One of my most tensed journey happened last night in Tamilnadu express....
My brother has one confirm ticket but I don't have reserved ticket so that we decided to check with TTE reached MAS at 21:15.. well before 45 mins of departure..I thought 45mins would be enough to take general we walked to the moore market complex where general tickets for mail/exp being comes the twist there are only three counters working and huge ques formed in front of I decided to stand in que and the clerk who is giving tickets in general tickets is as slow as tortoise but the time hasn't it hits 21:45 and the que hasn't moved an hopes on getting ticket has
been decreased so we ran towards current reservation counter to see is there any availability in trains 13352 22646 12840 but the clerk said no seats available on either of the trains...returned back to general counter and we have lost all hopes on getting ticket clock hits 22:02 one telugu guy came to us and he asked in telugu(as we are speaking telugu) do u want vijayawada ticket.? I said yes bro I want it...took the ticket..clock showing 22:05 and as far as I know SR gives 99%dot on time starter to TN so I have very less we ran towards PF4 reached there at comes the mighty TN which is still waiting for you know y it hasn't got on time starter..The empty rake of 12657 MAS-SBC MAIL rake is being shunting on to PF5 so that TN had to wait how lucky we are...and departed MAS at 22:10 had parallel run with 12673 cheran till BBQ...tension ends...

My advice to SR please increase number of general ticket counters at MAS how come only 3 counters sufficient to clear huge rush at station like MAS..? no ATVM's too...condition at MS worse than this..2 counters i think...look at SC so many counters as well as ATVM's works..nthng to tell separate about BZA as it is the only station in IR which has booking counters in all entrance gates...

Its not so easy to get General ticket at MAS. I used to go to Nungabakkam in local train and get ticket from there. Its easy and confirm ticket you will get in that way as you can come back to Park in 30 mins.
