Tejas express marching from Chatrapati Maharaj Shivaji Terminus, Mumbai to Goa at a speed of 200 kmph provided a leisure journey for the passengers with LCD screen, headphones, wifi connection, bio-toilets and tea-coffee vending machines.

But due to a rapid and heavy damage of the devices, headphones being stolen and windows being broken, the ministry issued a circular on 7th February to all the zonal departments to remove the equipment in the existing ones and abandon the same in the manufacturing trains.
