The South Eastern Railways said that the 20828 Humsafar Express, operating from Santragachi to Jabalpur via Tatanagar, will not run on February 21 due to the construction of a third line between Anuppur and New Katni stations on the Ghunghuti section of Bilaspur.

According to reports, the cancellation of the down train will extend to February 22 as well. Girder work is scheduled for both the up and down lines, as well as the third line between Gudma and Amgaon stations in the Nagpur division.

Furthermore, the railway administration will be responsible for implementing a power block. Due to these circumstances, the 18109 Itwari Express from Tata to Itwari will not operate on March 5, while the down train will be cancelled on March 7.
