Holi festival is a symbol that depicts the significance of colours in our life. As COVID-19 vaccination is in full swing, Indian Railways is slowly returning to the track. Holi Festival 2021 will begin on 28 March and will end on 29 March. As Holi festival is coming close and commuters living in other states go to their native place on this festival, the Indian Railways has decided to start 32 new trains along with some old trains this month.

In such a situation, the Indian railway’s decision will give a lot of convenience to the passenger going home amid the coronavirus crisis.
