Good request. Does any member know as to what is the reason why IR is not merging KR with it ? Is there some contribution in KR from the states of MH, Karnataka, Goa and Kerala ?

Agree
KR Funding: 51% by central government, 22% by Maharashtra, 15% by Karnataka, 6% by Kerala, 6% by Goa.
Maharashtra and Karnataka got nothing from Konkan railways.
For MH, till today, no daily trains from Konkan Region to Pune, Nashik, Nagpur, Nanded etc.
For Karnataka, till today, no train from Canara (coastal karnataka) to Hubli,
...
more...
Ballari, Gulbarga, Bidar, Belgium etc.
For Goa, they got additional zone but no trains. No trains from Goa (Vasco/ Madgaon) to Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune, Solapur etc. SWR plays it's own games.
Maximum benefit taken away by Kerala, with 6% contribution. All trains originate/ ending Kerala.
To our bad luck, Mangalore is in SR. CR limit is only after Roha. So, both are not bothered about Konkan railways stretch.
Better to merge KR Karwar division to SWR, Ratnagiri division to CR, along with Vasco to RN division of KR.
