Please extend this train towards Mangaluru, and remove the stops at Divine Nagar, Cheriyanad and Mayyanad.

That's not possible.
For that 1 more rake should be there. With a single rake its not posibble.

If the train is extended to kannur rake sharing is possible with 16305,06,07,08,13,14.
If it is extended to manglore rake sharing with parasuram express can be a better option.

Agreed but it definitely needs speeding up so that the rake returns back to its base station i.e. TVC.
One way could be to eliminate rake reversal at ERS. As it halts at ERN, ERS halt could be removed...

TVC to CLT is good suggestion,but it should been provided more reserved coaches including CC too.
Speeding up also should be done. Otherwise the journey will like a hell.

welcome move. Adding an additional rake (as it cannot return to TVC with same timings), a new Calicut-Alleppy/Kottayam/Ernakulam Intercity can be planned (Coimbator-Mangalore is there in the morning, so ERA/ALLP-CLT would be a good choice and would help in reducing some load from Venad and Parasu)

Is it possible to penalize a passenger boarding a reserved 2S coach in an Express train(say an Intercity Express), with an unreserved II class ticket (applicable to the same train for travel in Unreserved coach)?
If yes, what is the maximum amount that can be realized as fine?
Though the difference in fare was just the reservation charge, saw a TTE warning such passengers with fine upto Rs. 300/-. Hence just curious to know if such a fine is possible.

I travel in janmabhoomi exp Vskp SC in general sitting coaches reserved. Lot of unreserved travellers board the reserved coaches and all the corridors are filled. TTE checks the tickets and if someone is seated in reserved coach he collects rs 15 as reservation fee and gives an receipt and doesn't Ccollect any amount from standing travllers . Never saw TTE asking or warning fine of rs 300. I think its possible to collect as unreserved cannot travel in reserve coaches and are liable to be penalize fine.

Although it is a punishable offence, TTEs leave them as long as they don't occupy the seats. It is a common sight in daily ICEs of SCR like Janmabhoomi exp, Satavahana, Pinakini and Ratnachal.

In SBC-ERS Intercity express, there are lots of passengers who board from CBE, PGT bound towards ERS. Many a time the TTE hardly comes to check, but there have been few occasions wherein he has come to check and has taken additional reservation charge (Rs 25/Rs 30) and has also issued receipt for the same.
The amount being relatively small, passengers do end up paying
