Indian Railways will begin unreserved train operations soon. Piyush Goyal, the Union Minister for Railways, shared a list of the 35 unreserved trains that will begin to fly. This is the first set of unreserved trains that will start operating on 22 February during the pandemic.
He tweeted, "With the continuous increase in passenger services, Indian Railways is going to start 35 unreserved mail and express special trains from next 22 February".
In March 2020, the government suspended all passenger trains following the national lockdown to combat the pandemic of Covid-19. As of June 1, the government authorized the resumption of train services in a graded manner. More than 65 per cent of trains are back on track, according to Indian Railways.
