In a huge feat, all trains reach on time for the first time!

In a huge feat, all trains reach on time for the first time!

New Delhi, July 2 (UNI) For the first time in the history of the country, all passenger trains have reached their destination on time.

Indian Railways achieved this unique feat on Wednesday when a total of 201 passenger trains reached their destination -- all arriving on time.

The record has been made during the Corona era under the extremely low pressure of passenger trains.

Writing on Twitter, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said the Railways was taking services to unprecedented levels. "Trains are running in the fast lane." Services are reaching unprecedented levels. Indian Railways has made history by achieving 100 per cent time restriction on 1 July."

The previous record was also made during this period. On June 23, 99.54 per cent of the trains had reached their destination on time. A record of 100 per cent could not be made that day due to the delay in the arrival of just one train.
