NEW DELHI, May 14 - Bookings made before and during the lockdown period for journeys to be taken till June 30 on regular trains have been cancelled, the Railways said on Thursday, indicating that normal passenger services are unlikely to resume by that date.

While earlier, the regular train passenger services were cancelled until �further advice�, the Railways� Thursday order indicated that there would be no resumption of these services at least till the end of June.
�Regular passenger service including Mail/Express, Passenger and Suburban services have been cancelled until further advice,� said the Thursday order.
�The competent authority has desired that all the tickets booked for the above trains for the period up to 30th June 2020 may be cancelled and full refund generated as per provisions,� it said.
The tickets to be cancelled were booked before and during the lockdown period, till April 14, when the Railways was still allowing bookings for journeys in June, an IRCTC official said. � PTI
