Railway administration is preparing to run a large number of private trains. Private trains will run through Raipur. A proposal to run private trains from Nagpur, Raipur and Bilaspur divisions is being prepared due to Mumbai-Howrah main route. Railway board is preparing information about several busy routes. For this, data of estimated number of passengers from different zones and mandals are also being sought. This route also includes Bilaspur to New Delhi and Howrah-Mumbai via Raipur-Bilaspur railway station, from where private trains will run.

IRCTC is conducting survey
on which routes private trains are to run, for this (Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation) IRCTC is also surveying. Let me tell you that last year IRCTC started operating the first private train between Lucknow to Delhi as Tejas Express. Railway officials said that the objective of this scheme is to reduce the cost of maintenance in the railway, to travel more distances in less time and also to facilitate new technology. It is being claimed that the operation of private trains will increase job opportunities and provide better security.

The work of the third line
on the fast Mumbai Howrah route, the speed of private trains running through Raipur will be higher than regular trains. Private trains will be LHB coaches and have a speed of over 140-150 km / h. For this reason, the third line from Nagpur to Raipur to Bilaspur and Jharsuguda is being specially strengthened, so that trains can be increased at high speed. Raipur Railway Division is also upgrading its share of the track.

be such that the Tejas and Vandebharat trains run by IRCTC have replaced their employees in place of TTE. The 109 pair routes will be in 12 clusters on the Indian railway network. Each train will have at least 16 coaches. According to Railways, most of these modern trains will be built in India under Make in India. Private companies will be responsible for the maintenance of trains. Under this, the railways have also selected the route of the country. According to the information received, for 35 years this project will be given to railway private companies. All trains will have drivers and guards from the railway.
