wrong analysis
VISAKHA DURONTO should be closed with immediate effect. It is getting 25% occupancy in major runs on an average. Except peak seasons and festival train runs 75% vacant
it is a huge loss creator train for IR. They should increase 3A coach in garibrath SC -VSKP and should replace 2 SL coach of godavari exp with 3A coach.
which would create more revenue fo IR

That's the subject matter under the purview of railway board...There are so many trains wit low occupancy running over Indian railways....we do not have a right to comment on the closure of these trains with immediate effect....we are responsible for our comments...Let the matter be looked looked into by railway board for all such trains...Please refrain from making comments as we are not from the decision making body..Suggestions are passed to railway board from Zonal railways...Let them take a decision.....we are all considerate about revenue losses equally...that does not mean shut every train with low occupancy...if that is the case Indian railways cannot expect profits without running adequate number of trains...nd not too many trains would ply on tracks....

Sep 30 2015 (21:36)   Halt sought for Yesvantapur Duronto in Visakhapatnam

It will help a large number of people who go to Banaglore, Tirupati from city: Haribabu
The attitude of the Railways in ignoring Visakhapatnam has drawn flak from MP K. Haribabu.
The need for re-routing train No. 12245/56 Howrah-Yesvantapur Duronto was published in The Hindu on Sept 7 (‘On The Move’) and again on Sept 27. In a letter to Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on Monday, Mr. Haribabu underlined the need to re-route the 12245/46 train, which is running five days a week via Duvvada, without touching Visakhapatnam. A large number of passengers
commute between Visakhapatnam and Bengaluru and Tirupati and back. In view of the marginal occupancy of the train, a few halts are being provided as a policy matter, but Vizag, the biggest station next to Howrah in this route ‘is conveniently ignored for reasons unknown’. Mr. Haribabu appealed to the Railway Minister to issue instructions to officials to incorporate a halt for 12445/46 at Visakhapatnam immediately since a new timetable would come into force from October 1.

U made a big joke of urself by commenting sc-vskp duronto to b running with vacant seats,,,,agree to ur point tat howrah-yeswantpur may nt b running wit vacant seats which doesnt necessarily mean all through the year it should run full,,, pls understand all trains need nt run full on all days,,, wen u comment pls ensire we give a realistic picture,,,, of facts,, vskp-sc duranto has been a train which had a history of running wth a decent occupancy or else it cud hve been converted to a superfast long back,,,, so pls dont comment whatever u feel just to support ur statement for trains which start from other cities or for that matter from any city in india,,, asking for halts is the right of every region and if found to b feasible option on revenue grounds and commercial operation s is a matter to b decided by ministry...
of railways,,,,, so india is a country where population at large still depend on trains as a means of transport nd nt air travel is a preferred economic option for everyone, ,, so pls respect everyone right to express their views and demands,,,, I hope u r sensible enuf to understand we r one country nd if running end to end with full occuupancy was met for durantos railways wud nt hve been forced to give halts to these trains,,,, nd pls dont forget these r trains nd our present condition of railways with crunch of funds cant allow tem to run non stop with losses especially the durantos, ,,,Its nt to to hurt u in anyway but a country that we belong to pls lets support every city nd grow as a country but nt as individual cities,,, we want a developed country rather than few cities to count on in terms of economy, ,

Re# 1604392-7            Tags   Past Edits
I completely agree with you. But the problem is, some people want to make issue out of nothing. Nobody said anything about rerouting other trains which were diverted earlier. VSKP is a big city and needs good connection. But asking to reroute a Duronto which runs full throughout the year? Isn't it too much? They find problem with each and everything. They neglect the fact that VSKP is the most beautiful station in entire ECoR, it has both ELS and DLS (which other place in ECoR has both)? I do agree that there has been some instances of partiality but certainly there were many positives which are never talked about.

Guys don't worry much about IRTTC meeting leaks. Last year also they told nothing is cleared for VSKP. But it got 5 new trains. Just wait for June budget. All these won't help. Also interim budget trains some times never see tracks. Some time back i posted 2009-10 interim and June 2010 full budget it clearly tells many interim budget trains not started yet even though its same UPA2.

May be Tirupati train we can expect that's also may be not possible as we got last year one train to tpty. BBS-TPTY satday train given GNWL for VSKP as its given for VSKP and last minute went to BBS. Remaining all may be difficult. I feel VSKP-SBC is what all looking at..lets see what happens.
Mostly UP, Bihar, Raj, TN region gets more trains in interim budget.

hmmm..u r really correct in this regard.. on one side wen ppl of telangana asking whatever possible for hyd..shame on our leaders they are fighting among ourselves between bza and vskp for rail zones.. so naturally vskp will be a looser if tis continues..we need a very strong political local leader.. maybe someone like kishore chandra deo.. to demand airport expansion, new rail zone and film and tourism base as well as IIT and AU central univ status....let others like high court and administrative capital be at bza and rayala seema... we can have IT and industry capital in vizag...lets see if he does something...

But practically its not possible to divide the responsibilities of capital cities in our system. If that's possible already we might have seen many cities in india which are not capital eccentric. Not even a single metro which is out capital

of course...unfortunately non locals ruining city development opportunities. They are seeing VSKP as tourist spot for settlement. Same applying to trains also. Most of the proposals is just cater their needs than majority people needs.
