Kalaburagi-Bidar line to be commissioned in February 2017
10 Aug, 2016 in Central Railway, Solapur Division / South Central Railway, Secunderabad Division by rail
Gulbarga Bidar lineKalaburagi: The long-pending Kalaburagi-Bidar new rail line will be commissioned in February 2017 after the completion of the ongoing works on laying rail lines and construction of railway stations between Kalaburagi and Humnabad, Ajai Kumar Dubey, Divisional Railway Manager, Central Railway, has said.Speaking at the flagging of ceremony of the Gulbarga-Hyderabad Inter-city Express on Monday, he outlined the works taken up by the Railways in the
Kalaburagi region.
He said that the fourth platform at the Gulbarga Railway Station, constructed at a cost of Rs. 4.5 crore, would be commissioned in September and the second foot overbridge along with a lift in the fourth platform, set up at a cost of Rs. 2.6 crore, would be commissioned by March 2017.
The road overbridge at Mother Teresa School on the New Jewargi Road, taken up at a cost of Rs. 20 crore, was expected to be completed by June 2017.
The road overbridge on Kalaburagi-Afzalpur Road, taken up at a cost of Rs. 5.5 crore, would be completed by December. The installation of closed-circuit television cameras at the Gulbarga Railway Station under the Nirbhaya fund would also be completed in the same month. Mr. Dubey said that the rail underbridge at Tarfile near the Gulbarga Railway Station, taken up at a cost of Rs. 3.9 crore, would be completed by September and the second entry to the Gulbarga Railway Station would be completed on August 31.
The Railways also proposes to take up the work on a road overbridge to replace the level crossing at Hirapur and Balram Chowk in Chittapur at an estimated cost of Rs. 56 crore. The Gangapur Road Railway Station would be developed and a foot overbridge would be constructed at an estimated cost of Rs. 5.5 crore.
Pitline and Fourth platform at Gulbarga Railway Station will be commissioned in September
Mr. Dubey said that the Railways had completed the work on constructing a pit-line for carriage maintenance of 26 coaches in Gulbarga Railway Station at a cost of Rs. 6.21 crore and provided cover over platform in the first platform at the Gulbaga Railway Station at a cost of Rs. 54.64 lakh. The Railways had started using bio-diesel at Wadi Railway Consumer Depots.
Gulbarga-Hyderabad Inter-city Express resumes service
Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu flagged off the Gulbarga-Hyderabad Inter-city Express through a video link from the Secunderabad Railway Station on Monday. He was joined by Medical Education Minister Sharanprakash Patil at the Gulbarga Railway Station.
The same train was inaugurated without any official function in February. But the service was discontinued after a month owing to lack of response from passengers. Major reasons for this were the unsuitable departure timing of the train from the Gulbarga and Hyderabad railway stations and the decision by the Railways not to provide halts at Chittapur, Malkhed and Sedam stations.
No official reason was given for the flagging of the train for the second time. The schedule of the train and halts remain the same. Senior officials did not give any reason for not changing them.
Dr. Patil said that the timing should be changed to suit the requirement of passengers and the Railways should provide halts at Chittapur, Malkhed and Sedam stations. Basavaraj Patil Sedam, MP, said that he had discussed the issue with the Railway Minister. He also demanded that the Railway Ministry start the work of setting up a railway divisional headquarters in Kalaburagi.
The former Minister Qamarul Islam expressed his happiness over the resumption of the train and wanted more halts and a change in the timing.
The train would start at 10.15 a.m. in Kalaburagi and reach Hyderabad at 2.50 p.m. While returning, the train will leave Hyderabad at 4 p.m. and reach Kalaburagi at 9 p.m.
The train will stop at Shahabad, Wadi, Tandur, Vikarabad, and Lingampally.
This train will have one AC chair car, and 10 coaches of second class reserved coaches.
Divisional Railway Manager of Central Railways at Solapur Ajai Kumar Dubey was present.
The train was inaugurated in February, but the service was discontinued

Suggestion How to increase the Revenue of Indian Railways & passenger safety
(1)Instead of TTE railway has to deploy Running POLICE Force CUM TTE . this will provide safety to passengers their belonging as they are trend for this & and reduce salary burden on railways also.
(2)To reduce Corruption in Emergency and VIP quota tickets Tatkal Fare should be charged
(3)Instead to Issue Free Travel Passes to its employees Railway have to Reimburse the Fare to their employees policy should be adopted for better management of Expenditure
(4)In all Railway station Entry & Exit gate Should be under CCTV surveillance for passenger safety & Identify terrorist threats, to control Law & Order , Control theft in trains
(5)Online platform ticket SMS based should be made available through Mobile app/ Internet /ticket vending machine.
Platform tickets should be made compulsory
(6) On pre booking at the time of reservation on chargeable basis Bed Rolls to Sleeper class passenger should also be provided
(7)Free RO Drinking water facility should be provided on platforms
(8)Free wi-fi facility should be provided at station to excess IRCTC site, Health site, Emergency Services, Tour&Travel sites etc.
(9)Number of 3rd AC coaches should be increased to keep up with demand & on the demand basis increase Number of Couches upto 24 instead of Increasing number of trains.

I thought that the track laying was fully completed but its not, last week I was going towards Armoor by bus, the rail over bridge near Ankapur Village that passes over NH 16 is still under construction(half done). The railway track on either side of the road is laid except that they have to connect it over the bridge once its done. And the railway stations at Ankapur and may be some other places are to be constructed. I think it may take more 4 to 6 months for sure to make this line fully completed.

1. I didn't see any major upgradation or arrangement yet, except the installation of two lifts on the right sided FoB and water booths on all the platforms.
2. Its a rumor that there may be construction of 1 or 2 more platforms ( or may be tracks) which may be easily accessible from the rear entrance. However this is uncertain as there is no official news.
3. According to the recent news multi-functional food courts may come up at PF 1 (the complexes are already constructed but not functional yet).
Major parking space to be made
5. New Ticket vending machine installed ( direct money operated ), already there were 3 to 4 smart card ATVM's.
6. The security at the station has been tightened to such an extent that ab station me agar bina ticket k gaye to wapas bahar nahi aaoge. :)
