Indian Railways is all set to run 35 unreserved mail and express special trains for the convenience of passengers. Union Minister for Railways Piyush Goyal has shared a list of 35 unreserved trains that will start plying. This is the first set of unreserved trains during the pandemic that will start running from February 22.”With the continuous increase in passenger services, Indian Railways is going to start 35 unreserved mail and express special trains from next 22 February,” he tweeted.
The railways had suspended all passengers trains in March last year following the national lockdown to combat the coronavirus pandemic and started operating some of them gradually. The government allowed resumption of train services from June 1 in a graded manner. According to Indian Railways, more than 65 per cent trains are back on track.
