CHAPTER VII

 

COMMUNICATIONS

 

            During the last two centuries the world has grown much smaller with modern means of transport and communications. The development of railway, road, air, shipping and inland transportation, postal services, broadcasting, telephones, press, internet including building up of infrastructure for example roads, bridges, railway-tracks and other related  services, has  become  a  true   emblem   of    socio-economic development and has transformed the world into a one composite zone not far from reach. It is now possible to travel anywhere in the world in a few hours and to contact anywhere in a matter of minutes.The effective transport system forms the most valuable variable towards economic and social development. Efficient transport system helps rapid industrialization, creation of service sector and also helps intensification in agricultural production through improvement in techniques reaching out to distant areas. Besides, delivering agricultural produce in markets well in time also depends on it. Communications refers not only to the transporting of people and goods but also to the transmitting of messages and information. The carrying of messages has been an important part of everyday life from early times. Today there is a vast postal organization throughout the world. In present scenario the telephonic and satellite communication has lagged behind the postal communication.  Now-a-days in 21st century sending a written message anywhere in the world is just a matter of click of button on keyboard of computer via internet.

 

(a)   Old-time Trade Routes and Highways and Modes of Conveyance

 

The present area of Muktsar District was part of Firozpur District. In olden days modes of conveyance were not good. Life was   restricted only to villages and the requirements of the people were limited. People travelled on rare occasions like visits to holy places, for marriages and other social occasions. Mostly journey was performed in groups and often done by foot. The roads were unpaved and rivers mostly unbrigded. The road system remained badly neglected for long. The bullock-cart and light wheeled carriage pulled by a horse known as ekka or tonga or tum-tum were the chief means of transport. The bullock cart was a heavy substandard vehicle without springs or tyres, which could stand the longest usage and worst roads.It was used for carrying agricultural operations on the farm. The ekka was employed for both short and long distance and was more dignified than the bullockcarts. Camels, horses and ponies were maintained by the well-to-do persons and were used by the people for undertaking long journeys. With the development of network of railways, roads and airways the old         means of transport were being gradually replaced by the modern means of transport such as cars, station wagons, buses, tempos, trucks, etc.

 

(b) Road Transport

 

 During the eighties of the nineteenth century the principle unmetalled roads in the area were Fazilka to Sirsa via Arniwala-Malaut and Lambi. With the passage of time, the pace of road development took place. The number of unmetalled roads increased during the twentieth century. In the early years of twentieth century main unmetalled roads passing through the Muktsar were Firozpur Cantonment-Malaut (40 miles), Jalalabad-Giddarbaha (via Muktsar and Doda 35 miles), Fazilka-Sirsa via Malaut (51miles) and Malaut-Usman Khera via Abohar (38 miles). The condition of roads was not very healthy. The village roads were generally in dilipidated condition. After the Independence need was felt for constructing more roads for the economic development of the country as a result now there is a network of roads.

            The major roads passing through the Muktsar District are: Muktsar - Sitoguno - Dabwali   road,   Malaut-Fazilka   road,   Bathinda- Muktsar road, Muktsar-Jalalabad road and Firozpur–Muktsar road.

The table given below shows the position of roads in the district during 1996-97 to 2002-2003:

 It clearly indicates that there has been a significant development of roads in the district in the past few years.

 

(i) Classification of Roads*

 

According to Nagpur Plan of 1943I roads were classified as National Highways, State Highways, District Major Roads and Village Approach Roads. A detailed description of each of this category of roads is given below:

National Highways.- These are defined as the main highways running through the length and breadth of the country connecting large cities, capitals of various States and also roads required for strategic movements. These are constructed and maintained by the State Public Works Department out of the Central Government Funds.

 

            State Highways.-These are the main arterial roads of the State and are generally connected to the National Highways. Sometimes they connect highways of adjacent States and also district headquarters or important cities. These are constructed and maintained by the State Public Works Department. The State Highway passing through the district is State Highway No. 16 Kot Kapura- Muktsar-Sri Ganga Nagar road (64.94 kms).

