Ranchi New Delhi Ranchi Garib Rath Express train

The Garib Rath express train is one of the premier trains introduced by the Indian Railways in 2005 to provide fully air-conditioned travel to those passengers who could not afford the expensive tickets of the fully air-conditioned coaches as in Rajdhani Express and Shatabdi Express.

Therefore, the Garib Rath, whose name means “Poor Man’s Chariot”, was introduced with the facilities of being fully air-conditioned and running faster than most other super-fast express trains running presently.

The maximum speed of Garib Rath trains is 130 km/hr which is the same as Rajdhani’s top speed. However, in Garib Rath trains, passengers are not normally provided with blankets and pillow and they have to pay extra to get those. Garib Rath trains are also slated to have many amenities such as fridge, microwave oven, tv, cooler, fan, toaster. They have continuous running electronic display which will show distance remaining, next station name and expected time to reach there. The coaches also decorated with beautiful paintings of Indian heritage artwork. The emergence of the Garib Rath has led to more connections between commercially important routes, where these trains run faster and make fewer stops.
