4. Initiated many changes in the train
According to the experience of passengers, the railway ministry has made several changes in the train. Toilet facility is markedly improved from other trains. To provide better catering services, the ministry is also planning to provide a pantry car for the train. Even window glasses have also changed to prevent it from stone-pelting instances.
