The objective of the campaign is to position luxury trains of India as a unique tourism product both in the domestic and overseas markets. The campaign will generate widespread publicity for the luxury trains as well as the destinations visited, by way of blogs, videos and photos published by the Bloggers/Instagramers on their experiences of their journey. Needless to say this initiative would benefit the railways and the Luxury Train Operators to a large extent.
