Maharashtra government has given a big gift to women on Navratri. Now from Saturday, women can also travel on local trains. Women can travel by local train from 11 am to 3 pm and from 7 pm to late at night. Although the Railway Board has not given the go-ahead to the Maharashtra government's decision, it is believed that the railways will get permission.
State Disaster Control Relief and Rehabilitation Secretary Kishore Raje Nimbalkar have written a letter to Western Railway to allow local women to travel in local trains. With this, now women of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region i.e. MMR region will be able to travel by local train from Saturday. For this, they will not need any type of QR code.
