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?

IRCTC can only forward the request to concerned zone. TDR approval will be done by the concerned zone, which may take 2 or 3 months, But here it was approved just in 6 days by SR

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

What was the reason for such a huge delay of 12696 which started on 21st july.
NTES shows that train was halted in Mavelikara for more than 1 hour. And late finally ended upto 4hr 20min when train reached MAS

I agree with you. SRR to Palakkad is about 46 km and almost all trains superfast and non superfast cover the distance in 30 minutes. This is probably the stretch in kerala that i have seen where trains blast their way through. Last week i travelled in 13352. It left SRR at 10:00 am and reached pgt at 10:30. In the return direction 12677 SBC-ERS intercity left palakkad at 2:25 pm and reached SRR byepass at about 2:50pm.

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."

55 km/h is the actual avg speed given to a Super Fast Class by the board.
-
When the TT is designed, irrespective halts, in one side, the avg speed might increase or decrease depending on the TT ahead of the other trains too.
Similarly, with less stops, irrespective to mps in the route, some trains have good avg speed end to end. Where as some trains do struggle after they are allotted with pile of mountain stops.
The TT avg speed changes w.r.t to the running time of a train on a track.
-

This train has many stoppages inside Kerala, in other words, even increase of stoppages do bother a train's TT n avg speed.
-
Even if a foreign based loco is given, there will b no effect on the running as long as the time table is the same.
