Electrification between Chicksugar and Guntakel Chord Cabin. Doubling between GTL and Yelahanka.
I think Bangalore Rajdhani is least congestion or lowest occupancy among all Rajdhani. Getting a seat confirmed is easy as it has AVL except peak season diwali.
Thank you, also do you think by June Guntakal to Wadi would be opened?
Now remaining areas for electrification is between AD and YS (I think). But it will have to be a rapid completion feat, like PNVL-ROHA electrification. I think it will complete judging on the speed IR is electrifying rail lines.
