Considering the passenger shift to the north side of the city, Mohd Jamshed, railway board (traffic) member, directed the Western Railway (WR), Mumbai division, to increase the suburban services where passenger footfall has gone up.
For 35 lakh WR commuters, this means more services to Vasai, Virar and Dahanu from Andheri station which sees the highest passenger footfall.
On October 26, Jamshed inspected Churchgate station and travelled from here to Andheri in the second class compartment of a Borivali-bound fast train.

Welcome step, scarce resources have to be optimally utilised to maximise the fulfilment of passenger demand. Dynamic monitoring of data online is very helpful in quickly assessing the changing needs and making suitable changes/ augmentation in services. Doe IR have any ERP system for doing the same?
For highly saturated VR-DRD section, running additional suburban trains is going to be very difficult.

This section is very much neglected section of WR suburban rly. The population in this region growing since last decade. IR babus see now!!!
There is urgent need for addln service in VR-DH section immediately. Quadriplicating work is going on very slow pace. There is no deadline, hence it goes on indefinitely!!! By the time it is completed the requirement would have gone up. Sab kuchh Ram bharose chal raha hai.
