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.

TRAIN KI BAAT
Varsha K Iyer
Environmentalist
I think it has a great advantage when it comes to travelling to places like Whiitefield and KR Puram. Getting stuck in traffic is really a pain especially if you are driving yourself. It will be very convenient if we have local trains running in full flow. At a time when the city is rapidly growing, I think local trains are time-driven and I personally would choose it over any other mode of transport unless I’m travelling with family.
Sathya Sankaran
Founder of Praja Raag
Local trains are very important as they comes under heavy rail. The advantage of heavy rail is that it can carry more people. Laying a surface for a local train is cheaper compared to any other mode of transport. There are a lot of suburban places near railway tracks and that makes it easier to connect to old towns in and around Bengaluru.
Mohammed Tauheed ur Rahman
Marketing executive
Local trains are less time-consuming. It is really useful when you have to reach somewhere in less time. Taking the roads on weekdays becomes such a hectic task that it really helps if you have a proper working local railway. I travel once a week to Mysuru and I think local trains make it really easy. The only concern as of now is the frequency of trains in the evenings.
Sujith Deshpande
Volunteer for CfB
The first and biggest advantage of local trains is that it reduces travel time. Then, you need not cut trees and and cause an environmental hazard if you increase the number of trains. The advantage it has over every other mode of transport is that it is very cheap. You can travel to your destination in 10 or 15 rupees.
Nivedita BR
I think local trains would help commuters in more ways than one. Given the current condition of traffic of Bengaluru, local trains would help save a lot of time for commuters. If the local train connectivity could be increased, it would probably be the most used mode of transport.

The call for a suburban railway service for Bengaluru has grown louder, with residents demanding the introduction of a well-connected railway network to ease the traffic woes of the city. Bengaluru is the only major metropolitan city that has no dedicated rail-based mass transit system.
The state government’s proposal to implement the suburban railway service has not translated into reality. Commuters are forced to travel in crowded long-distance trains and a skeletal local train service from Bangarpet, Tumakuru and Mandya to reach places within the city. The citizens’ demand is that the available railway infrastructure be utilised efficiently to implement the suburban rail network.
However,
...

the draft policy on Suburban Rail System released by the Centre recently states that the existing railway infrastructure cannot be utilised to run suburban services as it would affect the services of long-distance and freight trains.
A South Western Railway (SWR) official, who preferred to be anonymous, contends that the city railway station is too congested to run new trains. “It is impossible to run additional suburban services with the infrastructure available,” he says.
SWR, he informs, has submitted a proposal to the state government to facilitate doubling of the line between Yeshwantpur and Hosur and introduce an additional line between Bengaluru and Bangarpet. Another proposal for implementation of automatic signalling has also been submitted. “Only then can suburban services be introduced,” the official notes.
The need of the hour, he says, are new terminals such as the one proposed at Baiyappanahalli. This should be constructed at the earliest to help decongest the city railway station. Also, switching from conventional to mainline electrical multiple unit (MEMU) coaches can help in enhancement of train capacity, he opines.
One solution offered to deal with the congestion of the city railway station is to terminate trains coming in from suburban areas of Yeshwantpur, Kengeri and Baiyappanahalli and have the commuters switch to Metro trains.
However, many passengers do not see merit in this option. Says Ramanna, a superintendent at a city college, “Switching between different modes of transport can be very difficult for daily commuters. Not only is it time consuming, but is also very expensive.”
People who commute between Bengaluru and the suburbs use railway passes. “If they are asked to take the Metro from points where trains terminate, they will have to spend more money purchasing Metro passes.” He points out that commuting from the railway terminals to the Metro stations is yet another difficult proposition in the absence of adequate shuttle facilities.
Increasing the frequency of trains to suburbs can help people from all walks of life, he believes.
If train services can be increased in the peak hours, it can help thousands of passengers, unlike the Metro which has a diminished capacity, many passengers say.
However, Balaji Chitra Ganesan, a research engineer at IBM, has a different take on the matter. “One solution to decongest the city railway station could be to stop long-distance trains at terminals short of the central station. Such a precedent exists in Paris where none of the three major railway stations are in the city centre. Commuters can then switch to the Metro,” he says.
Ganesan is of the opinion that the clamour for the suburban railway service stems from the citizens’ frustration with the delay in implementing the Metro rail. Once a full-fledged Metro network is developed, it can solve many of the city’s traffic problems, he says.
The hurdles to the implementation of a suburban railway network in Bengaluru are many. However, it can happen only if a viable solution for decongesting the city railway station is arrived at.

