“To cater to the extra rush, we have started 78 special trains from April 1,” a senior Northern Railway official told media persons. The special trains would make 1,354 trips until July, the official said.

There are about 1,200 trains that ferry about 10-12 lakh passengers every day across the country.

On the running late, often by over 5-7 hours, of trains, the official said huge traffic was one of the biggest challenge for running the trains on time. “If the train gets late then it goes on getting late as the rail traffic is already occupied by another train ahead,” the official said.

“But we are trying to ensure that the special trains run on time,” the official said.
