goods trains or take the well-trodden path and add passenger trains In the recent past railway ministers have not played the role they ought to (Source: AP) Related News The point of interest in this railway budget is the manner in which Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu plans to address the high working ratio which hovers around 90 per cent implying that to earn one rupee 90 paise is spent If depreciation is added to the working ratio one gets the operating ratio which will clearly be beyond 100 There is a general belief within Indian Railways that the operating ratio has been above 100 for some time No organisation can exist if it spends more than it earns year after year The extreme populism adopted by some ministers over the last two decades stalled routine increases in passenger fares To meet expenses Indian Railways was forced to increase freight traffic sometimes twice a year This populism has brought the railways to the present condition Prabhu is of course aware of these issues and appointed former secretary (financial services) DK Mittal to head a committee which gave its recommendations last month indicating a framework for increasing passenger fares along with rising costs These recommendations will not solve the immediate problems — raising passenger fares to increase revenue immediately and holding on to the hike in the face of demands for a rollback It has to be seen what Prabhu actually does The second issue is the introduction of passenger trains for political considerations RC Acharya a former member of the Railway Board recently observed that a passenger train earns Rs 450 per kilometre at the most against Rs 4500 per km for a goods train Will Prabhu lean towards goods trains or take the well-trodden path and add passenger trains In the recent past railway ministers have not played the role they ought to Evidently the way forward for Indian Railways depends on how the minister decides and not on the decision-making of the Railway Board This is because of the way the governance of Indian Railways is structured It is a commercial organisation owned by the government and run as a government department which make the railway minister the head of the organisation He or she therefore has a dual role as minister and as the head of a large commercial organisation The Railway Board is structured as an operational body for running trains managing the day-to-day functions of Indian Railways Parliament takes the decisions normally taken by shareholders and the Union cabinet plays the role that a company’s board usually does The minister becomes managing director because he is the only one present in Parliament and meetings of the cabinet Prabhu will have to take the decisions a managing director usually does to keep the company in sound financial health But even greater challenges await him in the near future The emerging markets which used to be seen as global engines of growth are under a shadow of gloom today The Chinese economy has slowed Brazil is suffering stagflation and Russia is in recession because of sanctions and the fall in oil prices South Africa is plagued by inefficiency and corruption In this picture of gloom there is only one exception and that is India The country could become a global high flyer if it gets some things right It has been estimated that India grew at 75 per cent in 2013-14 and could sustain growth at this rate If that does happen Indian Railways will have to move much faster than it does at present Normally demand for transport grows at a faster rate than the overall growth rate Therefore the challenge of improving the financial health of the organisation will be a small problem in comparison with the challenge of keeping up with economic growth Capacities will have to be increased quite quickly How Prabhu does this when Indian Railways remains a department of the government and run by a civil service is a question that he will have to ponder and answer The

the North and South and one in the East In May alone the civic bodies had impounded over 700 cattle However for the past month the shelters have being turning away cattle as they are “filled to capacity” Stating that the situation has become “critical” over the last one month Director Animal Husbandry Delhi government Dr Jitendra Kumar Gaur told The Indian Express “Stray cattle is a big problem A solution to this will be found at the earliest” Last year the North civic body caught over 4300 stray cattle while the South corporation caught almost the same number from areas under their jurisdiction On an average the three MCDs pick up approximately 500 stray cattle per month officials said In May the North Delhi Municipal Corporation had impounded 105 cattle the East civic body 300 and South 306 For the past month the shelters have being turning away cattle as they are “filled to capacity” The corporation and the animal husbandry department of the state government contribute Rs 20 each per cow per day towards the maintenance of cattle in these gaushalas The purpose of a gaushala is to provide shelter to stray cattle that do not produce milk This includes feeding and medical care While the North civic body had issues with overcrowding the SDMC raised concerns with the Delhi government regarding the management of the two gaushalas in its area — Acharya Sushil Muni Gau

months The management of a gaushala in Kishangarh stated that while they have the capacity to house around 1000 cattle they currently are holding 1700 According to Dr Gaur the solutions available to the government are to change the “pathetic conditions” of some gaushalas and accommodate cattle there or to stop the influx of cattle from other states “Right now two gaushalas in Bawana and Harevli are accommodating most of the cattle But the influx has to be controlled else the situation could become critical” he said For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related News
