BENGALURU: Taking a major step towards monetising railway assets and upgrading passenger amenities, Indian Railways on Wednesday invited tenders for development of vacant railway land in the vicinity of 23 railway stations. This includes Bangalore Cantonment and Yeshwantpur in Bangalore Railway Division.
Briefing newspersons at the Divisional Railway Manager’s office before Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu inaugurated the ‘Station Redevelopment Programme’ (announced in this year’s Railway budget) from New Delhi through video link, General Manager of South Western Railway, A K Gupta, said a total of 22.5 acres in Bengaluru will be offered for private development.
“This

will include 20 acres located 4 km from Yeshwantpur station and 2.25 acres near Cantonment station, located along Thimmaiah Road connecting Queen’s Road,” he said.
Tenders were floated for commercial development of these places on Wednesday and the last date for accepting bids is June 1. The Swiss Challenge Method, which is more transparent than the regular tendering process, has been adopted.

“The bidder can have any commercial venture in railway land, which will be offered on a 45-year lease. Simultaneously, the two stations need to be provided with all conceivable passenger amenities and facilities so that they become iconic ventures,” he added.
Fifteen more stations in South Western Railway will be developed. These include Belagavi, Ballari, Vijayapura, Davangere, Dharwad, Hosapete, Hubballi, Krishnarajapuram, Shivamogga, Sai Prashanti Nilayam, Vasco Da Gama, Bangarpet and Bengaluru city (Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna) stations, Gupta said.
In the second phase, bids for redevelopment of 100 stations will be put out in June. In the third and final phase in December, 250-plus stations will be covered.
Suresh Prabhu, in a speech telecast live across many railway divisions, said that the space near railway stations falls under the “most valuable real estate in the country.”
“The entire Stations Redevelopment Programme was targeting `1 lakh crore to be obtained by monetising 2,200 acres of land across 100 cities across the country,” he said. Altogether 400-plus A1 and A stations would be developed.

Dharwad: Carry an umbrella if you are travelling from Dharwad Railway station this season: the station lacks shelter, and facilities like public toilets and security for passengers.
The negligent attitude of Hubballi division of South Western Railway and the elected representatives has put passengers in difficulty. Even three years after construction, platforms 4 and 5 have no shelter and other infrastructure. Passengers either have to wait in the sun or rain, or rush to platforms 2 and 3 for shelter.
Rajanish Haliyal, a regular passenger, told TOI: "I have drawn the attention of

officials to the absence of toilets in the station. But there has been no action. Sometimes, authorities permit us to use toilets in the waiting room only after an argument. Men can manage but what about women? The authorities must look into this."
Prasuramappa Randewade, a passenger, who was travelling to Alnavar, said the station does not even have a compound wall, which allows free entry to all, including miscreants. "Recently, a senior citizen was beaten by some miscreants of a nearby slum, while waiting for a train at night. The miscreants ran away on seeing some of us on the platform. The lack of a wall on one side of the station is leading to illicit activities here after dusk," he added.
Though a major station, it lacks electronic display in front of the entrance. With no roof over platforms 4 and 5, the situation is dangerous in the monsoon as passengers could slip while boarding a train, and get crushed, Randewade added.
Nirmala Shinde, a passenger, noted that though Dharwad station is located in a district headquarters, the department does not have a police outpost here.
One staffer who didn't wish to be named, said many vendors here are a law unto themselves. "If anybody asks them for their licence, they threaten us saying they have links in the station. They also attempt to assault us," he said helplessly.
Divisional railway manager AK Jain said shelter and public toilets will be provided soon. "However, we will look into the matter of providing an outpost," he added.
