Shifting of Tipu’s armoury soon R. KRISHNA KUMAR  
Bangalore–Mysore track doubling work to gain momentum
The shifting of the 18th century armoury belonging to Tipu Sultan, which was hindering the progress

of track-doubling work between Bangalore and Mysore, will commence in due course.
The armoury at the Srirangapatana railway station bisects the alignment of the second track, which cannot be laid until the monument is shifted.
Sources in the South Western Railway told The Hindu that when the tender was floated last year inviting bids to translocate the monument, there were no takers. The tenders were floated again in June this year and M/s PSL-Wolfe Pvt. Ltd., which is a firm registered in New Delhi, was awarded the contract.
Translocation of the armoury as a single block entails moving it from the floor level from its existing location to a new site 100 metres away.
This is done by inserting a suitable supporting system underneath the monument, lifting it using unified hydraulic jacks and transporting it on suitably-designed carriers.
Besides, the project also envisages placing the heritage structure at the new location in the same orientation as at present and integrating the structure with the new foundation.
In the process, no damage should be caused to the historic structure which was used to store arms and ammunitions. Sources said this will be the first time that a monument would be translocated as a single block, though many structures have been dismantled and reassembled again.
Project cost The project will cost about Rs. 13.66 crore and has to be completed in 9 months from the date of commencement and during this period, the Pandavapura-Srirangapatana-Naganahalli section will operate as a single-line section.
Once the monument is shifted, the 13-km single-line stretch on this section will be converted into a double-line section.
The Bangalore-Mysore double line work is officially slated to be completed by March 2015, but for the Naganahalli-Pandavpura section till the monument was shifted. Shifting of the armoury was a major roadblock impeding the pace of the track-doubling work ever since it was noticed in early 2008, and initially there was resistance from the State Archaeological Survey.
However, a Cabinet decision was taken to shift the monument but this had to be cleared by the National Monument Authority of the Archaeological Survey of India which gave its clearance in early 2013.
Archaeological experts had pointed out then that the structure was made of lime mortar and bricks and hence could not be dismantled as in case of structures built using granite or slab stones.
There was considerable delay when the ASI had urged the Railways to realign the track but it was dismissed as impractical as the supporting piers — on which two major bridges across the river Cauvery on either side of Srirangapatana railway station was to be laid — had already been completed.

wanted to share a small but interesting incident that happened when i was onboard this train today
.
there is a onboard cleaning staff on this train ..i boarded this train at NGP , it arrived around 5 hours late ..in my coach there was all moongfhali ke chikkal spread all over , and water had managed to come on the floor ...then sone pe suhaga , one elderly fellow asked me to change my seat with his ..which i did with no fuss as it was day journey ...
.
then i saw the cleaning staff cross by the coach atleast twice and they turned a blind eye on the filth all
...
Read more...
over ..everyone in the coach had resigned to the fate and cleaning staff was making merry ...i too didnt bother too much ..but then as i was roaming ..i saw one of the staff quickly filling up the form on his own ..i didnt interrupt him there ..but as he moved towards my seat , i gently paused him and asked his official register just to have a look , he gave it to me ...i saw some forms filled up with the same type pf tick marks and writing .
.
i asked him the coach hasnt been cleaned then who has signed the forms ..who are these people , he realised something and quickly replied these are WL passengers in some other coach ..i already knew he is lying ...
.
in front of everyone i asked him to bring those passengers here or else i wont return his register ..or call the tte ..then one uncle came and he said from GKP itself the coach was not cleaned and he started shouting at 2 fellows..they realised they are in trouble, they accepted that they lied and quickly got all the staff in the coach , cleaned it , sprayed room freshner , did floor moop with phenyl and then left embarrassed ...
