Railway OverBridge

Question

rollmax

Dear sir,

we all Residents unitedly made two WhatsApp groups and started conducting meetings for R.O.B as ours is a area with two railway crossings minimum or even third crossing if we have to go to the Cantonment market.

We met MLA & MP and the group had clearly demonstrated anguish if we don’t get bridge before lokshabha elections.

Railway and elected representatives got the formality done and announced on local TV and in news papers that file is moving and copy of NOC was shared. Now we don’t have any information about file no and status. How we can:

1. track file?

2. Procure copy?

Please guide.

Regards

Pankaj sharma

The sure shot solution is asking your MP to raise the issue in Parliament in question hour.  You will certainly get authentic information.

You need not track the file .  Railwaays budge allocations and announce the projects and budgets well in advance  and release adertisements in all news papers.  Eacj station is having a commitee for commuters and regular meeting.;   Contact any one of them or file RTI Application and seek present status of such Bridges.  (it is very difficult to get 100% railway contribution and if state government is prepared to provide land and 50% expenditure it can materialize in one year.

Ok sir. Thanks for advice. Railway has given conditional NOC to U.P. State government in same they have requested Setu Nigam(bridge corporation) to complete the entire bridge including part of Railways as done in few projects in Uttar Pradesh. Latest update about two months earlier was file is in CM office for fund allocation. However, six months earlier same MLA told CM has principally approved project we need to put up file. Any time because of Central Election is to be announced so code of conduct will be enforced.

I am afraid that is a mere assumption, when the project is not new and files were ready for allocation one year  before and  a mere consent of state is required for already approved project by Railways..  The present focus of railways is to remove  all such level crossings  within 5 years.  It all depends on your MP, if he wants votes, he can do any thing before the election code is announced.

Thank you sir. I appreciate your patience on our case and guidance. Legal advice is so complicated that we educated people feel helpless and illiterate for treading correct path and making our government work for masses. Thanks immensely sir.

Legal Advises are not being offered in this forum, as this forum is dedicated for RTI alone.

Litigation is the last resort and within reach of only well to do for their personal problems, and in larger public interest matters it may not help, and your problem is beyond such Legal path, and only remedy is bringing pressures on elected representatives, and agitatins  during Elections and a commitment in election meeting for raising the issue and getting justice through political interference.  As I have given my opinion, this is not a new issue to be assured as election promise, but the only thing is speeding up the issue.
