AJMER DIVISION'S DEPARTMENTS

 

 

Introduction:

Ajmer Division came into existence in 1956 primarily on MG system. The conversion of Meter Gauge into BG from Madar to Ajmer was completed in 1995 and the first train to run was Delhi-Jaipur Shatabdi Express, which was later extended from Jaipur to Ajmer. Subsequently, Meter Gauge between Ajmer and Ahmedabad was also converted into Broad Gauge and commissioned on 3rd May, 1997.

With a glorious past and historical backdrop, the construction of Rajputana-Malwa Railway was started in 1870. Delhi-Rewari line was constructed in 1872 and Rewari-Ajmer (Madar-Ajmer) in 1875 and finally Ajmer-Ahmedabad in 1881. The headquarters of Rajputana-Malwa Railway was established in Ajmer in 1881 and the headquarter building, from which the present DRM office is run was commissioned in 1884.

In 1889, the management of Rajputana-Malwa Railways got transferred to Bombay, Baroda & Central India Railway. The section from Udaipur to Chittaurgarh was constructed by Mewar State Railways in 1896, which was finally merged with BB&CI in 1920. The section from Marwar Jn to Mavli was constructed by the Maharaja of Jodhpur in 1942-44.

Spread over the States of Rajasthan and Gujarat, Ajmer Division extends from Madar to Palanpur (excluding) via Ajmer on BG main line. Madar-Ajmer-Palanpur (excluding) section (363.30 Kms.)  is an important link connecting Delhi to Ahmedabad.  With Broad Gauge conversion, this line has become immensely important, it being a major artery of Western and North Western Railways, providing an alternative BG route between Mumbai & Delhi.

On MG, the division earlier extended from Ajmer to Himmatnagar via Udaipur (excluding Chanderiya and Chittorgarh). Section from Chittaurgarh to Udaipur has recently been converted to BG during 2005-06,thus, providing direct BG link from Udaipur to Jaipur.  Ajmer to Chittaurgarh has also been converted to BG and commissioned in July 2007.   An MG branch line connects Marwar Junction on the main line with Mavli Junction on Chittaurgarh-Udaipur-Ahmedabad line.  Another MG branch line takes off at Mavli Junction for Bari Sadri, which has the ?one train only? system of working. 

The Division caters to the transportation needs of cement plants located on the division: Lakshmi Cement at Banas, Shree Cement at Bangurgram and Binani Cement at Keshavganj on BG.  Rock Phosphate, Soapstone Powder & Single Super Phosphate are loaded from Udaipur area. Two more loading points at Hamirgarh and Rupaheli have been added in August 2007 for loading Single Super Phosphate and Zinc concentrate respectively.

Major Railway infrastructure in the division comprises Carriage & Loco Workshops at Ajmer, which is headed by the Chief Workshop Manager with Deputy Chief Mechanical Engineer (Loco) and Dy. Chief Mechanical Engineer (Carriage & Wagon) under the control of Chief Mechanical Engineer, North Western Railway, Jaipur.

Broad Gauge Diesel Loco Shed, headed by Sr. DME (Diesel), is located at Abu Road under the control of Ajmer division.

Zonal Railway Training Institute at Udaipur is under the control of Chief Operations Manager, North Western Railway, Jaipur.

Carriage & Wagon examination facilities have been developed at Madar on Broad Gauge where premium examination is given to about 3 to 4 rakes daily.

 

Places Of Tourist Attraction

Ajmer

Ajmer derives its name from ?Ajai Meru? which means the invincible hills. King Ajaipal founded the city in 7th Century A.D. Ajmer was the capital of Chauhan Rajputs whose most illustrious son was Prithviraj Chauhan. The two well-known attractions at Ajmer are the Dargah of Khawaja Moinuddin Chisty and Pushkar Raj, which attract pilgrims and tourists from various parts of the country and abroad.  Two important fairs of international repute, namely Urs and Pushkar fair are held annually.  In addition to Dargah & Pushkar, Adai-Din-Ka Jhopra, Akbar Museum, Anasagar Lake, Foy Sagar Lake, Taragarh fort, Nasiyan (Jain Temple) are other points of tourist attraction.  The newly built monument of Prithviraj Chauhan on the mighty hills of Taragarh has further enhanced its glory.  At the footsteps of the same hills, a temple of Saibaba has been constructed recently.

Nathdwara

One of the most celebrated of the Vaishnava shrines of Shreenathji or Lord Krishna; it was built in the early 18th Century.  Thousands of pilgrims from all parts of India visit this shrine round the year, especially during Diwali, Holi & Janamashtami.

Mount Abu

Located at a distance of 29 Kms. from Abu Road station.  A large number of tourists visit Mount Abu. It is the only summer resort in Rajasthan and is known as ?Hill of Wisdom?.  Dilwara Temple, Achalgarh Fort, Nakki Lake, Sunset point and Guru Shikhar, the highest point in the Aravali range are some of the places of interest.

Udaipur

Udaipur is correctly designated as the ?City of Lakes? and the ?Venice of East?.  Places of interest are City Place, Sahelion Ki Bari, Pratap Smarak, Bhartiya Lok Kala Museum, Fateh Sagar Lake etc.  Nereby excursion points are Eklingli (22 Kms.), Haldighati (40 Kms.), Rajsamand Lake (48 Kms.), etc.

Falna

The Chaturmukh Temple at Ranakpur is known for its architectural, splendid  and carvings.  It is situated at 34 Kms. from Falna.  This Jain temple is dedicated to Adinathji and was built in 15th Century.  There are 1444 pillars in the Temple and none of them is similar.  The play of light and shade on the minutely carved figures has a tantalizing effect on the viewer.
