India’s First Unattended Train Operation (UTO) enabled Trains…

Happy to flag off trial run of India’s First Unattended Train Operation (UTO) enabled Trains…
The new trains which will be put on trials today, in Phase 3 of DMRC, line 7 (Majlis Park – Shiv Vihar – 58.59 kms) and line 8 (Janakpuri West – Botanical Garden – 38.23 kms), will have these new Metro trains with extremely high levels of automation, which will have the capability of running without drivers in the future. However, these trains will run with drivers initially.
new type of signalling, called the Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) will permit this type of operation and will enable trains to run at a frequency of 90 seconds.
This is the first time, trial runs of such Metro trains will commence in India and is a significant step in the completion of Delhi Metro’s Phase 3 with the latest technology available internationally.
These trains will have higher average speed than the present trains and will be more energy efficient with state of the art noise reduction features. Many other attractions such as wifi internet, LCD screens with video streaming capacity, USB port facility etc will add a new dimension to the overall travelling experience of the commuters.

Dr Swamy, bomb ticking away in BJP’s basement.

In te resting tweets
I aren’t surprised that Dr Subramaniam Swamy wants RBI governor Raghuram Rajan sacked. That’s just the beginning. His next target will be Finance Minister Arun Jaitley whom he recently called a bug of the Congress in the NDA.
And thereafter…..who knows? He’s a bomb ticking away in BJP’s basement.
Ali Shahanshah Next. Arun Jaitley, Rajnath Singh,Sushma Swaraj &Vasundhra.


Chennai-15 May 16. Coast Guard helicopter CG 801, has recovered bodies of two boys from Marina Beach this morning.
On 14 May 16, at around 1840 hours Coast Guard Maritime Rescue               Co-ordination Centre (MRCC) Chennai received information from Coastal Security Group regarding drowning of two boys off Marina Beach at about 1740 hours. On receipt of the information the CSG boats were deployed immediately along with the beach patrol party from the Police for the search of drowned persons. The Coast Guard launched Search and Rescue operation by first light on 15 May 16. During extensive search operation conducted by Coast Guard helicopter in two sorties which lasted for two hours forty five minutes, the helicopter has recovered two bodies both off Marina beach. The bodies were subsequently handed over to local police for necessary formalities.

It is understood that the two students namely Srinivasan and Sivagurunathan aged 17 and16 years respectively came to the beach for summer excursion and were bathing behind Gandhi statue. Due to the strong tidal current along the Marina beach and steep variant depths the sea swimming is generally not safe. The Indian Coast Guard has been regularly sensitizing the local populace not to venture to sea for beach swimming to avoid drowning incident/loss of life.

“Drought Duty”, an internship to invoke,

Dear N.K,
Almost every country in the MENA region has plans to develop rail transport technology in 2017.
Plans are in place to develop fully integrated networks.  This will enable seamless cross-border freight transport to facilitate trade with European and Asian markets, reflecting the region’s growing global importance to world trade.
A key component to these projects will be the technology supporting the main lines, specifically the signalling and communications infrastructure.  Operators and contractors have and will float tenders for the manufacture and supply of communication solutions and the installation of control systems for inter operable national systems.
You will be able hear from both operators and contractors at Middle East Rail 2017, the region’s largest rail show, looking to incorporate the latest rail solutions into their projects. Download the sponsorship prospectus for more information
