The Indian Railways will roll out a new Vikalp scheme on April 1, under which wait-listed passengers can get an option to travel in premium trains like Shatabdi and Rajdhani.
Under the new reservation scheme called 'Vikalp', or alternate train accommodation scheme (ATAS), passengers who have booked tickets in other mail or express trains, can avail the option of travelling in premium trains to their booked destinations with no extra cost.
The aim to roll out such a scheme is to utilise vacant berths in premier trains.
Here are all the details you need to know about the Railway's flagship scheme:
