The Mumbai-Goa Tejas Express, Railways’ newly launched high-speed semi-luxurious train, returned to the city with broken LED screens, missing headphones, and soiled toilets and floor, Deccan Chronicle reported on Thursday. The report says that authorities were shocked to see the mess on the train. They thereafter appealed to passengers to safeguard the Tejas Express and treat it like they would their own property. The superfast train, which covers the 630 km distance in less than nine hours, has high-end technical amenities on board like LED TV, Wi-Fi and CCTV. Train’s Executive Chair car seats have an adjustable headrest, comfortable arm supports, and is even offering airline-like leg support.

Another airline-like feature, Tejas Express coaches come with attendant call button facility for every seat. The call button/bell is integrated with the berth reading light. Minister of Railways, Suresh Prabhu, on Monday, had flagged off the much-talked about Tejas Superfast Express from Mumbai to Karmali in Goa. “Indian Railways has launched a major initiative to improve the safety of railway coaches. The railways will soon begin retrofitting of 40,000 coaches,” the minister was quoted as saying by PTI.

“After Humsafar, Antyodaya, Deen Dayalu it is now Tejas, all of which were promised in the previous budget. It is a high speed train with modern facilities on board, enhanced passenger comfort, and attractive exterior,” Prabhu said. “Tejas has bio-vacuum toilets, touchless taps and energy efficient LED lights,” he said. The minister added that coaches of the train have been manufactured at Rail Coach Factory in Kapurthala, Punjab, keeping in view the Make In India initiative of PM Narendra Modi.

    ,Railway property is public property and we are the public, we need all such things in our house. If your cctv cameras working catch us.if not go to hell. Rest ured this is Indian cultural it will not stop. But seats were reserved for someone then ask them. Otherwise your guests -like media person, local leaders whom you favoured, for first ride.

      I mean, is the silence of mute spectators any less tel ? Isn't it also a duty of right minded citizens to intervene and stop such nuisance?

        Not all the people are gentlemen unless there are policemen, While there will be many a people who will not vandalize the undefended public property, there will still be several who would be at the lower rungs of the civilization.How to deter them and such others who are capable of doing such acts? What about those who wouldn't have done such things themselves but had remained as mute spectators? Is their silence less tel ? With all these modern gadgetry around, was there also a provision of CCTV and the information to the travelers that CCTV surveillance is provided for their safety as well as for protection of Public Amenities? CCTV would help nab the wrong doers as also would help deter others if those who are caught are punished and "public display" of their "acts" is also arranged.
