Thats because of RSA with RNC/DBRG Rajdhani.
This 3 Rajdhani doesnot have any dedicated rake and have RSA so sometime old rake and some time rake with new coaches are seen.

Have some shame NR zonal staff, your zonal Rajdhani (Bilaspur) which is on time is being stopped/halted for letting in another Rajdhani (Bhubaneshwar) of a different zone, which is I believe is late. Please terminate this Rajdhani at Nizamuddin. It will benefit many passengers.

Compounding the woes of the Railways, total earnings from goods and passengers fell by over 11 per cent from the target in September this year as against the last year for the same period, causing concern in the rail administration.
Railways have earned Rs 12,413.96 crore in September this year as against the target of Rs 13,961.91 crore for the month, a decrease of 11.09 per cent.
The total earnings from goods in September was Rs 7,719.52 crore as against the target of Rs 8,564.27 crore, a decline of 9.86 per cent, according
to Railway Ministry data.
In passenger segment also the earnings are way behind the target as railways earned Rs 3,815.43 crore as against the target of Rs 4,253.71 cr, a decrease of 10.30 per cent.
Passenger bookings were also fell short of target with total 683.17 million passengers booked in September as against the target of 686.61 million.
The Railways has recently rationalised the freight rate to attract more loadings and introduced flexi-fare system in premier service including Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains to shore up revenue collection.
Admitting decline in revenue collection, a senior Railway Ministry official said, “There is a general decline in demand and it is a cause of concern. Several steps are being initiated to perk up the earnings.”
Railways has announced many ambitious projects including massive expansion and modernisation of rail network and the shortfall in earnings could cause problem in its future plan.- PTI

Yes it is bound to fall as a result of surge pricing mischievously coined flexi fare. Almost all short distance passengers who used to utilize the services of the Shatabdi are going by Volvo, deluxe, super deluxe AC buses. Moreover Spicejet, Air Asia, Air India are offering very good schemes. In a market driven economy this is bound to happen. Who will pay 50% above the regular fare for journey in trains which lack punctuality, cleanliness, good catering facilities.

Oct 12 2016 (12:12)   Rajdhani, Shatabdi travel time reduced, says Railways

Route Relay Interlocking system was installed on busy routes to ensure faster movement of trains and this has resulted in reduction in journey time of several trains
New Delhi: A signalling system upgrade on congested routes has helped the Indian Railways reduce the running time of 14 premier trains, including the Rajdhani Expresses from the national capital to Howrah and the Patna and Delhi-Amritsar Shatabdi.
A total of 350 Mails/Expresses and 74 Superfast trains, including Rajdhanis and Shatabdis, are now reaching destinations 5-25 minutes before time because of removal of bottlenecks and rationalisation
of timetable, said a senior railway ministry official.
The journey time of Rajdhani services for Bhubaneswar, Sealdah and Dibrugarh and Chennai-Coimbatore and Howrah-Puri Shatabdi trains has come down due to the improvement in the signalling system.
The official said the Route Relay Interlocking (RRI) system was installed on busy routes to ensure faster movement of trains and this has resulted in reduction in journey time of several trains.
Route Relay Interlocking system is used in large and busy stations that have to handle high volumes of train movements. Under the system, an entire route through the station can be selected and all the associated points and signals along the route can be set at once by a switch for receiving, holding, blocking, or dispatching trains.
Interlockings operate solely without a human operator. “We have managed to save total 130 minutes in 12 Rajdhani trains and 60 minutes in six Shatandi trains due to various measures being undertaken in a gradual manner,” he said, adding that “major changes were carried out at Allahabad junction, the most congested section, to speed up services.”
Besides, construction of rail overbridges, underbridges and limited height subways at many level crossings on the busy routes resulted in doing away with halting time. The reduction in journey time has been included in the new timetable, effective from 1 October.

Oct 03 2016 (12:56)   Your travel on Rajdhani, August Kranti to get better

Passengers on Mumbai-New Delhi Rajdhani and August Kranti Express travelling in AC coaches will soon be greeted and welcomed by train staffers.
The Western Railway has planned to introduce new service protocol with the help of Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) by October 10.
The railways has proposed the initiative in Mumbai after the introduction of rail hostess in Delhi-Agra Gatiman Express.
the idea behind the initiative, Mukul Jain, division railway manager of Mumbai Central division of WR, said the ticket checkers and catering staff will greet every passenger before the journey.
“The train superintendent, ticket checkers and staffers will welcome passengers and introduce themselves. They will hand over napkins, water bottles and Rail Bandhu magazine to passengers,” added Jain.

