        Ref: Railway Board‟s letter No. 2005/TGIV/39/8 /EOI dated 1.5.2006. (Commercial
             Circular No. 36 of 2006)

              Railways have been advised vide Board‟s letter referred to above for awarding
sole advertisement rights on an entire division. The divisions on which the pilot project was
to be implemented were also identified. However, some railways have expressed inability in
getting response for sole advertising rights for the entire nominated division. Board has re-
examined the issue in the light of response from the zonal railways & the following
changes/modifications have been approved.

   1.      In case there has been no response to sole advertisement rights for the
           nominated division either on inviting tenders or on contracting the advertisers,
           CCM may nominate any other division which has the potential for award of sole
           advertisement rights.

   2.      In case the entire division can not be nominated for award of sole advertisement
           rights, a cluster of stations may be selected for award of sole advertisement
           rights. In case advertisement rights cannot be given for even a cluster of stations.
           station as a whole may be given for sole advertisement rights. For large stations,
           where it has been experienced that it is not possible to give the entire station on
           sole advertisement rights, the station may be divided into convenient zones. The
           size of a zone for this purpose, however, should not be less than one platform.

   3.      The period of contract for piecemeal advertisement rights should be 3 to 5 years
           as per guidelines issued vide policy circular No.24 dated 9.5.2000 on commercial
           publicity.

   4.      In order to avoid delay in finalization of reserve price, the divisions are
           empowered to fix the highest annual earning realized from the zone
           /station/cluster of stations during the preceding 3 years as the reserve price for
           that zone /station/cluster of stations. However, in case it felt that the potential of
           the zone /station/cluster of station is higher, the reserve price can be fixed higher
           than the highest annual earning as mentioned above.
   5.      An escalation clause of 10% every year should be built-in all the agreements for
           contracts other than sole advertisement rights for entire division. In case, the
           Zonal Railways feel that the escalation clause can be kept higher due to the
           potential of the area being given for advertisement, the same may be revised
           upwards.

        Other instructions contained in circular under reference will remain applicable.

        This issues with the concurrence of Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.

        Sub: Super fast surcharge.

       In the past, a number of instruction have been issued on the criteria on declaration of
trains as superfast, amount of superfast surcharge, when it is to be levied, etc. The
instructions issued in the past on the above subject have been compiled and a copy of the
same is given below

    Superfast trains and surcharge:
    1) For declaring Mail/Express trains as superfast trains for the purpose of levy of
supplementary charge( i.e. superfast surcharge), only the average speed of the trains/ train
is taken into consideration. For this purpose, the average speed of the train will be 55 Kmph
or more on Broad Gauge trains and 45 Kmph or more on Metre Gauge trains. The average
speed is calculated by dividing the end to end distance by total journey time. The average
speed criteria need to be satisfied in both up and down directions for a particular pair of
train. Zonal Railways themselves declare the train as superfast when it fulfils the requisite
speed criteria. As an exception, Howrah – Kalka Mail has been categorized as a superfast
train for travel between Delhi and Howrah only.

   2)      i) The rate of superfast surcharge, effective from 20/06/1998 is as under:

                    Class                                Superfast surcharge (Rs)

                                                                                            37
          iv)      The charges for monthly & quarterly superfast surcharge tickets (for
                   season ticket holders), as revised from 15/02/2006 are as under:

          separately for each journey. On tickets involving more than one journey , i.e.
          where break journey is involved and circular journey tickets, superfast surcharge
          will be levied only once ( and not separately for each leg of journey).

A. Instructions

1.      COM of each Railway will immediately notify the Associated weighbridge(s) at which
        rakes loaded at each loading point for each stream are required to be weighed and
        advise the same to all Zonal Railways and Board‟s office. Approval of the COM of the
        concerned Zonal Railway should be taken if the Associated weighbridge lies in other
        Zonal Railway. Weighbridges which have been planned or are being planned, but are
        yet to be installed may also be notified. Weighment of loading done at stations
        served by these weighbridges till these become operational, will be done at an
        alternative weighbridge only if it is operationally not inconvenient as certified by COM
        of the Railway.

2.       COM of each Railway will also notify Alternate Associated Weighbridge where
        weighment will be done if the Associated weighbridge is defective and advise the
        same to all Zonal Railways and Board‟s office. Approval of the COM of the
        concerned Zonal Railway should be taken if the Alternate Associated weighbridge
        lies in other Zonal Railway. Weighbridges which have been planned or are being
        planned, but are yet to be installed may also be notified.




