- Advertisment -

Train services within Kashmir have resumed on Monday, after remaining suspended for around 11 months due to Covid-19.

The train in Kashmir runs from Banihal to Baramulla, covering a distance of 137 km.

The train services were suspended on March 19, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Earlier on Sunday, Minster of Railways, Piyush Goyal had said that the train services “will enhance ease of movement and provide a big boost to the tourism sector.”

Earlier, in 2019, the train services remained suspended for about 100 days after the centre abrogated the Article 370 and bifurcated the state into two Union Territories.
