Srinagar: The railway service in Kashmir, which has remained suspended for last ten months owing to Covid-19 pandemic, will be resumed on February 17.
The suspension of train services was giving a tough time to commuters who had to daily cover long distances from north Kashmir to central Kashmir or south Kashmir.
As per railway officials, during normal days, 15 pairs of train run over the railway line from Banihal to Baramulla and carry almost 30,000 commuters including students and government employees, except one day in a week. The 137-kilometer Banihal-Baramulla railway line has witnessed inclusion of state-of-the-art imported snow-sweepers and cutters to ensure effective clearance of the runway and train tracks during winters.(KNS)
