Punjab's First Vande Bharat Express Latest News

Punjab's First Vande Bharat Express Latest News: In a momentous occasion, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Vande Bharat Express on the key Amritsar-Old Delhi Railway route. The historic event saw Governor Banwari Lal Purohit and MP Gurjit Singh Aujla flagging off the train, symbolizing a significant leap in railway connectivity in the region.

Governor Banwari Lal Purohit expressed his enthusiasm for the rapid pace of development, noting that eight trains were simultaneously launched across the nation. He underscored the profound impact of this development on the people of Punjab, thanking the Prime Minister for the substantial gift, which promises to benefit every stratum of society.

The Vande Bharat fleet introduces two trains for Haryana-Punjab, enhancing connectivity for diverse passengers. One of these trains will journey from New Delhi Railway Station to Maa Vaishno Devi Katra station in Jammu and Kashmir, traversing through Haryana and Punjab. The second Vande Bharat train is set to operate between Amritsar and Old Delhi Railway Station, further strengthening the rail network.

The Amritsar-Delhi Vande Bharat train is designed to cover the distance in approximately 5.45 hours, departing at 8.05 am and arriving in Delhi at 1.30 pm. Notable stoppages include Beas, Jalandhar Cantt, Phagwara, Ludhiana, and Ambala Cantt. This initiative aims to streamline travel, offering an efficient alternative to existing services.

While the Vande Bharat Express boasts a travel time only 25 minutes less than the popular Swarn Shatabdi, it comes with a marginally higher fare. The chair car and executive class tickets are priced 1.4 times and 1.3 times higher, respectively. Despite this, the enhanced schedule aims to cater to the preferences of travelers seeking daytime journeys. The inauguration of the Vande Bharat Express is poised to benefit passengers who prefer reaching Delhi in the evening. With its 8.05 am departure from Amritsar and 1.30 pm arrival in Delhi, the service fills a crucial gap in the travel schedule, aligning with the needs of the commuting public.
