58 YRS ON, ETAH STA­TION STUCK IN SLOW COACH TO NOWHERE

Etah rail­way sta­tion is caught in a time warp and sym­bol­ises the district’s un­kept tryst with devel­op­ment.
If it were not for the rail­way track, it would be dif­fi­cult to be­lieve that one is at a train sta­tion. Clearly, this is land of by­passed op­por­tu­ni­ties.
In­au­gu­rated by In­dia’s first Pres­i­dent Dr Ra­jen­dra Prasad on Jan­uary 18, 1959, the sta­tion has only one train – link­ing Etah with Tundla –op­er­ated from here.

In­stead of twice, the pas­sen­ger train runs only once a day these days. Lo­cals give credit to the then MP from Etah, late Ro­han Lal Chaturvedi for tak­ing the ini­tia­tive and putting Etah district on the rail map of In­dia. In the 58 years since then, the Etah rail­way sta­tion has re­mained stuck in a slow coach.

The sta­tion re­mains de­serted for most part of the day. It is only the track that makes the place look like a rail­way sta­tion.
Though there is an office of sta­tion su­per­in­ten­dent and sta­tion mas­ter but they, hav­ing very lit­tle to do, visit the office oc­ca­sion­ally. 

 “There was an Etah-Agra train, which be­gan last year but has been stopped be­cause of fog,” . 

I request the authorities to re start this train as this can give a reliable connectivity to the commuters towards Delhi, kolkata and rest of India. It will benefit the students also. 
 
 It will also benefit the local small business personnel. 

Again I request the authorities to look forward to start the train on permanent basis.
