Delhi-Mumbai in 10 hours by train?
NEW DELHI: In the next four years, you can hope to reach Mumbai from Delhi in just 10 hours boarding a superfast train. Similarly, the journey from Delhi to Howrah could be completed in just 12 hours.
The railways has set the target to increase the maximum speed of trains on these routes to 160 kmph to cut down the travel time between the national capital and financial capital by five hours and save five-and-half-hours' journey time between Delhi and Kolkata. The fastest trains now (Rajdhani) can run at maximum speed of 130 kmph.
This is among the clutch of proposals that the railways has finalised as a part of its 100-day agenda under the second edition of the Narendra Modi go nment. The railways estimates to spend about Rs 13,500 crore in shoring up the national transporter's infrastructure over the next four years.

Fantastic! Great achievements by Modi.

Absolutely. Had Modi been in power for the last 20 years then Mumbai to Delhi would have been possible in less than 3 hours. Congress really cheated the people for 60 years. Our Make in India initiatives has produced some great super fast locomotive. Soon we will be exporting the engines and our forex reserves will explode even further.

lucky to have piyush goel as railway minister. He is man of actions like Gadkari. In near future we will see so many new developments.

We are lucky to have Narendra Modi as our PM. If 10% of the politician work to have the dedication like him, no one can stop India from reaching heights never seen before.

All these sounds good. But, let the basics of running trains ON TIME be seriously implemented. This will repose faith of passengers in railways.
Om Prakash • Ludhiana, Punjab, India • 7 hours ago
The punctuality data of railways is very bad. Just by increasing the speed of trains will not help. Traffic management needs tremendous improvement.
Anand • 55 mins ago
Great. Speed and quality should go hand in hand.

Ridiculous. China has had trains travelling at speeds of nearly 400 Km per hour for decades and here these guys are making a big deal about 160 Kph in the 21st century. If you think at slow speeds you get slow speed results.

Have some sense. It cannot be done overnight. It needs decades of planning implantation and funds. The first bullet train on its way. Slowly all major cities will be covered.

Modi Baba answer for below
Distance between mumbai to banglore -1000 kms and time taken train -about 24 hours (that too if luckily train on time,which mostly are not on this route)
Distance between mumbai to delhi-about 1450 kms and time taken train -about 15 hours (most of time trains are prompt)
why banglore is so ignored being IT HUB

Fast train in India is a risky. Accident prone tracks needs to repair.
