The Vande Bharat Express is one of India's premium trains designed under the Made in India initiative. The first such train was inaugurated in February 2019 after four years of planning, manufacturing and testing.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has inaugurated nine Vande Bharat trains connecting religious and tourist destinations across 11 states: Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Bihar, West Bengal, Kerala, Odisha, Jharkhand, and Gujarat.
The PM said that the Vande Bharat Express trains will improve connectivity and boost tourism across India.
He added that the popularity of the trains is constantly rising, with over 11 million passengers having already traveled on them.
Currently, 25 Vande Bharat wagons are already running, a figure which goes up to 34 today.

"Indian Railways is the most trusted co-passenger of India's poor and middle-class people. The number of people who travel in the railways in one day is more than the population of many countries," the prime minister said.

PM Modi said that the government is now working on transforming Indian Railways in other areas.
