The Railways' Integral Coach Factory, based in Chennai, had floated a tender for manufacturing 44 train sets of semi-high speed Vande Bharat trains on July 10.
While 2.7 lakh passengers, including 20 per cent reserved and the rest un-reserved, travel through the zonal railway, the railways will lose around Rs 4.58 crore daily.
Most of the trains cancelled were to run on Sunday. Some other trains, which were to run next week, have also been cancelled.
Southern Railway cancelled 32 trains, while North Frontier Railway and South Central Railway cancelled 20 trains each.
