We are ready to arrange as many journeys as possible on demand of our elders, but it depends on the availability of train. As part of the scheme of free pilgrimage for the elderly from Delhi, 11 train journeys were planned to different places of pilgrimage in January, but due to the third wave of corona virus, it was not possible.

Under this scheme, Delhi government has given Rs 81.45 crore out of which Rs 66.92 crore was spent in 2021-22. Officials said that so far about 38,000 senior citizens have got the benefit of this scheme.
