The above pic was actually taken just after the train was shunted on the platform and we boarded the train.
Patronage was decent but was not overcrowded though from Asn. From Raniganj, Andal and Durgapur, significant no of people boarded the train. After Durgapur, train was completely full. I am giving one more pic which was taken just after the train departed from Asn. This is the 12th coach. 2 more coaches were present behind this - one ladies and one Slr

Extend to Purulia/Tata is far better than parasnath/gomo because no service between PRR/Tata to Kolkata/Sealdah .

From my numerous experiences I can say that this train gets a good patronage from ASN , especially the solitary reserved coach that is usually packed from ASN itself....
Train gets decent patronage because it is the only regular intercity to Sealdah via the main line, Coalfield & Bidhan go via Chord, but anybody believing that this train rivals the patronage of the above mentioned are certainly being delusional....
Most passengers will deboard at Bandel Jn or Naihati Jn, train runs mostly empty post Barrackpore....
an extension would be fetching more passengers certainly, but I wish these train be actually be short terminated at DGR instead of going to ASN....
DGR is dependent on ASN, DHN & JSME originating trains
The lack of pitlines actually hurts DGR seriously, as it can't have any originating trains for Kolkata that it so deservedly is denied...
I would love to see this train actually short terminated at DGR...and start from DGR at the time it starts from ASN....
That way this train would be hopefully less trolled by the HWH and SDAH Divisions respectively....

I think these we need a closer introspection of IR's ticketing logic here...
Have a look at these attached screenshots. One shows the fare chart of the Maitreyi express from Kolkata to Dhaka and the another shows the fare chart of the Sealdah New Duronto Express. I leave the Rajdhanis out of the question since they are considered as the most premier trains in India. Due the lack of an actual ACSF express between Kolkata and Delhi, I had to take the available premier SFs and the Duronto for consideration!
I am all for affordable train connectivity between our neighbouring countries , but a line should be drawn distinguishing between domestic international travel. I understand that Delhi is almost four times the distance than Dhaka is from Kolkata but why is the Maitreyi express exempted from Dynamic fares? Why should international people be exempted from paying more for coming to a foreign country while we have to cough up high dynamically varying prices just to reach our national capital .
Just have a look at the SL fare in the HWH-NDLS Duronto and the 1A fare in the Maitreyi for reference!
Granted the overall condition people of Bangladesh is not that well off, but the ones that undertake the trip to KOAA are usually the richer ones, and they are snobbish and arrogant, they brag about Bangladesh's healthcare systems and praise other such devlopment, which degrading Kolkata and India as a whole...
Like seriously if your Bangladesh is such a 'Sone ki chiriya' why come to us? We have problems of our own.... many of our own die of lack of healthcare facilities due to poverty and other such issues.
And all this would have been excusable if the railway connectivity were up to Nepal or Bhutan, the countries that are truly our friends, they are neither as overpopulated as Bangladesh nor harbour ill intentions towards us...
Trust me most of the Indians are blissfully aware of the true feelings of the Bangladeshis because of the lack of the knowledge of the Bengali language...
For the few of us that have Bengali as our mother tongues, we are well aware of their intentions towards us... Just google translate the wordings from their facebook pages if you don't believe me... The only reason Bangladesh isn't openly hostile to us is because of our sheer size and might....
Look it's good thing to be charitable but in our case, it's better to remain charitable within the boundaries of India itself....
We have huge problems of our own....
Let's resolve that first... let's set our house in order first.....
Charity can be done afterwards....
Waiting for your views on the same.......

This isn't a uncommon topic. DRM SDAH have always been in move to increase fare on international travels cause you know how it's freight condition is. RB made an agreement too which Bangladeshi counterpart did not wish to sign. Because they have to spend two times more on paying donations to the corrupted clearances of theirs. Everyone had only one question,"What India or WB has to do in there?😑" No one even knows whether that's true or not. Ultimately, we are left compromising for them.
