Ticket prices reduced for India’s fastest train
February 13, 2019
The fastest train of the country- Vande Bharat Express or Train 18 is all set to leave for its first journey on 15 February, 2019.
The journey of India's first engine-less train will be between Delhi and Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh. As per reports, the ticket prices of the train have been slashed by the railways.
The previously set price for travelling in AC chair car has been reduced from Rs 1,850 to Rs 1,760. While, executive class tickets will now be available for Rs 3,310 instead of Rs 3,520.
These prices include the food that will be served to the passengers during the journey. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will flag off the train from New Delhi. Train 18 is expected to cover a distance of around 755 km in 8 hours.
Some people are happy to know the trip will now cost even less while some are skeptical.
Vikrant Yadav @vik21_yadav tweeted," Replying to @ippatel Vande Bharat Express's fair is much cheaper than Volvo buses. Congis & Commies couldn't digest this train, that's why they tried to stone the train. Waiting for some negative comments over ticket pricing by those who never travel without UBER & OLA."
