NEW DELHI: A special train for cricket fans travelling from New Delhi to Ahmedabad for the Cricket World Cup is being run on November 18 by the Indian Railways.
This initiative comes as a relief for fans who were grappling with exorbitant airfares, ranging between Rs 20,000 to Rs 40,000.
The final showdown, featuring the cricketing giants India and Australia, will be held on November 19, at the Narendra Modi Stadium.
The train offers seats at a much lower price than the airfare, with prices ranging from Rs 620 for a sleeper seat to Rs 3490 for a 1st AC seat. The 3AC economy and 3AC seats are priced at Rs 1525 and Rs 1665, respectively.
The train will depart from Delhi on November 18 evening and reach Ahmedabad the next day morning. After the match, the train will depart from Ahmedabad at 2:30 am for Delhi.
In addition to this train, three similar trains are being run between Mumbai and Ahmedabad.
