Railways launch project ‘Swarn’ for Rajdhani & Shatabdi trains

Rajdhani Express

Indian Railways has introduced some changes in Rajdhani and Shatabdi trains from October this year. Trolley service for catering, polite uniformed staff, and onboard entertainment are some of the changes that will be covered in the express trains. Also, new uniform has been designed for the staff in the premier trains.

To enhance the experience of passengers,  the Indian Railways has undertaken a complete makeover exercise in 30 trains which includes 15 Rajdhani and 15 Shatabdi trains at an estimated cost of ₹25 crores. Railways have launched a three-month program under Project Swarn to refurbish coach interiors, improving toilets and cleanliness in coaches.

Before the festive season, Railways have launched a three-month program under Project Swarn to refurbish coach interiors, improving toilets and cleanliness in coaches. The decision was made as many passengers have lodged complaints pertaining to catering, punctuality, toilet cleanliness and quality of linen among others in these trains. This project also focuses on strengthening of the security system in trains with adequate escort personnel by RPF.

Rajdhani Express meant for Mumbai, Howrah, Patna, Ranchi, and Bhubaneswar are among the 15 Rajdhani trains selected for service upgradations. While Shatabdi trains of Howrah-Puri, New Delhi-Chandigarh, New Delhi-Kanpur, Howrah-Ranchi, Anand Vihar-Kathgodam are among the 15 trains selected for the makeover exercise.

Besides passengers will be offered films, serials, and music among other facilities as an on-board entertainment package.
