PM Modi flagged off Kerala's first Vande Bharat Express, know the route and ticket prices
Vande Bharat Express: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has come to Kerala on a two-day tour. On Tuesday at 11:10 a.m. he flagged off the inaugural Vande Bharat train in the state between Thiruvananthapuram and Kasaragod. Arif Mohammed Khan, the governor of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan, Ashwini Vaishnav, and Shashi Tharoor, a member of parliament, were all in attendance. Between Thiruvananthapuram and Kasaragod, the Vande Bharat train will travel through 11 districts in Kerala.
Route of Vande Bharat
The state capital of Kerala will be connected to the northern Kasaragod district by the Vande Bharat Express. Many have promoted it as an alternative to Silverline, the ambitious semi-high-speed rail line being built by the state's Left Democratic Front (LDF) administration. Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Kottayam, Ernakulam, Thrissur, Palakkad, Pathanamthitta, Malappuram, Kozhikode, Kannur, and Kasaragod are the 11 districts that the Vande Bharat Express will travel through. The Prime Minister landed here earlier this morning from Kochi. BJP leaders and supporters greeted him warmly as he arrived at the airport in Thiruvananthapuram.

Charges of new Vande Bharat Express
Train number 20634 Vande Bharat Express's ticket price from Thiruvananthapuram Central to Kasaragod is Rs. 1590 in a chair car, plus Rs. 379 for catering. Executive class tickets will cost Rs 2880, which also includes Rs 434 for meal expenses. When we first started the development of the railway station, we believed that we should make modern-type buildings, according to railway minister Ashwini Vaishnav in Thiruvananthapuram. But according to PM Modi, any design you create today must be able to accommodate people's requirements over the ensuing 50 years. This is PM Modi's plan for Kerala and the railways.
