bhai AP AC express is already there which has less occupancy. It should be rather converted as AP rajdhani and a new AP express with sleeper should be introduced for better occupancy.

Im currently travelling in this train. poor patronage in 2ac. 6 2ac coaches but y i dnt understand. I boarded at ramagundam and fully empty. 2 2ac compartments they have emptied to save ac and sent to other coaches still few are spread here n there. Train is hauled by wap7 with sharp pick up and deceleration. bt train is neglected after evry 30mins travel they are sidestepping it for 15mins atleast. I wish to see this LHB coach train as rajdhani in near future with better timings and patronage

Visakhpatnam / Andhra Pradesh to get new Railway Zone in this budget.
PMO has given instructions to RB to form new railway zone through this year's budget according to report of Mittal committee.
So there are more chances that new zone will be created through political decision.
Hope this South (East) Coast Zone has complete WAT, BZA, GNT, GTL divisoins or atleast areas of
AP in those zones.

that is true Guntakal division may be split and tirupati part may be merged with new zone as new zone is completely concentrated on coast line, i think even name would have coast like SEcor or Scoast. What ever may be this decision will surely be a great help for Vizagites. Immediate implementation I would think is daily train to Bangalore and Chennai

Jan 08 2016 (06:59)   Railway zone should be in capital city, says Rayapati

Narsaraopet MP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao said the proposed railway zone should be in the capital city like elsewhere in the country.
“It should be either at Vijayawada or at Guntur. There is a strong demand for it from Visakhapatnam. But, it is not a correct choice as it is prone to natural calamities,” he told media persons after the customary pre-railway budget meeting with South Central Railway General Manager Ravindra Gupta here on Thursday.
Rail connectivity
MP Jayadev Galla said he raised the issue of railway connectivity from the capital city (Amaravati) to metropolitan and other big cities in the country.
Things would hopefully move in the right direction, he asserted, adding that he did not walk out of the meeting to ensure that the all-important railway projects in capital region were not relegated to the background.
YSR Congress MPs Y.V. Subba Reddy (Ongole) and Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy (Nellore) said they had thanked the Ministry of Railways for giving a tangible shape to the Nadikudi-Srikalahasti line. They wanted it to be expedited to help speed up the development of Rayalaseema region.
Rajahmundry MP M. Murali Mohan said he requested the General Manager to make the second line on the arch (bowstring) bridge on the River Godavari at Rajahmundry operational to facilitate the stoppage of traffic on the rail-cum-road bridge for taking maintenance works. The issue was promised to be looked into.
Extension of Machilipatnam-Tirupati Express to Kadapa, speedy execution of Kadapa and Bangalore and Yerraguntla – Nandyal lines, provision of halt of at least one express train at Anaparthi in East Godavari district were among various issues raised by the MPs.
Vizag is not the right place for the zone as it is prone to natural calamities

Friends I tried changing gender in ticket. I went to DRM office to get permission from assistant commercial manager as directed by chief reservation officer. He denied as irctc tickets are not in their control. Somehow luckily I know one TTE he explained to concerned Godavari exp TTE and he allowed me to travel. There shoulld be some provision in IRCTC itself to change such things.

On one side Air asia and Indigo are selling flight tickets starting at 2800/- who will purchase 2AC with 3000 and travel for 36 hrs. This should be converted as rajdhani/duronto with stops where in premium train services like food and cleanliness and speed should be provided. Moreover very less people will prefer 2 days journey.

Air asia is offering ticket at Rs. 1900/- evening departure. Who will prefer 3AC here. Tatkal fare must be removed for this train and should be made regular special. Still 112 3AC tickets pending
