The Centre is contemplating setting up an organisation exclusively for developing and implementing rail infrastructure projects in Bengaluru.
Union Chemical and Fertilisers Minister Ananth Kumar said on Tuesday that a proposal to set up Bengaluru Rail Infrastructure Development Enterprise (B-RIDE) was before the Railway Ministry. He was speaking after the launch of an e-book highlighting the achievements of the Chemicals and Fertilisers Ministry in the last 30 months.
“B-RIDE can focus on rail projects confined to Bengaluru on the lines of Karnataka Rail Infrastructure Development Enterprise (K-RIDE) that looks into feasibility and development of railway projects

at the state level,” Kumar said. The move could help in expediting projects like the commuter rail for Bengaluru - connecting Ramanagaram to Kengeri, Tumakuru to Yeshwantpur and Yelahanka to Doddaballapur, among others.
Ananth Kumar, who represents the Bengaluru South Parliamentary constituency, said Bengaluru commuter rail will have mainline electrical multiple units (MEMU) coaches which have a capacity of one-and-a-half times of that of regular coaches.
“A section of commuter rail in Bengaluru will be operational and running within the next few months. The aim is that Bengaluru too should have a local train network like Mumbai”, Ananth Kumar said.
Listing out the achievements of his ministry, Kumar said Karnataka had been offered 200 generic drug stores where around 600 variety of life-saving drugs and surgical materials will be made available at cheaper prices. The state has to provide space to house these stores near taluk and district government hospitals, he added.
Kumar said the Centre had directed companies to provide fertilisers to farmers on credit for the next two months to ensure adequate supply of soil nutrients for the rabi season.

Success mainly depends on the active support and participation from state govt. It would have been much better if state govt have taken lead in this matter, as the chances of success would be high in that case.

Under public pressure to start a suburban train service in Bengaluru, the South Western Railway (SWR) is likely to introduce new trains on two existing lines that connect the city centre with the suburbs.
More trains could run from Bengaluru City to Bangarpet (via Whitefield) and Ramanagaram, given the feasibility to operate the services on the two lines. The two lines have been listed under Phase A, Stage 1, of the Bengaluru suburban railway project, whose detailed project report (DPR) was prepared by RITES, a Central government-owned engineering consultancy.
“After several rounds of

discussion with the railways, it has been decided to introduce new trains on these lines on priority. This can be done faster using the existing infrastructure.
It’s also possible to add more trains on the Yeshwantpur-Tumakuru railway line,” a state government official, who oversees the city’s suburban project, told DH.
Phase A, Stage 1, entails introduction of seven new services or replacement of 15 existing conventional trains with Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) trains. This will cost Rs 360 crore and needs the approval of the state Cabinet, he noted.
“Once the state government agrees to fund the project, it will take six to eight months to procure a rake (a group of coaches) and complete the signalling work. The electric-powered trains have engines and can move in both directions without having to take a turn like conventional trains,” the official said.
An extensive suburban train project for Bengaluru has been proposed to be spread over three stages and estimated to cost Rs 9,000 crore. It involves commuter train services from Bengaluru City to Hosur (41 km), Doddaballapur (37 km), Ramanagaram (46 km), Tumakuru (64 km), Chikkaballapur (57 km), Bangarpet (84 km) and Nelamangala (27 km).
According to K N Krishna Prasad of Karnataka Railway Vedike, all lines except the Lottegollahalli-Hosur stretch (via Hebbal and Banaswadi) are doubled and electrified, which makes it easy to introduce the suburban train services.
Urban mobility analyst Sanjeev Dyamannavar, however, said more commuter trains on the two routes would be of little help unless the railways prioritised them over outbound services. “Besides conventional passenger trains, the city has three MEMU and DEMU trains each. It would be difficult for people to switch to commuter services unless the SWR increases their frequency,” he added.
