First Premium Train in IR with Dynamic Fare structure!!
All information regarding this new concept:
With a view to meeting the peak demand for travel on the eve of Christmas/New Year, Indian Railways
proposes to operate a few trips of premium Air-conditioned special trains on the busy New Delhi-Mumbai sector between 24th December 2013 to 2nd Jan 2014.
The advance reservation period will be shorter, that is a maximum of 15 days, and the fare shall be equal to or higher than the Rajdhani Tatkal fare. The fare is also likely to increase depending on the demand intensity.
The premium A/C special trains no. 22913/22914 shall operate on an experimental basis on the following dates to being with:

Ex-New Delhi
Ex-Mumbai Central
24th Dec 2013
26th Dec 2013
27th Dec 2013
29th Dec 2013
30th Dec 2013
01st Jan 2013
02nd Jan 2013

The booking shall commence on 21st December 2013.
The timings of the train will be as under:
Dep: New Delhi
Dep: Mumbai Central
Arr: Mumbai Central
Arr. New Delhi

There will be no commercial stoppages enroute for this train. The trains shall originate and terminate at New Delhi and Mumbai Central stations. There will be only two classes of travel accommodation, viz AC-3 Tier and AC-2 Tier. Catering shall be provided on-board and catering charges shall be part of tariff. As the train is designed to clear the last minute peak time demand and has no stoppages enroute, no concession shall be applicable to this train. No waitlisted tickets shall be issued. There will be no refund except when the train is cancelled on railway account due to unforeseen circumstances or due to severe disturbances affecting operations. The booking shall be available only through internet, that is IRCTC’s portal and not through the counters at reservation centres. The passengers are required to carry the prescribed original photo identity card which is used at the time of booking. The fares applicable for each day/transaction shall be indicated at the time of booking on the IRCTC’s e-ticketing website.
The trains will be monitored closely by Zonal Railways for ensuring adherence to schedule...

Tickets will only be available on IRCTC,
Another catch of this scheme is that you will come to the know of the fare payment only AFTER you fill the reservation form, Pls go through the salient features of this scheme and carefully book the tickets because once booked they cannot be cancelled as well...
