The deadly global pandemic has changed the lives of almost every individual in some capacity or another. Although the raw numbers of the positive cases seem to have peaked in the ongoing 2nd wave, the fear and psychosis remain intact and the need to remain vigilant and careful is as paramount as ever.
In order to facilitate the railway passengers in these trying times and with a view to meet the travel demand, South Central Railways division has decided to continue to run the festival special trains between Yesvantpur and Hazrat Nizamuddin.

Indian Railway is restoring its passenger train services to almost pre-pandemic levels, provided the pandemic gets under control with the number of cases coming down and all the necessary approvals are given by the concerned state governments along with the nod of the Railway Ministry. 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.
