New railway timetable disappoints passengers

MADURAI: The newly-released railway timetable that came into effect on October 1 has very less to offer to the rail users in the city. 

There was lot of expectation among rail users as union railway minister Suresh Prabhu had told the budget will concentrate on infrastructure and announcement on new trains will take back seat. 

Rail users' forum was active in predicting possible new trains, extension and changes in train timings. 

But, there have only been changes in number of few trains and minor changes in schedule of passenger trains. 

"This is the second consecutive year of Kanyakumari district not getting any new trains. Every railway budget had brought us some new trains or extensions in the past," P Edward Jeni, Secretary of Kanyakumari District Rail Users Association said.
