Indian Railways to Launch Vande Bharat Train for Goa
Indian Railways is set to expand its network of Vande Bharat trains, with the launch of the train for Goa. The Vande Bharat train will run between Mumbai and Goa, cutting down travel time to seven hours. The train will be flagged off on June 03 from Madgaon in Mumbai, and will have eight coaches instead of 16.
The Vande Bharat Express is India’s first semi-high speed train, with a maximum speed of 160 km/h. The train is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, such as a GPS-based information system, CCTV cameras, vacuum-based bio toilet, automatic sliding door, and four emergency push buttons in each coach. The train is completely designed and manufactured in India, with 80% of the products made indigenous.
According to Railway Minister Ashwani Vaishnav, by the end of June, all the states of India will be linked to the service of Vande Bharat. Three types of Vande Bharat trains will run in the country by next year, including Vande Chair Car, Vande Sleeper, and Vande Metro trains. These indigenous semi-high speed trains are being prepared to replace Shatabdi, Rajdhani, and local trains. The trains are being manufactured at the Integrated Coach Factory in Chennai.
Currently, the CSMT Tejas Express (22120) runs from Goa to Mumbai, covering the distance in 8 hours and 40 minutes. The launch of the Vande Bharat train for Goa will significantly reduce travel time, making the journey more comfortable and efficient.
In conclusion, Indian Railways’ move to expand its network of Vande Bharat trains is a significant step towards revolutionizing train travel in India. The launch of the Vande Bharat train for Goa is expected to enhance connectivity and make travel more convenient for passengers. With the introduction of three types of Vande Bharat trains, the future of train travel in India looks promising.
