Ahmedabad bullet train: Fare, distance, route, and other fast facts

IIT Kanpur alumni Sanjeev Sinha appointed as advisor for Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train

Piyush Goyal confident Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train project will be ready one year before schedule

Drawing a parallel with Maruti cars, Goyal said: "The bullet train project will have the impact on rail technology as Maruti had on the country's automobile sector 30 years ago", he said. He is a prominent Indian resident of Japan for 21 years. On the Ahmedabad-Mumbai route, total 12 stations have been proposed that include Mumbai, Thane, Virar, Boisar, Vapi, Bilimora, Surat, Bharuch, Vadodara, Anand, Ahmedabad and Sabarmati. Piyush Goyal said that the high-speed rail was envisioned by PM Modi to take Indian Railways towards most modern technologies like developed countries.

"With an interest rate of negligible 0.1 percent over an exceptionally long 50 years term and a no-repayment moratorium for first 15 years, the funding from Japan for the High Speed Rail, called Shinkansen in Japan, is nearly like a grant based on standard financial valuation calculations", Sinha had earlier said.

The Mumbai-Ahmedabad high speed rail project is a key project of the NDA government that is expected to reduce the travel time between two cities by almost five hours. The minister added that bullet trains will also boost employment in India in a big way and that in future India will be able to export bullet trains too. According to sources, the Railways has planned to run two types of bullet trains on the basis of their speed.

On Tuesday, Sanjeev Sinha, former Tata executive working in Tokyo was appointed as the advisor for India's Bullet Train project. If the bullet train will stop at all 12 stations, then it will cover the distance in two hours and fifty-eight minutes.

The total distance of 508 km between Ahmedabad and Mumbai would be covered in 2 hours 7 minutes stopping at 4 stations, and complete the distance in 2 hours 58 minutes if covering all 12 stations.

The 508 km long HSR line will connect Mumbai, the capital city of the State of Maharashtra, with Ahmedabad, the second most populous metropolitan area in India, located in the State of Gujarat.

Ethnically, Singapore is 74 percent Chinese, 13 percent Malay, 9 percent Indian and 3.2 percent are classified as "other". She will be sworn in at a later date. "I will serve Singapore and Singaporeans with great passion and commitment".

To ensure safety and prevent delays on account of land acquisition, railway has decided that 92 percent of the route will be elevated, 6 percent in tunnel and only 2 percent will be on the ground. Japan is a pioneer in high-speed rail networks, and its Shinkansen bullet train is among the fastest in the world. "Railway ministry has opted for Shinkansen technology as it has been a zero accident train in Japan and I am sure the track record will remain the same in India".

Moreover, Goyal said that this move will open 20,000 construction jobs. With Indian Railways adopting such technologies, the bullet train was an endeavour to bring economic growth and prosperity in the country. He further added that a dedicated High-Speed Rail Training Institute is being developed at Vadodara which will be functional by the end of 2020. This train will have the capacity to accommodate 750 people.

National High Speed Rail Corporation Limited has been founded by the Indian Ministry of Railways to implement the MAHSR.
