  1. SWR railway zone though doing good service,it is felt that it is not giving due importance to the pleas of the people from Karnataka,AP,odisha& West Bengal residing in Goa as to when the Amaravaty Express running between Vascodagama to Howrah 4 times in a week is running with 100% occupancy and earning maximum profit to Railways ,and the tickets are getting filledup before 2 months itself and big list of passengers on waiting list ” why the SWR authorities not running the train daily from Vasco to Howrah mutually beneficial to Railways and travelling to those 4 states from Goa.if any difficulty to get additional bhogies& engine on the remaining 3 days difficult atleast run the daily Amaravaty Express running between Hubli upto Vijayawada from Vasco on those 3 days keeping quotas for all major stations ( as it is widely rumoured that SWR for the exclusive benefit of kannadigas only that train is being run daily from Hubli to Vijayawada and if started from Vasco kannadigas find it difficult to get accomodation at short notice as is the case presently).To dispel this strong allegation and for good revenue to railways and benefit of Goan residents,it is sincerely hoped that SWR extends the Hubli Amaravathy express from Vasco for 3 days Howrah Amaravathy not running from Vasco.This satisfies all.Looking forward to this good gesture from Railway minister& SWR authorities very soon.
