Indian Railways to Run Mumbai-Delhi Rajdhani Special from December 30

Indian Railways will run a special Rajdhani train between Mumbai and Hazrat Nizamuddin (Delhi) four days a week. Central Railways (CR) had suspended its Mumbai-Delhi Rajdhani train after the outbreak of coronavirus in March.

“With adequate safety measures in place, this will enhance passenger convenience & facilitate smooth travel for the people,” Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said in a Twitter post.

The Rajdhani special train bearing number 01221 will leave the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) on every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 4.10 pm from December 30 and will reach Hazrat Nizamuddin at 11 am the next day, the Central Railways said.

A release from the CR further mentioned that 01222 Rajdhani special will leave Hazrat Nizamuddin at 4.55 pm on every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from December 31 and reach CSMT on the next day at 11.50 am.

Bookings for 01221 Rajdhani special train will open on December 25. Only passengers with confirmed tickets will be permitted to board these special trains, the CR said.
