The railways have also reinstated 141 short distance passenger trains by Mainline Electric Multiple Units (MEMUs) and Diesel Electric Multiple Units (DEMUs) in 2018-19. This is set out to increase the entire movement of the railway system in India. The movement of 27 couples of trains is said to be vindicated with the assistance of neighboring/satellite terminals.
