Railway on loss of 25K Cr per yr



:bash::bash:

@ www.vijaykarnatakaepaper.com
some reasons are in karnataka only.. trains starting from managlore central, which are supposed to travel up north go down south for 351 km to that holy place called "Palakkad" .. waste of precious fuel and time.. so how Railway can make profit?

Even after 66 years of independence the most important line in Karanata is not seen the light of the day "Tumkur-davanagere" and "Dharwad-Belagavi"
trains from bangalore take circuitous route and go north..

Railways need to work on reducing the distances .. need to identify the projects of national importance. Complete the projects in time and in Budget.. the projects goes for ever.. every year new railway lines announced .. nothing gets started..

ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು ನಗರ ಮತ್ತು ತುಮಕೂರು ನಡುವೆ ಇಂದಿನಿಂದ ರೈಲು ಸಂಚಾರ ಆರಂಭಗೊಂಡಿದೆ. ಇದು ಸಹಸ್ರರು ಪ್ರಯಾಣಿಕರಿಗೆ ಹರ್ಷ ತಂದಿದೆ. ಮುಂಜಾನೆ ೮.೧೫ ಕ್ಕೆ ಇದು ಹೊರಡಲಿದೆ...

ಕನಸಾಗಿರುವ ಕೊಂಕಣ ರೈಲು- ವರ್ತುಲ ರಸ್ತೆ ಸಂಪರ್ಕ
First Published: 03 Aug 2013 11:22:50 AM IST
ಶಿವಮೊಗ್ಗ: ಈ ಹಿಂದೆ ರೇಲ್ವೆ ಸಚಿವರಾಗಿದ್ದ ಮುನಿಯಪ್ಪ ಅವರು ನಗರಕ್ಕೆ ಭೇಟಿ ನೀಡಿದ್ದ ಸಂದರ್ಭದಲ್ಲಿ ನೀಡಿದ್ದ ಹಲವು ಭರವಸೆ ಇನ್ನೂ ಬಾಕಿ ಇವೆ. ಇವುಗಳನ್ನು ಹಾಲಿ ರೇಲ್ವೆ ಸಚಿವ ಮಲ್ಲಿಕಾರ್ಜುನ ಖರ್ಗೆ ಅವರು ಈಡೇರಿಸುವರೇ....?
ಬಹುಮುಖ್ಯವಾಗಿ ತಾಳಗುಪ್ಪ- ಹೊನ್ನಾವರ ರೈಲು ಮಾರ್ಗಕ್ಕೆ ರಾಜ್ಯ ಸರ್ಕಾರದ ಪರವಾಗಿ ಈ ಹಿಂದೆ ಮುಖ್ಯಮಂತ್ರಿಯಾಗಿದ್ದ ಯಡಿಯೂರಪ್ಪ ಅವರು ಶೇ.60 ಪಾಲು ಕೊಡುವ ಭರವಸೆ ನೀಡಿದ್ದರು. ಅದಿನ್ನೂ ಅನುಷ್ಠಾನಕ್ಕೆ ಬಂದಿಲ್ಲ.
ಸುರಂಗ ಮಾರ್ಗ ನಿರ್ಮಿಸಿ ಸಂಪರ್ಕಿಸಬಹುದೆಂದು ರೇಲ್ವೆ ಸಚಿವ ಮುನಿಯಪ್ಪ ಅವರು ತಿಳಿಸಿದ್ದರು. ಈ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಸ್ಪಷ್ಟ ಭರವಸೆಯನ್ನು ಜಿಲ್ಲೆಯ ಜನತೆ ನಿರೀಕ್ಷಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾರೆ.
ಕಾಮಗಾರಿ ಸ್ಥಗಿತ: ಜನರ ಕಣ್ಣಿಗೆ ಕಾಣುವಂತೆ 100 ಅಡಿ ವರ್ತುಲ ರಸ್ತೆಯ ಕಾಮಗಾರಿ ರೈಲು ನಿಲ್ದಾಣ ಭಾಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಸ್ಥಗಿತವಾಗಿದೆ.
ರೈಲು ನಿಲ್ದಾಣದ ಎದುರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಸಾಗುವುದಕ್ಕೆ ರೇಲ್ವೆ ಇಲಾಖೆಯೇ ಆಕ್ಷೇಪ ವ್ಯಕ್ತಪಡಿಸಿತ್ತು. ಕೊನೆಗೆ ರೇಲ್ವೆ ಕ್ವಾರ್ಟರ್ಸ್ನ ಬದಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಸಾಗುವುದಕ್ಕೆ ಅವಕಾಶ ಮಾಡುವುದಾಗಿ ರೇಲ್ವೆ ಸಚಿವ ಮುನಿಯಪ್ಪ ಭರವಸೆಯನ್ನೂ ನೀಡಿದ್ದರು.
ಈ ಜಾಗ ಸ್ವಾಧೀನಕ್ಕೆ ಸುಮಾರು ರು. 4 ಕೋಟಿ ಶುಲ್ಕ ನೀಡುವುದಾಗಿ ಮುಖ್ಯಮಂತ್ರಿಯಾಗಿದ್ದ ಯಡಿಯೂರಪ್ಪ ಭರವಸೆ ನೀಡಿದ್ದರು. ನಂತರ ಹಣ ಜಿಲ್ಲಾಡಳಿತಕ್ಕೆ ಬಂದಿತ್ತು.
