New Delhi (NVI): To facilitate an easy journey for passengers, Indian Railways is all set to start 71 unreserved mail/express trains from April 5, 2021, to be run by Northern Railways.

The Northern Railway zone, for the convenience of railway passengers, is running various pairs of unreserved mail and express trains across the Indian Railways network.

Railway Minister Piyush Goyal had tweeted on Friday that this decision is being taken to keep the comfortability of passengers.

Previously, Piyush Goyal had mentioned that Railways will reactivate the facility of UTS ON MOBILE App where unreserved train services are being reintroduced.

The Zonal Railways have been instructed that whenever unreserved train services are introduced on any zonal Railway, the Zonal Railway concerned may accordingly enable UTS ON MOBILE app for issuing unreserved tickets.

This is being done to avoid any inconvenience caused to passengers in booking unreserved tickets and also make sure that during this COVID-19 pandemic, the norms of social distancing at booking counters are maintained while purchasing the tickets.
