i am wondering how the passengers from PUU would benefit with this train with the timings mentioned in this report? It could benefit office goers till ERS/ERN. From ERS/ERN, it remains to be seen who will prefer this train over Bangalore Intercity, which takes about 90 minutes less to reach PGT.

It surely will have more takers especially between Palakkad and ERS on its return journey to Punalur. As of now after SBC-ERS Intercity express, there are no trains towards ERS at least till night 10pm (with a few weekly exceptions).
This train departing Palakkad at 4pm and reaching ERS at around 7:10 will surely be a good option. 3hours to reach ERN despite being a passenger train and stoppages at almost all stations is quite a good speed . Moreover passengers will need to pay lower fares.

It will certainly take the load off Venad Express and expecting to run jam packed between KYJ & ERN. On the return too, it will provide much needed connectivity between ERN & QLN after the departure of Venad Express. But you're absolutely right on its patronage between QLN & PUU!

Punalur Palakkad Express to run from March Next Week onwards Says Kudikunel Suresh MP. He claims that the Time Table committee during their yearly meeting at Kolkata has given the final nod for the same. He informed that the inauguration is planned via Video Conferencing by Mr.Suresh Prabhu the coming week and also is trying to get 2 additional sleeper coaches. I guess the rest would be Second Sitting coaches with AC Chair Car. Hopefully, there won't be any hurdles. Fingers crossed.

It is just a newspaper report quoting an MP. As per this report this train would depart from PUU at 03.25, QLN at 04.40, ERS/ERN 09.35 and arrive at PGT at 13.20, in the return direction, it would depart PGT at 16.00, arrive at ERS/ERN at 19.10, QLN at 23.55 to reach PUU at 01.20

Then nobody would take this train to travel to TCR/PGT from ERS/ERN, because 12678 , leaving ERS at 09.10, reaches PGT at 11.45.

Re# 2188044-16            Tags   Past Edits
True..but i believe this train would be a normal express having more unreserved sitting coaches with more stops rather than ERS SBC Intercity with more reserved sitting coaches and lesser stops. So, there should be decent patronage. Also more slack time might have been added for the PUU PGT Exp. Maybe it could reach much earlier.Also, not sure whether it would skip SRR or not.

Mar 03 2017 (11:56)   Aadhaar to put rail ticket touts out of business

Hareesh Mangalam*^~   1176 news posts
Entry# 2184392   News Entry# 295266         Tags   Past Edits
The Railways will soon move towards Aadhaar-based online ticketing system to prevent touts from blocking a bulk of tickets, end fraudulent bookings and curb cases of impersonation.
Aadhaar number has been made mandatory for senior citizens to avail concessions in train tickets from April 1.
A three-month trial run for this is going on. As per the new business plan 201718, unveiled by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu today, besides the Aadhaar-based ticketing system, the Railways will move towards cashless ticketing system by installing 6,000 point-of-sale machines and 1,000 automatic ticket vending machines across

the country.
An integrated ticketing app will also be launched by May to promote cashless transaction. “Aadhaar number will be required for one-time registration at the IRCTC ticketing site. The step is aimed at eliminating touts from registering with fake identities,“ an official said.

How agents book their ticket, especially in case of trains from kerala to mas for migrant workers is. They will book one genuine traveler, who will be their staff and other 5 will be some random name. And in train, genuine person will show ID card, while other 5 will random people to whom they sold ticket. Now with enforcement of adhar card, they cant randomly give name.
But again it is not a big thing. They will get 5 adhar card details and use it for random booking. How they are implementing, we will have to wait and see. If adhaar check happens during booking time, then it will big blow during tatkal booking time. Already IRCTC is very slow, now

if this check also happen. Then tatkal will become more hectic.

But what i understand from the news report is, a one-time validation of Aadhar number would be mandatory for each IRCTC account holders, at least for the time-being.
Since i can create as much IRCTC ids i want with different phone numbers/mail ids, i can use my friends/relatives/colleagues Aadhar number to validate the same too. In such a case, how would this become effective?
