Train passengers from Kerala, Goa, Rajasthan, Delhi-NCR, Gujarat and Uttarakhand will now be required to produce a negative RT-PCR test report taken at most 48 hours before travelling to Maharashtra.

The Maharashtra government has categorised these six states as 'places of sensitive origin' amid the recent surge in COVID-19 cases. A new SOP has been put in place for travel in long-distance trains from these states to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
