Yes, new terminal can be the better solution for these problems. It was my suggestion to increase the platforms.

How many PF's increase @ SC, the lines leaving SC remains the same. Hence,not much benefit.
LPI is being considered again and along with Falaknama.
Lets see.

The more traffic is from Vijaywada and Guntur, thus a new terminal before Secunderabad is much better when compared to Falaknuma. Where the traffic is much lesser.

The non availability of platforms is primarily due to the MMTS services. A new terminal for locals is much needed

You may be right, but updating the loco to WDM 2 is not on permanent basis. There are various cases, where this train had seen with Moula ali WDM and Kazipet shed. For that we can keep as ' WDM 3A/2'

Shivrampally is a small station which is located on KCG-DHONE single diesel line. This station is very close to National Police Academy and further they called it as NPA Shivrampally.

In the case of those passengers whose surnames are big like mine, the entire surnames do not appear on the reservation chart because only 15 letters or so of a passenger's name can be accommodated in the reservation chart . In that case the TTEs cannot verify the the full names of passengers having long surnames while checking them with their ID card. I think the chart should be made large enough to accommodate the entire surname of each and every passenger. What is your opinion?

Re# 455557-16            Tags   Past Edits
Thats the problem some passengers were facing these days. I will share my experience with all of you regarding this.
I used to travel between Hyderabad and Banglore, once I chosen 12785 and booked a Tatkal Confirmed berth in sleeper class. At the time of booking I entered my PAN number for ID details and in that card my name shows as 'DAVID MATHEWS BEN'.In PAN card its your wish to make your name look alike. Where the surname will be after the first name. Before the rule of ID check for online booking, whenever I enter my full name in the PRS form which is ' BEN DAVID MATHEWS', the clerk shorts it as 'B.D.MATHEWS' and the same
...
more...
appears on the final chart. So, I though that the full name shouldn't be entered, and applied the same rule in online booking too. And in the ticket it comes as ' B D MATHEWS'...as days gone, I didnt encountered any problem with the TTE's. But once in this 12785 train, a TTE raised issue regarding the name. ''In your ticket it was 'B D MATHEWS', but in your ID card it was written as 'DAVID MATHEWS BEN' I don't accept this as your id''. For a moment I was stunned with the shock from him. Later I tried to explain what exactly the problem was, and he accepted finally after a while with a caution 'Don't repeat the same for the next time'.

Therefore I am of the opinion that passengers should be allowed to write their full names, this will help prevent travel on transferred tickets.

Its not mandatory to enter the full name. There will be some technical aspects to display the full name in the charts. You can see majority names are shorted to fit in the chart uniformly. But the TTE's should understand, and never create problem to the passengers. As they are showing the photo identity proof along with the name on it.

To clear confusion the name in the id card and that in the chart should be the same.

I didnt took the Ratnachal express, I dont know about it. But Satavahana and Pinakini deserves the same rank. One is interstate express and the other one connects the capital city from the business capital.

Then its a good move by SCR to experiment this stop. It helps the Southern AP people to use this stop and to the people who visits Tirupati, as it is good pilgrimage center.

Actually the tickets which are booked through Current Resrvation Counter wont be included in any chart. When the TTE checks the ticket, then he manually enters the name and PNR into the chart, thus he can come to know which berths/seats were filled under current reservation and which were left unfilled.
