Minister promises operation of Kudla Express from Mangaluru Central
Union Minister for Statistics and Programme Implementation D.V. Sadananda Gowda on Sunday said that the Indian Railways will strive to respond to development demands from Mangaluru railway region, which, at present, is spread across three Railway Zones.
He was speaking after Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu remotely flagged off the Mangaluru-Yeshwantpur Kudla Express; launched electrification of Mangaluru-Chervathur line; doubling of Jokatte-Panambur line and a railway siding at Thokur Station, here.

is aware that Mangaluru region is bereft of major railway amenities as it is served by the Southern, the South Western and Konkan Railways. Immediately taking charge as the Railway Minister, he had commenced the initiative of creating Mangaluru Railway Division; but it could not be done for technical reasons.
However, he now has initiated the move to relocate Konkan Railway’s regional office from Karwar to Mangaluru. This should culminate in some kind of reprieve for the region, he said.
The Minister said that the flagging off Kudla Express was the happiest movement in his life as he is giving something back to people who have nurtured him. He said that he had clearly told Mr. Prabhu that he would not attend any Railway function unless Kudla Express was introduced.
Mr. Sadananda Gowda said that when he had announced Kudla Express in the 2014 Railway Budget, he wanted it between Mangaluru Central and Yeshwantpur.
He is aware of the difficulties of the people reaching Mangaluru Junction from where it starts at present and has told Mr. Prabhu to get the train to Mangaluru Central, located inside the city. Soon, the train would come to Central and the inconvenient timings of its running too would be sorted out, he said.
Government Chief Whip in Legislative Council Ivan D’Souza launched an onslaught on Southern Railway which controls Mangaluru Central and Mangaluru Junction.
He said that the zone has been indifferent to the needs of the region despite it getting more than half of its revenue from New Mangalore Port.
Mr. D’Souza urged Southern Railway to be considerate to the region’s demand and urged it to introduce a night train between Bengaluru and Mangaluru.
Member of Parliament Nalin Kumar Kateel, Forest Minister B. Ramanath Rai and others were present.
Fare
The fare between Mangaluru and Yeshwantpur is ₹ 130 on Kudla Express, which has second class chair cars and general second class sitting coaches. It is ₹ 85 to Hassan, ₹ 95 to Shravanabelagola and ₹ 115 to Kunigal.

Of the 19-km long rail line being doubled between Mangaluru Junction and Thokur, on the outskirts of the city, a six-km stretch between Thokur, Panambur, and Jokatte will be commissioned by March next, according to Anand Prakash, Divisional Railway Manager, Palakkad Division, Southern Railway.
On the sidelines of a meeting here on Saturday, he said that it might take two more years to commission the entire stretch. He said that constructing a 750-metre long parallel tunnel at Kulashekara was a challenge. Other challenges in completing the tunnel would be known only when the works progressed. They might lead to extension of the deadline fixed for completing the stretch.

to the line electrification between Shoranur and Thokur, he said that unless six traction power sub-stations between the two stations were ready, the entire stretch could not be commissioned fully.
Bindu Muralidhara, Regional Railway Manager, Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd. said that the 741-km long Konkan track between Roha in Maharashtra and Thokur would be doubled and electrified at an estimated cost of Rs. 10,600 crore. Union Minister for Railways Suresh Prabhu would lay the foundation stone for the works on Sunday. In the first phase, the 42-km stretch between Roha and Veer stations in Maharashtra would be doubled. Works on doubling other stretches would be taken up in phases.
A proposal to double the 115-km long stretch between Thokur and Baindoor was now before the Railway Board.
Earlier, an official in the meeting called by Nalin Kumar Kateel, MP, he said that the survey of Kaniyoor-Kanhangad railway line had been completed. The joint survey of land required for creating a world class railway station at Mangaluru Junction station had been over. The MP asked the officials to place their details at the next review meeting.
