NEW DELHI : The Lucknow to New Delhi ticket prices for IRCTC's Tejas Express will be 1,125 for AC chair car and 2,310 for executive chair car, officials said on Friday.

While a ticket on the reverse journey will cost 1,280 for AC chair car passengers and 2,450 for those opting for executive chair car, they said.

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.

The train will cover the distance between Lucknow and Delhi in six hours and 15 minutes.

It will begin its journey from Lucknow at 6.10 am, and reach Delhi at 12.25 p.m. with halts at Kanpur and Ghaziabad.

The New Delhi-Lucknow Tejas Express will be the first train of Indian Railways that will be fully run by its subsidiary IRCTC.

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.
