According to the railways, if farmers will raise the demand, then the number of stoppages can also be increased. Farmers can contact the authorities for its booking.

 

Farmers Can Book Their Parcel on These Contact Numbers

 

Farmers can contact the railway station for booking packages in these trains. Central Railway has provided some phone numbers for parcel booking.

Farmers Will Pay the Fare on the P Scale Basis

 

The Bhusaval Division of the Central Railway is primarily agro-based. Large quantities of fresh vegetables, fruits, flowers, onions and other perishable food products are produced in Nashik and the surrounding area. These products are mainly delivered to the surrounding areas of Patna, Prayagraj, Katni, and Satna. The train has been provided with a scheduled halt on Nashik Road. This service will help the farmers a lot because the freight will be charged on the P scale.

 

Indian Railways has taken this decision after successfully delivering onions from Nashik to Rohanpur Junction in Bangladesh. A railway official said, even though the fare will be slightly higher in this train. However, due to the arrival of goods at a remote location, farmers will get a reasonable price, which will be a profitable deal.

 

In general, among the cargo express trains, sellers have to book the entire train compartment. But there is no need to book the whole train in this farmer parcel train running from Bihar to Maharashtra. Wagons can be booked according to the demand of farmers. This train is specially run for non-bulk commodities.
