The exponential growth of Namma Metro commuters has triggered an unprecedented competition in Baiyappanahalli: An intense price war to beckon motorcyclists and car drivers to the parking lots run by the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRC) and the South Western Railway.
To beat competition from the old railway parking lot, the upcoming Metro slot has an introductory offer: Park a two-wheeler for the whole day at just Rs 15, a 50% discount on the rate charged by parking contractors in other Metro stations.
But a flex board hung from a table shows the

parking fee as Rs 15 for the first four hours, Rs 5 for every one hour thereafter and Rs 30 for the entire day. The contractor, however, explained that it was just “for the record.”
The buzz around the new parking lot was even more inviting for potential parkers: Shopkeepers were heard telling motorcyclists that the space was available for free parking for the next one month. The contractor, however, dismissed this. The free offer was apparently an informal arrangement, fixed on a ‘case-to-case’ basis.
Hundreds of railway passengers bound for Whitefield, Hoodi, Malur and stations towards the city, park their vehicles at the old parking lot behind the Baiyappanahalli railway station. The completion of the Namma Metro first phase has sparked a big rise in the number of Metro commuters as well.
However, the railway parking lot contractor's joy at an anticipated jump in revenue was short-lived. For, the Metro opened a second parking space, less than 200 metres from the railway slot. This was reason enough for a cost-cutting spree.
The Metro parking lot on Railway parallel road behind the Baiyappanahalli railway station is still a work in progress. The space for two-wheelers has been levelled but cars are still parked on uneven ground. The new parking lots had to be readied in a hurry since the space near the Metro station’s Old Madras Road entrance had quickly saturated.

The railway overbridge on Miller's Road is posing a threat to commuters as its corroded tin base has started leaking and is falling in bits and pieces on vehicles and people passing underneath. The leakage caused by rain results in creaking sounds and often scares commuters who are now avoiding the road while trains pass overhead.
"This is one of the oldest bridges in the city. I have been seeing it ever since I moved nearby 25-30 years ago," said Nishad Khan. "I see people waiting for trains to pass so that they can cross the area under the bridge," he added.
Bridge

number 841 B connects Cantonment Railway Station to Bangalore East and Whitefield stations. Most trains passing through Cantonment take this route. "The tin base has withered completely and can fall anytime. Is the railways waiting for a tragedy to happen before taking up the maintenance work," asked Krishna Ramanathan, a commuter on the stretch.
Naresh R, another commuter, said, "We have to wait for six to seven minutes at the traffic signal ahead of the bridge, and if any train passes, then the wait gets extended by another three to four minutes. The condition of bridge is so bad that you can actually see through it. This is dangerous, but the railway authorities do not seem to be concerned."
Officials deny leakage
Railway manager, Bengaluru division (SWR), R S Saxena said, "As per reports from officials, the bridge is in good condition and there is no leakage at all." According to SWR records, the bridge was included for maintenance in 2015 along with other bridges at Rs 1.59 crore. But no change seems to have occurred on the ground.

भारतीय रेलवे ने बुधवार को देश के 23 रेलवे स्टेशनों को नीलाम कर दिया है. इन स्टेशनों को किसने खरीदा और कितने पैसों में खरीदा ये राज़ 30 जून को खुलेगा लेकिन रेलवे का ये फैसला रेलवे का चेहरा बदल कर रख देगा.
इलाहाबाद, कानपुर, इंदौर, जयपुर, उदयपुर सिटी, जम्मू तवी, हावड़ा, रांची, मुंबई सेंट्रल, फरीदाबाद, बेंगलुरु छावनी, यशवंतपुर, चेन्नई सेंट्रल, विशाखापट्टनम, कामाख्या, सिकंदराबाद, विजयवाड़ा और भुवनेश्वर. इनमें से रेलवे ने कानपुर जंक्शन का बेस प्राइस 200 करोड़ रुपए जबकि इलाहाबाद का 150 करोड़ रुपए तय किया था.

