Mysuru Railway Station adjudged ‘Best Maintained Major Station’

October 14, 2020

Mysore/Mysuru: South Western Railway (SWR) celebrated the 65th Railway Week in Hubballi yesterday and Mysuru Railway Station was adjudged the ‘Best Maintained Station’ for the year 2019-20 under the category of ‘Major’ Stations on SWR. 

Under the Comprehensive Station Redevelopment Plan undertaken in 2019-20, Mysuru Railway Station saw the addition of many passenger-friendly initiatives with adequate care taken to retain the heritage value of the building.  The redevelopment of Station has brought appreciation from different forums calling Mysuru Station as one of the Best Maintained Stations in Indian Railways. 

The Signal and Telecommunication Department (S&T) of SWR Mysuru Division has won the Zonal Efficiency Shield for 2019-20. The S&T Department recently upgraded signalling technology in Sakleshpur-Subramanya Ghat Section in record time, paving way for enhanced safety and sectional capacity despite facing multiple hurdles in the hostile territory as also battling health scare due to COVID. 

The Railways can now explore the possibility of introducing additional passenger services in the Ghat Section, a demand remaining unfulfilled as the Commissioner of Railway Safety had imposed restrictions in operations of passenger services owing to safety reasons. The freight trains can now run at higher speeds leading to higher productivity. The Security Department of Mysuru Division has also bagged the Efficiency Shield for the year 2019-20. 

Adding another feather in the cap of Mysuru Division, the prestigious Swarnajayanthi Weekly Superfast train running between Mysuru and Nizamuddin (New Delhi), which undergoes primary maintenance at Mysuru, was declared as the ‘Best Maintained Rake’ on South Western Railway for the year 2019-20.

ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Mysuru Railway Station adjudged ‘Best Maintained Major Station’”

  1. B SHEKAR says:

    Sir/Madam, Congratulations for the Award given to Mysore Division. Further, I would like to remind DRM, Mysore Division that number of request were made to receive the Chennai-Mysore- Kaveri Express and Chennai-Mysore-Chennai Express in Platform 1 on many occasion and the way the public faced the practical difficulties were ignored and on the same practical problem continues. Running away on Monday early morning at 4.35 a.m. with luggage’s from Platform No.1 to Platform 6 in the early morning is a horrible task, no officials visited and observed people are facing the practical problems. Similarily Chennai-Mysore Kaveri Express also the same situation. Instead of solving the practical problems of public, Mysore Division kept quiet and further Dharwad Mysore Express which ends the destination were received in Platform 1. Now, DRM Mysore Division is transferred and the existing DRM would have sorted out the problems who was heading the Divison. It is very sorry to tell and ultimately public of Mysore are the sufferers. No Officer who are from outside Karnataka are helping the public of Mysore. B SHEKAR MYSORE
