Road ahead for Rlys, Metro

With the fourth phase of the nationwide lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic ending on May 31 and the Centre deliberating on the roadmap ahead, the Railways is gearing up for the graded resumption of passenger train operations from June 1. Metro rail services, on the other hand, are yet to get a green light from the Centre as they remain in the list of restricted activities across the country under the latest lockdown guidelines of the Ministry of Home Affairs. Meanwhile, Railway Board Chairman Vinod Kumar Yadav said last week that at least 36 lakh migrants will be travelling on Shramik Special trains in the next 10 days. At a press briefing in the national capital last week Yadav said it’s a tough situation for everyone in the world and the attempt is to move to normalcy gradually.
