The Indian Railways will run four special trains between Allahabad and Delhi to ferry delegates of the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas from the Kumbh Mela to the national capital for them to be a part of the Republic Day event. In a meeting, officials from the External Affairs and the Railway Ministry decided that 'Pravasi Bharti' trains will run on January 24 at between 7 pm to 12.50 am, referring to sources, news agency Press Trust of India has reported.

According to the report, the four trains will begin journeys from Allahabad -- the first one at 19:00 hours, the next at 20:15 hours, then at 22:00 hours and the last one at 00:50 hours. The last train will reach Delhi by 13:30 pm on January 25.

The Indian Railways will convert all third AC coaches of the special trains to second AC for providing more comfort to delegates.

The 15th Pravasi Bhartiya Divas will be held in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's constituency Varanasi from January 21 to 23.

The Indian diaspora attending the event will get an opportunity to participate in the 'Kumbh Snan', arrangements for which have been made at the sangam. Those interested in participating in the holy bath have to register on the Pravasi Bhartiya Divas website.
