Bengaluru has room for trains to everywhere but Kerala
Kochi: The Bengaluru Railway Division has put on the back burner a proposed train service to Thiruvananthapuram citing a lack of space at the stations, yet 35 trains have been rolled out to other destinations in the last three years.
A train between Bengaluru and Thiruvananthapuram was announced in the railway budget of 2014 but the service was never started. The railway honchos in Bengaluru shifted the originating station twice, saying that they were unable to fit in a new train to the
already crowded stations.
The other trains announced in 2014 have already started service, revealing the authorities' apathetic attitude towards Kerala. The Yesvantpur-Howrah A/C Express started service in January 2016, while the Yesvantpur-Katra Suvidha Express and the Yesvantpur-Jaipur trains started service in January 2015.
The South Western Railway and the Bengaluru division have started 25 express trains and 10 passengers trains between 2014 and 2017. Three of them are daily services. A Bengaluru-Visakhapatnam special train has been running for two years at the time schedule fixed for the train to Thiruvananthapuram.
The authorities who swear by a space crunch in Bengaluru started a service as late as last month. The new train from Kacheguda in Hyderabad reaches Krishnarajapuram in Bengaluru every Monday morning.
Regular passengers to Kerala suspect that the delaying tactics is a bid to help the private bus lobby to fleece the travelers to Kerala.
Here is the list of trains that began service from Bengaluru since 2014:

NCJ -SBC mostly reaches SBC by 9.30 am., thats the main reason people choose last choice as this train. Most of the working people wants to reach SBC early. so private Bus Mafia earn much in NCJ/TEN-SBC route.
i understand its not possible to make all the trains to reach SBC at early morning. but railway authorities to ensure it reach on time

But current availability is differing. It shows available numerous times
9.30 AM to SBC should not be a problem since it reaches Hosur in convenient time and people can reach Electronic city very easily from HSRA.
Only for people who work in Bagmane , Manyata will find it difficult to reach
