On the eve of the state assembly elections in the next two months, Karnataka is all set to have two vande bharat trains connecting capital Bengaluru with Hydera

bad and Hubli in Northern part of the state.

The first vande bharat in southern India was commissioned between Bengaluru and Chennai but it turned out to be the slowest of the vande bharat trains operating in the country since the railway tracks in Tamil Nadu remained weak and did not have modern signaling systems.

The IT hub of the country will soon get another semi-high-speed train, connecting Bengaluru to Telangana’s Hyderabad and covering a long distance of 570 kilometers according to the latest notification by the South central railway.

The new Vande Bharat Express train is expected to run from Bengaluru to Kacheguda in Hyderabad, which takes around 10 hours by road. Through the Vande Bharat train, the distance will be covered in around 4 hours.

The formal announcement regarding the launch of the Bengaluru-Hyderabad Vande Bharat train will be made during the presentation of the Union Budget 2023, which will take place on February 1 in Parliament.

Another vande bharat is on the cards to link Bengaluru with Hubli in the northern part of Karnataka
