technology that’s had a rocky start After four years of anticipation Facebook’s Oculus business finally shipped its high-fidelity Rift VR headset in March only to encounter massive delays in fulfilling orders And Oculus still hasn’t said when it will ship motion controllers to enable VR experiences that don’t require users to sit down Watch all our tech videos below HTC and Valve meanwhile jointly came out with a more immersive system (with controllers) in April but their Vive system requires users to free up an entire room and hang annoying sensors on walls The goal of Sony’s system isn’t so much to broaden the appeal of VR beyond gamers; after all it comes from the company’s PlayStation gaming business and requires a PlayStation 4 game console to work But Sony delivers where it matters most to hard-core gamers And PlayStation VR which comes out Oct 13 retains the social aspect of gaming in letting friends watch on a television set what the VR user sees in the headset CHEAPER AMONG THE PRICEY BUNCH While VR can be experienced through a cheap headset like the $15 Google Cardboard or Samsung’s $100 Gear VR those systems don’t deliver the same level of graphics and realism as the Rift Vive and now PlayStation For one thing they don’t have sophisticated position tracking to let you move around a room rather than just swivel around in a chair The PlayStation VR’s $400 package comes with the headset cables crappy headphones and a disc filled with demos Another $100 gets you a required camera for motion tracking and a pair of Move motion controllers A PlayStation 4 is necessary and starts at $300 so if you’re starting from scratch you’re spending at least $800 By contrast the other systems require high-end PCs that already cost more than $1000 The general-purpose laptop you may already own won’t be fast enough The Rift itself is another $600 without its Oculus Touch controllers and the Vive costs $800 with controllers There’s nothing as compelling as a “BioShock” or “Dragon Age” game that’s available for traditional game systems (Source: AP) Of course none of this includes games They’re extra CONTENT IS KING Sony boasts that about 50 titles will be available by the end of the year I have tried more than a dozen and have been impressed with the lineup’s depth and diversity There’s nothing as compelling as a “BioShock” or “Dragon Age” game that’s available for traditional game systems But a few exclusive titles offer more than just a glimpse at PlayStation VR’s possibilities “RIGS” is a VR rendition of the multiplayer soccer sensation “Rocket League” The crime caper “The Heist” felt like I was inside a Guy Ritchie movie that I didn’t want to end “Until Dawn: Rush of Blood” is the best haunted house I’ve visited in years – better yet no long lines There’s plenty to keep gamers occupied for months and more are on the way NOT TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT Both the Rift and the Vive are worn like goggles with the straps coming around the sides near the ears The PlayStation’s visor hangs down from a halo-like ring worn around the top of the head The different seems minor at first but the result is more evenly distributed weight and less pressure around the eyes It could also make the headset feel more comfortable with glasses though a colleague still had to deal with lenses fogging up The design also makes it easier to glance at a phone or find a drink Just push a button to slide the visor out without needing to go through the rigmarole of detaching the entire headpiece Still the nausea-inducing issues with the other VR systems are present here too I don’t consider myself prone to motion sickness but I can’t handle more than 30 minutes or so in VR at a time VISION QUEST The Rift and the Vive have better screen resolution while Sony’s system boosts more frames per second for smoother video But don’t get bogged down on specs The differences are negligible And the PlayStation VR preserves the social aspect of gaming What you see inside the headset is replicated on a TV screen so others in the same room can follow along The Rift and the Vive can simulcast on a computer monitor _ not quite the same as a big-screen TV The TV also can be used for multiplayer experiences with the VR user battling players looking at the screen Sony throws in “The Playroom VR” with a couple of fun examples of asymmetrical gameplay Nothing like that is available yet for Rift or Vive REMOTE CONTROLS You can dodge obstacles in a street luge game by moving your head or use an on-screen rendition of standard DualShock 4 controllers in the spatial puzzler “Super Hybercube” The best games though use the wand-like Move motion controllers with light-emitting bulbs positioned above a trigger and other buttons These controllers aren’t as sleek as Vive or Rift remotes but they get the job done of mimicking hands in virtual space The Vive offers the most immersive experience given that it uses two sensors mounted on opposite corners of a room But I was pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of the PlayStation