The special Holi ST trains started from Friday and the trains will be available for the return journey until March 12.
During the holiday season, the number of passengers increases to a large extent. Private bus owners extort money from passengers by raising ticket prices. For this reason, ST’s special trains will be a relief for passengers. ST Corporation has informed that in addition to special trains, regular trains will also be available according to the schedule.
