Many Significant Changes in the Railway Time Table

 

According to sources, many changes can occur in the new time table of the railway, which will make a substantial improvement in the railway for many years to come. Indeed, in the last several decades, trains have been stopping on political demand. Due to fear of opposition from people and leaders, many such trains are also running in which more than half of the seats remain vacant.

 

100 Trains Can Be Stopped Running

 

Railways can stop operations of many trains which are not in demand, that is, more than half the seats of trains remain empty. It will be taken care of by the railways that another train is available as an option for passengers. According to sources, more than 100 such trains may be stopped running across the country. Those passenger trains, in which at least 50 travellers do not disembark at any halt station, will stop running for such halts. But there will be another train available for the passengers at that halt so that they will not face any problem.

 

The cancellation of trains without demand and reduction of the number of stoppages of trains will increase the speed of other trains. In this way, the railways plan to give some mail/express trains a rating of the superfast train. This decision will provide railways with one way of earning in the form of superfast charge.
