Here are some other things to know about the Tejas Express service:
The Tejas Express trains were announced in the Rail Budget last year. Tejas Express will also run on the Delhi-Chandigarh and Surat-Mumbai routes, the Indian Railways has announced.
The trains will also offer on-board facilities such as wifi, tea and coffee vending machines, snack tables and magazines, besides entertainment and local cuisine.
Tejas will showcase the future of train travel in India, the railway minister had earlier said.
Catering service will be part of Tejas fares like Rajdhani and Shatabdi trains.
The Tejas Express will also serve choicest cuisine curated by celebrity chefs.
The newly-designed coaches are capable of running at 200 kmph. However, as the tracks cannot endure such high speed, it will be restricted to 160 kmph, RCF General Manager (GM) R P Nibaria told news agency Press Trust of India. Mr Nibaria also said he expects the Tejas Express to start operations by the end of this month. "The final decision will be taken by the Railway Board," the official said.
The new coaches are fitted with improved couplers that will make the journey jerk-free and comfortable at high speed, he added.
