Railways gave relief to passengers, special trains stopped, fare reduced


With the reduction of corona cases in the country, the Railway Ministry has given great relief to the passengers. The Ministry has stopped the operation of special trains running on the tracks during the Corona crisis. This will give relief to the passengers on the fare. Earlier, during Corona, passengers had to pay 30 percent more fare for the journey.

The Railway Board issued a circular late Friday evening. According to the issued circular, regular fares will be operated with new guidelines regarding types of trains and travel. The second class of such trains will continue to run as reserved barring any relaxation in special cases.

A railway official said, passengers traveling in these special trains will have to pay an additional 30% fare. With the cases of Kovid under control, the Ministry in Friday’s meeting has decided to restart the trains as per pre-Covid (before corona) trains.


Before the Kovid-19 epidemic, about 1700 Mail Express trains were running but due to the epidemic, the operation of these trains had to be stopped. Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the country, Indian Railways has been operating special trains with full reservation across the country. Passengers traveling in these special trains had to pay 30 percent extra fare as compared to normal trains.
