Only those authorised by states allowed in special trains during lockdown: Railways

NEW DELHI: The railways reiterated on Saturday night that it was ferrying only those authorised by state governments in its special trains for people stranded during the lockdown, following reports of unauthorised travel and crowding at some stations.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

In a late night statement, the national transporter said, “Railways only accepting passengers, brought and facilitated by state governments. No other group of traveller or individual are to come to station.
“Some special trains being run only on state governments’ requests. All other passenger and suburban train services remain suspended,” it said

The railways also said that no tickets are being sold at any station, advising people not to converge at any rail station .

India is under a nationwide lockdown to check the spread of of the novel coronavirus, with a ban on rail, air and road traffic.

Earlier this week, the Union home ministry allowed states to ferry their residents, particularly migrant labourers, students and tourists, stranded outside due to the lockdown in special buses and trains. (PTI)
