In response to an RTI query, the South Western Railway (SWR) has acknowledged the presence of operational and terminal constraints during the trial run of Train No.20661/20662 Bengaluru Dharwad Bengaluru Vande Bharat Express. These constraints have been already addressed to extend the train service to Belagavi. Both constraints relating to Watering and OHE over pitline have been completed long back.

The highly anticipated trial run of the KSR Bengaluru-Belagavi Vande Bharat Express took place on November 21st, 2023. This state-of-the-art train, known for its exceptional speed and efficiency, completed its maiden journey from KSR Bengaluru to Belagavi and back without any complications.

By December 15, both the constraints were removed by adding the OHE over pitline and watering facility.

However, many individuals are now questioning why the Vande Bharat train service has not yet commenced. There could be several factors contributing to this delay, primarily related to the maintenance of these trains at Belagavi station or is it anything else?

Or is it that they are playing the waiting game and would commence the same just before the upcoming Loksabha elections?

  1. About the delay in Vande Bharat train extending up to Belagavi, the railway authorities must publish an official statement for the reason as soon as possible.

  2. I completely agree with the author’s point that the elimination of operational and terminal constraints for Vande Bharat trains is a significant step towards improving their efficiency and effectiveness. However, I wonder if there are any remaining constraints that need to be addressed to further improve the service. For instance, what about the ticket pricing and availability? Are there any plans to address these issues?
