Southern Railway has delivered, through its Parcel Cargo Express train, Cancer Medicine to the ailing mother of Shri. Vadivel , resident of a village near Chidambaram district of Tamilnadu. On 23-4-2020 a call was  received to SETU SR helpline from Shri. Vadivel enquiring if the medicines could be transported from Chennai to Chidambaram.

The issue was taken up by the officials manning the helpline and they got in touch with the Divisional authorities in Chennai and Trichy division. Since there was no direct train from Chennai to Chidambaram, the medicine was sent to Trichy by T.no.00657 (Chennai Egmore- Nagercoil)  and from Trichy , it was sent by the T.no:00658 Nagercoil – Chennai Egmore parcel train.

The  SETU SR  helpline members' coordinated with the divisional authorities in Trichy division to ensure that the  medicine reaches the patient at Chidambaram. The same was delivered on 24-4-2020 to a relative of Shri. Vadivel at Chidambaram by Station authorities.
