The Lucknow Shatabdi has been cancelled from both sides while five trains have been rescheduled including the North East Express and Puri Express.

At least 100 trains are running late. Moreover, those plying are running at snail's pace compounded by a speed restriction that has come into force in some sections between Delhi and Kanpur due to the fog, officials added.
