Asia’s second largest railway operator has instructed its zonal offices to decide and notify opening of reservation counters as per local needs and conditions. These reservation counters will open from Friday in a phased manner, along with dissemination of information about their respective locations and timings as per the local needs and conditions.
Indian Railways has also allowed booking of reservation tickets through the common service centres and ticketing agents.
It may be noted that running of Shramik Special trains will continue to be handled by local state governments as per the existing protocols.
Opening of all these booking facilities once again will mark an important step in the graded restoration of passenger railway services and making the task of ticket booking easy for all prospective railway passengers.
Zonal railways may adhere to standard social distancing guidelines and observe the hygiene protocols in view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
