It must be good news for the passengers of Indian Railways as Indian Railways Minister Piyush Goyal has announced to start a new train i.e. new Rajdhani Expresses soon.

 

 

The new train will start on the route between Delhi to Mumbai which will also cover the Kalyan, Nasik and Khandwa in the Central Railway zone in Maharashtra, Railways Minister Piyush Goyal said Thursday.

Reportedly, this will be the first such train that will be passing through the central zone and covering Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT), Kalyan, Nasik, Jalgaon, Khandwa, Bhopal, Jhansi, Agra, and Hazrat Nizamuddin, PTI reported.
