It’s time for a halli-day
Reaching Kempegowda International Airport from any part of the city is easier said than done. But if the powers-that-be apply a little thought, you could end up with a cost-and-time saver in the form of a suburban railway link to KIA. Mirror brings you the finer aspects of what it means to journey right into Bengaluru’s northern frontiers

Bellandur to Hebbal in 35 minutes, at a cost of `10. No way? Way! That is if you are like around 2,000 city folk who have said goodbye to traffic jams and the pain (physical and otherwise) of travelling 30-35 kms a day (one-way) to and from work. And they have managed to do this by junking their carsbikes and jumping on to a train instead.
While many debates have been held off late about the proposed measures being taken by the government to ease traffic congestion in the city, a quiet few have made the switch to traveling on outstation trains that stop at railway stations across the city. Bengaluru does not have a local train network like Mumbai or Chennai,

which is why many people don't even know that there are railway stations in, say , Whitefield and Bellandur, where one can catch a train to go across the city to destinations like Hebbal and Lottegollahalli. For six years, techie Suhas Narayanamurthy was travelling from his home in Yelahanka to his offices in Electronics City, Whitefield and Bellandur on his two-wheeler. As a result, he was bed-ridden after suffering a slipped disc due to the long-distance travel on his scooter. Suhas was aware of a train station near his house, and 23 months ago, in an attempt to find an alternative mode of travel, he thought about checking if there was one near his office at RMZ Ecoworld in Bellandur. “To my surprise, I found that there are two stations close to my office -Carmelaram Railway Station and Bellandur Road Railway Station.I tried taking the train to work one day , and have been doing so since. My travel time has reduced drastically , and I come back home fresh and have more time to spend with my family . I am also saving a lot of money ,“ says Suhas.
After realizing the benefits of travelling by train, Suhas started the social media page Namma City Express to spread awareness among city folk who can benefit from the train service. Word spread quickly as people shared the information on the page; it has so far been shared with two lakh people across the globe.
Manju Janarthanan, a lead consultant who works at ITC Infotech, travels from Carmelaram Railway Station to Banaswadi Railway Station and back every day .And she covers this distance in a span of 20 minutes.Manju has not only been reaping the physical and psychological benefits of not travelling by road, but switching to train travel has also helped her retain her job.“Travelling to work used to take 1.15 hours by bike, and two hours by car and bus (one is required to change two buses). I have a young child, and I was thinking about quitting my job because of the distance. I discussed this with a colleague, who asked me to try travelling by train instead. It turned out to be a life-saving option and has helped me retain my job. The trains are not always on time, but there are around 1,900 people who give real-time updates of where each train is via the Trainspotters group on Telegram. This way , not just me, but many other women have benefited from travelling by train,“ she says.
Many people also club Metro and train travel, as the Baiyappanahalli Metro Station is a short walk from the Baiyappanahalli Railway Station.
Although travelling by train has eased stress and reduced travel time considerably , a common complaint is the frequency of the trains.Chaitra Ramesh, an analyst, who lives in Yelahanaka and works at RMZ Ecoworld, takes a train from Hebbal Railway Station to Bellandur Railway Station -a journey that takes 20-25 minutes and costs `10 -only when she is in the general shift, as the timings are not feasible when she works in the US shift. To tackle this issue, Suhas has been in touch with Gopinath, s senior divisional opera tionals manager, South Western Railways, who is also in charge of the s timetable for trains, and , Sanjay Agarwal, the division al railway manager. To making travel to and from the stations easier, T Prabhakar, former KSRTC chairman, is helping arrange a BMTC bus shuttle service from the rail way stations to tech parks, and vice versa. These buses will not ply on the main roads, but will approach the tech parks from the back gates.

Thanks to the South Western Railway (SWR), the long-pending demand for introduction of an originating train from Vizag to Bengaluru was realised with the launch of the 06579 Yesvantapur-Visakhapatnam weekly special Tatkal express.
Though the East Coast Railway (ECoR) had failed to introduce a direct train to cater to the high demand for berths from Vizag to Bengaluru, it had taken over the special train, launched by the SWR in the past. After running it for sometime, it gave the most inconvenient timings, converted it into a Suvidha special with dynamic fare and finally did not renew it.

