Namma Metro has so far earned Rs 1,659 crore from operating trains on four lines with a total length of 48.3 km
Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa has asked the BMRCL to explore newer ways of generating revenue so that it becomes profitable in the near future and cuts down the operational costs. 
At a review meeting on Wednesday, the chief minister, who also holds the portfolio of Bengaluru development, asked the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) to look beyond ticket fares to generate revenue and encourage commercial activities at stations and on premises.

Metro has so far earned Rs 1,659 crore from operating trains on four lines with a total length of 48.3 km. It's building another 66.1 km of metro lines. The BMRCL has so far spent a whopping Rs 33,070 crore on construction.

Metro's daily ridership had reached 6.1 lakh, which earned it a record Rs 1.67 crore. But the corporation's average monthly revenue is just Rs 10.14 crore, Yediyurappa said. 
With the central government having approved the construction of the metro's Phases 2A and 2B (which will link the Silk Board junction with the airport), the chief minister asked Chief Secretary P Ravi Kumar to hold joint meetings with different departments to ensure coordination for the speedy implementation of the projects. 
The chief minister said the tendering for the 21.01-km suburban railway corridor from Baiyappanahalli to Chikkabanavar would be completed by October and directed officials to start the work soon. 
The doubling of Baiyappanahalli-Hosur (48 km) and Yeshwantpur-Channasandra (21.7 km) railway lines has been going on at a cost of Rs 323 crore, he said. He also asked officials to fast-track the construction of 20 railway bridges that will eliminate level crossings.

BENGALURU: The city’s much-awaited suburban rail project seems to be on the right track. Prime Minister
is likely to lay the foundation stone next month.
The Rs 15,657-crore project was cleared by the Centre in October 2020 but no formal announcement was made due to the model code of conduct. “We have sought a date from the Prime Minister’s Office for laying the foundation stone but haven’t received any confirmation till now,” said a source.
Officials
...

say the state government wants the foundation stone to be laid before the BBMP elections and also to operationalise a small section of one of the four corridors before the 2023 assembly polls.
Karnataka Rail Infrastructure Development Enterprises (K-RIDE), a joint venture between the railway ministry and the state government, is supposed to execute the project.
K-RIDE has recruited around 60 staffers so far and is planning to hire more in the next few months.
The government has appointed
(KIADB) as the nodal agency to acquire required land for the project. The 148km project will comprise four corridors: KSR Bengaluru City-Yelahanka-Devanahalli (41km), Byappanahalli-Yeshwantpur-Chikkabanavara (25km), Kengeri-Cantonment-Whitefield (35km) and Heelalige-Yelahanka-Rajanukunte (46km). Work on Byappanahalli-Yeshwantpur-Chikkabanavara and Heelalige-Yelahanka-Rajanukunte is likely to be taken up first.
An official said they are planning to float a tender for ‘station planning’ of 57 stations. “We have already floated tenders for land and geo-technical surveys. Notification for land acquisition will be issued soon. The idea of station planning involves designing stations as commercial hubs and improving integration of suburban rail with other modes. Tenders for civil work will be called by March. The project will be expedited once the PM lays the foundation stone,” said an official.
Inspired by Metro man E Sreedharan’s digital countdown clock in Metro offices, K-RIDE will install one to track the number of days left for the deadline. “We are planning to set up a countdown clock to remind officials to speed up work. We don’t have any competition with BMRCL but hope to make it better than Metro,” he said.

The Centre on Wednesday approved the Bengaluru suburban rail project, estimated to cost around Rs 19,000 crore, and fulfilled a long-pending demand of the IT city.
The Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, approved the 148-km-long project, which is aimed at decongesting Bengaluru, sources in the government told DH.
However, due to the model code of conduct in force for the Assembly byelections in Karnataka, the government deferred its announcement.
When

