The Kanyakumari District Railway Users Association (KDRUA) has demanded extension of 22869/22870 and 22802/22801 running between Chennai Central and Visakhapatnam to Kanyakumari for the benefit of passengers from Kanyakumari and other districts in Tamil Nadu.
Reacting to the demand of the Andhra Pradesh Consortium of Malayalee Associations (ACMA) on extension of the 18567/18568 Visakhapatnam-Kollam Express, which appeared in this column on December 8, KDRUA secretary P. Edward Jeni noted that while there was a great demand for trains between Kanyakumari and Visakhapatnam as observed by ACMA, the KDRUA was opposed to
the extension of 18567/18568 weekly to Kanyakumari.
This was because it was a circuitous route and it would take more travel time and fare. There would also be the problem of getting reservation on this train. He sought extension of one of the Visakhapatnam – Chennai Central trains up to Kanyakumari.
Mr. Jeni noted that Chennai- Madurai - Kanniyakumari is a highly patronised and top revenue-generating Section of Southern Railway, with large volume of passengers, of the Southern Railway.
By extending any one Chennai - Visakhapatnam train, the people of Southern Part of Tamil Nadu (like Madurai, Tiruchchirappalli) have direct connectivity to Visakhapatnam apart from earning more revenue to the Railways.
KDRUA demanded an early action on the issue and inclusion in the forthcoming railway timetable.

probably KDRUA forgets that CBE TUP also earns much revenue as MDU TPJ.
if the demand is for VSKP then it no need to be routed via chennai. CAPE TEN MDU DG SA RU GDR BZA VSKP also should be fine. but i dont see KDRUA speaking of vskp need. i see they want another connection to chennai.
and i dono what basis ACMA asked till cape. if it terminated at KCVL or new terminal at nemom it will be well and good. regional politics once again.

Only demanding will not work now.
Indian Railways now have asked for Proofs from Demanding authorities regarding "actual expected patronage/demand" from individual region.
Here so first KDRUA and ACMA (Seriously India have association for everything) have to do Survey on their own regarding the ground demand of trains. If RB gets satisfied with the reports , then only further steps will be taken.
