Members of Whitefield Area Commerce and Industries Association (WACIA) have urged the government to take up suburban railway connectivity from Banavara to Whitefield, via Yeshwantpur and Krishnarajapuram under Phase 1.
They said this would enable carrying the regular workforce from North-West to the Eastern part of the city including Whitefield.
The association demanded at the ‘CEO Conclave 2017’, that a committee comprising Bescom, BMRCL, BBMP, KIADB officials and traffic police be formed to oversee the progress of Metro Phase II works from Baiyappanhalli to Whitefield.

also urged the authorities to set up a Whitefield Area Development Authority, to look into the implementation of the government’s civic schemes and focus on improving ‘Safe City’ measures. Also, they urged the government to set up mini bus terminals at vantage points of the city to ease traffic. “If mini bus terminals are set up at Mehkri Circle, Krishnarajapuram, Jayanagar and Vijayanagar, those bound for the airport, can avoid taking cabs, which are the main reason for traffic congestion on airport road,” said S Pandu Rao, chairman of WACIA Vision Group.
Mahendra Jain, additional chief secretary, said the state and the Centre would contribute 20% each for the suburban rail project and the rest would be borrowed from banks. “An MoU has been signed,” he said.
He said work on the peripheral ring road was in progress and will be completed on priority. This, he said would decongest the city to a great extent, as heavy inter-city vehicles would be diverted to the ring road.

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.

BENGALURU: To make good for the delay in introduction of a suburban rail service, the Bangalore Railway Division recently announced a list of trains to partially cover a segment of the proposed suburban route. In this connection, two Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) services to Whitefield will be run at timings convenient to IT professionals from January 17.
According to railway sources, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will be coming to the city to flag off these services along with three services from here to Ramanagara on January 16. “The trains will be flagged off on January 16 evening and will run a short trip. The actual commercial run will begin the next morning (January 17),” they said.
One

of the services will run exclusively to Whitefield while the second service will stop at Whitefield enroute Kuppam. Three pairs of trains to Ramanagara, two of them evening trains, will also be launched on that day.
The MEMU to Whitefield will leave Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna railway station at 8.45 am and reach Whitefield at 9.40 am. In the return direction, it will leave Whitefield at 10.30 am and reach KSR at 11.10 am. The second train will leave KSR at 11.20 am and reach Kuppam at 1.45 pm. It will leave Kuppam at 2.45 pm and return to KSR at 5.20 pm. The trains will stop at Cantonment, Bengaluru East, Baiyappanahalli, KR Puram and Hoodi stations in both directions.
“With the Suburban Draft Policy making the state government solely responsible for putting in place a suburban network and calling for new infrastructure solely for suburban trains, Railways is now relived of playing the key role in putting in place the suburban service,” added a railway official.
The services between KSR and Ramanagara will have stops at Nayandahalli, Kengeri, Hejjala and Bidadi.
The timings of the proposed morning service is as follows: leave KSR at 5.20 am and reach Ramanagara at 6.15 am; In the return direction, leave Ramanagaram at 7 am and KSR at 8.40 am.

South-Western Railways (SWR) is all set to run a morning train service from Majestic to Whitefield in Bengaluru.
The train that starts from Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna (Bengaluru City) station at Majestic at 8 45 am will reach Whitefield in less than an hour’s time, reports The Times of India.
The train service between Ramanagara and Bengaluru will be extended to make this possible in a month’s time.

first train from Bengaluru to Ramanagara departs at 5 20 am, that returns to Bengaluru City at 8 45 am. This service will be further extended to Whitefield and will return back to Bengaluru city at 11.10 am.
The decision comes days after a citizen forum Citizens for Bengaluru (CfB) launched a campaign “Chuku Buku Beku” demanding a well-connected suburban local train network in the city.
The campaign on Saturday saw many citizens take a rail yatra from Cantonment station to Whitefiled in KSR-Bangarpet MEMU, to highlight the necessity of local trains. A day after this, Union Minister Ananth Kumar assured that development works will be taken up soon.
The new train service is extended to decongest the city, of the heavy traffic in the peak hours of morning.
“This will help ease peak-hour traffic and benefit many who travel to Whitefield,” Sanjiv Agarwal, division railway manager of Bengaluru division, SWR, told TOI. He added that the train will halt at Cantonment, Bengaluru east, Byappanahalli, KR Puram and Hoodi stations.