IRCTC will train staffers in etiquette and protocol before implementing it, said a senior official.
WR also launched printed bed sheets, recyclable napkins and pillow covers and eco-friendly bags made of newspapers. These have been made by inmates of jails in the state.
Railway officials said low-cost printed bed sheets, smaller than the previous ones, be introduced for the first time. Passengers will be asked to give feedback by filling forms which will be distributed with the bedrolls. They can also give feedback through a mobile app. Jain said this initiative has been launched on three coaches of Mumbai-Jaipur Express on an experimental basis and will be extended to other trains based on the feedback.
Deputy inspector general (prison) Swathi Sathe said they are in talks with the railways to allow prisoners to make furniture and do laundry work. “This is just the beginning and we are eyeing to provide more services to the railways,” she said.
The railways has said it would display paintings in three Duranto and a Shatabdi trains departing from Mumbai. The WR officials said they have collaborated with the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists’ Association for the art work.

NR time table is always bakwaas. 12442 NDLS-BSP Rajdhani halt at Rajnandgaon is 8:40am. Next Durg schedule time is 9:25am. It invariably reaches Durg by 9:10am and the train is made to halt. Does it require 45 mins to cover 25 kms. Certainly the time table can be made more realistic and practical.

रेलवे प्रशासन की लापरवाही के चलते मंगलवार को लखनऊ दिल्ली जाने वाली शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस की 371 सीटें खाली रह गई। ट्रेन में टिकट पाने के लिए यात्री करंट काउंटर के चक्कर काटते रहे लेकिन टिकट नहीं मिले। असल में मंगलवार को शताब्दी करीब 5 घंटे देरी से गई थी। इसके जाने का समय सिस्टम पर फीड नहीं किया गया था। इसकी वजह से सीटें खाली होने पर भी करंट काउंटर से टिकट नहीं बन पाए। मामले को गंभीरता से लेते हुए सीपीआरओ ने इसकी जांच कराने को कहा है। रेलवे की एक चूक रेल यात्रियों और खुद रेलवे प्रशासन के लिए नुकसानदायक साबित हुई। यात्रियों को टिकट नहीं मिल पाया और रेलवे को सीटें खाली रहने से लाखों रुपये का नुकसान हो गया। असल में मंगलवार को आगरा में मालगाड़ी के पटरी से उतरने के बाद रेलवे ने शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस का रूट बदल दिया था। इसकी वजह से शताब्दी करीब 6...
घंटे देरी से लखनऊ पहुंची। वहीं, लखनऊ से जाने वाली शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस भी पांच घंटे विलम्ब से रवाना हुई। शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस का टिकट लेने आए सुधीर कुमार ने बताया कि ट्रेन में तीन सौ से अधिक सीटें खाली थी लेकिन करंट काउंटर से टिकट नहीं बन सका।रेल कर्मचारियों के अनुसार ट्रेन का चार घंटे पहले चार्ट बनने के बाद खाली बची हुई सीटों को करंट काउंटर से दिया जाता है। शताब्दी देर से जाने की वजह से रेलवे ने ट्रेन जाने का समय सिस्टम पर अपडेट नहीं किया था। जब तक सिस्टम में ट्रेन जाने का समय अपडेट नहीं किया जाता है। तब तक उसका टिकट नहीं बन सकता है। यात्री रेलवे अधिकारियों से समय अपडेट करने की मांग करते रहे लेकिन सिस्टम पर समय अपडेट नहीं किया गया। इसकी वजह से शताब्दी एक्सप्रेस 371 सीटें खाली चली गई। सीपीआरओ संजय यादव ने बताया कि मामला गंभीर है। मामले की जांच कराई जाएगी।

