‘There is no rule that a Rajdhani express shouldstart from the State capital’
“I had travelled by the 22416 AP AC Super Fast express from New Delhi to Vizag. I don’t understand the attitude of the Northern Railway (which owns the rake) as to why this train with high quality LHB coaches, designed to run at high speed, should run so slowly,” asks Sudhakar of Vizag, who works for an IT company in Noida.
“I feel that this train should be upgraded to ‘Rajdhani’ so as to benefit people from the capital region
(Guntur/Vijayawada) apart from Rajahmundry and Vizag. Why should anyone shell out around Rs.2,100 (3{+r}{+d}AC) and Rs.2,900 (2{+n}{+d}AC) and waste two days, when flights are charging around Rs.4,000,” he says.
There is no rule that a Rajdhani express should start from the State capital. Train no. 12423 Assam Rajdhani runs from Dibrugarh and not Guwahati and 12442 Chattisgarh Rajdhani runs from Bilaspur and not Raipur. When a small state like Goa has Rajdhani, why can’t AP?
I also suggest that the 12804 Swarna Jayanthi SF express should be made daily and extended to Katra (Vaishno Devi temple), 12808 Samata SF express should be extended to Dehradun for the benefit of those going to Haridwar and Roorkee.
“I had booked six berths in II AC on August 16 for our travel from Vizag to Secunderabad by the Duronto Express on Aug 23. My family consists of my aged parents, aged 68 and 62 years respectively, myself (44), my wife (42) and two kids aged 9 and 7 years,” says BVS Neeladri Rao of Satya Sanjeevi Apts., Jagannadhapuram.
“The booking was done through the Internet and I was astonished to find that all of us were allotted upper berths in total disregard of our options. I fail to understand, how senior citizens and women can occupy the upper berths. What is the purpose of specifically asking for the choice of berths, when the option is total ignored, especially in the case of senior citizens and ladies”?
Mr. Neeladri Rao wants the option given by the passengers to be considered to the extent possible.

VSKP needs SBC and MAS connection with comfortable timings more than NDLS connection. Long distance train like this AP AC exp doesn't have much impact on occupancy even though it becomes RAJ.

If not Raj it should be like APSK or KSK exp .. but it should not run just for the sake of SF tag (55KMPH) and that even though there are other trains all those like SJ & Samata are day trains consuming two days . The present train is clone to SJ in both directions ..
It should be like two nights and day like Tamilnadu exp.

Yes AP deserves a Raj and it would be better if it starts from Vizag as it can serves 4 Cities like Kakinada, Rajahmundr, Vijayawada and Guntur.
If not Raj it would be gr8 if it starts at night on day one and reaches delhi on day3 morning.
