Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru has proposed a High Speed Rail (HSR) corridor from Yeshwantpura in Bengaluru to the Commercial Centre of North Karnataka, Hubballi.
According to a report published in Times of India, the High speed rail corridor will have a route length of 400km, and it can be taken up along the current railway network.
IISc has proposed 5 stations along the corridor at Yeshwantpura (near IISc campus), Tumakuru, Chitradurga (near IISc new campus at Challakere), Davanagere and Hubballi.

of now, India does not have any High Speed Rail corridors, or lines operating at 200 km/h or above. But the country have proposed many HSRs. The details are as follows.
The first High Speed Rail corridor of length 508km is already under construction between Mumbai and Ahmedabad. The HSR will have a top operational speed of 320km/h.
The corridor will use Standard Gauge and will be built with Shikansen technology of Japan. It is expected to carry passengers within three hours and the fare expected to be less than flight fares.
Few other High Speed Rail Corridors proposed in India and expected completion of construction is as follows:
Saransh Sahu, a former M.tech student at IISc and Ashish Verma has presenting a research paper titled ‘Quantifying wider economic impacts of HSR connectivity in Karnataka’.
According to them, Inter-regional high-speed connectivity and accessibility through public transportation modes such as High Speed Rail is crucial for sustainable and uniform development.
However, it can be a costly affair considering the enormous capital it requires against direct user benefits.

The recent govt directive mandating open tendering of railway projects is likely to boost competitiveness and cut costs for transporter
In a recent decision that is likely to boost competitiveness in the sector, the Ministry of Railways has directed that all railway works will be allotted through open tendering. Thus, PSUs will now have to compete with private sector players to secure railway contracts. The Railway Board is trying to eliminate an intermediate layer so that it can get the best possible price for works and create greater transparency in project allocation.
While

private players will now be able to secure orders directly (unlike earlier when they were subcontracted by PSUs) and hence increase their order book, PSUs which have executed complex projects in the past will have the opportunity to explore international markets and/or focus more, India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra) has highlighted in a recent report.
As per the earlier system, the Railway Board used to award projects based on competitive bidding among PSU players that were part of a selected master list. The PSUs selected would then float tenders in the open market. For instance, during H1FY22, zonal railways allocated projects worth Rs 47,780 mn to PSUs such as the Indian Railway Construction Ltd (IRCON) and Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation Ltd, while these PSUs floated tenders worth Rs 19,130 mn for private players.
In the wake of the recent decision, private players such as GPT Infra Ltd, KEC International Ltd, Rahee Infratech Ltd, and Texmaco Rail Engineering Ltd will bid for projects directly, with the increase in the number of competitive bids helping the railways reduce costs, the report said. On the flip side, this can impact the margins of PSU players which will now have to compete with a larger number of players. Private players too will have to go the extra mile to execute projects, since this would require a high degree of coordination with various departments.
As part of the new mechanism, the ministry has also cancelled orders where a letter of acceptance had not been issued or an MoU not been signed or where no major contractual obligation had been undertaken in any form. This directive has impacted the Rail India Technical and Economic Service Ltd (RITES) which in Q2FY22 received orders for laying of new lines for Belgaum-Dharwad through Kittur; Shimoga-Shikaripura-Ranebennur; and Tumkur-Devangere through Chitradurga, worth Rs 40,279 mn.
The overhauling of the bidding process has stemmed from the huge increase in capital expenditure the railway sector has seen in recent years – capex has risen at a CAGR of 15% from Rs 1,082 bn in 2017 to Rs 2,150 bn in 2022. In what indicates the import of the recent decision on EPC players, as much as 75% of the budgeted outlay in FY22 is directly focussed on construction and allied activities.
As it is, competition in the sector has shown an uptrend of late. While competition moderately increased in FY21, with around 10% of the overall orders witnessing the participation of more than five players, the figure went up to 14% in H1FY22. With the railways seeking to create a level playing field for projects and opening the door for more private players to participate in tenders, Ind-Ra expects this trend to continue in the future.

Stranded in Raichur, hundreds of angry aspirants blocked the railway track demanding justice
Around 1,000 persons, who were travelling to Kalaburagi to attend KPSC competitive exam for recruitment of assistant executive engineers (AEE), could not attend the exam as the Hasan-Solapur Express (11312) was delayed by nearly 5 hours.
Many aspirants in south Karnataka had travelled to Hassan in an effort to reach the exam on time, while the Railways was made aware of the students' concerns several days before the exam date.

in Raichur, hundreds of angry aspirants blocked the railway track demanding justice. The railway officials who came to pacify them had to face flak. 
Rekha, an aspirant from Chitradurga, said the train left at 8.30 pm on Sunday. "This is an exam that was postponed for more than two and a half years. We were supposed to reach Kalaburagi at 6.30 am. The five hours delay has caused great injustice. Let them reschedule the exam and give us another chance," she demanded.
However, the South Central Railway (SCR) which had scheduled non-interlocking work on December 12, 13 and 14 did not consider the concerns of the students, who lost the chance to write the exam that began at 10 am.
Mahendra, an aspirant, told Deccan herald that students were unnecessarily made to suffer. "The express train got delayed by 4-5 hours. So we could not reach exam centre on time. There were around 800-900 serious aspirants on the train," he said. 
Abhishek R, an activist, noted that the railways could have postponed the work by a day. "Work was anyway delayed by many days and one more day wouldn't have had any impact. They are playing with the future of Karnataka students," he said.
From the South Western Railway, Chief Public Relations Officer E Vijaya said several trains were delayed because of technical issues involved in the line-block that was set up for ongoing doubling works in Hindupur.
"Some trains were detained last night. Efforts were made to improve their running and real-time monitoring is being done. Basava Express reached Kalaburagi at 8.11 am and Solapur-Hassan express reached Yesvantpur at 8.15 am," she said.
