WR was anticipating this. So, they already recently introduced BDTS JAM Humsafar & also added Sleeper coaches to it. It runs triweekly. Duronto was also planned up to JAM, but it would have eaten the AC Passengers of this Humsafar, so Duronto is only up to HAPA.

Also, JAM must logically get the Entire Quota of Veraval in Saurashtra mail.

Jun 05 (14:53)   महाराष्ट्र एक्सप्रेस जाएगी महाराष्ट्र से बाहर, गोंदिया से आगे जबलपुर होते हुए रीवा तक विस्तार का प्रस्ताव

01039/40 छत्रपति शाहू महाराज टर्मिनस कोल्हापुर से गोंदिया के बीच प्रतिदिन चलनेवाली महाराष्ट्र एक्सप्रेस के मध्यप्रदेश के रीवा स्टेशन तक सप्ताह में 3 दिन विस्तार किए जाने का प्रस्ताव दिया गया है और रेलवे बोर्ड से इस प्रस्ताव को सम्मति भी मिल गयी है। बस पश्चिम मध्य और दक्षिण पूर्व मध्य रेल से सन्मवय होते ही इस गाड़ी के चलने के दिन घोषित किए सकते है।
दरअसल रेलवे बोर्ड की यह नीति है, की गन्तव्योंपर गाड़ियोंके लाय ओवर पीरियड याने लौटने की अवधि में कमी लाकर गाड़ी के रैक का यात्रिओंके लिए यथायोग्य उपयोग किया जाए। इसी नीति के तहत गोंदिया से रीवा के बीच त्रिसाप्ताहिक चलनेवाली 01753/54 गाड़ी के 2 रैक महाराष्ट्र एक्सप्रेस के 4 रैक से संलग्न किए जाएंगे और
इतवारी रीवा इतवारी गाड़ी का रूपांतरण रीवा कोल्हापुर रीवा त्रिसाप्ताहिक गाड़ी में हो जाएगा।
इस विस्तार से रीवा, सतना, कटनी, जबलपुर, नैनपुर, बालाघाट के यात्रिओंके लिए महाराष्ट्र के वर्धा, बडनेरा, अकोला, जलगाँव, शिर्डी, पुणे, सातारा, सांगली, कोल्हापुर जैसे प्रमुख शहरोंसे सीधा जुड़ाव हो जाएगा।
रेल विभाग का दावा है, इस तरह दो गाड़ियोंके रैक लिंक कर चलाने से रेलवे का करीबन 100 करोड़ के यात्री डिब्बों का सही तरीकेसे उपयोग होगा। महाराष्ट्र एक्सप्रेस जो फ़िलहाल पुराने ICF कोच से चल रही है, वह LHB कोच व्यवस्था से सुसज्जित हो जाएगी।
गौरतलब यह है की हाल ही में कोल्हापुर से गोंदिया के बीच चलनेवाली 01039 महाराष्ट्र एक्सप्रेस के ढाई घण्टे स्पीड अप का व्यापक विरोध चालीसगांव, जलगाँव, अकोला क्षेत्र से, रोजाना जाना आना करने वाले यात्रिओंद्वारा किया गया था।

The Fare would be nearer to GR fare.

Now the Gap between Sleeper and 3rd AC is Quite too much. We will get a new product in between, targeted at those who cannot afford AC fares.

want AC coaches replaced but the Railways will carry their experiment to encourage SL passengers to shift. As Distance is limited, so cost diffrence will hopefully be not pinching.

that's since non AC travel in IR is too subsidized. IR staff costs have increased after Newer pay commissions like 5th pay, 6th pay, etc while ticket prices have increased but not in proportion to increase in costs.

IR doesn't want to do a significant increase in non AC tickets, so it is encouraging passengers to switch to AC economy from SL class.

If IR wants poor people to shift, it must CAP AC economy fares to ONLY 2 X times the sleeper fare. I don't know if it will happen.

पूर्व सांसद लल्लू सिंह ने भेजा था नाम बदलने का प्रस्ताव
रेलवे के अनुसार सेक्शन का निरीक्षण किया है, स्पीड ट्रायल किया है।100 किमी से ऊपर की स्पीड का अच्छी राइड मिली है। वहीं डबलिंग और इलेक्ट्रिफिकेशन मुख्य है जो कि, दिसम्बर 2023 तक जौनपुर का पूरा होगा। अयोध्या में पहले फेज में 15 हजार के आसपास तो वहीं फेज 2 में एक लाख का तीर्थ यात्रियों का फुटफॉल बड़े धार्मिक कार्यों के लिए तैयार किया जा रहा हैं।
