Lucknow-Delhi Tejas Express: Get ready to travel on IRCTC’s first private train! The much-awaited Lucknow-Delhi Tejas Express is all set to be flagged off on 4 October 2019 by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
The train will be operated by the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), with the corporation being responsible for both, running the train as well as fixing the fares. Apart from Lucknow-Delhi Tejas Express, Ahmedabad-Mumbai Tejas Express will also be operated by IRCTC in the coming months. Piyush Goyal-chaired Railway Ministry hopes that the success of this experiment will pave way for inviting more private operators in the future.
