A quick comparison between Today Tejas, Shatabdi and double Decker.

Class__Train Number__Total Seats__Passengers boarded from NDLS+GZB___Occupancy %


So it is clearly visible that despite having more stoppages, Tejas is getting more occupancy then Shatabdi and Double Decker.

Around 50% occupancy cannot be a loss maker because fare is almost double then Shatabdi and Double Decker.

Almost new tracks are laid in every section slowly bro.
Only thing is Signaling system is not upgraded in some section upto date.
That will change is next 1 or 2 years.
Already UMB - LDH section is capable of 130+ speed.
matter of time by next ASR - NDLS or NDLS- ASR VB will be capable of 160.
With 130 - 150 MPS.
I heard on news station channel Engineers saying that
R 260 grade rails are used on Katra - Banihal section.

Re# 5452347-24              
Not 130+ sir
For signalling section and all other necessary works for upgradation needs fund and there is no mention of that kind of fund in pink books ...
However i m living in panipat, and travel in the section a lot.. i didn't see any work regarding this
Even in VBE trials for katra one CCRS said to NR to fence the sub
urb area and NR is still doing this since then and yet its not completed..
However regarding katra banihal R260 i dont have any info plus if they are using it most probably due to geographical conditions as even they used copper wires for electrification as well in some parts of the USBRL

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
