The Chairman made these announcements while he was meeting a delegation of the Federation of Hospitality and Tourism of Rajasthan (FHTR) at the Paryatan Bhawan in Jaipur recently.
The luxurious train was not operational amid the pandemic, as the situation is now returning to normal. The government should capitalise on its popularity and bring this back said the chairman.
