Howrah may get Executive Lounge...
.
Jayanta Gupta TNN
.
Kolkata: The Eastern Railway (ER) is considering a proposal to create executive lounges at Howrah and Sealdah stations for long-distance passengers. Officials are now trying to find out whether such lounges will receive sufficient patronage. Such a lounge has already been set up at the New Delhi station by IRCTC.
“There is no paucity of space at Howrah or Sealdah. Such lounges exist at nearly all major airports. People who don’t plan to stay overnight need not book hotel rooms. They can check into the lounge for a fee and

freshen up. There can also be a tie-up with a restaurant through which passengers can order breakfast and have it in the lounge. Before leaving for work, they can deposit their luggage in lockers and collect these when catching another train out of Howrah or Sealdah,” ER general manager R K Gupta told TOI on Wednesday.

Since he took over recently, Gupta has taken several steps to improve passenger amenities at Howrah and Sealdah. He has urged senior officials of Sealdah division to improve movement of long-distance passengers and suburban commuters at the busy station.
“I have noticed that there is a lot of cross movement with people moving across the concourse area. This is a matter of inconvenience and we are trying to rationalize this, particularly during peak hours. Space is not a problem. All that needs to be done is regulate the flow of people. We will also seek professional help to redesign the parking area outside the station,” Gupta added.
During the day, the GM released a CD of rare, old photographs and video clippings on ER’s history. After his taking over, the process of digitizing old photographs, maps, time-tables, magazines and books concerning ER, one of the oldest railway zones in the country, has started. The GM also proposes to make the rail museum at Howrah more attractive to get more visitors.

Looking at the status you mentioned, I assume its 3A, the train has only one 3A, so it may be tricky even though the DOJ is far.
IMO its 50-50.

In that case you will have no difficulty finding it. It is part of the New (SE Railway) administrative complex at Howrah Stn. The SER is that part of HWH after platform 15 (i.e. away from the first howrah bridge)

I think it is a retiring room in inside side station
I think it is a retiring room inside the station. There is no online booking neither any advance bookings at HWH rail yatri niwas. They don't even call them retiring rooms. Rooms given on first come first serve basis. I think retiring rooms at HWH are in the old complex building.

In India, April is the time to celebrate. A time when people across the country celebrate Nature’s bounty with New Year celebrations — be it Baisakhi, Bihu or Nabo Barsho. Joining in with this festive spree, the Indian Railways is also celebrating the 59th Railway Week from April 10 to 16 all over its network.

celebration is in commemoration of the first train run on Indian soil from Boribander to Thane on April 16, 1853. The Railway Week, which is celebrated every year, provides the Railways an opportunity to review and analyse its performance of the previous financial year, take stock of its present situation and chart out a suitable course of action for the new fiscal year to further improve its services. Also, Railway Week Awards/ shields will be presented during this historic week to recognise and reward the exemplary services rendered by its staff at the national, state as well as divisional levels.
.
General manager, Eastern Railway, RK Gupta, says, “During this week, the history of Indian Railways, its heritage, passenger amenities and campaign on passenger safety will be on display at Howrah and Sealdah stations and through various print media. Eastern Railway has planned to run 156 summer special trains between Sealdah and Indore, Asansol and Patna, Asansol and Jaynagar, Kolkata and Haridwar, Howrah and Guwahati, Sealdah and Puri, Kolkata and Patna, Howrah and New Jalpaiguri, Kamakhya and Pune as well as Howrah and New Jalpaiguri (premium special train).”
.
South Eastern Railway (SER) finished financial year 2013-14 on a high by surpassing the revised target fixed by the Railway Board. Some of the new happenings included:
SER’s total freight loading achieved was 134.28 MT, almost 10 MT more than what was achieved last year (an improvement of about 8%). SER surpassed not only the initial target of 130 MT set by Railway Board but also the revised target of 134 million tonnes.
.
There was record growth in goods as well as passenger earnings in 2013-14 compared to previous year. For the first time, the earnings from carrying freight traffic exceeded 10,000 crore.
As part of summer specials, 21 pairs of “premium” AC superfast specials will ply to Chennai and Yesvantpur in addition to 57 pairs of specials to other
