The biggest beneficiary of this electrified route which is about to complete i.e. Erode-Karur-Tiruchirapalli
1.Chennai Egmore- Managalore Mail.
2.Trichy-Palghat Town Passenger.
3.CBE-MV Jan Shatabdi. Electric loco only up to Trichy and Diesel thereafter.
Mail Electric Loco will be extended till Trichy.
But always remember that TSS should be ready for the trains to be given Eloco.
Trains going to Madurai will still have to wait till 2018 end because Erode-Karur-Trichy is only under complete wires while there is no enough progress between Karur- Dindigul.

Trains going towards Madurai will have to wait till the year end. At present the work between Erode-Karur-Trichy is only complete and the work between Karur-Dindigul is incomplete, but it is progressing good.
Similarly the work between Salem-Karur is in initial stage,foundation works is being done.

How can the trains going towards Dindigul, Madurai and Nagercoil Junction be benefited by the CRS between Erode-Karur- Trichy ?
Karur-Dindigul is separate route and is under electrification.
The work of electrification between Karur-Dindigul and Salem-Karur will gain momentum only after work between Erode-Karur-Trichy is 100% complete.
Routes which are under electrification in Tamil Nadu
Trichy-Thanjavur-Karaikal Port
2.Erode-Karur-Trichy and Salem-Karur-Dindigul
The routes for which tender is out (RVNL)
1. Villupuram-Cuddalore Port- Mayiladuturai-Thanjavur and Mayiladuturai- Thiruvarur
2. Omalur- Bayyappanahalli section
