Vande Bharat train: With PM Modi launching ten additional trains on Tuesday, there will be more than fifty trains running throughout the states.

On Tuesday, March 12, Prime Minister Narendra Modi officially opened 10 new Vande Bharat trains, bringing the total number of these trains to over 50 and covering 45 routes across the country. Currently, the Indian Railways covers 24 states and 256 districts with 41 Vande Bharat Express services that connect states with Broad Gauge (BG) electrified networks.

Two Vande Bharat trains will run on six routes: Delhi-Katra, Delhi-Varanasi, Mumbai-Ahmedabad, Mysuru-Chennai, Kasaragod-Thiruvananthapuram, and now, Visakhapatnam-Secunderabad.

The majority of Vande Bharat trains operate on electrified broad gauge networks that cross multiple states.

The prime minister launched six more Vande Bharat trains in December 2023. They made up the second train that ran from Katra to New Delhi. Amritsar to Delhi, Coimbatore to Bangalore, Mangalore to Madgaon, Jalna to Mumbai, and Ayodhya to Delhi were among the other routes. In December 2023, the second train that runs between Delhi and Varanasi was also inaugurated.
