New Delhi, Nov 13 (PTI) Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will flag off Goa Rajdhani on November 15 from Madgaon, fulfilling a long standing demand from the state.
The first Rajdhani for Goa will be a bi-weekly service and leave from Nizamuddin station every Friday and Saturday and from every Sunday and Monday from Madgaon.
While Trivendrum Rajdhani goes to Madgaon, there was no separate Rajdhani service for Goa till date.
Rajdhani will be the 22nd Rajdhani service being launched by Railways across the country connecting state capitals with the national capital.
There was a great demand for a separate Goa Rajdhani and Railways decided to fulfill it, said a senior Railway Ministry official.
He said while the train will be flagged off on coming Sunday, the regular service will be started from Friday.
Keeping the upcoming Christmas and New Year celebrations in mind, Railways have launched the premier service ahead of festive season.
Goa witnesses heavy rush of tourists during the X-mas and yearend bash.
Since the train is leaving Delhi on Saturday, it is expected to be patronised by tourists, said the official.
There are about eight stoppages including Surat, Vadodara, Ratnagiri, Vasai Road between Nizamuddin and Madgaon in both directions.

This is indeed going to be a good option for travellers from goa, konkan bound for Delhi. TVC Rajdhani is already there 3 days a week. Now in addition to that Goa rajdhani 2 days so total 5 days in a week Rajdhani would be there from Goa to Delhi.

16 passengers of Janshatabdi Express injured in freak accident
MANGALURU: Sixteen passengers on board 12052 Karmali - Dadar Janshatabdi Express were injured when an earth excavator of a private stone quarry fell down from Kaswan-3 cutting between Sindhudurg and Kankavali stations on Sunday. This infringed the railway track and hit one AC chair car coach and two non-AC chair car coaches of the train resulting in 16 getting injured, three of them grievously and rest escaped with minor ones.
Konkan Railway immediately shifted the injured passengers to Government Hospital at
Kankavali. Konkan Railway officials rushed to the site and ensured early clearance of the railway track. The corporation has arranged ex-gratia payment to the injured passengers. As a result of the accident, train 10103 Mandovi Express was detained for an hour and train 10105 Diva-Sawantwadi passenger for an hour and fifty minutes.
The railway track was not affected due to the accident and train services have resumed. As per directives of Bhanu Prakash Tayal, chairman and managing director of KRCL, not only the section was cleared at the earliest but free train journey passes have been arranged for the families of injured passengers who wished to visit them at the hospital. KRCL is lodging a FIR against the stone quarry owner. Call 022 - 27587939 for train inquiry.
