Got a reply to one of my grievance on pgportal.
[{Grievance Description : Sir, Through this i kindly request you add two more sleeper class coaches and a second class unreserved coach to 18047/18048 Amaravathi Express. It is very difficult to get a confirmed ticket in this train especially for intermediate halts and also the unreserved coaches are jam packed. Train has very few coches presently for Howrah so two more coaches can be easily added to the convinience of passengers. So kindly please look into this matter and act promptly by necessary coach augmentation.
Current Status : CASE CLOSED
Date of Action : 15 Jan 2014
Details : e-mail representation is acknowledged with thanks. The matter has been examined carefully and
...

remarks are appended below: Due to operational and other technical constraints between Guntakhal Madgaon extra coaches can not be attached by this train. Necessary efforts is being taken to augment the train in future. }]
I think the main constraints they mentioned here are the slip coaches. whats your view

Phailin effect!! BZA WAG-5A 18 hours late Vasco- Howrah Amaravati Express accelerates past Sankrail
.
.
Due to cyclone effect Phailin on the Eastern coast of India, and subsequent floods on Andhra Pradesh coastline, all trains running on the Bhubaneshwar- Vishakapatnam route were either cancelled, route diverted, short terminate/ originate, or rescheduled numerous times throughout the October- November 2013 period. And subsequently, seen here is 18 hours late running 18048 Vasco-da-Gama (VSG)- Howrah (HWH) AMARAVATI Express skipping Sankrail (SEL) station on SER's Kharagpur- Howrah stretch after changing tracks from down main to the reversible track. The loco in charge is an offlink 23768 WAG- 5A of Vijayawada (BZA) shed in lead. The regular link of this train is a BZA WAM- 4.
...

It was a rare capture in SER territory, considering the fact that the arrival and departure time of this train at Howrah is deep into the night.
AMARAVATI follows the Howrah- Kharagpur- Bhubaneshwar- Brahmapore- Vizinagaram- Duvvada- Vijayawada- Guntur- Nandyal- Dhone- Guntakal- Hospet- Gadag- Hubli- Londa- Castle Rock- Kulem- Madgaon- Vasco route. The slip portion from Hyderabad Kacheguda gets attached at Guntakal.

There is quota manipulation for this train. This train always have tickets in AC from BZA-DVD at current...So it will be useful for short travel. Now TDD becomes a halt so it enjoys same PQWL,GNWL. We all know railways planning for premier trains...i am sure ypr-hwh will be one...so i think its good idea to provide halts for these trains.

No seats available till 14th March in this train atleast now SER should be soft on passengers by removing those hcpvs and giving it Two more sleeper and a UR coach making it a 20 coacher excluding those 4 slip coaches.

Freqency must be increased to daily along with coach augmentations currently due to 4 slip coaches highest it can have is 20 coaches but SER give it hcpvs instead of passenger coaches. This year high chances of slip delinking too.
