India’s first bullet train dream will soon be a reality with Prime Minister Narendra Modiand his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe laying the foundation stone for the ambitious project today. Not just that, if Indian Railwayshas its way, you may get to travel on the Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train in less than 5 years time! The Narendra Modi government has set an ambitious deadline of starting the bullet train on August 15, 2022 – the day that India marks its 75th year of Independence. The gigantic infrastructure project that is going to cost India approximately Rs 1,10,000 crore.

The bullet train or high-speed train project was originally scheduled to be completed in 2023, but Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has been quoted as saying that PM Modi is confident that Indian engineers will achieve the feat in lesser time. The bullet train project, which has been in works for some years now, was given the clearance by Modi government in 2015.

The unprecedented scale of the infrastructure projects assumes special significance given the fact that it comes under ‘Make in India’. Not only that, Piyush Goyal is confident that once India absorbs the technology of making bullet trains, it will be able to export to the world as well! That’s just one amazing fact about the project, though! From a 7 kilometre long under-sea tunnel to a maximum speed of 350 kmph.
