Meanwhile, passengers traveling to other places in Maharashtra are facing harrowing times. Due to cancellation of trains they have no choice left to travel to other places. Due to this, the rush in other trains has increased so much that the authorities have issued a no-room for trains.
An official of Tatanagar railway station said that they got information from Garden Reach headquarters of South Eastern Railway ( SER) regarding cancellation, late running and rescheduling of trains. ” Railway has been badly hit due to the heavy rains in Howrah and Mumbai for the last couple of days. It has led to disruption in movement of trains in the Mumbai-Howrah route,” he said.