With little work done on the commuter rail project announced by the Railways in the current rail budget, Bengaluru’s citizens, fed up with the constant traffic gridlock and the snail-paced progress of the Metrorail, have started a public movement to hasten the suburban rail system.
The movement, Chuku Buku Railu Beku (a child’s phrase for a train in Kannada), has asked people on social media to board the Bangalore-Bangarpet train on December 17 that starts at 9 am at City Railway Station and travel in it till Whitefield, a city suburb, picking up supporters on the way at every halt.
Though

urban transport is a state subject, the union railway minister, Suresh Prabhu, had announced in the current budget that the city would get a commuter rail system, with the state government sharing cost equally with the Centre.
According to the Railways, unless three pit lines and a coaching depot are constructed at Byappanahalli yard, suburban trains cannot be operated, as all tracks leading out of Bengaluru are saturated. Once completed, this depot would enable long-distance trains to be parked and serviced here and reduce congestion at the City and Yeswanthpur stations, thereby making way for a commuter rail system. However, work on the third pit line has come to a halt with the Karnataka government not releasing its share of the funds yet.
Speaking to YourStory, Srinivas Alavalli, a proactive member from Citizens against Steel Flyover, says,
The agenda is to replicate a movement like the one against the steel flyover. We have volunteers joining at every station en route. The 35-minute ride has many well known Bengaloreans joining in, including music director Raghu Dixit.
A RITES study had projected that a suburban rail network around Bengaluru could easily carry up to 35 lakh passengers per day.
Such a system would take a lot of pressure off the city’s roads, which are choking with more than 65 lakh vehicles for a population of just one crore.
The Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC), which operates 6,700 city buses, carries 51 lakh commuters every day, according to Ramalinga Reddy, state transport minister. Any more addition of buses would lead to more congestion and pollution.
The city’s Namma Metro currently carries nearly two lakh commuters a day, and once the entire Phase I network is ready early next year, it is expected to carry up to five lakh passengers. The extensions to the Metro from Byappanahalli to Whitefield, the tech hub, will be ready only by 2020. The Outer Ring Road Metrorail corridor is expected to carry more than 10 lakh users per day, but this proposal is yet to be cleared by the state cabinet.
“It is sad that the state government has not released a small amount needed for a suburban rail project that will benefit all of Bengaluru while it is pushing full steam ahead with the steel flyover between Chalukya Circle and Hebbal, which is costing in excess of Rs 1,800 crore for just 6.7 km. An extension planned at the Hebbal end will again increase the cost by Rs 400 crore or so,” says Alavalli.
“A suburban railway fills the gap till the Metro becomes fully operational, and moreover, it can be used to take the pressure off the roads as there are railway tracks leading out of Bengaluru in every direction except the south. The state government should immediately establish a Special Project Vehicle (SPV) on the lines of the Mumbai Rail Vikas Nigam and appoint a managing director for this project. The SPV will plan how many diesel or electric rakes are required, upgrade the signalling network, and plan routes and frequencies,” says Bengaluru Central Lok Sabha MP P.C. Mohan.
A railway officer concurs, saying that the SPV could look into even creating additional lines that could eventually lead to dedicated suburban lines like those in Mumbai and Chennai.
Mohan is the first MP in the country to use his MPLAD funds, worth Rs 2.74 crore, to build a railway station and other facilities at Hoodi halt, used by techies and students who travel by inter-city or long-distance trains.
“As people used to get down along the tracks near Hoodi and hop on and off passing trains, after requests from travellers, we planned a proper halt and station building, along with an approach road. The Hoodi station (between KR Puram and Whitefield) already caters to more than 2,000 passengers, and in the future will be part of the planned commuter rail system for Bengaluru,” he says.
When asked if the CSF had shifted its focus from the Steel Flyover to the suburban train, Alavalli says,
The focus has shifted from `say no to steel flyover’ to ` say yes to suburban rail’. We are very confident of leaving a positive impact.
The team has also initiated a tweet-a-thon, starting December 15 night.
“The state government should play the role of a catalyst here and use railway lines, which are a national asset, to start a dedicated commuter rail service connecting various parts of the city as well as satellite towns, including those up to 100 km away,” says an activist.
Railway tracks originating from City Station extend towards the nearby towns of Tumkur, Doddaballapur, Chikkaballapur, Bangarpet, Hosur and Mysore.
With another railway budget coming up in a few weeks, the state government has already lost precious time. One only hopes an SPV is started so that Bengalureans can get an alternative mode of public transport and reduce their dependency on two and four wheelers.

