Indian Railways will run 1,200 special trains for Maha Kumbh 2025

For Maha Kumbh-2025, the Indian Railways will run 1,200 special trains from various locations across the nation to assist devotees who want to attend the major religious event. For the festival, the administration anticipates that almost 40 crore worshippers will travel to Prayagraj.

The 2019 Kumbh attracted around 24 crore devotees. Additionally, the railways have approved spending Rs 837 crore to build 19 ROBs (rail overbridges) and RUBs (rail underbridges) across the city for the convenience of passengers.

Four of the 19 ROBs and RUBs are virtually finished and will be commissioned this month. Work on seven is underway, while the construction of eight is yet to begin. Himanshu Badoni, the divisional railway manager (DRM) for the North Central Railway’s (NCR) Prayagraj division, presented a report on the state of preparedness of the NCR, the North Eastern Railway (NER), and the Northern Railway (NR).

Badoni said in Kumbh 2019, 800 trains, each with eight coaches, were operated. “This time each train will have 16 coaches and the number of trains has been increased. It can be increased further if needed,” he said.

According to the official, trains will run from the city’s stations of Prayagraj Junction, Subedarganj, Naini, Cheoki, Prayagraj Rambagh, Jhansi, Prayagraj Sangam, Prayag, and Phaphamau.
