Recently I have Lodged an RTI application appealing to tell the station revenue of some specific stations of ASANSOL div of ER.
Station Revenue = Revenue from reserved tickets + Revenue from unreserved ticket + Parcel revenue

Although I have been provided with the revenue from unreserved ticket, but unfortunately Railway didn't provided me the main source of the station revenue, ie, stationwise income list from reserved tickets.
(Usually the income from the reserved tickets exceeds the revenue from unreserved tickets, so for the time being the actual revenue of the stations can be considered as twice the revenue from unreserved tickets.)

Some inferences -

• The top five stations with highest revenue from UNRESERVED TICKETS ONLY in this list are -
1. Jasidih (~36.5 crore)
2. Asansol (~32 crore)
3. Durgapur (~18 crore)
4. Madhupur (~9.6 crore)
5. Raniganj (~6.7crore)

• The highest number of passengers served in the whole Asansol Division are -
1. Asansol (~80 lakh)
2. Durgapur (~70 lakh)
3. Jasidih (~46 lakh)
4. Raniganj (~30 lakh)
5. Madhupur (~25 lakh)

• If we go by the general trend where revenue from reserved ticket usually exceeds the revenue of unreserved ticket, then both ASANSOL and JASIDIH have crossed 60crore landmark which is the benchmark of being a A1 class station

• Also RANIGANJ has registered a revenue of 6.7 crore from unreserved tickets, so its quite clear that RNG has crossed the 9 crore landmark which is the benchmark of being a A class station.

• The overall revenue of JASIDIH in 2014 was around 36 crore and now it has a revenue of 36.5 from unreserved tickets only in 2016-17. So Jasidih has registered the highest growth rate in station revenue in ASN division

Asansol division officially does not have an A1 station, right? Eastern Railway has just 3 A1 stations - Howrah, Sealdah and Bhagalpur.

Awesome Great trip dairy Nice writeup.
Trip report for my journey done along with our IRI member & friend Mr.Amit Kumar Singh (Bhilai) on 17th December 2016 (Saturday) from Gaya.Jn to Barddhaman.Jn
Reached Gaya.Jn station at 05:40 Hrs, spotted Mumbai Mail arriving at pf#01 along with a WAP-7 HWH, while we moved along with our luggage on pf#02-03, it was 05:45 Hrs but still no announcement or name over display board then heard a shrill sound of horn along with bright headlight, yes that was our train to board -
much hyped 22324 Shabd Bhedi Express over pf#02 but along a red WAP-4 HWH. Still there was no announcement nor coach position displayed over pf, we hurried on to our coach that was S6 33LB, 34MB, 36LB. As soon as we got seated over berths finally the announcer woke up to announce this trains arrival, that too with very unpleasant hoarse sound but by that time train was already rolling! I would say I was very much disappointed by this poor behaviour at such important station! Well after departure train started gaining speed it was very cold outside & a bit foggy too! After passing Paharpur we started slowing down for upcoming Gurpa - Gujhandi Ghat section ahead, which was a new experience for me as in past journeys this section was passed during night time. I took out the cellphone & starting recording the section admist chilly cold winds, which literally froze my hand of it's warm blood, but still kept on with railfanning! At this section we crossed many trains which were re-scheduled from Kolkata side, at Gomoh.Jn we overtook a train. Arrival at Dhanbad.Jn was very early at around 30 mins from it's scheduled arrival over pf#01. We hopped outside over platform to get some tea & snacks, we over train too vendors were selling tea, but we preffered station tea & samosas (singara). We cheched the loco link again to take some front snaps but due to presence of large numbers of RPF guys & instead returned towards backside & Ranchi Shatabdi Express arrived at pf#05 with a WAP-7 HWH. While departing saw a WAM-4 MGS over pf#02 with some Passenger service awaiting to depart. Till Asansol run was good just at one place we slowed down to cross Maithoon river, thereafter straight halt at Asansol.Jn. At Asansol ELS saw couple of WAP-4's, WAG-7 & twin WAP-7 (probably new). halt at Durgapur.Jn was short & sweet over pf#04. After that we started sorting out over belonging to alight at next halt that was at Barddhaman.Jn while Amit was to alight at Kolkata Terminus (Chitpur). Prior to entry at BWN we were kept waiting at outer while a WAG-7 JHS hauled CONCOR rake was slowly in parallel direction overtooking us, but withinn some moments we were given to proceed to finally overtake that freighter & I was just waiting to board BWN CHORD EMU. Arrival at Barddhaman.Jn was over pf#05, we bid farewell to Amit & ran to buy tickets, finally when arrived saw HWH CHORD EMU had already arrived over pf#04. We boarded EMU & I finally dozzed off over window seat & proceeded to have cubersome journey till Dankuni.Jn.
Thank you for reading the trip report & positive feed backs expected!

Ok... so you got the privilege to take snaps of this newbie train at Gaya, Dhanbad, Asansol, Durgapur and Bardhamman... all biggie stations covered between Mughalsarai and Kolkata for this train. Nice snaps... did your train slow down at GMO or skipped at a decent speed since track renewal work was going on over there some months ago ? :)

Pic 23 is Barakar river bridge is sort of border that marks end of Jharkhand and beginning of West Bengal. With KMME (my home station) in Jharkhand and Barakar station in WB. Besides as this train goes to KOAA its route must separate from Dankuni JN so it would halt for signal or something. I have once seen SDAH Rajdhani halting there. So u could have debaorded there. In case it didnt halt there was no way but to come back from KOAA by bus or train.
