Dada Paradeep cannot be compared to Digha in any way. Both r completely different.
1. Paradeep has become a hub of industrial activities. Industries like, IFFCO, PPL(a Adventz group company), CARGILL, IOCL, BPCL, HPCL, 
Carbon etc. have been established here.
2. Paradeep has a big PORT also.
from all over India comes to work in Paradeep. Any person who is linked with these industries or knows about these industries knows Paradeep very well. Huge potential for Paradeep be it in Freight traffic and Passengers traffic if ECOR utilise these both properly. ECOR uses freight traffic very well but i will expect Passengers traffic in Paradeep should be utilized more. I had earlier given the same proposal at the time of SRC-PRDP Exp, i had then told ECOR to convert SRC-PRDP EXP to INTERCITY type train as several labors, office goers travel to Paradeep for work and for them a train with SL, 2A,3A is not required. Convert it to ICE train and if ECOR cannot SER can give rake. But Khurda Road officials did some survey don't know what and no reply they further result they gave.
Whereas, Digha is completely a tourists spot. Only tourists travel there. Digha i don't think any bengali is there who doesn't know be itSouth or North Bengal people or outside WB bengali everybody knows. I think you know in bengali there is a word called " DIPUDA" famous among all bengalis tourists spots. Here,
3 famous tourist spot where every bengali goes whenever they get a chance.

Dada DHN-DIGHA overnight train not at all required. Will get less than 10% occupancy. Instead DHN-PRDP exp via Tatanagar will get good patronage. See Dhanbad, Bokaro, Tatanagar, Hijli/ Kharagpur, Bhadrak all big stations and Dhanbad, Bokaro, Tatanagar r Industrial cities. Many officers, workers, labors travel between these cities. Also Paradeep has many industries. A Weekly special train with suitable TT can be tried and if gets patronage can be thought i think. What is you thought Sir?

I know these two are of inverse nature. What I meant is relevance for the population you're targetting. Santragachi-Paradeep is already dump. When a metropolitan completely fails, we cannot expect tier 2 cities to perform any better. 90% of the employee base of Paradeep are from northern India like most other central industrial hubs here, which hardly have any mutual connection. In such a case connectivity to deemed destinations described by the host company(s) is of only relevance. For eg. ANVT-HLZ Exp, Haldia inspite of having ~60% local working population provides good patronage to this. Same weekly result can be expected from Paradeep as well.

Digha isn't popular outside WB, North OD and four prime cities of JH(Jamshedpur, Ranchi, Dhanbad, Bokaro). DHN-DGHA overnight via ASN-ADRA-KGP or ASN-DKAE--MCA could be tried as spl. I think it might get patronage sufficient enough to sustain. Others' opinion are welcome.
