Life in the Fastlane – Indian Bullet Train at 350 km/h

The Project of India’s first bullet train is back on its track of revival after it went on halt in its initial phase. The bullet train project would probably get all the permissions and clearances till the end of this year and Ahmedabad – Mumbai corridor will be the first one to feel this sky rocketing speed.
There has been some speculations that, once the Digital Project Report is proposed, this project would go on a full swing mode. The final study of this project will be done in collaboration with Jaica which is obviously a Japanese firm. 


There has been several issues of concern in this project but the fact is ,Technical feasibility is the first and foremost thing of concern in our country and then comes the land and cost concerns.

The Mumbai-Ahmedabad corridor is expected to cost Rs60,000 crore. It may be soft loans from Japan or China, but the railways could do better to put this kind of money to upgrade tracks to a standard of 200kmph (credit maher). On the other hand, it would be a pride for India if this project is implemented perfectly.
