Railways is running many special trains to manage the rush in Diwali and Chhath, especially in trains going towards UP and Bihar. If you have to go home in Diwali and Chhath and seats are full in normal running trains then you can also book tickets in these special trains. Let us tell you that even though the Railways has run special trains for Chhath and Diwali, it would be more appropriate to book tickets now. In fact, during festivals, especially in Chhath, there is a huge crowd in trains going towards UP and Bihar. In such a situation, if you book tickets on time, there is very less chance of you getting the ticket.
