Jaipur-Chandigarh Intercity Express Extended up to Daulatpur Chowk in Himachal

Jaipur: Railways have given a big relief to the passengers traveling from Jaipur to the hilly areas. This is because Baroda House (Northern Railway) has decided to extend 19717/19718 Intercity Express running between Jaipur to Chandigarh up to Daulatpur Chowk in Himachal.

Reshma Hussain, Senior Member of the Passenger Service Committee (PSC) Ministry of Railways, told that the train will run between Daulatpur Chowk to Jaipur. By extending this train up to Daulatpur Chowk, train connectivity from Jaipur to Dharamshala, Kangra, Kullu and Manali in Himachal Pradesh will be improved. This train will come from Daulatpur to Jaipur on 8 March, a day before Holi, which will be flagged off by Union Minister of State for Finance Anurag Thakur.

There has been no change in the train schedule between Jaipur-Chandigarh-Jaipur. Train operation will be also regular. Significantly, there was no direct train from Jaipur for any tourist place in Himachal Pradesh.

Daulatpur in Una district is a major industrial centre in Himachal. It is very close to two major tourist places of Himachal Pradesh. The distance of Bajreshwari Mata, the famous temple of Kangra from Daulatpur is only 78 km and distance to Dharamshala is 97 km.
The extension of this train will benefit not only Una but also the people of Kangra and Hamirpur district. At the same time, this train facility for Military and Paramilitary Soldiers deployed in Jaipur will be not less than any gift. The train will reach Daulatpur Chowk via SAS Nagar Mohali, Rupnagar, Anandpur Sahib, Nangal Dam, Una Himachal.

This train will benefit the people of Sikh community residing in Jaipur. This is because the main pilgrimage site of Guru Gobind Singh and Guru Tegh Bahadur Singh, the founder of Khalsa Panth is in Anandpur Sahib. In such a situation, till now Jaipurites had to go to Anandpur Sahib from Chandigarh by other means. But now they will get convenience by direct train.

The timetable of the train between Jaipur to Chandigarh and Chandigarh to Jaipur has been not changed. The train will operate on both sides at the same time. Train Number 19717 will leave Jaipur at 7:30 PM and reach Chandigarh the next day at 7:10 AM.
