    Coastal Karnataka was the news.. Only trains bound Thiruvananthapuram, i.e. the southern most state capital, pass through Konkan railway, Mangalore being the major railway station. Bangalore is state capital of Karnataka.. kindly check the stops for the trains to Bangalore.

    Our contract is terminated and we have to renew it going to Bangalore... Due to lockdown we are stuck... If the train goes via Hassan route and they give a stop in Hassan then it will b convenient for us... Or it's difficult...

    First thing is, the service is as a result of request from Kerala to run special train from Delhi to Kerala to get back it’s people. Instead of starting non stop train like other trains, central government gave nod for train with stops. This have increased the risk. This will make hard for the state government to track people. (Some stops are major hub for Covid-19 spread)