camera I was able to fluidly execute a 180-degree spin as the Dark Knight in “Batman: Arkham VR” The Sony system is also way easier to install You just plug it into the PS4 A NEW REALITY Despite all its strides PlayStation VR won’t be for everyone Besides gawking at the whimsical animated VR movie “Allumette” or streaming Netflix on a virtual screen that looks way bigger than your actual TV there’s little available for non-gaming fans That’s a limitation with the Rift and the Vive too Even most average gamers won’t need the PlayStation VR The available experiences aren’t on par with what gamers have come to expect from countless hours of “Grand Theft Auto” or “Call of Duty” But for anyone who’s been excited about the lofty promises of VR Sony has delivered a worthy wired experience that’s comfortable for both your noggin and your

wicket crying out for some pace before a dead-straight delivery aimed at the batsmenwith breathtaking pace that’s been Malinga’s bread and butter over the course of his career and nobody has been able to do so with such devastating effect until of courseBumrah on Saturday night When the game went into the Super Over most of the spectators and viewers would have been expecting Malinga to bowl at the Gujarat Lions batsmen but the Mumbai think-tank opted to go with Bumrah fully aware of his blossoming skills It wasn’t just in the Super Over that Bumrah was entrusted responsibility he also bowled the last few overs during the Gujarat innings Over the years Mumbai have been using Malinga sparingly at the start to preserve him for the death overs but on Saturday captain Rohit Sharma used the Sri Lankan at the start and in the middle of the innings while banking on Bumrah to do the job at the death The 15th over was the last of his quota of four overs while the Indian pacer bowled the 17th and 19th overs usually reserved for Malinga Bumrah finished with figures of 2/32 in his four overs tad better than Malinga’s figures in the match Earlier in the campaign Mumbai had dropped Malinga from the side a move that was unthinkable a few seasons ago But thanks to Bumrah it’s been made fathomable After this win against Gujarat Bumrah might be Mumbai’s chief bowler for the death overs giving Rohit the option of using Malinga a bit more aggressively upfront as he did on Saturday If Bumrah provided the finishing act it was the efforts of Krunal Pandya that ensured a late collapse didn’t culminate into a disaster for Mumbai Propelled by a wonderful knock from Parthiv Patel Mumbai seemed to be coasting towards a win until Gujarat were able to expose the fragile middle order of the Mumbai Indians Rohit and Kieron Pollard who haven’t been among the runs consistently this season had an outing forget To an extent it was their inability to hold their own after Mumbai lost the in-form Nitish Rana that sucked the momentum out of the Mumbai innings and once again put the lower-middle order under pressure Like always Mumbai managed to produce a hero out of these batsmen and once again it came in the shape of Krunal Be it his 28 off 20 balls against Gujarat on Saturday or his two knocks of 37 each against Bangalore and Hyderabad Krunal has been an excellent finisher for Mumbai sometimes substituted by his brother Hardik Pandya in that role Even in the bowling department Krunal produced excellent figures of 3/14 in his four overs finishing off a job that Harbhajan Singh had so efficiently initiated After the veteran off-spinner had put the brakes on Gujarat early on Krunal broke the back of the Gujarat batting line-up by picking up three crucial wickets His spell made sure the possibility of a big score went out of the window for Gujarat Finishing off his team’s good work both with bat and ball Krunal is a vital cog in the Mumbai set-up He is now performing the role which Pollard performed with great effect in the past few years at Mumbai Indians as the West Indian battles for form and consistency The tall all-rounder accelerated the team’s scoring rate in the end overs while slowing down the opposition with the ball and with the subtle variations he has under his belt Krunal has been filling that void left due to the West Indians’ patchy form in the IPL this season Now Mumbai need not rely heavily on Pollard to up the scoring rate or pull off an impossible chase as young Krunal is certain to have a say in that Mumbai lower-middle order On Saturday the game was decided by the more number of match-winners both experienced and young in the Mumbai side After a explosive start from Gujarat Mumbai pulled back things completely as their pacers especially Malinga took pace off the ball It prompted Rohit to give a bulk of overs to the spinners and the plan worked very well Apart from the vital points on the board this was a game that cemented Bumrah and Krunal’s status as MI’s newgo-to men After several years of success built on that Malinga-Pollard combination Mumbai have grown new teeth that can continue to

