Indian Railways always works on improving the ease of travelling for passengers. These efforts increase even more during the festive season.
During this time, the organisation takes measures to deal with the influx of passengers and ensure smooth travelling for the people travelling during this time.
Making one such effort, Indian Railways has announced to operate a fleet of Ganpati Special trains to deal with the increased number of passengers during this festival.
The Central Railway and Western Railway arms of the Indian Railways will operate 312 Ganpati Special trains to deal with the festive rush.
As per a report shared online, the railways might see 1.04 lakh reserved passengers.
