As per some newspaper, SR has asked for increase in frequency of this Rajdhani to daily.

But IMHO given this Stupid inconvenient TT, better not to increase the frequency.

The proposed Monsoon TT
esp for 02432 further nails the coffin

India is a huge country and the distance of many parts of South to North is in 1000's of kms.
North is densely populated, especially along gangetic plains, many places of which are at a distance of few hours of travel from Delhi. This means that for significant chunk of population that resides in North, trip to Delhi is essentially a day trip, which means you have multiple desirable slots available to slot in the train: very early morning departure-early morning arrival, early morning departure-early afternoon arrival, late afternoon departure-twilight arrival and evening departure-night arrival
trains coming in from west or east, the distance is no longer that of a day trip, but it can still be scheduled in such a way that majority travel happens at night. All the premium trains that run in from Mumbai and Kolkata, for instance, follow this schedule.
Unfortunately once you go below MH/WB this becomes difficult to achieve and you have to spend an entire day or a major part if it in travel. In such a Case the only option left to give the trains a desirable schedule is to arrange for late night departure and try for early morning arrival or at best early afternoon arrival in Delhi, with an entire day spend traversing central India. The 24-30 hours of travel makes any other slot undesirable and often times uneconomical.
Early afternoon is generally difficult to achieve as it is desirable for ICE travel, which kind of seals the deal for them.

Yes I agree with your point that Raj cannot be introduced from every State but it can be and shall be definitely introduced by connecting two or more states so that all state gets atleast one premium service train to national capital for its
Upper and elite class passengers.
Also Raipur is not a small city now. It has been 2 decades since it was designated as capital of state and also before it was among 5 RAJBHOGI (Ra-Raipur, J-Jabalpur, B-Bhopal, G- Gwalior, I-Indore) cities which MP was proud upon.

Also, When it has 8-9 fights to Delhi then how a Raj which is also not regular cannot be filled. There are certainly other factors behind this. Some of these may be lagging behind cgsk, poor timings, days of run etc.
And there is also too much fights and Politics between the R-zones for slots which they want for the trains Of their own zones which has certainly deteriorated our own beloved INDIAN RAILWAYS like Air India which is on sale right now.

AGTL is a weekly Rajdhani which originates from station which got dearth of connecting trains to other states (Just 6 Covid Reserved trains with only 3 runs past WB)!!
Except this none Raj runs weekly and none Raj originating station got so less count of trains!! You can see what neighbor State Dual & Daily Originating Raj doing at same date!!

DBRG Rajdhani is a curious case. You can see good occupancy throughout the year, but you cant be sure whether all of those are a result of stations before KOJ! Stations between KIR-DNR get good bookings in these trains & reservations are made starting MXN or NTSK with boarding at these stations.
This is just like the erstwhile BP Mail which on peak seasons used to run full till DGU, but only on paper, while in reality the train used to shed a lot of passengers by Malda. This happens probably because the 3AC & even 2AC tickets are quite comparable with flights from Bagdogra & sometimes even Patna.
however does not mean that NFR does not fill this train. DBRG Raj not only serves Assam but also Nagaland, & Sikkim & other adjoining regions.
The old arrangement of slip coaches between GHY-DBRT was probably useful with these facts and also that GHY to NJP also gave good amount of passengers. Post LHBfication & in recent years stations, stations beyond KIR have been occupying a good share in bookings.
Speeding up of these trains will make them more competitive. However, the very fact that the National Rail Plan has set up a target of 2051 for HSR at Guwahati shows Railway's interest to upgrade speeds in these regions.

Kindly check reference of incomplete info which prompted earlier reply!!
DBRG Dual Raj are daily & still in WL (With Avadh Assam as third daily option) against Weekly AGTL Raj (and the single one) which was posted as the one to get filled against other Raj in AVL!!
Neither AGTL (GHY/NJP/BJU/PPTA) nor DBRG Raj (GHY/MXN/NJP/PPTA/BJU/SPJ) can run without intermediate refill just like long distance SBC (SC/NGP/BPL) & TVC Raj (MAJN/MAO/BSR) which is quite a known fact!!
