“As regards to the permission received from the ministry of railways, government of India, students appearing for last year exams and other competitive exams for advance studies as approved by state government of Maharashtra, are permitted to commute by special suburban products and services over Mumbai Suburban network,” the Central Railway said.
Candidates should have legal identity cards and corridor tickets, which are to be displayed at the stations. Extra booking counters may also be opened. Then again, Mumbai locals aren’t yet open for others, the Central Railway has reiterated.
The Bombay High Court on Thursday asked the Maharashtra government how long it plans to close the products and services.
Native trains, the lifeline of Mumbai’s public transport, have been shut for the final six months. In June, as the Centre announced Unlock 1, Mumbai locals resumed operations only for fundamental staff.
