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.

JS charges much higher fare in comparison to ICE. Atleast in Kerala, JS doesn't make much of difference as the train stops at stations like SRTL, AWY, MVLK etc. So it is always better to have Inter City Express trains without specialised coaches. Atleast Railways can augment them much easliy.
