I think the crowd should have reduced as an MEMU has been introduced from BYPL to KPN a few minutes after 16315/16316

but they should not break the law and enter reserved coaches and cause nuisance to other passengers all BWT people are rowdies,hooligans and goondas who threaten the passengers if u dont give them a seat .Need RPF on regular patrol.and my best suggestion to the reserved passengers would be to close the doors and shutters of your coach as soon as the train departs BNC and do not allow those BWT & KPN pax to board the reserved coaches.

Yeah, it all depends on authorities. If they get nod it is not at all a matter to not allow people without reservation into reserved coaches of sleeper. But do they care. I myself have heard and experienced many issues regarding this train. So think about overall passengers.
The DMU 76505 after this train & 16520 does not seems to attract those boarding Kochuveli train since there is gap of 30 to 50 minutes.
But some intervention is needed as the overnight journey on Kochuveli gets spoiled due to initial chaos at stations

U r right the water in taps are over,the toilets are smelly and disgusting,the coaches are dirty and since it is a 16 hr journey it is actually very difficult to travel in such conditions. SR&SWR should cancel the halts at KJM,BWT&KPN

TTEs are not seen on days except Fridays and Sundays. Hence, RAC quota allotment is difficult. Most of the passengers in this train disembark at Ernakulam.
Advice to passengers: Passengers with legitimate ticket may not be able to get into the train at KJM due to the heavy rush at KJM. Most of the people who embark from KJM are office goers who get down at BWT. Hence passengers with reserved tickets are advised to board from either SBC or BNC.

I had recently travelled between ERS and SBC..........not a single ticket checker turned up to check the tickets. The return journey was by YPR-KCVL Garib Rath express and even in that train, not a single TTE had come to check the tickets. There is no one to check these passengers .

I got the opportunity to chat with two squad members of TTEs (those not wearing the usual blazer of TTE but with ID card and badge) while travelling from KCVL to SBC in 16316. The chat was informative. They said that they were just present in the train to collect extra fares. They added that they were the only personnel deployed in the train. I also asked the reason for the same. They pointed out that there is acute shortage of TTEs by around 500 in Trivandrum Division alone. There are many issues concerning Indian Railways. It should be ensured that there are enough TTEs to verify whether the passengers are travelling with a valid ticket. Otherwise, it is a blow below the belt concerning revenue of IR. These factors, though petty it may seem, play an important role in the larger and continual development of IR.

Yes, you are correct. IR has not recruited TTE's after 2007 according to my friend who is TTE in Mayiladuthurai Jn. Earlier 2 SL coaches have been allotted to one TTE, now this has been increased to 3 coaches, it is really difficult to handle 3 coaches by a TTE, moreover all the flying squads are being removed slowly and they are being deputed to Trains as there are huge shortages in running trains. He said that 2013 & 2014 there are many TTE are getting retirements and shortage will increase more. If IR is not ready to appoint required no of TEE's. there will be huge revenue loss to IR, even though they are increasing the fare...

Train is punctual till KJM. Then it is held up for a long time due to crossings and priority given to local trains. Crowd from BWT also poses discomfort to passengers in SL coaches. Most of the times, water will have been over in taps too.

My Suggestion to Stop BWT Season Ticket Passengers getting into SL coaches.
Please close all the four doors of each SL Rake at Morning 6 Am itself

The train Toilets are very dirty by the time reaching Bangalore . And most of the times noticed that there will be no water in the pipes
There are lot of local travelers (with out sleeper Tickets) especially boarding from Bangarapet who blocks the passage & they create lot of noise too.
Once out from berth they occupy the seats & dont allow us reserved passengers to have a seat. Many people sit on the door way , which makes it difficult to move to the toilets & also get out of