                                                                                             48
3.    A reliable means of communication should be set up between the Associated and
      Alternate Associated weighbridges and the corresponding loading point for
      communicating results of the weighment to the loading point.

4.    Means of communication mentioned above could be a FAX to begin with. Eventually,
      it has to be upgraded to inter-system communication between the weighbridge and
      the TMS module of FOIS. FOIS will provide TMS terminal at every weighbridge
      location. Railway should advise the commissioning of communication system at the
      weighbridge station, immediately after its commissioning.

4.1   However, if FOIS terminal is provided at the weighbridge station but interface
      between weighbridge and TMS is not developed, weighbridge staff should enter the
      weighment of wagons/rakes manually in the TMS module of FOIS provided at
      weighbridge station.

5.    FOIS will develop an interface between the weighbridge and TMS so that the
      weighment information is directly transmitted from weighbridge to the TMS system.

B. Procedure for weighment of wagons/rakes and issue of RR

1.    Loading point will prepare Vehicle Guidance (VG) in duplicate duly indicating the
      wagon No., CC, Tare, Consignor, Consignee etc and will hand over to the guard.
      This will be ensured by Station Supervisor / Goods supervisor of the concerned
      loading point.

2.    The guards of the train will handover one copy of Vehicle Guidance (VG) to
      weighbridge clerk at weighment point. The weighbridge clerk will weigh the wagons
      duly indicating all the records of CC, Tare etc. The result of the weighment should be
      communicated to the loading point.

3.     Weighment information from the Associated weighbridge location will be furnished to
      the loading point immediately. RR should be prepared in terms of Para 1451(c) of
      IRCM, Vol. II. which is being modified and Para 1451(d) of IRCM, Vol. II which is
      being inserted as under:

1451(c)

“ There should be no undue delay in the issue of Railway Receipts to consignors. Railway
Receipts should normally be made over to the consignor within 24 hours from loading of the
consignment. Concerned DCM/Sr. DCM of the loading points may however permit issuance
of Railway Receipt not later than 48 hours from the time of completion of loading of goods to
ensure that Railway Receipt is prepared on actual weighment details. If it is not possible to
make over Railway Receipt within the above period as per actual weighment details,
Railway Receipt should be prepared on the basis of Sender‟ s Weight.”

1451(d)

“ However, in case of continuous Bank Holidays, force majeure conditions etc., DRM may
allow further extension of time for issue of RR up to the next working day of the bank
through a written authority.”


                                                                                          49
An advance correction slip No. 30 to IRCM Vol.II is enclosed for information and necessary
action.

4.    Remaining loading points will progressively switch over to issuing of RR only as per
      actual weighment details as and when their Associated weighbridges get
      commissioned. In case of those weighment points where FOIS terminal is not
      provided or out of order , possibility of feeding of data of weighment of rakes in
      nearby FOIS terminals, preferably on same division, may be explored.

5.    An endorsement will be made in the RR indicating whether it has been prepared on
      the basis of sender‟ s weight or actual weighment.

6.    Punitive charges for overloading, if any, should be realized at the originating point
      itself and it should be mentioned in RR that rake has been weighed and all the
      charges including punitive charges collected. There should be some indication in
      FOIS against this train that it has been weighed. Re-weighment of such
      wagons/rakes at en-route/destination should normally not be done.

7.    Since the information regarding weighment of the rake will be available in FOIS, the
      divisional control will ensure that all those rakes, which have not been weighed
      earlier, are positively weighed. Similarly, the rakes, which have been weighed earlier,
      should be reweighed only under special instructions of an authority not lower than
      DRM or under the instructions from officers of Vigilance department.

8.    There may be cases where despite the weighbridge being functional, it is not
      possible to communicate the actual weighment details due to defective/failed
      communication network. In such cases, the concerned Railway will continue to issue
      RR on sender‟ s weight and take necessary remedial measure.

8.1   CCM of Zonal Railway should monitor the cases of issue of RR on Sender‟ s weight.
      DRMs, CCMs, CMEs and GMs should monitor defective weighbridges and put them
      right at the earliest.

9.    If there are any loading points from which loaded rakes, cannot be weighed at any
      weighbridge, the concerned Railway will advise Railway Board accordingly and
      continue to issue RR on senders‟ weight.