With the kind of political expediency and departmentalism prevalent in IR, it is difficult to expect justice. There is no unified policies and every thing is at disposal of political & bureaucratic Masters.
On one hand IR is bearing losses in thousands of crores on Kolkata Metro and undertaking its expansion projects of about 30000-50000 crores, others cities are struggling to get much smaller favours.

Strategically located railway terminals should be planned for major Indian Cities in line with the ones planned for Delhi. This will ease railway operation, optimise line capacity and at the same time can facilitate Commuters.

Completing the ROB in the outer of YPR which has been pending for years.. will help plan something in terms of infrastructure like adding parking lines and pitlines.
Once the new terminal comes up at BYPL... few long distance trains can be terminated here and connectivity from this terminal to the existing stations as well as bus connectivity to all city areas should be improved... if this is done.. operation of sub urban rail will become much easier in the main routes like SBC to Whitefield, Whitefied to Dodballapur, Whitefield to YPR

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.

For lakhs of Bengalureans desperately seeking an escape route from the hyper-congested city roads, a full-fledged commuter rail system continues to be a distant dream. But small steps such as the recently opened Hoodi halt station are reminders that a local train network is the only way out.
Despite grumblings over its location, the halt station is proof that collective people's campaign could potentially help build a sustainable suburban network for the city in the future.
Thousands of IT professionals and labourers are already benefited by the halt station, located between the KR
...

Puram and Whitefield stations. They now have two raised platforms and ticket counter, a far cry from the unauthorised halt point at the Whitefield Panel Cabin.
Long-distance trains
But in the absence of dedicated local trains apart from a very skeletal service, passengers still depend on long-distance trains. They know the road route cannot be an option if the aim is to reach their homes in Malleswaram, Vijayanagar or Kengeri in the shortest possible time from the IT hub Whitefield.
Eight trains to the city and eight heading outwards currently halt at the station. For Girish Ramaiah, who works in Unilever at the ITPL tech park four km from the station, the switch to train has drastically reduced his commute time. “Earlier, I used to spend two and a half hours on the road to reach my Malleswaram house. Now it is less than an hour,” he says.
Peak hour commute by road is a nightmare. After work, if a professional from ITPL is lucky enough to negotiate the clogged Hoodi junction and ITPL main road, a mammoth congestion awaits at the KR Puram junction. The chaos is matched only by the perennial jams at Kundanahalli and Marathahalli.
The rail option allows ITPL employees to completely bypass these notorious traffic bottlenecks. Boarding the available trains at the halt station, many alight at Baiyappanahalli to take the Metro. Many others proceed on the passenger trains to the city railway station.
Rationalise timings
The shift from road to rail will be dramatic even if a skeletal service of dedicated local trains is introduced with schedules in tune with office timings. This, assert several passengers on the route, should make a huge difference during the morning and evening peak hours.
Mallikarjun C G, a resident of Kengeri, commutes daily to ITPL. He explains how more frequent trains can help him reach home faster. “If I leave my office at 5.30 pm and catch a train by 5.55 pm, I can reach city railway station before 7 pm. The Mysuru train that leaves city at 7 pm will be ideal for me to reach Kengeri. But now, the Arakkonam passenger I get reaches the city station only at 7.15 pm.”
Last month, the South Western Railway introduced a Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) service between Bangarpet and Baiyappanahalli. The objective was to mainly help the IT crowd in Whitefield shift to the Metro at Baiyappanahalli.
The MEMU, with its eight coaches, can take up to 1,600 passengers. The plan was good, but there was a big scheduling flaw. The train leaves Bangarpet at 3.55 pm, reaching Baiyappanahalli at 5.10 pm. But most IT companies in ITPL and other Whitefield locations close only at 5.00 or 5.30 pm. It passes the critical Hoodi halt station at 4.50 pm, too early for the IT crowd.
Similar issues plague the Ramanagaram-City services as well. The arrival and departure times at key stations bypass the crucial office closure hours, minimising the benefit for the workforce.
Increase frequency
However, all these problems will disappear if the frequency of dedicated local trains is increased, contends Roopa Dave, an IT professional from Whitefield.
“A lot of people are forced to take long-distance trains that end up halting abruptly for crossings. They are not dependable,” she says.
But Roopa has another problem, articulated by many others who find the new Hoodi halt station’s location too far from their workplace. Roopa has her office right inside the Prestige Shantiniketan, a stone’s throwaway from the spot where trains used to stop before the new station came up.
The Railways and Bengaluru Central MP P C Mohan, who donated Rs 2.87 crore from his MPLAD fund for the Hoodi halt station, however preferred the new location for its better road connectivity.
More halt stations
Yet, the station has made a big difference for commuters. Now, imagine the cascading benefits of a city-wide network of such stations. For instance, a station on the Devanahalli-Chikkaballapur line near the Airport Trumpet flyover could benefit thousands of commuters to the Kempegowda International Airport and nearby areas.
A halt station at Munekollela on the Hosur line can help commuters bound for Electronics City and beyond. Only six km separate the Heelalige station and Electronics City, a distance that can be easily bridged through dedicated shuttle bus services. On the Baiyappanahalli-Yeshwantpur line, halts at Varthur Road and Chandapur Road can give commuters a viable and faster connect to workplaces at Manyata Tech Park. This could decongest the Outer Ring Road stretch.

