Ministry of Railways has decided to cancel/partial cancellation/divert mail/express trains during fog period from 1st December 2011 to 31st January 2012. Earlier this was announced to be effective from 20th December 2011. This is being done keeping in view the safety of the travelling passengers. It may also be noted that the fog conditions this year have occurred earlier than normally forecast and also as compared to last year and which is resulting in preponement of schedule of cancelled trains etc. The cancellation etc. of trains is being announced in advance so that travellers can plan their alternative journeys accordingly and are put to minimum inconvenience.
Zonal Railways have also been requested to constantly keep a watch on fog conditions, keep reviewing the status and consider starting cancelled trains with 3-days notice whenever and wherever feasible.
