Yesterday a special train left from Howrah at 6:15pm to Bangalore named Examination Special taking away another few thousand students from West Bengal to Bangalore. Around 1,650 passengers took the train to Yeshvantpur. There was huge rush for this train for the Air India Strike as well. A tour operator says due to the Air India strike the fare from Kolkata to Bangalore has simply doubled up. Booking for this train opened on 3rd May 2011.

The usual flight fare in this region is around Rs. 6,000 to Rs.7,000 which suddenly gone up to Rs.13,000(IndiGo) to Rs.21,000(Jet Airways) due to the Air India's strike.

Mamata Banerjee's Railway Ministry had arranged a Special Examination Train to reach Bangalore for the Entrance Exam in the Private Medical & Engineering College to be held on Sunday. This Special train was announced to help the students beat the rush for Bangalore due to the Air India strike.

Several thousand students from Bengal are heading towards Bangalore for further Studies. Every year a Entrance Test held in Bengalore conducted by the
Consortium of Medical & Engineering and Dental College of Karnataka (COMED-K). Most of the students are aspiring Medical Degree.

In Bangalore number of Medical Seats on offer is 4,500 out of which 1,205 seats are especially reserved for Bengal Students. In the total 4,500 seats 2,000 seats are for the private medical colleges are meant for the students outside Karnataka.

Thus we are going to lose another few thousand Doctors & Engineers this year once again due to the limited seats and less job opportunities in so called much more developed state of West Bengal.
