The railway budget for 2013-14 announced on Tuesday a weekly Mumbai-Delhi airconditioned express train to be introduced will run via Nashik on the lines of the Rajdhani Express.

"We had proposed to the Railway Board that an airconditioned train be introduced between Mumbai and Delhi via Bhopal. The demand was supported by members of parliament from Thane, Nashik and adjoining regions. The railway minister has announced the weekly train in the budget. We will take efforts to ensure that the train is run on the lines of the Rajdhani Express," Central Railways general manager Subodh Jain said. 

The Rajdhani Express has a different set of rakes and modalities enabling the train to run at high speeds. According to senior officials, all the required systems will be in place by the time the schedule for the train is announced.
