Army special trains to meet operational needs on borders
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.
