I used to travel by this train many times some years ago. Recently I travelled and was very disappointed that the no. of UR coaches has come down from 6 to 3.

This is the lifeline for Rayalseema region to go to their capital region. Prashanti is always full at SBC itself. Then this was the lonely train catering to this region and used to get full even then. Now its a sad situation... it gets filled up at YPR and at YNK its standing. From there on its a total
struggle to get into the UR coaches.
The DMM tri-weekly only recently got 2 UR coaches. That too is filled full, I was told. The only remaining hope is Amaravati, which again comes jam packed.

This should be made Daily by changing its slot or changing the slot of ypr - kcg tri weekly.. Ideally, YPR KCG Triweekly should be made run in teh slot of GR.
The current BZA DMM is made to run on a round about route not only to give capital connectivity to NDL-YA route, but primarily to give conectivity between NDL-YA route and ATP.. it was actually made to run on that route by lobbying of JC. But a DEMU would be sufficient for the same. And the current slot of BZA DMM between BZA and NDL should be given to a daily express i.e BZA - HX which should have slip coaches to KRNT.

Bza dmm should run on straight route rather nandyal- ya route just for the sake of it else MPS of the section could be improved.
No additional advantage is being taken from the new line, and 2 loco reversals with a 2 hrs gap may cause low preference amongst the passengers.
Else they could start another train in the same slot or make the existing one biweekly as days of run are same as mtm ypr express.
there any station works going on nearby like bypass lanes?

earlier when we requested for this train to run via gtl people insisted that it requires loco reversal and time waste now its current run it takes 2 loco reversal and long too.
finally this train became flop train for people running in this with most expensive fare.
