Yesterday (08:04)   Bengaluru-Hassan broad gauge line may open next month

MYSURU: After nearly 21 years, the Bengaluru-Hassan broad gauge line may be operational from mid-March 2017. The project for the 172-km stretch between Bengaluru and Hassan was sanctioned in 1996 when HD Deve Gowda was the Prime Minister.
In 1996, the project cost was Rs 295 crore but now due to delay for various reasons, including land allotment and sanction of money, it costs Rs 1,289.92 crore. Once operational, the travel distance from Bengaluru to Hassan will be reduced by 50km via Arsikere and about 87km via Mysuru. The distance between Bengaluru and Hassan is 259km via Mysuru and 213km via Arsikere.
new line will connect Bengaluru (starting point Chikkabanavar) with Hassan via Nelamangala, Kunigal, Yediyur and Shravanabelagola. The track is almost parallel to National Highway 48 (Bengaluru and Mangaluru). The Hassan-Shravanabelagola line, a 44km stretch, was opened in 2006, but the project didn't proceed until 2010 due to shortage of funds and land. The project gained momentum in 2010 when the state government agreed to bear half the project cost and by then, railways had spent Rs 335 crore.It will also reduce the travel time between Bengaluru and Mangaluru. The 368-km route from Bengaluru will be 10.5 hour till Mangaluru and will help the existing route via Mysuru and Hassan which takes nearly 12 hours and Arsikere and Hassan take 11.15hours. The new line will also help devotees going to Shravanabelagola.
It was a long-pending demand of the Jain community.
The Commissioner for Railway Safety (CRS) conducted statutory inspection of the section from Nelamangala to Shravanabelagola. The section from Bengaluru and Nelamangala on one end and Hassan and Shravanabelagola on the other has already been commissioned for passenger traffic. The stretch from Nelamangala to Shravanabelagola will be operational after CRS authorization.
Sanjiv Agarwal, divisional railway manager, Bengaluru Division, South Western Railway, said, "For most projects, funding and land are the two bottlenecks. There was no proper assured funding for this project and there were some land issues which were later resolved. Now, we're awaiting authorization from the Commissioner of Railway Safety. We require more staff, at least 100 to start with."

Feb 20 2017 (11:13)   Yeshwantpur, Bangalore Cantt Stations to turn Nerve Centres in 4 years

BANGALORE: Yeshwantpur and Bangalore Cantonment stations would be upgraded into world-class stations in the next four years if the project launched on Wednesday by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu is executed without a hitch.
South Western Railway (SWR) general manager A K Gupta said 23 stations across the country have been selected and Bengaluru has the distinction of having two of its stations in the list. Interacting with the media before the minister launched the stations redevelopment programme in New Delhi, Gupta said the projects will make the stations the nerve centres of the city, besides providing high-quality passenger amenities.
has set June 6 as deadline for submission of documents for bidders. When asked about the timeline of the project, he said the work order will be placed within an year and the project is expected to be completed within three years.
As per the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model, Yeshwantpur station will be developed at a cost of Rs 100 crore and Cantonment station at Rs 80 crore. Both amounts are indicative as the bidder can propose a project at a higher cost. In return, the developer will get 45-year lease of 2.25 acres of land near Cantonment station and 20 acres adjacent to Yeshwantpur station.
SWR officials said Mysuru, Belagavi, Ballari, Vijayapura, Dharwad and Bangarpet are among the 15 stations that will be proposed for inclusion in phase II of the programme.
Project nodal officer and SWR chief planning and design engineer D K Garg, who briefed the media and investors, said the stations will be connected to the existing transport systems, including Metro, bus and taxis. Accessibility of Cantonment station will be improved, Garg said. The developer will have to maintain the station for 15 years, during which he will share the revenue generated through advertisement and leasing of stalls on the premises.

Ballari(near Hampi) and Vijayapura are listed because of foreign tourist destination. Belagavi might be for second capital of KA and Dharwad is like YPR back up station of Hubballi, in future north bound trains can start from here.

Feb 13 2017 (21:46)   My Story: This Is How Caterers Are Scamming Passengers Travelling In Indian Railway

DhnEcr~   29 news posts
Entry# 2163399   News Entry# 293805         Tags   Past Edits
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:
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.
Please do insist for bill every time you order food from a Railway pantry car.”

You can read about the prices here: Revised Tariff for tea, coffee, breakfast and standard meals. Download the pdf file and take it whenever you are travelling. To have the idea of what actual prices are, here we are attaching the menu.

It's on between GTL-BAY-HPT. It's updated on IRI atlas.
What the member is saying is that the the info on station page of BAY says single diesel line. It should be "Electrification of Double line".
HPT should be "Electrification of Double line".

Why do passengers prefer train over Air even when are fares are lesser than Train Fare AC3T (Attached screen shots, half of the berths have been booked, hence Train Fare has increased).

Earlier Venkat Anna posted pune-bengaluru airfare 888,mumbai-bengaluru airfare 1300 change so end to end people will prefer air owing to high 3a fare of 1800-2500 in this sector and utmost the timing flight takes roughly round 1hr-90mns, railways is steadily losing the long distance battle to airways
For instance i myself have booked bengaluru-new Delhi on 4 march 2017 for a price of 2000 all inclusive and 2hr 15 mns journey the same would cost around 2200-4000 in Kk,ksk or rajdhani 3A that too 2 nights one day obviously for me time matters.
Slowly and steadily the so-called DYNAMIC,FLEXI FARE pricing of railways is paving to airways to clinch the crown
