Actually, the Railway Time Table Committee Meeting held in Bengaluru from 26 to 28 February. Officers involved in the operation of all zones were present. The meeting discussed trains running in the country. There was also discussion about the new train between Bhagalpur-Pune.
A large number of people of East Bihar reside in Pune. Running this train will help passengers as well as the students. Thousands of families from East Bihar live in Pune. They have to face a lot of difficulties by changing trains while traveling to hometown.
There was a long time demand: The demand for new train between Bhagalpur to Pune was going on for a long time. Every time passengers were getting assurance. Currently there is not a single train from Bhagalpur to Pune. In such a situation, people here have to go to Patna to board the train. In addition to this, train from Bhagalpur will also help the passengers of Munger and Lakhisarai district.
The passengers of Jharkhand will also benefit: Passengers from Sahibganj, Godda, Hansdiha and Dumka also come Bhagalpur to board the train. There is no direct train service from these cities. In such a situation, the passengers of Jharkhand districts will also get benefit.
The Railway Time Table Committee has proposed a new train between Bhagalpur-Pune. Officers are churning on this. The train is expected to run from July.
