There is NOT A SINGLE DIRECT train for whole Western Part of India like CSTM, BCT, ADI & SURAT with in the KGP & CTC section of SER & ECoR. So, the peoples travelling to those cities are suffering huge problems.
Railways should run a train from HWH to CSTM via KGP, BLS & CTC.

Since a long demand for End to End WAP7 for Puroshottam Express, still Railways is not providing the same. Some time it is running with P4 instead of P7 and regular P4 from KGP to PURI & viceversa.
There should be a WAP7 ELS for SER as well ECoR.

My curiosity lies in what difference do you think a WAP7 would make, sir!
The differences in performance of a WAP7 & WAP4 are far too much alike to cause any significant change in a SF of Purushottam's capabilities...
For crawlers, yes , a P7 can do wonders but there would be no difference in Puru's performance as per what I think...
I should say that WAP4s are far more reliable when compared to WAP7s!

Why ? Train will run according to its time table and speed limits it's not like WAP 7 will make trains run like aeroplanes. Railways knows what they're doing, WAP 4 is not a steam locomotive. I don't know what's wrong with people.

Bhubaneswar first Indian city as one of the finalists in World Smart City Awards at Barcelona:
Bhubaneswar has become the first Indian city selected as one of the finalists to compete for the World Smart City Awards at Barcelona later this month.
The Odisha capital had topped among the first batch of 20 cities that were selected to be developed as smart
city, which is Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s flagship programme.
According to urban development ministry sources, Bhubaneswar had submitted its proposal to the evaluating committee of the World Smart City Awards organised by Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC).
“Any Indian city being finalist is itself a big achievement since the smart city scheme was launched only a year ago. Developing 100 smart cities is a big task. Recognition of the efforts being made by Indian cities at global level will encourage other cities to do better,” a ministry official said. He added the Bhubaneswar team will have to make a presentation before the jury for getting an award.

Bhubaneswar bags third spot in World Smart City Awards 2016:
Bhubaneswar: Bhubaneswar came on as the second runners up in the World Smart City Expo Awards 2016 held at Barcelona on Wednesday.

The awards were selected under many categories after an unprecedented number of entries this year. The cities were shortlisted based on their cutting edge technologies for resolving urban challenges and
improving life of citizens.

Bhubaneswar was awarded for achieving social equity through new urbanism in action. It had already won the best smart city award in the country earlier this year.

The city administration had proposed the a model for developing and achieving social equity by placing children at the centre of its transformation building upon the New Urban Agenda’s three legged approach-local fiscal systems, urban planning, and basic services and infrastructure.

Kenya’s capital Nairobi is the winner of the challenge while Chennai came on the fourth spot, City Mayor AN Jena told newsmen. As many as 250 cities of 45 countries took part in the contest.
