extend cancellation of trains by another 10 days in view of
foggy weather conditions persisting in parts of north India.

Indian states continued to hamper smooth train movement.

It would mean that services of about 27 trains cancelled
from December 22 till January 10 will remnain suspended for
another 10 days.

As many as 15 trains had to be rescheduled today from New
Delhi as close to 50 incoming trains arrived here several
hours behind schedule due to thick blanket of fog at several
places in the region.

The late incoming trains included about six Rajdhani
Express trains from places like Howrah, Sealdah, Dibrugarh,
Patna, Ranchi and Bilaspur.

The departure timings of all these trains were revised
along with over eight other trains including New Delhi-Howrah
and Nizamuddin-Chennai Duronto expresses, New Delhi-Kanpur
Shatabdi express and Anand Vihar-Bhagalpur Vikramshila
express.
