said that the railways had worked out a proposal and sent it to the state government for approval on Tuesday. The proposal mentioned resuming special and limited trips between neighbouring townships to facilitate basic rail transport connectivity. A railway spokesperson said they will go by the Maharashtra government’s guidelines and instructions following railway board approvals.
“A number of commuters who stay in areas of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR), like Diva, Vasai, Virar, Panvel, used to cross commute in these trains daily and their closure has badly affected everyone. Not everyone goes to Churchgate and Mumbai CSMT, but many work in other parts of the town and these east-west trains used to help a lot,” Himanshu Vartak, consultative committee member for Palghar station said.
Government officials are wary of new relaxations before a complete assessment post-Ganpati festivities. Tens and thousands of Mumbaikars who went to their native places are slowly returning.
