Mumbai local trains are not restarting anytime soon as there is no possibility of maintaining social distance and other safety norms.
Maharastra government started reopening a few things gradually. Thackeray said that once opened; it shouldn't be shut again, preferring to take steps in phases. He also added that he couldn't just think about the economy or health in isolation, and there needs to be a balance between the two. The relaxations will be offered on a case-to-case basis.
On questioned about when suburban trains would resume for the locals, he replied that there is a high possibility of families of many people falling sick and that everything would be done step-by-step.
The CM released the directives for phased reopening and activities permitted for functioning on July 29, 2020, and local trains are not among them.
