not possible to send the morning arrival rake of YPR at 1.30 pm same day.
after 2000 kms run PM needs at least 8-10 hrs time. then Gitanjali TT needs change which is not desirable.

Because of introducing such short distance halts, people traveling by this train, so That's why, I objecting such short distance halt. If Jalgaon is big city & it deserve halt then why train stopping at Bhusaval? You know, you can not avoid Bhusaval halt of any train, so Is it fair to stop train which travels 1968 KMS should stop at Jalgaon which is 25 KMS far from Bhusaval?
When you ask halt for every & each town/ city then do you think about the current patronage of train? if train running empty then it deserve halt but train like Geetanjali which is already at it's peak capacity, is OK to stop
at JL, SEG, Malkapur etc?
Now point two
How many Jalgaon people traveling by Geetanjali to Shegaon go for reservation? I am sure answer is hardly or single digit . Max people traveling to Shegaon just purchase S/F Genral Ticket & entering SL Coach, Requesting People for adjustment for seats who have proper reservation without thinking about there comfort. This is harsh reality so that's why I strongly feel Short distance halt should be remove I know not possible from all trains but prestigious trains.
I request, not only Jalgaonkar but also Bhandarakar, Malkapurkar, Shegaonkar please spare Geetanjali
BTW, I hope you took this reply in right manner.

अगर मेट्रो रेल को भारतीय रेल के साथ जोड़ेंगे तो दुर्घटना होने की संभावना भी बढ़ जाएगी इसलिए मेट्रो को निजी कंपनी के हाथों में रहने दें।

The following lines should be made Doubling & Electrified by giving funds in the coming Budget or Centre and State cost sharing basis.
i) WADI - PUNE (Helps in reducing time between LTT, ADI & SC)
ii) CT - GTL
iii) FM - GY - BYPL (Helps in reducing the bus traffic between Hyderabad & Bangalore)
SC - MUE - NSL (Helps in reducing the bus traffic between Hyderabad & but also provides alternative route to JAT, CDG, ASR)
v) MUE - ADB - MJRI (Helps an alternative route to HWH & NDLS)
vi) BN - NLPD (Helps in reducing the bus traffic between Hyderabad & Vijayawada also helps in developing NLDA like WL and GNT like BZA)
vi) NLPD - DHNE (Helps in alternative route to SBC)
vii) BZA - GDV - MTM - BVRT - NS - NDD (Alternative route from BZA to RJY)
viii) VZM - TIG - R (Shore & alternative route to NDLS, LTT, SNSI, ADI, JP etc)
ix) KPD - TPTY ( Alternative route to SBC, TVC from GDR)
x) KTV - KRDL (Should be done as national project as not only WAT & ECoR but whole of India is dependent on this,since it is earning 6000 Crores per annum in single line)
Only Electrification
i) NWP - GNPR ( Helps in running EMU from VSKP & PSA and an overnight exp from BBS)
ii) PAK - DMM

FM-GY/GTL-BYPL is very crucial line between North & South. It provides an alternative route to the already congested WL/KZJ-BZA-MAS. Once this gets completed this route lessens the time between CBE/MYS/SBC/SSPN/GY/GTL/ & SC /KZJ /BPQ /NGP /BPL /GWL /NDLS /DDN / CDG/ ASR/ JAT. It also provides an alternative and short route to the southern most places like CAPE/ NCJ/ RMM/ MDU/ TPJ/ KPD/ TPTY/ RU/ SA/ ED/ PGT/ SRR/ ERYN/ KTYM/ CLT/ CAN/ KYJ/ QLN/ KCVL/ CAN/ TVC from SC once GY - RU gets Doubling and Electrified.

Unless SC - GNT and DHNE - GNT are doubled and electrified GNT continues to play second fiddle to BZA