proposed new Fifa governance committee will "deal with and advise and assist the council on all Fifa governance matters" a proposed draft to modernize the Fifa statutes stated Members of that governance panel will be elected at the annual Fifa Congress at Mexico City on 12-13 May Fifa said The revised statutes document gives detail to policy proposals agreed by the ExCo on 2-3 December The proposals relied on ideas submitted by Fifa audit panel chairman Domenico Scala and shaped by a reform group chaired by former IOC director Francois Carrard They include imposing term limits of 12 years on future presidents who will have a more ceremonial role and council members Their pay and bonuses should also be published Detail in the draft includes making the promotion of women’s football

Jaitley arrives in Parliament to present the annual budget 2015-16 in New Delhi on Saturday Related News Dissent is the soul of debate Justice Felix Frankfurter of the United States Supreme Court and Justice K Subba Rao of the Supreme Court of India wrote many famous dissenting judgements The most celebrated dissenting judgement in the history of Indian courts was authored by Justice H R Khanna in the case of ADM Jabalpur According to Chief Justice Hughes of the US Supreme Court “a dissent in the court of last resort is an appeal to the brooding spirit of the law to the intelligence of a future day when a later decision may possibly correct the error…” Mr Abhijit Sen can take heart that he may not be alone when he wrote his four-page dissent to the Report of the Fourteenth Finance Commission (FFC) It deserved a more reasoned response than the rather dismissive one-paragraph reply appended by the Chairman and the other members of the FFC Be that as it may let us examine the issue objectively Transfer of funds to States Should the Central government transfer more resources to the State Governments My view is yes a resounding yes Resource transfers fall under four heads They are: 1 States’ share of taxes and duties (mandatory under Article 270 of the Constitution); 2 Non-Plan grants and loans (discretionary based on the discretion of line Ministries and Departments); 3 Central Assistance to States’ Plans (hitherto based on agreement between the Planning Commission and the State concerned); and 4 Central Assistance for Central government schemes (discretionary but governed by principles of burden-sharing) I have long held the view that States’ share of taxes and duties collected by the Centre must be significantly increased I have also long held the view that Central government schemes must be very few and must be fully funded by the Centre If matters had stopped there there would be no dispute The States would have to do with their share of taxes and duties transferred to them and their own resource mobilisation Matters did not stop there The Centre wanted States to implement its Plan; it also wanted States to draw up State Plans States asked for money Gross Budgetary Support (GBS) came into being and the Planning Commission became the arbiter Besides just as the Centre had its non-Plan schemes so did the States have their non-Plan schemes and wanted money for those schemes too Article 275 of the Constitution came in handy Instead of co-operative federalism the Centre and the States began to quarrel over transfer of funds under Article 275 UPA set the ball rolling On January 2 2013 the UPA government constituted the FFC as required under Article 280 of the Constitution One of the terms of reference was to recommend “the principles which should govern the grants-in-aid of the revenues of the States” Further on February 17 2014 while presenting the Interim Budget for 2014-15 I announced that the Centrally Sponsored Schemes (CSS) had been restructured into 66 progammes and funds for the schemes would be released as Central assistance to State plans Consequently Central assistance to State plans rose dramatically from Rs 136254 crore in 2013-14 to Rs 338562 crore in 2014-15 The UPA government had set the ball rolling Mr Jaitley maintained the same numbers when he presented the regular Budget in July 2014 The FFC has kicked the ball further In major shifts from the past it has increased the States’ share of taxes and duties from 32 per cent to 42 per cent It has also recommended only grants for revenue deficit disaster relief and local bodies All other grants have been axed Instead the FFC has recommended a separate institutional arrangement for grants to sectors such as health education drinking water and sanitation The result: more untied funds to the States The expectation: more financial responsibility on the part of the States Sen’s agreement and dissent Mr Abhijit Sen does not disagree with the core recommendations of the FFC His main concern is that major shifts from past practice will “disrupt existing plan transfers with likely very serious effects in the first year of the award period” He has therefore recommended that the States’ share of taxes be kept at 38 per cent in the first year and maintained at that level until there is agreement on the separate institutional arrangement Post agreement he supports States’ share being