The Railways have been seeing a surge in cancellations on their long-distance passenger trains over the past week, almost mirroring the increase in the cases of novel coronavirus infection in the country.
Both Central Railway (CR) and Western Railway (WR) have seen a spike in cancellations from March 6.
On March 12, of the 65,943 tickets booked on CR, 22,441 were cancelled, amounting to ₹110.27 lakh in refunds. The cancellation rate on March 12 was 34.03%, much higher than the average rate of around 14%, CR officials said.

year-on-year figures from CR reveal that the rate of cancellation has been increasing since March 5, when it was around 18.4%.
WR has seen a similar trend, with more tickets being cancelled over the last week as compared to the same period in 2019. Between March 1 and March 12 last year, WR saw 4,34,403 ticket cancellations. The figure for the same period in 2020 was 5,27,045, an increase of 21.33%.
On Thursday, the year-on-year increase in ticket cancellations was pegged at 48.09%.
“We are also seeing cancellations of tickets that have been booked for journeys during the peak summer season,” a senior railway official said. For instance, between April 15 and June 15, WR has until now recorded 2,000 cancellations on the Mumbai-New Delhi Rajdhani Express.
Sources said that in a review meeting held by the Railway Minister with officials in the city on Monday, the issue of cancellations was discussed. “The cancellation rate at present is not too alarming, but if the trend continues, steps would need to be taken to ensure that trains don’t run empty,” a senior railway official said.
CR has stepped up its cleaning and disinfection efforts on long-distance passenger trains, with a focus on wiping and cleaning of all passenger interface areas in coaches, such as door handles, berth grab handles and wash basins. Toilets are being cleaned and disinfected and staff has been directed to frequently clean coaches en route and ensure that handwash doesn’t run out.
CR has also started disinfecting local trains, focusing on grab handles and poles.
Meanwhile, as a preventive measure, CR has closed its Heritage Museum at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus and suspended its tour of the station until March 31.

Curved last step in landing of new footbridge at Bandra station causes commuters to fall and hurt themselves; while they claim WR has not heeded their complaints, its CPRO says they will look into the matter
The landing of the new footbridge on Bandra station's east side has led to many commuters falling and hurting themselves. The last step on it is curved, causing them to slip, especially during rush hour in the crowd. Regular commuters said they have been complaining to railway officials about the step on the heavily used staircase, but to no avail.

steps needed'
"The new bridge is wide and very helpful during rush hour, but the last step of its staircase on the east is curved, leading to many commuters slipping and falling," Shweta Mankani, a regular commuter said.
Commuters said the Western Railway needs to integrate the last step with the existing road design. "During rush hour one cannot look down while walking due to the crowd and falls down," another commuter, Anurag Verma said.
The area outside Bandra station in the east is already a mess with the skywalk shut and half the road barricaded by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for BEST buses. To add to this, auto drivers bully their way through to catch commuters. The footpath under the skywalk is also encroached upon.
'A huge problem'
"For railway officials, it could be a minor problem, but not for commuters. The Western Railway needs to be more responsive to commuter complaints," said Shailesh Goyal, a member of Western Railway's Zonal Consultative Committee, the official passenger representative body on WR.
Railway officials said the new bridge was not supposed to have such a comprehensive landing, as it was to be linked to the skywalk above. However, the BMC, after an inspection and a VJTI report, declared the skywalk to be dangerous for public use and abruptly shut it, leaving the commuter dispersal planning in a mess. WR then had to give the bridge this landing.
Western Railway had planned one of widest footbridges at the station. mid-day had followed up the issue on November 15, 2018, in its report, 'Breathless Bandra station to get relief with new fob.' A WR official had said that the new footbridge built for about R8 crore was to be linked to the skywalk providing additional connectivity to it, as well as decongesting the existing middle footbridge.
WR Chief Public Relations Officer Ravinder Bhakar said they will look into the matter and work on integrating the staircase with the footpath and road design in co-ordination with the BMC.

March 1, the division has been conducting the International Women’s Day campaign with the theme  ‘Each for Equal’ to signify that collectively each one of us can help create a gender equal world. The entire crew of the train, including loco pilot, guard, sleeper TTEs, squad TTEs and RPF, are women. Congratulating the women crew members of the train, Vijayawada Divisional Railway Manager P Srinivas said that it is a proud moment for the division.
There are no limitations to the power of women and their capabilities and they are always on par with men in efficiency by transcending all the barriers, he added.
