Presently the Rajdhanis, the Durontos, the AC express trains and all other ordinary LHB express trains are having exactly the same red color liveries. What do you feel does this thing makes degradation to the authenticity and class of Rajdhani?
NO vote
Yes it affects the uniqueness of Rajdhani. My suggestion for livery is

No separate liveries is required. Let it remain as it is.

I think that duronto color vinyl is not being procured by IR now as Duronto is now a past category of trains like Garib rath, Janshatabdi trains. That's why they now provide normal red color coaches to the duronto trains. Better would be if IR scrap the Duronto category itself and convert all present Durontos into Rajdhani/Deluxe AC SF category. Already the original Non-stop connectivity idea is irrelevant as all the durontos are have now got scheduled en-route halts.

Rajdhani is impossible as it doesn't connects NDLS. All Rajdhanis connect NDLS. hence the name.

Presently the train is underrated and less used.

Sharing the slot with other Rajdhani's or Durontos may have some issue but this can be extended till NZM from TVC and changed as Rajdhani via PER.

days Rajdhani from TVC to NZM 3 days via MAO, 2 days Via MDU, TPJ, MS, BZA ( New Train) & 2 days Via CBE, KPD, PER, BZA ( 22208/07).

This serves faster access to the National Capital from the southern districts of Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

The present slot from TVC of 22208 shall be kept as it is and its MPS between PGT and MAS shall be increased so that the running time reduced by allocating a time at MS & PER 9:00 / 9:15 then @ BZA 15:00 / 15: 05, WL @ 17:49 / 17:50, @ BPQ 20:55 / 21:00, @ NGP 23:50 / 23:55, @ BPL 05:10 / 05:20, @ JHS 08:35 / 08:40, @ AGC 10:45 / 10:50 reaching NZM by 13:25.

From TVC via CBE, ED, PER on SUN and WED, Via MDU, TPJ, MS on MON & SAT. ( MDU route halts @ - NJT, TEN, MDU, TPJ, MS)

On return starting from NZM @ 11:30 ( on MON & SAT Via PER, THU & FRI via MS) PER / MS @ 16:15 / 16: 25 reaching TVC by 6:15 am.

Run this train as a Bi-weekly RAJ from TVC to NZM by extending this Train to NZM in slot of MAS Raj from MAS. Give RSA with 12431/32{TVC Raj Via Konkan}. PM at NZM. {3181kms}. Give LHB Rakes to this train.

17.15(TVC[Su,W]) – 5.50/6.05 (MAS[M, Th]) – 10.40/15.55 (NZM [Tu,F]) – 20.40/21.00 (MAS) [W, Sa] – 10.45(TVC) [Th, Su];

MAS Raj slot is occupied all days of the week between BPL and NZM. SC Raj uses that slot from KZJ, BSP Raj from NGP and MAS Garibrath on one day.
The MAS Duronto and SC Duronto also partially block this slot by having the same arrival time at NZM as the others.

For the introduction of 22221/22 Arr. slots at NZm were changed.
If 22221/22 is made daily there may be some changes to Arr & Dep slot at NZM.
My suggesstion is MAS/SC/BSP RAJs & above bi weekly can take 15.45 slot for NDLS.(7 Days)
In return, they can take one slot from 20.45(NGP),2.10(BPL) & 10.40(NDLS)

SC/MAS Drnt & MAS GR can take 15.55 Slot from NZM.
In return, they can take one slot from 21.05(NGP),2.20(BPL) & 10.40(NZM)
