Time has come for VSKP to say Good bye to ECoR ..
Announcement on Vizag zone after Union Budget, says Sujana
: Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has requested the Railway Ministry to take an expeditious decision on the creation of Visakhapatnam railway zone.
The Chief Minister, accompanied by Union Minister Y.S. Chowdary and P. Ashok Gajapati Raju, called on Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu
in New Delhi on Tuesday. Mr. Naidu submitted representation seeking speedy completion of pending works in the State, including connectivity between Amaravati and major cities in the south through high-speed trains.
He wanted the Railway Ministry to make sufficient budgetary allocations for the completion of the Kakinada-Pithapuram, Nadikudi-Srikalahasti and Guntukal-Srikalahasti lines besides requesting the Centre to hand over maintenance of the old bridge at Rajahmundry to the State Government. The State emphasised the need for ensuring that the allocations were made in the upcoming railway budget.
Mr. Chowdary said the Centre had given in-principle clearance for the railway zone in Visakhapatnam and the zone would be announced after the Union Cabinet formally gives its nod.
Development package
Creation of the special railway zone was part of the special development package assured to the State post bifurcation.
The State had also sought the Ministry to take up works on feeder line connecting the new capital Amaravati with Guntur and Vijayawada. The Ministry was requested to consider the proposal for laying third line between Visakhapatnam and Chennai besides examining the proposals for development of infrastructure at important railway stations through joint ventures.
The Railway Minister, he said, positively responded to the representation and promised that surveys would be undertaken on the proposals submitted by the State Government as well as the MPs from the State.
Thrust areas
Sufficient budgetary allocations for completion of Kakinada-Pithapuram, Nadikudi-Srikalahasti, Guntukal-Srikalahasti lines

how come it is catering both the cities
quota for VSKP had been decreased by ECoR, infact BBS has more quota than VSKP, for its extended trains - isn't true?
new coaches allotted to WAT are replaced by old coaches within weeks of their inauguration - isn't true?
new trains proposed for VSKP are rejected by ECoR stating irrelevant reasons and the same
trains are lobbied to start from BBS - isn't true
trains running from BBS are given proper/effecient TT, while that of VSKP are given TT full of slacks or less TAT - isn't true?

The train connects JAGANNATH DHAM and SOMNATH JYOTHIRLING .So,it should be run as introduced.Once the train is regularized, it will have more demand for berths. The only thing is that it should run on the path of 19453/19454 PURI GANDHIDHAM PURI weekly exp between VIRAMGAM and PURI.

So , now the criteria for priority is new/old status and no. of passengers ? I always thought if I pay for a Rajdhani/Shatabdi, I would get the service as per tag of the train and fare paid. This seems to be a new zonal policy by SER.

Not a new but a old good satisfying one. PURI and BBS premiums is given the exact priority as required.
All the old trains have been given higher priority boosting their punctuality which was a major issue till 2016. They carry a huge amount of rush and railway has done what they are entitled to.

Its time to wipe the tears of VSKP people who daily cry on ECoR
Why can't SCR, which predominantly serves those 2 states of Telangana and AP,
extend its jurisdiction and subsume till Odisha border?
Just extend its jurisdiction till last stations on Koraput line, Rayagada line and Brahmapur line
loading happens still in ECoR; by pass freight to paradip.
Convert Vskp port to fishing harbour for the benifit of fishermen.

Re# 2266508-1            Tags   Past Edits
Yes the entire Vskp division can be merged with SCR instead of creating a new zone. which will cater to n Ed's of both TS and AP and this demand is also there from long ago but EOCR is not letting it go as it gets substantial income of RS 6000from Vskp division itself. The Vskp Kirandul line is laid for iron ore movement for export and facilities have been created specially in Vskp city so the question is arising on revenue and expenses front. If the line is divided Vskp to Koraput the difficult terrain maintainance will have to be borne by VskpKoraput division and also the yard operations in vskp while income goes to another division which makes an imbalance in revenue and expenses and this the reason for not going for creation of new Zone. While Orissa what's to claim the line chatisgarh also wants hold on line...
as loading is taking in it's homeland. One more thing I couldn't I understand is shifting freight loading to paradip which is not a feasible economic solution for exporter. Who will be interested to ship for more distance when port is at optimum distance who will bear the extra expenses if EOCR is kind enough to bear the freight cost of running freight for 450km and also the shipping costs for extra nautical miles then it's fine to shift to paradip as per your wish. Please think logistically and not political.
