake the Kerala Express. As evening fell, we entered the Bhusaval-Nagpur stretch through the magnificent Sewagram curve. 
I was rather tired after being on high alert through the day and went to sleep early, missing the night time skips of Betul, Amla, Narkher, Itarsi, Vidisha, Bina and Lalitpur. That was however made up by the Chennai Rajdhani’s blitz post Jhansi. We were around 15-20 minutes delayed at Jhansi, and the Rajdhani went on a rampage through the rugged terrain of Madhya Pradesh. The skip of Morena at 130 kmph marks one of the fastest passages which I have witnessed on Indian Railways. There was a restriction at Dhaulpur and we cruised through Mathura: our last major skip enroute Delhi.
