Great Disagree:Not feasible
This train should be made to run with LHB rake with RSA to Narayanadri SF express.

Train should leave TVC at 06:30 AM to arrive Lingampalli at 10:00 AM -- can leave as Narayanadri at evening at 17:00 PM to arrive at Tirupati around 05:00 AM and PM the whole day and the return train will leave TPTY around 18:00 PM to arrive Lingampalli at 06:00 AM to leave Lingampalli as Sabari express around 13:00 PM to arrive TVC at 16:30 PM with SC at TVC

Train and rake should be handled by SCR TPTY div.

TVC departure at 0630 means conflict with Venad, Parasuram, Raptisagar, that whole slot is just jam packed with fast passenger like trains. Instead of aiming for SF, SC should just extend it to NED via MUE - NZB or BIDAR via VKB. Basically, a station with PM facilities or just continue RSA arrangements with 4 dedicated rakes for this train. At this point, I don't see SR budging even a bit. If only trains ran faster in Kerala without being fast passengers, we wouldn't have had this issue. Best bet would be an evening departure from TVC for faster schedule in Kerala or departing behind Kerala SF. Even then, there is a risk of getting caught up in the huge line up of Night time SF that will simply overtake Sabari, and PM at SC will become an issue, rescheduling, many know how that is going to work out.

Re# 6078223-31              
A year back there was a proposal for rake sharing of Nethravathi & Matsyagandha which meant that the Nethravathji towards Mumnbai would have had to leave TVC early. As a result of its preponement, there was also a proposal to make Sabari exp leave early as compared to its current time so that PF is available in TVC. There was also a talk about making
Sabari leave from KCVL instead of TVC. The dep time was almost the same time as what you have suggested here. But I guess none of them have materialized till date. Nethravathi rake sharing with Matsyagandha is on cards. Maybe once that happens cascading effect might probably see Sabari leave TVC slightly earlier

Re# 6078223-32              
Its going to change to 06:30 AM time anyway - Netravati and Madsyagandha are going to have RSA and Netra's time is going to change around 07:00 AM or 07:30 AM from TVC - Not sure about the date when , so in the source it said Sabari is going to be advanced by 15 mins which will make it leave around 06:30 AM from TVC. So this plan that I gave is anyway going to happen cause of the RSA proposed.

Re# 6078223-33              
Correct, I think the RSA is going to happen soon for Netra and Matsya and Sabari will be advanced anyway. They mentioned in article Sabari will be advanced by 15 mins, I assume if they do that it's better to make it SF and take PM and run as dedicated train or run as SCR train with Narayanadri RSA with speed up in timing.

One more possibility : Extend Sabari to NCJ. Introduce a new train NCJ SC via MDU SA KJM DMM GTL.
TT can be somewhat like this:
1st rake:
SC 1220 TVC 1630 NCJ 1830
2000 MDU 2345 SA 0400 KJM 0815 SC 1830.
2nd rake:
SC 0630 KJM 1630 SA 2230 MDU 0230 NCJ 0630.
NCJ 0800 TVC 1000 ERN 1400 CBE 1745 SA 2000 TPTY 0100 SC 1230.
Just 2 more rakes are required for running a new daily train via Tamilnadu and Karnataka.
