Jind: Diwali festival takes place in November. In such a situation, there are no seats available for passengers on the trains to return home. There are major festivals like Dhanteras on November 10th, Diwali on November 12th, Govardhan Puja on November 14th and Chhath Puja on November 19th. In such a situation, people living in Jind from far away areas want to travel to their homes for the festival but cannot get seats in the train.
Due to the holidays, expatriates are busy preparing to travel home. In such a situation, passengers are forced to travel in buses due to lack of seats in the train. Although the fares for sleeping cars and train buses are almost the same, the train journey is somewhat more comfortable. But due to the heavy luggage in the buses, it will not be easy for passengers to travel. If a passenger in the train from Jind to Mathura has to travel in a sleeper coach, the ticket costs more than 380 rupees, while the bus fare is about the same but the journey in the bus takes more than six hours. The tax is being pushed. While passengers can travel lying down on the train and stow their luggage comfortably, passengers may have to rely on buses due to a lack of seats on the trains.
That’s waiting on trains
There is a waiting list for 197 trains in 15910 Avadh Assam Express, 165 trains in 12137-38 Punjab Mail and 209 trains in 14623 Patalkot Express stopping at Jind Junction.