A railway halt station can work efficiently only if there is good last-mile connectivity. For the IT crowd, the distance between the Hoodi station and ITPL is much more than a mile. Implication: They have to depend on BMTC buses or autorickshaws.
Currently, a BMTC shuttle service runs from ITPL bus bay at 4 pm to reach in time for the Bangarpet-KSR Bengaluru DEMU train. The train arrives at the Hoodi station at 4.32 pm. However, this service is unavailable for the big crowd headed to the station after IT offices close at 5.30 pm.
Rail commuters have suggested a BMTC circular bus service to pick up people from multiple locations and get to the halt station. One route on their agenda goes from Hoodi Station to Hope Farm, proceeding to Varthur Kodi, Kundanahalli Gate and back to the halt station.
Autorickshaws are available at the halt station. But they charge a premium to even get to the Hoodi Junction, about 500 metres away. When trains used to stop near Prestige Shantiniketan, many IT employees had arranged their own shuttle bus services. That is yet to take off at the new station.
NEED: FULL-FLEDGED SUBURBAN NETWORK
Bengaluru needs a full-fledged suburban rail network and not half measures, say most commuters who prefer rail travel to the congested roads. The move to link long-distance and the skeletal local train services to the Metro, they say, is flawed.
Here’s why: The local DEMU, MEMU and other trains run by the railways carry thousands of passengers. This service cannot be replaced by Metro trains that are more expensive and carry much fewer commuters.
A MEMU train from Bangarpet to Baiyappanahalli has already been introduced. But passengers wonder why they are forced to shift to the Metro at Baiyappanahalli instead of heading straight to Bangalore East, Cantonment and City Railway Stations by the same train.
However, the switchover will benefit those heading towards Indiranagar, Halasuru, MG Road and other inner city areas. Once the Metro Green Line is fully integrated to the Purple Line, commuters from Whitefield could get to Jayanagar, JP Nagar and other locations in the south of the city.
BENEFIT FOR 40% URBAN COMMUTERS
Forty per cent of Bengaluru’s urban commuters will switch over to commuter rail, dramatically decongesting the city roads. How can this happen?
By introducing a full-fledged suburban system covering 440 km and integrating it with the Metro and BMTC services, according to Sanjeev Dyamannavar, an urban rail analyst.
This, he says, can happen if 266 round trips are introduced in all the routes that connect Bengaluru with Chikkaballapur, Kolar, Doddaballapur, Tumakuru, Nelamangala, Hosur and Ramanagaram.

Agree, with pressure we can bring CRS in Bluru. This is main point in upcoming elections and to decongest capital.

