Trial run of Vande Bharat Sleeper Class trains in next 2 months

New Delhi: In a major development, Indian Railways will commence the trial run of the Vande Bharat Sleeper Class train within the next two months. Presently, the Vande Bharat Express, which features only chair cars, is operational.

Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw announced in New Delhi that there has been significant public demand for the Vande Bharat Sleeper train.

The Vande Bharat train is India’s first indigenous semi-high-speed train. Minister Vaishnaw emphasised that over the next five years, the government will prioritise rail infrastructure development and enhancing passenger comfort.

Over the past decade, the government has constructed 35,000 kilometers of rail tracks.

The Minister also highlighted the government’s focus on providing comfortable journeys for low-income groups and noted ongoing efforts to increase the production of Amrit Bharat trains.

Additionally, Vaishnaw mentioned that to manage the extra rush of passengers during the summer season, Indian Railways operated approximately 20,000 special trains, accommodating around four crore passengers.
