However, depending on the patronage, the trains would be operated with increased or decreased frequency, the BMRCL said in a statement.
There would be no service on Saturday and Sunday on account of COVID-19-induced curfew. The BMRCL had earlier said that under the Unlock-2 guidelines, the services were available from June 21 from 7 AM to 11 AM and from 3 PM to 6 PM on weekdays and suspension of services on Saturday and Sunday.
