News of 38 trains to be cancelled is wrong: Sonkar

Wednesday, 09 October 2019 | PNS | DEHRADUN

Following the news published in a newspaper regarding cancellation of 38 trains to Dehradun, the railway station superintendent of Dehradun, Sitaram Sonkar, said that the proposal was sent by the office of Divisional Railway Manager (DRM), but the permission was not given and the date for the work has been postponed until further notice. Further clarifying the situation, he said that no train has been cancelled or short terminated.

Giving further details, he said, “The construction of double line is ongoing at Laksar-Haridwar section, to interlock and non-interlock the lines. For this, a proposal was sent from our DRM office, but the railway board has not granted it. For now, it has been postponed until the next date. No train has been cancelled or terminated; all trains will operate as per their designated timings.”

When asked about the trains which might have been affected if the proposal was permitted he said, “It was in the proposal that 10 trains from Dehradun were to be cancelled and six trains were short terminated.”

When asked about the further actions on the proposal he said, “The block will be done of course as the construction of double line is to happen but the block of Dehradun railway station is also to happen from November 10, for which another proposal has been sent. Earlier what we had the information was that the construction work of double line at Laksar-Haridwar will also happen during the block of November 10. We got to know about this another proposal on Tuesday only. All trains will operate as per their respective schedules.”
