An official said: “Train services will have to be resumed only on specific approval of each train from Railway Board. Suggestions for phase-wise planning should be given to the Railway Board.” Officials have also stated that the decision was taken in a video conference meeting of Railway Minister Piyush Goyal with the Chairman, Railway Board on Friday.

Green signal from the government is awaited 

Trains will only begin their normal services once they receive a green signal from the government which had formed a Group of Ministers (GoM) on the issue. All 17 railways zones are preparing plans to identify trains and resume their services taking into account the availability of rakes. Further, railways will also be conducting thermal screenings on all passengers as advised by the government.
