This is to express my concern over the unbelievable, unjustifiable struggle of thousands of people from the southern most India to travel to the Hot Spot Hi Tech city, Bangalore for Education, Business or job purposes. This is because of the non availability of a convenient train in this route. This is a very surprising fact as this route can also be a very profitable route for the Indian Railways.
There are hundreds of people who travel to and from Bangalore to Nagercoil via. Madurai, every day. They struggle to get transport and often they end up spending a lot of money to travel by the private omni buses. This is mainly due to the fact that there is no daily train in this route. We have been demanding a daily train in this route for the past 15 years. Therefore, it will be a great help for the people if you assign one daily train for this route (Bangalore to Nagercoil via Madurai and Tirunelveli).
There is a rumor among the public that private buses have bribed the responsible officials to reject and block the daily train service.
SUB : Requesting Nagercoil – Bangalore Daily train service
I am a frequent traveller in the Bangalore – Nagercoil route .There are many people, including my friends and colleagues, who are from Nagercoil and work in Bangalore. There are thousands of such people in Kanyakumari district. All of them travel regularly in this route.
Every time, they struggle traveling by the only available mode of transport, the private omni buses, paying a lot of money. They are compelled to travel by these buses because the only weekly train running between these destinations runs at a very inconvenient time for office goers.Currently, Nagercoil – Bangalore 16537/16538 train is the only train plied in this route once a week. Moreover, it is plied on odd days and timings which are totally useless for the students, business men or office goers. This train may be operated daily for the better convenience of the people.Moreover, changes are necessary in the timings to help the passengers reach in the morning hours both at Bangalore and at Nagercoil. Nagercoil-Bangalore route is definitely a commercially profitable route, too. There is a rumor among the public that private buses have bribed the responsible officials to reject and block the daily train service.
This route is badly in need of a direct night train service on a daily basis. Hence, it will be a great help for the citizens if you assign a daily train for this route (Bangalore to Nagercoil via Madurai,Tirunelveli).
Please consider my humble request and do the needful.
