      Rajdhani Express is the premier superfast express of the Indian Railways. Started 40 years ago, this express connects the capital of India with other state capitals. I have travelled by this express quite a few times. The train is good and maintained in right spirit.

      Undoubtedly it is the best train of India. However, when you see the service and the fare that they take, it is a bit disappointing. Latest, I have travelled by the Rajdhani express from New Delhi to Patna.

      The train started at time and then there was a radio announcement that we will reach the destination at this point of time


      through taking haltage at the no. of stations. Then we were served a bottle of mineral bottle.

      The train started from New Delhi in the evening and we were expecting tea and some breakfast. Though due to some unknown reasons it got late and they served it only when we had already covered the distance of one hour. After serving the tea and a little bit of breakfast there was a silence as no one came to us to ask if they want anything more.

      I wanted a pillow and blanket to lie on the berth, I asked to them about this they replied that you ...


      • will find it only at eight that was still 2 hours ahead. There was no need to have some discussion with them. And I got the stuffs at exactly eight, though when all the commuters got it.

        Before serving the dinner one of the attendant asked politely with every commuter what they would like to have in the dinned that is whether they would like to have non veg or veg. accordingly we were served. The food was not as such bad but the quantity was certainly not sufficient.

        Surprisingly they will not give you if you want to get more of anything. Whether a child

        is travelling or a 30 plus person they assume that the appetite of all is equal. After the dinner we were served the ice-cream.

        I know the brand was the worst and the cheapest items available in the market. Any how we slept and they started to play an old Hindi song on the radio. Song was good but it was not welcome since we want to sleep.

        Any how we reached the destination, albeit a bit late. Nevertheless, this is a good train. I am complaining about them since they don’t provide what they charge.

        But it is the best available option in India and this makes it affordable.

    Yeah, you can have pets, but for that you are required to take special permission from the concerned authority. Further, you have to travel by the first AC to avail this facility. It is because in other class some other passengers will be sitting beside you and having a pet may give headache to them.

    Hi Mahbub,

    You don’t need to pay for your girl child (aged 3 years), if you can take her on your own bearth. However, you have to reserve a berth for your boy (aged 10 years). Here is the fare for your boy:

    1st Tier: Rs. 2310
    2nd Tier: Rs. 1380
    3rd Tier: Rs. 1035

    Please note, if you will get the ticket through irctc website, you need to shell out Rs. 20 more. Further, if you will reserve berth on Tatkal Scheme, you will have to pay a surcharge of Rs. 150.
