Chhath Puja is a traditional Hindu festival, especially celebrated in the states on Bihar, Jharkhand, Eastern Uttar Pradesh and in some parts of Nepal. The festival is dedicated to Lord Surya (Sun) and Chhathi Maiya, who is known to be the sister of Surya. The God of light, power and energy is worshipped in order to promote well being and prosperity among humans. The devotees observe fast for four days and aim towards thanking the Sun God.

But keeping the festive season in mind, like every year, people are rushing for the tickets. Almost all the trains are full. Passengers going home are forced to board private buses by paying double and triple fare. For the convenience of passengers, Northern Railway Division of Indian Railways have announced to run special trains on Chhath Puja on special routes including Delhi, Kanpur, Lucknow, Allahabad, Varanasi, Patna, Muzaffarpur, Darbhanga and Bhagalpur.

Here is a list of trains that one can board for going home this Chhath Puja:
