really bad slot for pax of jodhpur arriving at 4 am.
however bkn-bdts is in the slot of bgkt-bdts from jodhpur. this slot is also not good.
they could have taken the slot of ju-bct lhb special which arrived at bvt at around 6:15 am in the morning.
I think this will be a flop, until and unless there is big a holiday rush.

Travelling today to jodhpur. Stopped at vedcha station for 15 minutes to give way to one rajdhani, don't know which one. Still reached surat 3 min before time. No need to stop a sf train which has no halt between bvi and St. Instead it should be speed up by 15 min

I have one suggestion. all those trains where premium tatkal quota is there should be converted to LHB and given importance equivalent to duronto/shatabdi. Hence no duronto/shatabdi should overtake such trains until and unless there is additional stoppage in between. Till the time this is done, premium tatkal quota should be abolished from such trains

भोपाल पैसेंजर में किराया जोधपुर से बढ़ेगा, स्पीड सवाई माधोपुर से
bhaskar news | Mar 18,2017 05:07 IST
प्रतीकात्मक तस्वीर
जोधपुर. जोधपुर से भोपाल जाने वाली पैसेंजर ट्रेन 12 जुलाई से एक्सप्रेस हो जाएगी। रेलवे इस ट्रेन के नंबर भी बदलेगा। किराया भी एक्सप्रेस ट्रेन का लगेगा, लेकिन जोधपुर से सवाई माधोपुर तक पैसेंजर ट्रेन की तरह ही चलेगी। ऐसे में यात्रियों को अब
सवाई माधोपुर तक पहले वाले समय तक सफर करने के बावजूद ज्यादा किराया देना होगा।

रेलवे प्रशासन का कहना है कि उनका यह फैसला यात्रियों के हित में लिया गया है। जोधपुर से चलने वाली भोपाल पैसेंजर ट्रेन संख्या 54811 अब नए नंबर 14813 से सुबह 8:05 बजे रवाना होकर अगले दिन सुबह 9:10 बजे भोपाल पहुंचेगी। वापसी में भोपाल से आने वाली ट्रेन का नंबर 54812 की जगह 14814 हो जाएगा और यह वहां से शाम 5:25 बजे चलकर अगले दिन रात 8:20 बजे जोधपुर आएगी।

रेलवे प्रवक्ता ने बताया कि जोधपुर से सवाई माधोपुर के बीच ट्रेन के समय और ठहराव में कोई बदलाव नहीं होगा। सवाई माधोपुर भोपाल के बीच आठ ठहराव कम किए गए हैं। ऐसे में अब यह ट्रेन जोधपुर से भोपाल के बीच 26.45 घंटे की जगह 25.05 घंटे में सफर तय करेगी। वापसी में 1.15 घंटे का सफर कम होगा। ट्रेन के जोधपुर से सवाई माधोपुर के बीच पैसेंजर की तरह ही चलने के बावजूद यात्रियों को एक्सप्रेस का किराया देना होगा। स्लीपर क्लास में 40 से 90 और सैकंड सीटिंग में 25 से 65 रुपए किराया बढ़ जाएगा। जोधपुर से भोपाल के सफर में 1:40 मिनट का सफर कम होगा लेकिन स्लीपर क्लास का टिकट 155 सैकंड सीटिंग का 105 रुपए महंगा हो जाएगा।

This train is a passenger train and shall be a passenger train even after the so called upgradation. Not only the avg speed, the number of stops confirms this statement. For an express train atleast 20km per stop should be avg distance and avg. speed should be 45kmph+ (except for hilly/tough BG terrains and MG/ NG trains.
This move is probably intended to increase revenue or indirectly increase fare.

Entry# 2206895   News Entry# 296735         Tags   Past Edits
डूंगरपुर। पूर्वसांसद और कांग्रेस के राष्ट्रीय सचिव ताराचंद भगोरा ने भाजपा सरकार पर वागड़ के विकास को रोकने का आरोप लगाते हुए डूंगरपुर बांसवाड़ा रतलाम रेल परियोजना के लिए राशि आवंटित करने की मांग की है। भगोरा ने कहा कि वसुंधरा सरकार जल्द से जल्द रेल परियोजना का शुरू करें।
उन्होंने कहा कि राज्य में भाजपा सरकार आने के साथ ही यह रेल परियोजना रुक गई है। भूमि अवाप्ति के लिए करीब डेढ़ सौ करोड़ रुपए की आवश्यकता है लेकिन भाजपा सरकार यह राशि नहीं दे रही है। कांग्रेस राज में डूंगरपुर बांसवाड़ा रतलाम प्रोजेक्ट की शुरूआत हुई और राशि भी खर्च हुई। 0 से 17 किमी. तक का काम शुरू हुआ लेकिन भाजपा के राज में आने के बाद यह
काम बंद हो गया। इस बजट से भी उम्मीद थी कि इस प्रोजेक्ट के लिए राशि मिलेगी लेकिन यहां के जनप्रतिनिधियों की अनदेखी के चलते डेढ़ सौ करोड़ रुपए की राशि नहीं मिल रही है।
भाजपा के विधायक और सांसद इस प्रोजेक्ट को शुरू कराने में कोई रूचि नहीं दिखा रहे हैं। खामियाजा वागड़ की जनता को भुगतना पड़ रहा है।

Jodhpur: Security has been beefed up at Jodhpur railway station following a letter allegedly by IS threatening to blow up Dholpur railway station. An alert was issued in Jodhpur after which GRP sprang into action.Every nuke and corner of the station premises was searched minutely and all arriving trains were examined with sniffer dogs to find out any suspicious material.SP (GRP) Lalit Maheshwari said though there was no specific threat for Jodhpur railway station but an alert has been issued as a precautionary measure.He said GRP has been keeping a close eye on every movement on the railway station as well as keeping a check on all arriving and departing trains.Police have been checking passengers and luggage at the station using the dog squad. Besides, persons at the station with no specific purpose are being asked to leave after checking and baggers have been cleared from the station."We have also appealed...
to passengers to report any suspicious object or movements in or around the station immediately so that timely action can be taken in order to ward off any threat," said Maheshwari.GRP personnel deployed other stations under Jodhpur Division have also been directed to be alert and step up surveillance for any suspicious activity.