10.   Weighment of rakes/wagons at associate weighbridge/alternate associate
      weighbridge conducted under these instructions shall be treated as weighment at
      forwarding station for all purpose.
11.   The monthly progress report of compliance of these instructions should be sent to
      Board in MCDO.

      These instructions will come into force w.e.f . 01.11.2006.

       This issues with the concurrence of the Traffic Transportation, C&IS and Finance
Directorates in the Ministry of Railways.

      Sub: Freight Incentive Schemes: Long term Special Incentive Scheme (Rate Circular
           No. 98 of 2006)
      Ref: Board‟s letter of even number dated 19/05/2006 (Rate Circular 44 of 2006).
           (Circulated vide LRA (Goods) 74 of 2006 dated 31-5-06)

      Following changes may be made in Board‟s letter No. TCR/1078/2006/4 dated
19/05/2006 (Rate circular No. 44 of 2006).

      I.     After the first para, following may be added.

      Objective: These concessions would be granted if circumstances so warrant with the
      objective of sustaining as well as increasing the rail borne traffic of a customer. The
      Zonal railways should utilize this scheme depending upon the merit of the case with
      the sole objective of getting substantial traffic and resultant additional earnings vis –



                                                                                            60
vis concessions offered. Flexibility has been built to enable framing suitable
marketing strategies under widely varying circumstances.

II.   Existing conditions mentioned in Rates circular 44 (under the “Condition”
      clause on page 2) shall be deleted and following conditions shall be added.

      (a) Concession under this scheme can be given for a period up to three years
          and, therefore, can also be given for a minimum period of one year

             In cases where concession has been granted for more than one year
             based on the commitment of the net freight earning and the
            corresponding concession in each year, the scheme shall be operated for
            each year        separately independent of the performance in
            proceeding/following year.

             The earning performance should be measured against the targets fixed
             for the concerned year at the time of initial notification of concession. The
             commitment of net freight earning in each year is required to be equal to
             or higher than the corresponding commitment in the previous year.

             To illustrate, a customer commits to give net freight earning of Rs.70/-
             Crore in first year. In the subsequent years, the commitment of net freight
             earning can not be less than Rs.70/- crore. Now, say, the target for 1st
             year and 2nd year been fixed at Rs.70/- crore and Rs.75/- crore
             respectively. If the customer gives net freight earning of Rs.90/- crore in
             the 1st year, the target of 2nd year will continue to remain at Rs.75 crore.
             However, if the customer does not give net freight earning of Rs.70 crore
             in the 1st year he will not get concession in the 1 st year. But he will
             earning to be eligible for availing concession in 2nd year as per the target
             for the 2nd year.

      (b)    Eligibility in terms of freight earnings of Rs.50 crore in any year (12
             months period) of contractual period will be decided based on the total
             net freight committed by a customer and will exclude all sorts of
             concession discount. For Example, if the gross freight committed by a
             customer is Rs.53 crore for a particular year (12 months period), the
             concession mentioned in clause (i) of Benefit shall be granted in such a
             manner that concessions/rebate etc is not less than Rs.50 crore in that
             year of the contractual period.

             In case, the net freight earning committed by customer in any year of
             contractual period is less than Rs.50 crore, concession can be given only
             under clause (ii) of benefit mentioned in the scheme.

      (c ) Total committed earnings of a specific customer from one or more
           terminals in the same zone may be taken into account to determine
           whether he fulfills the criterion of net freight earnings of Rs.50 crore.

      (d)    Net freight earning from only outward traffic of all commodities shall be
             reckoned for determining earning as well as for the purpose of grant of


                                                                                       61
     any freight concession. Inward traffic shall not be considered for the
     above purpose.

(e) Freight concession can be given either on incremental or entire traffic
    offered by customer depending on the situation, with the purpose of
    maximizing net earnings and increasing rail co-efficient. Such concessions
    can be given either at a suitable uniform rate for the entire period or at
    graded (differential) rates. The graded rates could be on the basis of
    quantum of traffic, Periods of the contract or any other parameter
    considered suitable singly or in combination. However, concession on
    entire volume of traffic should be given only in exceptional circumstances
    where such incentives are considered justified.

(f) If the tariff rate changes after the finalization of the concession and issue of
    notification, the freight earnings target shall be modified as under:
         (i)     If the tariff rate decreases, there will be no change in freight
                 earning targets.
         (ii)    If the tariff rate increase, the freight earning target shall be
                 revised using following formula.


