Over a month after raising the platform ticket fare at three railway stations, the South Western Railway has done the same at 11 other train stations in the Bengaluru division, starting Wednesday. 
Platform tickets are KR Puram, Bangarpet, Tumakuru, Hosur, Dharmapuri, Kengeri, Mandya, Hindupur, Penukonda, Yelahanka, Banaswadi, Carmelaram and Whitefield railway stations will cost Rs 50 from October 21 to November 10. The hike is to ensure non-travellers do not enter stations in the wake of Covid-19, the SWR said.

गोरखपुर। भारतीय रेलवे बांग्लादेश के बाद अब नेपाल से अपने संबंधों को प्रगाढ़ करने में जुटा है। भारत में निर्मित वाहन पूर्वोत्तर रेलवे के नौतनवा रेलमार्ग से पड़ोसी मुल्क तक पहुंचाए जाएंगे। 100  कारों की पहली खेप लेकर मालगाड़ी शुक्रवार को नौतनवा स्टेशन के गुड्स यार्ड पहुंची। यार्ड में उतरी कारों को पड़ोसी राष्‍ट्र नेपाल की राजधानी काठमांडू भेज दिया गया है।

वाली निजी कंपनी का प्लांट है। आगे भी यह कंपनी नौतनवां मार्ग से मालगाडिय़ों के जरिये वाहनों को नेपाल भेजेगी। मालगाड़ी में न्यू मॉडिफाइड 25 वैगन लगे थे। पूर्वोत्तर रेलवे के गोरखपुर और इज्जतनगर स्थित यांत्रिक कारखाने में कबाड़ हो चुके कोचों से बड़े पैमाने पर न्यू मॉडिफाइड वैगनों का निर्माण हो रहा है। इन वैगनों से सहूलियत के साथ देशभर में ऑटोमोबाइल्स की ढुलाई हो रही है। नौतनवा के सोनौली बार्डर से अभी तक सड़क मार्ग से ही भारत में निर्मित वाहनों का नेपाल में निर्यात होता रहा है।
हल्दी रोड स्टेशन से सात रेक ऑटोमोबाइल्स भेज जा चुके हैं बांग्लादेश
दरअसल, पूर्वोत्तर रेलवे ऑटोमोबाइल्स और खाद्यान्न निर्यात में महत्वपूर्ण भूमिका निभा रहा है। इज्जतनगर मंडल के हल्दी रोड स्टेशन से सात रेक ऑटोमोबाइल्स बांग्लादेश भेजे जा चुके हैं। लखनऊ मंडल के सुभागपुर और वाराणसी मंडल के चौरीचौरा स्टेशन से बांग्लादेश के लिए दो-दो रेक खाद्यान्न भेजे गए हैं।
रेलमार्ग से ऑटोमोबाइल्स की ढुलाई सुरक्षित और सस्ती
इस संबंध में पूर्वोत्‍तर रेलवे के सीपीआरओ पंकज कुमार सिंह का कहना है कि बिजनेस डेवलेपमेंट यूनिट के प्रयासों के सकारात्मक परिणाम मिलने लगे हैं। रेलमार्ग से ऑटोमोबाइल्स की ढुलाई सुरक्षित और सस्ती पड़ रही है। रेलवे के साथ देश की अर्थव्यवस्था भी मजबूत हो रही है। पर्यावरण संरक्षण को भी बल मिल रहा है।

BENGALURU: For the first time in the South Western Railway zone, trains have been given green signal to run at a maximum speed of 110 kmph along two crucial stretches of the Bengaluru Railway Division from Saturday. The maximum permissible speed for these zones was between 90 and 100 kmph.
The Commissioner of Railway Safety (CRS) of Southern Circle granted permission after a recent inspection of these stretches of railway lines. Divisional Railway Manager, Bengaluru Railway Division, AK Verma told The New Indian Express, “The Penukonda-Satya Sai Prashanti Nilayam-Dharmavaram electrified section, which runs to 53.1 km, has a maximum permissible speed of only 100 kmph. The Channasandra-Yelahanka-Dharmavaram stretch (via Makkajipalli and Nagasamudram) has a permissible speed of 90/100 kmph. Both have been given clearance

for running trains faster from January 25.”  
A senior railway official said the latter stretch, which extends to 174 km, will directly benefit travellers due to the stop at Yelahanaka. Passengers travelling on numerous trains along this route including the Kurla Express, Udyan Express, Sampark Kranti Express, Kacheguda Express, Gorakhpur Express, Sai Prashanti Nilayam-Chennai Express stand to benefit from it. “Most trains bound to northern parts of the country pass via this route,” an official said. Verma said the speed limit for these trains could be increased as infrastructure to support that speed had been completed in these sections. “Two other sections too are in the pipeline. We have also completed works on the stretches between Bengaluru City and Jolarpet as well as Bengaluru City and Tumakuru. Permission from the CRS has been sought to speed up trains here and we are awaiting inspection to be done,” he said. 
Though trains were not running at the maximum permissible speed of 100 kmph in the last few years, they have been doing so in the last four months, said a senior railway official. “Since all infrastructure is well in place and we are running at 100 kmph quite smoothly, the increase in speed can be effected,” he said.

Have a look long back itself i.e in mid of 2018 this route was cleared for 110 kmph and 100 psr boards were installed. One wrong info is that they mentioned as SBC JTJ section will also be upgraded to 110 but the fact is this route was declared fit for 110 kmph decades ago.

Distance between SBC and DMM is 189 kms, but fare calculation is with 235 kms. I suppose this started when gauge conversion was done two decades back.
So actual distance from sbc to GTL would be less than 300 kms and our legendary udyan takes 9 hours!!!.
There should be something unexplainable which prevents railways to delay this train.
