Re-quotation invited and LOA issued on 14.11.2022. Demolition of structures completed. Invited quotation for tree cutting. Request submitted to Secretary, PWD for revised AS on 15.12.2021. As requested by RBDCK, Secretary PWD Issued letter to Member Infrastructure, Railway for inclusion in Railway Work Plan on 18.07.2022 and 01.09.2022. GoK has informed that the request for revised AS can be considered only after the re-inclusion of this ROB in Railway Pink Book. During the bi-monthly coordination meeting with railways held on 08.06.2023, it was informed that the proposal for inclusion of Karamana ROB was not sanctioned as the TVU at the LC is less than 1 lakh. Hence requested DRM Southern Railways for conducting re-survey for the calculation of TVU so as to include the work in latest Railway work plan on 20.07.2023 and also requested Additional Private Secretary to Hon. Minister for Road transport, GoK to intervene in the matter vide letter dated 20.07.2023.
