I can state that Malwa express is faster than 22942, 22462, 12476, 12550, 19806, 11078, and 14034 in between Jammu and Delhi. I have taken taken this train from Dasuya and always relied on this to travel. Remember Indore (MHOW) and parts of Punjab/ Jammu served by this train are military cantonments. Near Dasuya we have Uchi Bassi, Talwara, and near Mukerian we have Tibri, Mirthal etc. For most local passengers, Pathankot to Jalandhar etc there is a Sri Ganga Nagar express which runs around the same time as Malwa. People prefer that as it is cheaper (no super fast charges). Only Military people and people paying fares for long routes utilize this train. I hope for the sake of Military personal and other passengers who travel for long distances no one will not write letters to discontinue its local stops. According to Ferozpur division manager, Dasuya sell (or reserve) more...
Let me clarify this confusion over the name. Dasuya is an official name of this town but railway station is spelled as Dasua. Either some one mixed up the spellings or railway admin did not really bother to verify with district authorities. This has caused confusion to several people. So Dasuya is used in maps/ google/ wiki/ official purposes but Dasua is used by railways.
It is sad that even though Dasuya is an important station with a cantonment just 4 km away not many trains are stopped here. In addition this is the major station in District Hoshiarpur and has many more trains stopping/ passing through here than Hoshiarpur itself. This station also has a potential to tap NRIs flying to Delhi and trying to reach Doaba belt. On any given day atleast 4 passengers board AC1st class in Jammu mail (out of 16 seats) or Dauladhar (8seats). ACII, ACIII or Sleeper class seats in Malwa or Jammu mail going to Delhi are always waiting listed. Currently NRIs come to Jalandhar either by bus or train and travel by taxis for an hr or two to reach Miani/ Begowal/ Dasuya belt. Indian railways should focus on developing 3rd tier towns like Dasuya which has great potential and it will also ease pressure from Jalandhar/ Ludhiana...

Mcdonalds has now opened in Jammu some days back otherwise this was the only one between jammu and jalanhar, nice pictures.
Dasuya railways station is comparability clean and well equipped. Overhead bridge serves it purpose but railway tracks are dirty due to open exhaust system of trains. Toilets located at platform 1 at the station are generally kept locked with an excuse that they are for DMU passengers. They are extremely dirty. Platform 1 has a tea/ snacks shop. Several long route trains stop at this location. Every train has passengers travelling in AC compartments or reserved classes but no waiting room is present at the station. Reservation counter is extremely busy with just one operator eventhough they have two windows. Ticket counter is located towards the national highway. Given its location near to the Himachal (Chintpurni, Kangra and Una districts), Dasuya cantonment area (Ucchi bassi) and one of the largest sub division of the Hoshiarpur district, more trains should stop at this station. Some of them which will help passengers are...