            Original Freight Earning Target X Revised Tariff Rate
            -----------------------------------------------------------------------
                              Original Tariff Rate
      This condition should be suitably incorporated in the notification/
agreement.

(g) A customer can avail of incentives under more than one Scheme (Long
    Term special Incentive Scheme, Incentive Scheme for incremental traffic,
    Loyalty Scheme and Traditional Empty Flow Direction Scheme or any
    other such scheme). However, conditions for each scheme will have to be
    separately fulfilled. For instance, a customer offering a commitment of total
    net freight earning of Rs. 70 Crores (exclusive of all freight concessions)
    may choose to offer traffic equivalent to net earning of Rs. 50 Crore to be
    considered under Long Term Special Incentive Scheme and the remaining
    traffic under Incentive Scheme for Incremental Traffic. In order to be
    eligible for consideration for concessions under clause (i) of Benefit as
    mentioned in this scheme, the customer will have to offer a commitment of
    net freight earning of at least Rs 50 Crore in twelve month period
    exclusively for this scheme. In no case, the same volume of originating
    traffic will avail concessions under more than one scheme unless and until
    such concurrent benefit has been permitted specifically vide parta on
    concurrency indicated earlier.

(h) In case of rebate, refund will be calculated & granted after end of every
    12months of the contractual period.

(i) These concessions would be subject to the condition that the discounted
    /rebated freight rates would not be lower than Class LR1 in Lean Season
    and Class 100 in the Busy season.


                                                                                 62
                (j) For the purpose of reckoning fulfillment of target under this scheme loading
                    and freight earning will deemed to have been accrued if the empties
                    (wagons) have been placed against indents for free destinations before
                    the completion of the contractual period, subject to the condition that such
                    wagons are actually loaded without any forfeiture or cancellation.


       III      Existing formulation mentioned in Rates Circular 44 (under the “Benefit “
                clause on page 2 ) shall be replaced with the followings.

             Freight concession in accordance with following scales can be granted to
       customers subject to fulfillment of customers commitment regarding freight.

       (i)      For customer who commits to give net freight earning of more than Rs 50
                Crore in each year ( 12 months period ) of the contractual period.
                Discount /rebate in freight rates may be granted up to 10 % in the Busy
                Season and up to 20% in Lean Season for duration upto 3 years.
       (ii)     All other customers including new customers

      Discount /rebate in freight rates may be granted up to 5% in the Busy Season and
upto 10% in Lean Season for durations upto 3 years.

       These instructions will come into force w.e.f 21.11.2006

                   (i)    For customer who commits to gives net freight earning of more
                          than Rs 50 Crore in each year (12 months period) of the
                          contractual period.

                          Discount /rebate in freight rates may be granted upto 10% in the
                          Busy Season and upto 20% in Lean Season for durations up to

                          Discount /rebate in freight rates may be granted upto 5% in the
                          Busy Season and upto 10% in Lean Season for durations up to
                          3 years.

                   Conditions:
                         (a)   Concession under this scheme can be given for a period
                               up to three years and therefore can also be given for a
                               minimum period of one year.

                          In cases where concession has been granted for more than one
                          year based on the commitment of the net freight earning and the
                          corresponding concession in each year, the scheme shall be
                          operated for each year separately independent of the
                          performance in preceding /following year.

                          The earning performance should be measured against the
                          targets fixed for the concerned year at the time of initial
                          notification of concession. The commitment of net freight earning
                          in each year is required to be equal to or higher than the
                          corresponding commitment in the previous year.



                                                                                         64
To illustrate, a customer commits to give net freight earning of
Rs. 70 crore in first year. In the subsequent years, the
commitment of net freight earning can not be less than Rs. 70
crore. Now say, the target for 1st year and 2nd year has been
fixed at Rs. 70 crore and Rs. 75 crore respectively. If the
customer gives net freight earning of Rs 90 crore in the 1st
year, the target of 2nd year will continue to remain at Rs 75 crore.
However if the customer does not give net freight earning of Rs.
70 crore in the 1st year, he will not get concession in the 1st year.
But he will continue to be eligible for availing concession in 2 nd
year as per the target for the 2nd year.
(b)    Eligibility in terms of Freight earnings of Rs. 50 Crore in
       any year (12 months period) of contractual period will be
       decided based on the total net Freight committed by a
       customer        and   will       exclude    all    sorts    of
       concessions/discount. For Example, if the gross freight
       committed by a customer is Rs 53 Crore for a particular
       year (12 months period) the concession mentioned in
       clasue (i) of Benefit shall be granted in such a manner
       that the net freight earning from the customer after
       deducting concessions /rebate etc is not less than Rs. 50
       Crore in that year of the contractual period.

