After launching Kisan Rail services last month and seeing the stupendous response, Indian Railways has decided that a fourth train will be added to the service.

"As soon as we get a request for Kisan Rail, we start the service in a day or two. We are getting requests regularly. The farmers have benefitted from this service and will run it as per demand. The fourth Kisan Rail will ply between Nagpur and Delhi," said VK Yadav, CEO and Chairman, Railway Board.

On addition of passenger trains keeping in mind the upcoming festive season, Yadav said they will add more clone trains on a route if needed.
