Indian Railways to Operate 100 more trains soonly

Vastavam web: An announcement of running about 100 more trains may be made by Indian Railways soon. Railways are preparing for the festive season. Currently, Railways only runs 230 express trains, including 30 Rajdhanis. All these are being run as ‘special trains’. The 100 trains that are ready to run will also be kept ‘special’. These trains will run interstate and will also have an infrastructure. The Ministry of Railways has already talked about starting rail services in a phased manner. Due to the demand of passengers and the situation of COVID-19, trains were to be run, but the plan was repeatedly postponed. Now that the Central Government has given permission to start Metro Rail services in the second week of September under Unlock 4, the workforce will move from one place to another on a large scale. The festival season is also close, so the demand for trains increases.
