🙏 from february 15th they saying that opening soon but till now even now also not saying any date because of of pm's appointment also not opening even pm done many things(openings) in indian railways in between this time
It is better to start operating trains from the new terminal from 1 April on experimental basis.Online inauguration is feasible, and there should be no further delay in opening station ASAP
I have heard that along with this new terminal which is probably one of its kind AC terminal, there are also plans to lay foundation for the suburban rail project as well. Since these are big ticket projects for Bangalore they want to to get maximum mileage. Online inaugration may not gove them the visibility hence maybe they are wating for it to be inaugrated personally !!!
The railway station has been provided with enhanced passenger amenities, adequate parking spaces, beautiful landscape, and infrastructure.
