We are in the middle of January the month of 2021. Fog and mist are beginning to affect the journey on trains or Flights. This year in 2021 Indian Railway installs devices in trains to assist drivers in foggy conditions. The visibility test object is placed at a distance of 180 meters from the starter and if it is not visible to the station master or the station superintendent, fog conditions are declared.
The cancellation of trains is being announced in advance so that train passengers can plan their alternative journeys accordingly and are put to minimum inconvenience.

Indian Railway is canceling many train services due to fog and haze, especially in the north zone and eastern zone in India. Several flights have been delayed or canceled and train services have been hit as well.
General Manager of Northern railways said though the short distance trains were delayed due to fog, the long-distance trains have little option in this foggy weather. He added that such delay was likely to continue in the next few days till the fog lasts. The worst affected are trains coming from Delhi and other states in central and North India that are running late by up to 10 hours. Even Rajdhani special trains too were delayed due to fog.