       In case, the net freight earning committed by customer in
       any year of contractual period is less than Rs. 50 Crore,
       concession can be given only under clause (ii) of the
       Benefit mentioned in the scheme.

(c)    Total committed earnings of a specific cust6omer from
       one or more terminals in the same zone may be taken
       into account to determine whether he fulfills the criterion
       of net freight earnings of Rs. 50 Crore.

(d)    Net freight earning from only outward traffic of all
       commodities shall be reckoned for determining earning as
       well as for the purpose of grant of any freight concession.
       Inward traffic shall not be considered for the above
       purpose.

(e)    Freight concession can be given either on incremental or
       entire traffic offered by customer depending on the
       situation with the purpose of maximizing net earnings and
       increasing rail co-efficient. Such concessions can be
       given either at a suitable uniform rate for the entire period
       or At graded (differential ) rates. The graded rates could
       be on the basis of quantum of traffic periods of the
       contract or any other parameter considered suitable
       singly or in combination. However, concession on entire
       volume of traffic should be given only in exceptional



                                                                  65
                              circumstances where such incentives are considered
                              justified.

                             (f) If the tariff rate changes after the finalization of the
                                 concession and issue of notification, the freight earnings
                                 target shall be modified as under:

                             i) If the tariff rate decreases, there will be no change in freight
                               earning targets.

                             ii) If the tariff rate increases, the freight earning target shall be
                                revised using following formula.

                      Original Freight Earning Target X Revised Tariff Rate
                                     Original Tariff Rate

This condition should be suitably incorporated in the notification/ agreement.

                             (g) A customer can avail of incentives under more than one
                                 Scheme (Long Term Special Incentive Scheme, Incentive
                                 Scheme for Incremental traffic, Loyalty Scheme and
                                 Traditional Empty Flow Direction Scheme or any other such
                                 scheme). However, conditions for each scheme will have to
                                 be separately fulfilled. For instance, a customer offering a
                                 commitment of total net freight earning of Rs 70 Crores
                                 (exclusive of all freight concessions) may choose to offer
                                 traffic equivalent to net earning of Rs 50 Crore to be
                                 considered under Long Term Special Incentive Scheme and
                                 the remaining traffic under Incentive Scheme for
                                 Incremental Traffic. In order to be eligible for consideration
                                 for concessions under clause (i) of Benefit as mentioned in
                                 this scheme, the customer will have to offer a commitment
                                 of net freight earning of at least Rs 50 Crore in twelve
                                 month period exclusively for this scheme. In no case, the
                                 same volume of originating traffic will avail concessions
                                 under more than one scheme unless and until such
                                 concurrent benefit has been permitted specifically vide para
                                 on concurrency indicated earlier.

                             (h) In case of rebate, refund will be calculated & granted after
                                 end of every 12 months of the contractual period.

                             (i) These concessions would be subject to the condition that the
                                  discounted/rebated freight rates would not be lower than
                                  Class LR1 in Lean Season and Class 100 in the Busy
                                  Season.

                             (j) For the purpose of reckoning fulfillment of target under this
                                  scheme, loading and freight earning will deemed to have
                                  been accrued if the empties (wagons) have been placed


                                                                                               66

            No. 74 of 2005) and No.TC-I/95/201/2 dt.23.11.1995.

      FOIS has sought certain clarification regarding reckoning of free time in Goods
Sheds etc.

2.0 The matter has been examined and it has been decided:-

       ” to do away with the instructions prescribed vide Paras 2.2.2 & 2.2.3 of Rates
Circular No.74 of 2005 and Board‟s letter No.TC-I/95/201/2 dt.23.11.1995, and

      “ to incorporate new Paras 2.2.2 & 2.2.3 in Rates Circular No.74 of 2005 as
mentioned below:

“2.2.2 Reckoning of free time in goods sheds, Railway sidings and such private /assisted
sidings where placement/release of rake is done through Railway‟s loco

(a) If a rake is placed in one spur in one placement:

      Free time will be reckoned from the time of placement of the rake. Demurrage will be
charged on excess detention which will be calculated as under:

„Excess detention = (time of release – time of placement) - free time‟
                                                      (refer Illustration No.1 at Annexure)

(b) If a rake is placed in one spur in multiple placements:

       The free time will start with the placement of 1st part of the rake. However,
intervening periods between the time of completion of loading/unloading of the 1st part and


                                                                                              74
time of placement of 2nd part of the same rake for loading/unloading, between the time of
completion of loading/unloading of the 2nd part and time of placement of 3 rd part of the
same rake for loading/unloading and so on, should be treated as dies-non.

