The South Eastern Railway (SER) on Friday cancelled and short-terminated several trains of various destinations due to incessant rain in Calcutta, Howrah and several other districts of neighbouring West Bengal since Thursday resulting in water logging on tracks and various railway yards.

The SER took several measures for the convenience of affected passengers.

Food packets were made available to stranded passengers at all important stations.

Bulk SMS were also being sent to passengers regarding cancellation/rescheduling and short termination of trains.

Special counters were opened for granting refunds for cancellation of tickets.

Moreover, Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) was also directed to ensure proper food and drinking water for passengers on trains.

A spokesman of SER said that the situation is likely to improve on Saturday as the intensity of rain in Bengal has reduced. The heavy rain on Thursday was caused by a low pressure originating from the Bay of Bengal.
