The railway connectivity between the two important Metro city, Chennai & Mumbai is continuously neglected in every railway budget. Though the trains connecting Mumbai with other two southern Metros (Bangalore & Hyderabad) are also running in the same route, there is no much development in this sector.
Around 50% of the railway route has ‘single’ line and < 25% is electrified. Due to this limitation, the running speed of the train in this route is less and the railways is unable to introduce additional trains in this route. The express / superfast trains are running with only an average speed of 50 -55 km/hr in this route.
is the reason for this neglected sector?
Do railways have any time bound plan for doubling and electrification of railway line Mumbai to Chennai / Bangalore and introduction of high speed trains in this route?

No plans I think, like every thing else in India, even this is 'Ram Bharose' time bound...God only knows or maybe even he doesn't know, when the connectivity between these places will improve

Recently, I booked a reservation ticket (SL class) from Thanjavur to Chennai in Uzhavan exp. with boarding at Kumbakonam (next station). But I boared at Thanjavur itself and travelled in the same train in SL class. I was objected by TTE and asked to pay fine for the journey from Thanjavur to Kumbakonam. I did't pay fine and argued that my ticket is valid from Thanjavur and I paid the cost.
Am I correct or not?

Re# 1228578-3            Tags   Past Edits
No, your argument is not valid, since you are surrendering your right to occupy the seat/berth by selecting a different station as boarding point, at the time of booking the ticket. So the Railways had the right to allot your seat/berth for any other passengers upto your boarding point and your right to use your seat/berth arises only from your boarding point.

If I cannot claim my berth, then can I travel by standing in the journey. Even that is not allowed, What is the advantage of booking a ticket from one location and boarding at next location? The option itself can be removed by Railway

No you are considered ticket less once you changed BP if try to travel in reserved coach from your booking point and liable for penalty as per rule....You need buy separate ticket or buy UR ticket and travel in Gen compartment.

in older times it was permitted on mutual understanding from TTE and passenger...nowadays its not permitted as when squad or some catches u , it becomes ticketless journey till the specified BP..i used to book from aluva to Tanjore and some times board at ERS itself...but with mutual understanding with TTE's as they know me as i am regular in that train..but anyway its against the law but permitted on frndly grounds..:)

It helps people to avail GNWL quota by paying the extra fare when seats are not avl from an intermediate location. Of course you can argue by saying that those seats are meant for end to end pax, but its a personal opinion.
