The Railways have announced that the 12459/60 New Delhi-Amritsar-New Delhi and 14681/82 New Delhi-Jalandhar-New Delhi Intercity trains will remain cancelled till April 27.
Earlier, these trains were cancelled for more than a month and half and were expected to become operational from March 23. The further cancellation of these trains has been necessitated due to a mega block at the New Delhi railway station from March 23 to April 27.
