Antyodaya Express set for launch

Antyodaya Express, the new superfast train service for the common man with specially designed colourful coaches and comfortable seats, is ready for launch. The fully unreserved train is ready to be pressed into service on busy routes. The first Antyodaya Express will be launched between Mumbai and Tatanagar, and the second will be between Ernakulam and Howrah, shortly . The general class coaches with new colour schemes are equipped with facilities like LED lights, water purifiers, cellphone charging points and fire extinguishers.

The fare structure will be between 10-15% more than the regular fare as railways have maintained that manufacturing cost of these coaches is high. Provided with bio-toilets, Antyodaya coaches will have toilet occupation indication lights provided at each end near the doorway .
