Special trains will be lauched immediately

If the crowd is massive, then immediately special trains will be run without any announcement. Northern railways will also run trains from Prayag Ghat and Prayag stations to Faizabad, Lukhnow and Jounpur. The already scheduled trains will run as usual.

Special facilities by the Railways

Railways has also made big enclosures for 10,000 pilgrims at the Allahbad junction. The basic amenities like vending stalls, CCTVs, separate toilets blocks for men and women, water booths, ticket counters, LCD TVs and passenger announcing systems will also be provided there.

The railways will also plan to arrange proper cleaning of the area during the whole festival. As it is will be a massive gathering where more than 100 millions pilgrims are expected to arrive, managing all the events is a challenging task for the govt. However, all the measures are taken to handle the situation. Even private players have been contacted to manage all the necessities required in the festival.
