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.

Unofficially ER has 8 A1 station right now (taking 60cr landmark into consideration) - SDAH, KOAA, HWH, BWN, ASN, JSME, BGP, MLDT. Many of them are in transition period

I often do travel between Bardhaman and Asansol in various trains but yesterday was a spacial trip as I experienced a spacial fight between priority and logic between Howrah division and Asansol division. Let me share this experience with u all
So yesterday I reached Bardhaman station by 17.30 to catch mithila exp and travel till Asansol. Everything was fine until 17.40 when an announcement was made - May I have your attention plzz, train no 03043 up Howrah raxaul spacial exp via Asansol, barauni is coming shortly on platform no 2.
I quickly opened NTES to check this train that how much priority has this train received between Howrah and Bardhaman but unfortunately and quite surprisingly NTES announced 03043 to be an invalid train. Anyways within 10mins, I found hwh RXL spacial arriving on pf 2 with Tigar faced Waggie from Jhansi. The train was almost completely empty, around 30 pax were there in each coach. Within 2-3mins, I heard announcement which addressed passengers not to cross railway tracks as a passing train will come on pf 1. Within minute I found Howrah Rajdhani aka king thrashing pf 1 of Bradhaman. Our train was still now halted at Bardhaman. Again within 5mins, Sealdah raj aka queen crushingly passed pf 1 of Bardhaman. Now it was 19.05 and this time announcement was done for the arrival of Mithila exp on pf 3. Mithila exp arrived Bardhaman sharp at 19.09 with Howrah red beast in lead. So I was in a dilemma whether to go with HWH RXL spacial or de board from it, as i found many passenger getting down from the spacial and boarding mithila exp, and board mithila express. As I was thinking over this topic, suddenly I found my hwh rxl spl running, it was now 19.12. As we departed from Bardhaman, we found poorva exp arriving on pf 5. Just after departing from Bardhaman, our train was given on the slow line but it maintained good speed till Khana. At khana outer we were halted and experienced Xing with RPH BWN MEMU and ASN BWN MEMU. And then as suspected, Mithila exp overtook us with full MPS. I couldn't find any logic behind this overtake as Hwh RXL SPL has only one halt between Bardhaman and Asansol, ie, Durgapur whereas Mithila express has 5 intermediate halts between the same stations. Anyways, we were halted for 10 more minutes at khana outer and then we were given green signal at 19.30 After crossing Khana, we were given on the mainline. Soon we found ourselves running at full MPS, the highest speed I recorded was around 108kmph between mankar and durgapur. We arrived Durgapur at 19.58. After departing Durgapur, we were again running at MPS. And finally at Raniganj, we re-overtook Mithila exp with full MPS. Finally we arrived Asansol at 20.30. Mithila later got struck due to platform congestion at Asansol and arrived Asansol at 20.40
Howrah Division - 13.1km in 20mins @39kmph
Asansol Division - 92.9km in 1hrs @93kmph
In my opinion the controlling was a much rational, logical and better in ASN division than HWH division. I coulnt find reason behind this overtake and reovertake and that too for a train which is known as a crawler and has schedule behind that spacial

I think khanna is the last station in hwh div so may be it was not received by the asn division as have to wait as transfer of controlling to ASN division

Re# 2625186-6            Tags   Past Edits
Yes mithila got delayed by 35mins but it was not becoz of the overtake. As bwn-asn is quadruple section so the reovertake didn't affected mithila. Mithila was given on the slow line and spl overtook it from the mainline, mithila was not halted anywhere for overtake as was done for SPL when mithila overtook it.
Mithila got delayed mainly becoz of pf congestion at ASN. When I reached I found that none of the pfs were vacant there - pf 3&7, the line between pf 6 &7 and between 2&3 was occupied by freight, pf 6 was occupied by asn-jsme memu, pf 5 by late JSM hwh exp, pf 4 by hwh RXL SPL, pf 2 by asn-dgr memu and pf 1
by asn-adra memu

No nothing of that kind occurs at Khana, at least being a frequent traveller between ASN and bwn and vice versa, I haven't noticed something like that
And moreover mithila skipped Khana at mps, so mithila got signal from ASN div even though it was running behind SPL and SPL running in front of mithila didn't got clearance, is this really possible??? I don't think so

Not really, still now hwh div is also maintaining good punctuality with only 2/3 lines. Thing will be much better when 4th line will come up between dankuni and saktigarh and 3rd line between Bandel and saktigarh
But yes, that overtake of the spl by mithila was a illogical one
