Maharashtra govt likely to decide on starting Mumbai locals for all citizens today
The state cabinet is likely to take a decision over allowing all commuters to travel by local trains during non-peak hours on Wednesday, officials said. The state government has been planning to allow restricted entry to all commuters between 10pm and 7am.
Railway officials said they have not received any directions from the state government so far on allowing all the passengers.
“We have not received any directions from the higher authorities yet. Passengers will be allowed to commute by local trains only after directives from the Maharashtra government and approval by the railway ministry,” said a senior railway official.