Traffic congestion is a major complaint of most Bengalureans. Everyday commute to work is no less than a Herculean task for most. Is suburban rail network then a possible solution to the traffic chaos in the city? We asked citizens who endure the daily traffic ordeal to make their choice.
Here’s Sriharsha D V, a software engineer, who finds travelling by train cheaper and faster. He has been advocating train travel for long, urging people to do the same. He travels daily by train to his workplace and believes that there is a need to popularise the trains. According to him, “The only way to do it would be to flock the trains, increase the number of travellers. The current consumption of
...
more...
existing services is way less than the capacity of the coaches.”
Agreeing with this view is Suhas N, a mobility consultant. As someone who usually finds himself on the road for more than three hours a day, he talks about leveraging the available railway infrastructure to efficiently utilise the suburban rail network, instead of flyovers or other projects.
Suhas explains, “The railway stations at Nayandahalli/Kengeri, Majestic, Hebbal, Yelahanka, Hoodi and Whitefield can be connected with existing tracks and this will reduce much of the burden on the roads. This is a cost-effective solution compared to the Metro.”
Daily commuters on NICE Road Rajesh Chillappagari and Krishna, both engineers, feel suburban rail network should be the right option as it helps reduce the density of vehicles on the roads. An eco-friendly initiative, it is economical for long-distance travel, they say.
Another commuter, Manoj, who is an aerospace engineer, prefers a battery-operated railway network in Bengaluru. “The batteries could be recharged using solar energy. This will be efficient and can take us a long way. There are trains running on electricity in other Metro cities,” he says.
A Metro-linked commuter railway network is another possible solution to ease traffic gridlocks. Many suggest this linkage to ease traffic hurdles.
Shripathy Hadigal, a travel photographer, feels that “the capabilities of intra-city trains have been ignored.” He sees a need for meticulous planning in utilisation of the limited facilities available. “One train that could carry hundreds of people from the centre of the city to Kengeri can result in several vehicles getting off the Mysuru Road. The journey that takes hours will drastically come down to a few minutes.”
Vouching for an inter-modal transport system, Hadigal says, “If a rail network is planned in tandem with the Metro, certainly every over-ambitious, ill-planned flyover and road-widening project can be stopped.”
Arathy B, head of customer relations at a private firm, welcomes any public transport plan that might reduce the commute time. “Having a Metro connection between Vijayanagar and Electronics City and Hosur Road would actually bring down my travel time to only half an hour from two hours,” she says.
Supporting the suburban railway network initiative, she looks at it as a way to lead a healthy, stress-free life.
On the other hand, Krishna Hathwar, a lead engineer who spends three hours in traffic every day, opines that the Metro is a better alternative for Bengaluru. The city, he contends, has grown too big to accommodate a suburban railway system.
Karthik Bhat travels to ITPB, Whitefield on work from Bull Temple Road, spending two to three hours on the road.
He says, “The Metro service which has been provided only till Baiyappanahalli should have been extended at least till Tin Factory and ITPL.”
Bhat says transportation planning should have been done keeping in mind the long-term effects.
In the current situation —where the roads are almost always chock-a-block with traffic — the need of the hour is to arrive at a long-term, efficient plan and execute it cautiously. Suburban rail network is seen as a cost-effective, eco-friendly solution which could be linked with Metro to ease stressful commute around the city.

The Mysuru-Varanasi Express is set to become the country’s first visually-challenged friendly train when it chugs off from the city on Tuesday.
The bi-weekly express Train Number 16229/16230 which leaves Mysuru for Varanasi on Tuesdays and Thursdays, has been provided with metallic Braille signages inside the coaches indicating the berth numbers, location of alarm pull chains, toilets and emergency windows. The Braille signage also has instructions on the

operation of emergency exit windows for the use of visually challenged in times of any exigency. The initiative was financed by Pratap Simha, Mysuru MP, from the MPLAD Fund. Mr. Simha inaugurated and inaugurated by him on Monday.
Though the Puri-Delhi Purushottam Express was the first train in the country to have a Braille-embedded coach, the Mysuru-Varanasi Express is the first train in the country where all reserved coaches have been embedded with Braille signage, said Rajkumar Lal, Divisional Railway Manager, Mysuru division of the South Western Railways.
“The plan is to extend the facility to all the reserved coaches of long-distance trains in a phase-wise manner,” he added. Braille signage has been introduced on one rake of the Mysuru-Varanasi Express and the facility will be provided for the second rake of the same train as well. The Chamundi Express and the Mysuru-Talguppa Express are other two trains that will be provided with Braille signages after this, said Mr.Lal.
The Mysuru Division, which operates 118 trains, has plans for such signages for all long-distance and express trains.
Ms. Netravati, a visually-impaired person, welcomed the initiative and said that it will help them identify the seats or berths without seeking help from others. “We will be more independent and at times people do not respond properly as they to tend to be in a hurry to locate their berths,” said Netravati.
However, the coach numbers have conventional signage and the plan is to affix Braille signage for the coaches as well, said officials.

