Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has cancelled over 180 trains today due to various reasons. About 184 trains have been fully cancelled, meanwhile, 75 trains have been partially cancelled today on November 20 due to bad weather conditions, maintenance and operational works which are to be laid on railway tracks. IRCTC has also diverted 14 trains and about 7 trains have been rescheduled. Further, there are high chances that Indian Railways may cancel trains on November 21 too due to similar reasons. Hence, passengers are requested to check their trains’ status before heading out for their respective train journeys.
Also, Mumbaikars won’t be having any access to locals and long-journey trains as Central Railways is conducting a 27-hour mega block from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) to Masjid Bunder station in south Mumbai. Hence, the train services between these stations will be suspended until November 21.
The Central Railways is conducting this mega block to dismantle the British-era Carnac Bridge. The mega block will start at 11 pm (on November 19) and end at 2 am on November 21, due to which the schedule of suburban and express trains will get affected during this period.
