Travelling by Bengaluru-bound Tipu Express from Mysuru has become a nightmare for hundreds of commuters all because of the failure of the train to adhere to the timings. As a result, many people have been missing the train for the onward journey to Chennai and other places after arriving here from Mysuru.
Tipu Express usually departs from Mysuru at 11:30 am and reaches Kengeri at around 1:15 pm. But to cover the 12 km distance from Kengeri to Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna Station (KSR Station in Majestic), the train takes at least an hour! In fact, the superfast express train covers the 40 km distance from Mandya within 35 minutes but takes at least one hour to reach the KSR station in Bengaluru.

Sources said a clash of timings with the Mysuru-bound Malgudi Express is the reason why Tipu Express gets inevitably delayed. Malgudi Express reaches KSR  station at 1:40 pm and departs at 1:50 pm. However, this  train always arrives late at KSR Station from Yesvanthpur Station after the routine cleaning and leaves Majestic at 2:05 pm or 2:10 pm. Since the Tipu Express has to arrive on Platform No 8, it cannot proceed from Kengeri or Nayandahalli stations until Platform No. 8 is vacant.
Mr Suresh, a Tipu Express regular, told Deccan Chronicle that people travel in the superfast train by paying Rs 75 (express train fare Rs 60) but still the train  arrives at KSR Station 45-50 minutes behind schedule. He wanted to know why people should pay superfast fares when the train runs like a passenger train between Kengeri and KSR station. Raghavendra Rao, another traveller suggests a solution-the Chamarajanagar passenger train which arrives on Platform No 9 in the morning, departs only at 3:25 pm and instead of stationing it on the platform for six hours, Tipu Express can be accommodated on Platform No 9.
Similarly, the Bengaluru-Kochuveli Express is also stationed on Platform No. 6 for long hours and that train too can be moved to the pit line to allow Tipu to arrive in Bengaluru, he says.
On Thursday, Tipu reached Kengeri at 1:15 pm and left at 1:45 pm. It was again stopped at Nayandahalli from 1:45 pm to 2:20 pm and then stopped on the outer track for 25 minutes. The train reached KSR Station at 2:45 pm,  a delay by 55 minutes.
The divisional railway manager of Bengaluru division said all platforms at KSR station are full. “We are open to suggestions to improve punctuality. We will also consider the suggestions to allow Tipu SF train on Platform No 9 or 6. However, rescheduling of departure timing from Mysuru at 12 noon instead of 11.30 am is left to the Mysore division of South Western Railway,” he added.

Only solution it to remove the pitlines and shift it to binny mill land if this happens then around extra 4-5 pfs can be constructed on sbc otherwise there is no space to lay even a single track and if this not happens then pf 8 to 10 must be linked to bnc side and pf 1 to 7 must be linked to ypr side and pf 1 to 4 must be connected to kgi side

The extension of 16023 malgudi express till yelhanka is the reason behind this. To decongest at Yesvantpur, this step has been taken. Solution for all this problem is, malgudi express should get cancel from YNK to YPR and it should get the older time table. Leaving ypr at 1.15, reaching sbc at 1.25 n departing sbc at 1.30 or 1.35. Siddhaganga express should leave at 1 from pf-9, then this malgudi can get in to pf-9 at 1.25, and further tippu express 12613 can enter pf-9 by 1.45 or 1.50. Else malgudi express should be diverted by cantonment. Anyhow, proper maintenance can solve all the problems. Care should be taken.

The presently running Tipu Express and Chamundi Express trains’ coach composition consists of just a single AC coach (that is, AC Chair Car Coach- C1) apart from general sitting coaches. It is ironical to note that no effort is yet made by the authorities concerned to augment an additional air conditioned chair coaches in these two popular trains running between Bengaluru and Mysuru, as the trains have been operating since long on this route.
The non-availability of an additional AC coach is thus highly causing inconvenience to many passengers during the day time. At times owing to popular demand and the need to travel by AC coaches, the waitlist numbers surges resulting only in the need for an extra coach augmentation.
it is hereby requested to the South Western Railway authorities at Mysuru Division to now urgently consider augmentation of an additional AC Chair Coach (that is, Coach C2) to both Tipu Express and Chamundi Express.
The move will further benefit the passengers of Bengaluru-Talaguppa Express and Bengaluru-Hubballi Siddaganga Express and Bengaluru-Mysuru Rajya Rani Express; as both Tipu Express and Chamundi Express also have rake sharing arrangement on daily basis with these three trains.

Much need step. Even in Train no.17325/17326 vishwamanava express, there is no single AC coach. People prefer travelling in this train from KSR Bengaluru, as it reaches soon to Mysuru.

