The Central Railways has decided to cancel the premier CSMT-Karmali Tejas Express and LTT-Mangalore Express till further notice due to poor occupancy as southern states are imposing a lockdown in an attempt to rein in the spread of COVID-19.

In an official statement, a CR official said that the occupancy, both in Up and Down direction, is below 10 per cent on Tejas Express trains. The train runs between Mumbai and Goa which has also announced a lockdown.

Maharashtra government has also decided to extend the lockdown until May 15. Moreover, Karnataka too has announced a lockdown because of which occupancy of trains that would be headed to the southern state, including the LTT-Mangalore Express, is expected to be low.

Meanwhile, on Monday, April 26, the Central Railway also cancelled almost 10 pairs of trains whose originating and terminating destinations were in Maharashtra. The state has made a 14-day quarantine period mandatory for those travelling within Maharashtra.
