Indian Railway is restoring its passenger train services to almost pre Covid-19 levels. These trains are also likely to be special trains only and not regular passenger services.
All regular passenger train services of Indian Railways were suspended when a nationwide lockdown was declared last year in March but since May 2020 special train services were started by the national transporter in a phased manner.
