A total of 68 trains will run along the corridor each day between October 23 and 26 at an interval of 20 minutes, as is the norm now on every Sunday, the Kolkata Metro general manager said
Kolkata: Metro services along the city's north-south corridor will be available for 12 hours from 10 am on all four Durga puja days, unlike every year when trains run late into the night for revellers, Manoj Joshi, the general manager of the rapid transit system, said on Wednesday.
Joshi also said special services haven't been scheduled this year, in view of the Calcutta High Court's directions that sought to avoid public gatherings outside pandals, amid the surge in COVID-19 cases in Bengal.
