MEMU train service to start from March 15 in state, further wait for season tickets

memu

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: MEMU train services in the state will start on March 15th. But the main requirement for regular railway passengers to get season tickets and unreserved ticket travel on express trains may have to wait a little longer. Prior approval of the Election Commission is required to implement as the election code of conduct is in effect.

Before the code of conduct came into force, the Railways had ordered the resumption of ten MEMU services in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. The resumption of further services will require the permission of the Election Commission or a special order allowing the services to be expanded to cater to the needs of the passengers. Season tickets may be issued as part of this.

Eight passenger and memus services have been sanctioned in the state. Services via Kottayam and services from Kollam to Thiruvananthapuram are not permitted. The services will start from Ernakulam to Shornur, from Shornur to Kannur and from Ernakulam to Kollam via Alappuzha.

There will be no reservation in the memo but express fee will be charged. Tickets can be purchased at the station counters. Except Ernakulam-Shornur, MEMU services will not be available on Sundays. MEMU will have 8 coaches once a week. There will be 12 coaches for the rest of the day. Memu services will not have a temporary stop at halt stations when they resume. The Kollam-Alappuzha-Kollam memo will not stop at Monrothuruthu, Karuvatta, Thakazhi and Punnapra stations. The Alappuzha-Ernakulam-Alappuzha memo will not stop at Thumpoli, Kalavoor, Thiruvizha, Vayalar, Ezhupunna and Aroor halts and the Ernakulam-Shornur-Ernakulam memo will not stop at Chovara, Koratti Angadi, Divine Nagar, Nellai and Mullurkara. There will be no stops at Iringal, Nadapuram Road, Mukkali and Dharmadam.
