DELHI (Metro Rail News): Indian Railway (IR) has been planning to replace Shatabdi and intercity express with next-generation Vande Bharat trains which will reduce the travelling time between places on all important routes of the country including Mumbai -Pune and Mumbai -Ahmadabad. According to sources, initially 27 prominent intercity routes of the country were identified by railway to run Vande Bharat trains near future.

Ashwani Vaishnaw, minister of railways said, “Indian Railway will get two more trains in August 2022, after that every month four Vande Bharat trains will be produced at different rail coach factories of the country including Latur”.

According to the minister, the production of Vande Bharat trains in the Marathwada rail coach factory is probably going to start in the next 6 months. “We are trying our best to introduce semi-high speed Vande Bharat trains on all prominent intercity routes by next year but it depends on the availability of rakes”, he said talking about the introduction of Vande Bharat trains on the Mumbai Pune route.

Currently, Vande Bharat trains only come with seating facilities.
