The much awaited train service along the newly laid railway line between Bengaluru (Yeshwantpur) and Hassan will be inaugurated by Union Minister for Railways Suresh Prabhu at 11 am on Sunday. The introduction of Train Number 22679/22680, Yeshwantpur-Hassan-Yeshwantpur Daily Superfast Intercity Express, goes a long way in cutting down travel time for passengers who otherwise had to take trains via Mysuru to reach Hassan and onwards to Mangaluru.

He says journey time should be reduced by 30-45 mins...Already it's taking 2 hour 35 mins only with speed 63... If you reduce by 45 mins then you can calculate average speed comes to 80+ ... Not even Bangalore Rajdhani has that speed
Secondly I think railway will first check patronage.
If patronage is good then itself it will increase frequency.

If you take account of passenger traffic via govt & private bus operators & anticipating rush specially due to upcoming festive occasion, Railways must Introduce atleast one more pair of trains with reverse timetable w.r.t current one.

Presently the MPS is 80Kmph, I too doubt how it will stick to its 63Kmph average with an 80Kmph MPS in the section even though there are no crossings.

BENGALURU: The exact date for the opening of the new railway line between Nelamangala and Sharavanabelagola is yet to be finalised. A proposal to open the line via video link from New Delhi on March 9 by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu was shelved as Chief Minister Siddaramaiah conveyed his inability to take part in the inaugural function at Yeswanthpur. The upcoming state budget was cited as the reason.
The Commissioner of Railway Safety had given the green signal for commencing operations along the 111-km line, part of the Bengaluru-Hassan project, on February 21. Sources said that former Prime Minister Deve Gowda was keen on Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurating it. However, that did not materialise.(see box). Meanwhile, it was decided that Suresh

Prabhu will inaugurate it in the presence of Deve Gowda, who had announced the project when he was Prime Minister during 1996-1997.
It was a frantic week at the Railways last week when they were told to get ready to commence running of trains on March 9. “Station masters, pointsmen and ticket booking staff were posted along the 11 stations enroute and everything was in place to ensure that trains can be run on the route,” said a top railway official.
“The CM wrote to the Railway Ministry conveying his inability to take part in the inauguration due to the upcoming budget and has asked for an inaugural date after March 15,” said E Vijaya, Deputy General Manager, South Western Railways, Hubballi.
Ashok Gupta, Chief Administrative Officer, Constructions, SWR, said, “Both the Railways and the state government are equally sharing the cost of the new line (`1,289 crore).”
When commissioned, it will take an Express train just 10.5 hours to cover the distance between Bengaluru and Mangaluru, about 90 minutes shorter than the present shortest route

हसन-बेंगलुरु ब्रॉड गेज लाइन बनाने में लग गए करोड़ों
रेल ट्रैक पर इतना खर्च हुआ कि 3 बार मंगल हो आएं!
इस प्रॉजेक्ट की लागत इतनी ज्यादा इसलिए बढ़ गई क्योंकि कर्नाटक सरकार सही समय पर जमीन उपलब्ध कराने में असफल रही। प्रॉजेक्ट लेट होता चला गया और इसकी कॉस्ट बढ़ती गई। -संजीव वी दयामनंवर, रेल विशेषज्ञ

ये रेलवे लाइन पूर्व पीएम एचडी देवगौड़ा का ड्रीम प्रॉजेक्ट था। 1996-97 के कार्यकाल में उन्होंने प्रॉजेक्ट की प्रारंभिक लागत 295 करोड़ रुपये बताई थी।

All of us use catering services while travelling in a train. Almost every time we pay the caterers the amount they ask, without actually enquiring about the prices. The Logical Indian has been trying to create awareness on this issue and how we can avoid getting cheated. Protapta Das shares his experience on his timeline.
“Last week I was travelling from Visakhapatnam to Howrah in Yesvantpur-Howrah Express. Ordered Veg. meal from the pantry car, as per waiter it was Rs.90/- only. I always have in mind that these people are charging very high for the meals but never took it seriously. But this time I determined to inquire about it. Googled about the rate card and menu, found this website, IRCTC Help:
...
more...
IRCTC Latest Food Menu Rates. I was shocked when I saw the prices –
Veg meals which pantry car person was selling at Rs 90 was priced only Rs 50/-
Non-Veg Meals pantry car rate was priced Rs 100 is only Rs 55/-
Two more options are also available as Standard Thali Meals- Veg and Non-Veg atRs 35 and Rs 40.
After meals, I handed over Rs 50 to the waiter, but he was demanding Rs 90. I asked him about the RATE CARD; he refused to have any such thing. Shown him the above website and rates, he was told that Rs. 50 will be ok, but DON’T TELL ANYONE. I was so furious, travelled all the way from 13th coach to 1st coach to the pantry car.
And on my way, informed co-passengers who were taking the meals from pantry about this scam. Met the Pantry-In-charge. Enquired about this. He was also telling the same story, rate cards are missing right now but will shortly get the new one. About the jacked price of the meal, he was mum. Lodged a complaint in his Complaint register, which he handed over to me after half an hour.
Initially, he was pleading not to write the complaint but after writing the complaint, he was like nobody will see this, it will go into dustbin that’s it. To my surprise, against my complaint (he is obliged to give reason in writing – triplet complaint copies – one has to handed over to customer) he wrote “taken only Rs 50 from customer Bill No XXX and this customer writes complaint every time he travels.The same situation is in almost every train, pantry car meals price are jacked up as no one questions them, no one asks about the rate card.
As per one of the estimate, every day around 25 million passenger travel from Indian Railways, if only 0.5% of these passengers takes either lunch or dinner from pantry cars, extra Rs 30 on each meal will make these people rich by Rs 3,75,00,000 each day.
ENORMOUS !
Please do insist for bill every time you order food from a Railway pantry car.”