ಕಂದಾಯ ಇಲಾಖೆಗೆ ಸೇರಿದ್ದು: ನಂತರ ಗೋತ್ತಾಗಿದ್ದೇನೆಂದರೆ ಯಾವ ಜಾಗವನ್ನು ರೇಲ್ವೆ ಇಲಾಖೆ ಶುಲ್ಕ ಪಡೆದು ಜಿಲ್ಲಾಡಳಿತಕ್ಕೆ ಕೊಡುವುದಾಗಿ ಹೇಳಿತ್ತೋ ಆ ಜಾಗ ಕಂದಾಯ ಇಲಾಖೆಗೇ ಸೇರಿದ್ದಾಗಿತ್ತು.
ಇದಾದ ನಂತರ ವರ್ತುಲ ರಸ್ತೆಯನ್ನು ಸೇರಿಸುವ ಯಾವ ಪ್ರಯತ್ನವೂ ನಡೆಯಲಿಲ್ಲ.
ಈ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಶನಿವಾರ ನಗರಕ್ಕೆ ಆಗಮಿಸುತ್ತಿರುವ ರೈಲ್ವೆ ಸಚಿವರಿಂದ ಸ್ಪಷ್ಟ ಭರವಸೆಯನ್ನು ಜನರು ನಿರೀಕ್ಷಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾರೆ.
ಇಷ್ಟೇ ಅಲ್ಲದೇ ಶಿವಮೊಗ್ಗ ನಾಗರಿಕ ಹಿತರಕ್ಷಣಾ ವೇದಿಕೆಗಳ ಒಕ್ಕೂಟದ ಪ್ರಧಾನ ಕಾರ್ಯದರ್ಶಿ ಕೆ.ವಿ. ವಸಂತಕುಮಾರ್ ಅವರು ಜಿಲ್ಲೆಯ ಹಲವು ಬೇಡಿಕೆಗಳನ್ನು ರೇಲ್ವೆ ಸಚಿವರ ಗಮನಕ್ಕೆ ತರಲು ನಿರ್ಧರಿಸಿದೆ.
- ಶಿವಮೊಗ್ಗ ಹಳೇ ರೈಲು ನಿಲ್ದಾಣದಲ್ಲಿ ಯಾವ ಕನಿಷ್ಠ ಸೌಲಭ್ಯಗಳೂ ಇಲ್ಲ. ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಮುಂಗಡ ಟಿಕೆಟ್ ನೀಡಿವ ವ್ಯವಸ್ಥೆ ಇಲ್ಲ. ಈ ನಿಲ್ದಾಣದಿಂದ ಅರ್ಧದಷ್ಟು ಪ್ರಯಾಣಿಕರು ಈ ನಿಲ್ದಾಣ ಬಳಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದು, ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಸೌಲಭ್ಯಗಳ ಅಗತ್ಯವಿದೆ.
- ರಾತ್ರಿ ತಾಳಗುಪ್ಪ- ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು ರೈಲು ಯಾವಾಗಲೂ ಪ್ರಯಾಣಿಕರಿಂದ ಕಿಕ್ಕಿರಿದಿರುತ್ತದೆ. ಈ ರೈಲಿಗೆ ಇನ್ನೂ ಐದು ಬೋಗಿಗಳನ್ನು ಜೋಡಿಸುವ ಅಗತ್ಯವಿದೆ.
- ಶಿವಮೊಗ್ಗದಿಂದ ಹೊರಡುವ ಬೆಳಗಿನ ಇಂಟರ್ಸಿಟಿ ರೈಲು ಒಂದನೇ ಪ್ಲಾಟ್ಫಾರಂನಿಂದ ಹೊರಡಲಿ ಹೊರಡಲಿ ಎಂದು ಬಹಳ ಸಲ ಅಧಿಕಾರಿಗಳಿಗೆ ವಿನಂತಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದರೂ ಅವರು ಸ್ಪಂದಿಸುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ.
- ಶಿವಮೊಗ್ಗ -ಹರಿಹರ ರೈಲು ಮಾರ್ಗದ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಇಲಾಖೆಯಿಂದ ಅಸ್ಪಷ್ಟ ಉತ್ತರ ಬರುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಇನ್ನೂ ಹಣ ಬಿಡುಗಡೆಯಾಗಿಲ್ಲ ಎಂದು ಅಧಿಕಾರಿಗಳು ಹೇಳುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಈ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಸಚಿವರು ಸ್ಪಷ್ಟನೆ ನೀಡಬೇಕು.
- ಶಿವಮೊಗ್ಗದಿಂದ ಸಂಜೆ ಹೊರಟು ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು ತಲುಪುವ ಹಾಗೂ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿನಿಂದ ಬೆಳಿಗ್ಗೆ ಹೊರಟು ಶಿವಮೊಗ್ಗ ತಲುಪುವ ಇನ್ನೊಂದು ಇಂಟರ್ಸಿಟಿ ರೈಲಿನ ಅಗತ್ಯ ಮಲೆನಾಡಿಗಿದೆ.
- ಶಿವಮೊಗ್ಗ ನಾಗರಿಕರಿಗೆ ಅಥವಾ ರೇಲ್ವೆ ಬಳಕೆದಾರರಿಗೆ ಮೈಸೂರು ವಲಯದಲ್ಲಿ ರೇಲ್ವೆ ಬಳಕೆದಾರರ ಸಮಿತಿಯಲ್ಲಾಗಲಿ, ಹುಬ್ಬಳ್ಳಿಯ ಪ್ರಾಂತ್ಯ ರೇಲ್ವೆ ಬಳಕೆದಾರರ ಸಮಿತಿಯಲ್ಲಾಗಲಿ ಅವಕಾಶ ನೀಡಿಲ್ಲ.
ಮೈಸೂರು ರೇಲ್ವೆ ಬಳಕೆದಾರರ ಸಮಿತಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಶಿವಮೊಗ್ಗ ಜಿಲ್ಲಾ ವಾಣಿಜ್ಯ ಮತ್ತು ಕೈಗಾರಿಕಾ ಸಂಘಕ್ಕೆ ಇದ್ದ ಪ್ರಾತಿನಿಧ್ಯವನ್ನು ಅಧಿಕಾರಿಗಳು ದುರುದ್ದೇಶದಿಂದ ಕೈಬಿಟ್ಟಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

