Apr 19 2017 (06:53)   South Western Railway to propose rerouting of Bengaluru-Karwar trains via Shravanabelagola

Decision was taken at a Zonal Railway Users’ Consultative Committee meeting in Hubballi
The South Western Railway (SWR) on Tuesday decided to recommend to the Railway Board to divert Yeshwantpur-Karwar tri-weekly day express and Bengaluru-Karwar/Kannur daily night express via the newly opened Bengaluru-Hassan via Shravanabelagola line.
SWR took this decision at the meeting of Zonal Railway Users’ Consultative Committee (ZRUCC) in Hubballi, attended by among others MPs Pralhad Joshi, and Karadi Sanganna and General Manager Ashok Kumar Gupta.
day train, 16515/516, presently runs via Arsikere and the night train 16523/524, 16517/518, run via Mysuru. SWR had earlier sought opinion from ZRUCC members regarding the diversion on the ground that the diversion would drastically reduce the travel time. ZRUCC member Vinay Kumar from Kadur told The Hindu that diverting the day train would deprive train facility to and from the coast for travellers from Hubballi and sought a connecting train from Arsikere to Hassan. He also said the Mysuru Chamber of Commerce and Industry opposed the move to divert the night express train as it was the only connecting train for people from Ramanagaram, Mandya, and Mysuru to the coast.
According to SWR’s Chief Public Relations Officer E. Vijaya, the users were convinced about providing connecting trains from Arsikere and Mysuru to Hassan to get into Karwar day and night trains. Finally, it was decided to send proposals to the Railway Board to allow SWR to reroute the two trains, she said. The approval might come within a month, Ms. Vijaya added.
With the diversion of tri-weekly day train, six-day a week day train service would be available between Bengaluru and the coast, Ms. Vijaya said. Already, train No. 16575/576, Yeshwantpur-Mangaluru Junction Kudla Express is operational on the newly commissioned shorter route, she said.
Mr. Vinay Kumar also said South Western Railway rejected the demand to reintroduce Mangaluru-Miraj Mahalakshmi Express via Arsikere and Hubballi, which was running before gauge conversion of Mangaluru-Hassan line. The Zone cited restrictions on number of trains on the ghat section as the reason.
SWR also decided to cancel Hubballi-Sholapur Intercity Express for poor patronage.

Apr 12 2017 (11:14)   Petition seeks Bengaluru-Karwar overnight train through Kunigal

The high court on Monday ordered notice to the state government, the Railways and the railway development board in response to a PIL seeking an exclusive Bengaluru-Karwar overnight train via the recently commissioned Kunigal line.
A division bench headed by Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee also ordered notice to the commissioner for Railway Safety and Konkan Railway Corporation and others on a petition filed by Sanjay Revanka from Karwar taluk.
Raveendra G Kolle, counsel for the petitioner, highlighted railway minister Suresh Prabhu's tweet on March 21 about reducing travel time by four hours
and said the authorities did not consider the same when the petitioner submitted a representation in terms of the court's earlier directive.For reasons unknown, Karwar Express and Kannur Express were merged in to one combined train, he said and added that the delay in introducing the train will benefit private bus operators.
If Karwar Express is run via Kunigal line through Kankanadi KRCL Junction, without entering Mangaluru city , it will not only save more than four hours, but also benefit a large number of long distance commuters. Otherwise, passengers have to first enter Mangaluru City station from Kankanadi KRCL Junction and again come back to Kankanadi Junction, he pointed out.

The journey was good upto Hassan as i travelled upto Hassan only.The train reached around 11.05 am as per schedule. The response from the public was quite good. The unreserved coaches had good number of passengers. Though i had reserved etkt with D6 coach the train had only D1 TO D4 as reserved coaches.The TTE informed that he has already informed the concerned to set right the mistake. He was also pleased to see good response in reserved coaches also. An AC chair car is likely to be added shortly as informed by TTE. I am happy that the train had a good response and if timings are revised to reach YPR around 7.30 pm with extension to MAQ this will become popular and can reduce the demand for buses in day time. Sorry i could not take any snaps.

Thank you very much sir.
1. it is great to know that it reached HAS ontime. with a speed of 57kmph.
2. i heard from my father who travelled in Hassan ICE, that the unreserved coaches are always full and people fight. ICE and Kudla has just 14 coaches with 8 UR. keeping the demand in mind and less no of trains to cater to people, hope swr increases rake length and UR no. of coaches. when my father travelled ICE was 1 hour late.
any idea on new services like DEMU or re-routing karwar day train or night train sir?

MUMBAI: Railway ministry has decided to withdraw implementation of Aadhaar based ticketing system for reserved ticket ((both counter and e-tickets) for senior citizens.Western Railway's chief public relations officer Ravinder Bhakar said, "The concession to senior citizens shall not be denied only for the reason that the person does not possess Aadhaar card. However, they are required to carry some documentary proof showing their age or date of birth and have to produce it if demanded by on-board ticket checking staff." He clarified that senior citizens can book reserved tickets across the reservation counters as well as through internet without Aadhaar card. Earlier, railways had decided to make Aadhaar based verification mandatory for getting concessional tickets for senior citizen with effect from April 1 and during journey senior citizen passengers has to carry any of the original documents including Aadhaar Card as notified from time to time for the purpose of identity...
proof. Bhakar said, "But, now the implementation of Aadhaar based ticketing system has been withdrawn with immediate effect."
