Hardly 20-25 passengers were there today. This is quite expected. People are quite scared to venture out in trains
Occupancy is good there is no social Distancing like leaving middle berths Godavari RAC tickets are also issued.
Social Distancing cannot be followed in trains.
Jan shatabdi, shatabdi trains are mainly used by people going for official works, by last minute travellers who have not got ticket in premium night trains and by short distance travellers, all these kinds of passengers are absent now a days. If IR starts overnight trains like Jagannath express or puri express then they might see better patronage than jan shatabdi or shatabdi. But I think all the normal trains will start from july-august.
But for next few months trains getting into WL is quite rare
Yes . you are right. Few other sectors initial days there was crowd but later on occupancy seems reducing.Similar thing was highlighted in the Bangalore-Belgavi route, Mysuru-Bangalore route.
Even in the train Nethravathi Express ( Mumbai-Thiruvanthapuram) while there are people coming from Mumbai towards TVC, the return leg ( Travel towards Mumbai) is lesser occupied
