In addition to the above-mentioned trains, four special trains originating from the jurisdiction of East Coast Railway have also been cancelled due to dearth of passengers and a surge in COVID-19 cases.
The trains are Bhubaneswar-Jagdalpur-Bhubaneswar Special from Bhubaneswar from May 8-22, from Jagadalpur between May 9 and May 23, Visakhapatnam-Kirandul-Visakhapatnam Special from Visakhapatnam from May 7 to May 21, from Kirandul between May 8 and May 22.
