            This remarkable performance in passenger sector has been possible due to running of 580 special trains in 2016-17 towards different directions during festive seasons and summer & winter holidays. This apart, augmentation of existing mail/express trains during rush period also contributed to the growth in passenger traffic. The passenger traffic has also increased with enhancement of different passenger facilities in trains and replacement of existing rakes with LHB rakes.
