Tmings of Maitree Express is not well updated on IR. I have traveled in it.
My journey story.
Kolkata to Dhaka. = Arrived Kolkata station at 05.45 am. After immigration & customs, boarded the 13109 Maitree Express. The Train departed at 07.15 hrs from KOAA. A Dhaka resident who was travelling with us, called his home, telling relatives the train has left at 07.45 am as per his BST clock. The train reached Gede at 09.25 IST/09.55 BST, departed at 09.30 IST/10.00 BST. I was constantly watching the Dhaka man's watch
which was showing both IST & BST timings. Around 09.45 IST/10.15 BST, the train reached DSN. After a 25 mins halt, the train left DSN at 10.10 IST/10.40 BST. It took 5 hrs 15 mins to reach Dhaka from DSN & interestingly I reached Dhaka at 15.25 IST/15.55 BST. The display board at IRT DAKA was showing that 13109 up Maitree Express arrived 15 mins BT at DAKA. DAKA arr time as per Rly TT at DAKA station is 15.40 hrs IST/16.10 hrs BST.
On My Return, I boarded 13107 Maitree Express from DAKA at 08.45 am BST/08.15 am IST, reaching DSN at 13.45 pm BST/13.15 pm IST. After a breif halt of 25 mins, the train left DSN at 14.10 pm BST/13.40 pm IST leaving behind BR territory & entered IR territory at Gede around 14.30 pm BST/14.00 pm IST. Leaving 5 mins later at 14.35 pm BST/14.05 pm IST, my Maitree Exp journey ended after arrival at 16.20 hrs IST/16.50 hrs BST at Kolkata.
So I figured out
13108/09 Maitree Express TT in IST:- KOAA 07.15; Gede 09.25/30; DSN 09.45/10.10; DAKA 15.40.
13107/10 Maitree Express TT in IST:- DAKA 08.15; DSN 13.15/40; Gede 14.00/05; KOAA 16.20.
Add +30 mins for BST Timings.

    @all: This is to formally announce the END of the RailCal app. Due to the information blockade, the app has lost its value, and has been rendered completely useless.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info. We had put in MANY, many years of PAINSTAKING effort to develop the PNR Prediction infrastructure, and our Sr. Legendary Members have helped countless people...

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
