For the first time, had a railfanning session in my hometown.
Once a completely diesel track and a heaven for diesel lovers, Siuri now has been invaded by electric locos although now also diesel locos are quite often in this route. It is a lifeline for many adjoining cities, villages and
districts (including dumka distraict of jharkhand) and is the highest revenue generator of UDL - SNT route, also its the district capital and the largest city of Birbhum. It was supposed to be a junction and a new BG line was supposed to be laid between siuri and prantik (bolpur) but due to land acquisition issues, the project has been shelved as of now.

Recently I have Lodged an RTI application appealing to tell the station revenue of some specific stations of ASANSOL div of ER.
Station Revenue = Revenue from reserved tickets + Revenue from unreserved ticket + Parcel revenue

Although I have been provided with the revenue from unreserved ticket, but unfortunately Railway didn't provided me the main source of the station revenue, ie, stationwise income list from reserved tickets.
(Usually the income from the reserved tickets exceeds the revenue from unreserved tickets, so for the time being the actual revenue of the stations can be considered as twice the revenue from unreserved tickets.)

Some inferences -

• The top five stations with highest revenue from UNRESERVED TICKETS ONLY in this list are -
1. Jasidih (~36.5 crore)
2. Asansol (~32 crore)
3. Durgapur (~18 crore)
4. Madhupur (~9.6 crore)
5. Raniganj (~6.7crore)

• The highest number of passengers served in the whole Asansol Division are -
1. Asansol (~80 lakh)
2. Durgapur (~70 lakh)
3. Jasidih (~46 lakh)
4. Raniganj (~30 lakh)
5. Madhupur (~25 lakh)

• If we go by the general trend where revenue from reserved ticket usually exceeds the revenue of unreserved ticket, then both ASANSOL and JASIDIH have crossed 60crore landmark which is the benchmark of being a A1 class station

• Also RANIGANJ has registered a revenue of 6.7 crore from unreserved tickets, so its quite clear that RNG has crossed the 9 crore landmark which is the benchmark of being a A class station.

• The overall revenue of JASIDIH in 2014 was around 36 crore and now it has a revenue of 36.5 from unreserved tickets only in 2016-17. So Jasidih has registered the highest growth rate in station revenue in ASN division
