BENGALURU: To make good for the delay in introduction of a suburban rail service, the Bangalore Railway Division recently announced a list of trains to partially cover a segment of the proposed suburban route. In this connection, two Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) services to Whitefield will be run at timings convenient to IT professionals from January 17.
According to railway sources, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will be coming to the city to flag off these services along with three services from here to Ramanagara on January 16. “The trains will be flagged off on January 16 evening and will run a short trip. The actual commercial run will begin the next morning (January 17),” they said.

of the services will run exclusively to Whitefield while the second service will stop at Whitefield enroute Kuppam. Three pairs of trains to Ramanagara, two of them evening trains, will also be launched on that day.
The MEMU to Whitefield will leave Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna railway station at 8.45 am and reach Whitefield at 9.40 am. In the return direction, it will leave Whitefield at 10.30 am and reach KSR at 11.10 am. The second train will leave KSR at 11.20 am and reach Kuppam at 1.45 pm. It will leave Kuppam at 2.45 pm and return to KSR at 5.20 pm. The trains will stop at Cantonment, Bengaluru East, Baiyappanahalli, KR Puram and Hoodi stations in both directions.
“With the Suburban Draft Policy making the state government solely responsible for putting in place a suburban network and calling for new infrastructure solely for suburban trains, Railways is now relived of playing the key role in putting in place the suburban service,” added a railway official.
The services between KSR and Ramanagara will have stops at Nayandahalli, Kengeri, Hejjala and Bidadi.
The timings of the proposed morning service is as follows: leave KSR at 5.20 am and reach Ramanagara at 6.15 am; In the return direction, leave Ramanagaram at 7 am and KSR at 8.40 am.

সুদর্শন, প্রতিভাবান রবীন্দ্রনাথের কনে পাওয়া কি চাট্টিখানি কথা। উদ্যোগী দুই বৌঠান জ্ঞানদানন্দিনী দেবী, কাদম্বরী দেবী, ভাইঝি ইন্দিরা দেবী। ঠাকুর পরিবারের পাল্টি ঘর পিরালী ব্রাহ্মণদের আড্ডা ছিল যশোরের নরেন্দ্রপুর গ্রামে। জ্ঞানদানন্দিনীর বাপের বাড়ি সেখানেই। গ্রামের সব মেয়েরাই যে আগেভাগে শ্বশুরবাড়ি চলে যাবে কে জানতো। শেষে যশোর পেরিয়ে খুলনায় খোঁজ। পাত্রী ভবতারিনী অজানা অচেনা নয়। ঠাকুর এস্টেটের সেরেস্তা বেণীমাধব রায়চৌধুরী আর তাঁর স্ত্রী দাক্ষায়ণী দেবীর কন্যা। খুলনা শহর থেকে ১৯ কিলোমিটার দূরে ফুলতলা। আরও তিন কিলোমিটার এগোলে দক্ষিণডিহি। সেখানে ছুটলেন দুই বৌঠান। দাদা জ্যোতিরিন্দ্রনাথ, ভ্রাতুষ্পুত্র সুরেন্দ্রনাথ। রবীন্দ্রনাথ বাদ। রবীন্দ্রনাথের যাওয়াটা দরকার ছিল। লজ্জায় হবু শ্বশুরবাড়ির পথ মাড়াননি। বিয়ে করতেও তিনি শ্বশুরবাড়ি যাননি। ভবতারিনী চলে আসেন জোড়াসাঁকোর মহর্ষি ভবনে। বিবাহ পর্ব সেখানেই চুকে যায়। ভবতারিনীর নাম পাল্টে রবীন্দ্রনাথ দেন মৃণালিনী। তখন খুলনায় যাওয়া আসা চলত জলপথেই। খুলনা-কলকাতার যোগাযোগ বজরাতেই। রেল বা সড়ক পথ কোথায়। সত্যজিৎ রায়ের 'অপুর সংসার' এর অপুর বিয়েও খুলনায়। নিমন্ত্রণ রক্ষা করতে গিয়ে নিজেই বর সেজে বিয়ের পিঁড়িতে বসে পড়ে অপু।...

