I dont think KR Market and Chickpet stations will be functional from tomorrow, see the portion marked red from today's deccan herald.

On the other hand, the portion marked blue shows the priorities of our great chief minister

Only the Varshik Cards in use now. At this time, the Sanchar cards are not in use.

Regarding my query about online re-charges, I guess I will know next week

Was able to validate the recharge I had done - and all good.

One more thing - I had put in a grievance that one account should support multiple cards. This feature has been added to the Recharge portal ! I am able to register my 3 cards now. At recharge, the portal asks to choose which card to recharge.

Superb experience from the past two days commuting to office in metro. To ease out the crowd, the green line was already running at 3min frequency yesterday evening. It is only the purple line that is still catching up to 4 min. This has reduced the crowds greatly. Due to the increased frequency, transit time has come down to a max of 3mins either way. Yesterday when I was in transit from Purple line to Green, I could see the green line train crowded to the brim as I got down the stairs. It left and by the time I reached the platform and went to its end, the next train had already arrived.

They still have to sort out the alignment of trains to the exit markings on the platform. Either some operators are not yet used to this, or the Chalta hai attitude has creeped out.

Subways connecting the Kempegowda (Majestic) metro station with the KSR Railway station, BMTC Bus Stand, KSRTC Bus Stand were inaugurated and opened to the public yesterday (this is a network of interconnected subways and connect back the old BBMP owned subway leading to the KSR Railway station).

This report also mentions 2 other subways, one on Tank Bund Road and the other on Minerva mills Road also connecting to the KSR Railway station.
