Namo Bharat: India’s Fastest Train Begins Today At 160km Per Hour
PM Modi is launching India’s first regional rapid train. It’s called “Namo Bharat.” The train runs between Delhi and Meerut, cutting down your travel time to less than an hour.
RRTS stands for Regional Rapid Transit System. It’s a new kind of train network that’s designed to make commuting between cities faster and more efficient. Think of it like a super-fast local train.
“Namo Bharat” is the name of this new fast train. It’s part of the RRTS. These trains can hit speeds of up to 160 km/hr. They have all the modern comforts—reclining seats, special arrangements for women & elders, and so on!
People can now travel between Delhi and Meerut in under an hour. That’s a game-changer for daily commuters. Plus, the trains will be frequent—every 15 minutes to start but can be upped to every 5 minutes. That means less waiting, and more doing!
This is going to be the fastest train in India, according to officials. It’s designed to go even up to 180 km/hr. That’s some serious speed!
Ali Hasan, an RRTS official, said this is a “big success.” Given the speed and the technology involved, it’s hard to argue with him.
The project isn’t cheap. It’s coming up at a cost of more than Rs 30,000 crore. But considering the benefits, many believe it’s worth every penny.
The name “Namo Bharat” is causing some stir. ‘Namo’ is actually a Sanskrit word, part of Indian culture. It simply means that we respect and worship our country. However, it is also being linked with PM Modi’s initials, and some Congress leaders are not happy about it.
But look, if we’re going there, Congress has named thousands of things across the country (including government schemes, public places & so on) after Gandhi and Nehru.
So, it’s a bit like the pot calling the kettle black. However, several citizens believe PM Modi deserves credit for these kinds of initiatives anyway.
