To tackle the heavy traffic during upcoming festivals like Durga Puja, Diwali, and Chhath, Indian Railways has announced a number of special trains. Most of the passengers who are seen taking the journey through trains in this time period are students, nuclear families, working people heading to their hometowns.
In order to combat the rush of travellers in the festival season Eastern Railway zone will run eight pairs of Puja special trains. Such special trains will run between Malda-Haridwar & Malda via Sultanpur, said Eastern Railways. People who will be travelling between Haridwar-Malda, Gorakhpur-Howrah, and Howrah-Chhapra will get benefited from this initiative taken by the Ministry of Railways. These three special trains are most likely to start before October 10, 2019, and will remain operational until November 25, 2019.
03427 Malda Town-Haridwar Special Fare Special train and 03035 Howrah-Chhapra Weekly Special Fare Special train will run from October 7, 2019, onwards. The 03035 Howrah-Chhapra special train will be operational only till October 28, 2019, and 03427 Malda Town-Haridwar special train will stretch on until November 25, 2019.
