TRICHY: The Thiruverumbur railway station in the city may have been upgraded to Adarsh status with a number of amenities, but if passengers coming to the station have to relieve themselves, they may either have to board a train or wait for the waiting rooms to open. Despite a number of representations made by commuters and welfare associations to railway authorities as well as elected representatives, the station still lacks proper toilet facility.Tiruverambur is a major railway station in the Trichy railway division utilized by a large number of office-goers and industrial workers employed in BHEL, OFT, HAPP and its ancillary industries, industrial units at industrial estate and other small-scale units in Ariyamangalam. Students of educational institutions like NIT-Trichy, IIM, BIM, Government Food Craft Institute and Government Arts and Science College located in and around Thiruverumbur are also among the passengers.A renovation work at the station commenced during 2013 and the...
new facility was thrown open to the public in November 2017. However, while almost “all facilities” were established, passengers were still left to fend for themselves as public toilet facility was absent in all the four platforms, points out the president of Tamil Nadu People Development Committee, N Anbazhagan. “This apart, out of 50 trains passing through Thiruverumbur station (in both directions), 26 are express trains. Among these, except Mayiladuthurai – Mysore, none of the others stop at Thiruverumbur. This forces passengers in and around Tiruverumber to travel 14.3 km to reach Trichy railway junction to catch a train”, he said.Earlier, two express trains used to stop at the station. However, after the upgradation process, the number of express trains that stopped at the station had shrunk to one, he alleged. Passengers also complained that since only one RPF personnel was being posted at the station, there was no safety and security for passengers’ belongings as well as for railway properties.A senior official from Trichy railway division said that at present two toilets – one each for ladies and gents — were there available inside the second class passengers’ waiting room.

    @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...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info. We had put in MANY, many years of PAINSTAKING effort to develop the PNR Prediction infrastructure, and our Sr. Legendary Members have helped countless people...

    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...
