New Delhi: Minister of Railways Suresh Prabhu while presenting Railway Budget 2016-17 in Parliament on Thursday said that ‘Humsafar’ and ‘Tejas’ will ensure cost recovery by way of tariff and non-tariff measures.
‘Humsafar’ would be fully air-conditioned third AC service with an optional service for meals.
‘Tejas’, on the other hand will showcase the future of train travel in India. Operating at speeds of 130 kmph and above, it will offer onboard services such as entertainment, local cuisine, Wi-Fi, etc. through one service provider for ensuring accountability and improved customer satisfaction.
He said that overnight double-decker, ‘Utkrisht Double-Decker Air-conditioned Yatri’ (UDAY) Express will be introduced on the busiest routes, which has the potential to increase carrying capacity by almost 40 percent.
