Northern Railways has introduced 78 special trains to handle the rush during Diwali and Chhath Puja.
A total of 519 trips are scheduled during this festive time with additional 2.2 lakh train berths.
As instructed by railways, all the trains should arrive on platforms at least 30 minutes before their scheduled departure time so that the passengers have ample time to board.
NR General Manager Vishwesh Chaube said, “RPF staff are deployed in large numbers for forming queues of passengers at platforms to enable them to board the trains in a disciplined manner. Constant CCTV camera monitoring is done of all the major stations and additional ones are installed for covering every inch of the station premises.”
Please Note: Between November 2 and November 13, no platform tickets will be available to ensure limited number of passengers on platforms to facilitate those boarding the trains.
