Despite knowing that demand for seats by train passengers from Dimapur far exceeded the available quotas, the Northeastern Frontier Railway (NFR) has done precious little to mitigate the problem.

having to share their berths with other passengers.
The volume of train passengers continues to grow substantially but the NFR has remained unmoved.
Only two daily Express trains emanate from Dimapur and Guwahati-- Nagaland Express that departs Dimapur at around 6 a.m. while the same departs Guwahati at around 11 p.m.; BG Express departs Guwahati at around 2 p.m. and after arrival at Dimapur returns to Guwahati at around 9.45 p.m. 
A railway official at the Dimapur said passengers generally preferred Nagaland Express as the same train departs from Guwahati for Dimapur at around 11 p.m. In addition to the two, the Guwhati-Jorhat Jan Shatabdi Exp leaves Guwahati for Dimapur enroute Jorhat at 6.30 a.m. and on return halts at Dimapur for around five minutes enroute Guwahati and departs at 4.30 p.m. 
The other train is the Intercity that departs Dimapur 11.p.m. for Guwahati and the next day leaves Guwahati at 8 p.m. for Dimapur. 
The railway official informed Nagaland Post that there were no “off seasons” as the heavy rush for tickets was constant throughout the year. He said the number of passengers increased significantly during peak festival seasons like Holi, Dipawali, Chaat Puja and Christmas holidays, besides elections in neighbouring States.
The official further said that, apart from the two daily trains originating from Dimapur, there were around ten other trains that ply through Dimapur during the day and another 12 to 16 trains that ply through Dimapur at night
Meanwhile, speaking to this reporter, Lumding-based senior divisional commercial manager Ashok K Dey contended that the only option was to increase number of seats or additional trains to accommodate the increasing volume of passengers from Dimapur. 
Dey assured that he would apprise the senior divisional operation manager and divisional railway manager on the need for additional coaches and raise a request for addition of coaches in trains currently plying from Dimapur.

Under Project Utkrisht, all coaches of the revamped rakes will be fitted with ‘Swachh Rail Toilet’, which not o­nly reduces water consumption while flushing, but also ensures that the stench is minimal. The new toilets have various advantages like – no choking, quick discharge to bio toilet tank, complete sealing of odour, garbage bags in toilet etc. All AC coaches will also be provided with the new features like LED panel lighting, new types of bottle holders, braille signage, night glow stickers, new types of fire extinguishers, LED panel photo frame in first AC coaches, big size mirrors, anti-graffiti vinyl wrapping in the gangway area, toilets with exhaust fans, health faucets, auto janitors, Odonil containers, large size mirror, auto janitor system to control bad odour etc. All coaches will be fitted with energy-efficient LED lights – in the main interior, doorway, gangway and inside toilets. The upgradation of such facilities will slightly differ in sleeper class coaches and unreserved coaches. Even the pantry car will be upgraded with stainless steel panelling, stainless steel chequered plate o­n the floor and new stainless steel utensils and equipment for better hygiene. Trains being maintained under OBHS (Online House Keeping System), cleaning of toilets will be done every two hours and GPS tagged biometric attendance system will be provided. Suitable good quality posters will be framed highlighting cultures of North Eastern Region to improve the aesthetics inside coaches. Western style toilets in AC coaches will have provision of seat cover dispenser. Good quality destination boards will be provided in all selected trains.
Implementation of the Project Utkrisht is a dashboard item of the Railway Minister, i.e. it is being monitored by the Railway Minister personally o­n regular basis. The target for upgrading the rakes is by 31st March 2019 after which more such rakes will be taken up in the next phase under this project.
