Reservation for this will start from 10 September. These trains will be in addition to the 230 trains already running. Yadav said that the railway will monitor all the trains currently operating and find out which trains have long waiting lists.
“Whenever there is a need for a special train, wherever the waiting list is long, we will run the same (clone) train after the original train so that passengers can travel there,” said the chairman of the Railway Board. Yadav also said that the railway will operate trains on request from the states for examination or any other purpose.
