Similarly, no news of the non-AC sleepers being introduced also. Mangalore-Bangalore still has only 4 non-AC sleeper buses
I think the Volvo B9R buses meant for MYS-BLR-PNJ are used to start new BLR-Shirdi service
BLR departure - 14:30 hrs
Shirdi departure - 15:00 hrs

New BLR-Puttur NAC sleeper is listed now departure 22:40 hrs

NWKRTC may shift new Hubli bus-stand

Quote:
The North West Karnataka Road Transport Corporation (NWKRTC) is planning to shift the new Hubli bus-stand from Gokul Road to Hosur, according to Minister for Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Jagadish Shettar.

Speaking after inaugurating the newly formed NWKRTC Dharwad division here on Friday, Mr. Shettar said if the plan worked out, the new bus-stand would be shifted to the premises of the Hubli depot at Hosur, and the depot to Gokul Road. The Bus Rapid Transport System (BRTS) proposed for Hubli-Dharwad had necessitated this change, which would be convenient for passengers, he added.

Facelift

The Cabinet had given its approval to BRTS, under which bus-stands and terminals would get a facelift. A team of local legislators and others recently visited Ahmedabad to study BRTS, which had been working there for the last three years.

It could be used as a model for Hubli-Dharwad with certain modifications, the Minister said.

Mr. Shettar said efforts were on to convince the Union government to sanction projects under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) for Hubli-Dharwad. As the population of Hubli-Dharwad had reached 10 lakh, the city was eligible for it, he said.

NWKRTC chairman Mallikarjun Sawkar said the new division would include Dharwad, Saundatti, Dandeli and Haliyal depots. A new bus depot would also be set up near the new central bus-stand in Dharwad, for which the district administration had provided three acres.

He said the NWKRTC had made profits this year. It would get 700 more buses and improve services to rural and urban areas.

The NWKRTC would introduce 20 additional buses between Hubli and Dharwad, and these buses would start from new points in various layouts and interior areas that had no bus connectivity. Plans were on to improve the city bus terminus, old bus-stand and new bus-stand in Hubli and Dharwad, he said.

‘Improve connectivity'

Chandrakant Bellad, Hubli-Dharwad West MLA, urged the authorities to introduce air-conditioned Volvo buses from Dharwad to Bangalore and to Pune. He demanded that mini-bus terminals be set up in the extension areas, with direct buses to different localities.

NWKRTC Managing Director Hemaraju said there was a need for a workshop for the division, and the NWKRTC was ready to set it up if a minimum of five acres was provided within two or three km of the divisional office.

He said Rs. 5 crore would be released to clear the arrears of retired employees this month.

Cabinet gives nod for Bus Rapid Transport System: Shettar

Centre urged to sanction projects for Hubli-Dharwad under JNNURM

This is outrageous. Snatching Dandeli and Haliyal Depots from North Kanara Division and forming a needless Dharwad division !!! I have lived in Dharwad for many years and understand that it might need more depots. But there was no scope for the formation of a division when the nearest division exists just 20kms away in Hubli and also the existing Hubli division was not at all over burdened !! Now, after this, what will Hubli division be left with ? Probably less than 4-5 depots.

A common complaint with NWKRTC is that it was quite insensitive to the needs of other divisions under it. In the 15 years history of NWKRTC, these things have happened multiple times. And the above news of snatching two depots from NK division is just another example. The North Kanara division in particular never prospered under NWKRTC. Things were better off when NK division was under KSRTC.

Long ago, there were demands of a depot being set up at Sagar by NK division and how NWKRTC ignored it for almost a decade, is history now. Sagar, now has a KSRTC depot.

People were expecting the NK division to be split into two divisions with one headquarter being in Sirsi and another one in the coastal region of the district. That would have favored better administration and better development of facilities. But as always NWKRTC has let them down and will continue to do so in the coming years. The step motherly treatment wont end soon.

For NWKRTC, Hubli-Dharwad is everything and they fail to look beyond that. The other divisions should always be ready for the sacrifice. I feel sorry for the people of the regions who come under NWKRTC.

I am not writing this for OR against the formation of Dharwad division/depot. People are more interested in frequent and convenient buses than a depot or division. There are hardly any buses to travel to places Gadag/Hospet/Karwar from Dharwad, as compared to Hubli, but that is a separate issue....

Coming to your post , My questions to you are

(1) Do you know the distance between Dandeli/Haliyal and Sirsi compared to Dharwad?
(2) Do you know how much time it takes to travel from Dandeli / Haliyal to Sirsi compared to Dharwad?
(3) Do you know how many people travel daily between Dandeli/Haliyal and Sirsi compared to Dharwad?

The answers are obvious. It is much easier to serve people from a nearby division which has a lot of things in common compared to a remote control operation/service.

fyi... As of yesterday, the load factor on Hubli and Belgaum divisions is quite significant...

Well, you seem to be sidelining the issues that i have highlighted. The question here is also about how other depots in NWKRTC are being treated and not only about the formation of Dharwad division. I have also mentioned an issue related to sagar depot in my post.

Coming back to your set of questions, if distance can be taken as the sole parameter for the formation of a division or a depot, then NWKRTC should have honored the request to set up the sagar depot long long ago(under Sirsi division). Sagar now comes under Davanagere division which is quite far compared to Sirsi (headquarter of NK division). And the traffic between Sirsi and Sagar is more than the Sagar-Davangere route. You will find frequent buses on sagar-sirsi route than between sagar-davangere or sagar-shimoga route. So going by your logic, Sagar should have never been awarded a depot by davangere division !! NK division qualifies for that. Am I right ?

By setting up the sagar depot under davanagere division, KSRTC showed that the distance between the depot and division headquarters doesnt matter. What matters is the effective administration. Sagar still has more things in common to sirsi than davanagere !!!


There are many such examples which might trigger endless debates for/against NWKRTC's treatment of other divisions. But the fact remains that the voice/concern in and around hubli, gets honored more than from anywhere else. This is something which i am not seeing in KSRTC atleast in the last 7-8 years. KSRTC is far better in those matters.

But as usual , our discussions on such matters in any forum never reach NWKRTC.



P.S: And for those who argue that Sagar falls in a separate district, a request for a depot at nearby Siddapur which was made as far back as early 2006 (from the taluk panchayat) was also ignored (Read it here). Sagar depot was not even existing then.

i disagree..
Its better if they don't shift new bus stand to hosur,
as only city buses use the main HD road and all dharwad-belgaum bound long route buses use HD bypass road via airport(gokul) road, its better if they don't shift it
if they do it then all dwd bound long route buses should go till glass house then to gokul road,, konkana sutti mailarakke hodante.
And even it causes conjestion in main road
BRTS has got nothing to do with long route buses as only city buses use it..
So better they continue with the existing bus stand
Rather than shifting it, they should develop infra of it

I agree with u Manjunath.....

But they can have an exit point at Gokul Road (behind the Hosur Depot) and can join the Tarihal Bye pass via Gokul Road to avoid congestion.
The new bus stand is 4 kms from Chennamma Circle and helpful for the people staying in that area.......