           

District Major Roads.-These are defined as roads traversing each district, serving areas of production as well as markets. These roads connect the areas of production and markets with each other and also with highways and railways. In fact, these roads provide hauling service even into the heart of rural areas throughout the year. As on 31 March 2003, the total length of these roads in the district was 106.98 Kms, where as the total length of roads coming under the head ‘Other District Roads’ during the same period was 414.25 kms.

 

            Village Approach Roads.-These roads connect villages or groups of villages with each other and to the nearest district roads. Such roads are intended to serve the interior rural areas. These roads are maintained by State Public Works Department and Punjab Mandi Board. As on 31 March 2003, the total length of these roads maintained by State Public Works Department was 173.07 kms whereas by Punjab Mandi Board was 1907.33 kms during the same period.

 (ii) Vehicles and Conveyance

 

Before the introduction of rail communications and other mechanized transport in the area (presently the area covered by Muktsar District), camels were the only means of travelling and transportation. The roads were generally in very different condition and in many places were covered with sand hills which render cart traffic difficult.

With the passage of time, the metalled roads were constructed and all the villages and towns are linked with metalled roads and fast moving motor vehicles also came into use. In the Muktsar District the principal means of transport are automobiles and bicycles. During the first half of the twentieth century, the motor bus has become very popular and recently it has undergone such a marked development that wide range of automobile service is found to be operating in every corner of the district. Tractors have now become a popular means of transport with the farmers. The people have become speed minded and prefer to travel by mechanized vehicles.

           

Automobiles.- The automobiles play an important role in transportation system of the district. These have become a common means of travel and transportation of goods for short as well long distance. Presently the quicker means of conveyance in the district are: motorcycles,  scooters, mopeds, cars, pick-up vans, trucks, buses, mini-buses, station wagons, jeeps, taxis, tractors, auto-rickshaws tempos (three wheeler motor transport), etc.The two wheelers, viz motor cycles, scooters, etc. occupy an important place as a means of chief conveyance in the modern times. It gained strength year after year in the district and its members which stood at 1,655 in 1996-97 rose to 12,890 by 2002-2003. The automobiles in the Muktsar District are registered by District Transport Officer, Muktsar. The number of different types of motor vehicles registered in the district upto 31 March 2003 (year-wise) is given in Appendix-I on page 186.  

           

Bicycles. - The bicycle, the most common means of transport, is very much in use in both the urban and rural areas. Its operation is economical and it can be put to multiple use. Moreover its maintenance, cost is also very low. It is an essential means of conveyance in cities, especially for school going children and poor and lower middle class persons. For the villagers, it has become an easy means of transport from one place to another and for supplying of their surplus milk and vegetables in the neighbouring towns. But since there is no provision for registration of bicycles it is very difficult to correctly assess the total number of bicycles in use in district.

           

Cycle-Rickshaws.-  The cycle-rickshaws have become popular, cheap and faster means of  transport. It is a three-wheeled cycle pulled by a man with a sitting capacity of two persons. For short distances it is very cheap means of transport. It can pass through narrow and zig-zag streets. These are in a considerable number in the towns of the district. The development of roads has increased the mobility of cycle-rickshaws from the towns to the adjoining villages. According to the bye-laws framed by the State Government, persons who are physically fit and are between the ages of 18 and 45 generally ply this vehicle. Under the Punjab Cycle Rickshaw (Regulation of Licenses) Act, 1976, licenses are issued to the owners only.

           

  Camel Carriages.- Before the advent of mechanized transport, the tongas, ekkas and camels were the important means of transport within the towns and from towns to the adjoining villages.Although buses and rickshaws are plying in all the towns of the district, this pristine means of transport still retain some of their utility and importance. The camel carts are very helpful in transporting goods from one part of the city to another, from town to town, from town to villages and vice-versa. Now-a-days there is a keen competition between camels drawn carts on the one hand and the auto-rickshaws, cycle-rickshaws and tempos on the other for transporting goods for short distances.

