To decongest Delhi stations and improve the timing of crossing over trains, should each crossing over train be given only single stoppage in Delhi NCR region.
Like mathura-panipat/rohtak - ndls only
gzb- rohtak ndls only
rewari - gzb dli only
rewari - panipat dee only
mathura - gzb nzm only
mathura - rohtak dsj only (kindly suggest more add-on and corrections in the list)
Like wise possible terminal For mathura bound nzm
rewari/ rohtak bound dee
gzb bound anvt
pnp bound szm/dli (prestigious trains of all routes may be allowed to originate from ndls)

Why don't IR think of extending this to COA (Kakinada) as this has almost 23Hours idle time in VSKP. So IR can use 3Hrs (VSKP->COA) + 3Hrs (COA->VSKP) total 6Hrs sothat resource can be efficiently utilized ?

But DEC has some transportation issues as well due to its location. lack of city buses by DTC and distance with metro station. May be problem some for east delhi residents.

That's why I said if improved. Upcoming Janakpuri - Botanical Garden metro line goes through Palam so if their any metro feeders aur E-rickshaw available then passengers can reach DEC.

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
Commencement of works on feeder line connecting the new capital Amaravati with Guntur and Vijayawada
Third line sought between Visakhapatnam and Chennai

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?
