To expedite the execution of Railway projects in Karnataka, Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has recently written to Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to take appropriate action for easing various bottlenecks. Land acquisition issues, as well as delay in obtaining clearances from the Ministry of Environment and Forest and Climate Change (MoEF & CC), are cited as reasons holding up completion of various projects. The letter states that new line, gauge conversion and doubling works are among infrastructure projects being undertaken along with transmission line works for electrification projects in the state.

17 different projects which have been delayed due to various issues, the letter states that Railways has taken up projects on cost sharing basis with government of Karnataka. “The state government has to deposit its share of Rs 510.9 crore for 2018-2019 and further deposit their share for 2019-2020,” it said. To take the matter forward, the General Manager of South Western Railway, Ajay Kumar Singh, had on July 9 written to Chief Secretary T M Vijaya Bhaskar asking for a meeting with Principal Secretaries of the state “for knowing the current status of the issues and to set the ball rolling for early clearances.” In his response to the letter, the Chief Secretary told The New Indian Express, “I have asked my office to schedule an appointment within this month with Railway officials to discuss the issues.” Of the 21 issues cited as major pending ones, four deal with clearances to be procured from the forest department while 17 of them require the state to acquire the required land. Among the key projects are: Hotgi-Kudgi-Gadag doubling (only 14.65 acres of 123.83 acres handed over so far); Hospet-Hubballi-Londa-Tinaighat-Vasca Da Gama doubling (25.83 acres of land requiring forestry clearance in Uttara Karnataka district); Hubballi-Chikajajur (only 29 acres handed over out of 88.16 acres needed); Yelahanka-Penukonda doubling (only 2.35 acres handed over out of 4.61 acres). Other projects awaiting sizeable portions of land are : Arsikere-Tumukuru doubling, Miraj-Londa doubling, Gadag-Wadi new line, Tumukuru-Chitradurga Davangere new line, Rayadurga-Tumukuru via Kalyandurga new line, Munirabad-Mehaboobnagar new line, Bagalkot-Kudachi new line, Hubballi-Ankola new line, Bangalore-Chamrajanagar/Satyamangalam new line, Chikmangalur-Sakleshpur new line, Whitefield-Kolar new line, Shivamogga-Harihar new line and Marikuppam-Kuppam new line. The letter specifies expedition of these two electrification projects: Hospet-Bellary-Guntakal which is being taken up by RVNL where a transmission line running to a length of 3 km has to be put in place. Out of total 16 tower locations, eight foundations and four tower erections have been completed, it says. The Chikjajur-Bellary electrification project awaits estimates to be sent by the Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited.
State says, center not releasing funds, counter part center says state is slow in clearing hurdles...politics and thats it. For any state to develop fast, center and state govts must be same party, else finger pointing continues and projects get stuck in queue for decades. Yet disappointed that Blore - Tumkur - Hubli - Miraj - Pune electrification is not mentioned
Bengaluru - Miraj electrification has got allocations in pink book - 2019-20 under 3 projects viz., Chikkabanavara - Hubballi, Londa - Miraj, Hosapete - Hubballi - Vasco Da Gama (Hubballi - Londa section is included in this project)

Was there any specific reason to make it tatkal special?....Railways could have run it as normal express train as well. It would have been good for passengers. But a very good opportunity for SWR to ensure good occupancy and thereby good revenues From SBC to BGM 3AC diff of fares between this train and Rani Chennama is about Rs 300-Rs 350....though time taken is more or less same.
Yes it should have been normal express / Super Fast train but Tatkal special is profit for Railways as this train have good demand.. Hope in future they make it just normal SF train. Yes RC and this train price will be more due to SF +Tatkal Special..
Right, in this tatkal special, senior citizen concession cannot be availed, plus cancellation charges will be more, etc. Overall nowadays railways look to make profit, If service is good, then profit can be made, else not useful.
