The first Rajdhani Express left New Delhi in 1969 and reached Howrah station in 17 hours and 20 minutes. Compared to other contemporary trains, this train took 40% less time and immediately acquired a celebrity status, all over the country.
Likewise, Shatabdi Express was introduced in 1988 and acquired a cult status due to their efficiency and speed. While Rajdhani Express was launched to link all state capitals of India, and the first train ran at 140 km/hr speed; Shatabdi Express was meant to connect important cities of India, and was designed to run at 130 km/hr speed.
with time, these two icons of Indian Railways was ignored, and as a result, the fans of these trains felt dejected.
Recently, when Tejas Express was launched, the fares were set 20% more than these trains, which angered a section of passengers.
Thankfully, Indian Railways have taken note of this, and have taken steps to improve the condition.
As per reports coming in, a budget of Rs 50 lakh per train (each Shatabdi and Rajdhani Express)has been allocated, under Project Swarn, whose aim would be to improve and optimise these trains.
A senior Railways Official said, “The Railways have decided to launch Operation Swarn (or ‘gold’) to refurbish its services after several complaints by passengers like delay in train arrival, sanitation and quality of food.”
Mission To Improve Shatabdi And Rajdhani
In the first phase of Project Swarn (which means Gold), Mumbai-Delhi Rajdhani Express and Mumbai-Ahmedabad Shatabdi Express has been chosen for renovation and improvement.
Under this Project, 10 key areas of customer satisfaction would be chosen: punctuality, cleanliness, linen, coach interiors, toilets, catering, staff behaviour, security, entertainment, housekeeping and regular feedback.
To monitor the spending of Rs 50 lakh, two separate committees have been formed, which will make daily reports on the improvements.
Shatabdi/Rajdhani Will Beat Tejas, Humsafar Express?
Fans of Shatabdi and Rajdhani have decided that no longer these trains would be judged as inferior to Tejas Express or Humsafar Express, which have been launched recently with some additional features and services.
For instance, Tejas Express has LCD Screens, coffee vending machines, automatic doors, fire repression system, bio-vacuum toilets, attendant call buttons, reading LED lights, and others features.
Mahamana Express has ergonomically designed ladders for climbing to upper berth and more.
Now, these same upgraded services would be introduced in Shatabdi and Rajdhani Express as well, providing them with much-needed makeover and push.

Do you think that Shatabdi and Rajdhani Express would be able to regain their #1 position? Do let us know by commenting right here!

Later this month, Indian Railways will propose reducing the minimum travel time of the Delhi-Mumbai and Delhi-Howrah lines from 17 hours to 12.
The plan would make each line the fastest in India, running at top speeds of 200 kilometres per hour. The Gatimaan, which runs from Delhi to Agra, is currently number one with a maximum speed of 160 km/h.
The average speed of many Indian trains is slower by over 100 km/h. According to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the premier Rajdhani trains currently average around 75 km/h;
the prevalent Express and Mail trains trundle along at 52 km/h; and freight trains are not even half as fast as that, averaging only 22 km/h.
Significantly, the proposal of the new plan is taking the official form of a cabinet note. In the past, hundreds of projects have been announced in railway budget speeches but have languished without approval by the cabinet. An estimated 394 rail projects worth nearly five lakh crore are pending.
According to Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu, implementation of the new plan will begin in January 2018 and take two to three years. An official who was not authorized to speak to the media reckoned that the project will cost Rs 18,163 crore. The Railways will focus on improving the electrical systems that direct trains and on civil engineering projects such as the lifting of tracks and the construction of new fences.
Ultimately, the government hopes to run faster trains throughout the ‘Golden Quadrilateral’, which also includes the Delhi-Chennai and Mumbai-Kolkata lines.
Of the 9,100 kilometers on the Golden Quadrilateral, the tracks along 6,400 kilometers (70% of the total) do not have the capacity to run trains at 130 km/h. Speed restrictions are in effect at 730 locations. These stretches have 2,736 level crossings. “We are working at eliminating these obstacles,” said a ministry official .
Britain has had trains going 200 km/h since 1976, and France is expecting this summer to start running trains that hit and go above 300 km/h. The fastest commercial train in the world, the Shanghai Maglev, tops out at 430km/h. Despite the considerable size and importance of the railways in India, they have been unable to keep up with the standards set by some other Asian nations and by Europe.

Kochi got its metro on Saturday after Prime Minister Narendra Modi dedicated the first phase of the rail service to the nation. A long-cherished project of Keralites, the foundation of Kochi Metro was laid by then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on September 13, 2012. So, in less than 5 years Kochi Metro became operational but reportedly the Indian Railways is unhappy with the pace of work in Kolkata Metro. According to a report in TOI, the average fund allocation for Kolkata Metro is just around Rs 400 crore every year for the past three years.
The Times of India quoting a top railway ministry source has reported that with the current pace of spending and execution, it will take another 17 years
for the Kolkata Metro project to reach its completion. The estimated cost of 64 km of the new Metro corridor was around Rs 8,639 crore, but the total spending on the project till date is just Rs 2,018 crore in the last seven years that is mere Rs 288 crore a year, according to TOI.
The Kolkata Metro rail corridor was announced in the Rail Budget 2010-11 by then railway minister Mamata Baneerjee.
Bengaluru’s Namma Metro, cleared in 2006, has been running three years behind its schedule as it was supposed to be completed in 2014, according to a report in NDTV.
Inaugurated by PM Modi, Kochi Metro, the flagship transportation infrastructure project of Kerala, will start its regular operations from June 19. After cutting the ribbon at the Palarivattom station, PM Modi shook hands with the Kerala CM and Sreedharan before proceeding to board the metro train.
During the journey, PM Modi waved at the crowd as Sreedharan and Kochi Metro Rail Ltd Managing Director Elias George interacted with him.
The estimated completed cost of the metro touched Rs 5,181.79 crore. The foundation of Kochi Metro was laid by then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on September 13, 2012. It will improve regional connectivity and reduce traffic congestion.
