Horrible experience:
2 days before we travelled in this train from MAS to TCR, 4 tickets booked in AC 3 tier and 3 tickets booked in SL.
i am one of the rail fan, so like to travel in SL to capture picture and details of other train.
MAS itself 10 boys (their age may between 17 to 20)- all from WB/Orissa/Bihar.. they asked in hindi to me whether this train go to Kerala.. i said yes and asked in Kerala where you want to go.. but they cant answer..
once the train started i came to know they have openless ticket. from the beginning they sit near by door, after the train crossed
...
Read more...
they sit in side upper seats.. after the train crossed KPD , they move here and there, shouting, spitting even inside the train, jumping the side upper to upper berths.
Most of the passengers feel very bad.. even myself and my friend told them , dont shout.. i dont know whether they cant understand or dont want to hear..
till CBE their behaviour continues..once the train reached Palakkad around 12.20 am. One old man get down at palakkad (his destination) and complain the police who is in the platform, but the train slowly started its way.
Now the TTE who took incharge from PKD , came to our coach, spoke to those buys softly, they simply lay in the berths, again he shouted them in Hindi. he said clearly they need to get down at next station..
once the train reached TCR by 1.50 a.m , they all get down , again shouting in the platform towards the TTE
Guys please dont mistake , about i mention their states.. in public behaviour is important...they should understand..
also i feel very bad none of the TTE till PKD not asked or warn them ...
The TTE who took incharge from PKD , done his job. thank him

RPF came only after ED, that also for the name sake they came once, while RPF came these guys spilt and went to toilets, some boys act like sleeping in Upper berths.
There is no strict patrol inside the trains..
the worst thing is they spoiled the washbasins (putting papers an, some unwanted stuffs in the basins).. so water gets stagnated..
while the train starts the s11 coach was very clean and good . while i got down at TCR, very sad to say, its like a corporation dustbin....
i think about the cleaning and maintenance workers, how they will suffer to clean this, because they are also humans...

Thats what I hate about this country lack of discipline there are some people who once are in a group of friends think of themselves as lords who can do whatever they wish to do.
The cleaning staff as you said would have a tough time now due to these fellas but IR doesn't care about them much that's why the RPF took them lightly. But good that the TTE finally got them out.

Usually anyone if not in their comfort zone never acts like the way you described here.
Residents of all these three states have different body language and their accent is also very different.
Surprisingly you forgot to mention Jharkhand.

hi i am not sure , whether they belongs to which state, while they talking about they had mentioned Midnapore, balasore and some parts of orissa. so i came to understand they may came from WB, Orissa...
but these kind of misbehave needs to stop at any cost, atleast as a passenger we need to escalate with the relevant authorities.. but here the worst is RPF itself not done their job ...

I am a traveller of mostly NF Rail, Eastern Rail and SE Rail. This is for the first time I got into a SR train when I travelled from MAS to KPD by Sleeper Class. The train is maintained very well and it is clean. I wish other zones also learn to do the same. The speed and pickup I felt were also very high.

Rakes are maintained by CD/BBQ & hence train has comparatively better coaches. Incidentally both MAS - ALLP SF & MAS - TVC SF Mail too maintained by the same CD.

Even I have checked through IRCTC
Indian Railways website showing “Train Suspended: DBA Administrator” as a search result of availability and fare for this train. What does it mean?
Even I have checked through IRCTC. It is showing internal error for booking the tickets for this train. I will be travelling on 16th Oct from TVC. What can I do now?

8. 12076/12075 -Trivandrum-Kozhikode JanShatabdi Express [Only on SUNDAY’s]
9. 16302/16301 – Trivandrum – Shournur Venad Express [Only on SUNDAY’s]

The first train [Intercity Express] is the main and only train for daily and weekly commuters between Trivandrum and Ernakulam Via Alappuzha.
The second train [Mumbai Express] would really helpful for daily commuters to technopark from southern part of Thiruvananthapuram and Kanyakumari districts.
The third train [Maveli Express] would help the employees weekly commuting to northern part of Kerala
The Trains listed from 4 to 7 are connecting to main IT cities and it would be helpful for employees working here from other states of India. Now all Bangalore and Chennai buses are operating from Kazhakooottam only because of huge number of passengers to these cities.
We listed JanShatabdi Express and Venad only for SUNDAY’s as a huge number of employees are travelling back to Kazhakooottam after weekend in these trains.
Also we request your kind attention in providing a reservation counter in Technopark and amnesties such as refresh rooms and vendor stalls in the station.
We once again thank you and railways for helping us live a better life."

No refund is granted by IRCTC unless it gets refund from railways for that PNR. And for railways, it's the zone which deals with that and sends refund instructions to irctc
