To meet the massive travel demand coming in from all corners, Indian Railway has decided to run a special summer train between Ahmedabad and Samastipur from 18th April, 2021. Divisional Railway Manager of Western Railway, Deepak Kumar Jha informed the media that the new train would be a fully reserved one and would run as a special fare train. The booking on this train is currently available for a very limited amount of time.

It was reported that over the next 2 months, the Indian Railway is likely to restore its passenger train service to almost pre-pandemic levels, provided the pandemic remains under control and all the necessary approvals are given by the concerned state governments. These trains are most likely to be special trains only. 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.
