Additional train from Mumbai to Dhanbad via Gaya & Hazaribag Rd.

This petition had 109 supporters

This petition will serve the people most who travel between Mumbai and Dhanbad Junction to Bhabhua Road Station.

There is roughly 10 Lakh people live in Mumbai who are natives of this stretch of stations. To serve this huge number of people, only one daily train is available i.e. 12321/12322 Kolkata/Mumbai Mail. One more train 18610 Hatia Exp.  runs on this stretch excluding Dhanbad, but once a week only. Because of the high demand and just one regular train, it's very tough to get reservation in this train during anytime of the year. The problem of getting reservation becomes worse in peak seasons during Summer Vacation, Diwali, Holi, Eid etc. People with waitlisted tickets travel too unwillingly in the reserved coaches, because they have to go to meet their parents or attend relative’s wedding or celebrate festivals with extended families and for similar reasons. I have seen 2-3 people travelling on single berth and thus more than 150 people travel in a Sleeper Class Compartment with a capacity of 72 berths. AC coaches are also no different. Condition of people travelling in General Compartment is unexplainable. Even the toilets are occupied by the passengers. Unauthorised travel agents take benefit of these desperate people and dupe them with black marketing of tickets.

We, the people of aforesaid area of the country, urge the concerned authorities to hear our plight mentioned above and make arrangement for an additional train from Mumbai to Dhanbad Jn via Gaya Jn, which will serve the people of aforesaid area.

I request all the people who are whether concerned with this petition or not, to sign the petition and help us to achieve our objective of helping people.

Jai Hind.
