An additional gate to be provided on the East side near Railway Auditorium with ticket window which will facilitate the incoming passengers from the city centre and also help in regulating passengers movement during rush hours over.

Additional ticket counters to be opened for speedy issue of tickers.

Prepaid rickshaw and taxi services should be provided with the area Wise/distance tariff chart

General information of Belgaum city and places of tourist interest in and around Belgaum be displayed with the photographs.

City bus service should be provided to ply on all the part of city from Railway station. 

The Railway Authorities should approach the traders and industries in the town and appeal them to

Make maximum use of the Railway transport facilities. The Belgaum Chamber will be ready to offer their best services and assistance to the Railways in Improving their goods transport business to and from Belgaum. A few years ago, due to the efforts of the Belgaum Chamber the Railways established an ICD at Desur about lO kms from Belgaum station and CONCOR started its operations ever since. To the best of our knowledge the ICD facility is not fully utilized by the exporters and importers from Belgaum as their looks to be some operational hazard. It is possible for the Railways and CONCOR to overcome the same and offer a hazel-free service.

A suggestion is to allow the passenger entry and exit from the eastern side of the station as well, which can be approached from the Goods Shed Road, Belgaum. This will be convenient to a large number of passengers staying in Raviwar Peth, Fort, Gandhinagar, Mal Maruti Extension, Shahapur, Vadgaon, Angol, Hindwadi, Tilakwadi (East), Khasbag and other Eastern and South Eastern suburbs of the City and would reduce the traffic congestion at the Western entrance of the station.

A vending machine may be installed at the entrance of the station to draw the Platform tickets so that long queues can be avoided.

  1. I expected the fanfare of inauguration will be restricted by Mr Kharge on line doubling show, and was sure our Blegaum MP and MLA will hardly open the mouth and will just go for photo ops and stage show
    What is admirable is the Chamber of commerce swiftness, I adore Mr Tendulkars and Mr Javali move in taking opportunity and raising demands for Belgaum , i hope Mr Kharge concede at least not but the much need of the hour Belgaum Dharwad Railway line (Double line) , If he cna have priority for Bidar (border district) connected to Gulbarga , hope he believe and understand what Belgaum means to everyone of us.

  2. Some disappointments too , does any of trains in Maharashtra say from Solhapur starts from Bgalokote , Giulbarga or Bijapur towards Mumbai , then in case of
    Belgaum Why Miraj, we should have trains originating from Belgaum towards south side

  3. The Belgaum Chamber of Commerece has forgot one more link in the memorandum ie :- Vasco – Belgaum-Pune-Manmad-Jhansi-Kanpur- lucknow link. It is requested that BCC add this link in the memorandum as an addendum.

  4. Recently announced HUBLI -LTT Train must be weekly Thrice via MIRAJ PUNE PANVEL and Twice via Gadag Bijapur Solapur Pune and Panvel.
