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.

ECoR is fooling AP people ..
TPTY-VSKP is 08574 (Tatkal Spl)
VSKP-TPTY is 82851 (Suvidha)
82853 VSKP-VM Suvidha
08354 VM-VSKP spl Fare
Ecor is always different w.r.t VSKP.
Although the adopting suvidha mode is bad, this concept isn't new having different fares either side as reported in the article.

MPs need to take this matter up with RM
Thanks to the South Western Railway (SWR), the long-pending demand for introduction of an originating train from Vizag to Bengaluru was realised with the launch of the 06579 Yesvantapur-Visakhapatnam weekly special Tatkal express.
Though the East Coast Railway (ECoR) had failed to introduce a direct train to cater to the high demand for berths from Vizag to Bengaluru, it had taken over the special train, launched by the SWR in the past. After running it for sometime, it gave the most inconvenient timings, converted it into a Suvidha special with dynamic fare and finally did not renew it.
North coastal andhra people very clear about the asking zone for VSKP. Even Srikakulam MP raised this issue of zonal HQ at vskp many times in parliament. Dont judge it by just new paper reports.
Who told if vizag gets train to delhi like Raj will not be useful for north andhra ?? It will stop at VZM, PVP if goes via Katni. Stops at SLO, RJY, EE, BZA if goes via WL. How come one train will help only originating station ??
Still many VSKP originating train have GNWL upto BZA.
Thank you for presenting a clear picture of the situation. Let's rest the argument here.
Hope you changed your mind about zone at Vizag as HQ , not a silly demand.
I have never thought of it as a silly demand. I too was very keen about development of railway facilities in the VSKP, VZM, CHE and the rest of AP that is struggling under ECoR. Your arguments were very concise and informative and I shall try to convey the same idea to others in future. Thank you for that.
I was born and brought up in Kakinada and Vizag and have always closely followed railway developments in both areas. But only difference was that I always tried to argue in favor of a situation where Vizag region gets it's share of facilities while the rest of Andhra stays intact with SCR, under which it has
See my friend, Again i am saying dont see it as VSKP region issues alone. If that the case the VSKP region from where highest taxes are getting collected by state, spending more on Capital region at Guntur by state govt, what if people of vskp region people fights for not using our taxes some where ?? As a state we need to take care about issues of all region. If not another separate state movement will come.
I dont know how many scr RF will be there , but railway issues of Vizag region is all about 1 crs people. Its became one of the biggest issue of this region my years.
They do use it. I didn't ask for many trains to be run. But just one daily to KCG. Like a standard overnight train for that section, instead of a mix-up of bi-weeklies. Train on wednesday is missing currently.
Yes connection to new capital and commercial capital VSKP in the route u mentioned is needed. I don't know why SWR is not allowing Kondaveedu to be made daily?
Kondaveedu wont help pak-dmm section.
Daily as of now not possible
Hardly anyone in Rayalseema bothered for a new zone. Because they know better than to protest. The state split because coastal Andhra, Krishna, Godavari districts cornered all resources. Many in Rayalseema wanted 3 way split (after split was finalized), because they knew capital, revenue and other developments will all be cornered by those districts.
One can compare Uttarandhra and Rayalseema as being short changed by all attention and development of coastal districts.
No for HUP, ATP region I was saying. That DMM-BZA train has no UR coaches at all, so this will help to some extent.
Gen coaches will alloted to tri weekly in future days
റിസർവേഷൻ കംപാർട്ട്മെന്റുകളിൽ ഹ്രസ്വദൂര യാത്രക്കാരുടെ തള്ളിക്കയറ്റം; പിന്നെ എന്തിന് റിസർവേഷൻ? Tuesday 18 October 2016 07:23 AM IST
ബെംഗളൂരു ∙ കേരളത്തിലേക്കുള്ള ട്രെയിനുകളിലെ റിസർവേഷൻ കംപാർട്ട്മെന്റുകളിൽ ഹ്രസ്വദൂര യാത്രക്കാരുടെ അതിക്രമം തുടർക്കഥയാകുന്നു. വൈകിട്ട് പുറപ്പെടുന്ന ബെംഗളൂരു സിറ്റി-കൊച്ചുവേളി എക്സ്പ്രസ്, ബെംഗളൂരു സിറ്റി-കന്യാകുമാരി എക്സ്പ്രസ് ട്രെയിനുകളിലെ റിസർവേഷൻ കോച്ചുകളിലാണ് പതിവ് ഹ്രസ്വദൂര യാത്രക്കാരുടെ തള്ളിക്കയറ്റം കാരണം റിസർവേഷനുള്ള ദീർഘദൂര യാത്രക്കാർ പൊറുതിമുട്ടുന്നത്.
സിറ്റി റെയിൽവേ സ്റ്റേഷനിൽനിന്ന് ട്രെയിൻ പുറപ്പെടുന്നതിനു പിന്നാലെ കന്റോൺമെന്റ്, കെആർ പുരം, വൈറ്റ്ഫീൽഡ് സ്റ്റേഷനുകളിൽനിന്നാണ് ഇവരുടെ തള്ളിക്കയറ്റം. ബംഗാർപേട്ട്, കുപ്പം എന്നിവിടങ്ങളിലേക്കുള്ളവരാണ് റിസർവേഷൻ കോച്ചുകളിൽ സ്ഥാനം പിടിക്കുന്നവരിലേറെയും. റിസർവ് ചെയ്ത യാത്രക്കാരാകട്ടെ കോച്ചിനുള്ളിലേക്ക് കയറാൻ പോലും കഴിയാതെ വാതിൽപ്പടിയിൽ ഇരുന്നു പോലും യാത്ര ചെയ്യേണ്ടിവരുന്നു. സീറ്റിനെച്ചൊല്ലി വാക്കേറ്റവും തർക്കവും പതിവാണ്. തിരക്കുള്ള ദിവസങ്ങളിലും ഉൽസവകാലത്തും റിസർവ് ചെയ്ത യാത്രക്കാർക്ക് ട്രെയിനിൽ കയറാൻ പോലും സാധിക്കാത്ത അനുഭവങ്ങളുമുണ്ട്.
