Mumbai may finally get its lifeline back — the local trains
local trains in Mumbai may start from September 1. In March, for the first time in 46 years, the sprawling Indian Railway network, including Mumbai’s lifeline, was completely shut down for over two months for all passengers to avoid the spread of coronavirus.
As of now, a limited number of suburban trains are operating in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region from June 14. However, only passengers who are engaged in an essential service can use the services. The list of essential services did not include bank employees or media persons.
