Donakonda - Impact of Railways:--
Donakonda had a Steam Engine Loco Shed and every train that passed by had a Steam Loco change, during the Meter Gauge years. Hence there was a large presence of Railway Establishment, Employees, Quarters for Railway Employees, Railway Hospital,Railway Recreation Institute etc. The presence of Railway establishment was the prime source of economy to this Town. With the gauge conversion and migration from Steam to Diesel Locos, the Steam Loco Shed was closed and the town was deprived of the main source of economy and most Railway employees migrated to other Railway Divisions. The railway quarters has a deserted look. People of DKD, as Donakonda is popularly known, based on the Railway station code, hope that Indian
Railways will use the existing resources with new Projects to revive lost glory of Donakonda.

    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.
