if you want to go directly,there are 2 options
take a TNSTC bus from nagercoil,or get a triweekly train
if you want to break your journey, go to madurai mattuthavani bus stand from nagarcoil via virudhnagar and get an overnight bus to rmm
if going by road,you need to come to nagercoil by local bus as there are less buses from kanniyakumari

The thing is that on the day i want to travel, that tri weekly sf does not run otherwise that was best. Now i hav two options - direct bus from kanyakumari to nagercoil. OR take thirukkural exp/ ncj-cbe exp to madurai and from there an early morning bus to reach rameswaram by 7-8 am.

In that case,I would choose nagarcoil to rmm TNSTC ultra deluxe semi sleeper bus,
It will go via virudhnagar manamadurai I think, at least it will be a direct connection.
Also there is a chance of private sleeper overnight buses,so you should enquire about it.
Going to Madurai by train,than catching early morning bus will spoil your night.

case you give preference to go via madurai, get out of railway station to get to city bus(78,78A) to mattuthavani bus stand,which runs 24*7.
at bus terminal,rmm bus might depart from platform 2-3 not sure,but you can see on chart or get help from help desk.
Bus fare will be about 70-80 rs from mdu to rmm
Don't take an auto as they'll ask more fare, instead go for FastTrack prepaid taxi or ola.
Distance from madurai to mattuthavani bus terminal is about 10-12 kms

You can't give SR train to SCR,you need to utilize it in SR itself

But still, extension to Madurai/CBE is much better,as they can run mdu/cbe to Ms as overnight garib rath weekly, pm at Chennai, then overnight to mdu/cbe
Cleaning at mdu/cbe,and depart as nzm garibrath from mdu/cbe to reach me/mad at 6am
The train will become end to end slow,but garib rath don't need creteria of 75kmph avg unlike rajdhani/durunto/shatabdi
This will also help railway