       Demurrage will be charged on excess detention which will be calculated as under:

„Excess detention = (time of release of the last part – time of placement of first part) – free
time – total period of dies non‟
                                                (refer Illustration No.2 at Annexure)

(c) If a rake is placed in more than one spurs:

        Free time for the entire rake will commence from the time of placement of first
part of the rake.

       Demurrage charges will be calculated on the basis of deemed released time of the
rake (after adjustment of dies non period). A rake will be deemed to have been released at
the time at which the last wagon is released irrespective of the group/spur in which this
wagon was placed.

       If the time interval between first placement and subsequent placements (i.e. between
1st placement & 2nd placement, between 1st placement & 3rd placement, and so on) is
more than two hours, then such excess time interval of over two hours shall be treated as
dies non. This dies non period, wherever applicable, will be deducted from the actual
release time of the respective placements to arrive at deemed release time.

       Demurrage will be charged on excess detention which will be calculated as under:

„Excess detention = (deemed release time of the rake – time of 1st placement) – free time‟

       Deemed release time of a placement will be calculated as under:

„Deemed release time of a placement = actual release time of that placement – dies non, if
applicable‟

      Deemed released time of the rake will be the time at which the last wagon of the rake
has been deemed to be released. For example, if the deemed released time of first
placement is 1200 Hours, second placement is 1400 Hours and third placement is 1300
Hours, then 1400 Hours will be the deemed release time of that rake.
                                                     (refer Illustration No.3 at Annexure)

2.2.3 Demurrage rule in case of private/assisted sidings where placement/release of a
rake from/to interchange point is done through siding owner‟s loco.

      In addition to permissible free time for loading/unloading of wagons, Bunching
Allowance of 3(three) hours will be permissible as per following conditions:

        Bunching allowance will be allowed for both loading as well as unloading stream of
traffic (commodity wise). It will be granted to such rakes which have arrived in bunched
manner in excess of the handling capacity of the siding. It will be permitted for calendar day


                                                                                            75
only and will not have cumulative effect i.e. not extendable beyond odd hours. The
allowance should be calculated on actual arrival basis.
                                               (refer Illustration No.4 at Annexure)

        Handling capacity of a siding will be fixed as under:

“Existing siding: Handling capacity of an existing siding will be the actual handling capacity
or deemed handling capacity, whichever is higher. Deemed handling capacity is the
average consumption of rakes per day during 1st January to 30 th April escalated by 1.5
times & rounded off to the next integer.
 (refer IllustrationNo.5 at Annexure)

“New siding: Handling capacity will be fixed provisionally keeping in view the handling
system, production capacity, linkage, deemed handling capacity of similar type of siding etc.

“                                                                        in the Month of May
& will be notified for the next year starting from July to June, or at the time of change in
infrastructure including handling system, consumption pattern or linkage of the siding,
whichever is earlier.

“                               .1.2007 to 30.6.2007, handling capacity of sidings should be
fixed before 1.1.2007 keeping in view the actual handling capacity and the deemed handling
capacity. Deemed handling capacity will be computed on the basis of average consumption
per day during 1.1.2006 - 30.4.2006.

       Demurrage on a rake will be charged after allowing the permissible free time for
loading/ unloading of wagons and bunching allowance, wherever applicable. Grant of free
time and levy of demurrage on a rake will be linked with the handling capacity of the siding ”

(i) Say, handling capacity of a siding “A” is to be fixed in July 2007. Actual handling capacity of
the siding is one rake per day.

Consumption details of the siding “A” reveals that 100 rakes (say) were consumed during
1.1.2007 – 30.4.2007. Then the deemed handling capacity of the siding will be 2 rakes per day
as computed below:


 Total number of rakes consumed during                (i.e 100/120)         =0.83
 1.1.2007-30.4.2007/120 days
 0.83 multiplied by 1.5                               (i.e. 0.83*1.5)       = 1.3
 1.3 rounded off to the next integer                                        =2
 Deemed handling capacity of the siding “A”                                 =2

Handling capacity of the siding “A” will be fixed as two rakes per day.

