Mostly SR operates Airfares Suvitha specials within Tamilnadu and Kerala which is dominated by the communist.But Kerala communists are nowadays ,do not take any care for the Kerala railway passengers .Kerala state government till date not summoned the Railway Divisional officials and insists to operate ordinary special trains instead of the huge Airfares Suvitha train operation.
Even Ayyappan Devotties also compelled to pay higher Airfares Suvitha specials.
But our neighborhood SCR ,Secandrabad mostly operates ordinary specials within Telengana and Andhra Pradesh.
