Coronavirus scare: Kerala trains cancelled, Full List is here

In the wake of coronavirus outbreak across the country, the Indian Railways on Thursday cancelled a total of 155 trains from March 20 to 31. Several trains were cancelled due to low occupancy after the novel coronavirus outbreak. "Trains are cancelled keeping in view the availability of alternate trains for passengers and ensuring that no passenger shall remain stranded," Railways said. The railways also promised that each passenger who has booked tickets in the 155 cancelled trains will get a full refund.

To prevent the vulnerable category of senior citizens from undertaking unnecessary travels in wake of rising coronavirus cases in the country, the railways also suspended concessional tickets for "senior citizens". Meanwhile, at any point of the journey, if a passenger feels that he is having fever, he can contact the Railway staff for medical attention and further assistance.

To discourage overcrowding, the Railways has recently increased the price of platform tickets at over 500 stations to Rs 50 from Rs 10 at major stations across the country. Railways on Tuesday had also issued a set of guidelines to zonal railways for its catering staff stating no employee having fever, cough, runny nose or difficulty in breathing should be deployed in.
