NEW DELHI: The railways on Friday announced a plan to discontinue the “special” tag to all mail and express trains and said in the next couple of days, over 1,700 such trains will be back on tracks as was the case before Covid-19 hit the country.
“There will be complete restoration of train services,” said an official. This also means that all the trains will halt at all the designated stations as it was before the pandemic. The normal train operations were discontinued from March 25 after the lockdown was imposed. Though the railway operations were restored partially, all trains were operated as “special” trains.
There was no clarity whether the railways will also restore the fare concessions for different categories of passengers.
