Indian Railways Likely to Cancel 1,100 Trains due to Power Shortage

The growing coal crisis in the country has led to the cancellation of 100 thousand passenger trains.

Coal shortages are on the rise across the country. As a result, various states, including Gujarat, are facing severe power cuts. The central government, which is facing a severe crisis, is taking various constructive steps to alleviate the coal shortage.

Following this, the Railways has decided to cancel 1,100 passenger trains across the country. The decision was taken by the Railways to ensure that freight trains carrying coal reach their destination faster.

These passenger trains are scheduled to be canceled gradually for the next 20 days. This decision of the Railway Department has upset the train passengers. The railway administration, which is in the process of implementing the scheme to address the power problem, is hopeful that additional coal can be transported by canceling the passenger train.

Mail and express train journeys are also to be canceled. The railway administration has already canceled 670 trains to expedite the transport of coal to thermal power stations. The move is said to continue for months to come.

The announcement of abrupt cancellation of trains has caused severe inconvenience to commuters to Chhattisgarh, Orissa and Madhya Pradesh and Jharkhand. Travelers from this state to other states have also been inconvenienced.

Due to the increasing heat in the country, the demand for electricity has also increased. As the demand for coal for power generation is very low, steps are being taken by the Railways to alleviate the shortage of coal. According to Railway Board Chairman VK Tripathi, demand and consumption of coal has increased by 20 per cent over the previous year.
