  5. Dear sir, when I visited in my native place at Thirunelveli dist near the village kodiyan kulam , the bus which I travelled horrible condition like seats torn off , broken roofs, noisy engine and total the bus was rattling contention and not fit for travel. i even tried to contact customer grievances phone no mentioned in the bus but it was of no use as no one responded to that call. I even checked with driver and conductor and was shocked to hear that this phone does not work and no one answers it. It is kept for name sake and they shared this information with utmost grief. Hence as a Citizen it is my duty to keep you informed about this anomoly and would request your immediate interention in this matter to set right the things in order so that passengers do not face this hardship in future. It is pathetic that if this situation continues it will severely impact senior citizens and pregnant ladies and even result in loss of their lives.
    It is shameful to have a telephone number which does not at all function and no one is seated to answer the calls.
    This is clear case of fooling the passengers and it a loss for our country and Hence, on behalf of passengers request you to set right things on war footing.

    • Hi Ravi, Buses to Arunachalam temple (Thiruvannamalai) is available from Vellore City Bus stand which is 2-3km from Katpadi. Katpadi and Vellore is linked by hundreds of buses and plenty of shared autorickshaws. (Available every 30secs). From vellore to Thiruvannamalai takes about 2:30hr. Usually every 1/2hr can get buses to Thiruvannamalai but after 9pm the frequency will be lesser. However there are bus services between vellore and Thiruvannamalai whole night. Some Buses come from Tirupati travelling thru Katpadi to vellore to Thiruvannamalai at rugular interval. So you dont have to worry about buses from Katpadi to Thiruvannamali there are plenty of buses available. And at festival time like full moon day you will get hundreds of special buses whole night for Girivalam purpose
