VISAKHAPATNAM: Three new trains passing through Visakhapatnam are likely to be introduced in the coming Railway budget.
The report was submitted to the Railway Board and the Union railway ministry, sources added. The committee met in Allahabad for three days from January 6.
Representatives of all railway zones, including Bhubaneswar-based East Coast Railway (ECoR)
and Secunderabad-based South Central Railway (SCR) presented
their demands at the meeting.
Panigrahi, deputy chief traffic controller, and Deepak Jha, chief passenger traffic manager, represented ECoR.
City activists, who fight for introduction of trains from Visakhapatnam, alleged that ECoR officials had played foul in
proposing the Bhubaneswar-Bangalore train. In fact, officials of Visakhapatnam-based Waltair division requested ECoR
to introduce Vizag-Bangalore daily train.
Sources said ECoR had also objected to the proposal of a double-decker train between Chennai and Visakhapatnam
citing maintenance problems at the coaching yard in Visakhapatnam.
JV Satyanarayana Murthy, convener of Visakhapatnam Railway Zone Sadhana Samiti, alleged,
"Passenger services at Visakhapatnam railway station will not improve as long as it remains with the ECoR zone.
It is high time the Waltair zone is separated from ECoR," he added.

Superb article on ECoR officials spoiled the super success of vskp sbc prem in getting it regular.
Their tone was ' run it from bbs or chuck your plan. We will not allow from vskp, got it?'
Finally, times of India has come out with a bold article belling the cat directly.
Its very clear now that ecor suffers from extreme indigestion when vskp gets a new train and cannot see the dev and prosperiety of vskp.

Premium tatkal is newly introduced by IR, as it is named premium tatkal you can assume that premium trains ticketing policy is applicable to this type of ticket-means DYNAMIC pricing, seats more-price low, seats less-price high, it doesn't have a particular fixed price but the normal tatkal ticket's price is fixed by IR.....

Also, Whenever you want to book tatkal ticket @ 10 AM.. Go for premium Tatkal.. The price will be almost same as normal tatkal ticket. This will help you get confirmed ticket by paying "bit" extra for premium. This is what I do most of the time.