software engineer from Bengaluru, Venky, says how popular the special Tatkal express is. “I had booked a bus ticket for Rs.2,500 to travel to Vizag for Deepavali and after seeing on Twitter that SWR was running a Tatkal Special, I cancelled my bus ticket and booked my ticket in the special train. By the time, I completed booking my ticket the availability position came down from 378 to 77 in just half-an-hour.”
“The train was delayed at the starting point itself in view of the late intimation to passengers. All the coaches were jam-packed within four hours after announcement of the train. The timings are very convenient not only to the people of Visakhapatnam but also to those from cities and towns in Andhra Pradesh.”
“During the course of interaction with fellow passengers, I came to know that many had cancelled their bus tickets and were travelling by this train. They all wanted that this train should be made a regular train. The next afternoon around 3.30 p.m., train reached Duvvada, from where the jurisdiction of ECoR starts.
“As SWR took up the mantle of the demands from Vizag, ECoR stopped this train several times and gave clearance to other trains, while our train was made to wait at the outer signal. Finally, our train reached PF no. 5 at 5 p.m. The disgusting acts of ECoR did not end there. They changed the ‘tatkal train’ to ‘Suvidha Special’ with dynamic fare in the return direction. While I paid Rs.650 (sleeper class) from Yesvantapur to Vizag, I found it was Rs.2,000 (sleeper class) in the return journey.”
“I feel that ECoR is playing all sorts of games to get this train cancelled on the plea that this train has no patronage. A new railway zone in AP with headquarters in Visakhapatnam is the only solution to end the injustice from ECoR,” says Venky.
The Railways do not seem to have learnt a lesson even after getting a spate of complaints on Twitter on the unclean coaches and other problems on trains originating/terminating in Visakhapatnam.
Barely a couple of weeks after passengers tweeted on untidy coaches in popular trains like Godavari and LTT express trains, a passenger who travelled by the S1 coach of Godavari express to Hyderabad on October 28, says there is no improvement in the situation.
“The wash basins, both in toilets and outside, were overflowing with water, barely a few hours after the train started from Vizag. One can imagine the plight of those who wish to wash their face or brush their teeth in the early hours,” says R.V. Koteswara Rao of Visakhapatnam.
“To add to our woes, there was no power in the toilets and there was no one to attend to the problems. Beggars were getting into the reserved coaches and travelling short distances and there was no one to check their entry,” he adds.

North coastal andhra people very clear about the asking zone for VSKP. Even Srikakulam MP raised this issue of zonal HQ at vskp many times in parliament. Dont judge it by just new paper reports.
Who told if vizag gets train to delhi like Raj will not be useful for north andhra ?? It will stop at VZM, PVP if goes via Katni. Stops at SLO, RJY, EE, BZA if goes via WL. How come one train will help only originating station ??
Still many VSKP originating train have GNWL upto BZA.
...
more...
Most of the COA trains wont GNWL to BZA but vskp originating trains have. Even some machilipatnam train not having GNWL to bza.
If new zone comes PSA can be created as a Originating station with Pit lines which is not happening under ECoR.
Also Railway zone is not only for new trains, there are huge issues related to employs and region sentiments. I think North andhra region people can understand better what i am saying.
If south andhra people constantly ignore the issues of north andhra and hatred towards vizag develops it will create much bigger issues to AP state than SCR split.

I have never thought of it as a silly demand. I too was very keen about development of railway facilities in the VSKP, VZM, CHE and the rest of AP that is struggling under ECoR. Your arguments were very concise and informative and I shall try to convey the same idea to others in future. Thank you for that.
I was born and brought up in Kakinada and Vizag and have always closely followed railway developments in both areas. But only difference was that I always tried to argue in favor of a situation where Vizag region gets it's share of facilities while the rest of Andhra stays intact with SCR, under which it has

done well. (To be honest, I favor the old 9 zone system and usually put up idealistic arguments about people learning to work together instead of just separating when there are problems. Don't pay attention to that rambling. :) )
However, don't misjudge me for saying this. Speaking only from a railway perspective, unlike the VSKP region, which has a strong reason to demand a separation from it's home zone, the rest of AP has no such extreme problems with SCR and has no reason to demand for a separate zone. So you cannot expect people from here to just start supporting a move to separate from SCR without getting a clear picture as to why such a move has become necessary or what difference it can bring to the concerned regions. At the outset, the new zone doesn't mean as much to the rest of AP as it means to the northern part. Only with a proper communication of the needs and necessities can we get a unanimous support for the idea. And random people demanding diversion of trains from CCT to VSKP here on IRI did not help the situation as far as my reactions here on IRI are concerned.
So, please understand that neither I nor any one else from AP are against VSKP region getting better railway infrastructure. But solely as an RF, I hope you can understand why RF's from the SCR region may not accept the idea of a new zone wholeheartedly as much as they would accept the idea of merging WAT with SCR.

