Rail traffic between Delhi and various destinations in Rajasthan was restored on Saturday with eight trains resuming their services after being suspended for nearly two weeks due to Gujjar agitation demanding ST status for the community.

"The situation has improved. We have restored the rail services in certain areas of Rajasthan," a Northern Railway official said.

"Train services have been partially restored in Rajasthan today and eight trains that were suspended due to the agitation will run as per their schedule from today," the official said.

The trains that have been restored today are Ahmedabad-Haridwar Express, Delhi-Jodhpur Mandore Express, Delhi Sarai Rohila-Jodhpur Express, New Delhi- Ahmedabad Rajdhani Express, Ala Hazrat Express, Jaipur-Amritsar Express, Porbander-Delhi Sarai Rohilla Express and Ashram Express.

The services of Jodhpur Sampark Kranti Express would resume from tomorrow, whereas Jasalmer Express and Jammu-Delhi-Ajmer Express have been partially restored.

However, the rail traffic on Gangapur City Bayana section in Kota Division has not been restored, he said, adding it will take a few more days.
