Indian Railways to launch New Tejas Service between Delhi and Dehradun

The Indian Railways is set to launch a New Tejas Express service between Delhi and Dehradun via Haridwar. An In Principal Agreement to start a Tejas Express train between Delhi-Haridwar-Dehradun has been given by Railway Minister Piyush Goyal on request by the Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, who met Goyal in Delhi over the matter, last week.

Tejas Express can touch a maximum speed of 160 km per hour and boasts of several modern features like swanky coaches and ergonomically designed seats. The Tejas Express train offers passengers with aircraft-like facilities such as baggage pick up, comfortable seats, on-board infotainment for passengers, modular bio-toilets, attendant calling buttons, tea and coffee vending machines, mobile charging points and CCTVs, reported Financial Express.

In January, Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani flagged off the Ahmedabad-Mumbai Tejas Express, the second semi high-speed train to be run by Railway subsidiary IRCTC.
