But  reply from RITES says only as per the scope of work assigned to them for Cmmuter Rail.


Till now DULT has not shown what was the scope of work assigned to RITES. That will tell on how the Commuter Rail project wil be implimented.

In that Chief Sec of GoK, CM of GoK, MP's from Bangalore Central P C Mohan & Tumkur MP G Basavaraj have asked Railway Minister to look into the Commuter Rail Project.

Now with Report getting ready for Commuter Rail by RITES,  MoS for Railway Muniyyappa should get the project sanctioned in this Railway Budget.

I must commend the efforts By Tumkur MP Shri. G Basavaraj for keeping th CRS hope alive. May the tribe of MPs grow and flourish. How may of our MPs even remember the demand for CRS?

In past weeks,  Deccan Herald reported that nothing has been done on CRS front including DPR. I haven't seen any rejoinder/clarification from either DULT or SWR.

Will wait for the DPR report news.
