    The train had developed a snag during its inaugural run on Saturday traveling back from Varanasi to Delhi. The PTI report said that the officials had worked all day to fix the problem that occurred from the charging cable malfunction affecting the wheels of the train and brake system.

    At 180 kmph, the Vande Bharat Express beats Gatiman Express (160 kmph) to become the fastest train in India. It was renamed from Train 18 to Vande Bharat Express and was inaugurated on 15 February by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
