After the Covid-19 pandemic in the country, train services were stopped in order to limit the spread of the Coronavirus. However, the Railways has started running some trains, including some special trains, after the Covid-19 situation in the country came under control. However, it mandated strict adherence to Covid-19 guidelines issued by the Union Health Ministry. Now, the Indian Railways is running several trains across the country in order to meet the travel demand, though it has not reached its pre-Covid level in terms of the number of trains running, as fear of Coronacirus still remains in the mind of people.
