Train timings are getting changed
But many admins are seeing this as a way to increase their number of updates
They are doing manual update of each station rather than waiting for automatic update tomorrow.
not only increases chances of errors but also congests train timeline
Please look into this matter

What is the problem as long as the updation is correct? And whats wrong when timlines are congesting.. its expected when TT changes? Admins role is to update the TT and stuff of the site. I don't understand what if you u see 1000 timeline updates? If this message is for moderator, then you should private message him.
#FM's please remove this post.

May 28 2014 (12:14)   Separate railway division: Will DVS fulfil Mangalore's dream?

Jayashree ❖ Amita*^   36160 news posts
Entry# 1114305   News Entry# 178183         Tags   Past Edits
Mangalore, May 28: With former chief minister D V Sadananda Gowda assuming charge as the minister of railways in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet, coupled with the election promise of MP Nalin Kumar Kateel, who again won the Lok Sabha elections from Dakshina Kannada constituency, the formation of a separate Mangalore railway division is likely to see green signal.

Presently, the Mangalore railway region functions under Palakkad division of Southern Railway Zone, which is headquartered in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. It is a long-pending demand of the people of the port city
to form a separate Mangalore railway division and bring it under South Western Railway Zone, which is headquartered in Hubli, Karnatala.

This was one of the promises made by the Dakshina Kannada unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in its election manifesto. Now, the handing over of railway ministry to D V Sadananda Gowda, who hails from the district, has boosted the hopes among the people of Mangalore. It has given double the reason as well as responsibility to BJP to fulfil its promise.

However, history has been witness to several ministers of Karnataka assuming the charge as union railway ministers including M Mallikarjun Kharge and K H Muniyappa, but the demand remains unfulfilled till date.

Sources said that the demands of the ministers were previously put on hold due to pressure by ministers of other states interested in the matter. It is said that the move to create a separate Mangalore division would not augur well for the Palakkad division since the freight revenues are mainly obtained from the Mangalore port. Hence, the demand has not seen the light of day. Now, the hopes have been rekindled with D V Sadananda Gowda taking up charge of the railway ministry and Nalin Kumar Kateel expected to deliver on his promise.

"With the establishment of Mangalore Railway division, there will be more facilities and benefits to the passengers and goods traffic. Moreover, it will also boost the economic and social development of Mangalore as well as the entire west coast. It will bring together the existing area of Mangalore Central, Mangalore Junction and New Mangalore Port and Konkan Railway jurisdiction," stated a letter previously sent by Oscar Fernandes to former railway minister Mallikarjuna Kharge urging to create a separate division.

Hanumant Kamath of Nagarika Hitarakshana Samiti of Mangalore said, "Mangalore railway faces stepmotherly treatment under Pallakkad division. This has to change on priority basis. Maillikarjuna Kharge made use of his ministry to create a separate Gulbarga railway division, which was also a similar long-pending demand. With Sadananda Gowda, a Mangalorean assuming the charge, he should focus on forming the Mangalore railway division. If he fails, we will protest by showing black flags when he comes to the city."

Nalin Kumar Kateel, MP of Dakshina Kannada constituency promised to take up this cause. Speaking to daijiworld on phone, he said, "Soon after D V Sadaganda Gowda took up the ministry, I congratulated him. I have put forth the need to create a separate Mangalore railway division. He has agreed to take up the issue on priority."
When contacted, Sadananda Gowda said that he would study the proposal in 15 days and then take appropriate action.

For your and others kind info the train which touches MAQ/MAJN, for route and stoppages it has to get Approved from SR. SWR alone can't take any decision.

Mr Shashank if IRTTC decides to run a train via KR to MAQ SR just needs to confirm if it can accomodate at MAQ and if at all it should get a stop at MAJN. and cannot force it to run via PGT though they can put their thoughts and request to route.

You know one thing, 12133/4 MAJN SF doesn't go to MAQ because the stupid SR said there's no platforms available at MAQ at that time. They proposed to extend it to somewhere in Kerala.

Post MAQ divn being formed as a part of SWR. This train along with its RSA partner should be short terminated at Kannur. A new train should be introduced by SWR from Mangalore to Chennai via Arsikere and Bangalore City. 12685/86 can continue though for its timing. The train should also be renamed a Kannur Mail. Similarly all trains extended to Kerala from MAQ should also be given back to SWR, MAQ Divn. All new trains from MAQ should be introduced only via UBL or SBHR - SKLR - HAS

whatever areas u supporting having their RM so ask them for more infra trains. this kind of hatred post are not at all needed. IR is nation wide network not dedicated for particular state. Trains are the cheapest mode of transportation for poor people for long distance, if hatred developed that cant be good. we r in need of for long trains covering many states

It feels good to see that people still feel that we are one and railways should not be divided in terms of the state they run through.
FM's you may archive this post or delete it as appropriate you may feel.
my fellow bloggers. I am not any biased person towards kerala or karnataka. I am that person who was frustrated with the number of posts going on Mr. Gowda becoming the RM and Mangalore - Palakkad split being discussed which is crappy. Sorry to have hurt the feelings of anyone here.

Mangala was train meant for Malabar region and MAQ. When KR came, IR decided to move it via KR and extend to ERS, so that it can stil conct MAQ and Malabar. It is not about historical info, it is about how you understand the info. Now and then, Mangala is serving its purpose.
