The Visakhapatnam-Tatanagar Special (08572) leaving Visakhapatnam on Sunday evening will remain cancelled as a precautionary measure in view of cyclonic storm Gulab, which is expected to make landfall in the Odisha coast around midnight.

The Rourkela-Gunupur Special (08127) train was also cancelled on Sunday.

The Gunupur-Rourkela Special (08128) will also remain cancelled on Monday.

Several trains were diverted and rescheduled.  

Several trains will run on a diverted route via Kharagpur-Tatanagar-Jharsuguda and Bilaspur.

The trains include Agartala-Bengaluru Cantt Special which left Agartala on Saturday night, and the Howrah-Secunderabad Special which left Howrah on Sunday morning.

Met department inputs suggest that the landfall process of cyclone Gulab will begin on Sunday evening.
