Railways announces lucky draw to celebrate birthday on moving train

Good news to passengers of Tejas Express. If you want to celebrate your birthday uniquely, you can do so by celebrating on a moving train and that too without paying extra money.

The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) announced a special offer for rail passengers that travel in Tejas Express from August 27 to September 6. Under this offer, passengers can celebrate their birthdays on Tejas Express if they win a lucky draw announced by the railways.

Railways informed about this offer on Twitter. Passengers will receive a gift if they win the lucky draw.

Tejas Express is the first private train in India. The ticket fare of this train is very high as it offers many modern features. It attracts passengers with its facilities and offers.


Recently, IRCTC started a lucky draw scheme for its passengers that travel in Tejas Express running between Lucknow and New Delhi. 13 passengers are chosen daily for the lucky draw; out of them, 10 passengers are chosen from chair car and 3 from executive class. They will be gifted by the railways.

IRCTC selects the passengers based on PNR. IRCTC knows birthday details from the ticket to celebrate it on the moving train by the staff. If someone has booked a ticket for you, they have to provide the information about your birthday to the staff of Tejas Express at the station so that IRCTC can arrange a cake for you.

Many passengers expressed joy at this initiative. Surprise celebrations of the railways thrilled them. Passengers who book their tickets for the journey between August 27 and September 6 in Tejas Express are eligible for the lucky draw. Passengers need not pay any extra amount to celebrate their birthday. Just buying the ticket for their journey in Tejas Express is enough.
