New Delhi: Gatimaan Express, India’s fastest train, will extended to Gwalior & Jhansi. The Railway Board has taken a decision to extend the route of Gatimaan Express – which runs between Delhi & Agra at a speed of 160 kmph – to Gwalior and then to Jhansi, Railway Ministry officials said. On the new stretch, the train will run at a speed of 130 kmph and not at its original speed.

More Information:

  • Officials said,”The Agra-Gwalior-Jhansi route is fit for only 130 kmph only, so the train has to run at that speed.”
  • Ministry sources indicate that the trains extended run, expected to begin any day now, however, is stuck as the board is still contemplating the fare structure.
  • Currently, the fare for travelling in an executive class is Rs 1,505 and a booking for AC chair car costs Rs 755 between Delhi & Agra.
  • The board now faces two options:
  1. Either to reduce the ticket fare in lieu of the reduced speed on Agra-Gwalior-Jhansi stretch
  2. Stick with the structure for the better amenities it provides.

Gatimaan Express is equipped with modern amenities including-

  1. Bio-toilets
  2. Fire alarms
  3. GPS-based passenger information system
  4. Automatic sliding doors
  5. Free Wi-Fi Internet service
