You are right.With the existing timings frequency increase of SHM-TVC is not possible due to sharing slots with numerous trains. This is what what was the response i got when raised issue in pg portal. Moreover the reply also said increasing frequency etc is purely based on demand (it appeared from the answer that the railway still feels that this sector does not have that much rush !!!)

Grievance Description : Subject-Increasing frequency and adding additional general compartments on train No 16323/16324 and 12659/12660 Shalimar Trivandrum and Shalimar Nagercoil pairs of trains. Over the last few years the passenger traffic from kolkata,orissa to kerala has increased by huge numbers. As of now only two trains are there that originate from Kolkata (shalimar) and travel up till Trivandrum. Despite these trains being started more than 10 years ago, there has been no change in frequency and instead trains have been introduced to other stations in their time slots on non-operational days. Thus in the current time schedule their frequency cannot be increased. It is requested to consider changing their times and increase the frequency so that the rush in the kerala-kolkata route is spread across different days.
Current Status : CASE CLOSED
Date of Action : 11 Nov 2013
Details : Increase in frequency of trains is a matter of policy decided by Ministry of Railways. At present T.No 16324 Shalimar - Thiruvananthapuram Bi-Weekly Express shares common path with T.No 16310 Patna -Ernakulam (BW) Exp and T.No 15228 Muzafarpur-Yesvantpur (W) Exp Ex Gudur to Jolarpettai / Ernakulam. T.No 16323 Thiruvananthapuram - Shalimar Bi-Weekly Express (Ex TVC:Thu Sat) shares common path with T.No 12507 Ernakulam –Guwahati (W) Exp. In addition this train shares common path with T.No 15227 Yesvantpur-Muzafarpur(W) Exp , T.No 15901 Yesvantpur-Dibrugarh Town (W) Exp Ex Katpadi to Gudur via Chennai Central. Further augmentation will be done based on the demand.

Because of large number of keralites settled in delhi,mumbai,chennai,bangalore, the pressure is always there from various associations. The number of keralites in eastern part of the country is relatively smaller in number and thus i feel the lesser pressure exerted or not having much say.Majority of travelers nowadays from east to and south to east are migrant workers who hardly in any case might not know too much of these things i.e demanding newer trains, increasing frequency etc

I agree....if regularised it would be a good connectivity starting from kolkata till kerala. As of now there are only 3 trains on the following days: Tue,Wed,Thursday and Sunday.If this starts as regular train on Saturday it would be really good and we would have trains starting from shalimar/src till various points in kerala 5 days a week

I think still early stages......not much rush as can be seen below. Good train though. Rare to see a special train covering such a long distance and with 36 stops travelling at avg 60 km/hr. This sector is highly patronised by migrant workers and am sure many of them may not be awre of the same.

blind n simple formula since its not showing today in ir site for 02852 then booking is also not shown tmrw,
example if your checkning in on 18th sep for 0ct 8th spl train u find its showing/display 02852 in ir site but bookings not allowed then 19th sep bookings will start at 8am
