to visit India.
The train is expected to co The train is expected to co ver 508km in about two hours, running at a maximum speed of 350kmph and operating speed of 320kmph. Railways hope to complete the project by December 2023.
A senior official said, “As per the tentative programme, the bhoomi pujan will be done at the hands of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Japanese PM. The event is most likely to be held in Gujarat.“
An India-Japan joint statement issued during Modi's visit in November 2016 had stated, “The two Prime Ministers recognised the importance of accelerating the Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Rail (MAHSR) project by holding the groundbreaking ceremony in 2017.“
Estimated to cost Rs 97,636 crore, 81% funding for it will come by way of a loan from Japan.The estimate includes possible cost-escalation, interest during construction and import duties. It is a soft loan for 50 years at 0.1% annual interest with a 15-year moratorium.
An official said, “This is show-piece project and the government will definitely want to show progress on the project to the people of Gujarat.“

Today if a person wants to go to virar from bkc by ola or meru, you will have to shell out a minimum of Rs. 1200 and would take a minimum of 90 minutes.
