The Railways has extended free WiFi facility for passengers and public accessing the Kumbakonam railway station. The facility, that was tested for about a week, was launched on Monday. The Railways had decided two years back to extend the facility to stations and junctions that were categorised as “A Grade’’ with a commendable revenue. As per that decision, the Thanjavur District Train Travellers’ Welfare Association had petitioned the Railways for the facility and reiterated their demand through the Mayiladuthurai MP R. K. Bharathi Mohan again some time back.
Every day around 38 trains pass through the Kumbakonam station that witnesses a footfall of at least 5,000 people daily.
“We

Trichy: Passengers from the Trichy railway division have appealed to the railway authorities to restart the Mayiladuthurai - Trichy - Mayiladuthurai express (Train No 16233/16234) which has been often cancellated between various sections for more than five months on this section on account of line block and maintenance works. Commuters alleged that despite good patronage for the train, railway authorities were purposely suspending the train in an attempt to cancel it completely.
Mayiladuthurai is on the main line section between Trichy and Villupuram. Three major A-grade stations Mayiladuthurai, Kumbakonam and Thanjavur lie on this section. Even with limited operation of trains, about 40,000 passengers use this section daily for their travel needs, commuters says.Quite often, this express has been cancelled between any

two destinations since the first week of April 2017, stating to facilitate engineering works, said A Giri, member of Divisional Rail Users Consultative Committee and vice-president of Thanjavur District Rail Users' Association.
Meanwhile, the Southern Railway has again announced cancellation of the train between Thanjavur - Trichy - Thanjavur from September 10 to 30, for a period of 21 days, he said.
"When the line block and maintenance works were a regular affair, why is it that the officials are disturbing only this section for a long time. For the last five months this has been the case. Because of this, commuters were put to great hardship. Hence, the services of this train may be operated up to Thiruverumbur, instead of cancelling at Thanjavur itself," he suggested.
