The Railways had suspended all passenger trains services due to the imposition of a nationwide lockdown from March 25. However, it resumed services in a staggered manner with Shramik Special trains to help stranded migrant workers reach their home states from May 1.

Later, it started 230 special trains across the country, followed by another 80 special trains from September 12. The additional trains were announced keeping in mind the Covid-19 situation and also to allow reverse migration of workers to urban areas for work, with the country entering into Unlock 4.0

The Railway also recently started operating clone trains under its network. Initially, a total of 40 (20 pairs) of trains will operate in the Indian Railways network which has seen a huge passenger traffic demand.


The main feature of the clone trains will be that these trains will have fewer stoppages and will also run at a higher speed than the original train.

Meanwhile, the Indian Railway Catering And Tourism Corporation Limited (IRCTC) on Wednesday announced to restart the operation of Tejas Express trains for catering to the growing passenger demand due to the festive season.
