Eventually, among the disputes of corruption in the purchase of the first Vande Bharat equipment, the government has allowed Integral Coach Factory, Chennai to manufacture 45 new rakes of Vande Bharat Express. Along with this, now the way to release International tenders has been cleared to buy propulsion system for these new trains. Hopefully the tenders will be released in next month and production of new Vande Bharat Rakes will be started in the ICF by March.

The Railway Ministry has taken this decision regarding Vande Bharat after waiting for three months. The first such incident occurred due to Vigilance Investigation of Corruption Complaints in Vande Bharat production in which the officials of Integral Coach Factory (ICF) were accused of breaching tender conditions and neglecting other companies to award contracts to a particular firm. As a result of the vigilance investigation, replies have been summoned from eight officers, including the General Manager of ICF.
According to Railway Ministry sources, production of new train sets of Vande India has been delayed by six months due to vigilance investigation. But despite this all 10 rakes will be produced within the time limit, as the Ministry has not made any change in the deadline of 2021-22. This means the current management of the ICF will have to work faster and select the new vendors or vendors along with the tender and timely delivery of the propulsion system to build the train sets according to schedule.

A Senior Railway Board official said that the decision made it clear that Vande Bharat train sets would not be imported. Rather these trains will be made in accordance with international standards in the country itself. The first Vande Bharat had many flaws. The biggest drawback was its overweight, due to which power consumption was high. In addition, there were defects in automatic doors and braking systems. This was due to purchase of equipment without RDSO approval. But now these purchases will be done on the standards set by RDSO.
Earlier, allegations were being made on the board that with the intention of importing Vande Bharat, the old officers of ICF have been implicated in the purchase of EMU and MEMU beside Vande Bharat. Whereas these officers had ignored the unnecessary rules for the construction of India's First Semi high speed train within a year and a half on the call of Prime Minister Narendra Modi 'Make in India' Project. If such a deal will happen with talented and hardworking officers, then in future no officer will dare to take risks in the interest of the country.
