In a surprising turn of events, the premier Vande Bharat Express was seen in a state reminiscent of overcrowded general quota trains in India. A video that has gone viral shows ticketless passengers cramming into a coach of the luxurious train, which operates between Lucknow Junction and Dehradun.

The video, shared on the social media platform ‘X’, depicts the Vande Bharat Express standing at a platform with passengers pushing their way into an already crowded coach. In another clip, the aisle is so packed that there is barely any room to walk, making the premium train appear no different from any other overcrowded Indian train.

The footage quickly drew widespread attention and sparked a wave of public commentary. 

One user sarcastically suggested, “Implement metro system in every railway station, no card, no tickets, no platform tickets, no entry.” 

Another user commented, “First, Vande Bharat train system must have dedicated special Railway Police. What is the purpose of buying tickets worth thousands?”

Meanwhile, this isn’t the first complaint about the Vande Bharat Express to surface online. Earlier, a frustrated traveller voiced dissatisfaction with the food quality on the luxury train. In a post (previously tweet) that quickly gained traction, the passenger shared images comparing the food served during the train’s inaugural run to the “stale” food currently provided.

Indeed, the Vande Bharat Express, despite its premier status, is facing challenges that one would hardly expect from such a prestigious service

The video has highlighted the pressing issue of maintaining the integrity and exclusivity of India’s premier train services amidst the ongoing challenges of overcrowding and ticketless travel.
