5 Vande Bharat trains are running from Delhi, 4 from Maharashtra 

All the southern states have got the gift of this semi high speed train. Right now maximum five Vande Bharat trains are running from Delhi. Four Vande Bharats are running in Maharashtra. 


The country's first Vande Bharat Express train ran between New Delhi and Varanasi. The first such train of the second generation was run between Mumbai and Ahmedabad. Last month five Vande Bharat trains were flagged off. 


It is believed that at least three Vande Bharat Express trains can be launched this month, including Howrah-Puri, New Jalpaiguri-Guwahati and Patna-Ranchi Vande Bharat Express.
