It is the first private train in the country to be fully operated by IRCTC. Passengers traveling from Tejas on Friday did not get entry from the cab-way but had to enter through the main gate of the station. On this occasion, CM Yogi congratulated the first passengers to travel in Tejas. He said that this is the first corporate train to see. I hope that more such steps will be taken so that other cities can be connected through this medium.
