Bidar-Gulbarga rail service by 2015

The three decade old dream of getting a Bidar-Gulbarga train service will become a reality by the end of 2015 after the district administrations of both Bidar and Gulbarga have completed the process of acquiring and transferring the required land in both districts to Indian Railways.

Railway in-charge officer Venkateshwara Rao who is looking after the Bidar-Gulbarga railway-line project from Gulbarga to Humnabad, confirmed that Gulbarga district administration has handed over the required land of 932.27 acres to Indian Railways.

He said that track-laying work between Madarasanhalli and Sultanpur in Gulbarga taluk has already commenced.
