If used appropriately in proper route they will yield better revenue. In this case Covai - Pollachi - Palani is a hot route which always runs full and many times there are acute shortage of buses ( Sri Lakshmi also got its route extended from Palani - Pollachi to Palani - Covai few years back).
Ashely2,
SST(SivaSelvi) got the route extension. Initially it was Pollachi-Palani and now it is running in Coimbatore-Pollachi-Palani route. Recently they have also purchased RBS's(RRR) Pollachi-Palani route too. Sri Lakshmi still running as Pollachi-Palani service only and there was no route extension to this bus.

Also 210" Viking can't take 57 seater!
We also have 52+2 seaters and 60+2 seaters from TNSTC-Coimbatore in the viking chassis. 60+2 seaters are running in Coimbatore-Palani(Ex: TN38 N 1794) and Coimbatore-Palakkad route. The latest additions to Coimbatore-Palakkad route are 60 seaters. New Palani-Palakkad(TN38 N 2567) is a 52+2 seater.

This is the first 12M 3X2 AC bus in TN which is running as a stage carrier. Operated in Salem-Karur and it is a Veera built guy. Sorry for the poor image. Taken in 2009 when this was in Salem BS. That time i never knew that this was a 12M bus.

Came to know that the below bus from Kalaimaghal which is running in Coimbatore-Palani route is also 3X2 seater with 12M chassis having 68 seats. This could be the first Non AC 12M 3X2 seater in TN.

AFAIK, There was a 12m TML during the period 2008/09 in Coimbatore - Mettupalayam route and the operator was Vijay Chakravarthy. Though at present they have AL 222.

Recent 12m addition in the city bus segment in Coimbatore is by Vee Vee for their S16 route. It's an TML 1613.

2. Kallada Travels Volvo B9R Semi Sleeper 01:30 PM Rs. 1,600
3. Kesineni Travels Volvo B9R Semi Sleeper 01:45 PM Rs. 1,600
4. K.P.N Travels Volvo B9R Semi Sleeper 02:00 PM Rs. 1,610

What route do they take from Salem till Anantpur? Do they touch BGLR?
TVM HYD has only Kesineni Travels Volvo B9R Semi Sleeper 01:00 PM Rs. 1,800

The bus in the fifth picture looks different as the Destination board is center aligned while at all other places it is aligned towards right.

Tippu Sultan was a long time Chennai Trivandrum operator. They had one pair of non AC buses running for many years way back from the Mid 1990s. At that time RathiMeena was the major operator.

Also interestign to see the Kallada Kochi Hyderabad operation with Jabbar badging. Is Jabbar giving the local support?? Jabbar is a long time operator in the south although they dont have a great reputation. On simil;ar lines didnt Kallada have a service on BLR BOM a few years ago??? What happened to it???

KPN is now making a reentry to HYD. They had BLR HYD and MAA HYD services a few years back but pulled out soon.
