Indian Railways may resume all train services by March-end

Indian Railways may resume normal services of all its local, express, and mail trains by March-end. As reported by the TOI, the officials of the railway ministry are in discussion with the states in the National Capital Region (NCR) about restarting the operations of all passenger trains.

Reportedly, currently, about 65 percent of all mail and express trains are in service. Railway board CEO and chairman Suneet Sharma told TOI that every month, the railways are adding 150 trains and presently, 1130 trains in number are running beside the suburban train services throughout various zones.

Resumption of running local trains in the NCR will ease out daily travel issues of passengers from Mathura, Aligarh, Palwal, Rewari, and Ghaziabad.

Prior to the outbreak of COVID in India, about 100 such local trains were running between Delhi and the neighboring destinations. However, the officials of Indian Railways are now ready to resume the train services with due safety and health precautions.

The call to resume passenger trains includes even Shatabdi and Rajdhani trains. Meanwhile, Tejas Express has replaced the Vande Bharat Express train on the New Delhi – Varanasi rail route from February 15, 2021, for 45 days.
