The South Central Railway (SCR) also announced partial cancellation of 40 express trains for the three days of the rail blockade. As many as 70 trains would be diverted, 11 re-scheduled and five regulated, said an SCR statement.

MMTS (Multi-Modal Transport System) services or local trains in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad will be operated between Hyderabad and Lingampally, and Secunderabad and Lingampally.

The MMTS trains between Hyderabad and Secunderabad, and Secunderabad and Falaknuma stand cancelled.

The cancelled express trains include major ones between Hyderabad and key destinations like New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Visakhapatnam, Tirupathi and Ajmer.

The details of the cancelled, diverted and rescheduled trains can be obtained from the website www.scr.indianrailways.gov.in, the statement added.

During the two-day rail blockade Sep 24 and 25, the railways had cancelled 72 express and 264 passenger trains.
