NEW DELHI: Vande Bharat Express or Train 18's air conditioned chair car ticket would cost Rs 1,850 and the executive class fare will be Rs 3,520 for a Delhi to Varanasi trip, including the catering service charges, officials told PTI Monday.
印度国产列车“致敬印度号”（Vande Bharat Express），也就是Train 18列车，从德里到瓦拉纳西的空调硬座票价为1850卢比，商务座票价3520卢比
On its return journey, the chair car ticket will cost Rs 1,795 and the executive car ticket will be priced at Rs 3,470, they said.
You can opt for Flight and it will be the same as compare to the Train 18 Economy fare and time taken will also be 5 times lesser. Also it will kill your whole day since it is running early at 6 AM .There are overnight journey from other trains which is more feasible at reasonable price.
It is foolish to compare the facility in US or advanced countries with that of facility in India.Can you simiarly compare everything.A senior citizen inIndia can travel 500 km say Chennai-Coimbatore/Madurai/Mysore by just paying Rs 150 which is equivalent to 2 US $.will it be possible in US?One litre water bottle cost Rs200 or more in US.

Still the time factor weighs in favor of plane. This train is good for government employees and others who travel on the privilege of reimbursement. The foreign tourist may also prefer this. Still there is additional service from Railways and its aim is to showcase it as great technological advancement by Modi government during the coming general elections although it is bound to be pleasing to eyes and ears of elite class.
What elite class? have you seen kind of people paying 5000 for a Delhi-Varanasi air ticket?However, instead of 8 hours sitting a passenger would prefer to fly as Varanasi has several flight options to Delhi. Yes, it will attract lots of passengers from Kanpur which has only one flight to Delhi.
What are you going to do in Varanasi after going there in such comfort and speed? To have a dip in the polluted Ganga?
not good to run down sacred ganga sirjee, it like google anti- semetic or hate crime
Your mind is polluted. Ganga remained polluted because of ''polluted'' people like you managed the affairs in UP. But no more, because it is MODI now. Ganga our mother like river is gaining its past glory, slowly but certainly
I wonder what the fare is for the same distance on a similar class of train in Europe
what we are going to achieve by comparison?It is meaningless.
There should have one survey to find out why people prefer AC compartment as compared to non AC.Do people really want cool compartment or they choose bcos AC compartment is considered safer.
Safer,cleaner, comfortable and convenient.
AC compartment is cleaner as it is closed.
flights are better and safer !
Hope this train won’t derail more often...
Hope ACHCHE DIN come! Hope compensation in a train, where ticket fares are hire comparatively, is also higher should your hope does not materialize.
This is affordable. I hope the people maintain it!
flight would be better in same price..
flight ticket is rs2500, train ticket 3500???? does any businessman have so much time????
what is the time taken atthe check-in-counters in Airports?,luggage release time etc.trains have got its own advantages.
Seekers have time if not business men
Almost equivalent to flights but time is benefit
Time is benefit??? What does it mean? Time in a flight will be less.
I think the fares should be rationalized slightly. I think for saving just a couple of hours as compared to the Shatabdhi - this is way too steep.
