The trains will have to keep half of their seats vacant  

Trains will resume operations across the country from Thursday, Railway Minister Nurul Islam Sujon has said. 

Trains would be allowed to carry only half their passenger capacity in each compartment between July 15 and July 22, the minister told Dhaka Tribune on Monday. 

He also said tickets would only be available online from Tuesday and the remaining decisions would be taken according to the gazette notification.

The train services were suspended from July 1 amid the countrywide strict lockdown.
