Some peculiarities of Zee news:
(1) Try to give extensive coverage through "Daily News and Analysis" where is basic roots of the issue including history is covered which facilitate deep understanding of the topic.
(2) Gives exhaustive coverage to news having strategic importance and highlight national interests.
(3) Take up issues to promote national interests with positive outlook, and always giving lessons to
the viewers to think and act in the national interest.
(4) In case of Tejas too detailed coverage was given. India TV coverage too was good.

Still very unreliable. This is the same news channel that, without any fact check called GHY-TVC Exp as most delayed train in India in its popular show called DNA, while any sane journalist after a bit of fact check would realise that present condition of that train is much better than what happened with it in the last century that too once.
DNA is also credited to have widely circulated the myth of tracking chips in 500 and 2000 currency notes.
Hence, not all exhaustive and extensive coverage can be relied.

Re# 2288520-9            Tags   Past Edits
CSTM-Karmali Tejas express is successful on introduction due to :
(1) Craze amongst people to experience the much touted 22 new passenger features
(2) Introduced in the peak season and peak summer time when demand for seats, especially in ac class is on very high.
(3) Good end destinations- Mumbai-Goa is lucrative sector as it has very high air pax traffic.
Giving high priority to Tejas which cover distance in just 8:30hrs as against ACDD which take 11:57 hrs for the journey. Had Tejas taken similar time, the response would have been poorer than present. Journey time is a very important factor. If Tejas does the journey in 6 hrs as planned way back in 2003, one more Tejas (complementary one) shall be required on the route to satiate its demand.
(5) Occupancy of this Tejas during Monsoon TT, when it will take about 11 hrs for the journey needs to be seen
Tejas definitely is not the most successful train ever introduced, Many Brands are many successful brands of trains with decreasing success -Rajdhani, SK, Shatabdi, GR, JanShatabdi, Duronto, HS, ACDD. The place of Tejas brand in the above series may be in the middle range i.e. Shatabdi-HS, much depends on the destinations chosen.
It may be noted that
(1) SK, GR,HS are promoted by IR- by not applying flexifares
(2) Tejas is also promoted by not applying Flexifares and charging just 20% of basic fare over Shatabdi fare for comparatively much better facilities provided. Making catering optional is also a matter of promotion.
(3) HS is also partially promoted by IR by applying much milder flexifares than Raj/Shat/Duro
(4) ACDD is discouraged by IR by not reducing fares for cumbersome seats which cost much lesser to IR.
(5) Rajdhani is the best brand which is giving good patronage in spite of very harsh flexifares imposed on these trains.

Seeing the damages made to Deluxe trains like stealing of Earphones from Tejas, breaking the window glass of Tejas, damaging LEDs, Stealing Towels from AC coaches, Stealing Taps from Humsafar & Mahamana Express, Spoiling the cleanliness in Mahamana Express and many such incidences ..
Railways may think over the damages and some day they get frustrated by these incidences..
Do you think Indian Railways should introduce more such deluxe and state of the art class trains in future?
They have to introduce in any case.8%1
They Should not introduce anymore.75%9

I don't think so, how would a CCTV operate when there is no electricity provided to the rake at the carshed???
CCTV will be functional only when the rake will be attached to a loco

Unique and innovative solution.
Metros are also fully airconditioned and aesthetic trains and may be labelled as deluxe passenger trains and the issue of vandalism in such trains is negligible. The most important reason of this is restricted access to metro stations, as only the bonafide ticket/ pass holders are permitted entry into the Metro stations. The yards where the rakes rest when not in operation too are not accessible to outsiders.
stations where the Deluxe express trains operate too have restricted access, only to bonafide paxs. Most important step necessary is to make arrangements to block the access to the yards and maintenance depot so that only the concerned Rly staff could enter these area where the rakes are placed.
Extensive coverage of station, yard, maintenance depo is necessary to prevent thefts/damages to these beautiful trains.

Okay ur saying the safety at Carsheds
It's a good idea
But what about the case where a passenger himself does such things
Stealing Towels and Earphones were incidences done by passengers onboard
the cleanliness and glory of mahamana Express spoiled by passengers itself
What can be solution for this?

Pluspoints of Bokaro-
(1) Bokaro an A class station- i.e. give more revenue than others. Adra, Bankura, Purulia not even figure in the list of A class stations (Annual revenue of 8 crores or more)
(2) Population of Bokaro(4.5L) is more than the combined population of other cities Adra (0.4L) Bankura(1.5L) Purulia (1.3L).
(3) Bokaro is industrial city and nor prospects of futurw growth

(4) Only drawback of Bokaro steel city is that it is not a junction where as other 3 options are junction. Adra being very important one.

By 2016, actually Bokaro's Population-5.5L, Adra-0.6L,* Bankura-2L, Purulia-4.7L as per reports. Not exact though.
Other than Bokaro, Purulia in WB is now a A Category member.
Bokaro not being a junction doesn't seems a negative point. What's requirement of being a junction when it's already an important one? Still I will consider your points. Good inspective review!

* There can be many perceptions of the word "successful".
* To me IR is a public means of transport, and the measure of success is the number of paxs served on one hand, and the revenue/profits generated by it for IR on the other hand.
* In this respect there is no match for Tatanagar which gives more revenue than the revenues of Rourkela, Jharsuguda and Chakradharpur combined together.
Rightly, Tatanagar is given the stop for the prestegious HWH-CSTM/PUNE Durontos.
