The train reached CST on Sunday to begin its maiden journey on Monday. This incident happened when the train left the Rail Coach Factory in Kapurthala on Thursday.

Tejas Express also boasts many modern facilities like LED TV and tea/coffee vending machines.

Since the train is equipped with better facilities, the fare will be slightly higher than normal mail and express service, Mr. Prabhu said while inspecting the Tejas coaches here on Friday.

Travellers will have to shell out more than 20 per cent more in base fare compared to Shatabdi Express, news agency Press Trust of India reported quoting a railway ministry official.

Railways will also provide magazines, snack tables.

The fares for monsoon and non-monsoon seasons will be different and Tejas will run three days a week during monsoons and five days a week in the non-monsoon season. Speed potential of 200 kmph was achieved by providing steel brake disc, sintered pads, electro-pneumatic assist brake system. Automatic entrance door will be provided in the coaches and this will be the first in non-suburban train in Indian Railways. On the other hand, a seat in the air-conditioned chair vehicle costs Rs 1,280 with food and Rs 1,155 without.
