The third and new Vande Bharat train has broken the record of even bullet trains to reach 100kmph speed from zero in just 52 seconds during a test run, Railway minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said on Friday.
The train also has an air purification system that can kill germs and viruses with 99% effectiveness. The semi-high speed train is set to run on the Ahmedabad-Mumbai route in the next few weeks.
