Railways cancels 40 trains amid Covid situation

Among the zones of Indian Railways, NWR Deputy General Manager Lt Shashi Kiran said that the cancellation of these 40 trains would hold until further orders


Considering the severity of the situation in the aftermath of the second wave of COVID-19 and owing to low passenger load, the Indian Railways has decided to cancell 40 train services.

Among the zones of the Indian Railways, North Western Railway (NWR) region deputy general manager Lt Shashi Kiran said that the cancellation of these 40 trains will hold until further orders.

The South Central Railway (SCR) has cancelled 10 trains scheduled to run between 28 April and 1 June. These trains ply on routes like Mumbai, Nagpur, Secundrabad, Hyderabad.

Another zone of the Indian Railways, South Central Railway, has said that these are temporary cancellation of trains due to poor patronized. Several trains are cancelled upto 31 May while the Kurnool city-Secundrabad train has been cancelled upto 1 July 2020.The cancellations will affect some services to Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka and Maharashtra.

The SCR has rescheduled the departure timing of Train No. 07229 from Thiruvananathapuram to Secunderabad. Instead of 7 AM, the train will depart from Thiruvanathapuram at 9.30 AM, from 28 April to 12 May.

India recorded over 3.52 lakh new Covid-19 cases in the 24 hours ending 8 am Monday, taking the country’s total infections to over 1.73 crore. Out of these, over 28 lakh cases are currently active while 1.43 crore people have recovered after testing positive. With 2,812 new fatalities, the death toll is now over 1.95 lakh.

India, home to around 1.3 billion people, has so far reported 17.64 million Covid-19 infections, but believe the tally runs significantly higher.

Vaccine demand has outpaced supply in India, with companies struggling to boost output, partly because of a shortage of materials and a fire at a facility making the AstraZeneca shot.

India’s worst-hit state of Maharashtra, home to the financial capital Mumbai, could postpone inoculation for those between the ages of 18-45 amid supply uncertainties, a government official said.

The country is negotiating with the United States, which has said it will share 60 million doses of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine with other countries.

India plans to open up vaccination to all adults from 1 May.
