Some bad news for GC section. reply of my Grievance regarding connectivity issue betwwn MGS-Gaya-DHN

Registration Number : MORLY/E/2017/XXXXX
Name Of Complainant: Ajay Singh
Date of Receipt : 05 Mar 2017
Received by : Ministry of Railways, ( Railway Board)
Forwarded to : East Central Railway
-------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------
Grievance Description
Sir/Madam My concern is about MGS_Gaya_DHN section in which passengers have to face lots of problem as there were no daily train after 12802 Purushottam Express to travel from BSB/MGS to Gaya-DHN. After Purushottam express there are 2 trains 13010 and 12308 but the punctuality of this train is very poor. The avg delay is about 3-4 hrs daily. Therefore people of SSM-DOS-Gaya-Dhn have to suffer a lot. Some time it took 12-15 hrs to travel from Bsb to Gaya and dhn. I saw people how they begging for train at DOS stn. Because of late running of DOS-GAYA pass, Daily passengrs from SSM DOS have to manage late night run.
My suggestion-
1. In every 2-3 hrs gap there should be a MEMU between Gaya AND MGS/BSB.
2. DHN GAYA Intercity should be extended upto MGS.
3. 12308 and 13010 should be speeded up so that it can reach gaya before 9 pm.
4. Train running timing should be revised according to need of the passengers. Sometime there is regular train here but sometime its blank for hours. .
5.Lack of FOB near Gaya Jn, too danger for the people , they are bound to cross the railway lines as there is no other way to cross it.
Thankyou sir/madam
Current Status: CASE CLOSED
************************************************** ************************************************** ************
Date of Action: 17 Mar 2017
Details :The suggestions has been examined which are as under:
1. Additional trains like MEMU requires additional rakes and maintenance facility which is not available near Gaya at present. Path is also not available in GC for introduction of new trains.
2. Extension of DHN-Gaya-DOS upto MGS is not possible at present due to path not available and MGS is already congested.
3. Timings of long distance trains are being made as per suitability of long distance passengers and not as per local passengers.
4. The delay in train running is only due to fog and maintenance works is recent months. Now punctuality of local trains is improved and being monitored on daily basis.
************************************************** ************************************************** *************
Your suggestions for additional trains is noted for discussion on the same in next time tabling meeting regarding feasibility or alteration.
Thanking you for upcoming suggestions.

12310/09 is not IRCTC I guess, so comparing is not possible. And Base kitchen is always a base kitchen, no matter where it is situated. Dal/Sabzi etc is made once for all 3A passenger whether it be Rajdhani or some other train like Duronto so, quality will not differ much as it used to be earlier, but quantity and extra items in the menu is the thing which makes Rajdhani/Durontos stand aside.
I suppose that you must have seen the episode of Natgeo "India's mega kitchen: IRCTC" if you did, then you
must know that they made all in one go without discriminating. And then they said: "Aaj ka consignment hai Howrah Rajdhani, Mumbai Rajdhani aur Sealdah Duronto"
So Rajdhani ka khana jo banta tha pehle onboard wo 10x Acha tha jo ab milta hai. And this is IRCTC, their quality differs time to time.
Do you think that Base kitchen has time that: Oho! Ye 12260 ka khana hai, ise sabse acha banao, MDH ke masale dalo.. and Oho! Ye 12302/12952 ka khana hai, in dono ko alag alag banao uar ADI RAJ ka bhi alag banao. They really don't have such time on hand to make food for every Raj separately. Thus, people saying 12260 ka khana is best is not that true, jis din 12260 ke 3A me acha khana gya hoga us din 12952 12302 ko bhi gya hoga.. and so.
However, there are much bigger vendors like MOW, and they make Rajdhani Class Food separately from other SFs in which they serve. MOW has large no. of diverse category trains operating with their food but here IRCTC has some 4 or 5 trains that too Rajdhani/Duronto Class.

Are Anirudh bhai, Sajeev ji was traveling from HWH to NDLS and he got bad food in that so you are saying that IRCTC mega Kitchen prepares Daal and Sabji in NDLS and that's loaded in Rajdhani from NDLS and is used in NDLS to HWH journey and also the very same is used in return journey from HWH to NDLS!! Khana Liquid Nitrogen me ban raha hai kya jo Kharaab nahi hoga? Their must be Base kitchen in HWH that would be providing food for HWH to NDLS journey.

Oho sir apne bas supporting statement ko padha... chaliye mai apne aap ko quote kardeta hun us reply se
"And Base kitchen is always a base kitchen, no matter where it is situated"
Ye maine kaha to tha uss reply me. :) I never said the same food is used in back journey. :P I was just trying to show that all base kitchens works that way. :)

There is Base kitchen in HWH, GAYA etc So, mera kehna ka matlab ye hai ki Khana ek hi baar me pakta hai, aaj agar HWH se kisi ek train ko kharab quality ki Dal mili hai to kisi aur train ko bhi waise hi milegi.. ha bas Class same hona chahiye (3A-3A, 2A-2A, SL-SL)
Aap us reply ko fir se padhiye.

If you think so by seeing ndls arrival times, ntes almost always shows incorrect destination arrival times esp if train is late. So it cant be concluded king had indeed OT 12313 & 22811 that day.

Last year almost throughout, there have been lot of delays in ALD-MGS route. Seems that now this route has got speeded up substantially but the delay has instead shifted to the Gaya-MGS route.

There seems to be a TSR being frequently imposed between Gaya and DOS in the Gaya-Mgs route and so trains getting delayed here almost daily due to not able to catch Mps upto DOS.
Is some maintenance activity going on in this zone? Anyone has any idea?

Ald-mgs has been speeded up but the greater delays of trains are in ald-cnb section. Gaya-mgs section TSR has not been imposed not in DN and that's for sure. Travelled in 22812 this Sunday. It left mgs at 2:05 and was West cabin gaya within 2 hrs with an avg speed of 100.5 kmph. Not sure about up direction.

No even in down it has been. But as I said, frequently it is there except some lucky days like your case. I just 2 days back came by 12314 and while it covered MGS-DOS in 1 hr 10 mins, immediately after crossing DOS bridge, speed got reduced and it took almost 1.5 hrs to reach Gaya from there creating around 30 mins delay. I checked status of all trains, even 12440 ahead reached gaya 40 mins late that day and all up trains had also got delayed in covering that section.
If you check the running histories, even yesterday this TSR was there.

Atleast for rajdhanis, CNB-ALD section is also going quite good. The issue is still in CNB-NDLS and now with the TSR in place, MGS-Gaya is also sometimes creating delays. Another section that has been speeded up is Gaya-DHN which nowadays takes 2 hrs 10 mins mostly and most make-up of delays in other sections happens here.

This might sound weird but I dont think I have any options. Normally 12314 is my favourite train to home for festival (Holi, Diwali,etc) But thanks to Govt Dynamic Surge Pricing (it really pissesd me off) I booked my first flight for tomorrow. Reasons: Almost at Par fare (Rs 2382), Overnight Shift (still working Friday night). So for fun I would be tracking 12314,12306,12260. Would also provide updates on my flight tomorrow and images. Besides would need help in going from Kolkata airport to Kolkata (KOAA) railways station, public transport as wells as CAB suggestions are welcome. Hopefully would take 12357 from KOAA-ASN and 13151 from ASN-KMME.
