Soon rail passengers will be able to travel on general tickets

Soon people are going to get relief from the railways. In some trains, passengers will get the facility to travel on general tickets as before. At the same time, the compulsion of reservation in the general bogie will end. It is to be known that after the infection of Kovid-19 reduced, the Railways started the operation of trains with some compulsion. The reason for this was to save the passengers from the infection of Kovid-19.

According to the information received from the railways, in view of the demand of the passengers, the board was written on behalf of the railways. After this, after getting permission from the Joint Director of the Railway Board to travel on general tickets in some trains, passengers will start getting the facility.

According to the railways, apart from Dhanbad-Patna Intercity and Ganga-Damodar Express running via Jasidih, some trains will soon get this facility. However, the date regarding this arrangement has not been announced by the Railways yet.
