Extra BEST buses plied to and fro from various points like Dadar, Matunga, Kurla, Sion and other stations.

Policemen had tried to remove the protesters from the tracks and even used batons as students refused to budge, holding up placards and shouting slogans demanding jobs in the railways, one of the largest public sector employers in India.

"Agitators have called off their protest and further discussions will be held", Goyal said.

With the strike by the drivers of app-based taxis on Monday, more than 4.5 million commuters had to face problems for the second consecutive day. They have now called-off their rail-blockade agitation.

The protests were carried out by the activists of the All India Act Apprentice Association (AAAAA). Some retaliated by pelting stones at the police. Reportedly, five persons and a few police personnel were injured in the scuffle. While this food bill policy will be applicable in all trains from March 31 this year, the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has already started publicising this message through their ticket booking website.

After the rail services were halted by the railway job aspirants, Minister of Railways, Piyush Goyal on Tuesday said that Indian Railways has made a recruitment policy that is unbiased and transparent.

Shiv Sena MP from Mumbai Rahul Shewale met top CR officials to resolve the situation and later said that the railways would hire over 12,400 candidates who have cleared the AIRAA exams. "We have readied 120 officials to man the trains and in some time we are going to put in place more people on inspection duty to gradually man every train during food service time".

Attempting to restore normalcy, the local police resorted to a mild lathi-charge to disperse the protestors.

Burmese transport minister Thant Sin Maung said that he hoped the two countries could build on their cooperation and aimed to accept an offer from Indian Railways for signalling and telecommunication training.