 

(iii) Public and Private Transport

 

Before Independence, road transport was largely in the hands of private owners, who were interested mainly in large profits and seldom dared for convenience of passengers. With the rapid development of a network of roads and industrialization, road transport has expanded enormously.

            The Provincial Transport Controller headed the Transport Department till June 1969. He was responsible for the enforcement of Motor Vehicles Act and the rules framed hereunder. The Commercial Wing of the department also functions under his control. In order to give equal justice to the private operators and State owned transport, the Transport Department was bifurcated in June 1969, in two wings, the Commercial Wing and Non-Commercial Wing. The former known as Punjab Roadways was placed under the control of Director State Transport, Punjab and the latter was under the State Transport Commissioner, Punjab as Head of the Department. The Director, State Transport being overall incharge of the Commercial Wing is concerned with the development and operation of State Transport buses on commercial basis. The State Transport Commissioner looks after the Non-Commercial Wing of the Transport Department. He is assisted by Joint State Transport Commissioner (Enforcement), one Joint State Transport Commissioner (P) at headquarters, Secretaries Regional Transport Authorities posted at Patiala, Jalandhar and Firozpur and the District Transport Officers posted at each district headquarters. He is vested with powers and functions under the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988, Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989, Punjab Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989 and Punjab Motor Vehicles Taxation Act, 1924. His main functions are : to issue licenses to the drivers and conductors and for opening driving training  schools; to register motor vehicles; to realise motor vehicle taxes; to issue permits to the transport vehicles/stage carriage permits, contract carriage permits, permits to mini-buses, passenger tempos, auto rickshaws and all India tourist permits; to maintain Motor Vehicles Board of  Inspection; to control traffic by resorting to traffic checking; checking of illegal  operation of private operators, etc. to finalize  the reciprocal agreements with other adjoining States.

As per Transport Policy of the State announced on 9 August 1990 all inter-state routes are to be operated by State Transport Undertakings*, all operations on inter-state routes in accordance with reciprocal agreements or understanding between the concerned states to be exclusively undertaken by the State Transport; and monopoly routes to be exclusively operated by State Transport.  As regards bus routes on

National Highways falling within the State, these are shared in the ratio of 75:25 between the State Transport and private bus operators. On the State highways and other routes this ratio is 40:60**

 

          National Permit Scheme.- Under this scheme, which was launched in 1986 by the Government of India, a person is issued a national permit to operate his vehicle throughout the country or in the specified states. The only requirement is that his vehicle should be less than  12  years  old  and  should  be  mechanically  fit. The composit fee

charged  by  the  Punjab  State  was  Rs 1,500 which  was  enhanced   to

 Rs 5,000 on 30 August 1993.

 

*    Except the routes operated by private operators, which became inter-state route as a     result of re-organisation of State of Punjab in 1966.

** Vide Punjab Government Notification S.O.112/C.A. 59/98/S.102/97 dated 21 October 1997.

State Owned Services.- The facilities of public transport in the rural areas were inadequate in the past due to the non availability of good roads. However, during the last three decades considerable progress has been achieved and several schemes of road development are under way. The expansion and improvement of roads has inequitably led to the development of public passenger transport. The buses of State Transport Undertakings ply on almost all the main roads and major district roads. Muktsar District is served by the Punjab Roadways Depot Muktsar, which was set up on I January 1977.The details of the routes operated by Punjab Roadways, Muktsar  depot are given in Appendix –II  at  the  end  of  the Chapter on  pages 187 to 188.

 

Private Bus Service.- The private sector plays an important role in the field of transport in meeting the needs of  commuters in the district as the routes in the district have not been fully nationalized. The private owned transport services are transporting a large number of passengers in the district. A large number of private transport companies and few individual transporters are operating their vehicles. As per the Transport Policy of the Government a number of bus routes have been allotted to the private transport companies in the district. The particulars regarding the names of private companies and the routes operated by them are given in Appendix III at pages189 to 193.

