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.“

the route will be elevated. hence stations should ideally be elevated without interfering with the existing tracks.
as far as stops at virar and dahanu is concerned, I think these are well thought of. Today the suburban network on western line stretches upto dahanu with population increasing here exponentially.
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.

In India only Gujarat state is important. Other state people should not think about any development.

Success of MUM-AHM HST depends on many factors, some are with in the control of IR/Govt and many are out of control.

Govt/IR need to manage it in a better way and try to replicate the Japanese Shinkanshen Model which is financially performing best among all the HSTs including the rich European countries like France, Germany, Italy, Spain, GB etc.

conditions are similar to Japanese conditions i.e. very high traffic potential, The major factor which have to be managed is to keep the prices as low as possible so that a substantial fraction of Middle class, upper middle class can afford it.
.
Economic performance of India in next 8 years is the most crucial factor, if GDP/per capita income increase at fast rate, and benefits passed on to all classes (not just the riches), the paying power of public shall be high enough to avail the HST trains.
.
But the current trend in Indian economy, where state govts & central govts are competing to give almost all kind of subsidies/ privileges to strengthen their vote banks does not gel well for the future of Bullet trains. A major portion of subsidies are syphoned off and give rise to black money. Instead subsidies should be provided to manpower intensive industries so that people get employment and become financially strong.
.
Delhi Mumbai Industrial corridor under implementation is expected to bring in much needed development along the MUM-AHM HST route and a good stream of paxs is expected after some years of operation of HST.
