I am not sure if DOS was introduced later or simply from Day 1 of this train's launch. IR may have thought of giving DOS to the Ranchi Rajdhani via Gaya since people and politicians were demanding it as a stoppage for ER Rajdhanis. Dehri-On-Sone serves as the entry corridor for the Rohtas District Head Quarters near Sasaram + It has a Cement Plant. It is a booming township in the district so trains like the Poorva Exp via Gaya, Kalka Mail, Kolkata-Jammu Express, Doon Exp, Jodhpur Express, Lal Kuan Express etc are not enough to fill it's appetite... now latest demands are Durgiana Exp and many Rajdhani Trains ;-D
It's high time more and more MEMUs/DEMUs are brought into action. If all stations start demanding for a stoppage citing N number of reasons for the importance, it would lead to chaos and most importantly, reduce the scope for speeding up.
From anand vihar kathgodam shatabdi.. rampur and lalkuan should be removed there are mostly 2 or 3 booking from both of these stations in every trip up and down both ways. And what is need of halting shatabdi 4 times in 100 km run between kgm and mb. Means a halt every 20 km on an average.
