Passengers in a fix as many Mumbai, Pune trains cancelled for 4 days

13 Mail/Express trains on Nagpur-Pune-Nagpur and Nagpur-Mumbai-Nagpur routes cancelled on October 27, 28, 29 and 30

 

Nagpur: Thousands of passengers are furious as Central Railway cancelled at least 13 Mail/Express trains on Nagpur-Pune-Nagpur and Nagpur-Mumbai-Nagpur routes for four days on October 27, 28, 29 and 30. Apart from cancellation of the trains, the Railways have short-terminated six tarins between Kacheguda-Narkhed-Kacheguda, Amravati-Tirupati-Amravati and Amravati-Surat-Amravati.

With Diwali festival round the corner, the move by the Railways has left the passengers in a fix.

According to the officials, the trains have been cancelled as Central Railway is undertaking non-interlocking work at Badnera Station in Bhusawal Division  leading to disruption of travel plans of thousands of travellers. The decision has resulted in discontentment among travellers who are appalled at Railways decision of leaving them in lurch at the last moment. A large number of people from Vidarbha are working or stationed in Mumbai and Pune region and the travel by trains is the safest and one of the fastest and reliable travel options.


According to officials, all the trains that have been cancelled have been drawing packed houses between Nagpur-Pune-Nagpur and Nagpur-Mumbai-Nagpur and also having waiting lists. But the decision has been taken at Headquarters level.

For the passengers, now the only option of traveling is through road or air on the dates. It means coughing out more money given the high rates and lack of availability. Especially those who had booked tickets for entire family are driven to despair as they would have to shell out quite a premium and this extra financial burden in such hard times is giving them sleepless nights.
