Kochi: The much anticipated train from Kochuveli to Bengaluru and Mysuru is on track to start service from mid-January, Kodikkunnil Suresh MP has said. He said that the decision was taken after a meeting with the railway board officers to clear the air about the delays in starting the service that was announced several years ago.
The train is scheduled to start from Mysuru on Friday evenings and reach Kochuveli on Saturday. It would leave Kochuveli on Sunday evening on its return trip and reach Bengaluru at 9 am on Monday on its way to Mysuru. Kodikkunnil said that he would lobby to run the train daily as demanded by the passengers.
MP said that there were not enough trains between Bengaluru and destinations in Kerala because of an unholy nexus between railway officers and private bus operators. A lack of enough trains has forced hundreds of Keralites working in Bengaluru to rely on private buses which charge them a bomb for rush-hour tickets.
The railway board has instructed the zonal railway manager and officers concerned to allocate the coaches and loco to start the Kochuveli-Mysuru train, Kodikkunnil said. He also urged for an investigation into the circumstances that led to the mysterious delay in launching the service that was announced in the railway budget years ago.
He held talks with railway board adviser Rajeev Saxena and executive director Mandeep Singh Bhatia.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