raised to 42 per cent The Chairman and other members have responded that it is “for the authorities to determine the transition path and make arrangements as are appropriate” The Government characteristically has played safe It has accepted that the States’ share of taxes and duties will be 42 per cent but in respect of grants-in-aid of revenue and Revenue Deficit grant it has accepted the recommendations only “in principle” Government has also promised to put in place an appropriate institutional arrangement All this may seem arcane Not if you believe that Normal Central Assistance (to the Plan) Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana and Backward Region Grant Fund specifically referred to by Mr Sen are important interventions Mr Sen has

did during the days of his whirlwind Punjab tours Just that his targets have changed from the Badals and Captain Amarinder Singh to former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit While the upcoming municipal polls slated for April 23 will have little to do with Dikshit Kejriwal is pitting his two years of governance against Dikshit’s rule in an attempt to draw out his own “achievements” In his fourth rally since Friday when he kicked off his campaign from Burari Kejriwal reached out to a gathering of roughly over 3000 locals and party workers in Swaroop Nagar — part of the Badli Assembly

since February 2015 — power and water tariff subsidies mohalla clinics and free diagnostic tests and medicines qualitative changes in government schools flyovers being built at lower costs He repeatedly tried driving home the point that a ‘corruption-free government can make things possible’ and that unlike his predecessor the Kejriwal government is ‘not short of funds’ Amid hard-selling Delhi government’s work he also put out his two sops for the polls — the promise of house tax waiver and water and power subsidies for tenants Badli Assembly constituency — which has five municipal wards and is a rural seat with a dominant lower middle class and also a sizeable migrant votebase — has backed Kejriwal earlier and the new largesse seemed to strike the right chord as the audience

Asia suggests more countries to have nuclear weapons and praise dictators from Saddam Hussein to Vladimir Putin" he said Panetta said Hillary is determined to defeat those who threaten the United States – be it Al Qaeda Islamic State Boko Haram or al-Shabab "Terrorists who pervert the teachings of Islam to kill innocent people going about their daily lives people travelling through airports in Brussels and Istanbul.These murderers must be stopped" he said He said Clinton is the only candidate who has laid a comprehensive plan to defeat and destroy ISIS and keep America safe "She is smart She is principled She is tough and she is ready Hillary is the single most experienced and prepared person who has ever run for president" Former Maryland Governor Martin O’ Malley said Trump has been a bully his whole life "But here’s what I learned on playgrounds in Catholic school: all bullies are cowards in disguise But unlike that immigrant-bashing carnival barker Donald Trump Hillary Clinton actually knows the enduring symbol of America is not a barbed wire fence It is the Statue of Liberty" he said "Donald Trump doesn’t believe in science He says ‘the concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese’ If the Chinese were really capable of designing some kind of diabolical farce to hurt America they wouldn’t invent global warming They’d invent Donald Trump" he said Malley said: "Donald Trump doesn’t fight for you Instead he insults people who disagree with him He makes his followers fearful of tomorrow He feeds off of a deep-seated and dangerous anger" Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said with Hillary in the White House and a majority in the Senate Democrats will keep fighting for immigration reform that keeps America true clean energy that keeps it strong a Supreme Court that keeps the country just and background checks for gun buyers and an assault-weapons ban that keeps it safe "When Trump decided to run for President he probably said to himself: I’m an egomaniac I don’t believe in science I think women are inferior Where would I feel at home" Reid said In a statement Stephen Miller senior policy advisor to Trump Campaign alleged that Panetta ignored Clinton’s rush towards war in the Middle East and her deadly and calamitous invasion of Libya which further proves her a reckless risk too grave for any American family "It is alarming that Leon Panetta would through his silence excuse Hillary Clinton’s enablement of foreign espionage with her illegal email scheme and her corrupt decision to then destroy those emails and dissemble her ‘private’ server to hide her crimes from the public and authorities He better than most should know how many lives she put at risk" Miller said Paris: World number one Novak Djokovic and nine-time champion Rafael Nadal racked up personal Grand Slam milestones on Thursday as they moved into the French Open third round Top seed