For the first time, tourists will be able to experience royal marriages and big corporate meetings. For this two new POW sections – Marriage on Wheels and Conference on Wheels – have been introduced.

More than 60% seats were booked, so PoW will remain almost half vacant. Around 30 passengers will travel in the first round of POW.

Palace on Wheels generally takes tourists on a tour of Rajasthan and some other tourist destinations in October. The Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation (RTDC) Department, however, decided to run POW in September keeping in view its popularity and increasing demand among tourists.
