To help the local small scale producers/ traders of North Eastern region, Northeast Frontier (NF) Railway has decided to grant 30pc discount in eight Time Tabled Parcel Special trains, reports The Sentinel Assam. This discount will be initially applicable up to March 31, 2021, and thereafter will be reviewed for extension every six months depending on the utilisation of the parcel space, NFR CPRO Subhanan Chanda stated in a press release on Tuesday.

This discounted rate will enable producers/ traders to transport their produce/ goods to various part of the country in a more reliable, faster and cheaper way. It is likely to provide them with a competitive edge in terms of timely and cost-effective delivery of their product/goods.  The time-tabled parcel train services were introduced during the nationwide lockdown to provide reliable time-bound services to courier services, e-commerce companies and other transporters.