Possibly this is the only express train in India that will run for <80km.

Strange. I have never come across any express train that runs on a trunk route for such a short distance. I am sure this would be extended to either Arasikere or Shivamogga later.

So Talguppa is getting trains, Chikballpur Poor cousin

This Talguppa gauge conversion happened recently and it small place in Western Ghats. 4 Train connectivity with one of them is Intercity and another one is night train. Its really good connectvity and good work done by Yeddi.

Even though Chikballapur is close to Bangalore and MP Veerappa Moily as Minister and gauge convrsion happened many years back, still this place is completly neglected with Train connectivity and with just 2 Passenger Trains.. This is complet neglect by MP's and MLAs added to that SWR / Railway Board.

When Railway has no intentions to run trains o Chikballpur, why did they lay the track??? even goods trains also do not run on this line. But in Karnataka its become presitage / fashion to ask railway track every dist and every Taluq.

I feel Bangalore is also being to suffer in the same way as Mangalore, though it is a little better off than the coastal city. Just like how most trains of Mangalore are made to pass through Palakkad, several trains of Bangalore are made to pass through Hyderabad or Chennai instead of Gulbarga. I am referring to trains like Sanghamitra express, Guwahati express, Indore express etc. We are getting trains to the same old places like Hyderabad, Chennai, Patna, Lucknow, Hatia (Ranchi) etc. the places that are already connected to the city. They have place in Bangalore for all these trains but not for new ones like Amritsar, Dehradun, Varanasi, Kalka etc.

Routing of Sampark Kranti express via Hubli is another case. When the entire world is striving to reduce the journey time between big cities, IR is clearly going back in time through increasing it by a whooping 9 hours by routing the train via Hubli instead of introducing a new one from the city. 9 hours of time, fuel and money required to operate it....Damn everybody who made this happen in the name of bringing justice to the state, when Bangaloreans who are a majority on board, were held to ransom. The correct route should have been via Gulbarga, the one that Karnataka express takes. A new train must be introduced from Hubli to Delhi and Kolkata.

