NEWDELHI: Con­sent of states where trains fer­ry­ing mi­grants ter­mi­nate is not needed to run the spe­cial Shramik trains, the govern­ment said on Tues­day, re­vers­ing an ear­lier or­der that called for mu­tual agree­ment of both send­ing and re­ceiv­ing states to trans­port labour­ers to their home­towns. The move came against the back­drop of dif­fer­ences be­tween the Cen­tre and some states over the run­ning of these trains.

It also came on a day when the Cen­tre is­sued a fresh set of guide­lines for op­er­at­ing the ser­vices, and said the trains will be per­mit­ted by the rail­way min­istry in con­sul­ta­tion with the home min­istry.
