Hon'ble Minister of Railways, Communications and Electronics & Information Technology, Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw inspected the Amrit Bharat train rake at New Delhi railway station today. Shri Vaishnaw appreciated the technology used in the newly built Amrit Bharat trains for ensuring maximum comfort to the travelling public.  Amrit Bharat train is ready based o­n the push –pull technology.
