As part of the same, South Central Railway has announced 1079 special train services to cater to the additional rush during the summer season of April and May.

These trains have fully unreserved coaches thus providing affordable and convenient travel to the lower middle class, Shramik workers and pilgrim passengers who plan to visit these places during holiday season.

Planning and running of additional trains is a continuous process for which inputs are taken from all the communication channels 24x 7 like media reports, Social media platforms, Railway Integrated helpline number 139, apart from details of waitlist passengers in PRS system, to assess demand of trains o­n a particular route.
