Indian Railways alters 'Shramik Special' guidelines; allows trains to take more passengers

 

The Railways has also issued an order on special trains for migrants directing the railway zones to provide three stoppages in the destination state other than the final stop.

 

In what comes as a surprising development, the Indian Railways on Monday said that the Shramik Special trains for migrant workers will now run with a full capacity of 1,700 passengers and not with the current capacity of 1,200 passengers.

 

The Railways has also issued an order on special trains for migrants directing the railway zones to provide three stoppages in the destination state other than the final stop.

 

The Railways has the capacity to run 300 trains per day and it intends to maximise it in order to transport as many migrants as possible over the next few days.
