It may be noted that in all these trains accommodation is o­nly for confirmed ticket holders i.e., these trains are fully reserved Special Express trains. The waitlisted passengers are not permitted to travel by these trains.

The Chairman & CEO Railway Board has already clarified that pan-India, Railway services will continue unabated. The Covid – 19 guidelines released by Government of Karnataka also permit unrestricted run of trains.

Since the lockdown of 2020, SWR has restored the 70% of the trains already. Bengaluru Division is running 86 pairs of Inter State, 23 pairs of Intra State along with 44 DEMU / MEMU Services (Including daily/non - daily both).

Also, 102 trains of other Railway Zones are running through SWR, at present and these are meeting the present demand very effectively. In the days to come , based o­n further demand if any, Railways will examine and plan for more train services as per extant guidelines.

It is mandatory to wear mask and follow Covid – 19 norms in Railway premises including trains failing which a penalty of up to Rs. 500/- may be levied.

All rail travelers are requested to abide by Covid – 19 norms.
