Engineering work at Sabarmati station causes train cancellation

The Gujarat Meteorological Department has forecasted light rain in select areas of the state over the next 24 hours, particularly in some districts of South Gujarat and certain regions in southern Saurashtra. After this period, dry weather is anticipated. As temperatures rise, the intensity of the cold is expected to decrease.
