Stoppage time of the train Tirupati Special at Balaji in Dahar is 10 minutes, but being dispatched only after 5 minutes
Railway maintains time table: 10 minutes stoppage of Tirupati Special at Balaji in Dahar, but was dispatched 5 minutes earlier
In order to provide relief to the passengers of Tirupati Balaji and Shirdi Sai Baba, the Railways had started two superfast special trains, but due to the arbitrariness in their operation, the passengers are getting upset. The stoppage time of the train here is 10 minutes, but it is being dispatched only after 5 minutes. In view of the pressure of trains at Jaipur station, they are operated from Balaji of Jaipur's suburban station Dahar. In such a situation, accordingly, the schedule and stoppages of trains have been fixed at different stations, but they are not stopped at Jaipur station according to the fixed stoppages.
Although the train leaves at the time of its departure, due to being late, it is dispatched early with the halt timing. Reservation experts Ajay Kashmiri and Jitendra Kaushik say that due to lack of publicity, passenger load was not getting in both these trains, but 85 percent passenger load started getting in both the trains. If the railways get more than 60 percent passenger load in a train, then it operates it continuously.
At the station, passengers are not even informed about reducing the stoppage time, due to which they keep running to sit later. Often in such a situation, there is a fear of an accident. On Saturday, Shubham reached Jaipur station to drop off the Gaur family. Jahan Dahar Balaji-Tirupati Superfast Special (09715) arrived 5 minutes behind schedule at 9:20 PM. In such a situation, the passengers started sitting on the train, but the scheduled halt timing left in 5 minutes instead of 10 minutes.
Due to heavy baggage, Shubham had to quickly board the coach and get down from the moving train. Although the train was not in speed, Shubham and his family were terrified by this incident. When a senior railway official was asked by Bhaskar, on the condition of anonymity, he told that the pressure of trains at many major stations including Jaipur and before the scheduled halt timings when trains are late to maintain punctuality. is dispatched.
Railway has given verbal orders to the guards through the station management to operate the trains according to their understanding. On Sunday also, the train going from Ajmer to Jabalpur reached Jaipur at 5:31 pm, which was dispatched after giving a halt of 4 minutes.
The train cannot be dispatched before the scheduled departure, but sometimes the halt timing is reduced due to the pressure of the trains. After the construction of the new terminal station of Khatipura, this problem will be solved.
