Flawed comparison.

Very few are are preferring 12134 now due to the regular 4-5 hours delay at Mumbai. And cherry picking data from a Wednesday departure when it's the board exam season in Karnataka doesn't make much sense. Top stations as per passenger boarding data for 12134 are Mangaluru-Madgaon-Udupi-Karwar in that order. For Matsyagandha, it is Mangaluru-Udupi-Madgaon-Mulki. Have shared the official figures here as images.

No intercity has been downgraded to a passenger on this sector. The passenger has been running since 1993(then as Udupi passenger, later as Madgaon/Verna passenger). Intercity was cancelled after COVID along with Navyug Express.

You say 8 coaches will run empty from Madgaon if it's upgraded to a 16-car rake. Had that been the criteria to judge demand, almost all trains from MAQ to TVC would have been short terminated at Kozhikode/Kannur since they run 80% empty after those stations towards MAQ(reserved classes only).

VB is targeting a different audience. If I prefer overnight sleeper trains, I won't travel in a VB. As simple as that.

Any idea why the intercity express was cancelled. I feel that would have been a successful train in this section with more stoppages. I have heard that LTT station is going through a upgrade. Additional two platforms and stabling lined. Hopefully more trains expected there. For now either Mumbai or UBL would probably ensure some occupancy for the VB. Lets hope a good call is taken

Might be a good Idea to check yours.
At least a search on RedBus might've been helpful.
12 Buses aren't exactly a small number to question the existence of existence 😂
Now you're scared
about losing a Dedicated Vande Bharat service to Mumbai then that's a separate thing that you'd have to work out.
But as you so eloquently put "Please know the facts before trying to befool the members of this forum"

Why is IR giving away all new trains to NCR division??? Why so much of ignorance and hatred towards NR? I want to ask, why don't they think of introducing this via CNB, LKO, BSB or MB, BE, LKO, BSB instead?? There is a complete dearth of trains from Lucknow towards ECoR but still these fools don't care about it. Alone Neelanchal can't handle such voluminous load of passengers, I have seen it myself, and, only one dedicated train is just not enough.

That’s being greedy 😁 . It’s gonna increase the travel time and add technical hassle for LR . TATA needs a dedicated train for Delhi , not sure why this has not been done. Most of the major cities of BR/JH have a dedicated Delhi connection except DHN and TATA which are million plus cities.
