Recently due to closure of DHN CRP route, a lot of trains has been cancelled, which train do u think would have the most adverse effect on passenger and hence should be restored as soon as possible

* It will not matter as we have Jharkhand Sampark Kranti in that slot.
* Moreover, Bokaro-Delhi is well connected with trains. So, one OSK will nor be a big deal.
* HLZ-ANVT and SRC-ANVT will be better.

Train/ Station rating feature in IRI is actually very useful IMO. It helps the passengers to be properly prepared before starting their journey.
Here I am particularly focussing in the station rating system. Though the existing parameters are good and quite satisfying, I feel adding a point 'Public Address System' would be more helpful because I have seen many cases of passenger suffering due to poor announcement. If this parameter is added then a member should consider following factors before voting in this segment:
Quality and strategically positioning of the microfone- sound should be loud enough and should reach every corner of the station.
2) Quality of the announcement- voice should be clear enough and properly repeated in multiple languages (Regional/ Hindi/ English).
3) Timeliness of the announcement- Should be made well advance so that passengers get adequate time to reach to the platform.
4) Master Display Board- Should be placed in common places like station entrance, ticket counter, waiting area etc and properly display the platforms for trains in multiple languages (Regional/ Hindi/ English).
5) Electronic Platform Display:
A) Should be available in all the platforms.
B) All the boards should be properly maintained and functional- not a single board should be off and display the train number/ name and the coach number.
C) Accuracy- Boards should be in sync with the coach composition of the trains- for example the B1 of TN Express should stand perfectly besides the board marked as B1. And if GT departs from the same platform and S1 stand where B1 of TN stops, then the same display board should show S1 for GT.
So what do you think, should this 'Public Address System' be added in station rating?
**Adding a large number if tags for better visibility. Apologies if you find it disturbing. Let me know and I will remove some tags.
Yes. it is needed93%27
No. it is not that much needed0%0
No idea. I don't follow train/ station rating7%2

That's could be true. Also I have the feeling that some cases the rating provided by the members are bit partial (no offence to the genuine voters)- mostly to promote home station/ favourite train or down vote the rival station/ zone/ train etc. However, still I feel that it could be an useful addition.

Skipping either ASN or GAYA at 60-70 kmph is not possible because of multiple cross-over and xing points just before entering the station premises!
Anyway a PSR of 20 kmph is always in effect for 12301/5 at ASN...
Ironically enough skipping DHN is possible at 40-50 kmph due to the presence of the third line between platforms 1-2 and some times good trains still skip DHN at brisk paces, which isn't possible at ASN or GAYA.....
video btw :)
