Superfast trains which are expected to run at an average speed of 55km/hr, are delayed 95% times, CAG's investigation.
The CAG’s investigation shows that the ‘superfast’ trains are delayed almost 95% times. Supertrains are expected to run at an average speed of 55km/hr. But most express trains don’t seem to run at that speed.
The North Central Railway(NCR) and South Central Railway(SCR) have levied ₹11.17 crore from its passengers through superfast train bookings.
to the statistics between 2013-14 to 2015-16 in NCR and SCR, these trains reach their destination late between 13.48% and 95.17% of the days on which they ran. In total, 21 superfast trains were delayed for 3,000 days out of 16,804 days because they failed to attain the ‘superfast’ speed for which they are being charged extra for long distances.
Currently, there are no as such policies by which the railways will refund money to passengers automatically for delays. They only provide the refund if a person files a ticket deposit against reservation (TDR) against a train delayed for more than three hours.
Agra divisional commercial manager Sanchit Tyagi on delay trains said, “There are scores of factors which lead to trains not achieving their superfast speed, thus causing delays. Some the prominent factors are the maintenance of tracks, signal glitches, emergency brakes and accidents which contribute in the late operations of railways.”

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries.
