It now costs about 600-800 rupees lesser to the cover the 1,377km. The new Delhi-Mumbai Rajdhani has cut the travel time by two hours. It covers the busy route in just less than 14 hours. The two other Rajdhani are the Kranti Rajdhani and the Delhi Mumbai Train Central-New Delhi Rajdhani which take about 16-17 hours. Like most other Rajdhani, the train is hauled by two electric locomotives for better acceleration and braking, and hence, can achieve higher average speeds.
