Meanwhile, a senior Railways official has informed that efforts are on to launch the first indigenously-built Trainset Train 18 on December 25 from New Delhi to Varanasi.
“Christmas Day also happens to be the birthday of late Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee and it would be a tribute to the great statesman of the country if we manage to launch the next-generation train on that day,” a senior Railways official told IANS.
Since the input cost of the Rs 100-crore train is high, the fare structure will be also be higher than the normal fare, he added.
