After nearly two months of hiatus, the Ministry of Indian Railways announced on Sunday, May 10 2020, that Indian Railways will finally resume operation of 15 pairs of passenger trains from May 12, 2020. These trains will start from Delhi railway station and will connect to other major stations- Ahmedabad, Mumbai Central, Dibrugarh, Agartala, Jammu Tawi, Madgaon, Ranchi, Bhubaneshwar, Bengaluru, Chennai, Howrah, Secunderabad, Patna, Thiruvananthapuram and Bilaspur.

These trains will, however, serve as special trains with certain terms and conditions. One of which is that they are all air-conditioned Rajdhani Trains, with premium fares. Apart from passengers with confirmed bookings, others will not be entertained in the various stations. Face masks and covers will be mandatory for each and every passenger, and all have to undergo proper screening. Passengers with COVID-19 symptoms will not be allowed to board trains, even though he/she has confirmed a ticket.

The Ministry further states that they will resume trains on other routes, based on the availability of coaches. Certain trains have been in operation amidst nationwide lockdowns such as those transporting essential goods to various parts of the country, the ‘Special Shramik’ which carries stranded migrants and another 20000 coaches that are reserved for COVID-19 care centres. Further details and updates will be issued later in due course of time.
