New Delhi, India (Urban Transport News): After rescheduling the plan for induction of new Vande Bharat Express trains, Ministry of Railway has planned to launch the sixth Vande Bharat Express Train on 412 km long Bilaspur-Nagpur route of Indian Railways' network. 

According to the latest information, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the sixth semi-high speed Vande Bharat Express train on the Bilaspur (Chattisgarh)-Nagpur (Maharashtra) route on 11th December 2022.  The new Vande Bharat train will run six days a week and will complete one leg of the journey in about five-and-a-half hours.

“The Bilaspur- Nagpur Vande Bharat train will be inaugurated on Sunday (December 11) by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Nagpur. This train will leave Bilaspur at around 6.45am and reach Nagpur at around 12.15pm. Similarly, the train will leave Nagpur at 2pm to reach Bilaspur at 7.35pm. Currently superfast trains take around seven hours to reach Nagpur, however this train will cover the distance in around five-and-a-half hours,” said a railway official.

This train will be operated by the Southeast Central Railways (SECR) Division of Indian Railways and will have scheduled stops at Raipur, Durg and Gondia. 

The seventh Vande Bharat Express train is likely to be launched between Secunderabad and Vijayawada in 2023. This will be the first indigenously-built semi high-speed rail in South Central Railway (SCR) and second such train in south India.

The first Vande Bharat train of series 2.0 was first launched on the Mumbai- Ahmedabad route in October this year. The Ministry of Railways aims to inaugurate 75 Vande Bharat trains by August next year.

All the coaches of the semi-high-speed Vande Bharat train are equipped with automatic doors, GPS-based audio-visual passenger information system, onboard hotspot Wi-Fi for entertainment purposes, and comfortable seats.

However, the first Vande Bharat Express train of series 1.0 was flagged off on the New Delhi- Kanpur- Allahabad-Varanasi route on February 15, 2019 and second train was launched on New Delhi - Sri Mata Vaishno Devi Katra Route on 3rd October 2019 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
