GUWAHATI( Metro Rail News): The Union Minister for Railways, Ashwini Vaishnaw, announced that the allocation for the railways in the Northeast region has been increased to Rs 10,200 crore by the Modi government. Previously, it was set at Rs 2,000 crore before 2014. This boost in funding will help accelerate railway projects in the region. Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw highlighted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi played a crucial role in multiplying the allocation, resulting in the significant increase.

Union Minister Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw shared that all states that have undergone route electrification will have Vande Bharat trains. This statement was made ahead of the inauguration of the semi-high-speed Guwahati-New Jalpaiguri Vande Bharat Express.

The introduction of Vande Bharat trains will enhance connectivity and save approximately one hour of travel time compared to the current fastest trains connecting Guwahati in Assam with New Jalpaiguri in West Bengal. According to the Prime Minister’s Office, while the existing fastest trains take around six and a half hours, the Vande Bharat will cover the journey in five and a half hours.

The Integral Coach Factory (ICF) in Chennai produces the domestic Vande Bharat trains. These trains are intended to take the place of Shatabdis, Rajdhanis, and local trains, offering passengers a better travelling experience. Vande Metro, Vande Chair Car, and Vande Sleepers trains are anticipated to be launched by the end of next year, according to Shri Ashiwini Vaishnaw, who spoke at the May 25 opening of the Dehradun-Delhi Vande Bharat Express.
