Amrit Bharat Express Route, Speed, Interiors, Timing and Ticket Price

Amrit Bharat Express is the upcoming semi-high-speed train in India. It is inspired by the famous Vande Bharat Express Train but is quite different in facilities and ticket prices.

Amrit Bharat Express

Indian railway plays one of the most very important roles in the Indian transportation system. The growth of the Indian Railway is quite slow after Independence as compared to the road network and aviation industry. However, the Indian Railway has made many innovations like Shatabadi Express, Duranto Express, Gatiman Express, RapidX and Vande Bharat Express to increase the speed of trains. Gatiman Express and Vande Bharat Express have opened many opportunities to increase the speed of Indian trains. Indian Railway is also currently working on the Mumbai Ahmedabad bullet train, which will be India’s first high-speed train line.

What is Amrit Bharat Express?

Amrit Bharat Express has taken inspiration from the fastest train in the country, Vande Bharat Express. There are a few similarities between Amrit Bharat and Vande Bharat Express, but in most terms, there are huge differences. Vande Bharat Express will cover a distance of a maximum of 800 km, while Amrit Bharat will cover a distance of more than 1000 km. Amrit Bharat is designed for common people because ticket price is very low as compared to Vande Bharat.

Amrit Bharat Express Route

Till the end of December 2023, there are two proposed routes of Amrit Bharat Express, Darbhanga Delhi Amrit Bharat Express and Patna Mumbai Amrit Bharat Train. As per the media reports, the Indian railway is planning to run more than 100 Amrit Bharat trains on 50 different routes till the end of December 2024.

Amrit Bharat Express Speed

The Amrit Bharat train can go as fast as 150 km/h, but it’s likely to go around 110 to 120 km/h due to high traffic on railway tracks and poor tracks. The train will be powered by two WAP-5 engines, which is different from other Indian trains. This will be the first passenger and express train to run with two engines. The two engines will help to get the train to maximum speed in less time as compared to other trains.
