You don't need a negative COVID-19 certificate to travel by train. This was announced at a press briefing held by Railway Board Chairman Suneet Sharma
on April 9.
 
Passengers only have to follow the recent COVID-19 guidelines and protocols issued by state governments after cases started rising again.
 
At the briefing, Sharma also said that railways will not stop or curtail any train services, and that trains will be provided on demand.
 
"There is no plan to curtail or stop train services. We will run as many services as required. There is no cause for alarm. We can run trains immediately on demand if there is any rush. This rush is normal during the summer season and we have already announced trains to clear the rush," he said.
 
Due to the rise in cases, various states have implemented measures like partial lockdowns. As a result, railway bookings have seen an increase. 
 
Attempting to quell the anxiety, Sharma assured that there will be no shortage of trains for those who want to travel. "I assure everyone that trains will be provided on demand," he said.
