Hubballi: After two-and-half decades, passenger trains will start plying between Harihar and Hosapete via Kotturu from Thursday. This section will cut down travel time between Bengaluru and Hosapete. This line will also connect the Bengaluru-Hubballi main line to the Hubballi-Guntakal line.
In the 19th century, the then British rulers had developed a railway line between Hosapete and Kotturu to export cotton from Kotturu. Passenger trains were also being run on this section till 1994. That year, railway minister C K Jaffer Sharief sanctioned a broad-gauge for this section and subsequently operation of trains was stalled to take up the work. He had also extended the line till Harihar.
Ironically,

then railway minister Mallikarjun Kharge had inaugurated a passenger train on the new Harihar-Kotturu line in March 2014 itself. Due to one or the other reason, the old Kotturu-Hosapete line could not be completed till 2016, after which freight trains were started. Due to a technical glitch between Tungabhadra Dam and Gunda Road stations, South Western Railway (SWR) could not run passenger trains on this line.
Veteran novelist and Kotturu resident Kum Veerabhadrappa said he is prepared to travel to Hosapete on the train’s inauguration day itself.“We had protested against then railway minister Jaffer Sharief in 1993 for cancelling the passenger train on this line citing low patronage. Later the agitation became a people’s movement to get a broad-gauge line. However, due to lack of interest among local politicians, the work was dragged for 25 years, which is a shame for every one of the region. Now SWR is launching a passenger train from Hosapete to Harihar but it should start from Ballari so that lakhs of passengers of both the districts can benefit,” he said.
“If this line had been opened when the mining industry booming, railways could have run freight trains and cut the distance to reach Mangaluru and Ankola ports by 160km,” he added.
Zonal Railway Users Consultative Committee member and Hosapete resident Babulal Jain thanked SWR for finally re-introducing the passenger train in the hinterland. “This line will help connect heritage sites like Vijayapura, Badami (Aihole-Pattadkal) and Hosapete (Hampi) with Bengaluru if a train is started from Vijayapura to Bengaluru via Gadag, Hosapete, Kotturu, Harihar and Davangere,” he added.
Ballari District Chamber of Commerce and Industry president V Ravi Kumar said the passenger train will enhance economy of the region. “It was a long pending demand of businessmen and commoners,” he added.About Kotturu
Kotturu, about 200 km from Hubballi, is a cotton industry hub. The Kottureshwara temple here attracts lakhs of people from all over the state. Legend has it that Mughal king Akbar was also a devotee of saint Kottureshwara. With the inauguration of the passenger train, people of Hyderabad-Karnataka will be connected with central, Malnad and coastal regions of the state by train.
Inauguration
Minister of state for railways Suresh Angadi will inaugurate the Hosapete-Kotturu passenger train at 11am at Hosapete railway station in the presence of deputy chief minister Laxman Savadi and other elected representatives on Thursday

their best foot forward to start the commercial services in the first phase of the East-West Corridor during the last week of October. The first phase of Line-2, covering around 5.7 km, would serve as a vital link of transportation for the residents of Salt Lake. The service would connect Sector V to Howrah Maidan.
The final rounds of preparations by the engineers of Kolkata Metro Rail Corporation Limited (KMRCL) are being carried out in full swing. The authorities of the project’s implementing agency are now focussing on the grey areas as per the recommendations given by the commissioner of railway safety after an inspection in July. The experts have asked the KMRCL to fix the defective bearings on the piers that hold the viaduct on which the rail tracks have been laid. Another recommendation of the CRS was for upgradation of the software of the Train Control and Management System (TCMS).
The KMRCL engineers, according to sources in Metro Railway, were asked to complete the remaining work by 20 October. The Metro authorities had conducted a mock run for seven days in August to familiarise the team of about 150 officials who had received intense training in Hyderabad, Bangalore and Kolkata with the nuances and technicalities of the highly advanced East-West Corridor. However, some areas, according to Metro officials, needed more emphasis even after the completion of the mock runs. The Metro authorities were considering starting the second round of independent mock runs but the idea had to be abandoned due to the Bowbazar disaster.
After a high-level meeting held on 28 September, the Metro railway authorities have decided to begin the second round of demo-runs. “The three-day mock run will be conducted in the next week while simultaneous preparations will be carried out by the KMRCL,” an official of Kolkata Metro Rail said. “After the completion of the remaining task, the KMRCL will submit a compliance report to us. A decision on the date of inauguration will be taken only after that. However, if everything goes according to the plan, the inauguration can take place in the last week of October,” he added.

दीपावली सीजन में भारतीय रेलवे की प्रीमियम ट्रेनों का किराया फ्लाइट के किराए से भी ज्यादा हो गया है। दीपावली पर रूटीन में चलने वाली ट्रेनों में सीटों की वेटिंग लिस्ट इतनी लंबी है कि कुछ ट्रेनों में तो नो रूम यानी उनकी वेटिंग टिकट देने की सीमा भी खत्म हो गई है। दीपावली पर बैंगलुरू से जयपुर तक चलने वाली ट्रेन अजमेर से गुजरेगी।
24 अक्टूबर को यशवंतपुर, बैंगलुरू से अजमेर आने वाली सुविधा प्रीमियम ट्रेन का सेकंड एसी का किराया 8870, थर्ड एसी का किराया 7365 और स्लीपर किराया 2890 रुपए है।

पर ज्यादा यात्री भार होने पर यह किराया और भी बढ़ सकता है, जबकि 5 से 7 हजार के बीच जयपुर से बैंगलुरू की फ्लाइट का किराया आम दिनों में रहता है।
वहीं सामान्य दिनों में चलने वाली बैंगलुरू-अजमेर ट्रेन में सेकंड एसी का किराया 2990, थर्ड एसी का 2015 और स्लीपर का किराया 755 रुपए है।
बांद्रा-जयपुर स्पेशल में भी स्लीपर वेटिंग 200 छूने को तैयार
24 को बांद्रा से चलकर 25 को अजमेर आने वाली स्पेशल ट्रेन 09724 सेकंड एसी का किराया 2315, थर्ड एसी का किराया 1690 और स्लीपर का किराया 630 रुपए है। स्पेशल ट्रेन के बढ़े हुए किराए में भी अजमेर तक आने के लिए सेकंड एसी में 28, थर्ड एसी में 73 और स्लीपर में 194 की वेटिंग है।
त्योहार मनाकर लौटना भी हुआ मुश्किल
दीपावली अजमेर मनाकर लौटना भी पढ़ने वाले बच्चों और नौकरीपेशा लोगों के लिए आसान नहीं होगा। 29 अक्टूबर को मुंबई जाने वाली ट्रेन 19708 में स्लीपर में 101, थर्ड ऐसी में 29 और सेकंड एसी में 19 वेटिंग है। इस मार्ग पर जाने वाली ट्रेन संख्या 22996 में स्लीपर में 96, थर्ड एसी में 67 और सेकंड एसी में 37 की वेटिंग है। 28 तारीख को अजमेर से किशनगंज जाने वाली ट्रेन में 15716 में स्लीपर क्लास में 118 तथा थर्ड एसी में 35 वेटिंग है।
