The Mumbai-Goa Tejas Express will no longer have any infotainment, a Hindustan Times report said on Wednesday.
According to the report, railway authorities were disgusted with the way passengers would handle the amenities provided to them.
On February 7, the railway ministry issued a circular to all zonal railways after receiving complaints on back-mounted infotainment screens on coaches. “The matter was examined in Railway Board and following instructions are issued. Individual seat-mounted infotainment system to be discontinued in the existing coaches as well as the new manufacture,” said the circular.

a high speed train with a speed of 200 kmph, Tejas Express was launched amidst much fanfare. This semi-luxurious train was flagged off to Goa on Monday (May 22) from Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Mumbai and returned from its trip on May 23.
The train, also hailed as 'aeroplane running on the ground' is equipped with modern amenities like LCDs, WiFi, tea and coffee-vending machines, CCTVs, bio toilets and touch-less taps and runs at the speed of 200 kmph.
However, it seems like we Indians don't know how to use things in a civil manner. On its maiden journey from Mumbai to Goa, train windows were smashed, headphones were stolen and the toilets were soiled.
The passenger association, however, demanded that the fares for the train be reduced as the amenities were being removed. ““People die on tracks every day. Does the railways stop the Mumbai suburban services? The railways should repair the damaged screens instead of removing them. The LCD screens were one of the prime attractions of the train. The railways should reduce the train fare,” said Subhash Gupta, president of Rail Yatri Parishad, while speaking to Hindustan Times.
