New Delhi: A distinct new logo of Indian
Railways which will be prominently featured on Commonwealth
Games tickets and other related events of the biggest sporting
extravaganza in the country has been finalised.

The logo will feature in the Games` tickets and on the
special train which railways will flag off soon to promote the
event that begins in October, a Railway Ministry official
said.

While Railways is the lead partner of the Commonwealth
Games, the IRCTC has bagged the contract for selling the
event`s tickets online including the inaugural and closing
ceremony.

To select the logo, Indian Railways recently held a
competition offering a prize of Rs five lakhs for the selected
design.

The new logo represents the uniqueness and vision
of Indian Railways, said the official, adding, it is
innovative in nature and has a special recall value.

The Indian Railways original logo depicts a steam
engine and the emblem of India with 16 stars surrounding
representing 16 Railway zones.
