to add 225 suburban services to the existing 481, making it total 706 from 19.10.2020 for staff as notified by Government of Maharashtra and approved by Ministry of Railways," Central Railway CPRO said in a tweet.

According to the CPRO of Western Railway, Sumit Thakur, “Western Railways has extended its services to 700 trains, including 2 ladies special. Central Railways also extended its services to 706."

This happened after the Maharashtra government requested the Western Railways on 16 October to allow local trains services for women, starting 11 am to 3 pm and from 7 pm till end of services for the day, Thakur added.

“We talked to them yesterday too. Railway is ready. State govt is yet to convey their modalities to us," Thakur told news agency ANI.

“We wrote them back and asked them to assess quantum of passengers and asked them to jointly decide the modalities," the Western Railways CPRO added.

“We have to ensure that there is no overcrowding at stations, the passengers don't face any problem, and that they are able to commute while following social distancing. The response of the government is awaited," Thakur said.

All commuters travelling on Mumbai local trains have been directed by the Maharashtra government to follow the social distancing norms and wear masks while boarding, alighting at railway stations.

Meanwhile, the number of coronavirus cases in Maharashtra dropped below 10,000 on 18 October and with a rise of 9,060 infections, the state's tally has increased to 15.95 lakh.

The death toll has crossed the 42,000 mark even as the recovery rate increased to 85.86%. With 1,600 new cases, Mumbai’s coronavirus tally has increased to 2.41 lakh whereas the active cases stand at 18,062. 2,714 patients were also discharged, taking the recovery number to 2.1 lakh.

a statement the Ministry of Railways also said the fares of these trains will be similar to those applicable for special trains, which means 'special charges' will be levied making the tickets costlier by 10-30% as compared to the fares of mail/express trains, depending on the class of travel.

Full list of Festival Special Trains by Indian Railways

Till now, the railways has pressed into service 666 mail/express special trains which are now running regularly across the country. Additionally some suburban services are also being operated in Mumbai as well as certain services of the Kolkata Metro. These new festival special trains, however, will operate only till November 30 and will not have a continued run, officials said.

The Railway Board said these festival special trains will be operated at a speed of 55 kmph.

The Railways has suspended all its regular services due to the coronavirus pandemic since March and is operating trains as per demand and necessity. From May 12, Railways started running limited special trains to help stranded people across the country to reach their homes in different states. It started with 15 pairs of premium Rajdhani special trains connecting Delhi with different parts of the country, followed by 100 pairs of long-distance trains on June 1. It also started 80 trains additionally on September 12.

Earlier this month, Railway Board Chairman and CEO, VK Yadav had said Railways will take stock of passenger services on a daily basis depending on the needs of the state governments and the status of the pandemic.

"We have conducted meetings with the general managers of zones and instructed them to speak with local administration and review the status of coronavirus. They have been asked to give us a report after which we will decide how many trains can be introduced during the holiday season," Yadav had said.

While the Railway Board has approved the festival special trains, it will be up to the zones to finalise their details and schedule.
