Completely genuine demands. Points to ponder:
1. When 5 dedicated daily trains are running in MAQ TVC sector, and 4 dedicated daily trains to Chennai, SR does not run a single train in MAQ SBC sector.
2. No trains are run from MAQ to anywhere in Karnataka. SR not permitting any other zone trains via Puttur side or Konkan side to MAQ. These trains are just extended via MAJN to ERS TVC etc.
3.

Atleast allow Netravati and Mangala to MAQ and sanction some quota of seats. Remember that these were originating from MAQ pre Konkan railway era.

Few train slot realignments and new connection needed at MAQ, upon completion of new PF.
1. Adjust arrival of SMVB MAQ to 0700, so that Mysore passengers can catch Ernad to travel to KGQ CAN etc.
2. Take Gomateshwara express to MAQ. There is no point in idling the rake for more than 17 hours. Why can't it be made to have RSA with SMVT MYS MAQ express? Something like YPR 0730 MAQ 1630; Return MAQ 1900 MYS 0400 SMVT 0800. SMVT 1900 MYS 2300 MAQ 0630. Return MAQ 0900 YPR 1730.

3. One of MAQ MAS train should run in shortest route i.e via HAS BAND KJM.
4. Extend one of the two NCJ MAQ trains--Parashuram or Ernad -- to Bangalore. Can have RSA with KCVL MYS express.
5. SCR to run Bidar Mangalore Central express via KLBG RC GTL BAY CTA HAS. Can have RSA with MAQ KCG express.
6. There is no train from west/ north TN to canara coast (Konkan railway). Why can't one of the 4 MAS MAQ go to Karwar, thereby linking pilgrimage towns of Udupi Kundapura (Kollur) Murudeshwara Gokarna?

SR PGT should give in writing that these new platforms are not going to be used for Kerala bound trains.

Extension of existing trains/Utilization of lie-over rakes beyond MAQ will help in decongesting the terminal to allow more services.

1. 16585/86 SMVB MAQ train can be made to run upto Karwar like its predecessor. Will help a lot of pilgrims as the MAQ MAO intercity has also been discontinued and the erstwhile Verna passenger now officially departs prior to West Coast's arrival.

2. 16159/60 MS MAQ Exp instead of being stabled at MAQ, could be assigned a 4th rake and its rake can be used for a new overnight service to Interior Karnataka (UBL or BAY) or as a Superfast upto Mumbai/Pune reducing the load on Netravati.

3. 16575/76 Gomteshwara Exp could be extended up to Karwar (effectively making it a daily along with 16515) or into Kerala with Loco reversal at MAQ.

4. 12685/86 can be assigned 2 additional rakes and facilitate through RSA another overnight service between MAQ and MAS/TBM via HAS and SMVT.

Above are trains which don't have PM @ MAQ/MAJN, and could easily generate additional patronage in their respective routes and also decongest both stations.