Railways need to charge for the facilities they provide. Classic cases of such violation in Karnataka can be seen on Mysore - Bangalore and Hindupur - Bangalore routes. These need to be set right by introducing local trains along these routes. People who board reserved compartments with unreserved tickets on long distance trains need to be severely fined or punished or both.

Chikballapur can have more trains once it is linked to Gauribidanur as proposed in this year's budget. All the trains like Mumbai - Nagercoil, Mumbai - Trivandrum, Chennai - Shirdi - Chennai - Satya Sai Nilayam, Coimbatore - LTT, Coimbatore - Nizamuddin, Rajkot - Coimbatore etc, which come all the way to K.R Puram, Bangalore City, Yeshwantpur, Yelahanka etc. can be diverted at Bangarapet itself via Kolar, Chikballapur and Gauribidanur. That way these places would be linked to all important places in the country like Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Pune, Shirdi etc. Not only that, but the number of stops for these trains within Karnataka would also increase as they are passing through 2 district headquarters and several taluk headquarters. We can demand stops at all of them so that our people would get whatever benefits they can. There are already several trains that reach and terminate at the heart of Bangalore and people from those regions willing to reach the city can take them or use the local trains in future from Bangarapet or some other location to reach the city centre.

Kolar - Mumbai, Chikballapur - Delhi etc are not possible in the immediate future and so this would be the way to connect all those places to the metros. If they are insufficient, they always have Bangalore next door to depend on. Goods trains, which at present are adding to the congestion in Bangalore, can also be diverted along this route as proposed in the RITES report.

I do not understand why u r behind re routing of KSK (via Hubli).
I want to tell one thing here

If KSK is run via Gulbarga then .......it stops @ Raichur,Wadi and Gulbarga
If it runs via Hubli.......it covers most of KA state...Tumkur,Arsikere,(Shimoga),Davangere,Haveri,Hubli,(Gadag),Dharwad,Belgaum.

Atleast think positively as it helps the people of KA where there is no direct train to National Capital (except Mysore Swarna Jayanthi weekly Exp).

If Bangalore people want to reach delhi 9 hrs early they can have another train on the route wht u have said.

This train was started to help the people of entire KA state not Bangalore alone which is having number of trains to Delhi but not useful to South/Central and North KA .

Chikkaballapur may get into prominence only if Srinivasapur-Madanapalli Road Railway line is completed. That will provide a shorter route to Tirupati and Chennai from Bangalore. Veerapa Moily had he wanted could have got this done in last 5 years.. both Muniyappa and Moily made tall promises achieved little. The Chikballapur -Kolar Railway line is not yet Opened, and hopefully get opened this year end.

The Kottur-Harihar Line , which could have been a gold mine for railways is still pending because of some farmers are agitating for higher compensation. The curse of our state is we are not getting leadership with political will and vision. Else how much time it will take to resolve. The Farmers will get benefited due to railway line. This update I am seeing from last 3 years. The citizens of Kottur agitated for this till 2011 now they have also it seems given up. The length of the railway line is mere 67 kms. Alredy 18 years are passed and counting.

The Chikkajajur-Rayadurg railway line which is operational.. is not used at all.. some passenger trains run on that line.. I am not sure If this line is used for freight movement. The Mangalore-Hyderabad train can be made to run on this line

Same story is Ginigera-Krishna railway line ( I read that Krishna - Devarakadra in AP is almost at the verge of completion ) is also not complete..

I do not understand why u r behind re routing of KSK (via Hubli).
I want to tell one thing here

If KSK is run via Gulbarga then .......it stops @ Raichur,Wadi and Gulbarga
If it runs via Hubli.......it covers most of KA state...Tumkur,Arsikere,(Shimoga),Davangere,Haveri,Hubli,(Gadag),Dharwad,Belgaum.

Atleast think positively as it helps the people of KA where there is no direct train to National Capital (except Mysore Swarna Jayanthi weekly Exp).

If Bangalore people want to reach delhi 9 hrs early they can have another train on the route wht u have said.

This train was started to help the people of entire KA state not Bangalore alone which is having number of trains to Delhi but not useful to South/Central and North KA .
I completely agree with you Yaqoob. KSK train is convenient to the people of most of the parts of Karnataka to rach country's capital city not for convenience of Bangalore people. Bangalore people can travel by other trains also.

What do you do if you were a business man? Do you prefer making losses at the cost of service or look for a way to make profit? I think you would prefer the later, so is the IR. Railways look to provide connectivity from major cities and places that can or has large number of moving population between cities. Sanghamitra was started as Chennai - Patna exp, later extended to Bangalore. So tell me who is getting benefited? There won't be much population from NE or Bihar or UP in Hubli, Dharwad, Arsikere, Davengere cities to run train just to satisfy regional ego. That is the reason most of the trains from Bangalore run either via Hyderabad or Chennai and not via Hubli. Hubli is not a viable option from business proposition point of view.


