Train services from Arunachal Pradesh will soon be restarted from September 1 after remaining suspended for over a year due to Covid-19.
The decision was taken after CM Pema Khandu had a meet with Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) General Manager Anshul Gupta on Thursday, 12th August.
The two train services to be resumed are- Shatabdi (Naharlagun- Guwahati) and the AC Express (Naharlagun-Delhi). The Donyi Polo Express shuttling between Naharlagun and Guwahati will not resume its service on September 1 as its fares/rates are under review and await finalisation.
The resumption of train services will serve as a boon for the students, traders, and business community who have been hit hard due to its absence.
