Following Prime Minister Narendra Modi's announcement that 75 'Vande Bharat' trains will connect various nation areas, Indian Railways has decided to include extra features such as four emergency windows for quick evacuation of passengers in the event of an emergency in the train.
In a statement on Friday, Northern Railways said that a centralised coach monitoring system for climate management and monitoring all electrical and critical systems onboard set had been deployed.

In addition, each coach will feature four emergency lights that may be utilised in a catastrophic event if the conventional lights fail during that period. In addition, the number of emergency buttons will be raised from three to four. Better flood protection of underframe equipment, specifically designed to assure safety during the monsoon, will be adequate, according to the statement.

On Independence Day, Prime Minister Modi stated that 75 'Vande Bharat' trains would connect different country areas in 75 weeks to commemorate the nation's observance of 'Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav.'

The new trains will also have fire survival cables installed in the interior circuits. In the case of a power outage to the roof-mounted air conditioning package unit in the new train sets, the air purification system has also been redesigned, with the availability of ventilation for three hours, which will assist in delivering a more dependable and bacteria-free air conditioning system.
These new trains will also feature better flood protection underframe technology, which will increase reliability during heavy storms.

Currently, two Vande Bharat trains operate on the Indian Railways network, one on the Delhi-Varanasi route and the other on the Delhi-Katra line. Onboard infotainment, a GPS-based passenger information system, CCTV cameras, automated sliding doors with retractable coach footsteps, and zero discharge vacuum-based bio-toilets are among the features of existing train sets.
