A Small Example how E.Co.Rly is loosing its revenue with negligence.
Now this is time for Sankranti in AP and the BIGGEST Festival than any other festival for AP People as it is First Big Festival in New year.
Lets have a look:
Bus charges for VSKP after price hike online booking which show you before payment "Sorry seats are Full"
click here Prices are aftr 50% increase in Fare and while booking it may also increase if operator wish.
APSRTC & TSRTC Running 1500 Regular Buses + 2500 Special Buses @50% Extra charge in AP to all destinations
Travellers who book tickets have been paying about Rs 2,000 to Rs 2,800 for a semi-sleeper buses (Non-A/c) from Hyderabad to Visakhapatnam, while the charge for Hyderabad to Nellore route is between Rs 1,900 and Rs 2,500, and Rs 1,000 to Rs 2,500 for Hyderabad-Vijaywada, which is astronomical for such short distances. (All are Non-A/c)
Travel Agents openly said “We begin advance booking a month ahead of Sankranti and bookings are open till the last day as many people whose tickets are not confirmed on trains and also want to travel by bus for its comfort. These days, sleeper buses provide all comforts that travellers are looking for. We operate at least 50 extra buses mainly on Andhra routes during the Sankranti season. Trains start advance bookings three months ahead of the festival, but those who do not get confirmed reservation travel by bus.”

Now little details how E.Co.Rly neglects its Passenger Revenue.
From Hyderabad SCR Running only very few specials this year comparing to past few years. E.Co.Rly also ran some specials previous year and in this year only one train.
Negligence King can never be changed.
