ICF plans to release the third Vande Bharat rake

CHENNAI: The Integral Coach Factory (ICF) in Chennai is planning to let out the third Vande Bharat rake in March 2022.

The awaited project, the manufacturing of 102 Vande Bharat trains which is to be operated across India, was inspected by Chairman Railway Board, Suneet Sharma and he exhibited fulfilment over the progress made so far.

India’s first Semi-high speed trains manufactured by ICF in 2018, i.e, the Train18, are now being run as Vande Bharat Expresses around Delhi, Varanasi and Katra routes.

The Railways Ministry made tenders for manufacturing 58 rakes, each comprising 16 coaches after the announcement made by PM Modi about the project of 75 Vande Bharat trains on the occasion of Independence Day, 2021.

Also, the sources from ICF says that the Chief Executive Officer announced a reward of Rs.1 lakh to ICF staff in the mention of their good work.