See my friend, Again i am saying dont see it as VSKP region issues alone. If that the case the VSKP region from where highest taxes are getting collected by state, spending more on Capital region at Guntur by state govt, what if people of vskp region people fights for not using our taxes some where ?? As a state we need to take care about issues of all region. If not another separate state movement will come.
I dont know how many scr RF will be there , but railway issues of Vizag region is all about 1 crs people. Its became one of the biggest issue of this region my years.

again if vizag is part of AP railway it helps atleast 6-7 coastal not alone north coastal AP. Many trains to south can be started as it has more pit lines and also space for expansion. Diversion of CCT trains to VSKP not possible as CCT is terminal but extension of VSKP trains to CCT is possible.

Hardly anyone in Rayalseema bothered for a new zone. Because they know better than to protest. The state split because coastal Andhra, Krishna, Godavari districts cornered all resources. Many in Rayalseema wanted 3 way split (after split was finalized), because they knew capital, revenue and other developments will all be cornered by those districts.

One can compare Uttarandhra and Rayalseema as being short changed by all attention and development of coastal districts.

No for HUP, ATP region I was saying. That DMM-BZA train has no UR coaches at all, so this will help to some extent.

Now a days it is difficult to get the ticket. Last week RAC 9 (Original status RAC100) was in RAC only after chart preparation too.
Atleast two extra coach on FRI departure from YPR and SUN departure from CAN required.
ബെംഗളൂരു ∙ ബാനസവാടി റയിൽവേ സ്റ്റേഷനിൽ കവർച്ചാശ്രമം തടഞ്ഞ മലയാളി യാത്രക്കാരന് അക്രമികളുടെ വെട്ടേറ്റു ഗുരുതര പരുക്ക്. കോഴിക്കോട് സ്വദേശിയും ഹൊറമാവ് നന്ദനം കോളനി നിവാസിയുമായ സനൂപിനാണ് കഴുത്തിലും തോളിലും വെട്ടേറ്റത്. കഴുത്തിൽ 27 തുന്നലും തോളിൽ ഏഴു തുന്നലും വേണ്ടിവന്ന സനൂപ് അപകടനില തരണം ചെയ്തിട്ടുണ്ട്. വെട്ടേറ്റിട്ടും അക്രമികളെ പിന്തുടർന്നു പിടികൂടാൻ സനൂപ് ശ്രമിച്ചെങ്കിലും സാധിച്ചില്ല. ഞായറാഴ്ച രാത്രി 11.55നു യശ്വന്തപുരയിൽ നിന്നു പാലക്കാട് വഴിയുള്ള മംഗളൂരു എക്സ്പ്രസിൽ നാട്ടിലേക്കു പോകാനാണ് സനൂപും സുഹൃത്ത് സജീഷും പതിനൊന്നരയോടെ ബാനസവാടി സ്റ്റേഷനിലെത്തിയത്.
ട്രെയിൻ കാത്തിരിക്കവെ രണ്ടുപേർ ഇവരെ സമീപിച്ചു നിങ്ങൾ ഏതു നാട്ടുകാരാണെന്നു ചോദിച്ചു. മലയാളികളാണെന്നറിഞ്ഞപ്പോൾ നിങ്ങൾക്കെന്താണിവിടെ കാര്യമെന്നായി. ഇതു തങ്ങളുടെ ഏരിയ ആണെന്നു പറഞ്ഞശേഷം ഇവരിലൊരാൾ സനൂപിന്റെ വാച്ചിൽ പിടിത്തമിട്ടു. വാച്ചും കൈവശമുണ്ടായിരുന്ന 50,000 രൂപയുടെ മൊബൈലും ബലമായി പിടിച്ചുവാങ്ങാൻ നോക്കിയെങ്കിലും സനൂപ് കുതറിമാറി. കഴുത്തിലെ മാല പൊട്ടിക്കാൻ ശ്രമിച്ചതും ചെറുത്തു. ഇതിനിടെ കത്തിയെടുത്ത അക്രമി പിന്നിൽ നിന്ന് സനൂപിന്റെ കഴുത്തിനു വെട്ടുകയായിരുന്നു. ഒഴിഞ്ഞുമാറിയെങ്കിലും കഴുത്തിൽ നീളത്തിൽ മുറിവേറ്റു. തുടർന്നു തോളിലും വെട്ടേറ്റു. സജീഷിനെയും വെട്ടിയെങ്കിലും ഒഴിഞ്ഞുമാറിയതിനാൽ രക്ഷപ്പെട്ടു. തുടർന്ന് അക്രമികൾ ഓടി രക്ഷപ്പെടാൻ ശ്രമിച്ചു. ചോര വാർന്നൊലിച്ചിട്ടും സനൂപും

