Why southern railway is spoiling this train. It takes 4hrs 15mins between villupuram and tambaram whereas a passenger train which stops almost all stations taking only 3hrs. what is the reason behind such a negligence. 2hrs enough for 134kms or 2.30hrs max. Departure time at VM can be made at 5am and the train can reach tambaram at 7.30am. so that the train will be more useful and many people will utilise.

SR get confused with more priority and give less preference to the train which is meant for poor people. SR never considers that poor people who prefers to go by anthoydya and dictates its terms on this suppressed passenger / commuter. No one is listening to poor man's hue.

Yesterday Tirunelveli bound Anthodhaya Express was overflowing with crowd with passengers hanging by the doorsteps as per the Puthiyathalaimurai news video footage and even on Friday the situation was the same.

Good that this train serves such a huge volume of unreserved passengers and has already reached to the people gathering significant crowd even on normal days.

My friend who took this train for Madurai on a weekday last month and reported that at TBM UTS counter staffs are giving this option to the passengers seeking UR ticket with a recommendation that it goes fast till MDU and you can travel more comfortably. On that day the train got filled up in TBM itself with good crowd till TPJ.

He also travelled recently from VPT to TBM by this train and same was the scenario even in the UTS counter at VPT, there the suggestion is, it will go fast till VM and if you are in a no hurry to reach Chennai, you can take this train and travel comfortably, moreover, the train got filled up completely upon reaching MDU.

Hope the running time will be reduced for this train in the upcoming TT and can be made to run till NCJ with reduced turn around time at NCJ.

Sure, this train will be full and overflowing during the Pongal season. However, there seems to be some inmprovement in the ptrongage as days roll on.

Antyodaya seems to break into the Suvidha aims of S.Rly !!

OMG!! That was more overwhelming that I anticipated sir.

16 UR coaches would have definitely helped carrying huge crowd bound for various destinations, also would have brought this train to many people increasing the awareness.

Reduction of its running time in both directions would boost its patronage even better.
