Tejas Express (All-AC chair car) has been defined as the future of rail travel in India by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu. Indian Railways has pitched the Tejas Express as a train that offers airline-like features. The train, with fares higher than Shatabdi, is part of the Railways strategy to generate more revenue by offering better passenger amenities.
Tejas Express: Within weeks of being launched, the swanky and luxurious Tejas Express has already got an exclusive engine! Locomotives are usually independent of trains and can be attached as the need arises. However, according to Anil Kumar Singh of Central Railways, Kalyan Diesel Loco shed has given the locomotive for Tejas a colour scheme to match the bright colour scheme of the

the Tejas Express coaches - making it exclusive to the train. We take a look at the bright and colourful engine and check out its features:

Getting powerful Diesel Loco to haul Tejas at 160kmph is not an issue at all, as WDP4 has already done 180 kmph during Talgo trials.
The real issue is to have/upgrade the tracks which can sustain the impact of Tejas at 160kmph.

May 25 2017 (13:44)   Tejas Express’ first trip: Passengers steal headphones, make it dirty

Entry# 2292398   News Entry# 303565         Tags   Past Edits
The Mumbai­Goa Tejas Superfast Express' maiden run on Monday has left Railway
Minister Suresh Prabhu understandably chuffed. What Prabhu probably doesn't know, and what has left the railway officials visibly sheepish, is the railway staff reporting that several headphones were stolen from the train during its very first journey. The impact of the thefts is such that on Wednesday ­ during the train's journey from Goa to Mumbai ­ a few passengers complained that they were not provided headphones at all.
Tejas, hailed as an "aeroplane moving on the ground" by the Central

railway top brass, boasts of amenities such as LED screens attached to seats, Wi­Fi, CCTV cameras, and tea/coffee vending machine. Capable of running at 200 kmph, the train covers the 552­km Mumbai­Goa journey within nine hours.
A senior railway official told Mumbai Mirror that "at least a dozen headphones" were missing from the train after Monday's journey. He also said a couple of LED screens had scratch marks on them."The headphones were distributed just after the journey commenced. There wasn't an announcement to return the headphones because we expected passengers to not carry them away, just like they don't take away pillows and blankets," the official said.
When asked the cost of a single headphone on board Tejas, the official merely said, "Not very expensive". The cheapest ticket on the 992 ­seat train costs Rs 1,185 (chair car, without food), and the most expensive is the executive class ticket at Rs 2,740.
The Central Railway's chief public relations officer, Narendra Patil, confirmed the railway staff reported that "a few headphones" were
missing from the train after Monday's journey.
Yesterday, a senior citizen on board the train's journey to Mumbai said he was not given headphones "despite several reminders".
Mahendra Barde, 62, who was travelling with wife, said, "I wanted to watch something on the screen but never got the headphones."
Several passengers also complained that the Wi­Fi on the train wasn't active.
The railway officials said not much should be looked into these incidents. "These are teething troubles that will be sorted out within a few
days. We need to celebrate a train that will eventually change the way India travels," the official said.

The railways will increase 3AC coaches in long distance trains to cater to the growing demand for air-conditioned coaches.
Railway data shows that between April 1, 2016 and March 10, 2017, 3AC coaches carried 17 per cent of all passengers in long-distance trains which accounted for 32.60 per cent of all the earnings from passenger fares.
The data shows increasing demand for 3AC class with passenger share rising from 16.69 per cent last year to 17.15 per cent, and passenenger share rising from 16.69 per cent last year to 17.15 per

cent, and passenger earnings increasing from 32.60 per cent last year to 33.65 per cent between April 1, 2016 and March 10, 2017.
Sleeper class carried 59.78 per cent passengers and contributed about 44.78 per cent of passenger earnings. Last year the share of sleeper coaches was over 60 per cent of passengers and 45.94 per cent of earnings.
The predominance of sleeper passengers is showing a downward trend as more and more passengers are opting for 3AC class, said a senior Railway Ministry official.
The official said a decision has been taken to augment 3AC coaches gradually in some long distance trains.

3AC fares should not be more than twice of the Sleeper class fares.
During night reduce the temperatures from 27 degree to 23 degree only.
For this temperature control 3 times of sleeper fares are unwarranted.
Moreover in our Tropical country surcharges for AC also unwarranted.

So in the GST requested our PM ,FM and RM that AC surcharges for train travel have to be totally withdrawn.
