Here are some new rules that you must be aware of:
1. The reservation chart from October 10 will be prepared 30 minutes before the train departure instead of 2 hours. This system was normal before COVID. But as COVID happened, anyone traveling on special trains was asked to arrive at the station at least one hour prior to train departure thus the chart was also prepared accordingly.

2. Now that the chart will be prepared before 30 minutes of train departure, seats will be available even five minutes before the train leaves the station. As of tomorrow, these charts will be prepared between 30 minutes to 5 minutes before the scheduled departure, tickets can be booked during this time.
