Mumbai-Ahmedabad Tejas Express to halt at Borivli, three more stations
MUMBAI: The Railway Board decided to include Borivli and three other stations as halts for the private Tejas Express that will operate between Mumbai and Ahmedabad from next month. While the initial plan was to have just two stops, Surat and Vadodara, a circular issued by the board says that the train will also halt at Borivli, Vapi, Bharuch and Nadiad, apart from the two planned halts.
The train, which is on lease by IRCTC and will have its inaugural run on January 17, will depart from Mumbai Central 3.40pm and arrive at Borivli at 4.14pm, where it will halt for two minutes. It will have its second halt at Vapi at 5.37pm, third at Surat at 6.47pm, fourth at Bharuch at 7.29pm, and then Vadodara at 8.18pm. Before its arrival at Ahmedabad at 9.55pm, it will stop at Nadiad at 9.03pm. The train’s return journey from Ahmedabad begins at 6.40am, and arrives at Mumbai Central at 1.10pm.
Sources said the board was considering a passenger refund scheme, where a portion of the fare is refunded if the train is delayed. For the first private Tejas train, between Delhi and Lucknow, IRCTC had formulated a policy where Rs 100 was refunded if the delay was more than an hour, and Rs 250 for more than two hours. A similar plan is being looked at for the Mumbai-Ahmedabad Tejas, the sources said.
