Railways invited private companies for 'RO-RO' service, know what will be the benefit?

Railway Public Sector DFCCIL has issued a tender for starting 'roll-off, roll-on (RO-RO) service for goods trains between Palanpur in Gujarat and Rewari in Haryana on separate western corridors. Invited to join. Under the Ro-Ro service of the railways, instead of carrying goods in wagons, freight trucks and other vehicles are transported. They are flown to a certain place from where the driver of the vehicle concerned takes them to the destination.

The Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India (DFCCIL) issued a request proposal on 16 February. It states that the winning bidder will have the right to carry trucks loaded with goods on the 714 km route for one year.

One trip will earn 9 lakh rupees

According to the document, it will involve movement of 900 rounds in a separate corridor for goods trains in the western region with 45 trucks loaded with goods. It states that the base value of the contract is Rs 81 crore. It is based on the assessment that each trip will earn 9 lakh rupees.

The reduction in carbon emissions from RO-RO service will reduce congestion of 66,000 diesel-driven trucks that pass through Delhi and its surrounding areas every day on their way to Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh.

Diesel will be saved

Officials said that this arrangement is beneficial for truck operators. Transportation of goods will be safe and fast. Also diesel and man hours will be saved. This will also reduce pollution levels. This service was started by the then Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu in 2017. However, it was not successful due to technical reasons.


Bharat Bandh: know on what issue today 'India trade off' and why the business organizations divided among themselves

Bharat Bandh: know on what issue today 'India trade off' and why the business organizations divided among themselves

On Friday, on the issue of Goods and Services Tax (GST) and e-commerce, business organizations are divided over Friday's 'Bharat Trade Bandh'. The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT), a trade union, has called for a nationwide bandh. CAT claims that eight crore businessmen from more than 40,000 business organizations will be involved in the India trade-off. At the same time, some other trade organizations said that they are not supporting the bandh.

Kat said that the All India Transport Welfare Association representing one crore transporters has supported the bandh. The hawkers' joint action committee, the national organization of hawkers, also supported the shutdown. However, other trade organizations such as the Federation of All India Trade Chambers and the Bharatiya Udyog Vyapar Mandal said that they are not supporting the bandh. CAT general secretary Praveen Khandelwal said that 1,500 big and small organizations from all states will protest against the GST amendment. He said that essential services like drug shops, milk and vegetable shops have been kept out of the bandh.

Trade board is not in favor of bandh for some demands

At the same time, VK Bansal, National General Secretary of Federation of All India Trade Chambers said that in favor of some demands we are not in favor of closing shops. However, we believe that GST has deviated from its original objective during the last 43 months. Rakesh Yadav, general secretary of the Indian Industry Trade Board, Delhi, said that we are not supporting the bandh. He said that his organization has given memorandum to the government on issues related to GST.

Angry among traders due to changed rules

Khandelwal said that on December 22 and thereafter, several unilateral amendments were made in the GST rules, due to which there is great anger among traders across the country. Through these amendments, unlimited powers have been given to the tax authorities, in particular, now any officer can suspend or cancel the GST registration number of any trader for any reason, according to his discretion. Not only this, the tax officer can now seize the bank account and property of any trader and the important thing is that before doing this, no notice will be given to the trader and no chance of hearing will be given. What kind of rule is this? Businessmen have been denied their fundamental rights.

The new rule will increase corruption

He said that such rules will not only increase corruption but officers will be able to harass any businessman. Similarly, traders will also be deprived of taking credit for their money which is deposited with the department as input. Apart from this, there are many other rules in which the businessman is denied fundamental rights. He said whether such laws are justified in democracy? He stressed that we support the government's action against those who are not following the law, but the history of the last 75 years shows that whenever the authorities were given such rights, the oppression of traders across the country Has been done. In this sense, there is a lot of concern and resentment among the traders about these amendments.
