Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project to be completed by 2023: Piyush Goyal
NEW DELHI: Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail (MAHSR), also known as Bullet Train Project, has been sanctioned with a target to be completed by 2023, the Rajya Sabha was informed on Friday.
In a written reply to Dr Vikas Mahatme, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said that the MAHSR project of 508-kilometre length has been sanctioned by the Government.
"This project is being executed by a special purpose vehicle namely National High-Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL), with the financial and technical assistance from the Government of Japan. The total estimated cost of the project is Rs 1,08,000 crore," he said.
So far, the expenditure of Rs 3226.8 crore has been incurred on the project up to June 2019, he said in his statement.
Responding to when will the Government expand the bullet train network all over the country, the Minister of Railways informed: "Bullet Train or High-Speed Rail Projects are highly capital and technology-intensive, and therefore, their proposals for other sections are subject to technical feasibility, financial and economic viability and availability of funding".

Criminal waste of money, effort and time on this bullet train. Modi''s ego is the reason for this. Forcefully acquiring prime fertile agricultural land and displacing thousands of people. Instead of improving the existing infrastructure and trains, this is all being done because China has bullet trains, so India should also have.

Bullet train for the benefit of Gujarat with more stations . If terminus was constructed in railway land in either Kurla or bandra or panvel it would have saved MMRDA crores of rupees.

Bullet Train is nice move to connect between big cities. Next should be run between Mumbai and New Delhi the two major and most important cities of India. It''s very difficult to get train or plane tickets. Always need to book much in advance.

Hope that people do not oppose this forward looking and modern approach to travel, needed for an aspiring country with different standards of living.,Ultimately all cities will be linked by high speed trains may be in next 2 decades. Imagine how India will look like.,Similar to how metro is now being done though late, let us start bullet train at least. Already so many nations have it and all tourists love it.

By that time, the population will be so much that they will convert the bullet train into local train.

Please don't oppose modern travel projects just because something else is not working well. If your argument was right even modern metro and airports and solar projects are a waste.,You must support forward looking ideas if you want a modern country for future generations

Indian has to start with at least one bullet train to understand the technology behind such trains and also to improve safety in the other sectors of the railway. Air travel is likely to become prohibitive soon as the fossil fuels run out and in any case, they are heavily polluting.
