Hi Guys, I am not sure, when the next railway budget is (I believe it is going to be held in the month of February), but thought of what the state of Karnataka can really expect from this budget with K.H Muniyappa out of the railways ministry... I intend to write a list of trains, projects which I feel are necessary for our state and hopefully at least some of them would be fulfilled in the upcoming budget. The list of trains goes as follows:

Bangalore - Amritsar Superfast Express via Hubli, Pune

Bangalore - Varanasi Superfast Express via Gulbarga

Bangalore - Dehradun Superfast Express via Gulbarga

Bangalore - Jammu Superfast Express via Gulbarga

Bangalore - Kalka expressvia Gulbarga

Bangalore - Porbandar express via Hubli

Bangalore - Bhavnagar express via Hubli

Bangalore - Bikaner express via Hubli

Mangalore - Chennai express via Bangalore

Mangalore - Secunderabad express via Bangalore

Mangalore - Vishakapatnam express via Bangalore

Mysore - Secunderabad express via Bangalore

Mysore - Belgaum overnight express via Hassan

Bangalore - Belgaum overnight express via Haveri, Hubli

Mangalore - Vasco da Gama intercity express

Bidar - Chamarajanagar express via Bangalore and Mysore

Bangalore - Rameshwaram express

Bangalore - Mumbai Superfast express via Hubli, Madgaon and Panvel

Hubli - Mumbai express

Bangalore - Mangalore overnight express

Mangalore - Bijapur overnight express via Madgaon, Londa, Hubli and Gadag

Mysore - Bijapur express via Hassan

Bangalore - Udaipur express via Hubli

Mangalore - Ahmedabad express via Karwar, Madgaon and Panvel

Bangalore - Chikmagalur express

Talaguppa - Chikmagalur passenger

Belgaum - Chikmagalur express to be extended to Mysore after the completion of Chikmagalur - Sakleshpur railway line


Increase in frequency

Vasco - Yeshwantpur express from bi-weekly to daily

Yeshwantpur - Karwar express from tri-weekly to daily

Mysore - Mumbai Sharavati express from weekly to daily

Mysore - H. Nizamuddin Swarna Jayanti express from weekly to daily (as these 2 trains are beneficial to the people of North Karnataka as well)

Yeshwantpur - Solapur express via Gulbarga from tri-weekly to daily

(I stop here as I am unable to think of other trains. I urge people to add in their priorities)


Railway lines :

Bangalore - Hassan

Kadur - Chikmagalur line to be extended to either Sakleshpur or Hassan so that trains from Mysore to N. Karnataka can use the same

Tumkur - Chitradurga - Davangere

Mysore - Thalassery

Bidar - Gulbarga

Bangalore - Mysore doubling

Dharwad - Belgaum

Whitefield - Kolar

Chikballapur - Satya Sai Nilayam

Bangalore - Chamrajanagar - Mettupalyam / Satyamangala  (Hope this receives the environmental clearances)

Hubli - Ankola (Hope this receives the environmental clearances)

Talaguppa - Honnavar  (Hope this receives the environmental clearances)

Mysore - Madikeri - Mangalore

Hassan - Mangalore doubling (Hope this receives the environmental clearances)
