Bharathiyar Memorial Trust, Kovilpatti, has demanded that as a mark of respect to Tamil poet and freedom fighter Subramaniya Bharati the railway authorities should introduce an express train, in the name ‘Bharati Express,’ from Tuticorin to New Delhi via Ettayapuram and Kovilpatti.

Trust founder P. Muthu Murugan said here on Tuesday that the survey for a new railway line from Madurai to Tuticorin via Aruppukottai and Vilathikulam, which was under way, should be expedited.

A memorandum was submitted to Bharatiya Janata Party Rajya Sabha MP Tarun Vijay, seeking his intervention to introduce the facility at the earliest.

Mr Muthu Murugan said a lot of people from Tuticorin district were in New Delhi for business, education and employment. Moreover, several traders from New Delhi were coming to Ettayapuram to purchase safety matches from wholesale suppliers.

But, the people of Tuticorin had to go to Chennai to board a New Delhi-bound train. The only train (Tirukkural Express) plying between Kanyakumari and Nizamuddin once in a week was not sufficient to accommodate the passengers from Kanyakumari, Tirunelveli and Tuticorin. If the new train route and the express train were introduced, it would be a boon to the entire southern region, he said.

M. Piramanayagam, secretary, Tuticorin District Passengers’ Welfare Association, said they had demanded railway officials to introduce long-distance trains to New Delhi, Mumbai, Mangalore and Howrah from Tuticorin several times. Sampark Kranti Express from New Delhi to Madurai could be extended to Tuticorin. Similarly, the authorities could also explore the possibility of extending the weekly train service from Howrah to Tiruchi to Tuticorin, he added.

Why go till chennai and board when madurai is near . Sampark cannot be extended as having rake sharing with biweekly exp to chennai. Instead demand to extend Dehradun-madurai to tuticorin.

When already a route is available via maniyachi I dont think suresh prabhu will go with this project for next 5 years.
Instead IR will plan doubling of Cape - MADURAI.

Simply leave this Bangalore to Mysore. Create HSR from chennai to Bangalore..

If 1 km @ 200 crores for HSR, what about bullet train.... Some 500 crores. So 2500 Km = 12,50,000 crores. Between Delhi and Chennai.

Why everyone is asking for train extension from MDU or TPJ alone? Doesnt these 2 big cities dont deserve any starting train?

Kindly ask for new trains or ask for extension from chennai or bangalore or Tiruvandrum.

Mr Piramanayagam always asks for extension of well patronized trains. He never asked new trains as for as I know.
They will blame the division that they are not ready for new trains. Also they say that "we have asked for new trains but division is extending the existing trains".

God only knows the truth behind these extensions.

Two things.

1) Railways cannot give another train
2) A new train to kanyakumari, includes a new train to tirunelveli, Madurai, dindigul, trichy....

An extension avoids both.

Another,
1) The train doesn't gets full at starting point
2) at starting point also includes passengers from other southern districts

why not HSR between MAS-MDU or MAS-TVC?

All these routes will be profitable like the one expected between Chennai and mysore. Infact this will reduce the migration pressure on chennai also. This so called HSR between chennai and mysore was invented without even basic thought process by ex minister Mr. Gowda and we need arch rival china to give this report. Chinese would be laughing at us right now.

For good things to happen to TN railway system, SR should be divided along state lines and TN govt should have equal or majority stake in TN railways. Only then we will get emancipation from hindian govt controlled railways. In this age of climate change, the best solution is encouraging railways compared to roadways

Arun Sir,

It is not that every time every other city is asking for an extension from Trichy and Madurai. We agree that every city needs its own train and we are always happy to have a brand new train with all new coaches but our SR will never dream of giving one.

God only knows the truth behind these extensions.

Vignesh Sir,

What proof you have that Tuticorin Passenger Association secretary has been only asking for extension trains from Madurai. You can send me your mail id and I can send in all the mails that I have written via the Tuticorin Passenger Association for new trains. You can yourself go to Mr. AK Rastogi and ask how the idea of TNSK extension came into picture this year.

We are not only blaming the division which is highly ineffective to handle its trains and its pitlines but also the same situation with SR. Arent you aware that Tuticorin asked for the second overnight. Why would Madurai division kindle the idea of TNSK extension and make Sengottai, Rameshwaram, Tuticorin, Tirunelveli and Nagercoil scram for the same train. Why cant Madurai cater to the needs of every of these place with a dedicated train. None of these places rejected a new train and we will be more than be happy to have new trains.
I can still say that let Madurai give a 12 coach train to Tuticorin and 12 coach to Rameshwaram and let the Koodal coaches be restored to Madurai and Pallavan be restored to Trichy. Why was this need not taken even after we have given the idea to both Madurai division and Trichy division. Let the Divisional HQ also do some work; sitting idle is of no use. Nohaama nongu thinganumo.

God still knows the reality behind the extensions and if still Madurai division has the guts to deny it let them do. Please be informed if Madurai is so irritated with the demands for extension let them add Tuticorin to Trivandrum division.

Anthony Sir,

There is no need to write this explanation here as the railfans are clearly aware of the need. Each city will be frustrated if their trains are extended and the quota is shared. Lets not be the reason of someone else's curse. Whatever comes lets accept else a budget without a train is not new for Tuticorin.

Not in the intention of starting any fights or hot debates, but asking out of sure logical thinking

Will you give the same reason and accept if any Tuticorin originating trains are extended ???????????

Tuticorin trains cannot be extended until Tuticorin-Tiruchendur railway line is laid..

between it is impossible for south TN to have trains like

1. Madurai-Delhi separate train
2. Tirunelveli-Delhi separate train
3. Tuticorin-Delhi separate train
4. Tiruchendur-Delhi separate train
5. Sengottai-Delhi separate train
6. Nagercoil/KK-Delhi separate train..

this fits for Delta too.. i.e. Velankanni, Rameshwaram, Thanjavur, Mannargudi, Karaikal, Trichy cannot have separate long distance trains..

In western TN, this problem is not there because the bigger brother CBE sits in border, so any long distance train originates from there covers CBE, TUP, ED, SA cities/districts. IMO, extending long distance trains to a terminal which can cover good no. station is nothing wrong...

Chennai trains (non-prime train) should be extended to RMM, SCT, TN, NCJ destination.. but IR/SR pushes trains to Bangalore and Kerala..
