large number of Gujarathis and Rajasthanis are living in Thanjavur, Kumbakonam, Mayiladuthurai, Sirkazhi,Chidambaram, and Cuddalore.
At present, they have to go to Chennai to catch trains for their onward journey.
He urged the Railways to operate the new train via Thanjavur, Kumbakonam, Chidambaram, Cuddalore Port Junction, Vriddhachalam, Salem, Yaswanthpur, Hubli, Pune, Kalyan, Surat, and Ahmedabad.
This route will provide a direct train from the delta districts to Bangalore (Yasvanthpur), Hubli, Pune, Mumbai (Kalyan), Surat, Vadodra, Ahmedabad, and Ajmer.
Also, pilgrims from Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Maharashtra visiting temples in Chidambaram, Kumbakonam, and Thanjavur will get a direct train.
The train will fetch good parcel revenue of textiles and handicrafts from Surat and Ajmer and of brass items from the delta districts.
He has sent a similar communication to T. R. Baalu, MP, and Chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee for Railways, urging him to utilise his good office for operating the new train via Thanjavur, Kumbakonam, and Mayiladuthurai.

Tenders are proposed to be floated for the setting up of Coach Indication Boards here at the Nagapattinam Railway Station. This will be one of the significant interventions taken up by the Southern Railway following complaints of serious lack of critical passenger amenities for a main station such as Nagapattinam.
Lack of coach indication display boards on platforms 1, 2, and 3, has for long left the teeming pilgrims that arrive from across the country, primarily to Velankanni and Nagore, harried. In a written communication to the Thanjavur District Rail Users’ association president A. Giri, the Southern Railway said the expression of interest had been called from interested parties for setting up Coach Indication Boards here.

Thanjavur District Rail Users’ Association had earlier made a representation to the Southern Railway citing a report in The Hindu on November 24, 2013 on the lack of amenities and safety concerns raised by railway police. It was reported that the erstwhile accounts office building is seen as a security threat, especially for schoolgirls passing by, taking the shortcut to the government school nearby. In its response to A. Giri, Southern Railway has stated that the engineering department of Tiruchirapalli division would take up the demolition work and complete them in three months.
The pay-and-use toilet had been put in place on private contract basis. A garbage cleaning machine had been put to operation here.
While expressing satisfaction on the improved amenities, the Consumer Protection Council of Nagapatinam has requested for right-size ticket counter holes to facilitate communication between the booking clerks and the passengers.
According to Aravind Kumar, Vice-President, Consumer Protection Council of Nagapattinam, the counter holes are too small for audibility, delaying the ticketing transactions between the clerk, and the passenger. .
The UPS is not functional for the Unreserved Ticketing System (UTS) here at the station, he says.
The broadgauge line marks completion of five years today (on Wednesday) since its inception on February 27, 2009. However, for rail enthusiasts, this completion should mark the introduction of basic amenities, sustainable over a long period.
Many more facilities need to be improved

Welcome the Electronic Coach Indication Board in Nagapattinam Jn.During power failure, system maintenance time and non availability of the operator the Coach Indication Board does not works and passengers are in great trouble.
So along with Electronic Coach Indication Board a small ordinary board should be installed with Coach indication Board SHOWS the Coach position number towards Chennai permanently so as the passenger ascertain their coaches.

this train was likely arrive at Chennai Egmore around 7 a.m. as per the revised train time table, which will come into effect from February, the DMK has issued this warning.
Another resolution adopted in the meeting accused the Indian Railways of neglecting the southern districts of Tamil Nadu. The resolution said the doubling of track between Kanyakumari and Chennai via Tirunelveli should be expedited to ensure development of the region.
Adequate financial allocation for this purpose should be made in the next Budget.
Addressing the meeting, party’s district secretary V. Karuppasamy Pandian said only a couple of marriage halls in Tiruchi could be obtained to accommodate functionaries from Tirunelveli participating in the conference. He urged cadres to reserve their tickets in the Tirunelveli – Tiruchi Intercity Express train as private bus-operators might be denied permission to operate buses to Tiruchi for the conference.
Rajya Sabha MP S. Thangavelu, Palayamkottai MLA T.P.M. Mohideen Khan, former Speaker R. Avudaiyappan, former Minister Poongothai Aladi Aruna and former MLA M. Appavu were among those who participated in the meeting.

Southern Railway does not care for the TAMILIANS FESTIVAL 2014 PONGAL .No single specials operated for 2014 Pongal to the Coastal and Southern districts of the Tamilnadu.
SR always take care of the North East Region and the Northern region via Andhra State. SR operate so many trains from Chennai without any single stop in Tamilnadu Territory in the Chennai district and Thiruvallur District of the Tamilnadu state.
So we, Coastal and Southern Tamilnadu people demand a separate SOUTH COAST RAILWAY ZONE ( SCoR) with headquarters in TRICHY with the existing Trichy Division,Madurai
...

Division and the proposed new Tirunelveli Division.
Then SCoR can able to take care of the entire Coastal Districts of Tamilnadu ; such as Cuddalore,Pondicherry,Nagapattinam,Thiruvarur,Thanjavur,Sivagangai,Ramanathapuram,Thoothukkudi,Tirunelveli and Kanniyakumari and all other southern districts.
SCoR can operate daily trains to the Northern ,North Easten and North Western parts of INDIA from these area Cities , towns and Tourist places..
Till date SR does not operate any single Daily train from these Coastal and Southern districts of Tamilnadu and Pondy UT to the North,North eastern and North Western parts of our INDIA.So for the benefit of these Coastal and Southern districts of Tamilnadu state and Pondy UT new SCoR Zonal with headquarters in TRICHY CITY have to be formed.
New SCoR is a sustainable one with Thoothukkudi Major port , and several minor ports such as Kulachal,Kanniyakumari,Vembar/Sayalgudi,Rameswaram,Mandapam Thondy,Vedaranyam,Nagapattinam,Karaikkal,Tharangambadi,Porto nova,Pondicherry and Cuddalore.
All the MPs ,MLAs and Railway users associations of these Districts should demand for the creation of this vital new Trichy City based SCoR Zone and new Tirunelveli Division.Tirunelveli Division should be formed with all the Railway routes in Kanniyakumari,Tirunelveli and Thoothukkudi Districts.

Tea price increased from 5 rs to 7 rs. Its nice. But what improved with this 2 rs?. Are they using minaral water . Pls coment on this.
Mixed vegitable soup at 5 rs per 100 ml may be the better optional, it can be prepared as per the cheapest seasonal vegitables avilable in market.
Presently they are providing tomoto soup, its price is not at resonable and out of comment.
