Services were stopped after the Centre decided to revoke J&K’s special status

Train services in Kashmir will resume on Tuesday, the Railway Ministry said here on Monday.

The services were stopped nearly three months ago, following the Union government’s decision to withdraw the special status granted to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 and divide the State into two Union Territories.
