When the lockdown was announced a year ago due to Corona virus, all trains were also stopped running. However, some trains were later allowed to run. But now, with the pace of Corona slowing down, Northern Railway has decided to run 35 local trains as unreserved mail / express special trains from 22 February. This is the first time in the Corona era when unregistered mail / express special trains are being run for passengers. In which passengers will be able to travel without reservation. Earlier all the special trains run were completely in reserve.
These 35 trains include Pratapgarh to Varanasi, Faizabad to Lucknow, Lucknow to Kanpur, Ambala to Ludhiana, Saharanpur to Una Himachal, Saharanpur to Delhi, Hazrat Nizamuddin to Kurukshetra, Palwal to Ghaziabad, Shakurbasti to Palwal, Moradabad to Saharanpur, Bareilly to Delhi, Express trains running from Balamu to Shahjahanpur, Pathankot to Jogindernagar, Bathinda to Ferozepur Cantt, Amritsar to Pathankot, Banihal to Baramulla and Pathankot to Udhampur route are included.
At the same time, due to being a special train, it is allowed to travel on a reserved ticket only. But after the announcement of the unreserved ticket running from 22 February, now passengers will be able to travel with the unreserved ticket. This will make the passenger quite economical. Permission will also be given to travel through the Monthly Pass in these trains.
A year ago, India was alerted as soon as the outbreak of Corona virus occurred. Since the public curfew on March 22 last year, it was expected that the lockdown would be imposed in the country like other countries. The lockdown was imposed from 25 March, due to which Indian Railways also stopped the wheels. The severity of the epidemic could be gauged from the fact that the Railway Ministry had told the countrymen in a tweet that the Indian Railways never stopped even during the war. Please understand the seriousness of the circumstances. Stay at home. Due to non-running of the train, the problems faced by the passengers will now go away and the passengers will now be able to travel comfortably with tickets.
