The Indian Railways on Thursday said that services of 50 trains will be restored from June 21 onwards to meet the passenger demand following the easing of lockdown restrictions in several states.

The trains include Duronto, Shatabdi, and Rajdhani, along with long-distance mail and express trains.

Presently, the railways is operating around 900 Special Mail Express trains every day on average.

Following the lockdown in states to tackle the second wave of Covid 19, the railways had seen a drop in the bookings and had thus stopped services of some mail and express trains last month.

Last week, Railway Board chairman Suneet Sharma told media that railways was in touch with states to gradually increase train services. The railways is keen to normalise the services at the earliest, Sharma said. Before the second wave, railways operated 1,500 trains daily.
