Its is premier train connecting two cities proposed to be named as 'Jai Hind' Express. In such a train the peculiar features are:
1) Dynamic pricing is followed. There's no fixed fare. As the availability decreases, fare increases. The base fare is the Tatkal fare of a Rajdhani type train on that stretch and it can go upto roughly 200% of this value.
2) Cost of catering is included in the fare.
The train will get unprecedented priority over all trains of the route.
4)More facilities may be provided in due course of time.
5) ARP is 15 days.
6) Tickets can't be cancelled. If cancelled, no refund is granted.
7) No concession is applicable.
8) No refund is given in any circumstance except if train is cancelled by railways.
9) Verdict on halts being either commercial of technical is not clearly out yet.