Routing of Sampark Kranti express via Hubli is another case. When the entire world is striving to reduce the journey time between big cities, IR is clearly going back in time through increasing it by a whooping 9 hours by routing the train via Hubli instead of introducing a new one from the city. 9 hours of time, fuel and money required to operate it....Damn everybody who made this happen in the name of bringing justice to the state, when Bangaloreans who are a majority on board, were held to ransom. The correct route should have been via Gulbarga, the one that Karnataka express takes. A new train must be introduced from Hubli to Delhi and Kolkata.
SK was started with an intent of providing connectivity from the deepest part of any state to the national capital. That's why KA-SK runs via Hubli. At once you say why trains don't run via Tumkur - Arsikere - Hubli route on the other hand you are accusing IR for diverting trains via Hubli and it is costing 9 extra hours of journey plus the additional cost of fuel etc. You are contradicting yourself. You can't have a cake and eat it too. Decide what you want, either keep the cake as is or eat it. Choice is yours.
Hubli already has connectivity to Kolkata with Amravathi exp and KA-SK for Delhi. It has connectivity to Mumbai and Chennai too. What do you want? Do want IR to run empty rakes from Hubli?

Railways need to charge for the facilities they provide. Classic cases of such violation in Karnataka can be seen on Mysore - Bangalore and Hindupur - Bangalore routes. These need to be set right by introducing local trains along these routes. People who board reserved compartments with unreserved tickets on long distance trains need to be severely fined or punished or both.
Difficult to handle such a situation. Tell me how many people really travel between SBC and MYS with reservation. I mean SBC being the starting point. Not even 0.01%. What do you want IR to do, simply run empty trains between SBC and MYS? At least railway is getting money in some form by allowing people to travel. Some time, it is better we think rationally to understand the problem from the different perspective.

New Line projects will happen next 20 Years like Hassan - Shravanbelagola

Chikballapur can have more trains once it is linked to Gauribidanur as proposed in this year's budget. All the trains like Mumbai - Nagercoil, Mumbai - Trivandrum, Chennai - Shirdi - Chennai - Satya Sai Nilayam, Coimbatore - LTT, Coimbatore - Nizamuddin, Rajkot - Coimbatore etc, which come all the way to K.R Puram, Bangalore City, Yeshwantpur, Yelahanka etc. can be diverted at Bangarapet itself via Kolar, Chikballapur and Gauribidanur. That way these places would be linked to all important places in the country like Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Pune, Shirdi etc. Not only that, but the number of stops for these trains within Karnataka would also increase as they are passing through 2 district headquarters and several taluk headquarters. We can demand stops at all of them so that our people would get whatever benefits they can. There are already several trains that reach and terminate at the heart of Bangalore and people from those regions willing to reach the city can take them or use the local trains in future from Bangarpet or some other location to reach the city centre.

Kolar - Mumbai, Chikballapur - Delhi etc are not possible in the immediate future and so this would be the way to connect all those places to the metros. If they are insufficient, they always have Bangalore next door to depend on. Goods trains, which at present are adding to the congestion in Bangalore, can also be diverted along this route as proposed in the RITES report.
Even Harihar - Kottur, Kolar- Chikballapur, Hubli -Ankola, these will take next 15 Years.

Why can't they run the following Trains :
1. Express Night Train between Chikballapur - Mysore / Chamajnagar
2. Passenger Train Chikballapur - Arsikeri,
3. Chikballapur - Hospet via Yelhanka - Guntakal
4. Passenger Train Chikballapur - Yelahanka - K R Puram - Bangarpet
5. Passenger Train Kolar - Chennai
6. Intercity Train Kolar - Hyderabad via Jolarpet.
7. Passenger Train Kolar - Tirupathi
8. Weekly Train Kolar - Delhi via Jolarpet


I agree after 15 years, connectivity will improve to these places, but does it mean that do not run any trains be content with 2 Passenger Trains.

Look at what happening to Chitradurga, we are harping on Tumkur - Davangeri but forgetten about existing line Chikjajaur - Chitradura - Bellary.

Recently 3/4 days back all north / Delhi bound Train diverted via Bellary - Chitradurga - Chikjajur - Tumkur- Bangalore.

That means, this Chitradurga has been treated badly by Indian Railway and how is that we are including MPs / MLAs r keeping quite.

Then we can have logic saying once Tumkur - Chitradurga - Davangeri line complets, Chitradurga will have better connectivity???
