On Thursday, the Indian Railways announced the cancellation of 84 more trains which will not operate between 20 March and 31 March in view of coronavirus and low occupancy. With this, the total number of cancelled trains has climbed to 155.
On Wednesday, the Railway Department had cancelled around 99 trains.
"All passengers having tickets in these trains are being informed about it individually," the official said.
Meanwhile, the western and central railways have increased the price of platform tickets to as much as Rs 50 in order to keep people crowding at railway stations in view of the coronavirus outbreak.
Platform tickets charges in all six divisions of the Western Railway, that is Mumbai, Vadodara, Ahmedabad, Ratlam, Rajkot and Bhavnagar, have been increased to Rs 50. The Central Railway has similarly increased the fare at 174 divisions.
