Govt of India focuses on metro rail transformation to deal with issues of rapid urbanization

New Delhi, India (Metro Rail Today): In the last 9 years of Modi-led government a major work has been initiated in making the urban life more easier and the transport system more modern. While Vande Bharat trains are changing the face of Indian railways the Metro trains are giving new identity to the model urban transportation. 
The Government of India has focused on the metro rail transformation to deal with the problems of rapid urbanization and rising population. Before 2014 only 5 cities in India had a 229 km rain network and by April this year, 860 km of metro rail network is operational in 20 cities.

Before 2014 the monthly average of metro lines started was 0.68 km which has increased to 5.6 km per month. The government is also working on other modern urban transport systems like Rapid rail transit system, Metro Neo, Metro lite and Water metro.

Along with the metro trains another important achievement of 9 years of the government is Vande Bharat express trains which according to Prime Minister Narendra Modi are the aspiration of new India.
Recently at the launch of Puri-Howrah Vande Bharat Express train, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that Vande Bharat Express is a symbol of developed India and aspirant Indians. When Vande Bharat travels from one place to another, it reflects India's speed and development.

The country’s first Vande Bharat train ran from New Delhi to Varanasi on February 15, 2019. This train was flagged off by PM Modi. Till now 18 Vande Bharat Express trains are running on different routes of the country. The Express train is the first semi automatic train to be developed in India and one of world’s first compact and efficient trains. Vande Bharat is the first train to be compatible with the indigenous safety Kavach system.
