These sleeper trains will revolutionize long-distance travel in India, offering passengers a comfortable and efficient way to cover vast distances overnight. The Vande Bharat Express, with its hallmark attributes of speed, safety, and exceptional service, embodies India’s aspirations for a progressive and self-reliant transportation system.

The inaugural Vande Bharat Express, inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on February 15, 2019, between New Delhi and Varanasi, marked a significant milestone in India’s journey towards self-reliance and technological advancement. This ambitious project, initiated in 2017, resulted in the creation of the first semi-high-speed train set, aptly named Vande Bharat Express, which reached speeds of up to 180 kmph, setting new standards for rail travel in the country.
