Rescheduled is new term for delayed operation of trains now.

The term was first used for flights. Since last few years the flight operators inform the passenger that there flight is rescheduled to new departure timing to save the cost of refreshment to the passengers at airport.

The same practice has been started for train operations. It seems, it is being used to give a positive tone. Earlier they used to say, "The train is late by so and so hours/minutes." Now they say, "Due to operational reasons, the train will depart at so and so hours."

Once the train departs and there is further delay, they say, the train is late by so and so hours/minutes.

As long as they say with sincerity : "The Inconvenience Is Deeply Regretted," that will sooth away all problems...

Even then it costs too much.

We were supposed to reach Puri last night and had plan for the morning. Reached this morning. Cost of one night stay has gone wasted. Earlier had to stay in Kolkata for one extra day. So due to no fault of ours had to pay for two nights.

It pains more as they announce changes (so called "Rescheduled") at last moments.

Co-passengers informed us, they waited at Howrah railway station for around five hours, as they received message on the way to station, and decided to reach station in stead of returning home.

As an overseas resident, I am not "up to speed" with local issues... Has there been weather problems or something out of the ordinary, or are you just victim of bad luck as sometimes happens?

Was informed that 12277 Howrah Puri Shatandi Express and 12278 Puri Howrah Shatabdi Express is running four to six hours late since last one week or so, as it operates on single rake.

Since the last few days there are reports of a rail roko by locals at some places in Kharagpur and Adra divisions.
