Ahmedabad-Mumbai Tejas Express flagged off

The Ahmedabad-Mumbai Tejas Express was flagged off from Ahmedabad on Friday by Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, becoming the second semi high-speed train to be run by Railway subsidiary IRCTC.

The train departed from Ahmedabad at 10:45 am and will reach Mumbai in six-and-a-half hours.

This is the IRCTC's second premium train after the inaugural Tejas Express which operates between Delhi and Lucknow. The regular commercial run of the train will begin on January 19 from Ahmedabad, the Railways said.

The Tejas Express between Ahmedabad and Mumbai Central will run six days a week except on Thursday. The train will halt at Nadiad, Vadodara, Bharuch, Surat, Vapi and Borivali stations in both directions.

The train will have AC Chair Car Executive Class and AC Chair Car coaches.

Meals will be served to passengers by on-board service staff.