Djokovic looking for a Roland Garros title to complete a career Grand Slam claimed his 50th win at the tournament by seeing off Belgian qualifier Steve Darcis 7-5 6-3 6-4 It was the Serb’s third win in three career meetings with Darcis a player nicknamed ‘Shark’ who dumped Nadal out of Wimbledon in 2013 But it was a far from a smooth display from the 11-time major winner and three-time French Open runner-up who committed 42 unforced errors Rafael Nadal in action during the second round match against Facundo Bagnis Getty Images "He plays with a lot of speed is good from the baseline and it was not easy for me to play the points the way I wanted" Djokovic said of 32-year-old Darcis "He has a lot of talent and it was tough I am happy to have won in three sets" Djokovic next takes on Britain’s Slovenian-born Aljaz Bedene who reached the third round of a major for the first time with a 7-6 (7/4) 6-3 4-6 5-7 6-2 win over Spain’s Pablo Carreno Busta Nine-time champion Nadal became just the eighth man to rack up 200 Grand Slam match wins as he saw off Argentina’s world number 99 — and fellow left-hander — Facundo Bagnis 6-3 6-0 6-3 Nadal 29 dropped the first two games against Bagnis but then won 18 of the next 22 to ease into a last-32 clash against either Spanish compatriot Marcel Granollers or Nicolas Mahut of France "The most important thing is a victory in the second round more than the 200 victories" said Nadal who now has a 72-2 win-loss record at Roland Garros and only dropped three games in his opening victory over Sam Groth of Australia Roger Federer missing from the French Open this year tops the all-time list of Grand Slam matches won on 302 Djokovic is sixth on the list with 216 after his win on Thursday Also reaching the third round on Thursday were 2010 semi-finalist Tomas Berdych the seventh seeded Czech who defeated Malek Jaziri of Tunisia 6-1 2-6 6-2 6-4 Latvia’s Ernests Gulbis who beat Federer on his way to the semi-finals in 2014 made the last-32 with a 6-2 7-5 6-3 win over Portugal’s 26th seed Joao Sousa But going out was Australian 20th seed Bernard Tomic beaten 3-6 6-2 7-6 (7/4) 7-6 (8/6) by Croatian 19-year-old Borna Coric Serbian 14th seed Ana Ivanovic the 2008 winner defeated Japan’s Kurumi Nara 7-5 6-1 Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens followed up her first round win over Australian Open champion Angelique Kerber by beating Camila Giorgi of Italy 6-4 6-1 Swiss eighth seed Timea Bacsinszky a semi-finalist last year defeated Canada’s Eugenie Bouchard 6-4 6-4 Pune:MS Dhoni had a phenomenal career as captain and one of the highlights of his leadership tenure was the apt handling of senior players in the team said current India coach Anil Kumble who himself had made way for the wicket-keeper batsman to be Test captain in 2008 Dhoni succeeded Kumble as Test captain after the leg-spin legend announced his retirement midway into home series against Australia in 2008 Kumble recalled the time when Dhoni was made captain in all three formats Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni Getty "The first phase was probably easy for me because I was old it was easy for me to say ‘MS take over’ It was difficult for me to continue at that time the body was not willing but I thought it was the right time for me to leave as well MS (Dhoni) was ready to take over Test captaincy" said Kumble ahead of the first ODI against England here on Sunday Dhoni’s glorious tenure as captain began with the World T20 triumph in 2007 "From there to 2007 to 2017 10 years of captaincy is phenomenal It goes to show the capabilities of MS as a leader and also what he has been able to achieve during the transition phase and also when the seniors left as well it is not easy coming into the team as captain and having so many senior players He managed them really well "He (Dhoni) not just got the best out of them but also got the best for the team Both as number one Test side and later on winning the World Cup and then Champions Trophy and many other victories he has been part of" he said referring to the time when the likes of Sachin Tendulkar Sourav Ganguly VVS Laxman Virender Sehwag and Rahul Dravid played under Dhoni Kumble lauded Dhoni for the timing of stepping down from captaincy "In this team besides Yuvi everybody else has started their careers under MS So that is the kind of transition he has seen It has been phenomenal to be able to achieve what he has been able to achieve We all know the value that he brings as a player and as a batsman and keeper and of course his value on the field "It is never easy to take a call Hats off to him That shows how selfless he is and he probably thought it was the right time for Virat to take over Like how I felt back then it was the right time for MS to come in it is great for the team to have MS on the field with Virat leading the side "Like I mentioned Virat came into the side when MS was captain so the bonhomie and bond that they shared will only help Virat grow as a leader And Virat has shown the exceptional quality he has and what he brings to