rdb*^ 126032 news posts
The prestigious Duronto Express, considered to be the fastest train between the largest city in AP – Visakhapatnam – and Secunderabad, seems to be losing its sheen. “I travelled on this premium train paying Rs.1,542 in 3rd AC. I was disgusted to find that the taps in the toilet ran dry soon after the train commenced its run from Vizag,” says S. Ganapathiraju of Hyderabad, who travelled by this train on Thursday.
“The train was stopped for about 30 minutes at the outer signal at Secunderabad to the agony of passengers,” he adds.
It should be converted to Normal AC SF Exp & its frequency should be made daily .. so that dynamic fares burden will not be levied on passengers
The dynamic fare system I'll be reviewed shortly as it didn't give the desired results what railway board expected as per my view. If we want it to be converted to normal express to remove the he burden of dynamic fares then we should equally be ready for increase in running time by 60 mins. Godavari takes 12+ hrs to reach Secunderabad while duronto takes 10.5 hrs which is a saving of nearly 90 mins. So we should be ready to pay 10% more.
