As per the first suggestion regarding Vadodara – Valasad Intercity Super fast extension to Ahmedabad, i would like to add that there is train from Ahmedabad to Vadodara which connects the Vadodara-Valsad intercity. This train leaves Ahmedabad at 1435 hrs and reaches Vadodara at 1715 hrs while it returns at 1815hrs to reach Ahmedabad at 2030hrs.The Ahmedabad-Vadodara express uses rake of Lokshakti express which would otherwise lie idle in Ahmedabad from 5 am to 9 pm.

Demand from Passangers to provide follwoing Train Stoppge @ Maninagar station.
1.) Stanti Express (9309 & 9310)
2.) Veraval Jabalpur Express. (1463)
3.) Surat Jamnagar Intercity Express.(9060 & 9059)
Why requirments which are as follow.
Give your feed back.
1. Maninagar railway station is suburban station for Ahmedabad city and Now Ahmedabad is metro city and 50 % passengers preferable to use Maninagar station for up and down both the time.
2. Now Ahmedabad is becoming metro city and day by day traffic is increasing on way of Ahmedabad Railway station and following areas are nearest railways stations is Maninagar.
キ Isanpur / CTM Area / Amarawati / Raikhial / Maninagar Esat are like Kokara Mahemadvad / Gomtipur / Maninagar West area like Rambaugh / Krishnabaugh / Bhaiarawanath Road / Shahallam / S T stand near area / ect テΔテ「窶址ヲ
キ Paldi / Vasana / Amabawadi / Vejalpur ectテΔテ「窶址ヲ
ï½· Vatva / Odhav /Rakhial Industrial area.
ï½· Set light & Bopal area.
ï½· Industrial area like Vatva / Odhav / Raikhial and Narol.
3. We are demanded above trains because all above train are in pick hours and many daily passengers and pass holders using daily basis. Even School students, Collage students of Nadiad and Vallabh Vidyanagar, and Anand. All most 10000 passengers and pas s holders are using the same daily basis so please look in the matter and provide the same.
4. Above demanded trains are coming from near by states OR Inter sates trains so 100 % passengers for Ahmedabad and Maninagar area and so if you provided two minutes stoppages use full for all.
5. Above Trains are not super fast trains even many super fast trains are having stoppages than why Railway not providing stoppages for above pick hours trains to Maninagar station.
6. After 19 July 2008 Bomb blast we all passengers and pass holders are very risky to go to Ahmedabad station area this area are very populated so if you develop Maninagar station and provide us train stoppages than railway can reduce load of Ahmedabad station.
7. If you provided train stoppages of above train than maximum passengers come to Maninagar and pick up train this will reduced Ahmedabad station load because 50 % Ahmedabad passengers are welling to pick up trains from Maninagar station only.
8. Industrial area like Vatva / Odhav / Raikhial and Narol are near by Maninagar station and more than 10,000 to 12,000 pass holders daily up and down from Baroda, Anand, Nadiad and Mahemdabad station and due to availability two wheeler parking, AMTS lo cal buses, and also time saving of going to Ahmedabad station. Mostly major pass holders prefer to pick up and drop down to Maninagar station.
9. From Maninagar/ Ahmedabad station around 7000 to 8000 pass holders going to Mahemdabad / Nadiad / Anand and Vadodara and 50 % are using Maninagar stations so if you provide us above pick hours trains than it is good to us and so we requested you to look in to the same.

Suggestion :- Godhara-Anand MEMU to be extended for Ahemadabad.
At present there were 4 times MEMU is running in between GODHARA Jn. To ANAND Jn. In day. But not getting required Traffic to W/R. It is observed that daily more Than 50 to 60 Private Luxury buses for GODHARA TO AHMEDABAD and back. And they are taking Rs. 75/- per trip and taking time of 4 to 5 hours. So if W/R can GODHARA Jn. To ANAND Jn. MEMU service to AHEMEDABAD & DAHOD it will get very good Traffic & Revenue to W/R. Please consider following points and our following suggestions to W/R.

Average Daily Traffic for Dahod/Godhara & Dakor by Road.

1. From Ahemadabad daily 50 Luxury buses for GODHARA. (60 x 50 = 3000 Passengers)
2. From Ahemadabad daily 30 state Government bus for DAHOD/GODHARA. (60 x 30 = 1800 Passengers)
3. From Ahemadabad daily 25 State Government Bus for Yatra DHAM DAKOR. (60 x 25 = 1500 Passengers)
4. If W/R can extended Godhara- Anand MEMU for Dahod-Ahemedabad than Passages for Limkheda/Piplod/santraod/Sevalia/Dakor/Umreth passengers can travel both side and it generates Revenue for the same. Also passengers can daily up & down both directions.
5. We are calculating following additional traffic and revenue can generate if W/R railway can provide 2 timing provided for Dahod-Godahra from Ahemadabad and Back. (One Timing in Moring and one in Evening)
Sr. No.Nos of tripAverage per passenger TicketsAverage Passengers Travel by this news services in dayExpected Revenue Generated by W/R.
12 times up & 2 times down30Average 2000 passengers in one Trip.
8000 X 30 = Rs. 2.4 Lac in dayDaily 2 lac x 365 days = 7 to 8 Cr. Yearly Income.

6. We are requested to W/R to do feasibility for above and take required actions for the same.
7. Railway has having 2 MEMU racks already running in between GODHARA-ANAND. Now only do planning how to use it effectively and take more and more passengers and generate revenue for W/R.
8. For Trail basis W/R can run One Trip in day and see the Traffic and revenue for the same.

Thanking you