বন্ধু ফুলুর সঙ্গে কলকাতা থেকে খুলনা যাত্রা নৌকাতেই।
অপুর শ্বশুরবাড়ি সিনেমার। রবীন্দ্রনাথের শ্বশুরালয় বাস্তব। এখনও আছে। বাংলাদেশ সরকার রক্ষণাবেক্ষণে যত্নবান। দোতলা বাড়ির নীচে চারটে ঘর। ওপরে দু'টো। চিলেকোঠায় গ্যালারি। শৌচাগারটি বাড়ির পেছনে। ১৮৮৩-তে রবীন্দ্রনাথের বিয়ে বাইশ বছর বয়সে। মৃণালিনীর বয়স তখন মাত্র নয়। তাঁর জন্ম ধরা হয় ১৮৭৪-এর ১ মার্চ। বিয়ের পর মৃণালিনী দেবী কতবার বাপের বাড়ি গেছেন তার রেকর্ড নেই। ঘন ঘন যে রবীন্দ্রনাথকে ছেড়ে যেতে পারতেন না সেটা নিশ্চিত। সংসার আগলে বসেছিলেন।
১৯৯৫ পর্যন্ত অন্যের ভোগদখলে থাকা বাড়িটি ১৯৯৯ তে রবীন্দ্র কমপ্লেক্সের স্বীকৃতি পায়। তিন একর ১৪ শতক জায়গা জুড়ে স্মৃতির স্পর্শ। রবীন্দ্রনাথ-মৃণালিনী দেবীর ছবির সমারোহ। লাইব্রেরিও আছে। বাড়িটি আগে ছিল টিনের চালের। সংস্কারের পর আধুনিক হয়ে ওঠে। কলকাতা থেকে গিয়ে এ বার সব কিছু স্বচক্ষেই দেখা যেতে পারে। নদী পথে যাওয়ার দরকার নেই। বাস, ট্রেন দুই-ই পাওয়া যাবে। বাসের ট্রায়াল রান শুরু হয়ে গেছে। গত ১ জানুয়ারি থেকেই ট্রেন চলাচলের কথা ছিল। শুল্ক-অভিবাসন দফতরের পরিকাঠামোর কাজ শেষ না হওয়ায় একটু দেরি হবে। ফেব্রুয়ারিতেই যাতে চলতে পারে তার চেষ্টা হচ্ছে।
খুলনা-কলকাতার দূরত্ব ১৪০ কিলোমিটার। ঘণ্টায় ৬০ কিলোমিটার স্পিডে গেলেও আড়াই ঘণ্টার মধ্যে পৌঁছনোর কথা। তা হবে না। আরও ঘন্টা আড়াই বেশি লাগবে। শুল্ক-অভিবাসন দফতরের চেকিংয়ে সময় যাবে। সীমান্তে পেট্রাপোল-বেনাপোলের চেকপোস্ট। বাসে যেতেও সেখানেই চেকিং। ঢাকা-কলকাতা মৈত্রী এক্সপ্রেস এই রুটেই যাওয়ার কথা ছিল। রাস্তা বদলে গেদে দর্শনা দিয়ে যাচ্ছে। কলকাতা থেকে সরাসরি যে বাস ঢাকায় যায় সে বাস পেট্রাপোল-বেনাপোলে চেকিং হয়। থামে ঘণ্টা দুই। লাঞ্চের জন্য মাগুরায় দাঁড়ায়। মাছ-মুরগির ঝোল ভাত খেতে যতটা সময়। মাঝ রাস্তায় যাত্রী নামার অনুমতি নেই। খুলনা-যশোরের মানুষ কলকাতার সঙ্গে ট্রেন যোগাযোগের আশায় দিন গুনছে। আপাতত সপ্তাহে চার জোড়া ট্রেন চালানোর সিদ্ধান্ত। যাত্রী বাড়লে ট্রেনও বাড়ান হবে।

Passengers waiting for a local service between Pune and Daund might soon get a good news as the Central Railway has sent a proposal to start MEMU service (mainline electric multiple unit) between the two cities which is likely to bring relief to those staying in the suburbs and visit Pune everyday for job or other work.
Central Railway General Manager D K Sharma, who visited the Pune Division and conducted an inspection of the newly electrified Pune-Daund section, said the CR authorities have sent a proposal to start MEMU service between the two cities.
“Since

the electrication on the Pune-Daund stretch was finally completed last year and trains have started to ply using electrical locomotives, we have also sent a proposal to start six MEMU services on this route which will greatly benefit the rail users in this area. We hope it happens soon, but the decision lies with the rail board,” said Sharma.
He said the Central Railway was taking special efforts to make sure that the trains run on time so that passengers don’t have to go through hardhips.
“We have gone in a big way for electrification and the process have sped up in recent year. Within next three to four years all the major electrication projects within the Central Railway zone will be completed,” said Singh.

BENGALURU: Without any fanfare, the Bengaluru Railway Division launched a Rail Bus service between Yeshwantpur and Nelamangala nearly four months ago. This bus on a railway track has helped the Railways slash losses at least on one passenger train.
Poor patronage was the reason Railways wanted to pull the plug on the DEMU train running between these two stations for nearly a year. “The train with eight coaches did not have enough occupancy even in one full coach. We even had a day when only 16 passengers travelled in the train that could accommodate 1,600 passengers,” said a top railway official.

Divisional Operations Manager K V Gopinath told Express, “There was just one Rail Bus in our Division that was running between Bangarpet and Kolar some years ago. It used to run jam-packed due to the huge rush between these areas. Hence, we exchanged the Rail Bus service there with the DEMU between Yeshwantpur and Nelamangala.”
The Rail Bus, the only such vehicle running in the Bengaluru Division, had its first run on September 12, 2016. It is a miniature version of a train and comprises just one coach. The engine, driver and guard are all accommodated inside the coach and it has to adhere to all the rules followed by trains, the official said.
The Rail Bus runs on all days of the week. It leaves Yeshwantpur at 7.30 am and reaches Nelamangala at 8.15 am. In the return direction, it leaves Nelamangala at 8.45 am and reaches Yeshwantpur at 9.40 am.
The reduction in losses on one particular passenger train is not maintained. “We do not maintain records of every single passenger train. All passenger trains are loss-making ventures due to the subsidised ticket fare. We can safely say that the Rail Bus has definitely slashed the loss figures incurred on this specific route via the passenger service,” the official added.
The Rail Bus currently runs at occupancy figures ranging between 60 and 70 percent. It goes full on some busy days, he said.
