There is no need to remove RSA. Extension is possible with existing RSA.
An agreement was signed between Ministry of Railways and Government of Karnataka o­n 16th January, 2017 for development of a Suburban Rail System in Bengaluru. It has now been decided by Ministry of Railways that the following works will be under taken in this regard.

1.15 pairs of short distance passenger trains that are presently running will be converted with 12 Car MEMU (Mainline Electric Multiple Unit) extended rakes. Estimated cost of this conversion is Rs. 327.79 Crores

Enhancement of maintenance facilities for MEMU services at Banasawadi shed at cost of Rs. 29.45 Crores.
Above two projects will be taken up o­n 80:20 cost sharing basis between Government of Karnataka and Ministry of Railways and these projects will be implemented by Railways.

These 15 pairs of trains are operating between KSR Bengaluru – Bangarapet/Marikuppam, Bengaluru - Jolarpettai, Bengaluru Cantt. - Bangarapet, Bengaluru - Mysuru and Bengaluru - Hindupur.
The MEMU electric traction increases the passenger carrying capacity, results in better utilisation of line capacity, fuel efficiency with enhanced performance. 15 short distance passenger trains are equivalent to 9 rakes. Out of the 15 approved, Two MEMU rakes shall be provided during the current financial year and remaining 7 MEMU rakes shall be provided in 2018-19 from manufacturing units of Indian Railways.

The project of enhancement of maintenance facilities for MEMU services at Banasawadi shall be taken up after approval of the work in supplementary budget, 2017-18 of Central Government.

In the last three years, many inputs have been given by Railways to cater for the needs of passengers for travelling around Bengaluru. 8 pairs of new services have been introduced and following services have been extended.

BENGALURU: In a huge relief for the IT crowd who commute from Mysuru to Bengaluru for work by trains, two of their long-pending demands were okayed on Friday by the South Western Railway headquarters in Hubballi.
The departure of the Arakkonam Passenger from Whitefield has been deferred by 17 minutes to facilitate IT workers to reach the Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna (City) Station on time to board the Mysore Passenger.
In another vital move, the Bangalore Passenger Train from Bangarpet and the Ramanagara Passenger Train from KSR station have been merged to run as
...

a single train to Ramanagara.
According to railway officials there was a big demand for these moves from IT professionals based in Bidadi, Channapatna and Ramanagara who commute to Bengaluru for work.
The representation they submitted to the Bengaluru Division in this connection was sent to Hubballi three months ago.
“We got the green signal today. The change in timings will be effected from September 12,” said Divisional Railway Manager, Bengaluru Division, Sanjiv Agarwal.
Right now, the Arakkonam Passenger (Train No. 56261) from Bangarpet reaches Whitefield at 5.45pm and departs at 5.48pm. In future, the train will reach Whitefield at 6.03pm and depart at 6.05pm, a source said. “This has been done to help the IT crowd board a Mysore Passenger train which leaves KSR Station at 7pm. Since most of them reached Whitefield only by 6pm, they missed the Passenger train here and subsequently headed to Mysuru,” Agarwal added.
The train stoppages remain the same starting from Arakkonam, then Whitefield, Krishnarajapuram, Baiyappanahalli, Bangalore East and Cantonment before terminating at KRS station.
The other big change that could benefit IT employees working at ITPL is the merger of two passenger trains.
The train from Bangarpet to KSR station (Train no. 76508) and to Ramanagara (Train No. 06541) will be run as a single passenger train from Bangarpet to Ramanagara. “This has been done so that employees boarding at Whitefield can head to Ramanagara without alighting at KSR station to change over to the Ramanagara Passenger,” the official said.

BENGALURU: Following poor patronage to the special Diesel Electric Multiple Unit (DEMU) train service from the city to Ramanagaram, the train’s departure will be changed by nearly an hour in a week’s time. The South Western Railway Division on Tuesday approved a proposal to change the timing recommended by the Bengaluru Division six months ago.
The idea behind launching the Bengaluru City-Ramanagaram DEMU Special (No. 06540) in June 2015 was to ease some pressure on the Chamundi Express to Mysuru which leaves from the city at 6.15 pm daily. “This Express train runs at an occupancy percentage between 150 and 170 per cent,” a senior railway official said.
The

huge demand forced the Bengaluru Division to introduce it.
However, the DEMU, which was inaugurated on June 8 to depart at 4.30 pm from the City station from Monday to Saturday, did not pick up steam. “It has a 50-60 per cent occupancy, which is poor patronage for a passenger train. Only if a passenger train has 100 per cent occupancy, can it run at a no-loss, no-profit percentage,” he said.
Elaborating on the new timings to be effective from April 11, Divisional Railway Manager, Sanjiv Agarwal, said, “The train will leave at 5.25 pm and reach Ramanagaram at 6.30 pm. We received consent from the headquarters at Hubballi.”
The train leaves the City station at 4.30 pm and reaches Ramanagaram at 5.40 pm. The train will leave Ramanagaram at 6.50 pm and will reach the City by 8 pm, the official added.
After the departure of the Tippu Express (at 3 pm) and the Chamarajnagar Express (at 3.30 pm) from the station, there is a gap of two hours and 45 minutes before the Chamundi Express leaves at 6.15 pm.
It was to transport passengers during that period that it was introduced. However, it has not clicked with passengers.
An official in the Commercial Division said that this service has “caused a huge loss every day, prompting us to reconsider it. A passenger train has to run at 150 per cent occupancy for us to make profits,” he said.