Chennai-Bengaluru Superfast Train will soon be extended to Mysuru
Mysuru: Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has assured to extend the Chennai-Bengaluru Superfast Train to Mysuru. The Minister has also assured to extend three trains that are plying between Mysuru City Railway Station and Bengaluru till Ashokapuram Station.
Responding positively to a series of requisitions made by Mysuru-Kodagu MP Pratap Simha yesterday when the Minister paid a short visit to Mysuru, Piyush Goyal said that in the interest of Mysuru tourism where lakhs of people come here to see a host of unique nature-gifted tourist
spots, he would consider the MP’s request soon.
He said that the Chennai-Bengaluru Superfast Train (12609) will be extended to Mysuru. Pratap Simha told the Minister that the said train, once arrives at Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna (KSR) Station in Bengaluru from Chennai Central Station, it stands idle for the whole night with no primary maintenance. Extension of the train will fill the demand-supply gap and capacity augmentation with no additional investment in physical infrastructure, he told the Minister.
Pratap Simha said that the services of three trains between Mysuru and Bengaluru — Vishvamanava Express (17326/25), Chamundi Express (16215/16) and Tipu Superfast Express (12613/14) — can be extended to Ashokapuram Railway Station. Once the service is extended, as a next step, these trains can start from Ashokapuram Station and then come to City Railway Station, the MP told                    the Minister. Giving a patient ear to the MP, Piyush Goyal said that he will soon direct the officials in his Ministry to look into the feasibility of the extension of trains. He also directed the Mysuru Railway officials to take steps to extend the trains by looking into technical aspects.
Nov 13 2018 (13:46) Hindu Sena Writes to Piyush Goyal, Requests Him to Rename 'Tipu Express' to 'Ananth Express' (

It's the season of the renaming of things. First, it started off with cities and now it's already on to trains. Yep. A day after demonstrations and protests broke out in Madikeri in Karnataka early as the government-sponsored celebrations for the birth anniversary of the controversial 18th-century ruler of erstwhile Mysore kingdom Tipu Sultan began, a fringe right-wing organisation Hindu Sena is demanding a change in the name of a train. All because it's named after Tipu Sultan.
In a letter to Minister of Railways, Piyush Goyal, the chief of Hindu Sena group, Vishnu Gupta, writes that he is completely 'shocked' that a train named after Tipu Sultan exists in the country. "On the one hand the BJP is protesting the move of
the Karnataka government organising Tipu Sultan Jayanti and on the other hand BJP ruled central government under the Indian Railway has allowed a train to named after Tipu Sultan." [sic] Gupta in his letter requests Goyal to rename the train as Ananth Express as a tribute to Ananth Kumar, who passed away on Monday at Karnataka's capital Bengaluru.
He represented Karnataka in the Lok Sabha from the Bengaluru south constituency since 1996.Expressing his sadness over Ananth Kumar's death, PM Modi, in a tweet, said he was "a remarkable leader" who "went on to serve society with utmost diligence and compassion""Ananth Kumar was the true son of Karnataka," the letter read.Here is the letter that the Hindu Sena chief wrote to Mr Goyal:
Apart from working men, women also form a majority of commuters who travel towards the capital city from Mysuru during the morning hours.
MYSURU: Taking note of the increase in number of women commuters on trains, the South Western Railway (SWR), Mysuru division, has introduced exclusive coaches for women on Mysuru-Bengaluru trains. Three trains have been equipped with four coaches for women passengers only.
According to a release from the office of senior divisional commercial manager, SWR, Mysuru, S G Yathish Kumar, “While two coaches will be reserved for women on Chamundi Express (train number
16215/16216), one each are at Vishamanav Express (17326/17325) and Tipu Express (12613/12614) totalling four coaches.”
Sources told The New Indian Express that following several complaints from commuters during the recent visit by Divisional Railway Manager Aparna Garg for inspection, it was decided to add extra coaches for women. This is in addition to the existing ladies coach located next to the engine.
Apart from working men, women also form a majority of commuters who travel towards the capital city from Mysuru during the morning hours.Most of these women are employed at garment factories in and around Bengaluru. At times, they find it difficult to jostle for space along with men, a commuter said.
Addl coaches to clear Diwali rush
Bengaluru: To clear the extra rush of passengers during Diwali, the following trains will be provided temporarily with one 3-tier Second Class Sleeper coach shortly. The Yesvantpur - Bidar - Yesvantpur Express (Train No. 16571/16572), which runs four days a week, will have the additional coach from November 1 to 15 from the Yesvantpur end and from November 2 to 16 from the Bidar end, said an official release.The Yesvantpur - Latur - Yesvantpur Tri-weekly Express (Train no. 16583/16584) will be augmented with the additional coach from November 2 to 16 from Yesvantpur and from November 3 to 17 from Latur.
