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.

Close on the heels of extension of Chennai-Bengaluru Express and Hubballi-Bengaluru Vishwamanava Express to Mysuru, the Railways has extended the Kacheguda-Bengaluru Express also to Mysuru.
With the latest extension, Mysuru will have two direct trains to Hyderabad, the other being the Mysuru-Jaipur Express. As in case of the two other trains, the Kacheguda Express will also be extended up to Ashokapuram which is emerging as a second major terminal and will help reduce congestion of the main Mysuru city station.
As per the schedule, train number 12785 Kacheguda-Bengaluru Express will depart

from Kacheguda at 7.05 p.m. to reach Bengaluru at 6.25 a.m. It will depart from Bengaluru at 6.40 a.m. to reach Mysuru at 9.40 a.m. and depart for Ashokapuram at 9.50 a.m. to reach the destination at 10.05 a.m.
In the return direction, train number 12786 will depart from Ashokapuram at 2.05 a.m; reach Mysuru at 2.20 p.m; depart for Bengaluru at 2.45 .m. to reach Bengaluru at 5.45 p.m. It will depart from Bengaluru at 6.20 p.m. and reach Kacheguda at 5.40 a.m. Consequently, the timing of train number 56237 Mysuru-Bengaluru Passenger has been changed and it will depart at 1.45 p.m. instead of 2.45 .m. Also, train number 16235 Tuticorin-Mysuru Express will arrive at 10.10 a.m. instead of 9.45 a.m.
Mysuru MP Pratap Simha said this will provide the people of Mysuru a daily train service to Hyderabad and give a fillip to both tourism and business, besides providing additional train connectivity to Bengaluru. The train will run as a super fast service between Bengaluru and Kacheguda in both directions and as an ordinary express train between Bengaluru and Ashokapuram.
The date of introduction will be announced in due course. Sources in the Railways said the authorities are keen to revamp and upgrade the Ashokapuram station to cater to the public including completing the foot over bridge and relocating the entrance.

i guess 12735 is not so feasible considering the TAT required and also being a full AC ....if they can workout a way to change the return slot of 12736 (which is highly unlikely as if it is starting late from SBC...it will cause ripple effect on 22691 occupancy between sbc-sc also ) by making it start a little later than the current departure and make it work like a complete AC CC train with a fixed discount price like they did with other trains ..it can work

We have to thank that at least we got Hampi exp & Golgumbaz extensions till Mysuru and got intra-state connection to Ballari, Hosapete, BGK, Vijayapura(though little round about route). Otherwise that slots would also have been snatched off by inter-state trains.

Rs. 20 cr. project to revamp Mysuru Railway Station: MP
Mysuru: For Mysureans, this Sankranti Gift will be a gift to remember. While the extension of Chennai-Mysuru-Chennai Express to Mysuru and Hubballi-Mysuru-Hubballi Vishwamanava Express to Ashokapuram came as good news for thousands of train travellers, the news of Mysuru City Railway Station being revamped at a cost of Rs. 20 crore brought in more cheers.
While flagging off the Vishwamanava Express that will henceforth start from Ashokapuram, Mysuru-Kodagu MP Pratap Simha said at Ashokapuram Railway Station this morning that the Mysuru Railway

Station will be revamped at a cost of Rs. 20 crore and the foundation stone for the renovation will be laid in a couple of days. “The Station will be beautified and more passenger amenities will be added,” he said.
The Ashokapuram Railway Station was constructed in 1891 and from 1924, the tests for meter-gauge trains began. “Today, Ashokapuram Station, around 5 kms from Mysuru Railway Station, is prominently present on the Railway map with thousands of passengers coming here for their journey,” he said.
Pratap Simha said that as an MP he had strived for the improvement of road, rail and air projects in Mysuru region and was successful in bringing many projects. “In the past five years, five new trains from Mysuru to Bengaluru including Bi-Weekly train service to Varanasi, Vishwamanava Express, Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU) train, Chennai-KSR Bengaluru-Chennai Express to Mysuru, Mysuru-Udaipur have been introduced.
Around 30,000 people commute by trains every day in the city. The Chennai-KSR Bengaluru-Chennai Express train service will be very useful to the passengers who travel to Bengaluru in the early morning as super fast express train will depart Mysuru Railway Station at 4.45 am and reach Chennai by 2.30 pm, via Bengaluru, he said.
“It was necessary for me to lobby at the Centre to bring in more trains and air service. Thankfully, Union Ministers Suresh Prabhu, Jayant Sinha and Piyush Goyal extended their full support. Even when the Hubballi Train was to be renamed as Vishwamanava Express to honour poet laureate Kuvempu, the Railway Minister obliged and today we have the train renamed,” he said.
“My vision is that there must be at least one train per hour from Bengaluru to Mysuru and there must be at least 25 flights from Mysore Airport,” the MP said amidst cheers from the crowd. Pratap Simha assured that the Mysore Airport works will be completed within five years. It will emerge as an international airport and this will lead to a good inflow of tourists and create employment opportunity.
In the coming days, extension of Tipu Express and Chamundi Express to Ashokapuram Station will be a reality, he added. “Once the Satellite Terminal Railway Station at Naganahalli becomes a reality, there will be scope for additional trains to Mysuru. He also said that efforts were on to extend Kacheguda Express to Mysuru city,” he revealed.
Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) Aparna Garg, Senior Divisional Commercial Manager Hemanth, MLC K.T. Srikantegowda and others were present.
Yesterday when the MP flagged off the inaugural run of Mysuru-Chennai Express from City Railway Station, Mayor Pushpalatha Jagannath, MLCs Sandesh Nagaraj and Marithibbegowda were present.
