The national transporter had converted the old railway station into a museum and developed a new railway station for Arasalu a few metres away from the museum.
Indian Railways’ Arasalu station-turned Malgudi museum saw more than 51,000 visitors in a year. The museum is expected to become one of Karnataka’s tourist destinations, a South Western Railway official confirmed to Financial Express Online. The list of tourist destinations in the state of Karnataka is being revised by the Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation (KSTDC). The popular TV serial ‘Malgudi Days’ based on the collection of short stories by R K Narayan, was shot at British-era Arasalu railway station during the 1980s.

and developed a new railway station for Arasalu a few metres away from the museum.
According to South Western Railways, an amount of Rs 35 lakh was spent on transforming the old Arasalu railway station into the museum. The station has been turned into Malgudi museum without changing its original architecture. The Malgudi museum was opened for the public on 8 August 2020. However, due to lockdown, the museum was closed down for nearly 90 days. The number of visitors to the museum till August 3 was 51,501. For visitors above the age of five, the entrance fee to the museum is Rs 5 only, the South Western Railway zone confirmed.
For more tourists to visit the museum, Indian Railways officials have requested the district administration to set up a bus stop near Arasalu railway station. There are also plans to develop a park there for kids. The park will be equipped with various play things. The South Western Railway zone also said that a cafeteria would be set up there in the coming days. Besides, the visitors have been given free Wi-Fi facilities at the museum. They can use the internet for around half an hour. The South Western Railway will try to provide better facilities at the museum to attract more tourists in the future, the zonal railway added.

राष्ट्रीय उपभोक्ता विवाद निवारण आयोग ने लापरवाही के 10 साल पुराने मामले में भारतीय रेलवे पर 3 लाख रुपए का हर्जाना लगाया है। सितंबर 2010 में भारतीय रेलवे ने लोवर बर्थ होने के बावजूद एक बुजुर्ग यात्री को सीट नहीं दी थी। इसी मामले पर अब कोर्ट ने अपना फैसला सुनाया है।
बुजुर्ग दंपति ने एसी कोच में नीचे बैठकर की थी यात्रा
मीडिया रिपोर्ट्स के अनुसार बुजुर्ग दंपति ने 4 सितंबर 2010 को सोलपुर से बिथूर जाने के लिए सीट बुक कराई थी, दिव्यांग कोटे के बावजूद उन्हें रेलवे ने लोवर बर्थ

नहीं दी थी। इसके बाद दंपत्ति ने टीटी से भी नीचे वाली सीट देने का निवेदन किया पर उसने भी लोवर बर्थ देने से मना कर दिया। अंत में बुजुर्ग नीचे बैठकर यात्रा करने लगे। यह देखकर दूसरे यात्री ने उन्हें अपनी सीट दे दी थी। इसके बाद दंपत्ति ने कोच अटेंडेंट से बिथूर स्टेशन आने पर सूचना देने को कहा। यहां भी लापरवाही करते हुए उन्हें बिथूर से 100 किलोमीटर पहले चिकजाजुर में उतार दिया गया था।
रेलवे का नियम भी तोड़ाः 6 सीट खाली थी पर लोअर बर्थ नहीं दी
भारतीय रेलवे के नियमों के मुताबिक सीनियर सिटीजन यदि अपनी पसंद की सीट ना तय करें तब भी उन्हें लोअर सीट देना जरूरी है। साथ ही ट्रेन में यात्रा के दौरान लोअर बर्थ खाली रहने पर टिकट चेकिंग स्टाफ दिव्यांग, सीनियर सिटीजन या गर्भवती महिला की सीट बदलकर लोअर बर्थ दे सकता है। उस समय ट्रेन में 6 लोअर बर्थ खाली भी थे फिर भी बुजुर्ग दंपत्ति को उनकी जरूरत के अनुसार सीट नहीं दी गई। इस बात को लेकर उन्होंने कोर्ट में मुकदमा दायर किया था और लापरवाही का आरोप लगाते हुए मुआवजे की मांग की थी।
इस मामले में जिला उपभोक्ता फोरम ने रेलवे को 3 लाख 2 हजार मुआवजा और 2500 रुपए केस लड़ने का खर्च देने को कहा था, पर रेलवे ने राज्य आयोग में इसके खिलाफ अपील की। अंत में मामला राष्ट्रीय उपभोक्ता विवाद निवारण आयोग पहुंचा और रेलवे को यहां भी मुआवजा देना पड़ा।

Shimoga Ranebennur and Shimoga Harihar both lines are referred. Doubtful whether Harihar line will be laid. Clarity will help.

Also, Talaguppa Honnavara should be executed to connect Malnad region to Coastal/ Konkan railway.
