In a major development for India’s semi high-speed rail connectivity, Indian Railways is planning to roll out at least 10 new Vande Bharat Trains, also known as Train-18, connecting 40 cities by August 2022 as India celebrates its 75th Independence day.
India’s new Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnav recently reviewed the project and directed that the rollout plan be advanced to connect at least 40 cities with the Vande Bharat Trains by August 2022 to show a visible upgrade in the country’s rail services, as reported by The Indian Express.
For achieving the same, Hyderabad-based engineering firm, Medha Servo Drives Ltd Medha has been told to advance its production plan so that at least two prototypes can be rolled out by March next year following all trials. Medha Servo had won the contract worth INR 2,211 Crores to supply the electrical systems for 44 Vande Bharat Trains in January this year.
