new Delhi: 44 Vande India by 2022 (Vande Bharat Express) Amidst speculation of delay in derailment of trains, Railways on Tuesday said that these trains will now be constructed in not one but three railway units and within the next three years these trains will come into the rail network.
Railway Board Chairman VK Yadav said on Tuesday that the trains will be built simultaneously in three railway units – Railway Coach Factory at Kapurthala, Modern Coach Factory at Rae Bareli and Integral Coach Factory at Chennai.
Yadav said, “A few months ago it was decided that three railway manufacturing units would build these trains, which would reduce the time taken to construct them. These 44 trains will start running in the next two to three years. Once the tender is finalized, a fixed time period will be made available. ”
