BENGALURU: While Indian Railways plans to complete electrification of all lines in the country by 2023, only 731km (20%) of the 3,566km track network in South Western Railway has been electrified so far.

This means SWR will have to electrify 2,835km in the next three years. Complete electrification is likely to push up speed of trains by 10-15% and provide seamless operations by eliminating detention of trains due to change in traction from diesel to electric and vice-versa. It will also reduce dependence on petroleum-based fuels.

minister Piyush Goyal recently said in the Lok Sabha: "Total broad gauge route in Indian railways is 63,631km. Of this, 39,866km has been electrified as on April 2020." During the session, he said they are planning to undertake electrification of 6,000km each in 2020-21 and 2021-22, 6,500km in 2022-23 and 5,265km in 2023-24.

SWR sources said electrification work is likely to be completed only by 2025. "Work is progressing fast but it is difficult to meet the 2023 deadline because of various factors like Covid-19," said a source. Asked about SWR's poor record of electrification, he said: "Earlier, the railways was giving priority to routes that witnessed high freight movement. It's also difficult to take up work in the Ghat section."

SWR has electrified routes like Bengaluru-Mysuru, Bengaluru-Jolarpettai, Yelahanka-Dharmavaram, Ballari-Kariganur and Toranagallu-Ranjitpura. While it has commissioned electrification of Byappanahalli-Anekal, commissioner of rail safety (CRS) will inspect the remaining Anekal-Hosur section soon. "This year, we are planning to commission electrification of sections like Yelahanka-Devanahalli (23km),Chikkabanavara-Banasandra (105km), Hotgi-Kalgurki (128km), Ghataprabha-Kudachi (47km), Hubballi-Londa (90km), Kariganur-Hulkoti (102km), Kariganur-Harlapur (71km), Talaku-Chitradurga (50km) and Periyanagathunai-Palakkodu (50km)," said E Vijaya, chief public relations Officer, SWR.
Central Organisation for Railway Electrification, Rail Vikas Nigam Limited, Indian Railway Construction Organisation, Rail India Technical and Economic Services Limited and Power Grid Corporation of India Limited are taking up electrification projects. Rail activists have been demanding electrification of routes in Karnataka be expedited. The project will also help SWR replace DEMU with MEMU, which will mainly help suburban passengers.
Of the 23,765km yet to be electrified across the country, Northeast Frontier Railway has to undertake work on 3,793km and North Western Railway on 3,282km. SWR fares the third worst in rail electrification. In contrast, East Coast Railway, headquartered in Bhubaneswar, has completed electrification of its entire 3,853km network.

In a span of 44-days, the South Western Railway (SWR) ran 233 Shramik special trains transporting more than 3.38 lakh passengers, majority of whom were labourers, to their home towns in 17 States and Union territories of the country.
This ‘service’ has earned SWR Rs 28.9 crore. While the majority of the States receiving the trains have assured of remitting the tickets, and for those States which have not made such commitments, the Karnataka government has decided to foot the bill. Majority of the Rs 28.9 crore has not yet been paid to the SWR.
“The

State government’s have assured of repaying the tickets. Revenue was not the top priority for the railways during the lockdown, but the necessity to transport the stranded people to their home States,” said SWR Central Public Relations Officer E Vijaya and added that a few of the States have already deposited the ticket fares with their respective railway division office.
According to the daily press release, Since May 3, when the first Shramik Express Train commenced its journey from Bengaluru railway station on June 14, SWR has operated 233 trains, majority of which began their journey from Bengaluru division. A total of 195 trains carrying 2.86 lakh passengers were transported from Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna (Bengaluru Station), Bengaluru Cantonment, Chikbanawar and Malur. This was followed by Hubballi division, which operated 21 trains from Hubballi, Hosapete, Bellari and Koppal. Mysuru division saw 12 trains carrying 16,974 passengers depart from Ashokapuram, Kabakaputtur, Hassan and Hosur (Tamil Nadu) to their home districts.
Bihar received a number of trains from Karnataka. As many as 1.07 lakh passengers travelled to various destinations of Bihar in 73 trains. Uttar Pradesh received 51 trains (73,498 passengers) from SWR, followed by West Bengal (27 trains, 40,395 passengers), Jharkhand (21; 30,962), Odisha (16; 24,357), Assam (11; 16,113), while 11 other States received 26 trains with 41,188 passengers. Trains from Karnataka have reached as far as Mizoram, Nagaland and Jammu & Kashmir.
On average, each train carried 1,350 passengers. However, there has also been an exception when the SWR has operated a train from Bengaluru to Guwahati, Assam on June 10 with just 287 passengers followed by Chikbanawar to Udhampur in (J&K union territory) with only 685 passengers on May 17. Whereas a train from Bengaluru cantonment to Balasore in Odisha saw 1,844 passengers travelling.
On 20, May the SWR operated 14 trains to various destination across the country from the three division and transported 21,095 passengers. Similarly, on 17, May SWR had operated 12 trains (16,873 passengers) and 10 trains (13,932 passengers) on May 16. The least number of trains ran on a single day was on June 8 and 14 (one train each, 2350 combined passengers). No trains ran from SWR zone on May 6 and 7.
Meanwhile, SWR received only four Sharmaik expresses from other States. Bengaluru, Hubballi, Yadgir and Vijaypur received one train each. Nearly 1,300 passengers returned to Karnataka in three of these trains.

In spite of the Covid-19 crisis, and the Lockdown being warranted to prevent spread of the virus, first Traction substation at Bellary over South Western Railway has been charged under open access.Power allocation of 10 Mw from BBRCL and power corridor agreement with Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd and Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited has facilitated commissioning of this Traction Sub Station at Bellary.
Yesterday night at odd hours was a historic moment for Hubballi Division of SWR as its first Traction Substation at Bellary to get energized and made live under Open Access policy.Till yesterday power for the recently electrified section of Bellary - Kariganuru and Bellarai - Raydurga section was being extended from Traction Sub Station in Guntakal Division.

Now with the charging ofBellary Traction Sub Station,the power of the overhead equipment is being energized and trains in the section betweenBellary-Tornagallu (34 km) Tornagallu – Ranjithpura (23 Km) and Bellary-Rayadurg sections (53 Km) are being run with AC Locos for 110 Rkms.
Once work of electrification in the sidings of private parties like Jindal, Hottur Ispat, ACC Sidings, FCI Sidings, BMB Siding and Ballari Thermal, Ballari TSS will be able to supply power for another 140 Kms ensuring quicker movement of rakes and improving mobility.
With this Traction substation mobility of train services o­n the section will improve as Electrification will significantly improve mobility trains o­n SWR and strengthen Rail network in Karnataka. In addition to reduction in pollution efficiency of Railway will improve due to shift from fossil fuel to electricity.
It was made possible under the constant endeavour and follow up of Shri B.G.Mallya, PCEE Sir and Shri Arvind Malkhede, DRM /UBL.
