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 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...

From my experience, I found the sleeper class in this train very comfortable. I found myself sitting next to a large and fun family. It was fun meeting them. And I did not find the train overcrowded. (December 2022).

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