the team both as an individual and leader We have seen the results under him in Test format and I am sure he will be equally good in one-day format" said Kumble He said Dhoni remains a leader in the team "MS has been one of the best captains that we have had Hats off to him and congratulations to him for what he has done as captain Now looking forward to MS as the batsman and keeper and as a leader He is still a leader in the team" Kumble added Dhoni has made it amply clear that he would like to bat at four and with Yuvraj Singh back in the squad it remains to be seen who the team management picks to bat at 456 "I don’t think it is the right for me to discuss the team combination Like you mentioned it is a good choice that we have in the squad with Yuvi coming back into the team We all know what he is capable of Having said that both Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadhav in that slot have done well It is nice to have choices there is competition in the team and that is what you want All 15 members are available for selection" said Kumble He also acknowledged there is not much room for experimentation with the Champions Trophy in June "At any given point of time you want to field your best team on the park and we would like to do that considering that each game is a knock out in the Champions Trophy That is the mindset players and the team have There is not much experimentation or much practice in terms of combinations and in terms of what you would like to be prepared with but no tournament you can say that this is the ideal preparation that you would want Whatever we have we will try and get the most out of it" He sounded confident when asked whether the team would able to replicate the recent success in Tests in limited overs format "We would like to think that is the the only preparation we have before the Champions Trophy so it is important that we start off a good note "It is good to comeback into the one day mode We have played a lot of Test cricket which is good and we have had great results over the last year and would like to start the new year on a good note "The preparations (of Test and one-dayers)) are not that dissimilar but yes you need to bring in a lot more intensity and energy with the way we practice and what we try and do with certain batsmen and bowlers" He felt dew in the series won’t be a big factor "Yesterday we practised till about 730 There was not much dew The games are starting one hour earlier than what it used to be so when the dew comes into effect it comes in the last one hour But this has been there for a long time That is why it is important that we adapt to whatever conditions are there That is why we prepare our bowlers to bowl with a wet ball" Kumble concluded Beijing: At least 10 people were killed after a flood hit China’s northwestern Shaanxi province local authorities said on Saturday Heavy rains hit Yulin City in northern Shaanxi from Tuesday night and caused floods in a number of areas Floods in China Reuters More than 71300 people were forced to evacuate the provincial flood control headquarters said Power supplies and telecommunications were also disrupted By Saturday the

injuring 60 according to this report On December 28 2016 15 coaches of the 12987 Sealdah-Ajmer Express derailed near Rura 70 km from Kanpur on the Kanpur-Tundla rail stretch Two passengers died and 65 sustained injuries according to this report On November 20 2016 14 coaches of the 19321 Indore-Patna Express derailed near Pukhrayan 60 km from Kanpur in the Jhansi rail division The mishap led to the death of 149 passengers 182 were injured according to this report Each of these derailments over the last four months occurred on over-utilised sections of the Indian Railways These stretches were used to run trains beyond their line capacity according to the following map Source: Indian Railways Lifeline of the nation; Click here for the high-resolution image As much as 40percent of Indian Railways’ 1219 line sections are utilised beyond 100percent according to Indian Railways Lifeline of the Nation a February 2015 white paper Technically a section using more than 90 percent of its capacity is considered saturated The congestion rate is even higher: It is 65 percent on 247 high density line sections of the Indian Railways network "The optimal utilisation should be about 80 percent" said Mukut Mithi member of the Standing Committee on Railways and a Rajya Sabha member Track failures and subsequent derailments are caused by twin factors–excessive traffic and underinvestment in rail infrastructure–an IndiaSpend analysis of available data shows Consider this: There has been a 56 percent increase in the daily tally of passenger trains over 15 years–from 8520 in 2000-01 to 13313 in 2015-16 The number of freight trains increased by 59 percent in the same period But the running track length for all these trains increased by only 12 percent in 15 years–from 81865 kilometres to 92081kilometres If you consider the period from 1950 to 2016 the under-investment in rail infrastructure