SC-VSKP garibrath exp shd be extended up to palasa[psa] because real garibs are in north coastal districts of andhra pradesh.it does not require any extra rake.number of coaches can be increasd to 20 from the present 15 to meet extra demand of berths. path: VZM:09.30 CHE:10.30 PALASA:11.30. RETURN : PSA :17.15 CHE:18.15 VZM:19.15 VSKP 20.30

it cant be taken away by ECOR and extended up to BBS because the extension will require another rake.the DURONTO will cater to the needs of VSKP bound passengers .GARIB RATH does need terminal facility at VSKP because its praimary maintanance is done at secunderabad, not at VSKP. The train has its own power generator cars. plz dont side track discussion.

Trains like Garib rath and Duronto need good occupancy to run otherwise they before non profitable and run like white elephants. These type of trains are for high density corridors and not for connectivity to towns. If it is extended then there will be not even 30% occupancy between VSKP and Palasa. You can see the same for Visakha Express once it leaves VSKP half of the train remains empty with only day time passengers with II nd class general ticket. The best way is to increase the coaches of visakha express to 22 as it is present running with 19 only and 2 SL and 1AC 3 Tier.
GR can handle a max of 18 passenger coaches only as it is...
