In a significant blow to Indian rail travel plans, 74 train services connecting Kerala to Northern states face cancellation between January 6 and February 7.

This decision stems from non-interlocking work at Mathura Junction station, as advised by North Central Railway authorities. The impacted trains include key routes like Ernakulam Junction – Hazrat Nizamuddin Junction DURONTO Weekly Superfast Express, Kochuveli – Amritsar Junction Weekly Superfast Express, and Thiruvananthapuram Central – New Delhi Kerala Superfast Express.

The cancellations affect 16 trains with multiple dates disrupted for each service, marking an unprecedented move in long-distance train operations. Typically, alternative routes are arranged instead of mass cancellations during infrastructure maintenance, highlighting the inconvenience for passengers, as mentioned by a source familiar with the situation.

However, railway authorities defended the decision, citing ongoing infrastructure and developmental activities across the country under the Modi government. They suggest that these cancellations, though disruptive, are part of necessary steps for future improvements in the railway network.

This situation poses a major setback for travelers relying on these vital train services, raising concerns about the impact on travel plans and the inconvenience caused by the sudden cancellations.

Here’s the list sorted chronologically by the cancellation dates:
