The Great Attraction of VSKP is INS KURSURA(S20). If INS Vikrant (Old Air craft Carrier now retired Now braked down) was sent to VSKP that can also will be a big Hit and generate Revenue how this Sub is generating to Navy for her own maintenance. But un fortunately Mumbai not have that kind of interest on VIKRANT as AP have interest in KURSURA..........In September 2007, Vice Admiral Carol M. Pottenger of the United States Navy visited the submarine when she wrote in the guestbook "What a fantastic experience. The Indian Navy should be very proud of this awesome display". She said that the submarine was very well preserved and they did not have anything similar to it in the United States.

Must visit and feel the Submarine.

Please start a new Super Fast Express Ajmer-Chennai Vishakapatnam via Indore-Fa Bhopal-Nagpur- Durg-Raipur
It's a shortest rout from Ajmer to Vishakapatnam and better connectivity.

Parking Charges for 2-Wheelers 12hrs - Rs 10/- and additional every 6 hrs - rs 5/- . Vskp station is Wi-Fi and information boards of using railwire are kept in huge hoardings in front entrance No1. Near Enquiry counter. Charts are not displayed in station and two kiosks are placed to inquire railway information. Luggage scanner is there and working but if u carry without putting in scanner no one I'll object.

About VSKP Retiring Room & Dormitory :
1. There is direct entry to VSKP retiring room section from the FOB at BZA end (If coming from PFs 2-8). Direction markings available. If coming from outside, instead of entering main entrance, move towards right, towards premium car parking. At the end you have another entrance (quite big one) to PF 1 and same is for retiring rooms with the counter situated there too.
2. After you arrive at the station, you have to get a slip made in your name at the
counter situated below the retiring room (3 counters are there - PF ticket, enquiry & RR). On the slip you have to write your name & address and the person sitting will countersign it. Give that to the caretaker and now you are free to enter your booked accomodation.
3. In non ac dormitory, single beds (not in bunk style) are arranged in a hall just like hospital ward. Whereas in AC dormitory you get your own cubicle with the entrance to your bed guarded by a curtain, ensuring you get adequate privacy. Had it been door in place of curtains then it would have been private rooms.
3. The dormitories are clean including the washrooms and cleaning process goes on all the time during the day. During my stay from 1200 hrs to 0400 hrs , dormitory was cleaned 3-4 times.
4. You can bring your eatables in the dorm and eat there, no problem.
5. The switches for fans & lights are at entrance of dorm with switches mentioned like L1, F1 (for light &fan for dorm 1), L2, F2, and so on.
6. Cooling is adequate and adequate fans and lightings available. Room includes a bed, a locker, a charging point, and a set of 5 hooks for hanging clothes. Nothing else.
7. Last but not the least, be ready for the attendants (females) to come to ask for tips at the time of checkout. My checkout was early morning, so the came the previous evening itself.

भारतीय रेल द्वारा विशाखापट्टनम स्टेशन के PF 1 पर मनोरंजन हेतु फ़न ज़ोन शुरू किया गया है जिसमें बच्चे वीडियो गेम आदि खेल सकते हैं।
हुबली स्टेशन पर यात्रियों द्वारा खाने योग्य खाना फेंका ना जाये इस हेतु एक पब्लिक फ्रिज रखा गया है। यात्री इसमें खाना रख सकते हैं ताकि जरूरतमंद लोग इसे ले सकें।