 

Mini Bus Service.- To link all the villages in the district with motor transport facilities the mini bus scheme was introduced by the State Government. The main aim of the scheme is to link villages with nearest towns, tahsil/block headquarters and to generate employment. However, preference is also given to ex-servicemen, Scheduled Castes, Jodhpur detainees and Sikh migrants. A person is issued a permit to operate his vehicle on the condition that the total length of each route does not exceed 25 km and the total operation per bus does not exceed 250 km per day; not more than half of the total route length runs across a National Highway or State Highway; at least one of the terminal of the route shall be a village and shall not include more than one municipality except on a local route falling within municipal limit of town/municipality or city within both the starting and the  terminating points may be same or may fall within the same town/municipality or city, as the case may be, and it shall be ensured that the interests of  the state transport undertaking are not affected adversely on such routes. The mini-bus routes operated by different permit holders as on 31 March 2003 are given in Appendix IV at pages194 to 203.

 

Goods Transport.- Goods transport business on roads is entirely in the hands of private operators. The majority of these operators own one or two trucks only and is mostly unorganized. The system of booking agencies has been developed which cater the needs of both the operators and traders. Under this system operators are provided with parking and godown facilities and traders with a regular satisfactory service.The people of the district use road traffic in preference to rail for the transport of goods especially for short distances. The freight and incidental charges of road transport are less as compared to the railway. People are now even tending to transport goods by road for long distances, as the goods are usually delivered quicker and with less risk and often from door to door. The State Government is following liberal policy for the grant of public carrier permits. Anybody who comes forward with a road worthy vehicle is issued a truck permit. To facilitate inter-state movement of trucks for the transportation of goods from one state to another, the State Government has entered into liberal agreement with other states to facilitate free flow of goods throughout the country.

 

(c) Railways

 

 In the early days the area forming Muktsar District was deficient of rail and road development.With the advent of Britishers, the pace         of rail construction, was picked up. The first railway line South Punjab Railway opened in 1897 runs through the South of the Muktsar and Fazilka Tahsils and was providing direct connection with Karachi via Samasatta.The same company's Macleod Ganj railway line-Ludhiana Extention opened in 1905 was passing through the Moga, Firozpur, Muktsar and Fazilka Tahsils and was providing direct connection with main line to Karachi via Macleod Ganj. At present the Muktsar District lies in the Firozpur Division of the Northern Railway. Two railway lines pass through the district, viz. Firozpur-Fazilka line and Bathinda-Hindumalkot line. The Firozpur-Fazilka line passes through Muktsar Tahsil of the district. The railway stations falling on this line are: Muktsar and Bariwala. The Bathinda-Hindumalkot line serves the Malaut and Giddarbaha Tahsils of the district. The railway stations falling on this line are Pakki Tibbi, Malaut and Giddarbaha.

 

Rail-Road Competition.- The rail and road modes are worldwide the dominant modes of transport. During the 1950s the rail mode occupied, commanding position. The position of the railways remained same till 1970s.In the beginning of the eighties India became a road dominant economy. This was affected due to the implementation of three Five-Year Plans which led to increase industrial and agricultural production. Rapid growth of population, growth of consumer goods industries and industries requiring special facilities had increased the demand of road transport. Another reason for diversion to road traffic seems to be the lower freight rates, proper supervision, absence of irksome formalities and door to door service. The four lanning of national highways and construction of super highways increased the efficiency and speed of road transport. Although all forms of road transport have shown spectacular increase in volume yet in respect of long-distance travel, heavy machinery and for bulky articles, there is a pronounced preference for railways.

