Chandigarh-Delhi Shatabdi trains to be revamped under Project Swarn

Targeting the festive season which begins from October, railways have launched a three-month program under Project Swarn to revamp coach interiors, improving toilets and cleanliness in coaches. Chandigarh-Delhi Shatabdi comes under the ambit of the Project. Indian Railways have undertaken a complete makeover exercise in 30 trains including 15 Rajdhanis and 15 Shatabdis at an estimated cost of Rs 25 crore.

The project Swarn has been launched with a three month deadline and the project will commenced from July. The project has been launched with a view to improve the filthy conditions of toilets and interiors of the coaches. Under Project Swarn, the Railways are going to train their staff on hygiene and use of trolley for serving food. A new uniform has been designed for staff in the premier trains. Passengers will be offered films, serials and music among other facilities as an on-board entertainment package.

The Department of Railways has placed Shatabdis and Rajdhani Express trains of India in the premier train category, but at present these trains have lost their charm as far as sanitation is concerned. 

The Shatabdi trains that are going to get revamped are New Delhi-Chandigarh, New-Delhi to Amritsar, New Delhi-Kanpur, Anand Vihar-Kathgodam, Howrah-Ranchi, Howrah-Puri. And the Rajdhani trains that are defined for the makeover ply on alignments of Howrah, Ranchi, Bhubaneshwar, Patna and Mumbai.