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.

Volunteers of Citizens for Bengaluru (CfB) will carry out a ‘Chuku Buku Railu Beku’ awareness campaign on December 17, demanding a commuter train network for the city.
They will board the 9 am train to Bangarpet at the Bengaluru City railway station. The train stops at Bengaluru Cantonment, Bengaluru East, Baiyappanahalli, KR Puram, Hoody and Whitefield stations, Srinivas Alavilli, member, CfB, told reporters on Friday. Many college students and noted musician Raghu Dixit will take part, he added.
Bengaluru has around 40 railway stations and 140 km of tracks that should be adequately

used by the government. Not many people, including government officials, are aware of the network’s potential, said a CfB volunteer.
Actor Prakash Belawadi said the proposal to build a commuter rail network in Bengaluru was first mooted 32 years ago but nothing came out of it. He said suburban trains could substantially reduce private vehicles and bring down pollution. Instead of constructing a steel flyover at a cost of Rs 1,800 crore, the government can spend the amount on building a commuter train network in Bengaluru, he added.
K N Krishna Prasad, convener of Bengaluru Suburban Rail Passengers’ Forum, said Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad and Pune all had suburban rail systems. In Mumbai, around 75 lakh people depend on the suburban rail for their daily commute. According to him, building a suburban train network would not cost much. By spending just Rs 300 crore, the suburban rail system can be introduced in Bengaluru in six months, he suggested.
In the evening, CfB volunteers organised a freeze mob demonstration to promote the suburban rail network option and gather votes against the steel flyover project. For nearly half an hour, 20 volunteers became statues at various locations on MG Road to explain to people the need for a commuter rail network and invite them to the awareness campaign on December 17.

ఈనాడు-అమరావతి:బెంగళూరు(యశ్వంత్‌పూర్‌)- విశాఖపట్నం మధ్య రెండు నెలల కిందట ప్రవేశపెట్టిన వీక్లీ ఎక్స్‌ప్రెస్‌ను రోజువారీ రైలుగా మార్చాలని కేంద్ర పట్టణాభివృద్ధి శాఖ మంత్రి ఎం.వెంకయ్యనాయుడు కోరారు. ఈ మేరకు రైల్వే మంత్రి సురేష్‌ప్రభుకు లేఖ రాశారు. దీనిపై రైల్వేబోర్డు, నైరుతి (సౌత్‌వెస్ట్రర్న్‌ జోన్‌) రైల్వే అధికారులు వెనువెంటనే స్పందించారు. బెంగళూరు నుంచి విశాఖపట్నం వరకు నడుపుతున్న వీక్లీ (స్పెషల్‌) ఎక్స్‌ప్రెస్‌ రైలుకు ప్రయాణికుల రద్దీ ఎక్కువగా ఉందని, దీని రెగ్యులర్‌ కోసం రైల్వే బోర్డుకు సిఫారసు చేయాలని కర్ణాటకలోని హుబ్బళ్లి కేంద్రంగా ఉన్న నైరుతి రైల్వేజోన్‌ నిర్ణయించింది. ఈ మేరకు బోర్డుకు సోమవారం నివేదించినట్లు విశ్వసనీయంగా తెలిసింది. ఈ ప్రత్యేక రైలు విషయంలో మొదటినుంచి ఆటంకాలు కల్పిస్తున్న ఈస్ట్‌కోస్ట్‌ రైల్వేజోన్‌.. విశాఖ నుంచి తిరుగు ప్రయాణంలో డైనమిక్‌ ఛార్జీలతో ప్రయాణికులపై భారం మోపుతోంది. విశాఖ నుంచి బెంగళూరుకు నిత్యం నాలుగు విమానాలు ఉండటం, ఇదే సమయంలో రైలు ప్రయాణికుల సమస్యలను గుర్తించిన వెంకయ్య బెంగళూరు-విశాఖ ప్రత్యేక రైలుపై స్పందించి ప్రతిరోజూ నడపాలని సురేష్‌ప్రభుకు లేఖ రాశారు.