asked to elaborate on the project at the weekly Cabinet press briefing, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said that due to the code of conduct, he can’t say anything on this issue.
According to the revised DPR, a special purpose vehicle (SPV) will be set up to implement the project and both the Railway Ministry and state government will have equity in it.
The Union government would provide 20% of the equity in the project and facilitate external financial assistance of up to 60% of the project cost. The Karnataka government will have to share the remaining 20% equity.
The suburban rail network will have four corridors: KSR Bengaluru City-Devanahalli, Byappanahalli-Chikkabanavara, Kengeri-Cantonment-Whitefield and Heelalige-Rajanukunte.
The revised project proposes 57 suburban railway stations covering a distance of 148.17 km. Besides dropping at least 24 stations from the original report, the revised DPR has also cut down the number of elevated stations from 31 to 22.
The suburban railway is likely to be fully operational around 2026 since approximately seven years are required for land acquisition and construction.
The suburban rail stations will integrate with at least 10 metro stations including Yeshwantpur, Kengeri, Cantonment, Whitefield, K R Puram, Baiyappanhalli, Jnanabharathi and Nayandahalli. The fare structure will be similar to that of the Metro rail, said sources.
With the suburban rail network providing seamless connectivity to all towns surrounding Bengaluru, it is expected that once it is complete, it would greatly help decongest Bengaluru,  which is facing severe traffic snarls, said an official in the Indian Railways.

transport is most fuel-efficient of all means of transport and is much safer than the road.
Roll-on-Roll-off is a multimodal delivery model have several advantages like faster movement of goods and essentials, reducing time taken by trucks to reach destinations due to traffic congestion in between cities.
It also reduces congestion on the roads, saves precious fuel and reduces carbon footprint.
Bengaluru and Solapur cities are thriving business cities, rich in Agri-products.
Substantial road traffic carrying a large number of commodities moves between these two cities.

In a span of 44-days, the South Western Railway (SWR) ran 233 Shramik special trains transporting more than 3.38 lakh passengers, majority of whom were labourers, to their home towns in 17 States and Union territories of the country.
This ‘service’ has earned SWR Rs 28.9 crore. While the majority of the States receiving the trains have assured of remitting the tickets, and for those States which have not made such commitments, the Karnataka government has decided to foot the bill. Majority of the Rs 28.9 crore has not yet been paid to the SWR.
“The

State government’s have assured of repaying the tickets. Revenue was not the top priority for the railways during the lockdown, but the necessity to transport the stranded people to their home States,” said SWR Central Public Relations Officer E Vijaya and added that a few of the States have already deposited the ticket fares with their respective railway division office.
According to the daily press release, Since May 3, when the first Shramik Express Train commenced its journey from Bengaluru railway station on June 14, SWR has operated 233 trains, majority of which began their journey from Bengaluru division. A total of 195 trains carrying 2.86 lakh passengers were transported from Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna (Bengaluru Station), Bengaluru Cantonment, Chikbanawar and Malur. This was followed by Hubballi division, which operated 21 trains from Hubballi, Hosapete, Bellari and Koppal. Mysuru division saw 12 trains carrying 16,974 passengers depart from Ashokapuram, Kabakaputtur, Hassan and Hosur (Tamil Nadu) to their home districts.
Bihar received a number of trains from Karnataka. As many as 1.07 lakh passengers travelled to various destinations of Bihar in 73 trains. Uttar Pradesh received 51 trains (73,498 passengers) from SWR, followed by West Bengal (27 trains, 40,395 passengers), Jharkhand (21; 30,962), Odisha (16; 24,357), Assam (11; 16,113), while 11 other States received 26 trains with 41,188 passengers. Trains from Karnataka have reached as far as Mizoram, Nagaland and Jammu & Kashmir.
On average, each train carried 1,350 passengers. However, there has also been an exception when the SWR has operated a train from Bengaluru to Guwahati, Assam on June 10 with just 287 passengers followed by Chikbanawar to Udhampur in (J&K union territory) with only 685 passengers on May 17. Whereas a train from Bengaluru cantonment to Balasore in Odisha saw 1,844 passengers travelling.
On 20, May the SWR operated 14 trains to various destination across the country from the three division and transported 21,095 passengers. Similarly, on 17, May SWR had operated 12 trains (16,873 passengers) and 10 trains (13,932 passengers) on May 16. The least number of trains ran on a single day was on June 8 and 14 (one train each, 2350 combined passengers). No trains ran from SWR zone on May 6 and 7.
Meanwhile, SWR received only four Sharmaik expresses from other States. Bengaluru, Hubballi, Yadgir and Vijaypur received one train each. Nearly 1,300 passengers returned to Karnataka in three of these trains.
