Passengers onboard the 'Royal Rajasthan on Wheels' can now be connected with the rest of the world while on the move as the luxury train has been equipped with wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) system and satellite television.
Announcing this, Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation CMD Manjeet Singh told reporters here that the train, which was flagged off from Safdarjung railway station on Sunday for its first commercial trip of this year, includes several other new attractions for passengers like cultural programmes, and food served at five star hotels.
The new arrangements will ensure that passengers can see more sites than what was possible possible earlier. "The basic idea behind introduction the new attractions in the royal train is to give value to the money of passengers," Singh said.
There are plans to introduce spa facility also in the luxury train in next four months," he added.
During its week-long trip, the luxury train will cover Jaipur, Sawai Madhopur, Chittorgarh, Udaipur, Jaisalmer, Bharatpur and Agra, and will return to Delhi on October 25, Singh said.
A special concessional tariff on its fare has been offered to passengers this time following the market emerging from the economic slowdown, he said.
The fare, which was $2500 per suite per night, is now $1600. The fare, which was $200 per pax per night for single supplement, is now $825.
