Army special trains to meet operational needs on borders 

#GS3 #Pandemic 

Fresh orders issued on work in compliance with lockdown 

  • To meet the operational requirements on the northern and eastern borders during the lockdown period, the Army has decided to run two military special trains. 
  • Only personnel due to rejoin units deployed on the northern and eastern borders and have undergone the mandatory quarantine period and found medically fit will be accommodated. 
  • The train on April 17 would run between Bengaluru-Belgaum-Secunderabad- Ambala-Jammu, and the one the next day would run between Bengaluru-Belgaum - Secunderabad-Gopalpur- Howrah-New Jalpaiguri-Guwahati. 
  • This would enable decongestion of Category A and B training establishments in Bengaluru, Belgaum, Secunderabad and Gopalpur as well as assist in operational preparedness of active formations deployed on the borders.
