Indian Railways has said that passengers would have to wear face cover and undergo screening at departure and only asymptomatic passengers would be allowed. Only the passengers with valid confirmed tickets would be allowed to enter the railway stations. They have also been asked to reach the railway stations at least 90 minutes before the train's departure. Interestingly, passengers in these trains may not receive any blankets and linen to reduce the chances of the coronavirus spread. There would also be special norms for the air-conditioning inside the coaches.


Railway officials said that unlike Shramik Special trains used to transport migrant labourers in which only 54 passengers were allowed instead of 72, these trains would run on full capacity. The Railway ministry is also looking to start more special services on new routes based on availability after reserving 20,000 coaches for COVID-19 care centres and up to 300 Shramik Special trains every day.
