The Central Railways have permitted the students appearing for the final-year examinations to use the local train. The students would be allowed to travel on the locals after they show their identity card or their hall tickets.

However, most of the students are to take the final-year examinations online. Therefore, the need for this concession might not be required for everyone. However, if one is to travel by the local trains, the said student would have to carry an identity card. Moreover, additional booking counters will be set up at important stations in order to avoid inconveniences.

The final-year examinations that are to take place in the first week of October are touted to come out with the results by the end of the month.

On September 8, Mumbai University issued a circular regarding the organization of the examinations. Examinations are to be conducted at the college level in a cluster system. This means that there will be one lead college and 6 to 7 schools in the area. In this one cluster, examinations will be held one at a time, according to the schedule. Question papers will also be cluster wise. Students will receive instructions from their college regarding the same.

Currently, the local trains are plying with restricted access for essential workers only. Therefore, with the decision to conduct these examinations across the country, it is only convenient for the students to travel in the local trains.
