India has one of the largest railway networks connecting all its states, metro cities, major cities and almost all large and small villages inaccessible and remote areas of the country.
Often referred to as "the nation's transportation lifeline," rail is one of the most popular modes of transportation in India because it is one of the cheapest and most convenient modes of transportation.
As the fourth largest railway network in the world, the Indian Ministry of Railways is committed to developing and improving its network.
The Indian railway system is constantly introducing new modes of transport, designs and technologies to improve its efficiency and make transport easier and more convenient.
Railways are completely dependent on the speed of trains on their network. Speed is one of the most important factors that determine the quality of a train.
Everyone wants to get to their destination as quickly as possible. So there is a huge demand for high-speed trains.
India has few high-speed trains that allow people across the country to travel frequently and cover long distances quickly.
So now let's talk about some high-speed trains in India.
Earlier, the fastest train in India was the famous "Bhopal Shatabdi" express train with a speed of 150 km/h. Then "Gatimaan" Express took over and currently Vande Bharat Express is the fastest train in India.
Now let's take a look at the 10 fastest trains in India
