If so, see how many trains run via Arakkonam North from Katpadi to Renigunta, why SCR didn't allow via TPTY ? SR path is occupied unnecessarily. They should get the reality scenario from the officials.

No, for simple reasons that Zone's are not run by locals of the region, so they don't have their personal interest or regional bias at stake. Co-ordination between zone's are always there in day to day operation, there are multitude of examples of sharing, example Loco from RPM, ED operating for SWR trains etc.
Most of the time every one of us are self centered (our own bias, first its state level, then it drills down to district and town, for example a coimbatore, madurai guy will say chennai is preferred over them) and want a overnight train from our favorite pair of location, without thinking about whether the same is operationally possible with current resource and without disturbing the
existing train timing symphony. also to some extend traffic density also comes into picture when they decide on new routes.

They still haven't doubled Katpadi to renigunta inspire of having so many trains. Just look at the state of southern AP stations which fall under southern railways and compare it with mainland Tamil Nadu stations.

Yes bro! you have very rightly pointed out about the Kota JS! and thanks for the same!!
I just gave clarification to the superlative statements appearing about RIG JS which may appear a bit exaggerated.
My Post was just a highlight of special significance/sentiments, of RIG JS for CG people.
After all knowing the sentiments/ thoughts/ experience of esteemed IRI members, the
Railway enthusiasts from every nook and corner of India along with the IR news/ information is the USP of IRI, which makes it different from plain IR news reading in news papers/ other sources. We should not hesitate to speak our minds and enrich our IRI brethren. Even if any slip-of-tongue occurs, it should not be an issue amongst us. Blogging in such a free and entertaining environment is always a combo of enrichment+pleasure.

Heard 22627/68 TPJ - TEN Intercity SF Express is going to get extended to TVC shortly, in RSA with 16341/42 GUV - TVC - GUV Intercity Express. So daytime connectivity from GUV to TPJ and back is in the offing.
In the bargain, CD/TVC smartly hands over PM of one more rake to CD/TPJ!!

Thiruvananthapuram First To Introduce Portable Ramps For Differently-Abled People To Climb Into The Train:
Moved by the harrowing experience of Virali Modi, while using the services of the Indian Railways, Central Railway Station of Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala has come up with an innovative idea that will surely bring a smile on the faces of physically challenged people.
Central Railway Station of Thiruvananthapuram has
become the first station in the country to introduce a wheelchair facility and ramp for the physically challenged people based on an official order from Southern Railways.
Virali Modi has been a paraplegic since she was 14 years old. She issued a petition of making railways differently-abled friendly. She said that she had been groped and manhandled three separate times by porters when they were helping her board the train as the Indian trains are not accessible to wheelchairs. Her petition has gathered a support of nearly 10,00,000 people, and this was brought to notice of Southern Railways by a former Divisional Railway Manager Sunil Bajpai.
The Southern Railways were very prompt to work out a solution to provide a dignified access to the less privileged.
An official letter was released on February 20 by Chief Commercial Manager Ajeet Saxena to procure portable ramps and foldable wheelchair to be put to use from 1 March.
The normal width of a wheelchair is 24 inches, but the railways are providing two foldable wheelchairs of which one has a width of 22 inches, and other has 17 inches.
The Southern Railways also has ensured the presence of lady staff to oversee the assistance of the porters. The facility cost Rs 65 and can be used making a prior request.
