In India, rails are an integral part of life of people. Every other person in India is travelling by rails. Some people travel to work on a daily basis using rails as transport medium, some travel occasionally for holidays etc. The reason for rails being most popular is multifold. Rails are among the cheapest mode of transport. There are so many classes for all types of people. Moreover rail has very strong reach as it connect all the major towns and villages across whole of India. And that distribution channel is becoming more and more extensive every year. There are many rails in the current network. Shatabdi Express is considered to be the fastest in India and this rail is for short to medium distances. For long distances, there is well known Rajdhani Express which is a premium train with many services and facilities. Durunto Express is similar to Rajdani in terms of services but wheres Rajdhani stops at few focal stops; Duronto has no scheduled stops except for attending to technical snags if any. For the economically weaker section, a train by the name of GaribRath (chariot of the poor) has been launched which has very good facilities as well. Then there are numerous numbers of local and state based trains. There are also special trains like Deccan Odysseys which are tourist trains specially designed for holidays.