സജീഷും ഇവരെ പിന്തുടർന്നു.
എന്നാൽ റെയിൽപാളത്തിലേക്കു ചാടിയ അക്രമികൾ പാളത്തിലെ കല്ലുകളെടുത്ത് ഇവർക്കു നേരെ എറിഞ്ഞശേഷം ഓടി മറഞ്ഞു. ഇതിനിടെ പ്ലാറ്റ്ഫോമിലുണ്ടായിരുന്ന മറ്റൊരു മലയാളി യാത്രക്കാരൻ തോർത്തുപയോഗിച്ചു സനൂപിന്റെ മുറിവു കെട്ടുകയും സമീപത്തുണ്ടായിരുന്നവർ ചേർന്ന് ആശുപത്രിയിൽ പ്രവേശിപ്പിക്കുകയുമായിരുന്നു. സനൂപിനേറ്റ മുറിവ് അൽപംകൂടി ആഴത്തിലായിരുന്നെങ്കിൽ ജീവൻ അപകടത്തിലാകുമായിരുന്നുവെന്ന് ഡോക്ടർമാർ പറഞ്ഞു. ബെംഗളൂരുവിൽ ഇന്റീരിയർ ഡിസൈനറാണ് സനൂപ്. ബെംഗളൂരു കേരളസമാജം ഭാരവാഹികൾ ചേർന്നു ബാനസവാടി പൊലീസ് സ്റ്റേഷനിലും റയിൽവേ സ്റ്റേഷനിലും പരാതി നൽകി. സംഭവത്തെക്കുറിച്ചു ഡിവിഷനൽ റെയിൽവേ മാനേജരുമായി ചർച്ച നടത്തിയതായും സമാജം പ്രസിഡന്റ് സി.പി. രാധാകൃഷ്ണൻ, ജനറൽ സെക്രട്ടറി റജികുമാർ എന്നിവർ പറഞ്ഞു.
റയിൽവേ സ്റ്റേഷനിൽ സിസി ക്യാമറകൾ സ്ഥാപിക്കണമെന്നും പൊലീസ് പട്രോളിങ് ശക്തമാക്കണമെന്നുമാണ് ആവശ്യപ്പെട്ടത്. മലയാളികൾ ഏറെ ആശ്രയിക്കുന്ന ബാനസവാടി സ്റ്റേഷനിലുണ്ടായ സംഭവം മലയാളികളെ ആശങ്കയിലാക്കി. കേരളത്തിലേക്കുള്ള യശ്വന്തപുര–കണ്ണൂർ എക്സ്പ്രസ് (16527), യശ്വന്തപുര–കൊച്ചുവേളി ഗരീബ്‌രഥ് എസി എക്സ്പ്രസ് (12257), യശ്വന്തപുര–പാലക്കാട്–മംഗളൂരു (16565) ട്രെയിനുകളിലായി നൂറുകണക്കിനു മലയാളികളാണ് ഇവിടെ നിന്നു നാട്ടിലേക്കു പോകുന്നത്. മുൻപും ഇവിടെ മലയാളികൾ ആക്രമിക്കപ്പെട്ടിട്ടുണ്ടെങ്കിലും ഇടക്കാലത്ത് ഇത്തരം സംഭവങ്ങൾ കുറഞ്ഞിരുന്നു. തനിയെ യാത്ര ചെയ്യുന്നവരെ ലക്ഷ്യമിട്ടുള്ള കവർച്ചയിൽ പ്രദേശവാസികൾക്കു പങ്കുണ്ടെന്നു യാത്രക്കാർ ആരോപിക്കുന്നു.
സ്വർണാഭരണങ്ങൾ, മൊബൈൽ ഫോൺ എന്നിവയാണ് കവർച്ചക്കാരുടെ പ്രധാനലക്ഷ്യം. എതിർക്കാൻ ശ്രമിക്കുന്നവരെ ആയുധങ്ങൾ ഉപയോഗിച്ച് ആക്രമിക്കുകയും ചെയ്യും. ട്രെയിനിലെ ജനാലയ്ക്കരികിൽ മൊബൈലിൽ സംസാരിച്ചു കൊണ്ടിരുന്ന മലയാളിയുടെ മൊബൈൽ‌ അക്രമി തട്ടിയെടുത്തോടിയ സംഭവം രണ്ടു വർഷം മുൻപാണുണ്ടായത്. ട്രെയിനിൽ നിന്നിറങ്ങി അക്രമിയെ പിന്തുടർന്നു പിടികൂടിയെങ്കിലും ഇയാളും കൂട്ടാളികളും ചേർന്നു മലയാളി യുവാവിനെ മർദ്ദിച്ചശേഷം രക്ഷപ്പെട്ടു. ബാനസവാടിയിൽ ഏറ്റവും വൈകിയെത്തുന്ന ട്രെയിനാണ് മംഗളൂരു എക്സ്പ്രസ്. രാത്രി 12.18നു ട്രെയിനെത്തുമ്പോൾ സ്റ്റേഷൻ പൊതുവെ വിജനമായിരിക്കും. പ്ലാറ്റ്ഫോമിൽ പലയിടത്തും വെളിച്ചമില്ലാത്തതും അക്രമികൾക്കു സഹായകമാകുന്നു. രണ്ടു പൊലീസുകാരെ ഇവിടെ ഡ്യൂട്ടിക്കിട്ടുണ്ടെങ്കിലും അവരുടെ സേവനം ലഭിക്കാറില്ലെന്നും യാത്രക്കാർ ആരോപിക്കുന്നു.
നിങ്ങൾ പറയൂ
റയിൽവേ സ്റ്റേഷനിൽ സമാനമായ അനുഭവങ്ങൾ നിങ്ങൾക്കുമുണ്ടായിട്ടുണ്ടോ? മലയാള മനോരമ വായനക്കാരുമായി അവ പങ്കുവയ്ക്കാം. ഫോൺ: 080–22867050 (ഉച്ചയ്ക്കു മൂന്നു മുതൽ അഞ്ചുവരെ മാത്രം.) ഇ–മെയിൽ: blrmanorama@gmail.com

