Vande Sadharan: Crores of people travel by train every day in the country. The government started many trains for the convenience of passengers. In this connection, Vande Mataram Express was started because it is known to cover more distance in less time.
This train is quite comfortable. But due to high fares people are not able to travel. In view of this, Indian Railways has decided to run the non-AC version of Vande Bharat, Vande Sadharan Express (not the official name) from the year 2023. At present it has been decided to run this train on 5 routes.
Preparation for trial run begins
Like Vande Bharat, Vande Ordinary Express coaches are being manufactured at the Integral Coach Factory in Chennai. Instead of the blue-white Vande Bharat Express, the Vande Sadharan Express has been designed in saffron and brown colours.
According to the information received, It has cost about Rs 65 crore to prepare this train. According to media reports, the train will have 22 coaches, out of which 12 will be sleeper, 8 general and 2 guard coaches. Vande Sadharan Express was brought to Mumbai on Sunday morning for the first trial run of this train. It has been parked at Wadi Bunder Railway Yard in Mazgaon where it will be tested.
Here is the route
Vande Bharat train will currently run on 5 routes. These also include Patna-New Delhi. Howrah-New Delhi, Hyderabad-New Delhi, Mumbai-New Delhi, Ernakulam-Guwahati. Vande Ordinary Express is being said to be the non-AC version of Vande Bharat Express but it will be quite different from the semi-high speed Vande Bharat Express. Ordinary Express will be a non-AC train.
Vande Bharat Express has facilities like CCTV, Automatic Door Locking, Pantry Cabin etc., which are also the main attractions of this train. But these facilities may be missing in Vande Sadharan Express. Due to difference in facilities, there can be a lot of difference in the fares of both the trains.
