Concessions to domestic tourists on luxury tourist trains are offered by respective State Tourism Corporations / Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC). Presently, only IRCTC offers concession on its train Maharajas’ Express to domestic tourists by way of a discount of 50% to the second tourist sharing the cabin with a fully paid adult tourist, on select departures. Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation, though offers no specific concession on Palace on Wheels and Royal Rajasthan on Wheels to domestic tourists, equivalent Indian National Rupee (INR) tariff for Indian Passport holders is fixed by taking the exchange rate as Rs. 60 per US$ irrespective of actual exchange rate, thereby insulating them from the fluctuation in exchange rate.
IndianBureaucracy.com welcomes the initiative.
