The Ministry of Home Affairs on May 11 issued a standard operating protocol (SOP) for the movement of people by trains. The guidelines have come a day ahead of the limited resumption of passenger train operations by the Indian Railways.
The order noted that the movement of trains will be allowed in a graded manner by the Railway Ministry, in consultation with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) and Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).
To enter the station, passengers are required to have confirmed e-tickets. The confirmed e-ticket will also allow for the movement of the passenger as well as the driver of the vehicle taking the passenger to and from the railway station.
