The operation of Tejas Express, the country’s first private train between Coronavirus, is currently being stopped. Actually, due to Kovid-19, there was less ticket booking, due to which the train was running in deficit. The operation of Tejas Express between New Delhi to Lucknow is closed from November 23, while the operation of Tejas Express between Ahmedabad to Mumbai will stop from November 24. Let me tell you that earlier in March this year, Tejas was closed.
Behind the closure, there is less booking between Kovid. Actually, Tejas can seat about 726 passengers, but according to sources, only 60 to 70 tickets were being booked everyday. Due to this loss, it has been decided to put Tejas in the yard. The cost of running the Tejas train once comes to about Rs 15 to 16 lakhs. The Tejas train is the first private train operated by IRCTC.
Apart from this, the stalled railway services in Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir are being partially started from Monday. Trains will run partially in both states. It is known that currently 8 trains will run for Punjab and 9 trains will run for Jammu and Katra. Please tell that the operation of trains has been disrupted for 55 days.
