Ahead of the summer vacations, all long-route trains, especially those running towards Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, and Kolkata are packed with passengers.
Railway counter officials claimed that trains having the maximum waiting list numbers were Amarapali Express running between Amritsar and Katihar (WL-340), Shaheed Express from Amritsar to Jaynagar (WL-277), Paschim Express from Amritsar to Bandra Terminus (WL-240), Sarvodaya Express (WL-260), Jalandhar City to Katihar (WL-370), Garib Rath from Amritsar to Saharsa (WL-316), Amritsar-Howrah Express (WL-256), Gangasatluj Express from Ferozepur to Dhanbad (WL-315).
In-charge of reservation counter VL Meena stated: “With the arrival of summer vacations, daily footfalls have increased at reservation counters in the city railway station from 700 to 1,500 per day. This is the time most people are taking the help of agents moving in and around the station premises. Apart from this, some long- route trains on which local people prefer to travel are running overcrowded these days, due to the ongoing summer vacations. This problem of heavy rush will continue until the middle of July.” Read More
