IRCTC is all set to start three star luxury trains from Secunderabad to Shirdi, Goa and Tirupati with the basic tariff structure of normal bus fares. The collaboratively decision was taken by Telangana State Tourism Development Corporation (TSTDC) Chairman - Pervaram Ramulu, IRCTC Chairman & Managing Director - A.K. Manocha and IRCTC Group General Manager - Smita Rawat on previous Wednesday.
The IRCTC group has also agreed to run Three Star luxury trains Bhadrachalam, Warangal and Basar within Telangana, and for group bookings from outside the State, to Warangal and Hyderabad. There are rumors also a Seven Star super luxury Maharaja Express train might be operating soon from Konkan to Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu, that passes through Secunderabad and Kazipet in Telangana. This will change the whole definition of Indian train travel.
