The decision on whether or not the Indian Railways will start the train service from April 15 after the lockdown ends. Railway has just denied the news of the commencement of passenger trains. Sources in the Ministry of Railways said that it will be decided whether the train will run only after the approval of the Group of Ministers. The Railway Ministry will hold a review meeting from 12 to 13 April. In this meeting, the Ministry will decide what will be the action plan to start the train. A train can run on selected routes with conditions.
According to the information received, running a train on selected routes can get the green signal. But trains will not run at Corona hotspots or congested stations.
With this, the health of the passengers will be checked by using the Arogya Setu app. If a passenger is not found healthy, he will not be allowed to travel. With this, traveling can be done by wearing a mask.
The Railway Ministry's plan is that the thermal screening of passengers should be done at railway stations. The train will not stop at the station coming under the Corona Hotspot.
All railway security personnel, staff, guards, TTE and other officials have been asked to be ready to join their duties from 15 April. According to sources, messages have been sent to all 17 railway zones to make preparations. It has been told in the reports that the railway has also sent the timetable of the train to the train drivers, guards, station manager, and other employees. The Railway Board has asked all the 17 zonal railways to be ready to run the canceled train. Let us tell you that to prevent the infection of Coronavirus, the Railway Board has closed all trains till the next 14 April.
