Mohan | Published: February 25 2015 12:00 am The total span of the rail network is only one measure of India’s slowdown relative to China Related News As the NDA presents the rail budget this week it is worth reflecting on the growing gap between the Indian railway system and that of its Asian peer China Thanks to the British Raj India had a head start over China in the 19th century The British built the first experimental rail line in the subcontinent near Chennai in 1836 In China it was a British company Jardine Matheson and Company which laid the first tracks in Shanghai in 1876 The line connected British and American territorial settlements with the Wusong docks on the Huangpu River But the local governor of Shanghai quickly dismantled it accusing the British of building the line without the permission of the emperor in Beijing By the turn of the 20th century the subcontinent had nearly 15000 km of railway track in comparison to just 600 km in China After Partition and Independence in 1947 India’s rail network was nearly 54000 km China in contrast had about 27000 km of which barely 8000 km was usable because of the civil war Since Independence China has nearly quadrupled its rail network to about 110000 km India has added barely 11000 km of track The total span of the rail network is only one measure of India’s slowdown relative to China Once the leader in the development of railways in the non-Western world India is no longer at the cutting edge As far back as the late 19th century the Indian Railways was laying tracks in distant lands of Africa and surveying potential rail routes to China through Burma New Delhi now desperately needs foreign collaboration to come up to speed with the rest of the world thanks to misguided policies of self-reliance and massive mismanagement over the last many decades The Chinese railways in the reform era unveiled by Deng Xiaoping in the late 1970s eagerly sought foreign collaboration absorbed the technology mastered it and has now begun to export it Consider the development of high-speed railways in China If Delhi turned its back on emerging technologies two decades ago Beijing is now the leader China launched its first high-speed rail line in 2003 A decade later its high-speed network spans more than 12000 km China wants to expand its rapid rail network to about 25000 km and connect all cities with a population of 500000 Strategic Clarity Both Chinese nationalists and the communists understood the importance of railways in unifying the nation integrating domestic markets promoting economic development securing far-flung frontiers and promoting Chinese influence abroad These were in fact the very motives that drove the Raj to build an expansive rail network on the subcontinent that stretched from Tinsukia in the east to Quetta in the West and from Peshawar in the north to Dhanushkodi in the South If the British Raj understood the strategic significance of the railways the rulers of independent India squandered the inherited advantage and have wrecked the system rather than build on it In China the first president of the first republic Sun Yat Sen dreamt of connecting the entire country through a massive rail network That dream has been realised in full measure by his communist successors Impudent Vision The Chinese Communist Party leadership has also built on Sun’s plans to extend the Chinese railways to far-flung corners of the Eurasian landmass The breathtaking scope of China’s vision can be gauged by the plans to build a railway line from Northeast China to the United States through Russia and China They want to connect China to California through Siberia If and when it is built the 13000 km railway line will be the longest in the world The boldest part of the plan is to build a 200 km underwater tunnel in the Bering Strait which connects Asia to North America To cap it all Chinese companies say they will fully fund and construct the link From Alaska to Argentina and from Africa to Australia railway diplomacy has become one of the central themes of China’s international engagement Armed with technology and massive financial resources Chinese companies are competing with each other to win railway contracts around the world In Delhi the Modi government has said all the right things about the long-overdue modernisation of the Indian Railways It has pressed the railways to look at high-speed corridors The PM has demanded early implementation of the long-pending projects on connecting India’s border regions with railways The NDA government has also reached out to China and Japan for collaboration on railways including on high-speed trains and heavy haulage But turning the talk into reality was never going to be easy The budget this week will show if the government’s political will is strong enough to prevail over the entrenched conservatism of the Indian Railways establishment The writer is

