These emails were sent to the entire database of IRCTC. On Sunday, 13 December, the IRCTC clarified that it had not sent emails to any particular community, amid reports that the government is reaching out to Sikh farmers via emails.

“It may be informed to all that the comments of IRCTC have not been quoted correctly and the mails have been sent to all irrespective any particular community... This is not the first instance. Earlier also such activities have been undertaken by IRCTC to promote government welfare schemes in the public interest.”
