Agreed but it definitely needs speeding up so that the rake returns back to its base station i.e. TVC.
One way could be to eliminate rake reversal at ERS. As it halts at ERN, ERS halt could be removed...

TVC to CLT is good suggestion,but it should been provided more reserved coaches including CC too.
Speeding up also should be done. Otherwise the journey will like a hell.

welcome move. Adding an additional rake (as it cannot return to TVC with same timings), a new Calicut-Alleppy/Kottayam/Ernakulam Intercity can be planned (Coimbator-Mangalore is there in the morning, so ERA/ALLP-CLT would be a good choice and would help in reducing some load from Venad and Parasu)

Is it possible to penalize a passenger boarding a reserved 2S coach in an Express train(say an Intercity Express), with an unreserved II class ticket (applicable to the same train for travel in Unreserved coach)?
If yes, what is the maximum amount that can be realized as fine?
Though the difference in fare was just the reservation charge, saw a TTE warning such passengers with fine upto Rs. 300/-. Hence just curious to know if such a fine is possible.

I travel in janmabhoomi exp Vskp SC in general sitting coaches reserved. Lot of unreserved travellers board the reserved coaches and all the corridors are filled. TTE checks the tickets and if someone is seated in reserved coach he collects rs 15 as reservation fee and gives an receipt and doesn't Ccollect any amount from standing travllers . Never saw TTE asking or warning fine of rs 300. I think its possible to collect as unreserved cannot travel in reserve coaches and are liable to be penalize fine.

Although it is a punishable offence, TTEs leave them as long as they don't occupy the seats. It is a common sight in daily ICEs of SCR like Janmabhoomi exp, Satavahana, Pinakini and Ratnachal.

In SBC-ERS Intercity express, there are lots of passengers who board from CBE, PGT bound towards ERS. Many a time the TTE hardly comes to check, but there have been few occasions wherein he has come to check and has taken additional reservation charge (Rs 25/Rs 30) and has also issued receipt for the same.
The amount being relatively small, passengers do end up paying

Deeply upset with the late running of 16302 TVC SRR Venad Express day after day, regular commuters blocked it @ KTYM today morning. More details: click here
Frankly, SR/TVC seems to be having the worst lot of controllers now. Most of their actions defy logic.
Today morning 12777 UBL - KCVL SF Express, which was running late, but comfortably ahead of 16315 SBC KCVL Express was detained @ KZK, the station just before its destination. 12777 was held for good 15 minutes to let 16315 overtake, which also ends up its journey
@ KCVL. Incidentally both PFs @ KCVL was empty as LTT Garibrath had already left at 0850.
Interestingly, 12777 has PF turnaround & returns to UBL @ 1250 whereas 16315 has PM @ KCVL & departs at 1645. Also, the loco of 12777(#offlink ET WAP 4 22927) was detached first & dispatched to TVC!
On Tuesday, the rake of 16342 TVC GUV Intercity scheduled to depart @ 1730 was placed on PF 3 at TVC only by 1720. Without any announcement, 16304 TVC ERS Vanchinad (dep: 1745) was allowed to leave ahead of Intercity. Incidentally, 16341 has first stoppage @ VAK, whereas Vanchinad halts @ KZK, CRY & KVU before stopping again @ VAK. In short, a train with more halts was leading the one with fewer stoppages!!

That's not possible.
For that 1 more rake should be there. With a single rake its not posibble.

A Consumer Court in Kerala directs Railways to permit season ticket holders to travel in Sleeper Class during day time. Railways get a month to implement the Court's decision. Anyway, feeling pity for those bona fide SL passengers who reserved their seat/berth months in advance, hoping for a comfortable journey.
Also, fail to understand the logic behind permitting passengers holding Second Class Season tickets to travel by Sleeper Class, which has a higher fare structure.

PVRD - KRPP double line opened for rail traffic on 01.10.2016 bringing slight relief for train commuters in KTYM - ERS sector.
As per this new report, for carrying out doubling of KRPP - ETM stretch extending 8 km, land acquisition of 5 km portion alone is complete.
Will these leaders posing with green flags kindly intervene and speed up the land acquisition process so that doubling of KRPP - ETM sector gets completed atleast within next couple of years?