In order to make both modes of transport complementary to each other railway authorities have planned the travelling on rail more comfortable. For this purpose the following classes of rail-passenger were taken to be in competition with travel by car: general air-conditioned, air-conditioned first class,   air-conditioned sleeper,    air-conditioned three tier, first-class rail and first-class ordinary classes. The classes of rail travel that are taken to be competitive with travel by bus on road are second-class rail, second-class ordinary, sleeper-class rail and ordinary sleeper-class. Besides this the railways have started superfast trains, special trains and luxury trains such as Shatabdi, Rajdhani Express, Palace on Wheels, etc.

 

(d) Waterways, Ferries and Bridges

 

Waterways.- There is no perennial river flowing through the district.

  Bridges.- Bridges are constructed over the streams, canals, chos, etc. for the smooth running of  traffic.

 

   (e) Air Transport

 

  There is no aerodrome in Muktsar District.

                       

(f) Travel and Tourist Facilities

 

In the Muktsar District there is no modern hotel worth mentioning. However, a number of restaurants and small hotels in the urban areas with lodging facilities are available. Besides, there are dharmshalas and serais in the district where tourists and visitors on visit to the district can stay. In addition, gurudwaras in urban as well as in rural areas provide free boarding and lodging facilities to the visitors.

Rest Houses.- These are maintained by different Government departments to accommodate their employees while on tour to the district. The employees of the public undertakings also make use of the facility. A list of rest houses in the district is given in Appendix V at page 204.                   .

 

            (g) Posts, Telegraphs and Telephones

 

The facilities now existing in the field of posts and telegraphs and telephones are of recent origin. No precise information is available about the system that prevailed in the early centuries in these tracts for the despatch of messages. However, courier system employing runners or horses appears to have been in vogue and it was more or less confined to a few main lines connecting the principal towns with the rest of Government.

Before Independence, the postal system of the district was poor, because the number of sub-post offices was very low and these were located at a great distance. Dak runners were used to take a long time to carry dak from sub-post offices to village and vice versa. After Independence development of road transport has helped the expansion of postal facilities with the opening of a large number of new post offices and branch post offices and provision of delivery vans. The dak is now delivered more expeditiously to provide postal facilities to the public, letter boxes have been affixed at the important centers in towns which are cleared at fixed timings, twice or thrice a day.

Post offices in the Muktsar District are under the control of the Senior Superintendent, Post offices, Faridkot Division, Faridkot, who assists the Director Postal Services Punjab and Union Territory Chandigarh to provide postal facilities to the public. All the villages of the Muktsar District have been covered under daily dak delivery system.

From 15 August 1972 the PIN code system (Postal Index Number code system) was introduced in the country. Under this system, the names of post offices are intended to be replaced by number. The PIN code is six digit number.The first, number on the left side denotes the region, the second and the third stands for a sub area in the region and the last three digits indicate the delivery post office.It provides with a built in routing information for postal sorting and quick delivery of the post.  The Poastal Index Number PIN Code of Muktsar District is 152026.

As on 31 March 2003, there were 1 Mukhya Dak Ghar,14 Sub Post Offices and 119 Branch Post Offices in the district. A list of these post offices is given in the Appendix VI on pages 205 to 207.

Telegraph.- The district is served by a number of combined post offices which also cater the needs of people for telegraphs. With the expansion of telephone facilities the use of telegraphs has considerably reduced.

Telephone.- As on 31 March 2003, the number of telephone exchanges functioning in the district was 54, which were under the jurisdiction of General Manager, Telecom, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited, Firozpur. The particulars regarding telephone exchanges with telephone connections functioning in the district as on 31 March 2003 are given in Appendix VII on pages 208  to 209.

 

Radio and Televisions.- There is no radio station in the district. The needs of the district are met by All India Radio Station at Jalandhar.

            For the television coverage the district is served by high power transmitter located at Jalandhar. There are cable T.V.operators all over the district and they relay various programmes of various T.V. channels including those of foreign countries, 24 hours on payment of a monthly fixed fee.

The numer of radio and television owners have however, increased substantially in the recent years. The actual number of radio and television sets in the district is not available as the radio/ transistors of all bands and television sets have been exempted for license fee.
