Best train to Puri from Kolkata is undoutedly Sealdah - Puri duronto. It is the best train in this route. Speed of sealdah - Puri Duronto is best. Second best train is Howrah - Puri Satabdi Exp. Third best train is Sealdah - Puri Puja special.

I have travelled in this station. I watched some problems in the route. This route SDAH - Dankuni is very neglected for a long time. Sometimes train gap at night is 2 hours 15 minutes also. Besides a few Express train stands at Dakshineswar. It is kali temple place. So huge flow of people come here daily. SDAH - Rampurhat Intercity, Kolkata Dwarbhanga need a stoppage. Some SER train like Mumbai / Chennai also demanded at Dakshineswar. It is connected by CCR Chord line & ACC Link. High Staircase also suffers passengers.

It is bad luck for us that a route in main Kolkata suffer from scarcity of trains. So you may imagine what is the situation in the other state in WB. Our family often come at Dakshineswar, we have also faced this problem, we had to take train from Bally gone by auto rickshaw from DAEK as SDAH - DAKE Local is not available.

Most bad section of Sealdah division. Dakshineswar stn is looking like a remote village area stn. Local train is very irregular. Only 6 Mail/Exp train stop here. After 8.32 pm DOWN Local next down train at 10.46 pm. Now think abt this section

Mr pkvenkatramani you are great for your description. I want to add that you have told all correct, but you have not mentioned 4A platform. Total platform at Sealdah is 18.

Sealdah is the busiest station in India. Total 18 platforms not sufficient. Several Hundreds Number of suburban train and huge passenger 20 million crowd hampers punctuality of Sealdah. So Sealdah need total 30 platforms to fulfil public demand.

Barddhaman - Howrah Super which departs Barddhaman at 8.35 am should be terminated at Sealdah. It is very needful for Barddhaman passengers.HWH - BWN Super which departs at 17.27 pm from Howrah should be also shifted to Sealdah. Dalhousi, Burrabazar passengers may be affected. I suggest them to catch the Prinsepghat Local from Dumdum station.

BWN - SDAH Local should depart from Barddhaman at 8.00 am to avoid Rajdhani timing & Galloping Train can reach Sealdah at 9.45 am.

Mamata Banerjee 's performance as Rail Minister was average. She developed some part of West Bengal, but she failed to improve all the backward section in Railways in West Bengal. Outside of Bengal people called her West Bengal Rail Minister, but I want to call her Rail Minister of Howrah section because she improved only Howrah section, Digha section & she inaugurated all the new trains or new project from Howrah station either directly or by remote. She never improved Sealdah section, Asansol Division & North Bengal. She always neglected Sealdah station. Automatic Escalator, Car parking facility is a crying demand at Sealdah stn. She never visited Sealdah stn Kolkata stn & Shalimar stn. It is our grievance that she got 3 years but failed overall development WB Rail. She did not increase train at Howrah - Amta section, Howrah - Haldia section, Midnapur - Bankura, Ranaghat - Lalgola, Sealdah...
- Dankuni secton where train scarcity is huge.

Dinesh Trivedi was totally failed as Rail Minister to improve WB. Actually He does not know about demand for Train of West Bengal. I think Adhir Chowdhury is far better from Dinesh Trivedi. Adhir Chowdhury is a practical man.

Fundamentally wrong you are about Dinesh Trivedi. His plans about Indian Railways and other zonal railways were about to be revealed as Mamata Bannerjee suspended him as a Rail Minister.
