The present Sealdah station was originally two seperate station.
The present Sealdah Main and Sealdah North were known as Sealdah whereas the South Section was Beleghata railway station.
The Beleghata-Diamond Harbour line was built first followed by the Sonarpur-Port Canning branch line, followed by the Ballygunge-Budge Budge Line, which was inturn followed by the Baruipur-Laxmikantapur branch line...
The Circular link line from Majerhat to

So, while Prakash sir is absolutely spot on in his answer, even you are correct 'From a certain point of view!'

Is there some problem on the tracks between Jadabpur and Dhakuria?
Why are trains literally crawling on this section?
Already travelling on the Sealdah South is a torturous affair upto Park Circus due to obvious reasons, the only respite being around Ballygunge and now this?

Actually this should be the logical explanation , but the problem with that is that the train actually picks up pace once its crosses the Selimpur railgate, passes through the slum dwellings at a fairly good pace and begin slowing down at Dhakuria home signal, if ofcourse the DHK Home signal is clear....
The trains crawls for the entire stretch where it runs parallel to the Jadavpur University Campus, hence my bewilderment!

Even I had noticed the same thing on my last travel.
I do not think it has anything to do with JU. Might have to do something with the railgate.

@Jayashree ❖ Amita*^- Thanks for the information
I boarded this train on 18th Apr, 2016 and unfortunately found that the train does not run with Pantry Car.
So request Admin to update Pantry car info correctly for this train.
