They are implemented pretty much on all the routes which have signalling systems, but it is not utilized fully, like having automatic blocks and automatic signalling. In many railway systems, track circuits are also used to monitor the track conditions. It is quite possible to upgrade the track circuits to automatically turn signals to red upon detecting a broken piece of track, and with some advanced features, it is possible to identify large irregularities like an incompletely sawn-off track. IR did some experiments with such signalling systems on some routes, but mostly the equipment was stolen.

1. Travelled from VSKP-Eluru in VSKP-BZA Passenger day time pass. Me & my brother had planned for this journey, but he dropped in the last moment and I continued the journey.
Too many express trains overtook it, lunch was a problem as no where I got proper food. Due to so many overtakes it ran some 2hrs late though started on time from VSKP. Totally took 10hrs for VSKP-EE where expresses take 5hrs max.
2. Later me & my bro again planned for night out journey for VSKP-EE stretch in Rayagada-BZA pass which
is even overtaken by freights. It stopped at Nidadavolu for 1.5hrs during which the freights it overtook on the way again overtake the pass back. We were completely drained of energy by morning due to night out and reached EE at 7AM.

REAL GARIBS are living in SRIKAKULAM district . But S.C.Railway is not in favor of extending the GARIB RATH EXPRESS up to PALASA. It is high time the train is extended up to PALASA to provide a chance to the people of sklm district to experience the travel by AC coaches.

But I feel there is no chance of extending till BBS as now GR rakes are not being manufactured and its frequency cannot be reduced, so wont it be good if its extended till Palasa & returning the same day ??

i believe every small big stn should have at least 1 or 2 pitlines for 15-16 coaches, so that basic PM can be done.
Why bigger stn always take the load.
