Union Minister of State for Agriculture and Farmer Development Shobha Karandlaje, who represents the Udupi-Chikkamagaluru Lok Sabha constituency, requested Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw to merge Konkan Railway Corporation Ltd. (KRCL) with Indian Railways.
"MPs from Karnataka held a meeting with Union Minister For Railways Sri AshwiniVaishnaw Ji. Highlighted the various railway related demands and issues of Udupi-Chikmagalur. The Hon'ble Railway Minister assured of positive action about all the proposals," Shobha Karanlaje tweeted.
KRCL is a joint venture of Indian Railways with Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka and Kerala.
Karandlaje said that Konkan Railway has failed to fulfil the aspirations of coastal Karnataka, and merging it with Indian Railways is a long-pending demand from people.
Karandlaje said KRCL could be brought under South Western Railway (Karnataka-Goa) and Central Railway (Maharashtra).
Railway users from coastal Karnataka allege that KRCL is cancelling the existing services instead of introducing new trains.
They claim that KRCL cancelled the popular Yeshwantpur-Karwar-Yeshwantpur tri-weekly day train between Karwar and Mangaluru Junction to earn a profit by running goods trains, reports The Hindu.
KRCL, with its headquarters at CBD Belapur in Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra, operates Konkan Railway.
The Konkan is a coastal strip of land bounded by the Sahyadri hills on the east and the Arabian Sea on the west.
The Konkan Railway was the missing link between India's commercial capital, Mumbai, and Mangalore. The 741-kilometre line connects Maharashtra, Goa and Karnataka States, a region crisscrossing rivers, plunging valleys and mountains.

The jurisdiction of KR is the reason for the failure of KR in MH, GOA and KA. With no major junctions in its contol, with no pitlines, with dominating neighbouring zones, how can KR survive?
Mangalore in SR, VSG in SWR, no big town in MH under KR.
Only state which got maximum benefit is Kerala. Entire Kerala has atleast two daily trains via Konkan, apart from numerous biweekly, weekly trains.
lost its originating train Mangala to Delhi. Now depends on Mangala Lakshadweep express from ERS with odd timings and odd quota at MAJN / other KR towns of Karnataka.
No train to anywhere in Karnataka, other than just a daily train from Konkan side to Bangalore. No train to Mysore, Mandya, Ballari, Chitradurga, Davangere, Hubli Dharwad, Belgaum, Bagalkot, Bijapur, Raichur, Kalaburagi, Bidar.
No trains to neighbouring states TN, TS, AP, MH, Goa also. Biweekly MAQ TO KCG also plies via SRR, not via UD, KAWR, MAO, UBL.
Let us not count innumerable number of trains running from Kerala to Gujarat, Rajasthan and Delhi, as they have almost zero seats for KR controlled stations of Karnataka.
Why did Karnataka participated in KR Project? To get better connectivity from coastal areas to other cities in Karnataka/ other neighbouring states. But this is not fulfilled.

कोंकण रेलवे पर बनेगा कीर्तिमान
मुंबई,दामोदर व्यास मॉनसून के दिनों में देश के सबसे खूबसूरत रेलवे रूट में से एक है कोंकण रेलवे, जो शुरुआत से ही अपनी उलझनों से परेशान रहा। पहाड़ों की ढलान और ऊंचाइयों पर दौड़ती संभलती ट्रेन कभी चट्टानों के खिसकने, तो कभी ट्रैक पर पेड़ों के गिरने जैसी घटनाओं से दो चार होती रहती है। हर मुसीबत में खुद को संभालने वाले इस 741 किमी के रूट ने हमेशा खुद को अलग से खड़ा किया है। अब खुशी की यह बात है कि कोंकण रेलवे के रूट पर जब हरी चट्टानों के बीच से ट्रेनें गुजरेंगी, तब डीजल इंजन से निकला धुआं हवा में नाचते पेड़ों का दम नहीं घोटेगा। बताया जा रहा है कि इस साल
दिसंबर तक पूरे रूट पर बिजली की तारें खिंच जाएंगी और ट्रेनें करंट की रफ्तार से दौड़ेंगी।कोंकण रेलवे पर बनेगा कीर्तिमानपिछले एक साल में जहां ट्रेनों की दौड़भाग कम हुई, वहीं आधारभूत संरचनाओं को मजबूत करने का काम तेज हुआ है। ऐसे में, भारतीय रेलवे के विद्युतीकरण ने भी रफ्तार पकड़ी है। कोंकण रेलवे का 741 किमी का रूट भारतीय रेलवे के उन सबसे बड़े स्ट्रेच में से एक है, जहां विद्युतीकरण किया जा रहा है। चेयरमैन रेलवे बोर्ड सुनीत शर्मा ने कहा कि विद्युतीकरण का काम तेजी से चल रहा है और दिसंबर तक पूरा कर लिया जाएगा।हाल ही में हुआ था परीक्षणकोंकण रेलवे पर चरणबद्ध तरीके से इलेक्ट्रिफिकेशन का काम कुछ सालों से चल रहा है। फरवरी में यहां पहला इलेक्ट्रिक लोकोमोटिव (इंजन) चलाया गया था। रोहा और रत्नागिरी के बीच, एक 25 केवी करंट को ओवरहेड इलेक्ट्रिक लाइन के माध्यम से 22 फरवरी से परीक्षण के लिए किया गया। पहला इलेक्ट्रिक इंजन रोहा से रत्नागिरी तक चला। रेलवे का कहना है कि परीक्षण में सफलता मिली है और वह दिन दूर नहीं, जब सभी ट्रेनें इलेक्ट्रिक पर चलेंगी।-अब तक 370 किमी रूट का हुआ है विद्युतीकरण-इस प्रोजेक्ट के लिए खर्च होंगे ₹1100 करोड़ रुपये-741 किमी लंबे रूट पर हैं 91 सुरंग और 1880 ब्रिज-6.5 किमी की सबसे लंबी सुरंग रत्नागिरी के पास है-64 मीटर ऊंचा ब्रिज भी रत्नागिरी के पास पनवाल नदी पर हैलॉकडाउन से मिली मजबूतीकोंकण रेलवे के विद्युतीकरण के अलावा लॉकडाउन के दौरान देश भर में कई जगहों पर इन्फ्रास्ट्रक्चर को मजबूत करने के काम हुए हैं। कई जगह कर्व हटाए गए हैं, तो कई जगह यार्ड के काम हुए हैं। 2369 रूट किमी पर 2020-21 में नई लाइन, गेज बदलने या डबलिंग का काम हुआ है। इसी दौरान 6015 किमी रूट पर विद्युतीकरण हुआ और इलेक्ट्रिक लोकोमोटिव चलने लगे। सीआरबी सुनीत शर्मा ने कहा कि कई काम ऐसे थे, जिन्हें पूरा करने के लिए लंबे ब्लॉक लेने पड़ सकते थे, उन्हें लॉकडाउन के दौरान पूरा किया गया।
