TTEs are not seen on days except Fridays and Sundays. Hence, RAC quota allotment is difficult. Most of the passengers in this train disembark at Ernakulam.
Advice to passengers: Passengers with legitimate ticket may not be able to get into the train at KJM due to the heavy rush at KJM. Most of the people who embark from KJM are office goers who get down at BWT. Hence passengers with reserved tickets are advised to board from either SBC or BNC.

I had recently travelled between ERS and SBC..........not a single ticket checker turned up to check the tickets. The return journey was by YPR-KCVL Garib Rath express and even in that train, not a single TTE had come to check the tickets. There is no one to check these passengers .

I got the opportunity to chat with two squad members of TTEs (those not wearing the usual blazer of TTE but with ID card and badge) while travelling from KCVL to SBC in 16316. The chat was informative. They said that they were just present in the train to collect extra fares. They added that they were the only personnel deployed in the train. I also asked the reason for the same. They pointed out that there is acute shortage of TTEs by around 500 in Trivandrum Division alone. There are many issues concerning Indian Railways. It should be ensured that there are enough TTEs to verify whether the passengers are travelling with a valid ticket. Otherwise, it is a blow below the belt concerning revenue of IR. These factors, though petty it may seem, play an important role in the larger and continual development of IR.

Yes, you are correct. IR has not recruited TTE's after 2007 according to my friend who is TTE in Mayiladuthurai Jn. Earlier 2 SL coaches have been allotted to one TTE, now this has been increased to 3 coaches, it is really difficult to handle 3 coaches by a TTE, moreover all the flying squads are being removed slowly and they are being deputed to Trains as there are huge shortages in running trains. He said that 2013 & 2014 there are many TTE are getting retirements and shortage will increase more. If IR is not ready to appoint required no of TEE's. there will be huge revenue loss to IR, even though they are increasing the fare...

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
