Re# 6018017-36              
That is why extensions are such a sham and so detrimental to the original station in the first place. BKSC is allocated PQWL in 13351 that was it's own train once.
RNC Division has cut off BKSC from several of it's train inspite of the fact that both lie in SER, because the divisional changeover is there. MURI lies in RNC Division and leaps the benefits of GNWL there.
Similarly ASN is now facing the RLWL axe on several trains originating from KOAA side.

That is why I was originally sympathetic to the guy from MLDT when Farakkha got extended. While MLDT retains GNWL as of now, it is likely to be discarded from the next ARP, as zonal changeover is there.

Air Connectivity prospects are also adversely affected due to weak political representation of Dhanbad.

Quota distribution depends upon the will of the zone and division. For instance, there is only GNWL quota on 18619/20 Intercity Express. RNC - MURI(incl) is under SER/RNC division, MURI(excl) - CRP(excl) is under SER/ADRA division, CRP(incl) - PKA(incl) is under ECR/DHN division, PKA(excl) - DUMK(incl) is under ER/ASN division, and DUMK(excl) - GODA is under ER/MLDT division.

SER can well accomodate BKSC under GNWL quota for SER/RNC and SER/CKP division originating trains.

Point taken, but such allowances won't be made for comparatively long distance trains like Delhi and North India bound trains.
Hope you catch my point. That's why I believe that extension of any trains is ultimately a major loss for the initial originating/terminating stations.
