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

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.

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!!!

Amarkantak also has the Same route between Bhopal & Bilaspur as Narmada Express and is the only Dedicated service for Bhopal and Jabalpur to Raipur and Durg and always running to its capacity. Let it be as it is.
Although the TAT at Bhopal is less and To Indore a return journey would take atleast 8 hours without any rest at Indore so extension is Impossible.

Amarakntak runs with full occupancy, extension wouldn't benefit anybody

I have used my logic and based on that suggested the extension. Extending the INDB-NGP won't hamper much seat availability as it passes through Bhopal in midnight. I suggested it just for the benefit of Malwa region people. Else you can railways could extend it after gauge conversion of INDB-KNW-AK.
Extending 12854/53 Amarkantak to Indore will require another rake and it will reduce the quota for JBP pax as it is the only train connecting Jabalpur to Raipur/Durg region. This train nowadays runs with full occupancy from BPL till BSP.

Re# 2386622-6            Tags   Past Edits
May be as electrification of BPQ-G track might be over..
Loco Reversal at BPQ...
And then Loco change has to be taken at BPQ or G....
Now it is at NGP....
But it will take
approx same time to reach G by this route too...
ADB-GDCR line construction will reduce time between NED-G .... and train can directly go through BPQ.
Doubt will be clear if more info comes on this topic...

●What is IRIMEE ?
◆>The Indian Railways Institute of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering (also known as IRIMEE) at Jamalpur (Munger,Bihar) is the oldest of the Centralized Training Institutions (CTIs) of Indian Railway.IRIMEE started as a technical school attached to the Jamalpur Workshops in the 1900s, then the largest railway repair workshops in India. After the first World War, the technical school was greatly expanded for training of railway apprentices and supervisory staff involved with mechanical engineering. In the 1960s, a Diesel Traction Faculty was set up to conduct training courses and publish educational materials as IR engaged in desalinization.
1971 the school was renamed as the IRIMEE, and brought under the direct control of the Railway Board. In 1988 IRIMEE began conducting the various required courses for IRSME probationary engineers and various Mechanical Engineering staff. From 1997, IRIMEE has also been conducting various short-duration courses for other staff on various engineering topics. Topics include rolling stock and workshop technology, management science, and information technology aimed at officers and supervisory staff.

IR is much more than a transporter!!!! Once the backbone of the economy, it is now in terrible state as it fell prey to petty politics!!!
This is how politics kills great institutions!!!
