This train needs an extension till Raipur/Bilaspur and also increase in its frequency. Raipur is not directly connected to Indore and many people of Indore travel by Amarkantak, Samata and Chattisgarh Exp. from Bhopal. Narmada Exp. runs between Indore and Bilaspur which is just a Fast Passenger in the name of an Express. 12913/14 and 12923/24 shall be merged together and should run as a single train via Ujjain in order to cater the people of the overall region

People do not want to travel on a passenger train for more than 24 hours and that too by a long route. Plus BSP div. is a mean div. and it will not allow its train to extended to another division.
Raipur is max. 5 hrs by train from Nagpur. Railways should increase its frequency to at least 4 days a week

If it's so popular then why is it still running as bi-weekly? It should run on daily basis.
The extension will only help in earning more revenue from the extended region.

Can be easily extended and extension is feasible, up to Durg it's good though.

Many trains that are popular do not run daily... Please use logic sometimes...
If extending the trains is the only solution, how about extending Durg- Bhopal Amarkantak Express... It's daily service!!!

This train should be extended to Indore as there is no direct connectivity from Indore to Hyderabad by train. Railways should increase its composition to accommodate more passengers for the extended part. Many people of Indore travel to Bhopal by train and then take buses/taxi from Bhopal.

Then it will require one more rake...
Best idea is to extend it to HBJ, as this can be done with single rake only

yes extra rake would be needed if its get extended to INDB. HBJ extension is also a good option for the train to serve as ICE.

20.20hrs departure @ SC is not possible with the current traffic at the said time.
Also, 22.00hrs departure ex.SC would be taking off the load on 12721 till NGP.

19301/19302 Yesvantpur-Indore-Yesvantpur express goes via Kacheguda(KCG), a suburban station of Hyderabad. But yeah, a daily connectivity from Indore to Hyderabad is necessary, agree with you...

Ratlam and Nagpur should remain in their respective zones with Division Status. Instead, a New Ujjain Division shall be constituted under WCR covering Nagda-Kota route, Nagda-Bhopal route, Indore, Mhow, Bairagarh, Ambedkar Nagar-Khandwa route, etc. In this way, it would get much more attention and facilities compared to its previous zone.
Nagpur under SECR will play a significant role after gauge conversion between NGP-CWA and JBP-G.

But both the zones don't coordinate well, resulting in many long pending demands like running EMU trains around Nagpur mainline for up down passengers, many others as well.
Ratlam as a whole will function relatively better if under WCR, if talking about the route RTM division wouldn't be left with much and the remaining area will be ignored even more.

Aug 16 2017 (23:21)   19306/Guwahati - Indore Express (PT) | BPL/Bhopal Junction (6 PFs)

This train should be given permanent halt at BPL instead of bypassing BPL. There is no direct connectivity to NorthEast from Bhopal. This train would be very helpful for many who want to travel to NE as there are very few trains connecting MP to NE. Bairagarh halt is given but it is at one end of the city and also the station is not accessible properly from the main road. PLus the Bairagarh station has less amenities due to the negligence of Western Railways.
Giving halt at BPL would not be a major issue as there is a lot of slack time b/w Bina and Bairagarh in both the directions.
is to be done with 22830/29 SHM-BHUJ Exp. It will give direct connectivity to ROU, TATA and KGP from BPL.

Railways should extend 11447/48 JBP-HWH Shaktipunj Express to Bhopal/Indore. A majority of the passengers in Shaktipunj Express travel to Singrauli and they have to travel to Jabalpur from Bhopal/Indore by connecting trains such as Amarkantak or Janshatabdi Exp. just to catch their onward train and waste most of the time in the waiting room. Like 11472/71 JBP-BPL was extended to Indore, 11447/48 should also be extended for the benefit of the passengers. From Bhopal, there are only two trains which connect Bhopal to Singrauli that too only twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday). Singrauli is a town with many industries and many people from there come to Bhopal/Indore for higher education and coaching institutes. A daily direct connectivity would definitely benefit the people from both the cities.
and Kota division of WCR is not treated well compared to JBP division which is the also the HQ of WCR. JBP division always gets priority over other divisions of WCR.
02191/92 JBP-SRC should also be extended to Bhopal. There are only two direct trains from Bhopal to Kolkata that too weekly. 02191/92 should start from Bhopal/Habibganj along with stoppage of 22829/30 BHUJ-SHM Exp. at Bhopal to benefit the people travelling to ROU/HTE/TATA/KGP/RIG/KRBA. There is also no option of flights to travel to Ranchi/Kolkata.
Connectivity to the eastern part of India is very poor from Bhopal. WCR/Railways should look into the matter.

Absurd and useless demand. Extension of Kolkata trains from JBP because SGRL needs a train to BPL is the most baseless justification that one can come up with.
JBP SRC Special was JBP's demand entirely. The train is going no where from here.
Demand for your own train than snatching them from other places.

Half of the occupancy in Shaktipunj is from Bhopal and Indore-based people who travel to Singrauli as they don't have a direct connectivity (not many people come to Jabalpur to study or to find job). And btw no one is snatching anyone's train if the train gets extended they should increase its composition as well to accommodate more passengers. It's all about benefitting the people not signifying any division or station's importance.
When they extended Rajkot-Bhopal to JBP, where were you then. Should've told them not to snatch other division's train just because you are HQ of WCR.
