Hi All,
Want to post my outlook about suvidha trains in IR from more than a month.Finally posting
In terms of ease , speed etc features makes these train ticket prices under dynamic fare concept even higher than normal ticket fare. Acceptable if IR providing the same flexibleness, features as promised. Not opposing with all premium
trains as some are having LHB coaches and AC coaches. Other category trains which are running as tatkal fare trains turned to premium causing big hole to passengers pockets. How can normal train become a premium without offering any facilities and using those pathetic old rust ICF rakes with higher fares. IR also following those bus travelers steps. normal sleeper ticket under KJM-VSKP train cost 1500 under these trains which is so miserable . Officials consider common man view and define ticket prices. I was utterly shocked after watching this. People are travelling as they don't have other options as bus charges more than that also tough to get tatkal ticket . Good point with bus travels is they offering these high prices to A/C luxury buses. However in this trains example-VSKP-KJM,YPR-SBP (not aware its running as premium)are normal trains and suddenly at current holiday seasons train categories upgraded to premium with no facilities but steep in prices. It's very tough for every common man . I never traveled under premiums also out of country from long period . I follow IRI and felt bad when these trains turned to premium makes me to share my opinion about IR manners turning towards money and not with common man. Apologies if anything wrong under the info which am mentioned. Opinions are welcome

Worst schedule for a premier train.
BZA-DVD 6 hr 40 min ?? Amaravati with 4 stops is able to do 5 hrs only...why a premier non stop trains needs to be this much slow ??

then it will pass through VSKP is better as normal trains also take 6.30 from BZa to vSKP . YPR-HTE some times will take 5.30 min .
Dont know every time they are trying to skip VSKP.

once again 2 trains leaving VSKP. Dont know why every time IR people is doing like this.so many people are traveling from SBC/MAS to VSKP .There is no proper connectivity from DVD . Instead of skipping VSKP better they can adjust time slots in other places and passing trains through VSKP is far better and railways will mint money if its passing through it. always from SBC to VSKP trains are fully occupied . When this situations will stop and VSKP people will get fruitful days.So horrible every time new trains are skipping .
BBS-YPR premium train is passing through VSKP then why these HWH-YPr,HWH-MAs are skipping. NO solution for this ?source Zones will prepare TT or other
zones ? and they can't able to check people will prefer or not if those are by passing and ultimately IR will loose money from passengers who opt other options compare to these .

Shame that the biggest city VSKP after Chennai and Kolkata in this path is being treated shabbily and IR will pay the price for its wrong policies and doings.
