 ‘MAHADEVAPPA MAILAR RAILWAY STATION’


The long-standing demand of the public and public representatives from Haveri District to name the Haveri station after Shri Mahadevappa Mailara has been fulfilled now. The Karnataka Government has issued Gazette notification for the spellings for renaming Haveri Railways station as ‘Mahadevappa Mailara Railway Station’ in Devanagari Script (Hindi), Roman Script (English) and Kannada script.    Earlier, Government of India, Ministry of Home Affairs had given no objection for changing the name of Haveri railway station as ‘Mahadevappa Mailara Railway Station’ vide it’s letter dated 02.07.2019.

Shri Mailara Mahadevappa, an Indian Freedom Fighter and revolutionary was from Haveri district.  At the age of 18, he accompanied Mahatma Gandhi o­n the Dandi March. The sacrifice and courage of Mahadevappa has inspired a large number of people. He sacrificed his life for the service of the society and liberation of the country.

Shri AK Singh,General Manger, South Western Railway said that recently Hubballi station is renamed after Shri Siddharoodha Swamiji and now Haveri station is renamed. This shows the commitment of Railways to serve the State and helps to \ connect with the glorious history of the region. It's a tribute to the young revolutionary Mailara Mahadevappa who in his short but eventful life contributed significantly to freedom struggle. He organised as many as 74 different movements to protest against and topple colonial rule
