Rajdhani Express. Is the food free even for the 3rd AC travellers?

" How many Rajdhani Express trains are running in India ?" someone asked. I found out. There are currently a total of 24 Rajdhani Express trains running on various routes in India.  "What is the speed of Rajdhani?" Rajdhani Express was designed to run at a maximum speed of 130 km/hr. The first ever Rajdhani Express ran between Howrah(Kolkata - then known as Calcutta) to New Delhi on 3rd March 1969 covering a distance of 1450 km in 17 hours 20 minutes. The Mumbai- Delhi Rajdhani Express fare for 1st AC is INR 4350/- , for 2nd AC is INR 3555/-, 3rd AC is INR 2560/- . While booking online there would be bank transaction charges & regular taxes added at the time of checking out. The distance between Mumbai-Delhi is approximately 1400 kms. 1384 kms to be precise. Fares for other routes can be estimated similarly.  Is the food in Rajdhani free? Yes , it is absolutely free irrespective of the class you are travelling in. 1st, 2nd or 3rd Class AC passeng