(ii) In case handling capacity of other siding “B” is to be fixed in July 2008. Actual handling
capacity of the siding is 5 rakes per day.

    Consumption details of siding “B” reveals that 250 rakes (say) were consumed during
1.1.2008 – 30.4.2008. Then the deemed handling capacity of the siding will be 4 rakes per day
as computed below:

Total number of rakes consumed during
1.1.2008 – 30.4.2008/121 days                         (i.e. 250/121)        = 2.07
2.07 multiplied by 1.5                                (i.e. 2.07*1.5)       = 3.11
3.11 rounded off to the next integer                                        =4
Deemed handling capacity of the siding “B”                                  =4

Handling capacity of the siding “B” will be fixed as five rakes per day.

       Sub: Operation of wagon Investment scheme (WIS).

        Some of the railways have been finding it difficult to handle fresh/pending
applications under wagon Investment Scheme (WIS), especially for iron ore traffic, due to
apprehensions about ability to handle committed traffic. Wagon Investment Scheme has an
inbuilt incentive for the customer to stay with the railways and investment under it should be
most welcome. However, if it becomes inescapable to make a choice then following
guidelines should be followed:

       i)     Domestic traffic, which necessarily includes CBT customers, to get preference
              over export traffic.




                                                                                                  79
       ii)    Within domestic traffic, CBT customers to get preference over non-CBT
              customers.

       iii)   At the same station if loading / unloading (in that order) is from a siding, it will
              get preference over another person handling from general goods-shed line.

       Period of permission for procuring the rake(s) be explicitly stated as only one year. It
should automatically expire after one year, unless specific prior extension is given based on
proof of financial commitment for purchase of rake.

       This issues with approval of Traffic Transportation directorate of Railway Board.

        Please refer to Board‟s letter No. 2002/CE-1/SP/1 of date 12/07/2005 vide which
revised standard form of Agreement for Private Sidings was issued. As per clause No. 9 of
the above said agreement, the applicant (private siding holders) shall provide and maintain
at their own cost and expertise a suitable electronic weighbridge.

       Central Railway have stated that there are number of sidings established since long
and they are not having any weighbridge. However, no cases related with overloading has
been detected so far, for the commodities loaded from these sidings and suggested that the
provision of weighbridge should be applicable for the new siding and not for existing sidings.

       The matter has been examined. Board have decided that clause 9 of above said
agreement for installation of suitable electronic weighbridge should be mandatory for new
private sidings and in case of old sidings installation of weighbridge may not be mandatory.
However, efforts should be made to install a suitable weighbridge in case of old sidings.

      Sub:- Stations /Sidings serving Ports, on S.E Railway for booking of traffic in Iron
            Ore.

        Vide Board‟s Rates Circular No. 69 of 2005 (notified over S.E Rly under Rates
circular SL No. -218 (G) /2005 ), classification of Iron Ore booked to ports was revised from
class -160 to class-180. Subsequently a corrigendum to this was issued by Board which
was notified over S.E Railway vide Spl. Rates Circular SL No. -229(G)/2005 that revised
classification 180 of “Iron Ore booked to Ports” will be applicable for “Iron Ore booked to
stations /sidings serving Ports.

       It was also clarified by Board vide letter No. TCR/1078/2005/5 dt.09.12.2005 (notified
vide S.E Rly‟s Rates Circular SL No. -236(G)/2005) that rebooking of Iron Ore from stations
to Port will not be permissible.

      Now, as advised by Board vide letter No. TCR/1078/2005/5 dt 17.05.2006, Zonal
Railways are required to jointly notify stations /sidings on their Railway which primarily
deals with inward traffic of Iron Ore meant for Ports.

       It has already been notified vide S.E Railway‟s Spl Rates Circular SL No.127
(G)/2006 that with effect from 20.07.2006 all incoming rakes of coal for TNEB and inward
rakes of iron ore meant for Haldia Dock Complex should be booked and charged to HDCB
only.
       It is therefore, clarified that Iron Ore traffic charged at class 180, at present, and
meant for Haldia Dock should be booked to HDCB only which is the point serving the
Haldia Port for this purpose.
