IRCTC makes travelling in luxury saloon coaches a reality for common man
IRCTC has come up with its first air-conditioned saloon coach. These coaches can now be chartered by the common man to enjoy comfortable and luxurious travelling.
The decision came into action after a meeting, where the matter of promoting the use of luxurious saloons for common public was raised. Analyzing the demand for such kind of travel, Mr. Ashwani Lohani, chief of railway board, suggested the need of at least two saloon coaches.
Earlier, the British emperors in India used the saloon coaches. After Independence, top railway officials in the ranks of divisional railway managers and above, zonal general managers and rail-road committee members were authorized to use them for official purpose. But now, even the common persons can also charter these coaches by paying an amount of 2 lacs.
IRCTC made a statement that the all-inclusive tour will offer its guests all the comforts of a hotel. Exclusive staff will be readily available for providing services onboard. A saloon attendant and an AC attendant will also be present to ensure hassle free travel.
As per the report by Press Trust of India, 62 out of the 336 saloon cars are air-conditioned. Common people can now charter these saloon and browse through our website for further details. https://www.indianluxurytrains.com/
