It is Monsoon time in India and the first month of this season has already caught the Indian Railways out and caused many citizens to be inconvenienced. Heavy showers today, especially in regions like Mumbai, Goa and Gujarat and even in north and south India, affected the scheduled run of many trains. While the Monsoon is a good time for Indian farmers, heavy rains become a cause of concern for transporters like airlines and Railways. Therefore, today, due to heavy rains, Railways has taken precautionary measures by fully cancelling as many as 150 trains across India. There were 89 trains partially cancelled so far.
