While SWR restored most of the trains, activists have urged officials to restore full operations
Ahead of the divisional-level meeting with Members of Parliament scheduled on November 11, activists have urged lawmakers to press for more local trains and resume pre-Covid train operations.
Last week, the Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) sent letters to the MPs within the Bengaluru jurisdictional division for the annual exercise, which could not be held last year due to the raging pandemic.

Central MP P C Mohan said he will raise issues of the foot overbridge (FoB) and rail overbridge (RoB) in the city besides a push for the suburban rail.
“FoBs and RoBs are not cost-intensive projects but provide relief and safety to thousands of commuters. I will also raise the issue of the Baiyappanahalli terminal and check if there is lack of coordination between SWR (South Western Railway) and K-RIDE in implementing the suburban rail project,” Mohan said.
While SWR restored most of the trains, activists have urged officials to restore full operations.
"Industries and other sectors are operating at the pre-pandemic level and there is a high demand for trains. It is time the railways drop the idea of running 'special' trains and address people’s concerns," said T R Raghothama Rao, a retired DGM from KPTCL who has been part of the railway users committee.
The shortage of trains is particularly acute in the Bengaluru-Tumakuru line, where a mere 15 trains operate in the place of 40, including those operated weekly.
"We are writing to our MP to push for MEMU trains to Tumakuru as the track has recently been electrified. At the same time, we want automatic signalling so that the railways can provide a rapid transport system between the two cities," he said.
Urban transport activist Sanjeev Dyamannavar said many positive changes can happen through the meeting if all the MPs attend.
"Many MPs do not make time for these meetings, which is a big loss for us. Running electric trains to Devanahalli, quadrupling the Whitefield line, getting funds for Cantonment terminal are some of the issues that have to be discussed," he said.

The suburban railway project would make travelling in the city and its suburbs, including to the international airport easier
Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Thursday inspected the progress of the ambitious suburban railway project here. The CM travelled from Bengaluru Cantonment to Heelalige in an inspection car to review the project as well as the doubling of the railway line.
Later, speaking to reporters he said the suburban railway project would make travelling in the city and its suburbs, including to the international airport easier.

will also help reduce traffic congestion in the city. Similarly, the railway doubling project will help in the operation of more trains from Bengaluru," he said. Yediyurappa said the Bengaluru suburban railway project is being implemented at an estimated cost of Rs 15,767 crore.

The expenditure would be borne by the state, Centre and external funding at a ratio of 20:20:60, the Chief Minister noted.
The state government has released Rs 400 crores for the project in 2020-21. He explained that the project is being executed by K- RIDE, the Joint Venture of Government of Karnataka and Ministry of Railways. According to officials, the suburban project comprises four corridors with a route length of 148 kms. The routes are Bengaluru City Railway Station to Devanahalli (41.40 Km), Byappanahalli to Chikkabanavara (covering a distance of 25 Km), Kengeri to Whitefield (35.52 Km); and Heelalige (Chandapura) to Rajankunte (46.24 Km).
The single line between Yeshwantpur to Channasandra section and Byappanahalli to Hosur was a major constraint for operating more trains from Bengaluru to its outskirts, they said.
Therefore these two railway line doubling projects were sanctioned in 2018-19 with 50-50 cost sharing between Government of Karnataka and Ministry of Railways.
