Those travelling on the special passenger trains being started by the Indian Railways from May 12 will have to carry their own food, blankets and bedsheets from home, The Indian Express has reported.
These trains, the booking for which will start at 4 pm today on the IRCTC website, are modeled along the lines of Rajdhani Express. However, these trains will not have the facilities that come along with the usual Rajdhanis. According to the newspaper, while pre-packed snacks and biscuits will be available, they will only be sold to those who need them.
According to the report, the only identical factors between these trains and normal Rajdhanis is the fare, the speed and the route.
