7 out of 9 double-deckers unviable: Rly board member
Several coaches from Bhopal-Indore double-decker train were sent to Mumbai-Goa route owing to poor occupancy. However, that too is running at 40% occupancy as is Vijayawada-Secunderabad double-decker train, even though it was started on public demand. But Secunderabad-Tirupati route is mostly full, which again highlights the fact if only religious routes are viable."
In view of the same, chief commercial managers (CCM) across railway zones, where double-decker trains are plying have been told to review and take a call, he said.

I think SC-TPTY reaching 60% occupancy which is enough for full AC trains.

We cannot afford to run trains for 60% when there is demand for more than 100% in other routes.

Its as per RB directions only. They derived this equation, if it changes then sure many trains wiped out.
I think its not having 60% occupancy also. Better they train VSKP-TPTY or VSKP-MAS may be it helps.

Average could be below 40%.It is occasionally crossing.Above 60% thye can go for frequency increase.But as of now it is far better than other old big elephants.
