Daily commuters and unreserved passengers are facing a harrowing time in Kerala as the Railway is continuing with its travel restrictions introduced during the time when the COVID-19 pandemic was raging. Even though the pandemic-related curbs have been eased in most of the other sectors, the Railway has allowed unreserved travel only in a few coaches on day trains running within the state. However, these unreserved coaches are always packed to more than their capacity, while the reserved bogies have numerous vacant seats.

“This is a real problem.” says K Aneesh, a regular traveller from Kochi to Thiruvananthapuram. “I simply don’t understand why they (Railways) are not relaxing the covid protocol on night trains. Also they need to introduce unreserved travel on trains coming from other states to Kerala. This will help ease the problem in a big way,” he said.
