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.

58015/16 is soon going to start from Purulia after yard line completes. The much highly anticipated passenger from Purulia side people is finally going to take them to Howrah. As per a recent amenities demand, commuters wanted 58015/6 to start from Purulia station. DRM KGP said that the train was numbered to run from Purulia but due to unavoidable conditions it couldn't be done. After the track base completes, the train will serve as Purulia-Howrah-Purulia Shiromoni Fast Passenger. Rake will be reallocated to PRR SM after addition of extra coaches and few improvements.

Policy ye hoti hai(Koi confirmed source nahi hai, suni sunai bate hai) ki Division k not so important Station ko HQ banaya jaye taaki sabhi stations pe proper focus rahe, agar top revenue generating station ko HQ bana denge to wo apne aabha mandal me hi wayast rahega or dusre stations pe focus nahi ker payega.
Yr theory works why PNBE is not division but falls in Danapur div but does not work for rest like HWH (Div HQ for ER,SER) DLI (NR). But Division mostly are very imp stations MB,LKO,BSB,DHN,MGS,ASN etc are very imp stations and Divisions at same time.
There is a need of temporary solution as of now and at the same time maintain a train's intermediate stations. After, a permanent solution is available, everything will be restored back to normal. The bypass has to be constructed to avoid GMO LR. But, I do not see returning of trains on ADRA-GMO section because there is no solution proposed and all trains will be diverted via BKSC or ASN which will be better.
