Good news! Indian Railways alert! Government to make 40 Vande Bharat Express train sets
Indian Railways is all set to get as many as 40 new sets of Vande Bharat Express train over the next two years.
In a bid to run semi-high speed trains on the major rail routes of the Indian Railways, the government is mulling to make 40 new sets of Vande Bharat Express train over the next two years. Vande Bharat Express train runs at 160 kms/hour speed, which allows commuters to reach its destination much faster than any other train. Currently, the Indian Railways has stopped construction of new Vande Bharat coaches and its set of rakes. So, if the Modi Government decides to make 40 new sets of Vande Bharat Express trains, then the Indian Railways will have to lift this manufacturing stoppage on Vande Bharat Express.
According to Zee Business sources, first Vande Bharat Express train that runs between Varanasi to New Delhi had a few faults. However, the government has decided to address them now.

Also, Indian Railways current Vande Bharat Express rakes are not at par with the global power consumption parameters. The new rakes to be made over the next two years, this demerit too will be sorted. On several occasions Chairman of the Railway Board has clarified, "Delay in production of Vande Bharat Express is due to change in technical specifications and for transparency."
The Vande-Bharat Express currently runs between Delhi and Varanasi and includes the in-house design and manufacture, computer modelling and working, etc. Adding up the green footprints, this fully 'Make in India' train has regenerative braking system in the coaches which can save up to 30 per cent of electrical energy.
