Amid the downward dip of the COVID graph in Rajasthan, the North Western Railways has decided to unlock the operations of 17 trains here, bolstering commute services that were otherwise limited till May 2021. Of these, about 12 trains will run from the state capital Jaipur, easing travel for many. With the revival of this fleet, around 60% of trains will ply from the desert state, read reports. By June 15, more trains will be added to the operational convoy.
Passenger load is gradually increasing in trains
The reservation activity in North-Western Railways has picked up, which suggests an increasing passenger load in the services. Earlier in Jaipur, about 100 reservations were made in both the shifts, daily and now, this number has witnessed a 5-fold rise, accounting for over 500 bookings per day. If this trend continues, the rails will run at full capacity. Reservation waiting might also become common in the coming days.