मुंबई. अगर कोई विरार लोकल में चढ़कर किसी बीच के स्टेशन पर सही-सलामत उतर जाये तो देखने वाले को अपनी आंखों पर भरोसा नहीं होता। लेकिन चेतन चिपलकर नाम के एक युवक ने बुधवार की शाम यह कारनामा कर दिखाया, जिसकी वजह से अब उसे देश के राष्ट्रपति के हाथों सम्मानित होने का सौभाग्य मिलने जा रहा है।
Mumbai Localचेतन को देखने के लिये उमड़ी भीड़
चेतन की क़िस्मत बदलने वाली यह घटना कल उस समय घटी, जब वो विरार लोकल में दादर स्टेशन से बोरीवली के लिये सवार हुआ, हालांकि अभी तक
यह पता नहीं चल पाया है कि उसने यह आत्मघाती क़दम किस परेशानी के चलते उठाया। चढ़ने के 15 मिनट बाद वो दरवाज़े से एक फ़ुट अंदर पहुंचने में क़ामयाब हो गया और पूछ बैठा कि बोरीवली किधर आयेगा। बस, उसका यह पूछना था कि चारों तरफ़ से आवाज़ आने लगी- “चेतन भगत है क्या!”, “इसमें काये को चढ़ गया?”, “मरने का है क्या?”
इसी बीच एक भले आदमी (जिसका दायां गाल चेतन के गाल से सटा हुआ था) ने उसे सलाह दी कि “अब अंधेरी में उतर जाना”, तभी दूसरा बोला- “नहीं, अंधेरी में नहीं उतर पाओगे, बांद्रा में ही उतर जाना!” लेकिन जब तक वो एक फ़ुट और सरका, तब तक बांद्रा और अंधेरी दोनों निकल गये। घबराहट में उसकी आंखों में आंसू आ गये। यह देखकर कुछ सवारियों को उस पर तरस आ गया। उन्होंने कांदिवली आने तक उसे गेट के पास पहुंचा दिया और कहा कि “हम तुम्हें धक्का दे देंगे, बाक़ी तुम्हारी क़िस्मत!” और उनके धक्के और अपनी क़िस्मत के सहारे वो सचमुच सही-सलामत नीचे उतर गया।
विरार लोकल से किसी को बोरीवली में उतरता देख लोगों की आंखें फटी की फटी रह गयीं- ना उसकी कमीज फटी, ना किसी की कोहनी से मुंह सूजा! यह देख प्लेटफ़ॉर्म पर खड़े लोगों ने तालियां बजाना शुरु कर दिया, कुछ ने आगे बढ़कर उसे कंधों पर उठा लिया और नारेबाज़ी करते हुए स्टेशन से बाहर लेकर चले गये।
जैसे ही मुख्यमंत्री देवेंद्र फड़नवीस को इस घटना की जानकारी मिली, उन्होंने बहादुरी पुरस्कार के लिये चेतन का नाम राष्ट्रपति प्रणब मुखर्जी के पास भेज दिया। राष्ट्रपति ने भी इस आग्रह को तुरंत स्वीकार कर लिया और चेतन को राष्ट्रपति भवन आमंत्रित कर दिया, जहां वो 2 अक्टूबर को एक भव्य कार्यक्रम में उसे बहादुरी पुरस्कार से सम्मानित करेंगे। इसके अलावा, उसे 26 जनवरी को इंडिया गेट पर होने वाली परेड में बहादुर बच्चों के साथ हाथी पर बिठाकर भी घुमाया जायेगा।
इस बीच, ख़बर मिली है कि चेतन की इस बहादुरी से प्रभावित होकर अमेरिका ने अपने नेवी सील कमांडो दस्ते में शामिल होने के लिये बुलावा भेजा है। यह उपलब्धि हासिल करने वाला वो मुंबई का दूसरा शख़्स है, इससे पहले 1988 में समीर शहाणे नाम के एक युवक को भी विरार लोकल से उतरने पर नेवी सील में भर्ती किया गया था।

Is a Swatch abhiyan required for cleanliness in trains. Cannot Railways keep the rake clean throughout the year. I came by Amarkantak from Durg to Habibganj. There is the onboard housing staff on running train. The coaches are being cleaned at regular intervals. A very big thank you to SECR, Bilaspur. Cannot this model be replicated by other zones.

OBHS or On Board Housekeeping Service is also available in this train . I have travelled in this Rajdhani 4 times. At all instances , i spotted OBHS doing their duties.
Note- I have also travelled in Chattisgarh Sampark Kranti ( Believe me, its one of the best trains of SECR.) . OBHS deployed at this train were more Punctual and they would repeatedly come and clean the Coach Floor along with spraying of Air Refreshener and collecting Garbage from Passengers. (Nothing great in that !! :P )

Time table will not change as NR not interested in change. There is no Rajdhani train from Nagpur to New Delhi. So this TT will continue. NR also not interested in giving stoppage at Nizamuddin. Places such as Gwalior will continue to get experimental halts for 6 months. A bona fide halt that is required at NZM will not be given. Disgusted I have started using CG Sampark Kranti for travelling between Delhi and Durg (Bhilai). In Rajdhani, there was no tension about food although food is hopeless (my wife got a small cockroach in rice). But in sampark kranti you have to carry food from home. OK if railways is interested in surge pricing that is mischievously called flexi fare, I will not board Rajdhani even if it means more problems for me. If need be I will go by air to Raipur and take cab from Swami Vivekananda...
