From the above link JTJ is being categorized as A1 Station, Which has an annual income of 19.3 crores during 2014-2015.

This is making the rules for station grade more complex

Press Information Bureau
Government of India
Ministry of Railways
28-December-2017 13:06 IST
Minister of Railways directs to re-categorize railway stations taking into account earnings, passenger footfall, strategic importance

Ministry of Railways has comprehensively revised categories of various Railway Stations

In new scheme of station categorization, even the small stations, because of footfall criteria, to get the higher level of passenger amenities leading to better passenger satisfaction.



In a major policy decision, Ministry of Railways has comprehensively revised categories of various Railway Stations with a view to make it more practical and rational. This comes after the Minister of Railways & Coal, Shri Piyush Goyal directed to re-categorize railway stations taking into account earnings, passenger footfall, strategic importance with a view to plan various passenger services and passenger amenities at stations in a more effective and focused manner. It will also help the passenger to have a better experience in relation to travel amenities at stations.

The earlier criteria for station categorisation was based on the annual passenger earnings only. Stations were categorised into 7 categories which A-1, A, B, C, D, E and F. The criteria for categorisation of stations have now been revised to include footfalls at the station. The stations have been further segregated based on the type and clubbed into 3 groups i.e. non-suburban (NS), suburban (S) and Halt (H). Further these groups have been put in grades ranging from NSG1-6, SG1-3 and HG1-3 respectively.



In the old criteria the number of stations with high passenger footfalls (handling high number of commuter and MST pass holders etc.) could not be covered into the higher category of station which led to these stations being eligible for lower level of amenities. As per the new criteria the number of footfalls has also been given equal weightage and is taken into account as criteria for categorisation of stations. Therefore, many stations like Kalyan, Panvel, Tambaram, Thane have qualified into the higher category and become eligible for higher level of passenger amenities.

Under this new scheme of categorization of railway stations, the stations have been clubbed into 3 groups namely Non-Suburban, Suburban and Halt. Further, these groups have been put in different grades ranging from 1-6. Accordingly following categories have been formed.







Category of stations

Criteria of Earnings (in Rs.)

Criteria of outward Passengers handled

I. Non-Suburban

NSG 1

More than 500 Crore

More than 20 Million

NSG 2

100 to 500 Crore

10 to 20 Million

NSG 3

20 to 100 Crore

05 to 10 Million

NSG 4

10 to 20 Crore

02 to 05 Million

NSG 5

01 to 10 Crore

01 to 02 Million

NSG 6

Upto 01 Crore

Upto 01 Million

Total of (I) 5976

II. Suburban

SG 1

More than 25 Crore

More than 30 Million

SG 2

10 to 25 Crore

10 to 30 Million

SG 3

Upto 10 Crore

Upto 10 Million

Total of (II) 484

III. Halts

HG 1

More than 50 Lakh

More than 03 lakh

HG 2

05 to 50 lakh

01 to 03 lakh

HG 3

Upto 05 lakh

Upto 01 lakh

Total of (III) 2153

Total Number of stations (I+II+III) 8613


Presently, there are 5976 Non-Suburban Railway Station, 484 Suburban Railway Stations and 2153 Halts, which makes total number of stations as 8613. This categorization of stations has been done for the period 2017-18 to 2022-23.



General Managers shall have powers to categorize a station as NSG-4 category if it is a place of Tourist importance and/or is an important junction station.

In addition, Ministry of Railways has given GMs full powers to sanction out of turn safety related works without any limit. The following amenities will be provided at all the stations irrespective of their category for safe performance of journey by passengers:

· Foot over bridge

· High level platform

· Trolley path for movement of wheel chair



For improving stations and passenger interfaces: More amenities has been provided to lower category of stations like:

· Waiting halls

· Platform shelters

· Lifts

· Escalators

· Digital charts display

· Illumination

· The train/coach indication board

In view of the new criteria even the small station will get the higher level of amenities which will lead to better passenger satisfaction.


http://pib.nic.in/newsite/PrintRelease.aspx?relid=174916

New rules for categorizing the stations

My view is in NSG3 should have been 50-100 Crore and there should have been another slab of 20-50 Crore

SWR has published.Looking at this revenue figure,I'm shocked to see that under SWR except SBC abd YPR and near by station, all are very small stations.

