To expedite the execution of Railway projects in Karnataka, Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has recently written to Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to take appropriate action for easing various bottlenecks.
Land acquisition issues, as well as delay in obtaining clearances from the Ministry of Environment and Forest and Climate Change (MoEF & CC), are cited as reasons holding up completion of various projects.
The letter states that new line, gauge conversion and doubling works are among infrastructure projects being undertaken along with transmission line works for electrification projects in the state.

17 different projects which have been delayed due to various issues, the letter states that Railways has taken up projects on cost sharing basis with government of Karnataka.
“The state government has to deposit its share of Rs 510.9 crore for 2018-2019 and further deposit their share for 2019-2020,” it said.
To take the matter forward, the General Manager of South Western Railway, Ajay Kumar Singh, had on July 9 written to Chief Secretary T M Vijaya Bhaskar asking for a meeting with Principal Secretaries of the state “for knowing the current status of the issues and to set the ball rolling for early clearances.”
In his response to the letter, the Chief Secretary told The New Indian Express, “I have asked my office to schedule an appointment within this month with Railway officials to discuss the issues.”
Of the 21 issues cited as major pending ones, four deal with clearances to be procured from the forest department while 17 of them require the state to acquire the required land.
Among the key projects are: Hotgi-Kudgi-Gadag doubling (only 14.65 acres of 123.83 acres handed over so far); Hospet-Hubballi-Londa-Tinaighat-Vasca Da Gama doubling (25.83 acres of land requiring forestry clearance in Uttara Karnataka district); Hubballi-Chikajajur (only 29 acres handed over out of 88.16 acres needed); Yelahanka-Penukonda doubling (only 2.35 acres handed over out of 4.61 acres).
Other projects awaiting sizeable portions of land are : Arsikere-Tumukuru doubling, Miraj-Londa doubling, Gadag-Wadi new line, Tumukuru-Chitradurga Davangere new line, Rayadurga-Tumukuru via Kalyandurga new line, Munirabad-Mehaboobnagar new line, Bagalkot-Kudachi new line, Hubballi-Ankola new line, Bangalore-Chamrajanagar/Satyamangalam new line, Chikmangalur-Sakleshpur new line, Whitefield-Kolar new line, Shivamogga-Harihar new line and Marikuppam-Kuppam new line.
The letter specifies expedition of these two electrification projects: Hospet-Bellary-Guntakal which is being taken up by RVNL where a transmission line running to a length of 3 km has to be put in place.
Out of total 16 tower locations, eight foundations and four tower erections have been completed, it says. The Chikjajur-Bellary electrification project awaits estimates to be sent by the Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited.

State says, center not releasing funds, counter part center says state is slow in clearing hurdles...politics and thats it. For any state to develop fast, center and state govts must be same party, else finger pointing continues and projects get stuck in queue for decades. Yet disappointed that Blore - Tumkur - Hubli - Miraj - Pune electrification is not mentioned

KOLAR/BENGALURU: A new railway line, sanctioned between Marikuppam in Karnataka and Kuppam in Andhra Pradesh six years ago, is stuck due to land acquisition issues with the neighbouring state. With land problems in Karnataka getting resolved in December 2018, the Railways has just handed over Rs 17.66 crore to Andhra Pradesh as advance compensation for their land, to speed up the process.
The 23.88-km Broad Gauge line connecting the two states was sanctioned in the Railway budget 2012-2013, with the project cost estimated to be Rs 279.54 crore. It runs 5.7km in Karnataka and the remaining 18km in Andhra Pradesh. Two railway stations, Virupakshpura and Dravid University, will come up on the Kuppam-Marikuppam line.
The

line, when completed, will offer much relief to those residing in Bangarpet, KGF, Kuppam and Marikuppam, as it offers an alternative route to goods trains.
Chief Engineer, Constructions, of South Western Railway (SWR) zone, Alok Tiwari told TNIE, “We acquired 70.5 acres of land needed within Karnataka in November 2018, and preliminary work has already begun. Altogether, 49.71 acres were handed over by Bharat Gold Mines Limited, and 22 acres by the state government.”
The Railways is yet to gain possession of 220 acres of land required in Andhra Pradesh, he added.
SWR General Manager Ajay Kumar Singh said, “We paid a compensation amount of Rs 17.66 crore to the Deputy Commissioner in Chittoor last week, in connection with this land.”
Tiwari said that the acquisition did not prove exorbitant as the land required was in a remote hilly area, with some of it passing through the forest too.
Kolar MP and former Union Minister for Railways K H Muniyappa said the line would be ready within two years. Muniyappa visited Marikuppam with his daughter and KGF MLA Roopakala Shashidhar, and Singh on Saturday, to inspect work.

Tamil Nadu may soon get another UDAY Express as the Southern Railway is planning to replace the Chennai-Bengaluru double-decker Express with UDAY coaches. At the same time, the first UDAY Express between Coimbatore and Bengaluru is likely to commence operation on March 15.
The decision to provide another Utkrisht Double-Decker Air-conditioned Yatri (UDAY) Express was taken in the backdrop of complaints over the poor quality of double-decker coaches due to design and maintenance.
Particularly, the railways is unable to redress complaints or it is unable to replace the coaches probably due to lack

of spares. Technical constraints in power generating system have made the maintenance an uphill task. “The 10 coaches of Chennai-Bengaluru DD AC Express would be phased out in a few months. Mostly the train will be upgraded as UDAY Express,” said a senior railway official. The double-decker train was introduced on April 25, 2013, with 10 coaches and the number of coaches was later reduced to nine.
The official added that the Rail Coach Factory (RCF), Kapurthala, has manufactured a new set of double-decker rakes and if those were allotted to the SR, they would be refurbished as UDAY Express. The UDAY coaches are double-decker AC coaches with the provisions of LCD passenger information system, Wi-Fi, modular toilets and anti-graffiti vinyl wrappings interior and exteriors. In addition, the coaches will have dining space in the middle-deck area with provision of automatic vending machines for tea, milk and coffee. Railway sources said the proposal were also aimed at easing the constraints faced at the Basin Bridge yard in maintaining double-decker coaches.
“The rake of Coimbatore-Bengaluru UDAY Express is likely to be linked with proposed Chennai-Bengaluru UDAY Express. Spare coaches will ease hurdles in maintenance,” added the official. Though capacity of a double-decker coach is 120, the first four coaches will have 104 seats as 16 seats are removed to set the mini-pantry and dining area.
