Very Good Morning to all at IRI .
25. The policy of converting the saturated metre gauge and narrow gauge lines to broad gauge with a view to progressively achieving one uniform gauge in the
country was continued during this year. Thirteen gauge conversion projects are at present in progress. In this case also, we are concentrating on some of the projects to complete them fully instead of tinkering with all of
them simultaneously. As a result of this policy, it has been possible to complete the ErnakulamTrivandrum gauge conversion project in Kerala. The Suratgarh-Bhatinda Project in Rajasthan and Punjab is also nearing completion. High priority is being given to the conversion of Barabanki Samastipur Section in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar and the Viramgam-Okha Section in Gujarat on which substantial progress has been made. Work is in good progress on the Bongaigaon-Gauhati Project in Assam and GuntakalBangalore Project in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. Work will also be started on Manmad-Aurangabad Section of Manmad-Parli Vaijnath conversion project in the Marathwada region of Maharashtra also during the year. In the budget for 1978-79, gauge conversion of Barauni-Katihar line in Bihar has been included. This line is an operational necessity and, when completed, would give fillip to the development of north Bihar.

Chances to get confirmed seat on MAO-MRJ in AC 2 Tier? Operates on PQWL. Can I travel on W/L? Don't want to be thrown out if on W/L.

Re# 759376-1            Tags   Past Edits
Yeah you may have to pay fine if you board before boarding point what you have specified. But considering practically, HYB and SC are pretty close and in most of the cases, TTE boards at SC which may help you if you travel with a general ticket from HYB to SC.
