New Delhi: In view of the festive season, the Railways is slowly preparing to normalize the operation of passenger trains. An announcement to run about 100 more trains can be announced soon. These trains will be run first on more demanding routes. At present only 230 passenger trains are running, of which 30 are Rajdhani Express trains. All these are being run like special trains. The name of the new trains will also be 'Special'.

The Railway Ministry is discussing with the states about the operation of new trains. In this regard, the Railways has also sent a proposal to the Ministry of Home Affairs. Trains can start operating as soon as he gets his permission. At the same time, when the Railways will issue zero-based time table in the next two months or in April next year, then there will be no change in the timing of these trains.

At the same time, in view of the demand of passengers, the railway is set to unlock trains. Railways had prepared the plan earlier also, but it was postponed. The Center has given permission to start Metro Rail under Unlock-4, so the Railway Ministry believes that it is not right to keep the lock of passenger trains.
