Eid ul-Fitr 2024: Pakistan Railways Reduces Train Fares

Islamabad: Pakistan Railways has announced a 25% reduction in train fares for Eid ul-Fitr 2024 to facilitate workers and travelers to return home.

According to details, Pakistan Railways has announced a reduction in fares for three days of Eid ul-Fitr 2024, applicable to all passenger trains besides Eid Special trains.

Moreover, Pakistan Railways has unveiled plans to operate four special trains to accommodate passengers traveling to their hometowns to celebrate the joyous occasion.

According to Pakistan Railways, the first special train is scheduled to depart from Karachi for Peshawar on Sunday at 6 pm. This train will traverse through Multan and Faisalabad en route to Peshawar, providing a convenient travel option for passengers.

Simultaneously, the second Eid special train will set off from Quetta bound for Rawalpindi on Sunday at 10 am, offering travelers from Balochistan a direct route to the capital city.

Continuing the special Eid travel arrangements, the third special train will embark on its journey from Karachi to Lahore on April 8 at 9 pm. This train will pass through Multan and Sahiwal, facilitating passengers traveling between the two major cities.

Conversely, the fourth special train will depart from Lahore to Karachi at 5 pm on April 9, providing a return route for travelers heading back to Karachi after the Eid celebrations.

Before this, Pakistan Railways achieved a historic increase in its revenue as the income reached up to Rs. 66 billion in the first nine months of the fiscal year 2023-24.

The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee’s meeting to sight the Shawwal moon will be chaired today by Chairman Maulana Abdul Khabeer Azad in Islamabad.

The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has anticipated that the Shawwal moon is likely to be visible across the country on April 9, with the birth of the moon expected on the night of April 8 at 11:21 pm local time.

According to PMD, the birth of the Shawwal moon took place on the night of April 8 at 11:21 pm local time. Depending on the moon sighting, Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated either on April 10th or April 11th, bringing an end to the blessed holy month of Ramadan.

If the moon is sighted on April 9, Ramadan will consist of 29 days for Pakistanis in 2024 and Eid ul-Fitr will be celebrated on April 10. If the moon is not sighted on April 9 then Eid ul-Fitr would be celebrated on April 11.

It is worth noting that the Pakistani government has announced a four-day Eid holiday from April 10 to April 13.