appears all the more acute Against 23 percent railways’ route kilometre expansion passenger and freight traffic increased 1344 percent and 1642 percent respectively the Standing Committee on Railways concluded in a December 2016 report on Safety and Security in Railways "Fatigue of railway tracks" not explosives is also the reason given by Gopal Gupta director general railways Uttar Pradesh Police to explain the derailment of 14 coaches of the Indore-Patna Express near Kanpur This had contradicted Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s sabotage claim Gangetic plain rail network: The most risk prone Most of India’s high-traffic rail routes lie in the Gangetic plains according to ‘Some insights on the recent spate of accidents in Indian Railways’ a 2012 Physica A journal paper on traffic flow along India’s express train routes Of the 11 major accidents due to derailment or collision in 2010 eight occurred in this region according to the paper Image used for representational purpose only AP The Delhi-Tundla-Kanpur segment has been identified as India’s most risk-prone express train trunk route Of the three recent mishaps cited above one occurred on this segment Rail traffic especially in the Gangetic plains is so excessive that “if all trains were to travel in accordance with their (Indian Railways) schedule then the present infrastructure would not be able to handle the resultant traffic-flow” the paper added Indian Railways authorities manage this situation "by making trains wait at signals" explained the paper This practice results in "frequent delays" and also "increases the possibility of collisions in the event of human errors such as failure of the driver to react to signals" Budget bonanzas add to the congestion every year The congestion on India’s tracks grows every year with the announcement of new trains and no parallel promise of track expansion Every new train—“typically announced during the rail budget in response to demands of the people” said Mithi—accentuates congestion on the Indian Railways network Finance minister Arun Jaitley this year for instance announced new dedicated trains to pilgrimage and tourist centres Stop such practice of introduction of new trains without commensurate inputs to the infrastructure reads the February 2012 report of the Ministry of Railways-appointed High Level Safety Review Committee a committee appointed under the chairmanship of Anil Kakodkar to review the safety of the Indian Railways and recommend improvements But no one heeds this counsel The result is that over the last 15 years passenger kilometres a representation of both the number of passengers and the distance they travelled increased by 150 percent And net tonne kilometres a measure of freight hauled and the distance it has been transported doubled Congestion eats into track maintenance time Congestion reduces the headway—the time-interval between two consecutive trains running on the same route—thus increasing the chances of collisions on very busy stretches This also eats into the time available for maintenance “We found a correlation between the low headway during the busiest time of the day and collision accidents” said Niloy Ganguly co-author of the Physica A paper and a professorin the department of computer science andengineering at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur Take the example of the over busy Delhi-Kanpur segment Between midnight and 7 am the busiest rail traffic hours railway staff got just 13 minutes to check the tracks according to the Physica A paper The rest of the day the headway would increase to an average of 19 minutes It is not as though there has been no technology upgrade in the field of maintenance Indian Railways plies track-recording cars and uses portable oscillation monitoring systems to detect defects in track geometry which includes parameters such as track gauge alignment elevation curvature and surface said Anil Kumar Saxena additional director general public relations Railway Board To test rails and welds Indian Railways uses the ultrasonic flaw detection testing method Since 2016 it has been testing the ultrasonic broken rail detection system used by the South African Railway on tracks maintained by Northern Railway and North Central Railway To reduce weld failures compromising safety–the most likely reason for the 4 May 2014 Diva-Sawantwadi train derailment near Nidi village Maharashtra on the Konkan Railways that killed 22 and injured over 150–Indian Railways has adopted improved welding methods It has also been switching over to long rail panels on 83 percent of the track to minimise the need for welding “Indian Railways has introduced better technology of late which speeds up work” agreed Kulmeet Singh Chhabra director Projects ISC Projects a railways construction and maintenance company with more than 40 years of experience “But what use is even good technology when there is insufficient time to apply it” Maintenance typically happens by re-jigging schedules “To work around time shortages we would close lines to traffic