After years of struggle, the Banaswadi railway station is finally getting some critical amenities. But BMTC bus connectivity remains a distance dream, leaving passengers at the mercy of autorickshaws and the new taxi option.
Equipped with two platforms, the station will soon get a foot overbridge. There are food stalls, adequate lighting and the platform is long enough to accommodate even Express trains. The halts permitted for many long distance trains and introduction of the special passenger DEMU train between Yeshwanthpura and Hosur has accelerated the station’s development.
But there

is no bus stop or a terminal in the station’s vicinity. The closest bus stops are in Lingarajapuram and Jaibharathnagar. These are at quite a distance from the station, and walking till there is not an option particularly for senior citizens with their luggage. A railway personnel informs the stops are at least one to two km away from the station.
The station has more than 10 halting trains and caters to hundreds of passengers everyday. Those going towards Kerala, Chennai and Coimbatore rely on this station heavily.
Mani Vannan, a passenger who regularly commutes to Chennai, explains the problem in a nutshell: “I stay near Hennur Depo and have to take the Lingarjapuram route. It takes me 15 to 20 minutes by walk to reach the bus station at Lingarajapuram. I don’t take autos as they charge higher rates. It would be good if the railways and BMTC together take up the initiative to set up a bus terminal near the railway station.”
Bad roads and the stalled Lingarajapuram underpass construction near railway line makes it dangerous to walk towards the bus stop, adds Mani Vannan.
Another regular passenger, Ambika Menon feels that dealing with autorickshaw drivers is a dicey affair as they pester passengers while walking by. Since the station attracts a big chunk of people from the city central, the railways should be more proactive in seeking bus connectivity. “It is impossible for women like us to walk all the way to the station, carrying children,”Menon adds.
However, a railway official contends on condition of anonymity that the roads leading to the station are all narrow. Thus, he says, the question of having a bus terminal there does not arise.
But Maruthi Seva Nagar Corporator Hanna Bhuvaneshwari recalls that three years back, the present Bengaluru Development Minister KJ George -- who also represents Sarvagnanagar constituency-- had taken a step to start a bus route near the station.
A few buses were also introduced, she claims. “The buses plied mostly towards Cox Town and Shivajinagar. However, the response was not up to the mark and hence, the project was withdrawn after few days,” says Bhuvaneshwari.
Meanwhile, a few commuters have teamed up against the autorickshaw drivers taking the overcharging matter to social media. The Baiyappanahalli railway police staff recently conducted a drive against the menace. However, as many passengers reiterate, the problem persists!
