Right. Location wise it is Banasawadi. Already we have Baippanahalli as station in the main line and it will confuse the passengers. As of now it is BYPY (Yard). Can be named as Banasawadi and the existing Bansawadi can be renamed as Maruthi Seva Nagar/Jai Bharath Nagar station or so.
Baippanahalli railway and Metro station already exists side by side.

Presently Bangalore station can be renamed as Maruti Seva Nagar as it is apt or even as Banaswadi Junction and this one can be named as Banaswadi Terminal.

I like everything about this Rajdhani except the Jalgaon halt. It is pure politics. I have been opposed to it from the very beginning. Like the Durontos and other trains, it should have skipped Jalgaon and halted at Bhusaval. The latter is a divisional HQ, a big junction and has crew change facilities. Jalgaon might be a bigger town but is not big enough to warrant a Rajdhani halt.
Here is a post from Farhan Sheikh in FB:
"Farhan Shaikh: I have spent
2 years rigorously travelling between Mumbai and Jalgaon / Bhusawal....actually both the cities are well connected by road 24x7. People from JL always used to travel to BSL and take their respective trains which was not difficult at all.... But Politics have always won and will always win...."
I have personally experienced something similar having boarded trains from Mughalsarai when living in Varanasi. MGS is regarded as a satellite halt for Varanasi and people have no problem catching trains from there.
Now just to make this happen, the crew from BSL will be transported by car between Jalgaon and Bhusaval. How is it justified that the hardworking crew has to undergo this just for the JL halt? Sooner or later, BSL is going to show up as a tech halt and converted to commercial later. Also the JL halt has opened the door for others to follow - Manmad, Khandwa, Gwalior. So, how many of you would like to see this Rajdhani with 9 commercial halts? That is what I fear the most.
I have seen this happen all too often in the last 30 years. August Kranti Rajdhani started with TWO COMMERCIAL HALTS. Look where it is now. Hoping against hope my fear doesn't come true.

So, how are these places less connected to Bhusaval? Are you ok with the crew getting down at JL and getting transported by car to BSL crew quarters just because JL people want to board the Rajdhani at their doorstep? And are you ok if MMR, KNW, GWL, TNA, .... now have a strong reason to claim a Raj halt so that, in future, this train ends up with 9-10 halts with 30-45 mts slowdown?

Mani sir ek aur example IGP pe durontos ko halt hai waha proper IGP ka ek bhi yatri yatra nahi karta hai, Nasik ke yatri IGP ya BSl ko jake train Board ya Deboard karte hai, ye mujhe mujhe malum hai ke Duronto ka rule kya hai par aisa halt kis kaam ka jahan passengers hi na ho..

Haan. I also saw in my ALD Duronto trip that not a single person boarded at IGP but few boarded at BSL. I was suprised since I thought some people from NK will use this Duronto from IGP. So, looks like IGP halt for all three Durontos is a waste.