ఈనాడు - అమరావతి: వారానికి ఒకసారి నడిచే బెంగళూరు-విశాఖపట్నం ఎక్స్‌ప్రెస్‌ పట్టాలు ఎక్కినా ప్రయాణికులకు మరో సమస్య వచ్చి పడింది. దేశంలో ఎక్కడా లేనివిధంగా ఈ రైలుకు రెండురకాల ఛార్జీల విధానం అమల్లోకి వచ్చింది. బెంగళూరు నుంచి విశాఖపట్నం వరకు తత్కాల్‌ ఛార్జీలు వసూలు చేస్తుండగా.. విశాఖపట్నం నుంచి బెంగళూరుకు డైనమిక్‌ (సువిధ రైలు)ఛార్జీలు అమల్లోకి వచ్చాయి. దీంతో తిరుగుప్రయాణంలో ప్రయాణికులు రెట్టింపు ఛార్జీలు చెల్లించాల్సి వస్తోంది. ఈ రైలును నడిపే విషయంలో తొలి నుంచి పేచీ పెడుతూ వచ్చిన తూర్పుకోస్తా (ఈస్ట్‌కోస్ట్‌) రైల్వే జోన్‌ ఆఖరి నిమిషంలో వెనక్కి తగ్గినట్టేతగ్గి ప్రయాణికులపై భారం మోపింది.
బెంగళూరు-విశాఖపట్నంల మధ్య రద్దీని దృష్టిలో పెట్టుకుని నైరుతి రైల్వే(సౌత్‌వెస్ట్రర్న్‌) చొరవ తీసుకుని వీక్లీ(వారానికి ఒక రోజు) ప్రత్యేక రైలు ప్రవేశపెట్టింది. రెండు, మూడునెలల తిరిగాక ప్రయాణికుల నుంచి డిమాండ్‌ను వివరిస్తూ రెగ్యులర్‌ రైలుగా బోర్డుకు ప్రతిపాదించాలని అనుకుంది. ప్రస్తుతానికి ఈ రైల్లో తత్కాల్‌ ఛార్జీలు వసూలు చేయాలని నిర్ణయించింది. ఇదే విషయాన్ని ఈ రైలు ప్రయాణించే మార్గంలోని ఇతర జోన్లకూ సమాచారం పంపింది. రెగ్యులర్‌ రైళ్ల కంటే తత్కాల్‌ రైల్వే ఛార్జీ విశాఖ వరకు
...
more...
స్లీపర్‌క్లాస్‌లో రూ. 110 అధికంగా ఉంటుంది. ఈ రైలు తిరుగుప్రయాణం మొదలయ్యే విశాఖపట్నం ఈస్ట్‌కోస్ట్‌ జోన్‌లో ఉంది. అక్కడి అధికారులు మాత్రం సువిధరైలుగా సాఫ్ట్‌వేర్‌లో నమోదుచేయించారు. దీంతో సమస్యగా మారింది.
ఛార్జీల్లో ఎంత తేడా?
సువిధ రైళ్లలో విమాన టికెట్ల తరహాలో ఛార్జీలుంటాయి. టికెట్లు అయిపోయేకొద్ది ఛార్జీ పెరుగుతూ పోతుంటుంది. మొదటి తీసుకున్నవారికంటే ఆ తర్వాత, చివర్లో తీసుకున్నవారు 50 శాతం నుంచి 200 శాతం వరకు అదనంగా చెల్లించాల్సి ఉంటుంది. ఈ రైలుకు ఆదరణ లేదన్న అభిప్రాయం కల్పించడానికే తూర్పుకోస్తా జోన్‌ సువిధ రైలుగా మార్పించిందన్న ఆరోపణలు వ్యక్తం అవుతున్నాయి.
బెంగళూరు(యశ్వంత్‌పూర్‌)-విశాఖపట్నం ఎక్స్‌ప్రెస్‌ రెండువైపులా ఛార్జీల్ని పరిశీలిస్తే..
* బెంగళూరు నుంచి విశాఖకు స్లీపర్‌ క్లాస్‌ ఛార్జీ రూ. 625.
* ఇదే రైలు విశాఖ నుంచి బెంగళూరుకు స్లీపర్‌ టికెట్‌ రూ. 1,865.
* థర్డ్‌ఏసీలో విశాఖకు రూ. 1,685.
* విశాఖ నుంచి బెంగళూరుకు ఇదే రైల్లో రూ. 3,405.
