The price for AC chair car tickets from Lucknow to Kanpur will be ₹320 and for executive chair car it will be ₹630, while the Lucknow to Ghaziabad fare will be ₹1,125 (AC chair car) and ₹2310 for executive chair car.
The AC chair car fare between Delhi and Kanpur will be ₹1,155 and for executive chair car it will be ₹2,155, the officials said.
However, the fares may vary along all sections since the train will operate on the flexi-fare scheme, they said.
Bringing in private train operators to provide world-class passenger service was a proposal mooted by the railways in its 100-day agenda as part of its move to hand over certain trains to private operators.
While the booking for the train began on Saturday, the train will begin operations from October 4.
