We eliminated halts of six trains, started 80 services

Although several passengers are unhappy with the new timetable, WR says the changes were made keeping in mind the large number of commuters.

Several passengers from Jogeshwari, Bhayandar and Vasai are not happy with the new timetable introduced by the Western Railway that came into effect from November 1. The minister of state for housing and Jogeshwari MLA has taken up the matter with the railway officials, and is scheduled to meet them on Friday. The WR, however, claims that the changes are aimed at benefiting the passengers at large. Mumbai Mirror’s Kamal Mishra spoke with the Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) of Western Railway, Sanjay Mishra, on the issue.
