JAIPUR, April 12, 2012, DHNS:
The much awaited double-decker air-conditioned train between Jaipur and Delhi is all set to have its maiden run within a few days.

The train will replace the Jaipur-Delhi non-stop special train. It will have stops at Gurgaon, Delhi Cant and Delhi Sarai Rohilla at the same timings. The train will leave Jaipur at 6 am and reach Sarai Rohilla in Delhi by 10:30. It will return at 5: 35 pm to reach Jaipur at 10: 05pm.
