This year again the Railway budget 2011-12 presented by Mamta didi has been disappointing for Belgaumites. We all need to say, “Kaash Belgaum Bengal mein hota” then we would have got many trains.
Kolhapur – Dharwad route will be surveyed.
No new trains or extensions as well, this budget was the most disappointing.
Some more general Positives of the Budget:
A new portal for e-ticketing to be launched shortly. Booking charges will be cheaper with a charge of only Rs. 10 for AC classes and Rs.5 for others.
Senior Citizens concession to be hiked from 30 % to 40 %.
