The Railway Board has decided to operate 50 Amrit Bharat trains for regular rail passengers in the current financial year. All trains will consist of sleeper-general coaches, boasting a top speed of 130 kilometers per hour through the Pull-Push technology.

Due to their higher average speed, these trains will take less time than Rajdhani Express trains. Moreover, the facilities in these coaches will surpass those of mail-express trains.

A senior official of the Railway Board revealed plans to produce a total of 1230 coaches of Amrit Bharat trains in the current fiscal year (2024-25). This includes 600 sleeper category (ACSLH) coaches, 440 general category (ACSL) coaches, and 130 guard-sleeper category (ACSLRD) coaches.

Thus, a total of 50 Amrit Bharat trains, all equipped with sleeper-general coaches, will be operational in the financial year, catering to regular rail passengers.

  • The trains will operate at a maximum speed of 130 kilometers per hour.
  • The design of the toilets in Amrit Bharat trains is inspired by Vande Bharat trains.
  • The trains will have both forward and backward special SLR coaches, considering the needs of differently-abled passengers.


Enhanced Comfort and Efficiency:

With an average speed exceeding that of mail-express trains, Amrit Bharat trains are set to offer a swift journey. The implementation of the Pull-Push technology allows for quicker acceleration and deceleration, leading to an overall increase in average speed.
