The Indian Railways chosen an expensive technology (TPWS) over India’s own patented ACD system

posted Apr 28, 2010, 6:27 AM by Jaganmohan Krishnamoorthy   [ updated Apr 28, 2010, 6:29 AM ]

The Indian Railways recently decided to adopt the European technology Train Protection Warning System (TPWS) on busy rail routes to avoid collisions. However, the government has once again ignored the indigenous & cost-effective anti-collision device (ACD) system developed by the Konkan Railway and has instead opted for an expensive foreign technology.

According to industry experts, TPWS is not only expensive, but also less efficient compared to the ACD system. Rajaram Bojji, inventor of the ACD technology and former managing director, Konkan Railway, has also written to the railway minister on this issue.

In his letter addressed to the minister, he has stated, “You have chosen to approve more expensive systems which do not provide the protection against collisions as widely as ACD can provide. You are ill-advised.”

What is the point of using a so-called certified system, costing 10 times more, but not meeting our requirements? He said that European systems were being promoted, while condemning the successfully proven ACD. The home-grown system is certified by all tests of the Research Design and Standard Organisation (RDSO) and through field implementation—as being able to prevent all dangerous collisions in mid-section, at the station and near the stations.

Commenting on the features of the TPWS, a senior railway ministry official was quoted in a news report as stating, “If the train jumps the red signal, then brakes will be applied automatically under the TPWS system. A majority of the recent accidents took place due to trains jumping red signals in foggy conditions.”

However, Mr Bojji points out the flaws in this expensive imported system. “The entire expenditure on TPWS is to protect the red signal at the stations. But unless the driver observes a lot of discipline, the system fails in protection.” He said the ten times (more) expensive system is being provided only to cover a rail line of one kilometre before a red signal. During the first trials, where ACD was installed on some 15 trains, the cost came to about Rs1,50,000 to Rs2,00,000 per locomotive. The cost went up to Rs5,50,000 during the trial run. At present, the cost would not be more than Rs7,00,000 per locomotive .

The TPWS is estimated to cost Rs70 lakh per km, and will be implemented over an 828-km rail stretch. The total cost for installing the TPWS would be about Rs579.60 crore. On the other hand, the ACD will provide a more efficient and cheaper overall protection against collisions.

ACD, which is a no-signal equipment, has superior wide-area safety-enhancing capability, while costing much less individually. As a network, it delivers extremely superior performance as compared to signal systems. It also has an upgradation cycle in technology terms through progressive software and hardware additions, to eliminate the current old-fashioned Western technology-based signal systems. “This is what the signal department of the Indian Railways fears and thus is trying to fight tooth-and-nail against the introduction of the ACD,” Mr Bojji further stated.

The signal department of the Indian Railways demands a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) certification for ACDs. However, Mr Bojji stated, “ACD, actually not being signal equipment, but only an additional layer, does not need SIL certification, this was confirmed by TUV Germany too in their report for assessing the ACD.”

Track status of RTI appl at RDSO online

posted Apr 23, 2010, 8:53 PM by Jaganmohan Krishnamoorthy   [ updated Apr 23, 2010, 8:59 PM ]

According to a PIB release, in a written reply in the Lok Sabha recently, KH Muniyappa, Minister of State for Railways mentioned that two mobile ticketing vans have been introduced in January 2010 – one each in Delhi and Kolkata on pilot project basis. The revenue earned up to April 15, 2010 since the launch of two pilot projects for Kolkata is Rs 24, 95,409 and for New Delhi – Rs 13, 62,658. 

The Indian Railways has also proposed to introduce mobile ticketing vans for issuing reserved and unreserved tickets in both urban and rural areas. These being pilot projects, the Indian Railways have used departmental vehicles and hired vehicles to serve the locations within the cities for checking telecom connectivity. Actual costs have not yet been worked out. These costs will include cost of hiring of vehicles, the cost of providing connectivity through V-SAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) equipment in mobile vans deployed in rural areas where connectivity through GSM/GPRS (Global System for Mobile Communications/General Packet Radio Service) service provider may not work. This will also include the recurring cost of deployment of staff, payment of allowances, cost of generator, UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) etc. It would become possible to accurately determine these costs only after the scheme becomes fully operational. 

Furthermore, Muniyappa stated that Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has also planned to operate monthly tour packages covering important Buddhist Pilgrimage destinations such as Nagarjuna Konda, Ajanta and Ellora Caves, Sravasti, Sanchi, Kushinagar, Rajgir, Bodhgaya, etc. on demand basis. Presently, two rail tour packages are operated by IRCTC in Orissa covering Buddhist pilgrim destinations, like Dhaulagiri, Khandagiri, Udaygiri, Lalitgiri and Ratnagiri. These packages are offered through regular train service.

The new time table which was supposed to come into effect from July one was postponed to November in view of the late presentation of Railway budget this year.

A Northern Railway spokesperson said the new time table will be available in stalls from November onwards.

The timings of all 14 Duranto class of trains announced in the budget will figure in the time table along with the revisions carried out in passenger booking schemes.