तंगहाली के चलते नहीं की जा रही है. रेलवे तंगहाल जरूर है लेकिन वो निजी और सार्वजनिक भागीदारी से इन स्टेशनों का कायापलट करना चाहता था. साथ ही अपनी कमाई भी बढ़ाना चाहता है. रेलवे का मकसद इन स्टेशनों को वर्ल्ड क्लास स्टेशनों की कतार में खड़ा करना है. इसी मकसद से उसने अपने वेबसाइट पर इन स्टेशनों की ऑन लाइन बोली लगाने का इंतज़ाम किया 30 जून को इसका नतीजा आएगा.
जिस कंपनी ने सबसे अधिक बोली लगाई उसे 45 साल की लीज पर स्टेशन का प्लेटफॉर्म, लाउंज और वैस हिस्से मिलेंगे जिन पर वो होटल, मॉल, मल्टीप्लेक्स और कमर्शियल इकाई बना सके. प्लेटफार्म पर फूड स्टॉल, रिटायरिंग रूम, फ्रेश एरिया, प्ले एरिया भी कंपनी की कमाई का जरिया बनेंगे लेकिन उन्हें यहां बेहतरीन सुविधाओं का इंतज़ाम करना होगा. जबकि रेलवे सिर्फ सुरक्षा, टिकट बिक्री और पार्सल के साथ ही ट्रेनों को चलाने की जिम्मेदारी संभालेगा.
रेलवे ने इसकी शुरुआत मध्यप्रदेश में भोपाल के हबीबगंज स्टेशन से कर दी है. ये स्टेशन बंसल कंस्ट्रक्शन को मिला है और वहां काम भी शुरू हो गया है. इलाहाबाद का स्टेशन कैसा दिखेगा इसकी तस्वीर इंटरनेट पर आ गई है. मतलब साफ है कि अगर अब आपकी ट्रेन लेट हो जाए तो मॉल या मल्टीप्लेक्स के लिए स्टेशन से बाहर जाने की जरूरत नहीं पड़ेगी. ना ही ट्रेन छूटने का डर रहेगा. सारी सुविधाएं स्टेशन और प्लेटफॉर्म ही मौजूद रहेंगी.

Kochi: Trains from Kerala have been scuttled citing non-availability of platforms in Bengaluru even as new services from other locations across the nation are having a jolly ride.
Authorities say heavy rush at SR Bengaluru City, Yeshwantpur, Bengaluru Cantonment and Krishnarapauram stations force them to disallow trains from Kerala.
Demands

were raised at conferences that trains from Kerala should be allowed to stop, but the Railways have not bothered to consider it.
The Thiruvanathapuram-Bengaluru Cantonment train, announced in the 2013 budget, is yet to start services.
At the same time, the Hamsafar Express from Varanasi to the same destination would begin service from June 21.
Charges are that the Railways is obliging the private bus lobby, which will lose income if more trains run from Kerala to Bengaluru.
All trains announced in the 2013 budget have started running within a year. The Thiruvanathapuram-Bengaluru premium (22658/22657), which was to run twice a week, is the only one that has not yet started services.
It was to start from Kerala on Thursdays and Sundays. Return services were set for Monday and Friday.
The maximum rush from Bengaluru to Kerala is on Friday and from Kerala to Bengaluru on Sunday. If trains are added on these days, private buses will be affected. That's why private bus operators are pulling the strings at Railways Headquarters and at Bengaluru.
The train was scheduled in all railway time tables published since 2013, but there has been no effort to start it. Passengers say MPs from Kerala have never bothered to raise it in Parliament.
Six new services were started from different stations in Bengaluru to other cities since 2013 even when the authorities disallow Kerala trains on the premise that the stations are too busy. The Coimbatore-Bengaluru and Uday double-decker trains will start soon while the new trains announced from Kerala remains on paper.
