Prime Minister Narendra Modi will roll out five new Vande Bharat Express trains simultaneously on June 27 this year.
These trains will operate on the Goa-Mumbai, Patna-Ranchi, Bhopal-Indore, Bhopal-Jabalpur, and Bangalore-Hubli routes. With the introduction of the new trains, the total number of Vande Bharat trains running in the country will go up to 23.
The semi-high-speed trains, manufactured as part of the Narendra Modi government’s “Make in India” policy will provide a faster and more comfortable travel experience to passengers.
The Vande Bharat Express trains are equipped with state-of-the-art amenities, including comfortable seating, advanced safety features, and enhanced passenger services.
The introduction of these new Vande Bharat Express trains on additional routes is expected to boost tourism, trade, and economic development in the regions they serve. The manufacturing of these trains at the Integrated Coach Factory of the Indian Railways spurs growth through backward linkages in the economy as they use inputs such as domestically produced steel providing demand for indigenous goods.
