PM to flag off Assam’s first Vande Bharat Express from Assam on May 29

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch Assam’s first Vande Bharat Express through video conferencing on May 29th at 12 p.m.

The cutting-edge Vande Bharat Express will allow residents in the region to travel quickly and comfortably. It will also increase tourism in the area. When compared to the present fastest train linking the two cities, the train between Guwahati and New Jalpaiguri will save around an hour of travel time. Vande Bharat will complete the voyage in 5 hours and 30 minutes, while the present fastest train takes 6 hours and 30 minutes.

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

The 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.
