Today i m going to bust some myths that indian railways is heavily subsidized and all that..I am going to compare the fare of indian semi bullet train Gatimaan with Semi bullet (D class max speed 250 kmph) plying between shanghai and Hangzhou..
The distance between shangai and Hangzhou is almost 160 km and fare varies from 8-9 USD if converted in rupees then it will cost something around 560-630 ₹ while nzm and agc are almost 190 KM apart and mps of gatimaan is just 160 even though its fare varies between 800-1500...so in that case how can we say that indian railways is heavily subsided ?

Sealdah is mainly occupied by local and Assam/North Bengal bound trains. Also trains from south have to crawl over the whole Kolkata city to reach upto SDAH which includes crossing the river, same goes for Chitpur also.
Howrah, Santragachi and Shalimar are the most feasible points for South bound trains, however Shalimar is least preferred option for catching a train due to its poor connectivity and Santragachi also has some terminal limitations. Hence railways has no choice but to knock the platforms of HWH.

Howrah is difficult to access from East part & North Part of Kolkata. So Sealdah or Chitpur is best option. South India Bound train may come via Bhattanagar , Rajchandrapur, & Dumdum. Then the train crawl 7 km to Sealdah & 4 km to Chitpur. I think it is no problem to cross Hooghly River via Bally Bridge as speed of this CCR section is 90 km per hour & Andul of SER is not far. Rail is intentionally congest Howrah by excess train. I suggest at least 10 trains should be South India from Sealdah division

To decongest HWH the best solution I believe is to develop SHM in the same lines as ANVT was developed to support NDLS.
SHM has massive space and can easily accommodate 8-9 platforms along with a huge yard. Just the state government has to sort out the connectivity issue.

I suggest no new train at Howrah & Sealdah
New train should be at Chitpur KOAA, Shalimar or Dankuni.
Anew long platform built in Dankuni, substitute of Howrah

Jamalpur - Sealdah Janshatabdi Express would be better tha Jamalpur - Howrah Janshatabdi as huge train demand exist in Sealdah & there are no single Janshatabdi Express in Sealdah Division. Jamalpur - Kolkata Terminal (Chitpur) may be good.

infact the KOAA-SMI weekly express can be extended to RXL as it follows the same TT as that of HWH-RXL bi-weekly...
But the nice thing is to see whether the JS will have PM at HWH or JMP !!!!!

Flexi fare Hike in AC 2 & AC 3 tire with 10% for wach 10% seat filled up.................... I think it is very bad decision by Railways. Actually Rail is puzzled after 7th Pay Commission. Huge burde of salary, so Rail wants to make up by fooling passengers. But Suresh Prabhu forget that people are now very educated. I want to suggest some point. 1) Rail Employee gets free pass for travel, it should be stopped 2) Free Medical facility should be stopped, only Gangman, Field staff should get facility as they work in risk. 3) stop corruption in Railways, 70% Rail Employee are taking bribe (BAKSISH). TTE sells berth in running train, Reservation Officer sells ticket with black money with Agent, RPF taking illegal money from offender who steals Railway property. Rail Officers are taking huge money from tender. That is why Rail in in ICU. No Rail Minister can...
set back the glory & economy of Railways. Suresh Prabhu is an honest gentle man, so he can not solve the corruption of Railways. I love Railways, but very regret for its falling glory. A strong Minister can solve.

One major factor that differentiates from this inc's is burden of pensioners.90% of railway income is going towards feeding these pensioners (totally useless in current scenario) and staff.
This flexi fare scheme was also a desperate step by rail admin to generate funds for pay and pension according to 7th pay commission but it looks to have failed miserably

Behavior of Rail Employees are very rude & should be changed. I bought Ticket of Rs 1335 today. I gave ECRC Rs 1340. But he refused to pay Rs 5 change. He tell me I have to collect Rs 5 coin, Though the ECRC had huge coins. Then I lost patients & requested to the ECRC. The he told me why have you come without coin ? Then he told me what is the value of this Rs 5, why am I waiting for change ? As very few people visited at the counter I can ask 2 or 3 people for coin of Rs 10. At last I returned without taking change. This incident happened one year ago when I bought Rs 6930 ticket. I gave him Rs 7000, but he refused to retur Rs 70 & I have to wait 20 minutes & at last I collected Rs...
