Prime Minister Narendra Modi will flag the first Vande Bharat Express train in West Bengal on the Howrah-New Jalpiguri route on 30 December. A senior Eastern Railway official gave this information on Sunday.
Eastern Railway spokesman Eklavya Chakraborty said that a superfast train with modern passenger facilities will take about 7.5 hours to travel from both directions to the destination.