The process of finalising the wish list for inclusion in the Railway Budget 2016-17 has begun and the Mysuru Division is expected to submit its demand for new services and projects this month.
Stakeholders have reiterated that, consequent to the completion of the track doubling between Mysuru and Bengaluru, some of their long-pending demands should be met.
The Federation of Karnataka Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FKKCI) has sought additional connectivity to Mumbai and Ahmedabad – two major commercial centres – in a bid to boost business.
The
...
more...
extension of Bengaluru-Mumbai Udayan Express to Mysuru is one of the key demands which has been pending for the last few years. Sources said the prospects were bright this year as the line capacity has been augmented.
Sudhakar Shetty, representative of FKCCI and a member of the Divisional Level Railway Users Consultative Committee, said new services between Mysuru and Bengaluru was a top priority. “To start with, we need an additional train before or after the departure of Chamundi Express from Mysuru and also from Bengaluru in view of the heavy passenger rush,” he said.
There are plans to extend the Kochiveli-Bengaluru express – which originates from Thiruvananthapuram – up to Mysuru, while another service between Kacheguda to Bengaluru, may also be extended up to Mysuru. Besides, an additional weekly night service to Tirupathi is in the pipeline.
The demand for increasing the frequency of Mysuru-Mumbai Sharavathi Express is pending, as also an inter-city super fast express train connecting Mysuru with Hubbali. The Mysuru-Dharwad Express provides direct connectivity but FKCCI said there was potential for another service. The route from Mysuru to Hubbali connects important commercial centres like Arsikere, Davanagere, Harihar, Rannebennur and Haveri.
Direct train to Goa
The other services sought include a direct train to Goa, to provide a direct link to two important tourist destinations. The direct links to some of the commercial centres of central and north Karnataka is reckoned to be important, as an inland container depot for exports will be established at Mysuru (near Nanjangud).
This will be established by the Container Corporation of India and is posed to be the second such facility after Whitefield. A direct link connecting commercial centres will make the container facility more viable.

With track doubling work on the Mysuru-Bengaluru section completed, the public have been demanding additional trains between the two cities.
The Mysore Grahakara Parishat (MGP) has launched a postcard campaign pressing for additional services and more than 600 post cards have been sent to the local MP, Pratap Simha. Another 400 cards will be despatched shortly. MGP volunteers have travelled in trains between Mysuru and Bengaluru to collect signatures of commuters for the purpose.N.S. Pradeep Kumar and S. Yogendra of the parishat have said that the completion of the project has augmented the line capacity by 50 per cent and it was time for the railway authorities to introduce additional services between Mysuru and Bengaluru.
“People

of Mysuru want a train from Bengaluru to Mysuru between 5 p.m. and 5.30 p.m. to reduce the load of Chamundi Express which was running with more than 200 per cent of its passenger capacity,” said Mr. Kumar and Mr. Yogendra.
This is a long-pending demand and the MGP has submitted representations to Mysuru Division and South Western Railway headquarters at Hubballi, apart from elected representatives of the region. The issue was also raised by Sudhakar Shetty at the Divisional Railway Users Consultative Committee meeting held recently , they added.
Meanwhile, a railway official said that further to commissioning of services on the newly-laid track, the running time of the trains may be progressively reduced. The Commissioner for Railway Safety (CRS) has cleared the Naganahalli-Yeliyuru section for a maximum speed of 90 km per hour and the speed limit would be adhered to which will help reduce running time. With the Railway Budget for 2016-17 to be tabled in February, fresh proposals from the division will also be submitted to the Railway Board for consideration and additional trains may be sanctioned in view of the completion of track doubling, the official said.
