Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Ltd ( IRCTC ), the tourism division of Indian Railways, has launched a series of exciting tour packages under the Bharat Gaurav Train, Dekho Apna Desh, and Rail Tour Package offerings.
During a media interaction, Gururaj Sonna, Area Officer of IRCTC Pune, stated, “We have introduced new tour packages that are affordable and appealing to people from all walks of life. Our aim is to attract not only residents of major cities but also individuals in towns and villages who may not have had access to travel to their desired destinations. The overwhelming response to our previous three Bharat Gaurav Trains, one from Mumbai and two from Pune, has prompted us to expand to air travel as well. We are confident that people will enjoy the travel experiences and journeys offered by our air packages, just like the Bharat Gaurav Train.”
The event was attended by prominent figures such as Gururaj Sonna, Area Officer of IRCTC Pune, Alok Singh Parmar and Shweta Singh, Executives of IRCTC Tourism in Pune and Mumbai respectively, and Madanlal Meena, Pune Railway Station Director.
