Part of the problem with SCR is that they prefer ease of operations than connectivity ( not in a discriminatory way, but it ends up having the same effect). All their choice of starting points for trains are either terminal stations like COA,MTM, NS or major cities like SC/BZA/TPTY etc. Because of this, many major places like HX/ATP/OGL/AWB/NLR end up depending on passing trains and do not have any originating traffic.
While it is definitely a good idea to start trains in this manner, in most areas this is becoming a problem because, other than the Godavari and Krishna districts, the other areas in SCR have no terminal stations and many of the important places are
just passing stations ( not even major junctions). This is leading to the idea back-firing a lot and SCR has no answer right away as it has followed the same development strategy from the time of it's formation and they are unwilling to adapt to a different style of operations.
But SCR is a decent zone. It has the usual problems at the border regions, but they are not very ugly or discriminatory and the problems are mostly due to laziness in operations and a resistance to change. A dynamic leadership and the correct political pressure can help set things on the right path for SCR.

But then, wasn't CR handling the portions I mentioned earlier? Is it that, instead of splitting the entire work into two portions, they just combined it under one project and put it under one of the two zones involved?

total project is under SCR as its decided decades back. Its SCR responsibility to complete the Doubling and electrification untill DD. SCR done its job quicker in its area.
There are many SCR project running at snail pace. Nizamabad to Karimanagar to Peddapalli project is couple of decades old not completed.
Just 50 km single line project Jagayyapeta to Vishnupuram which is pending from past 10 years in SCR.
- Yerraguntla project takes several decades
Gadwal - Raichur also many years its taken. Even after opening not used effectively.
EVery zone has positives and negatives.

zonal railways wont handle projects, they contract to some agency. Zones are responsible for review and fund generation majorly.
This total project is given to SCR at the time formation i think. As its a big project SCR funding became major problem

Nice pics. Timely gauge conversion of Mhow-Khandwa-Akola will lead to this useful Ratlam-Akola-Kacheguda route. It will be a boon for North-South trains, along with Jabalpur-Gondia conversion....

NED-BKN via AWB is long pending demand. Last time started NED-BKN via AK was meant to go via AWB but but some politics happened and AWB lost the train. When ran as a special via AWB, 80% paxs were from AWB.

SCR is misguiding us totally. Few months SCR as well as CR comes with Press Release that 17613/14 NED-PUNE Tri-Weekly Express booking disabled from 1.08.2016, since they are planning to extend upto PNVL, also revising time-table of the train and makes it daily. When Aurangabad people starts opposing this decision, then they told UNOFFICIALLY that they are planning to extend 17063/64 Ajanta Exp to PNVL since it remain idle at MMR for 15 hours. What happens further... nothing.. After few days, 17613/14 booking enabled after few days. Frequently members of this committee are misguided. Our MP's are used to silent on such kind of issue. Now, people also used to travel in overcrowded trains. AC Classes are running full. Sleeper class tickets filled very fast. Very Rarely you may get up-gradation to AC Class. Sleeper class are similar to General. God knows for how many years this situation will be.. :(
