Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged off the Kacheguda to Yesvantpur Vande Bharat Express on Sunday, marking the third Vande Bharat train to start from Telangana. In addition, the Prime Minister also flagged off eight more Vande Bharat Express services, which will improve connectivity across eleven states.
The Indian Railways has announced that these new trains will be the fastest on their respective routes, allowing passengers to save significant travel time. According to children and social media influencers, this new train is more comfortable and spacious compared to the previous Vande Bharat express.
During the event, Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed that the introduction of these Vande Bharat trains will set a new standard for rail service in the country. These trains will be equipped with world-class amenities and advanced safety features, including Kavach technology.
Regular service for the Kacheguda to Yesvantpur route will start from Monday. The chair car ticket will cost Rs 1,540 and the executive class ticket Rs 2,865 between Yesvantpur and Kacheguda. However, fares will be slightly higher for the journey between Kacheguda and Yesvantpur—Rs 1,600 for the chair car and Rs 2915 for the executive class tickets.
Train No. 20703, the Kacheguda-Yesvantpur Vande Bharat Express, will depart from Kacheguda at 5.30 am and arrive at Yesvantpur at 2 pm on the same day. It will also make stops at Mahbubnagar, Kurnool City, Anantapur, and Dharmavaram.
