Private bus fares shoot up as demand rises with too few trains to cater to festival rush in Karnataka
The festival rush during Dasara, combined with the mid-term holidays for educational institutions, does not seem to augur well for train travellers. The South Western Railway (SWR) plans to operate only three special trains during September/October within Karnataka.This is despite the recent statement of Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha that nearly 4,000 special trains would be operated across the country during Dasara/Deepavali.However, private bus operators have been quick to cash in on the opportunity and have jacked up fares during the festival and a long weekend that follows. Minimum fares range from ₹1,000 to ₹3,000 during the Vijayadashami-Gandhi Jayanti extended-weekend, between

Bengaluru and many important cities in Karnataka.Rohith Jain, General Secretary of SWR Passengers’ Committee, Davangere, said special trains were needed from Kalaburagi, Belagavi, Karwar and Raichur to Mysuru via Bengaluru during the holidays.S. Yogendra from Mysuru Grahakara Parishat said that while many travel within the State during long weekends, no special trains are operated even though KSRTC operates plenty of specials. In contrast, Mr. Yogendra said, SWR has been operating a weekend Tatkal fare special between Yeshwantpur and Visakhapatnam Junction since October 2016.
He wondered why SWR does not extend similar facilities in Karnataka and added that the standard reply is “shortage of coaches/rakes” when it comes to running special trains in Karnataka. Though SWR operates Yeshwantpur-Phandarapur-Yeshwantpur Weekly Tatkal Special connecting Hubballi and Belagavi, it is not of much use as the train leaves Yeshwantpur on Thursdays and Pandarapur on Fridays.
The SWR spokesperson said the total number of special trains within Karnataka (8) amounted to 57% of all special trains operated by SWR (14). However, five of the eight counted as “special” trains in Karnataka have long been in operation like regular trains and is not run as a special for the festival holidays, countered Mr. Yogendra.

SWR runs spl to Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Andhra, Telangana, Maharashtra, Orissa, West Bengal but not inside Karnataka. And I don't know why Kannur Exp is their favorite train. Back in 2013, It's entire rake was replaced with all new 2013 made coaches. Now, it has got LHB. Recently they have added some extra coaches to that train. I want to know the reason why SWR pampers that train!!

That's the heft of KL politicians.
- Split that Karwar train to Kannur.
- Got LHB rakes for via SA train.
- Within no time got an extra UR coach, more than allotted. The fact that UR LHB coaches are rarely allotted, forget extra....
ex:

1. BZA-DMM tri-weekly, yet to get a single LHB UR coach, a year since inauguration.
2. Ahmedabad weekly got just 1 UR, being a long distance train.

@all:
There are some changes coming to the PNR Forum.
1. All PNRs will be anonymized, i.e. you won't see who posted the PNRs or search PNRs by Traveller. This is to better protect the confidentiality of travelling members and their travel plans. However, members will still be able to search their OWN posted PNRs, just like now.
.
2.
...
more...
"Linked PNR Entry#" in the Trip Diary will be seen ONLY by the member who posted the PNR. The reason for this is the same as the above. You will not be able to directly link members to PNR Entries.
.
3. The "Post PNR" link will be removed. Waitlisted/Confirmed PNRs will AUTOMATICALLY be posted for Prediction (without the name of the member who posted the PNRs). The reason for this is that the extra "Post PNR" link is not understood by new site visitors, and so they never post their PNRs for prediction. Once again, posted PNRs will be masked, and anonymized.
.
4. Due to the above change, the number of PNRs available for prediction/stamp will increase. But it is NOT compulsory to predict ALL PNRs. Just predict whatever trains you feel confident about. Same thing with stamping. IRI members are encouraged to participate here AFTER their important priorities are taken care of.
.
5. PNR Prediction details will automatically be seen within the PNR Status page - this is just for convenience. Every time a member/guest checks the latest status of his/her PNR, prediction data will be available under the "PNR Status".
.
Thanks.

True that. It's one of the loopholes.
One way is that, once the PNR gets confirmed, don't show the coach no. and seat no. Just display 'Confirmed'.

This train has only 3 Sleeper coaches but 350+ WL tickets are being issued. It makes the coaches over crowded, and passengers have to travel in inhuman conditions, as worst as GN coaches. Isn't any rule there for maximum allowed WL Booking per coach.
