12861 Visakhapatnam Kacheguda express is extended to Mahbubnagar and 8 months have passed. Got a detailed occupancy report of the train. A total of 78 have travelled beyond Kacheguda Mahbubnagar 32, Jadcharla 17, Umdanagar 14, Shadnagar 15. If further extended to Kurnool then another 60-100 berths will get occupied.
Total capacity of train 1100. The occupancy from extended portion is now 7% which may increase to 20% of extended to Kurnool.

Re# 5969515-1              
But, won't it be kind of longer if it is extended to kurnool? Yes, if it gets speeded up with 130 TT between MLY and VSKP, then it can match the timings of APSRTC bus from kurnool to vizag or else, it is not going to make much difference. Better a train can be started from vizag via RJY EE BZA GNT NDL DHNE in the remaining 4 days of MTM MALM special slot.

Cannot rely on the timings mentioned in APSRTC as the service may get late by 2hrs even for shorter distances by an hour and biggest experienced the speed of bus for 200km late by 1.5hrs.

The route may be long but given the occupancy from Kurnool this extention may be done. Alternately the present MTM Kurnool Mantralayam express can have triweekly RSA with Vskp Kurool MLM with PM at MTM or Vja as the occupancy after Vijayawada is only 10% and people don't even travel in GS in last section.

True, agree the second statement. As far as first statement is concerned, it d be better if it gets 130 TT between MLY and VSKP.

    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...
