After cancelling the bids called in October 2018 for the doubling of Baiyappanahalli-Hosur (48 km) and Yeshwantpur-Channasandra (21.7 km) railway lines, the authorities have called new tenders for civil and electrification works. 
The two lines form an important network for the suburban rail as they connect the IT corridors in the southern and eastern parts of Bengaluru to the northern and central parts.
Urban transport activists have long pointed out that doubling the lines will allow the railways to run more local trains and ease the traffic congestion in the city without having

to wait for the full-fledged suburban rail project. 
The latest tenders have been issued by the Rail Infrastructure Development Company (Karnataka) Limited, known as K-RIDE. The tenders split the key pieces of work on the two lines into different segments and packages. 
The tenders cover the supply of ballast, fabrication and assembling of glued joints, flash butt welding and related civil works.
The electrical engineering department of K-RIDE will monitor the electrification work, including design, supply, erection, testing and commissioning of the 25 kV, single-phase overhead equipment for electrification.

SWR should think of linking Hosur line to Jolarpet line -- Heelalige/ Bellandur to Whitefield/ Hoodi. This will give tremendous flexibility to run more trains. Long distance trains like LTT CBE, Kongu can take that line to travel via KJM and to avoid loco reversal. Few more trains like CST NCJ/ TVC can also run via Hosur if such a link is done.

Yes, a by-pass link from Hosur line to Ynk line, will reduce time and loco reversal.

In a relief for thousands of intra-city commuters, especially those working on Outer Ring Road and Electronics City, electrification work between Byappanahalli and Hosur (48km) has been completed.
Electrification of Byappanahalli-Anekal (34km) line was commissioned in March. The commissioner of rail safety (CRS) on Thursday inspected the remaining section between Anekal and Periyanaganthunai stations and cleared it for traffic. Electrification work between Periyanaganthunai and Omalur is expected to be completed by March 2021.
Bengaluru divisional railway manager Ashok Kumar Verma said CRS inspection was successfully completed. “This will help operate Memu services on

the Byappanahalli-Hosur section. We will also convert conventional trains into Memu services between Bengaluru and Hosur. The 16-coach Memu rake has much more capacity compared to a conventional train,” he said.
Electrification of the section is expected to reduce travel time by 5-10%. In 2017, Rail Vikas Nigam Limited had floated tenders for electrification of the 196-km Byappanahalli-Omalur (via Hosur) single-line section.
Trains can travel faster from Yelahanka to Chikkaballapur
The travel time between Yelahanka and Chikkaballapur is expected to reduce with the Bengaluru division on Friday getting the nod for upgrading trains’ sanctioned speed along the 46km section from 75kmph to 100kmph.
South Western Railway raised the maximum permissible speed after a speed trial was conducted at 110kmph on November 5.

Over a month after raising the platform ticket fare at three railway stations, the South Western Railway has done the same at 11 other train stations in the Bengaluru division, starting Wednesday. 
Platform tickets are KR Puram, Bangarpet, Tumakuru, Hosur, Dharmapuri, Kengeri, Mandya, Hindupur, Penukonda, Yelahanka, Banaswadi, Carmelaram and Whitefield railway stations will cost Rs 50 from October 21 to November 10. The hike is to ensure non-travellers do not enter stations in the wake of Covid-19, the SWR said.

Commuters in the city are now demanding the South Western Railway (SWR) run suburban services as tracks are free with most long-distance trains suspended.
Rail activists say this is a chance to operate more trains for suburban commuters, particularly during the peak hours. Regular interstate and suburban services for passengers remain suspended since March 21 due to Covid-19 and SWR is only operating skeletal services now.
SWR had earlier cited congestion at major railway stations and tracks as an excuse not to operate an adequate number of suburban services.

demand for inter-state travel reduced due to the virus scare, many people want the railways to operate suburban services since they are cheaper and faster. Unlike Metro’s AC coaches, the risk of the virus spreading is much lesser in non-AC suburban train coaches. Thousands of people, particularly daily-wage employees from the city’s outskirts and neighbouring districts, are also affected because of the suspension of suburban services. Many are now relying on crowded buses and paying high bus fares to reach Bengaluru.
Rajkumar Dugar, convener, Citizens for Citizens (C4C), said: “The Halt station near the airport is nearing completion so the railways should introduce more trains to and from Devanahalli. SWR should operate trains from places like Tumakuru, Ramanagara, Cantonment, Hosur and Bangarapet towards Devanahalli so the entire city will be covered. This will also connect Metro stations at Byappanahalli, Yeshwantpur and City railway station.”
However, Bengaluru Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) Ashok Kumar Verma said: “We're now operating 20 pairs of trains. A decision to resume suburban services across the country has to be taken by the Union ministry of railways. We're ready to operate trains adhering to social-distancing norms.”
Bengaluru doesn’t have a dedicated suburban rail system unlike Chennai and Mumbai. The 148-km suburban rail project, which has been stuck for 37 years, was made in the 2018-19 Union budget, but the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs is yet to okay it.
The Centre allowed Metro services to operate from September 7 in a graded manner, but no decision has been taken on suburban train services.
“Many daily-wage workers from the city’s outskirts and Tumakuru, Chikkaballapur, Marikuppam, Doddaballapur, Ramanagara, Bidadi and Hosur were dependent on trains to reach Bengaluru, but are now forced to rely on buses and spend more on tickets. Techies can manage working from home but factory workers are the worst hit," Sanjeev Dyamannavar, a rail activist, said.
However, some passengers pointed out social distancing in suburban trains and railway stations is difficult since they lack access control systems like Metro and it's better to take a decision after the situation is brought under control.

Now slowly demand for starting suburban services is coming from everywhere including Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai & other places as well. It will be indeed a challenge to try and balance out the requests and increasing demand at the same time cases are also increasing and experts are saying that probably we have entered second phase.

As all regular trains are cancelled and few special only running, SWR can introduce some local trains on special basis between important stations. Like Ramanagaram to Bangarapet, Whitefield to Chikkabanavara, Kengeri to Yelahanka, YPR to Hosur, SBC to Devanahalli via Cantonment as well as via YPR, YPR to Doddaballapura, SBC to Tumkur, SBC to Kunigal, etc
