22706 Jammu Tawi - Tirupati Humsafar Express should be diverted Via Katni, R, VSKP & BZA instead of the circuitous route from WL i.e, Via SC, RC, AD & GTL

This train/rake belongs to GTL div..so it was given that route and stops are also given like that.. if it runs Via VSKP.. it cannot cover GTL div and more over it will be more circuitous....so no way possible..

What is the use of connecting cities when already AP AC connects Vskp BZA sections. Just think who I'll be interested to travel from tirupati NLR via vskp raipur whichbus circuitous route when you they are trains running in lesser routes.

I had travelled by the 22847 LTT Express from Visakhapatnam to Mumbai. The train was filled to capacity and wait listed passengers had also boarded this train in the down stations at Bobbili, Rayagada, Titlagarh, Kantabanji… as this is the only train to India's commercial capital from this region, says Karunakar, who travelled by this train recently.
Many people with general tickets boarded the train till Raipur and Durg as it is serving as a daytime Intercity Express. Many pilgrims from Vizianagaram, Rayagada and other places, find this train convenient to visit Sri Shirdi Sai Baba temple. They alight at Manmad and go by road.
this train has such high patronage, we request the East Coast Railway to initiate the following: Increase the number of coaches from the present 19 to 24 by adding a few AC coaches as there is huge demand, convert the train into a daily (as it caters to the needs of people going to both Mumbai and Shirdi) by slightly changing its timings as this slot is filled and run as a daily two-pair Inter-city (like 12805/6 Janmabhoomi Express) from Visakhapatnam to Raipur/Bilaspur/Korba and vice-versa as it reduces the load on this train.

Agree with Karunakar ..
This train should be made daily as it caters to the needs of People of North Coastal AP & South Western Odisha .. going to Shirdi & Mumbai ..
A day time ICE from VSKP to R/BSP/KRBA reduces the load on 12807 Samata SF Exp
If made daily then in a way it reduces the load on 18519/20 and 18503/4
So ya these r good sugg to be implemented ..

Lot of people from Odisha Visit Mahalakshmi Temple (Vaishnodevi Mata) in Katra, J&K.
But we do not have trains from this state.
Similarly many people visit Amritsar as it is home to the Harmandir Sahib (Golden Temple) and Jallianwala Bagh (one tri weekly train)..
Similarly many people visit Chandigarh/Kalka as it is closer to Shimla ..
if there is one train to SVDK Via UHP, JAT, PTKC, JRC (with slip coaches to ASR & JUC) .. LDH, CDG, UMB, SRE, MTC, NDLS, CNB, MGS/ALD/BSB, ADRA, KGP, BBS from BAM

There are two trains from GIMB to PURI.
i) 19453/Gandhidham - Puri Weekly Express
ii) 12993/Gandhidham - Puri (Weekly) SF Express
It would be beneficial to people of Western Odisha if 19453 is restricted to RGDA.
is no point in travelling in circuitous way from TIG to PURI Via RGDA, VZM, BAM & KUR;
If you have shorter route TIG to PURI Via SBP, BBS & KUR.

Many People from RGDA, TIG and KBJ daily travel to RGDA.
But we have only weekly train 18573 VSKP - BGKT Exp.
Please introduce a SF Exp from BGKT to RGDA or BGKT to PURI Via RGDA
If that is not possible please increase the frequency of 18573 from weekly to Daily.

ECoR is neglecting South-Western Odisha and Waltair Division. From LTT - PURI/BBS there are 4 Trains
i) 12879 LTT - BBS
ii) 22865 LTT - PURI
iii) 11019 DR - BBS
iv) 12145 LTT -
BBS ..
Towards RGDA/TIG/KRPU we have only ONE WEEKLY Train
22848 LTT - VSKP
I think ECoR and CR should leave the slot of 12879 and 22865 to 22848 ..
It should ask for increase in frequency of 12145 as it would be beneficial to the entire state ..

विसाखपट्नम Visakhapatnam (VSKP): Route rationalisation introduced by Railway Board through its notification on April 1, in 2011 has turned out to be a big bane for export and import cargo operators from Visakhapatnam.
Appeals by several operators to see reason in their demand to end circuitous route to reduce handling cost as well as time for dispatch of various commodities have so far not yielded any results. Incidentally, the policy might have filled the coffers of the Railways but led to growing preference to alternate ports like Krishnapatnam and Paradeep by the port users.
told The Hindu that all cargo from Visakhapatnam including all marshalling yards Vadlapudi, Jagayyapalem, Visakhapatnam Steel Plant, Visakhapatnam and Gangavaram Ports are forced to transport via Duvvada-Balharshah route instead of Titlagarh-Raipur, which is closer by 300 km. It is putting an additional burden of around Rs.5 lakh per train from Viskhapatnam to Delhi and vice versa.
“Incidentally, for sending cargo to Raipur, we are forced to route it through Nagpur and Raipur, a distance of 1,200 km instead of Vizianagaram-Titlagarh section, which is just 550 km,” said Sravan Shipping Services Managing Director G. Sambasiva Rao.
The worst-hit due to the policy is Visakha Container Terminal, which is considered one of the deep-drafted all-weather container berths with a plan to expand it with an investment of Rs.633 crore.
“The Railways is forcing us to route out cargo through certain designated places putting a heavy burden on us. Increase in landing cost of coal is also pinching hard the consumers by increasing power tariff. To put a full-stop to the problem, electrification work of second track between Raipur-Titlagarh lane should be expedited,” Visakhapatnam Stevedores’ Association president Krishna Kumar said.
Following several representations from the shipping industry, the Ministry of Shipping has decided to set up a committee to monitor railway infrastructure so as to remove bottlenecks faced in ensuring faster evacuation of cargo.

The following lines should be given priority in the coming Budget by either allocating funds or through PPP
i)PAP - CCT/COA - KLPH - NS (Proivdes an alternative route to BZA to the already congested route Via SLO, RJY & EE)
ii)KVR - BDCR (By doing so RJY/KVR & BDCR will become big Junctions like SC, WL/KZJ, GTL, BZA, RU & VSKP and also it reduces the distance from RJY/COA/VSKP to SC,NDLS,LTT, SNSI etc)
- KHT (Asmentioned by Siva Rama Krishnan it is all weather route through backward areas)
v) NDL - YA
vi) GNPR - THV(RGDA) : Provides a direct link from NWP - PLH - GNPR - RGDA (Instead of circuitous Via (CHE, CPP, VZM, VBL, RGDA)
vii) Quadrupling and Electrification of BN - SC
viii) Third line from GPT - VSKP

Let a single line be laid first .. BDCR will come into mainline and Sree Seetha Ramachandra Swamy shrines which is known only to few people will become one the famous temples in India and more trains can be started from BZA, GNT & MTM. Many lines are laid even though ROI is very less the best eg was JAT - UHP - SINA - BRML Line and few lines in North East. It is only for connectivity not Revenue/Profit. That too Khammam Dist in Telangana is one of the most backward Dists.
