What is unique about the Garib Rath Express?

The two words ‘garib rath’, if translated literally, becomes ‘Poor People’s Chariot.’ The train, though named, Garib Rath, has air-conditioned compartments. It was introduced with the intention of giving the minor passengers in India opportunities to travel long distances with comfort in air-conditioned trains at a subsidised price. Many in our country can’t afford to travel in air-conditioned trains due to high fare. In the Garib Rath Express, they have to pay two-thirds of what the fare is in other AC trains.

As the fare is low, the space between two berths in the Garib Rath Express is less. The seats are narrower, and the coaches have the maximum number of berths if it’s compared to any other AC train.
