The newly-designed coaches are capable of running at 200 kmph. As a result, it will cover the journey from Mumbai CST to Karmali in Goa in eight and a half hours.

The fare has not been disclosed, but the officials point out that it will be almost 30% more than that of Shatabdi and other premium trains.
