Prabhu inspected the new coaches of Tejas Express and told reporters, "We have announced about it (Tejas Express) in our 2016-17 Budget, and we are happy to deliver it". The Tejas will also serve choice cuisine curated by celebrity chefs. Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu inspected the new train and said that the upgraded, all-seating service would attract a slightly higher fare than Shatabdi, the nearest comparable product from Indian Railways' existing offerings.

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. "We received instructions from the railway board for the arrangement of catering services in the country's first Tejas train", said an IRCTC officer. The Tejas Express is likely to run on the Anand Vihar-Lucknow route and the Mumbai-Surat route, but the schedule is yet to be decided.

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.
