New Delhi: Indian Railways on Thursday (June 25) announced the cancellation of all regular and suburban trains till August 12, 2020, in a notification. All special trains like Rajdhani, mail trains however will continue to operate. The decision was taken for the increasing number of COVID-19 cases nationally. “It has been decided that regular time-tabled passenger services including Mail/Express, passenger and suburban services stand cancelled up to 12.08.2020,” the Railway Board said in a statement.

Also, all the tickets booked for the regular time-tabled trains from July 1 to August 12 stand cancelled. “It has also been decided that all the tickets booked for the regular time-tabled trains for the journey date from 01.07.20 to 12.08.20 also stand cancelled and a full refund will be generated,” the statement added.

However, the 230 special trains that have been put in motion during the lockdown will continue to run, the national transporter said. Special Rajdhani and Mail/Express services started on May 12 and June 1, respectively.
