Since there are many train from Hwh to Ypr ..including one daily (12245+22863)
I think 12863 should restrict itself till BBS/PURI

Please do not compare Kolkata with VSKP..Kolkata serves as the hub of Indian Railways of eastern region...people from neighboring states Jharkhand, some parts of Bihar and the whole of North East depends on Kolkata...

VSKP is also not small ..
3 North Coastal Dists depend on VSKP ..
Also Southern & South West Dists of Odisha also depend on VSKP
Parts of Chattisgarh also depend on VSKP ..
I'm not comparing VSKP to HWH or any other place .. but do not demean other cities ..
People & their necessity to travel is same across anywhere

It can't be like HWH/SHM/SRC/SDAH needs many trains to SBC and others should not have one ..

u must have been surely out of your demand before making such demand....a train which runs jampacked 365 days u want it to be restricted till bbs in return for a train which runs 5 days a week and is expensive and a second weekly ac express train.....think about the normal people who don't want to spend an extra amount on duronto and who can't really afford ac tickets.....think twice before posting such kind of blogs

Naresh, a government employee living in Anakapalle, and Achari, a teacher living in Vizianagaram, who commute to the city daily for work, find the lack of local trains a curse for commuters.
“Though there are trains from Anakapalle to Visakhapatnam, they do not match the actual demand. I have to board either 57271 BZA- Rayagada Passenger or 57255 Kakinada - Vizag EMU, which are already packed to capacity with hardly any space to get in,” says Naresh.
Mr. Achari travels from Vizianagaram to Visakhapatnam every day. He boards 78531 Vizianagaram-Visakhapatnam DEMU, which is
packed to capacity with hardly any space to stand comfortably leave alone sitting in the train.
Both Naresh and Achari feel that there should be MEMU s (Mainline Electrical Multiple Unit) between Tuni/Anakapalle to Vizianagaram via Visakhapatnam after every 1 hour and a few services can be extended up to Annavaram one side (as it would meet the requirement of pilgrims travelling to Sri Satyanarayana Swamy temple) and Srikakulam on other side (as it would be useful to those going to Arasavalli and Srikurmam temples).
The introduction of the local trains would help in reducing the load on the National Highway and minimising road accidents. This is not all, the middle class and the poor will be saved the hassle of paying three or four times the fare for travel in buses.

Daily many people travel from VSKP, VZM, CPP, CHE, GNPR, PLH, NWP, PSA, SPT, IPM, BAM to BBS/KUR/PURI/CTC to catch long distance trains going towards North India though there are many trains but an ICE starting from VSKP is missing so people have to depend on the weeklies (which is very difficult) in the morning or Train # 17016 Visakha Exp (This starts late and its slow). Similarly people coming from BBS have to depend on Train # 12703 Falaknuma SF exp which is already very crowded. So it would be better if an ICE starts @ 6:00 AM in VSKP.
VSKP : 6:00 (D)
: 13:15 (A)- 13:45 (D)
VSKP : 21:00 (A)
