Aurangabad: Railway activists are up in arms against the authorities concerned for continuing to ignore their demands such as better connectivity and infrastructure, special trains during vacations and new rail lines.
Although their demands have fallen on deaf ears, the activists are optimistic that Marathwada in particular and Aurangabad in general will get a better deal during the next railway budget.
Omprakash Varma of Marathwada Railway Vikas Samiti said the South Central Railway (SCR) authorities have been ignoring the demand for better connectivity mainly because of lack of political will.

"Constant pressure from public representatives can only ensure that the demand for new trains will be met. Otherwise, Aurangabad, which is the tourists capital of Maharashtra and a major industrial hub, will have to suffer continuously due to poor connectivity," he said.
Senior authorities from the SCR had in March this year informally announced a new train to Mumbai via Aurangabad, followed by a hint from the then railway minister Suresh Prabhu during his Marathwada visit in June.
While no plans of new train to Mumbai could materialise for several weeks following the promises, SCR general manager Vinod Kumar Yadav on September 28 announced extension to Manmad-Mumbai superfast train up to Nanded via Aurangabad in a bid to increase train frequency to the state capital.
Known as Rajya Rani Superfast Express, the train (22101/22102), however, continues to run on weekdays on its old route between Manmad and Mumbai with no desired extension given despite lapse of more than a month.
Aurangabad currently has only one daily train to Nagpur and many passengers find its timing inconvenient. The demand for new train starting from Aurangabad at 8 pm and reaching Nagpur in12 hours has been also been ignored. Similarly, the demand for a new train to Pune has not been getting official attention for years now.
Rajkumar Somani of Marathwada Railway Pravasi Sena said that even if there is a big demand for a daily train to Pune from Aurangabad, no new train gets pressed into service.
"Over 500 buses, including private vehicles, ply between Aurangabad and Pune daily. Such huge number of private buses underlines the need for need for a new train service. Similar is the case with Nagpur as considerable number of private buses ply between Aurangabad and that city every day," he said.
A survey for rail line on Rotegaon-Kopargaon, Aurangabad-Sillod-Ajintha, Ambejogai-Kaij-Kalamb-Yermala and Pathri-Manwat-Sonpeth has been repeatedly demanded by railway activists.

Increasing the frequency of Kolhapur-Dhanbad Deekshabhoomi Express passing via Aurangabad, Hyderabad- Jaipur and Chennai-Nagarsol among other long-distance trains is also yet to be done.
Eight out of 11 MPs had turned their back on crucial railway meet organised by the SCR to discuss the rail connectivity needs of Marathwada on May 12
A K Sinha, divisional railway manager for Nanded division of SCR, could not be reached for comment. Other senior railway officials said the SCR and other zone always focus on passenger-centric functioning

Aurangabad: The South Central Railway (SCR) has decided to extend the Manmad-Mumbai superfast train upto Nanded via Aurangabad. Known as Rajya Rani Superfast Express, the train (22101/22102) runs on weekdays between Manmad and the state capital.
The route extension comes as the pressing demand for a new train from Mumbai to the Marathwada cities of Aurangabad and Nanded has been kept on hold due to saturation issues in the jurisdiction of the Central Railway.
SCR general manager Vinod Kumar Yadav said on Thursday that a proposal for the extension of the Rajya Rani

Superfast Express is expected to be approved by the railway board shortly.
"The Central Railway has clearly stated that it is not possible to accommodate operations of a single new train towards Mumbai from Nanded or Aurangabad due to choking issues. Trains from all over the country run towards Mumbai and therefore congestion is the real issue. Therefore, we have decided to give an extension to Rajya Rani Superfast Express, extending its journey upto Nanded," he said.
As per its current schedule, the Rajya Rani train leaves Manmad junction daily at 5.25am and is scheduled to reach the state capital by 10.07am. On its return journey, it leaves Mumbai at 6.50pm and is scheduled to reach at 11.25pm.
The existing trains to Mumbai, especially Tapovan Express and Nandigram Express, are avoided by many because of the huge number of passengers wanting to board them.
Omprakash Varma of advocacy group Marathwada Railway Vikas Samiti said the SCR authorities should give an immediate extension to the Rajya Rani train if they are not able to start a new train to Mumbai. "In the past, plans to give an extension to Mumbai-bound trains ahead of Manmad up to Nanded or Aurangabad had met with stiff opposition from passenger groups from Nashik. The SCR authorities should not heed such opposition if it resurfaces while extending the route of the Rajya Rani train," he said, while reiterating the demand for a special train to Mumbai.
Jalna-Dadar Jan Shatabdi Express, Mumbai-Secundarabd Devgiri Express, Mumbai-Nagpur Nandigram Express and Nanded-Mumbai Tapovan Express are the daily express trains that run to Mumbai via Aurangbad.
