Railways has introduced special trains on the eve of Holi festival as passengers usually don’t get confirmed tickets due to the extra rush of passengers. Now passengers in the waiting list don’t worry about the confirmation of their reserved ticket. The facility would allow passengers to celebrate the festival with their friends and family members. This year Holi falls on March 21. The Northern Railways put out a tweet on its official Twitter handle to share the information.

The special trains introduced by Railways will be running between Katihar-Firozpur, New Delhi-Barauni, Lucknow-Kolkata, Chandigarh-Gorakhpur and Anand Vihar to Kamakhya.
