Tejas Train: In 3 years, there is a loss of 63 crores due to Tejas train, 200 seats are left vacant every day

Indian Railways Running Status : Indian Railways has suffered a loss of Rs 63 crore from one of its trains. Let us tell you that this train running from Delhi was handed over to private operators for the first time 3 years ago. But this experiment of railways was not successful. Railway has suffered a lot.

200 seats remained vacant daily
At present, Tejas trains are operated between Delhi to Lucknow and Mumbai to Ahmedabad. Both these trains are continuously running in loss. Delhi to Lucknow via Kanpur Central Tejas train is in loss of 27.52 crores. Due to continuous losses and non-availability of passengers, the rounds of Tejas day have also been reduced. Earlier it used to run 6 days a week, but now it runs only for 4 days. Not only this, 200 to 250 seats are left vacant in this train every day.

this is the reason
Rajdhani and Shatabdi run ahead of Tejas. Although their fare is less than Tejas, but in terms of facilities, they are not less than Tejas. In such a situation, people keep Tejas as an option. Due to the continuous damage to the train with the private operators, the Railways has not given any other train to the private operator at present.

see how much loss
The frequency of Tejas has reduced significantly since Corona. Its operation has also been temporarily stopped 5 times between 2019 and 2022 due to less passenger. Tejas made a profit of 2.33 crores in 2019-20 on the Lucknow-New Delhi route. After this, there has been a loss of Rs 16.69 crore in 2020-21 and Rs 8.50 crore in the year 2021-22.

Why has there been a loss
IRCTC was given the responsibility of operating the Ahmedabad-Mumbai and Lucknow-Delhi Tejas trains on behalf of the Railways in 2019. In 3 years, the loss of both the trains increased to Rs 62.88 crore.
