Come October, and the Indian Railways will offer reservation on demand on select long-distance routes- and that too without leveling any extra charge to passengers.
To begin with, Railways are planning to introduce the idea of reservation on demand on sectors like Mumbai-
New Delhi, Lucknow-New Delhi, Mumbai-Howrah, and Chennai-New Delhi. If successful, the scheme would be implemented pan-India for all premier, mail and express trains by 2020.
if something like this happens..it will be one of the biggest achievements for railways :P
Bhai, Yeh reservation on demand waala funda humein samajh mein nahin aaya
just like KSRTC does
as the demand WL surges; it introduces new services with SPL fare within hours
IR says no SPL fare; lets see
Sounds impossible. The volume of festivals passengers is way beyond capacity.
* It would be very good if Reservation on demand is available and that too at normal fares.
* Practically it looks possible only after capcaity of saturated sections is duly augmented.
* By 2020, we can expect JNPT-Dadri and Ludhiana-Sonnngar DFCs to be operational and Reservation on demand may be possible on routes like Mumbai-Ahmedabad/Delhi, Delhi-Kanpur/Lucknow/Varanasi/Patna etc but for throughout IR network, it will be difficult.
Aisa ho jaye to railway ke charan cho lo me
दैनिक रेल यात्री मंच ने रेल मंत्री सुरेश प्रभु से बिलासपुर से हावड़ा और बिलासपुर से मुंबई के लिए ट्रेन चलाने सहित छत्तीसगढ़ में यात्री सुविधाओं के विस्तार की मांग की है। मांग संबंधी ज्ञापन उन्होंने विश्व हिंदू परिषद धर्म प्रसार विभाग के केंद्रीय मंत्री के जरिए रेलमंत्री सुरेश प्रभु तक पहुंचाई। रेलमंत्री ने मांग पूरी करने का आश्वासन दिया है।

Make Tata-Ltt Antodaya as Biweekly with Good Timings For BSP, R and Durg ... Problem Solved
But what about long distance passenger.
Jabalpur to Hawra via Nainpur and Gondia can be introduced one GC is over.
Cities of Chhatisgarh are 1000-1500 kms away from Mumbai and reserved accomodation is required, so fully unreserved Antyodaya is not much useful.
The demand for BSP-Mumbai train is genuine as many a times People of Chhatisgarh are forced to board Duronto, Vidarbha, Sewagram express from NGP/G as other trains coming from HWH/BBS/HTE runs packed round the year. There are many trains from HWH and new train should be started from intermediate stations. It would be better if the proposed train starts from Korba instead of BSP as Korba have no direct connectivity to Mumbai. Similar is the case with connectivity of Pune with Chhatisgarh.
Kolkata: The Eastern Railways (ER) is staring at a bleak future with no takers for its double decker trains. The Railway Board is yet to respond to its proposal of running it in routes where it might have a reasonable demand.
“We wrote to the Railway Board four months back saying we were not in a position to run the train after we suffered huge losses. But there has been no response,” an ER spokesperson said.
Railway minister Suresh Prabhu had announced last month that Utkrisht Double-Decker AC Yatri (Uday) Express
Uday dd is night
But vskp bza,cbe sbc uday dd proposed in day time
So this dd will given to any one of above trains
Unless uday dd concept (night jrny )changed
sbc cbe day uday will work ?
it will fetch pax ?
Locals want overnight train
Instead dd alloted i dont think paxs will show interest
Yes. There is lot of demand. There is no ICE in the morning from CBE to SBC before 12678. Atleast it will have patronage like that of 22625 which will keep it running without generating loss.
so whats the purpose ?
it will be another Flop
Haha u comparing mas sbc demand with cbe sbc?
22625/6 runs full on holidays/weekends. Rest of the days,it gets 60% full.
Actual train that was demanded was an ONT.
Discuss cbe sbc ,who wants mas sbc data sheta
it can only be sucessful where to larg cities are less than 500 km apart.
Finally, the first DD of IR & ER is set to die. Eastern Railway has urged Railway board to rope in the rake of HWH DHN DD to ply in different route under different zone.
