Railway Board decides to drop special train tag and return to pre-Covid fares

The Railways has issued an order to discontinue the special tag for mail and express trains and revert to pre-pandemic ticket prices with immediate effect. In a letter to zonal railways yesterday, Railway Board said trains will now be operated with their regular numbers and fares will revert to pre-pandemic prices. Railways has been running only special trains since the lockdown was eased. Long-distance trains and even short-distance passenger services are being run as special trains with slightly higher fares to discourage people from avoidable travels.
