Dense fog conditions continues in the northern part of the country and the trains services seems to be mostly affected as 26 trains which have been running extremely late due to heavy fog in northern India, have been cancelled by the Indian Railways in order to restore their punctuality, once a week for a month from December 17 to January 15.

This announcement by the Indian Railways made on Sunday, likely to add to the woes of rail passengers. On this note, East Central Railway (ECR) chief public relations officer AK Rajak said, “The move will help us streamline the timing of express/mail trains, which have been running inordinately late in the past few weeks.”

The 26 cancelled trains included: Anand Vihar-Danapur Express, Patna-Howrah Janshatabdi, Patna Rajdhani Express, Patna-Ranchi Janshatabdi, Sampoorna Kranti Express and Saharsa-Amritsar Express.
