Posted on February 15, 2021 by

Due to the suspension of the New Delhi – Varanasi based, Bharat Express for 45 days, the railway authorities have decided to replace it with Tejas Express that would start on with its journey from February 15 – March 31, 2021. Such was the announcement made by Northern Railways CPRO, Deepak Kumar in a letter to a leading newspaper.
As per the reports, instead of being operated by the private players, the Tejas Express shall be operated on this route by the Indian Railways. In addition to this, the fares of this train will be much lesser than that of Vande Bharat Express.
Our respectable Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has inaugurated the Vande Bharat Express on February 15, 2019. Just after a couple of days, the train started on with its commercial operation from New Delhi to Varanasi.
Within 8 hours, the train from Delhi reaches Varanasi and is operative every day except on Mondays and Thursdays.
By the way, the Tejas Express is the first semi – high speed and fully air-conditioned train operating in India and managed by the IRCTC. It is reportedly one of the fastest trains running in India.
According to a report from TOI, the Tejas Express will start on with its service from February 14, 2021 on the Mumbai Central – Ahmedabad and Lucknow – New Delhi route.
As a safety measure during this pandemic time, passengers boarding the train shall be thermally screened and it made mandatory to wear face masks.
