For those who plan to buy unreserved ticket at MS please be at ticket counter atleast half an hour before especially on Peak times, due to heavy rush at counters
If you are coming from Suburban stations and If it is Computerized counter, better get Express/Superfast tickets from there. It is Best alternate to get ticket without hassle of queue..
