Respected Sir,

                                               We would like to bring to your kind attention that southern district commuters from Kanyakumari and Tirunelveli of Tamilnadu are put under mental hardship since there are no adequate daily overnight train facility between Nagercoil ( Headquarter of Kanyakumari district) and Chennai ( our state capital) has been provided, while looking at our increased travelling need.

                                            It is hard to believe that since 15 years not even a single daily overnight daily train were announced in this potential route to meet our demand. We feel it is worth to highlight,that on daily basis 60 plus daily overnight omni buses ( operated from Nagercoil to Chennai, that means from Nagercoil alone nearly 2,500 passengers are making unsafe, expensive and less comfortable bus journey, which directly indicates that Southern Railway is not operating an adequate train service in this potential Nagercoil – Chennai route. In addition to private buses, government transport corporation is operating almost 40 plus overnight buses from Nagercoil, Kanyakumari and Marthandam to Chennai. In addition en route district passengers like Tirunelveli,Virudhunagar and Madurai too face a similar problem. 

                       Year on year it is becoming impossible for Kanyakumari District people to get a guaranteed ticket on 12633/34 Kanyakumari – Chennai Egmore daily super fast express due to increased demand combined with tourists and native district users . Therefore additional daily overnight train facility to Chennai is very much needed for our district commuters who largely depend on Chennai region for their job opportunities due to lack of industrialization in southern districts of Tamil Nadu.

                                                    Again we request your good office to kindly look into the matter with kind heart and consider running 12667/12668 Chennai Egmore – Nagercoil Junction weekly express on daily basis . It is Essential to highlight that operating a train from Nagercoil Junction will give a coverage of about 20 district passengers of Tamilnadu, being an end station of Tamilnadu .Hence we are very much expecting a favorable action by implementing the same to bring our 10 year long pending demand to an conclusion.

                                                               Thanking you,

                                                                                                           Yours faithfully
