One of the biggest sports extravaganza, Commonwealth Games which is going to kick start in Delhi will have a brand new railway logo. The logo will also be seen in the Games tickets and on the special train which railways will soon flag off to promote the event that begins in October. While Railways is the lead partner of the Commonwealth Games, the IRCTC (Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation) has bagged the contract for selling the event's tickets online including the inaugural and closing ceremony.
To select the logo, Indian Railways recently held a competition offering a prize of Rs 5 lakhs for the winning design. The new logo that has a special recall value represents the uniqueness and vision of Indian Railways.
