It is said that there will be a total of 16 coaches in this train, which is being developed by Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL) and TMH of Russia.

An ICF engineer said that Vande Bharat sleeper trains would be a significant addition to the Indian Railways fleet, as they will allow passengers to travel long distances on these high-speed trains overnight. “The sleeper version of Vande Bharat will later phase out Tejas and other luxury trains,” said a railway ministry officer.

Viewed as a symbol of a progressive and self-reliant India, the indigenous semi high speed train aims at providing a totally new travel experience to the passengers. Speed, safety and service are believed to be the motto of this train.

Equipped with world-class features, the Vande Bharat express has all the comforts that one seeks to enjoy during the journey. The first Vande Bharat Express, between New Delhi and Varanasi, was flagged off by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on February 15, 2019. A Vande Bharat train achieved a maximum speed of 180 kmph on the Kota-Sawai Madhopur section.

Manufactured at ICF, Chennai, the train set stands as a symbol of the ‘Make-In-India’ initiative and showcases India’s engineering prowess. The Russian firm is supporting ICF to build the sleeper coaches for Vande Bharat express trains.
