This train needs an extension till Raipur/Bilaspur and also increase in its frequency. Raipur is not directly connected to Indore and many people of Indore travel by Amarkantak, Samata and Chattisgarh Exp. from Bhopal. Narmada Exp. runs between Indore and Bilaspur which is just a Fast Passenger in the name of an Express. 12913/14 and 12923/24 shall be merged together and should run as a single train via Ujjain in order to cater the people of the overall region

Amarakntak runs with full occupancy, extension wouldn't benefit anybody

I have used my logic and based on that suggested the extension. Extending the INDB-NGP won't hamper much seat availability as it passes through Bhopal in midnight. I suggested it just for the benefit of Malwa region people. Else you can railways could extend it after gauge conversion of INDB-KNW-AK.
Extending 12854/53 Amarkantak to Indore will require another rake and it will reduce the quota for JBP pax as it is the only train connecting Jabalpur to Raipur/Durg region. This train nowadays runs with full occupancy from BPL till BSP.

I wonder why a new train can't be started...
Why this extension talk... As if IR has no coaches, engines...

Starting a new train is a problem as there are very fewer ICF coaches in production. IR is fully engaged in the manufacture of LHB coaches and it has a long waiting for other zones to allot new coaches.
Even holiday specials these days are running with LHB coaches.
If we talk about engines, SECR does not have sufficient amount of locos, it usually borrows some locos from WCR and CR. Even its regular service, 18244/43 and 18246/45, does not have a regular link till date.
extension could be done on a trial basis like it has been done in the past with 12442/41.