meeting under the chairmanship of Rajnath Singh (Express Photo by Kamleshwar Singh) Top News Punjab and Haryana were locked into arguments over the Sutlej-Yamuna Link (SYL) canal issue and sharing of river waters in the 28th Northern Zonal Council meeting held here on Friday even as Punjab claimed Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh had asked two states to develop a consensus to resolve the contentious issue through “dialogue” Rajnath as per a press release by Punjab government however said if dialogues failed to yield results the matter should be left to the courts to decide Punjab Finance Minister Manpreet Badal it was learnt mooted the idea to settle the issues relating to river sharing “out-of-court” Haryana was represented in the meeting by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar After Haryana claimed to have an “edge” in the legal battle involving SYL canal Manpreet Badal was learnt to have said “Punjabis do not mind sacrificing their life if you ask with love but do not show us the rulebook” When contacted later Badal said “After reorganisation everything was divided in the ratio of 60 and 40 between Punjab and Haryana Either same rule should follow in sharing of waters and Haryana should also give 60 percent of water from Yamuna which they are reluctant to or internationally accepted riparian principles should be adhered to Already 75 per cent of the water belonging to Punjab is flowing out to other states” SYL issue was one of the agenda items among the river water sharing issues taken up during the meeting attended by representatives of Punjab Haryana Himachal Pradesh Jammu and Kashmir and Rajasthan While Punjab is against the SYL canal saying it was already water-deficient Haryana wants the canal to become operational so that it could get share of Ravi-Beas river waters for Haryana “Punjab and Haryana on Friday agreed to try and find a collective solution to the dispute through dialogue” said a statement issued by the Punjab government which hosted the meeting Addressing a joint press conference with Inter-State Council Secretary in Union home ministry Sanjeevani Kutty Punjab chief secretary Karan Avtar Singh said that during the meeting Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh sought to get the availability of waters in the Ravi and Beas rivers assessed afresh while pointing out that there was changes in the climate in the Monsoon pattern and subsequently in the flow of the rivers Chief Secretary said the Haryana CM was receptive to the suggestion Kutty said a number of issues were resolved during the meeting while some issues relating to river water sharing power-sharing between states and water contamination in rivers needed more discussions She said Union Ministry of Water Resources and Ministry of Power would hold meetings with states concerned on such issues Later a Haryana government statement quoted the CM as saying in the meeting “The state government is willing to work towards an amicable settlement of every issue but we must always honour agreements arrived at in the past Since our faith in the Constitution of India is full and unflinching we would never hesitate in taking legal recourse in our determination to safeguard our interests and to protect the rights of the residents of the State” “Haryana is a water stressed state as against the demand of 360 MAF water the availability of water is only 147 MAF We have to give out of our own share in the Yamuna waters extra water to Delhi in compliance of the apex court’s orders even as Punjab is not delivering Haryana’s full share of the Ravi-Beas water” he said Khattar also urged the Union Government to expedite the construction of Renuka Kishau and Lakhwar-Vyasi dams on river Yamuna “The supplies in river Yamuna have been dwindling over the recent years and there being no dam on it precious water goes waste during the monsoon season” he said Another issue which was debated was setting up 27 mini hydel power projects by Punjab on Bhakra main line (BML) with generation capacity of 6375 megawatts Punjab had approached Ministry of New and Renewable Energy for funding the hydel power projects on BML by “non-consumptive use” of water within its territory The ministry asked Punjab to get no-objection certificate from Bhakra Beas Management Board which refused the same in 2015 saying work could not be done without concurrence of partner states as 1950 agreement Haryana contended that cost of hydel project should be shared in the ratio of sharing costs of assets of Bhakra Nangal Project and electricity should be distributed accordingly Rajasthan said cost of construction and power generated should be shared by Rajasthan Punjab and Haryana like other Bhakra Nangal Power House projects Himachal said it should get 719 per cent power in all BBMB projects as per population ratio and the state should get an additional 12 per cent free power plus 1 per cent share as per National Hydro Power Policy besides its usual share Punjab however contended that mini hydel power plant passed through Punjab and maintained by the state and there was no question of power sharing unless the projects were joint ventures “The power to be generated is miniscule What share out of that Punjab can give to other states” Badal said In absence of a consensus on the issue between the states there is generation loss of 635 MW of power costing Rs 50 paise per unit only In the meeting Punjab also demanded land from Airport Authority of India for setting up perishable cargo centre at International Airport Chandigarh But it was told the facility was not feasible due to less number of international flights Similar facility set up at Amritsar is unutilised due to discontinuation of international flights from Amritsar International
