The Tejas Rajdhani Express running between Agartala and Anand Vihar Terminal will divert its route of operations through Malda Town, Bhagalpur Jn., Jamalpur Jn. Via Patna Jn. from 15th January, 2024.
The newly diverted route will fulfil the long-cherished demands of a vast area of population from West Bengal & Bihar states that were earlier lacking the privileges to travel in Rajdhani Express trains.
With the diversion of route, there will be changes in timings and total journey time. Train no. 20501 (Agartala- Anand Vihar Terminal) will commence its journey from Agartala on 15th January, 2024, on Monday, at 15:10 hours to reach its destination at Anand Vihar Terminal of Delhi on Wednesday at 10:50 hours.
Similarly, train no. 20502 (Anand Vihar Terminal- Agartala) will commence its journey from Anand Vihar Terminal of Delhi, at 19:50 hours, Wednesday, to reach its destination of Agartala at Tripura on Friday at 15:40 hours.
The train will run via important stations of West Bengal & Bihar namely Malda Town, Bhagalpur and Jamalpur, thus increasing the geographic connectivity of the states of Tripura, Assam, West Bengal and Bihar with the capital city of our nation. This will also boost the socio-economic scenario for all the newly connected places.
The details of stoppages and timings of these trains are available at IRCTC website and are also being notified in various newspaper and social media platforms of N. F. Railway. Passengers are requested to verify the details before undertaking their journey.
