बंदे भारत उसी रूट पे चले जिसका 70% ट्रैक 130 kmph स्पीड की अनुमति हो !
नहीं तो कुछ समय बाद ये भी फ्लॉप हो जाएगा।

It's funny to me why people keep pushing the idea of speed wrt to Vande Bharat or compare it with other trains on the similar route (for instance, MAS-MYS VB was promptly being compared with MAS-MYS Shatabdi, with people claiming that there's not much of a time difference. My question is.. what do you expect? That the train would reach in a mere few hours when the track itself is not upgraded for any train).

Vande Bharat is primarily introduced to provide better passenger comfort on routes where there's appropriate demand (in
an ideal case). In the future, they're bound to replace the conventional Shatabdi(s) on almost all routes along with new introductions. Speed can be adjusted accordingly as much as the track allows.

100- 110 MPS doesn't matter if enough priority is given. What matters is Passenger Capability and Priority by Zone of Route. Look at Madurai Tejas Express, it does 79 Average on a total 110 MPS route. More than even this Vande Bharat Express and more than Kalka Shatabdi and Amritsar Shatabdi having 130 MPS.
Most routes with High Passenger Potential are still not 130 MPS.
I compared it with ECR as ECR has given blanket 130 MPS to all LHB trains in DNR Division and DHN Division same trains still have average in
range of 45-49. 130 MPS isn't a guarantee of Speed if Zone is lethargic.
Even Katra Vande Bharat has restricted speed in Katra Jammu Sector and 110 MPS till Ludhiana. Still has incredible time difference when compared with other trains on the route.
110 MPS isn't really a Strict Impediment to introduction of Vande Bharat if Zones give proper Priority to trains.

Man, It's semi high speed train which can run up to 180 kmph.
75-80 kmph on an average can be achieved by other LHB trains.

Haven't you seen the marketing, comparison between VB and bullet train.

For comfort, people would prefer AC sleeper than AC-chair if travelling time going to be similar.

That's what If zone cannot come with best time table, It shouldn't allowed.
Because right now every zones and respective MPs dreaming to get VB allocation.
It's kind of comparison between zones over VB trains allocation.

At this point you ought to know that marketing strategies are a little deceiving. Trains might be capable of doing 180-200 KMPH, but the infrastructure does not support such specifications anywhere expect for a comparatively very small stretch in the entire country. As for the comfort, it goes without saying that inferior or similar or better options might be available than the one in question. It's just a matter of personal opinion and perspective. My point here is that people shouldn't fixate on just the speed aspect of any train, barring all the other parameters.
