Railway Time Table | Indian Railway Time Table PDF Download
When will the new railway time table be released?
We except, the train time table book (schedule) will be released once the train service returns to normal.
Rail traffic has been severely affected by the Corona outbreak. Prior to the curfew, the railways operated few trains to prevent the spread of the virus.
Now curfew, with relaxations, is currently in effect, with the railways operating more than 900 mail and express trains. That is, only 50 percent of trains operate. As the corona epidemic recedes, we expect train traffic to return to full normalcy. A new time table is being prepared to inform the time of trains. When train traffic returns to normal, the book is released.
On many express trains, stops are reduced by asking the passenger’s opinion. Thus, after the release of the new schedule book, the travel time of express trains is likely to be reduced from 30 minutes to six hours.
