For comparing patna raj's speed with other rajdhani of 130 mps,only Ndls-Mgs (788 km) speed should be taken as it run Mgs-Pnbe (212 km) at 110 mps. and in Ndls-Mgs,it has "89 km/hr" average speed.
even if Mgs-Pnbe is included then overall it touches 85 km/hr as its 30+ mins early at Pnbe mostly. 89 km/hr average in super saturated route is very high. so,how is it slow train as pepole commenting here ?

Situation Totally different
BCT Rajdhani
BCT to Virar 56 km Max Speed = 100kmph
Virar to Godhra 441 km Max Speed = 120kmph
To Ratlam 137 km Max Speed = 100kmph
RTM to NDLS 732 km Max Speed = 130kmph

12951NDLS Rajdhani in 100-120 Section 81 ka Avg Hai Jab ki 130 me 91
12952 BCT Rajdhani in 130 Section 96 avg hai jab ke 100 -120 76 Bcoz Journey Last leg Slack
So Dont Compare BCT Rajdhani N Patna Rajdhani
rahi Baat AK Raajdhani ki To yaha SF ko Jitne Halts Nahi Utne Uske Halts Hai Fir bhi Tagda AVG Speed

What according to IRI members are the 5 top Rajdhanis of India?
Punctuality, Speed, Importance on its route, Maintenance...
For me....
12951/2 MUMBAI RAJDHANI WR (Name is enough :) )
2) 12301/2/5/6 HOWRAH RAJDHANI ER (Indias oldest Raj, topmost priority in NDLS-HWH route)
3) 12313/4 SEALDAH RAJDHANI ER (Very punctual, best maintained among all the east bound Raj's)
4) 12953/4 AGK RAJDHANI WR (Super duper aggressive with sooo many halts, topmost priority after Mum Raj in NDLS-BCT trunk route)
5) 12423/4 Dibrugarh Rajfhani NR (Most important AC train to North East India, from BJU till DBRT, king of its route, well maintained)

Is this train better than the GHY Raj Exp via LKO that arrives exactly at BSB? It is believed that it's quite tough to cover the 17 Kms stretch between BSB and MGS due to broken roads and lack of adequate public transport. Hence, IR considered BSB as an additional commercial stoppage for 12357/12358 when MGS was already there. The same hassles may be faced by passengers of 22313/22314 AC Premium Express in the years to come !!!

instead of concentrating on large number of ac,duronto and floponto trains superfast trains with limited halts and 7-8 ac coaches should be introduced. ac durontos,ac,dd,yuva must be wisely used on fewer routes only.
also available resources must be precisely used such as by extension of any train or by augumentation of extra coaches if possible or increasing frequency of any train etc.
