The Indian Railways will gradually resume passenger train operations from tomorrow. This comes as India inches towards the end of the third phase of nationwide lockdown to fight against COVID-19. To mitigate the spread of the novel corona virus, the Central government announced a pan India lockdown in the last week of March. All passenger train services have been on halt since March 22. Starting from Tuesday, the Railways plans to run 15 pair of trains each day.
These trains will run as a special train from New Delhi station Dibrugarh, Delhi to Agartala, Delhi to Howrah, Delhi to Patna, Delhi to Bilaspur, Delhi to Ranchi, Delhi to Bhubaneshwar, Delhi to Secunderabad, Delhi to Bengaluru, Delhi to Chennai, Delhi to Thiruvananthapuram, Delhi to Madgaon, Delhi to Mumbai Central, Delhi to Ahmedabad and from Delhi to Jammu Tawi. The trains will have only a few stoppages, the official said.
The trains scheduled to start this week will be air-conditioned. The fares will be similar to Rajdhani Express fares, a railway ministry official said.
