Why there is no change in timings of these trains after the route is changed? Is the distance same as Tumkur ASK route or less?

Hindi beda in Namma Metro, say Kannada activists
Bengaluru: A day after social media buzzed with protests alleging hegemony of the Hindi language in Namma Metro announcements, signage, display boards at stations etc, the Kannada Development Authority (KDA) issued a show cause notice to Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRC) MD Pradeep Singh Kharola.
The Authority says that BMRCL is a state-owned company and has violated various notifications in using Kannada and promoting the local language, and that the use of Hindi is "not necessary" in its premises. However, BMRCL is not a

state-owned company, but a joint venture between the Centre and state.
The notification further says: "It is a contempt of court order in which the government says usage of three languages is okay only if it is a central government agency. Since BMRCL is under the state's jurisdiction, it is not necessary to use or impose Hindi. It is sidelining Kannada. BMRCL must send an explanation in a week."
KDA focuses on implementation of Kannada in the administration of various state government agencies and allied institutions.
On Twitter, the language debacle started on Wednesday evening when a set of pro-Kannada groups slammed BMRCL for using Hindi signage and announcements in its premises, saying a third language (Hindi) is not mandatory. They even compared Namma Metro with Delhi Metro which uses only two languages — English and Hindi. Using the hashtag NammaMetroHindiBeda, the campaign quickly kicked up a storm and became one of the most trending topics.
Some Twitter users even went to the extent of saying they don't want even English to be used on signage, and only Kannada is enough.
The social media campaign started by Banavasi Balaga, a group of Kannada language crusaders, said they are not against Hindi or Hindi speaking people but don't want the imposition of Hindi through Namma Metro.
However, Kharola clarified to TOI, "We are using Hindi as per instructions of the government of India. Hindi signboards are used in some stations, depending on the time we received the direction from the Centre. We will wait for the Centre and state to guide us further."
TOI also found that not all stations have signboards bearing the Hindi name, except for a few including MG Road, Byappanahalli, Indiranagar, Swami Vivekananda, Chickpet etc.
However SG Siddharamaiah, chairperson of KDA said, "In Bengaluru, after Kannada, there are a maximum number of Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam speakers, then Gujarati, but the Hindi speaking population is only about 2%. So BMRCL should include Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam also. Basically, the three-language policy is valid for central agencies like the Railways, post offices and PSUs. It is anti-constitution to impose Hindi and not give priority to Kannada. Tomorrow, even the BMTC might use Hindi and say they've got directions from the Centre."
ANGST STORM
@MallikaBulusu #NammaMetroHindiBeda Yes it is NammaMetro, Hindi Beda. Signage should be in the local language and English. "Kannada and English for NammaMetro

The controversy over the use of Hindi in Namma Metro stations and in their announcements is not new. In 2015, a different organisation had raised similar issues. Interestingly, this time, the campaign only started after the launch of services on the Green Line between Sampige Road and Yelachanahalli.
Mixed signage
Several stations across Phase I have mixed signage, where combinations of Kannada and English or all three languages are used.
However,
...

the practice seems random as there are some entry points into the stations where there are signboards in all three languages while some do not.
According to experts, BMRCL was largely sticking to the three-language policy for station names outside the stations while it stuck to using Kannada and English within station premises.
Several exceptions
But there are several exceptions to this policy as well. Some entry and exit points in stations do not use Hindi at all, like the Cubbon Park station, but some have Hindi signs both outside and within the stations as well, such as M.G. Road and National College.
The apparent lack of a strict protocol or pattern seems to have led users to raise questions over language, argued an expert.
Passengers also pointed out that the announcements onboard Metro trains were mostly in Kannada and English while there were sudden Hindi announcements, in some trains, for instructions like not smoking, eating and staying away from doors. All signages inside coaches though are only in Kannada and English.
