There are plans to finish preparing waiting tickets
Railway Board Chairman V.K. According to Yadav, the railways also has a plan to end waiting tickets. However, 30 to 40 per cent of the 1089 trains run during the era of railway corona are still running on very low revenue. The railways are keeping an eye on all the routes where there is more demand for passengers, either we run clone trains or add more trains on this route. Looking at Corona, the operation of trains is slowly being normalized.
Major damage to the railways during the Corona period
According to the chairman of the Railway Board, the railways have suffered a huge loss in revenue from passenger trains. Last year, revenue from passenger trains was Rs 53,000 crore, which is only Rs 4,500 crore so far. Revenue from passenger trains has declined by 87 per cent. Railways have earned Rs 9,000 crore more than Noor. In fact, due to the Corona, the railways have suffered huge losses this year, as most passenger trains were closed and freight was also severely affected in the lockdown.
