The Golden Chariot is now ready again to hit the tracks in a new vibrant look and feel on an exciting week long itinerary.

    According to press release issued by WR CPRO Ravinder Bhakar, IRCTC has undertaken the operations, management and marketing of this prestigious train in November, 2019 and has given a makeover befitting the taste of international train travel enthusiasts. To add to the guests’ comforts, the train now boasts of several new features including newly upholstered furniture, elegant drapery, renovated rooms and bathrooms, crockery and cutlery of reputed international brands and fresh linen.
