New Delhi [India], September 21 (ANI): Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) on Monday started 20 pairs of clone special trains services on specific routes to counter the heavy rush in special trains.

A clone train will be running with the same number like the actual train to carry wait-listed ticket holders.

Millions of workers migrated back from cities to villages after the Covid-19 lockdown was imposed in late March, bringing industrial activities to a virtual halt.

With the easing of restrictions, many of them have started coming back to industrial belts in cities and small towns. That has led to a heavy rush of passengers at railway stations across the country.
