NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): To give concerted thrust to efforts for the promotion of rail-based tourism through providing better quality coaches and viable tour packages, the Bharat Gaurav Trains Scheme has been reviewed.

Salient Features of Revised Policy:

  • Henceforth, only Linke Hofmann Busch ( LHB) coaches will be allotted under the Bharat Gaurav Trains scheme.
  • In the interest of the promotion of rail tourism and the viability of the product, the Ministry of Railways has decided not to levy the overhead components in the Fixed and Variable Haulage Charges for the operation of Bharat Gaurav Trains under the scheme. This would entail approximately 33% concession by IR for the promotion of rail tourism under the Bharat Gaurav Trains Scheme.
  • The existing service providers, who have already been allotted ICF rakes under the Bharat Gaurav Trains Policy, would be allowed to switch to LHB  rakes for the remaining agreement period on the revised charges. However, if they opt to continue with allotted rakes, the benefit of revised charges would be available with future effect.
  • The applicable revised charges have been notified.
