"We are not participating in the tender for making Vande Bharat trainsets. However, we can supply systems for the train if the successful bidder approaches us," N. Srinivasan, Managing Director, told IANS.

The expansion will be done in two phases over four year period to address increased demand in the domestic and overseas markets.
