Indian Railways has been running many special train services for passengers since last year. The railways suspended all passenger train services following a nationwide lockdown implemented to prevent corona virus infection. However, some of these trains were running with low occupancy. Thus, the Railways has decided to discontinue some special trains due to poor patronage till further orders. According to Eastern Railway, 16 special trains are being closed from 7 May 2021.
In addition, the ferries of 21 special trains are being extended by Western Railway to facilitate the passengers and to meet their demand. Booking of extended trains of special trains will start from 6, 7 and 8 May 2021 on designated passenger reservation centers and on the website of IRCTC.
At the same time, on the demand of passengers, Western Railway has decided to operate a round of superfast special train from Ahmedabad to Howrah special fare. Booking of the train has started today, from May 5, 2021 on the passenger reservation centers and on the website of IRCTC.
For the convenience of passengers and with a view to meet the travel demand, trips of 21 Special Trains are being extended.
