Four Passengers travelling in Island express next week. There is some uncertainty that one of the passengers might not travel. In such event if that passenger does not board the train Can I tell the TTE and collect cash or What else I can do?

Its not like that!!
The traveler will have to cancel one passenger from the list, prior to chart preparation or will remark TTE about the passenger not travelling (which TTE will mark as non-travelling) and then traveler can claim TDR (reasoning Non-Travel for the same)!!

if that passenger does not board the train ................the cancellation period must have timed out .....hence no chances of cancellation ............

Try to cancel the ticket, if possible 24 hours before schedule departure at the boarding point. You will get maximum refund. Else cancel at least 4 hour before the departure time. You will loss only 25% of the fare. Otherwise cancel the ticket before chart preparation. In all the above methods, you will get the refund immediately. If all the above opportunities are missed, you have to resort to TDR - Ticket Deposit Receipt route. Refund will be delayed about one month to three months.
Make sure to get an endorsement on the ticket from the TTE with the details of the person not travelled.

Try to read between lines!!
When i meantioned cancel one passenger before chart preparation, that clearly indicates, by then the traveler is aware, as who isnt gonna travel!!
If chart been prepared, then the TDR options comes in place!!
BTW, while reading my lines, i find it can confuse to some1, not accustomed to IR rules!!

Is it boring to go to kanyakumari in this train ? Because train moves slower/ too many stops in the day. Train is full in the begining will it run less crowded after Ernakulam ?

Your query leaves my mind labouring under a false delusion.Your query has a tinge of Ambiguity to it.WILL Crowds get BETTER ? :)
AFAIK, The train crawls along at a leisurely pace with no sense of punctuality whatsoever.

I am sorry my question is not clear. The question is two frequent travellers in this train have given two different opinions. 1. Short distance travellers get into reserved sl & ac compartments and create discomfort to long distace travellers ie, travellers travelling to kanykumari. 2. As the train crosses ernakulam there will less passengers in sl & ac so you can enjoy the privacy+scenary slowness of train wont bother you. Which one of the two opinions is correct ?. I am travelling to kanyakumari for first time. some one told sbc-cape nagarcoil express via madurai is better option. Do frequent travellers like you agree?

Err...Yes.As you are newbie, you will enjoy the greenery flying, or rather, crawling past you :) I have not travelled much in this train.But I have commuted on the TVC-ERS sector umpteen times and I doze off on the way.FAMILIARITY BREEDS CONTEMPT.
I do not fully agree with the fact that the train is 'empty' after ERS.In fact, the throng might get worse with all the TVC guys going back to their houses.As in all trains, the unreserved people will make their presence felt and add to the crowd.As the TTE is lax, you will have to bear with it.
