Please review these two snapshots. I understand Surge pricing increasing with every seat occupation. But I see people talking bout prices going till 10000....and here for two different availability of seats the price is same including Dynamic fare. I might have skipped some (*) noted points in Surge Pricing rules and regulations but Could anyone clear is this the right one or the too much pricing of other tickets are genuine one.

Earlier also injuries or mishap happens as coaches pile up on each other. Due to lesser gap heavier built, coaches now just remain on the ground only...lets hope no major mishap happens.

Today I am facing a very odd situation from IRCTC.
I booked a ticket on 17-Mar-2017 and the PNR is 6162722734, at the booking time the situation was RAC 11, now in the IRCTC website I am finding that the status is WL2.
I never found this kind of situation before.
Can anybody please tell me why this has happened?

May 16 2017 (15:56)   Waltair division revenue takes a hit due to Maoists

VISAKHAPATNAM: The Waltair division of East Coast Railway has witnessed a decline of around 8 per cent in revenue earnings in 2016-17 fiscal at Rs 6,497.53 crore from Rs 7,086.91 crore in 2015-16.
Railway sources said the major reason for decline in total revenue was a drop in freight revenue, which was affected due to disruption in service due to Maoist activity. The Waltair division recorded a decline of around 9 per cent in freight earnings at Rs 5,846.24 crore in 2016-17 as against Rs 6456.84 crore in 2015-16.
In fact, the overall
revenue earnings for the Waltair division is the lowest in last three fiscals. The division's earnings in 2016-17 of Rs 6,497.53 crore is lower than the earnings of Rs 6,655.33 crore in 2014-15.
Incidentally, among the three divisions in East Coast Railway, only Waltair division has witnessed a decline in revenue earnings. Both Khurda division as well as Sambalpur division have increased the revenue earnings in 2016-17 as compared to 2015-16. While revenue earnings at Khurda division increased from Rs 9,608.35 crore in 2015-16 to Rs 10,327.90 crore in 2016-17, Sambalpur division's earnings increased from Rs 893.07 crore to Rs 910.29 crore in the same period.
Railway sources said Maoist activity disrupted freight movement for nearly 60 days in 2016-17, especially on the Kirandul-Kothavalasa line during February and March. In addition to this, Waltair division suffered on account of extreme weather conditions during October and November. In addition to these factors, drop in iron ore export also caused a decline in revenue for the division, sources said.
Railway sources said the Waltair division is expecting to increase its revenue earnings this fiscal .

A SF train should be like this...Stoppage at important station. Whats the difference between Express train and Neelanchal now (For example) for connectivity you should not sacrifice a SF time schedule. This one is even superior to 22831 HWH-SSPN SF Express...!!!!

Well, they load much of the food from KGP, so they can't serve it to us, makes sense but what's the restriction on dinner after 9 PM; all Rajdhanis reach CNB post 9.

1. Booking not allowed from CNB to KGP, yet he is able to board cause of it. He is making a reservation from NDLS which will be counted as a person travelling from NDLS only though he boarded at CNB.
2. The arrival of time at CNB makes it infeasible to provide dinner.
