PM Narendra Modi to flag off Assam’s first Vande Bharat Express from Assam tomorrow

| @indiablooms | 28 May 2023, 08:10 pm

New Delhi: PM Narendra Modi will flag off  Assam’s first Vande Bharat Express on Monday at 12 noon via video conferencing, PMO India said.

The state of the art Vande Bharat Express will provide people of the region the means to travel with speed and comfort.

"It will also boost tourism in the region. Connecting Guwahati with New Jalpaiguri, the train will help save about an hour of journey time, when compared with the current fastest train connecting the two places. Vande Bharat will cover the journey in 5 hrs 30 mins, while the current fastest train takes 6 hrs 30 mins to cover the same journey," read the government statement.

The Prime Minister will also dedicate 182 Route Kms of newly electrified sections.

This will help provide pollution free transportation with trains running at higher speed and reduced running time of trains.

It will also open the doors for trains running on electric traction to enter Meghalaya.

Prime Minister will also inaugurate a newly constructed DEMU/MEMU shed at Lumding in Assam.

This new facility will be helpful for maintaining DEMU rakes operating in this region, leading to better operational feasibility.
