Amid the alarming spike in the number of coronavirus cases in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet all the chief ministers of the state at 3 pm on Monday and discuss the COVID-19 pandemic in India. As per reports, PM Modi will also discuss a lockdown exit plan strategy with a focus on boosting the economy. 

 

Meanwhile, the central government on Sunday announced that the Indian Railways will 'partially' resume passenger train services from May 12. In a statement, the Indian Railways said that it will begin services on 15 Rajdhani routes and the fare would be equivalent to that of the super-fast train.

Officials said unlike Shramik Specials, in which only 54 passengers were allowed in every coach instead of the regular 72, these trains will run on full capacity, but no concession in fare is likely to be allowed.
