Indian Railway through its Central Railway division has decided to add a Superfast express summer special train between Mumbai and Prayagraj from 27rd April, 2021. It will run between Dadar in Mumbai to Prayagraj in Uttar Pradesh. The reservations for the train are currently open.
Indian Railways has been busy opening new train routes to ease the burden of railway travelers who have been left stranded without the service of public transport after the announcement of nationwide lockdown.

Indian Railway wants to restore its passenger train service to pre-lockdown levels, provided the Covid-19 stays under control. These are most likely to be special train service 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.