Even the HQ station UBL is under NSG 3 category.many KL stations have on par or more revenue than this.

The revenue figures of any zone are propped up mainly by its freight revenue. Passenger revenues do not contribute to any significant portion of the railway zone's revenues. All railway tickets claim that the IR earns only 57 paise of every rupee due to it, from passenger revenues. That means even before a journey has started, the railways are already incurring 43% loss. In other words passenger revenues have zero bearing.

As an example, SR is one of the most passenger-oriented zones, but it continues to make losses even then. SWR in all probability has higher freight revenues, but even it makes losses.

The notices at RS say only 57% of cost is recovered in Non-suburban sectors and..
Only 37% is recovered in Suburban sectors.

So the passenger fare situation is actually worse than what is printed on the tickets.

Why then doesn't the Rlys increase the fares? Costs are increasing, so the Subsidy will go on increasing if the fares are not increased.

I agree completely Thomas.

A reasonable increase in fare in all classes, without giving exception even to SL or UR classes should have been carried out every year.

I for one pay Rs. 100 per month for my MST from SBB-NDLS (both route, i.e. via DSJ-DLI, and ANVT-TKJ-CSB), or with 10% discount for quarterly, half-yearly or annual payment, prefer paying 1080/- for the full year which works out to Rs. 90 per month. I have no problem if this Rs. 100 per month is raised even to Rs. 200 per month.

Actually, the problem, Thomas is that in areas like Delhi and some other parts of North India, where number of all train services including passengers is more, the zones are pretty cowardly. This is because there is no accountability as far as proper upkeep of rakes, other maintenance aspects, prioritization of daily commuter trains, punctuality are all given a kick in the ......... you know where!!

Each day my train of 8.48 am for office comes by 9 am which is regarded as almost punctual, yet, when it reaches Yamuna Bridge (my office is at 9.30), invariably NR has even during peak hours, delegated signal prioritization to Nizamuddin which has TKD and Ballabgarh as key freight loading and container stations. So my EMU, which will take barely 40-45 seconds to cross the Yamuna Bridge, is made to wait for nearly 15 minutes at the minimum so that one (or sometimes, even two) freight trains cross the Yamuna bridge as they come from Nizamuddin side (southern direction) whereas my EMU has to go northwards to NDLS via TKJ. As a consequence, my train which would otherwise reach TKJ, maximum by 9.20, manages to reach only by 9.40, by which time I am already 10 mts. late, after which we take Omni cabs, and reach office by 9.50/55.

NR think-tank is very much aware of the fact that either in sectors like Chennai, Mumbai, Kolkata which have major suburban sectors, or indeed now in Hyderabad also either there are separate tracks, like there being quadruple to hextuple lines in Madras or Mumbai-Kalyan sectors, office commuter EMUs have their own priority. But the opposite is true in Delhi area where Shatabdis, Rajdhanis or some SFEs rule the roost, howsoever late they may be.

And because they indulge openly in giving even basic services to daily commuters like me, the zones like NR themselves recommend against increase in fares.

Why?

Because, with rights (to increase fares) comes added responsibility (i.e. to provide better services), but zones like NR are like a monkey which wants to have the cake, and eat it too, without any accountability. Can't go on like this for long, I'm afraid.

Clearly it was classified when its revenue was under 4C, even Trichy should be A1 station, but only A till now, it even missed NSG2 by 9crore revenue.

Sir, 2 doubt..

1. When Will This Stations Change to Correct Grade ? Or We Will Give Some Pressure to SR?

2. Some Stations Shows Less Passenger usage but High Revenue Comparing With Others. any mistake occur in SR data collecting ?


Thanks For Sharing This Details

deepu would be fine.
1. the RTI said it will be reviewed evey 5 years, but they didnt respond on when was the last classification made. They are not doing it properly. The new grades are made now, so it would be another 5 years to reclassify.
2. The data is right, see MDU the passenger is almost same to that of Trichy, but there i s40crore difference, because TPPJ revenue is primarily passenger trains, but MDU has lots of long distance trains with Sleeper/AC class passengers given more revenue with less passenegrs.
