“It is clear that passengers are now feeling confident to undertake rail travel in between various cities of the country in view of the safety measures taken by the railways. However, railways would like to request passengers to undertake rail travel only if it is absolutely essential, to minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19,” the release added.
