Kochi: Trains from Kerala have been scuttled citing non-availability of platforms in Bengaluru even as new services from other locations across the nation are having a jolly ride.
Authorities say heavy rush at SR Bengaluru City, Yeshwantpur, Bengaluru Cantonment and Krishnarapauram stations force them to disallow trains from Kerala.
Demands

were raised at conferences that trains from Kerala should be allowed to stop, but the Railways have not bothered to consider it.
The Thiruvanathapuram-Bengaluru Cantonment train, announced in the 2013 budget, is yet to start services.
At the same time, the Hamsafar Express from Varanasi to the same destination would begin service from June 21.
Charges are that the Railways is obliging the private bus lobby, which will lose income if more trains run from Kerala to Bengaluru.
All trains announced in the 2013 budget have started running within a year. The Thiruvanathapuram-Bengaluru premium (22658/22657), which was to run twice a week, is the only one that has not yet started services.
It was to start from Kerala on Thursdays and Sundays. Return services were set for Monday and Friday.
The maximum rush from Bengaluru to Kerala is on Friday and from Kerala to Bengaluru on Sunday. If trains are added on these days, private buses will be affected. That's why private bus operators are pulling the strings at Railways Headquarters and at Bengaluru.
The train was scheduled in all railway time tables published since 2013, but there has been no effort to start it. Passengers say MPs from Kerala have never bothered to raise it in Parliament.
Six new services were started from different stations in Bengaluru to other cities since 2013 even when the authorities disallow Kerala trains on the premise that the stations are too busy. The Coimbatore-Bengaluru and Uday double-decker trains will start soon while the new trains announced from Kerala remains on paper.

BENGALURU: The city's oldest railway station and the youngest railway junction will soon get a makeover. Tenders will be finalized on Saturday for redeveloping the Cantonment Station, which was built in 1864, and Yeshwantpur station, the second biggest junction in the city, to bring them on a par with airport terminals.
The two stations are among 23 stations across the country chosen for redevelopment. While Malaysian agencies have been roped in as consultants, the actual work will be executed by top Indian and multi-national infrastructure companies, say officials in South Western Railway (SWR).
Redevelopment

envisages increasing amenities like eateries, hotels and shopping avenues and improving transit-oriented development, including access to station as well as other modes of transport outside its premises like buses and taxibays and Metro.
The redeveloper will have a 45-year lease period to monetize the land, but will have to hand over the station to respective railway zones after 15 years, including the transit-oriented development. In February, SWR floated the tenders for redevelopment and the last date for sending applications was June 1.
Bengaluru Cantonment Station is the city's first railway station and currently connects to 499 stations through 269 trains directly in a month and witnesses 7,500 footfalls daily. There are 30 daily trains moving through this station. It's an A category station (earning revenue between Rs 8 crore and Rs 60 crore). Yeshwantpur railway station is an A1 station (revenue above Rs 60 crore) and sees 126 train movements and over 1.5 lakh footfalls daily.
The Cantonment Station has an attached land parcel of 2.25 acres, while Yeshwantpur has about 20 acres available for commercial exploitation like parking slots, shops, hotels and office spaces for both private builder and the railways.
The Cantonment Station was built by the Madras Presidency and the first train chugged between Cantonment and then Jolarpettai station in 1864. The trains were operated by Madras Railway in the pre-Independence era. It was revamped in 2011 with a new entrance and a new ticketing counter behind platform 2. Slowly, AC VIP lounge, waiting halls, eateries, passenger reservation centres, a food plaza and clinic for medical help to passengers were added to the station.
Several construction majors have evinced interest in leveraging real estate available with the railway authorities in the city.

S Soin, Additional General Manager (AGM), South Western Railway, Hubballi, said, “Railways will be introducing three more weekly Humsafar trains before March, two of which will originate within Bangalore Division.
The operation of trains though will fall under the jurisdiction of different railway zones and not the South Western Railway. The Humsafar trains offer additional comfort for passenger.”
The Kamakhya-Bengaluru Cantonment Weekly Humsafar Express was launched on December 25 from Kamakhya (Assam) and commenced regular operations from Bangalore Cantonment from December 30.
The new Humsafar trains will be introduced to Bhuvaneshwar from Krishnarajapuram, to Howrah from Yesvantpur and to Tiruchirapalli from Sriganganagar (Rajasthan), said Soin. The Hamsafar category of trains were announced by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on August 17 last year.
Elaborating on its features, divisional railway manager, Bengaluru Division, Sanjiv Agarwal, said, “The trains will have an LED display board and coaches will have sensors to detect smoke and fire. The coaches are disabled-friendly with Braille display.” Bio-toilets, vending machines that can give tea, coffee and soup and newly designed dustbins are other features, he said.
In addition to that, Uday Express (double-decker train) from KSR station to Coimbatore will also be launched. The train will leave Coimbatore at 5.45am and reach KSR station at 12.35 pm. In the return direction, it will leave KSR at 2.15 pm and reach Coimbatore at 9 pm. It will run on all days except Monday. This will only be the second double decker from Bengaluru. One such train runs to Chennai daily.

There is no use for Karnataka public, as these are not running via any of the location in the‌‌ state. If rlys are really interested in welfare of Karnataka, they should run trains from SBC to Mumbai/ Ahmedabad via UBL, MYS to Goa via Hassan, Udupi, Goa to Hyderabad via UBL, BJP, GR, MYS to hyb via BAY, RC. Else only eyewash.

with the task of installation of Wi-Fi facility at 400 stations across the country in collaboration with Google, under the Digital India initiative of the Union government.
Presently, free Wi-Fi is available at KRS Bengaluru City, Yeshwantpur, Mysuru, Hubballi, Mangaluru Central, and Kalaburagi stations through RailTel. Belagavi station has got the facility under the MPLAD scheme. With each access point covering up to 40 metres, all platforms, passenger concourse and entrance of the stations are covered, according to South Western Railway’s chief public relations officer E. Vijaya.
In 2017–18, the Railways would provide the facility at Vijayapura, Ballari, Dharwad, Hosapete, and Vasco da Gama (Goa) stations in Hubballi division; Bengaluru Cantonment (to be commissioned shortly), Bangarpet, Kengeri, Krishnarajapuram, and Sri Satya Sai Prasanti Nilayam stations in Bengaluru division; Davangere and Shivamogga Town in Mysuru division, and Mangaluru Junction station in Palakkad division of Southern Railway.
Seventeen more stations would be covered in the next financial year. They are Bagalkot, Gadag, Koppal, Londa, and Toranagallu in Hubballi division; Banaswadi, Hindupur, Hosur, Mandya, Tumakuru, and Yelahanka in Bengaluru division, and Arsikere, Birur, Bhadravathi, Harihar, Haveri and Hassan in Mysuru division.
One can get Internet access with speeds up to 1 Mbps for upload and 3 Mbps for download for the first 30 minutes. Subsequently, the speed reduces to 64 Kbps, but, one could access railway-related sites through WiFi for information such as PNR, and train inquiry, throughout the day.
