Early Times Report

Srinagar, Nov 18: The railway service on Baramulla-Banihal track is reported to be nearing normalcy with six trains running on the tracks between 1000 hrs to 1500 hrs in Kashmir valley, where the service was suspended for 105 days due to security reasons post abrogation of Article 370 and Article 35 A.
"The trains on Monday were running normally on Srinagar-Banihal and Srinagar-Baramulla tracks," a railway official told UNI.
He said six trains will run between Baramulla and Banihal on Monday. However, he said trains will run only between 1000 hrs to 1500 hrs due to security reason.
The service on Srinagar to Banihal in Jammu region via central and south Kashmir was resumed on Sunday, a day after successfully conducting trial run on Saturday. However, only one train ran on Sunday on the track in the afternoon.
A senior Railway police official said that all security arrangements are in place. "Railway police and district police and other security agencies are working in close coordination to provide proper security to passengers," he said.
Train service on Srinagar-Badgam-Baramulla in north Kashmir track was resumed on November 12.
Train service was suspended as a precautionary measure from Baramulla in north Kashmir to Banihal in Jammu region via central and south Kashmir on August 5, when centre scrapped Article 370 and 35 A besides downgraded the state and divided it into two Union Territories (UTs).
Since there was no major untoward incident and following improvement in the situation, the Divisional administration in Kashmir directed railway department to start the suspended train service from November 11.
However, railway department conducted trail run on November 11 on Srinagar-Badgam-Baramulla in north Kashmir and finally started train service from November 12. The number of passengers who availed the train service was very less as compared to before August 5.
Due to suspension of the train service, the railway department has suffered a loss of over Rs three crore.
Owing to its economic, safe and fast service, trains are very popular against any other mode of transport.
