Vande Bharat Train, New: One of Indian Railways' ambitious objectives is to build the Vande Bharat train entirely from domestic technology. After the disaster in Balasore, Odisha, the Vande Bharat train between Mumbai and Goa was delayed in its debut. The railway will now launch five Vande Bharat trains at once in June. PTI reports that the Vande Bharat train would begin running on five distinct routes by the Railways. On June 26, 2023, these trains will depart.
Which routes will be serviced by the new Vande Bharat train?
The unique aspect is that five Vande Bharat trains will be given to the nation simultaneously for the first time. According to PTI news, all of these trains will be signaled off by Prime Minister Narendra Modi through video conference. These new Vande Bharat trains will begin running on the lines of Mumbai-Goa, Patna-Ranchi, Bhopal-Indore, Bengaluru-Hubli, and Bhopal-Jabalpur. On June 26, the Vande Bharat train will be signaled off each route.
The Vande Bharat train's launch between Mumbai and Goa was postponed.
In Balasore, Odisha, on June 2, three trains collided. This terrible accident claimed the lives of 288 people. Also hurt in this accident were over a thousand more people. The launch of the Mumbai-Goa Vande Bharat train on June 3 was postponed due to this catastrophe. Following this, there is now word that the train will begin operating on this route on June 26.
Vande Bharat is running on 18 routes.
Notably, the Vande Bharat train operates on 18 different routes across the nation. In February 2019, this train began running on the Delhi-Varanasi line for the first time. It is a fully air-conditioned train manufactured entirely of Indian technology. Automatic doors and 180-degree rotating seats are features of its train. Additionally, this train has modern amenities, including Wi-Fi and GPS. The KAVACH technology has also been incorporated into the train for its safety.