when goods trains were scheduled to pass” recalled Sainath Naidu former commissioner of railway safety Bengaluru and former chief engineer (co-ordination) South Western Railway Indian Railways Why the mishaps: Slow track expansion and renewal and coach upgrades New tracks are vital for reducing traffic bottlenecks Two key projects launched in 2005 are the 1504 kilometres-longwestern dedicated freight corridor (DFC) and the 1318 km-long eastern DFC roughly corresponding to the overworked Mumbai-Delhi and Howrah-Delhi lines where the utilisation varies between 115 percent and 150 percent When commissioned the new freight corridors will absorb 70percent of the existing freight traffic on those routes thus significantly freeing up line capacity They will also boost the speed of freight trains from 25 kmph–where it has stood over the last three decades–to 70 kmph But it is unlikely that the corridors will be finished by 2019 as targeted and here is why: The Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India the special-purpose body created to implement the projects is expecting to fully award the civil and system contracts for the Eastern DFC only by June this year and all but one stretch awarded by the former United Progressive Alliance government are less than 50 percent complete according to this update There is also a lag in addressing “defects in the track or rolling stock” a cause of derailment —the most common type of rail accident–according to the Standing Committee’s December 2016 report In July 2014 around the time Prime Minister Narendra Modi took office 5300 km of track length was due for renewal according to Indian Railways Lifeline of the nation a February 2015 white paper Additionally 4500 km of track length comes up for renewal every year But track renewal targets for the last three years have been roughly half of what is needed–2200 km 2500 km and 2668 km in 2014 2015 and 2016 respectively The first two were achieved This shortfall will result in “disproportionately high maintenance effort” to quote the 2015 white paper and possibly curtailed speeds Source: Indian Railways Lifeline of the nation “Track renewal is an ongoing process stretches are renewed when their age and condition demand it” said the Railways Board’s Saxena “When stretches are not renewed in time due to the scarcity of funds or material speed restrictions are imposed to ensure safe running” Old coaches made by the Integral Coach Factory country’s oldest coach-maker also impose speed restrictions —a top speed of roughly 100 kilometreper hour (kmph) Coaches from Alstom-Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) of Germany on the other hand are designed for speeds upwards of 130 kmph with anti-climbing features to curtail fatalities in the eventuality of an accident So far LHB coaches have been inducted only in premier services such as the Rajdhani Shatabdi and Duronto A policy decision to use only LHB coaches from 2018-19 will ensure other trains get them too But the full replacement of the entire existing fleet will take longer possibly up to 2040 this November 2016 India Today report suggested Level crossing accidents–the second most common type of mishaps as Mithi noted–will continue to pose a risk till they are fully phased out at least on the broad gauge according to a 2016-17 railways budget decision This year 15 percent of the 9340 level crossings have been targeted for elimination It means little that India has fewer accidents per million train km than Germany In this year’s budget following three disastrous rail accidents safety attracted a hefty allocation It went towards the creation of a Rashtriya Rail Sanraksha Kosh (national rail safety fund) with a five-year corpus of Rs 100000 crore The government has conceded that investments in safety have been insufficient but it has also claimed that India’s accidents per million train kilometres a safety index compares favourably with Europe’s In India this index has more or less declined over the last decade reducing from 023 in 2006-07 to 010 in 2015-16 This figure is lower than that of France or Germany (both 017) However this does not mean that Indian Railways is as safe as European railway networks because their trains run at speeds upwards of 250 km per hour said experts “Accidents per million train kilometres depends on the number of trains which is huge in India vis-à-vis developed nations It also depends on speed another measure of infrastructure usage prevailing law and order conditions and temperature variation” said Sukesh Kumar Sharma a Hyderabad-based project management expert formerly with the Indian Railways “A direct comparison between the railway systems of India and developed nations is not possible Our average speed is of 60-70 km per hour–only few Indian trains reach a top speed of 130 kmph that is less than half the 300-kmph top speed of trains in developed nations India’s low index paints a misleadingly rosy picture” Sharma added The author is a freelance writer and editor based in Mount Abu Rajasthan Written by Kriti Sonali
