Railway Budget 2011-12

 

Excerpts from the speech of Kumari Mamata Banerjee, Minister of Railways, introducing the Railway Budget 2011-12 on 25th February 2011 (para numbers as in original speech)

 

Highlights for North Eastern Region and Sikkim

 

1. Madam Speaker, I rise to present before this august House the Revised Estimates for 2010-11 and the estimated receipts and expenditure for 2011-12. I deem it an honour to present the third Railway Budget under the kind guidance of the hon'ble Prime Minister. I profusely thank the Finance Minster for his continued support and encouragement to the railways.

 

9. I appreciate that the demands of every hon'ble member and citizens are genuine. It is their right and I fully understand. I would like to help them as much as I could but for constraints of coaches, locomotives and line capacity. Thus it is difficult to meet every individual demand. We have tried to meet some of the demands collectively within the limited resources. I would like to assure the House if we are positive, if we go according to Vision 2020, we can meet the demand within a short period. I believe in positive approach and action. As Swami Vivekananda said :

 

23. Madam, I am happy to announce setting up of a "Rail Industrial Park" at Jellingham. This Park will be a cluster of diverse industrial units whose output will be consumed by the railways. The Park will initially focus on high volume safety and vital components. With this, we shall make a beginning towards creating a global hub in India for the railway industry. A unit to manufacture car steel bogies and couplers through a joint venture between Burn Standard Co. Ltd. and SAIL has already been initiated in this Park. I also propose to set up a Rail Industrial Park at New Bongaigaon.

 

25. I propose to set up more mechanized laundries for improving the quality of linen in trains at Nagpur, Chandigarh and Bhopal, in addition to Wadibunder, Tikiyapara, Kamakhya, Secunderabad, Kacheguda, Indore, Lucknow, Banaras, Samastipur, Sealdah, Tatanagar, Danapur, Bikaner, Bilaspur, Durg, Hatia, Chennai, Mumbai and Ahmedabad, where they are commissioned or are being set up. Proposals for laundries at Vishakhapatnam, Bhubaneshwar, Puri, Gwalior, Manduadih, Gorakhpur, Lucknow, New Jalpaiguri, Jammu, Delhi, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Tirupati, Ernakulam, Thiruvananthapuram, Hubli, Bengaluru, Yashwantpur, Jabalpur, Allahabad, Mau, Amethi and Kota are also under examination.

 

37. A non-lapsable Fund for railway projects in the northeast region has been created that will boost the progress of projects. All the state capitals of this region except Sikkim will get connected by rail network in the next seven years. The prestigious Udhampur-Srinagar-Baramulla project is also progressing and work on India's longest tunnel between Banihal and Qazigund would be completed this year.

 

40. In my first tenure, I had approved the introduction of Anti Collision Device (ACD). After ten years I find that it has been implemented only on NF railway. Madam, our recent trials with an improved version of ACD have met with success and it will be commissioned on three zonal railways, Southern, South Central and South Western Railways. Considering the successful trials, I have decided to extend this device to Eastern, East Coast, East Central and South Eastern Railways. With this we will have covered 8 of the 17 zonal railways.

 

50. Upgradation of stations would provide safe drinking water, pay & use toilets, high-level platforms, better accessibility for the physically challenged among many other facilities at these stations. I would like to assure all the hon'ble members that all the suggestion for Adarsh stations given by them have been included in the following list of 236 stations. I will be happy to receive suggestions from the hon'ble members to add more stations.
