As the festival of Holi approaches, Indian Railways gears up to ensure a seamless and comfortable journey for passengers with the announcement of 540 additional services.
This move comes as a boon for travelers, especially during the festive rush.
With a focus on crowd management, railway authorities are leaving no stone unturned to prioritize the smooth flow of commuters at major stations. Notably, this year witnesses an increase of 219 services compared to the previous festive season, reflecting the railways’ commitment to meeting the growing travel demands.
The planned services aim to connect pivotal destinations across the nation through well-established railway routes. From Delhi to Patna, Mumbai to Gorakhpur, and Kolkata to Puri, among others, these trains are set to cater to diverse travel needs.
To ensure orderliness, queues are being formed at terminus stations under the vigilant supervision of Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel for the hassle-free entry of passengers into unreserved coaches. Additionally, heightened security measures have been implemented, with additional RPF personnel deployed at major stations to guarantee the safety of travelers.
In anticipation of any operational disruptions, officers are on standby duty at key stations, while staff members are strategically stationed to promptly address any issues that may arise during the journey.
Furthermore, steps have been taken to enhance passenger convenience, including frequent and timely announcements of train arrivals and departures, complete with platform details.
As the nation gears up to celebrate the joyous festival of colors, Indian Railways stands firm in its commitment to ensuring a memorable and hassle-free travel experience for all passengers.
With meticulous planning and dedicated efforts, this Holi promises to be a journey filled with comfort and convenience aboard the Indian Railways network.
