Indian Railways has announced a change in the schedule of many trains from today. It has also partially cancelled many special trains.
If you have already booked a ticket, then you need to check the status of your train by entering the PNR number on the Indian Railways website. In case you are planning to travel via special trains, you have to check the list of cancelled trains and new schedule of trains before making journey plans.
The decision has been taken by the railways as many states have started their ‘unlocking process’ as the impact of the second wave of coronavirus has slowed down in the past few weeks.
The Indian Railways had stopped the running of many special trains due to various restrictions imposed by state governments and Central government during the second wave of coronavirus in April-May 2021.
North Central Railway took to Twitter on Sunday to announce the decision. It tweeted pictures giving details about the change in timings of the trains and cancellation of special trains.
