Humsafar trains will be equipped with CCTV cam eras, GPS-based passenger information system, and mobile, laptop charging points with every berth, among other features.
Besides, the trains will also boast of better aesthetics, with a new interior and exterior colour scheme and the vinyl sheets similar to those used in the luxury Maharaja Express aimed at presenting a futuristic look. They will also have integrated braille displays.
“Since the train is a special class service with many modern facilities, it has cost the railways more. So, the fare will accordingly be on the higher side to meet the additional cost,“ said the official.
