No fresh resumption of reservations from April 15: Railways

The Ministry of Railways has on Thursday clarified that Indian Railways has not resumed reservations of seats from April 15 afresh.

"Certain media reports have claimed that the Railways has started reservations for the post-lockdown period. It is to clarify that reservations for journeys after April 14 were never stopped and is not related to any new announcement," Ministry of Railways said in a statement.

"Booking of reserved train tickets was never stopped except for the lockdown period (March 24 to April 14). Since advance reservation period for taking reserved tickets is 120 days, ticket bookings for April 15 and beyond were made open much prior to the lockdown period," the Ministry added.

In summation, just because Railways is accepting ticket reservations from April 15, it doesn't necessarily mean that passenger trains will run from that date.
