There is also a possibility of diverting Mannai express via TVR, and splitting it as MS/MQ and MS/VLKN at TVR itself. Once the train reaches TVR from MS, VLKN slip will be detached, MQ slip will proceed and another Loco will pull the VLKN slip on the opposite direction.

diversion of mannai is expected at any time but not possible to attach VLKN-MS link exp,SR will do clever thing by splitting TJ-MS and VLKN-MS at MV so they can give 20 coach train for (10+10) combo or for sake of TJ(12+8) may be possible,they wont disturb kamban's RSA and mannai's RSA.....

Yes I do agree with you. A separate ONT is the need of the hour. This is a first step towards that. The very urgent issue is, due to loco reversal at Needamangalam, the railway gate on the National Highways is closed for more than 20 minutes both morning and evening. So people approached the High Court.

Open prepaid account with IRCTC and book your rail ticket...
Booking railway tickets will be a tad easier and faster once a system of having an account with the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) comes into being.
In a bid to make booking easier, the IRCTC has decided to launch a Rolling Deposit Scheme (RSD), under which anyone can deposit the desired amount in the account to be opened with the service provider.
The
...
more...
user could purchase tickets from the money deposited by using the RSD card as a novel payment option, which the IRCTC claims has advantages over the other modes of payment. The system would enable hassle-free and secured transactions, besides saving time by eliminating the payment approval sequence. It reduces the user’s dependence on banks and their servers and allows for booking tickets directly through the RSD mode. The other benefit is that the user need not make the payment gateway charges. The tedious process of using credit or debit cards for making online purchases is done away with under the proposed scheme.
One can open an account using the PAN card and operate the account through a transaction password and PIN number and manage the account online and top up the account too.
The minimum deposit is likely to be in the range of Rs. 1500 to 2000.
Registration fee
The account can be opened with a registration fee of Rs. 250, which can be redeemed while booking tickets later.
The IRCTC will provide facility for the user to track the transaction history and in case of cancellation of ticket, the refund would be deposited in the account the very following day.
Thanks to The Hindu

But the hassle in ebooking thorough payment gateways will be reduced. In several occasions I lost money due to communication problem between IRCTC and Payment Gateways. Especially at the time of booking Tatkal tickets, it will be more useful. So let us welcome this decision of IRCTC

Looks good
1. saving bank charges for each transaction
2. possibly no timeout issues as no bank payment gateway is involved
3. faster processing - both while booking n cancellation

this is one more method of IRCTC to get money from us... Hmmm... as the time goes only we can know it is nice or not. but Rs.250 for registration is not admissible.. it should be free.

before two decades people want new lines for them to connect with chennai.its not difficult for them when they travelled to chennai.but now they are asking for shortcut for various destinations.in tamilnadu still there are five lines are GC progressing.beyond tiruvarur people are suffering without direct connections to chennai.already central govt didnt alloted enough funds for GC conversion projects.instead of alloting funds for low revenue lines they should allot funds for MG lines to be changed as BG.famous line when it was in british rule between tvr-kkdi but now they didnt care about this line.there are many important places like thiruthuraipoondi,aranthangi,muthupet,peravoorani.the estimated amount is 700crs for tvr-kkdi GC.in railway budget they didnt alloted funds for this line and announced survey for new lines.its unfair railways not interesting in alloting funds for this line.so to avoid unnecessary confusion in the name of new lines they should allot funds for tvr-kkdi line.if they...

I could understand your demand for the fund allocation to the GC projects. But I can't accept your objection towards the new lines. I mean, you are worried about the proposed Mannargudi-Pattukkotai new line. Most of the people are thinking that if this new line comes, the TVR-KKDI section will be abandoned. But it is not correct. Time will prove that both lines will come into existence and help the delta people.

one more thing i left out.already railways is running in loss,an "brave man" who is now former RM was thrown away from power by his party.without developing infrastructure facilities how can we expect good service for us.he increased the fare and aimed to increase the revenue for RB to implement new lines,GC,etc.but he was resigned and now railways facing dangerous economical problem even frieght revenue is better than passenger revenue.so without having enough fund in hand how can we lay new lines.so if it will be used for useful gauge conversion projects it will be gud.there is 20lakhcrores needed immediately for railways.so if central govt allots demande amount for railways we can ask for new lines.otherwise there is no use of now.remaining funds should be used for GCrojects.

when it was in MG there were lot of trains ran via tvr-kkdi section.once upon a time it was very busy.also it was famous line 100years ago trunk route was started by british govt from ms-rmm via mv,tvr,kkdi.lot of passenger trains ran and famous sethu express,boatmail express,kamban link exp(6875/6876 tambaram-nagore/karaikkudi).but now their fate has to be changed.they are suffering without BG trains,even railway ministry also not interested in implementing this railway project because of "political pressure".there are many important towns in this route if SR finishes this line within 4years it will be nice to see an alternate route from southern districts to ms(vpt-mnm-kkdi-tvr-mv-vm-ms).before a week heard a news that GC between tvr-kkdi has been announced and the works will be finished by phase to phase.it requires 700cr for this project.its better to replace old lines to bg make it useful for people while alloting funds to unnecessary "new lines".

I too agree with the demand for the GC of TVR-KKDI section and introduction of the trains which were already operated on this section. Public, Traders, Public representatives of the areas concerned should exert pressure on SR to get the required funds allocated.

think that it is a more workable solution and would benefit all the parties (Passengers of Mannargudi section – Passengers of Thanjavur/Kumbakonam section and the Railways itself as the running cost reduced to a great extent).
