PM Modi flags off Kashi Mahakal Express connecting three Jyotirlings in Varanasi

The Kashi Mahakal Express is the third private train to be launched by IRCTC.

The Kashi Mahakal Express was flagged off by Prime Minister Narendra Modi today. It is the third private train that is launched by the Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) after the successful run of the two Tejas Express trains between New Delhi-Lucknow and Mumbai-Ahmedabad.

The Kashi Mahakal Express train will run between Indore and Varanasi and connect the three Jyotirling pilgrimage centers of Omkareshwar (near Indore in Madhya Pradesh), Mahakaleshwar (Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh) and Kashi Vishwanath (Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh).

The train will have two routes. The service through the Sultanpur-Lucknow route will be bi-weekly and though Prayagraj, it will be a weekly train. The train via the first route will make a stop at Bina, Jhansi, Kanpur, Ujjain, Sant Hirdaram Nagar, Lucknow and Sultanpur stations, both to and fro. The train via Prayagraj will have stoppages at Ujjain, Jhansi, Kanpur Sant Hirdaram Nagar, Bina and Allahabad stations, both to and fro. The Kashi Mahakal Express, like the Tejas trains, will have a dynamic fare structure.

The train will make its regular run from the 20th of February after its inaugural run on the 16th. People can book their tickets on the train from authorized travel agents and from the website and app of the IRCTC. They can also get their tickets from the online travel partners of IRCTC.
