Run more DEMU/passenger trains in Hosur-Bengaluru route

To the Ministry of Indian Railways,


Dear Sir/Madam,

  There are huge number of daily commuters between south-east and north-west part of Bengaluru as well as between two cities Bengaluru & Hosur. Most famous and convenient way is to use Bengaluru-Hosur Road ( NH7), or using the DEMU/passenger trains, run on Hosur-Bengaluru route, which is currently a single-track-railway route belongs to South-Western-Railways. There are very few passenger trains (e.g. 76553/76554 DPJ-SBC PASS, 06591/06592 HSRA-YPR, 56241/56242 YPR-SA PASS, etc.) run on this track daily. In most of the cases the interested daily commuters are not able to use train due to lack of frequency of the trains. If one train is missed for some reason, commuters have difficulties to avail the alternatives, since most of the stations on this route are located in a remote place, and not well connected with main roads. The Hosur-Bengaluru single-track-railway connects around multiple popular source/destinations for daily commuters, like Electronic City, Sarjapur Road, IT parks in Outer Ring Road around Belandur etc. Due to recent Road widening/Metro construction work by BMRCL, many of the important roads in Bengaluru are causing slow-moving traffic, and Bengaluru has been anyway infamous for it's horrible traffic. 

 If Railways can start more number of passenger trains on this route daily basis, commuters can use the trains more often, as a result load on the road-traffic in many places can be reduced. My humble request to the Ministry of Inidian Railways, to look for the possible ways to run DEMU/passenger trains in every half/one hour on this route on both direction during the busy hours( especially 6AM-11AM, and 4PM-9PM).
