While checking webmaster 'html improvement; - there are over 1700 pages showing duplicate title tags
I have applied 301 redirect to almost 85% of those pages through htaccess and other ways, almost 3 weeks back

While checking the duplicate title tag of those pages in webmaster, when clicking am redirecting to the original page through 301 redirect
Infact, my rankings are also down for most of the keywords in last 2 months and the redirect was applied in mid Jan, still over a month - the duplicate title tag are showing and SERP is not getting improved

1) your redirections are indeed 301
2) your site's pages no longer carry links to any of the now redirected pages
It takes a long time for that many redirections to be discovered and applied to the urls already indexed. All pages which may have had links to them also need to be recrawled and recached so that links to currently redirected pages are no longer anywhere in Google's memory.

yes, its 301
yes the site architecture checked, the old links are not placed at best to any of places
Also, the pagination pages of some of the content have been marked as 'no index' ... page 2, page 3.. till page 50
Still - the duplicate pages shown in webmaster do consider the 'noindex' and pages for which a 301 redirect been applied
Any ideas, how long does it take for google to remove those duplicate pages as Search engine rank positions are impacted (despite any new content been added up in site is crawled frequently in hours)

Sorry, we'd have to see some real examples with urls. There may be something clashing.
For instance a 301 will never be found if the url is blocked in robots.txt.
At the same time a url which had a noindex meta tag might have already dropped out of the index, so it's not likely to be recrawled too soon in order for the redirection to be found.
