Are that is LKO-PPTA VB either via GKP or BSB, my bad I wrote it in a wrong way. NDLS-GKP is already a rumored one to be introduce next thats why I have mentioned and as for BPL-LKO, it is a constant demand from so many years from JHS CNB LKO to have a Shatabdi like train between Bhopal and Lucknow. And all those routes I've mentioned are just potential routes according to my opinion, non of them are yet confirmed.

LKO PPTA has an ICE currently but due to the heavy distance, it has bad timings. A VB express might correct this, assuming it can get the passengers required. Lucknow - Patna via Varanasi will need to go via Sultanpur and it'll terminate at proper PNBE if it goes via there.

Bhopal Lucknow can be done, but I am skeptical about the distance there and how much mps the tracks will require. It's not about the mps of the trains in most cases, it's of the tracks. If the tracks are
improved[and CNB LJN is in bad condition], even normal trains can get a boost in speed.

Yes LKO-PPTA/PNBE will be very good.
BPL-LKO Distance is easily coverable in a single day for return trip, but the train has to be given the top priority, BPL-JHS section can support 130 kmph, the time taking section is JHS-CNB but if priority has been set right, then the entire BPL-LKO/LJN section is coverable in 8 hours (at current infrastructure). It can be improved after JHS-CNB doubling and CNB-LKO track upgradation completion

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
