Great:🤔🤔 Useful Useful Agree:Very logical suggestion
To provide for State wise development pattern following transfers (divisional boundary re-markings) are recommended. Vote for/ give opinion which of them to carry forward or to drop
1. RTM division to WCR.
2. Kota division to NWR.
3. Nanded division to CR.
Ratnagiri-KR to CR.
5. Karwar-KR to SWR.
6. Thokur-Mangaluru Jn/Central- Bantawala to SWR.
7. Lucknow NR division to NER.
8. Manjhi-Chhapra/Thawe-Siwan-Chhapra to ECR.
9. Kharagpur division to ER.
10. Singrauli- Chopan - nagar Untari to WCR.
11. Katihar div to ER.
12. Hotgi-Wadi to SWR.
Creation of new zone seems a difficult task to achieve given the cost cutting measures adopted by IR. Am personally in favour of 9 zone format but its the IR administration who has submitted to pressure to politicians working for their vote bank; which is forcing the public to think otherwise.

Kerala having 2 divisions was never the original problem but became one soon for 2 reasons:

1. The neighboring state towns (historically NCJ, later MAQ and POY after gauge conversion) were not getting the services they wanted.

They wanted to create a separate zone and were opposed to the formation of the SA division and what could still become the TEN division.

Being part of SR, Kerala got a headstart in rail development compared to Tamil Nadu and enjoyed higher priority all the way upto 2000 (All new lines in Kerala were laid in BG & Gauge conversion happened much early on plus got a doubled line across the state first while most of interior TN subsisted on what was British-laid infrastructure).

Kerala did not generate much freight traffic, but passenger traffic has been quite high due to the population density and geography factors (both ends of the state connected by one line).

The doubling of the ERS-KTYM-KYJ route was perhaps the only section inside Kerala that dragged on until the current regime. This section would have also been doubled sooner if not for the alternate path available through ALLP.

    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...
