tickets in the junction.
The petition also said that many passengers in the Chennai — Salem Express (Train No. 11063) that arrives at the junction at 6.30 a.m. are from Rasipuram and Namakkal.
Since the Salem — Karur passenger train departs at 6 a.m. the passengers could not catch the train and hence wanted the Salem — Karur passenger train to depart at 7 a.m.
The petition also sought stoppage of Salem — Yesvantpur train at Salem Town station so that more passengers could benefit.
