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.“

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.

It's a totally unwanted project. That money could have been used for completing other pending projects. IR too will spend loads of money for this apart from the loan - for the land acquisition etc....

Virar commuters, known for their unruly behaviour towards their counterparts from Borivli, got a taste of their own medicine on Wednesday night, when commuters of a Dahanu-bound train objected to their alighting at Virar.
On Wednesday, the Virar Railway Protection Force (RPF) raided the newly introduced Churchgate-Dahanu train on platform 3 at Virar at 9.50pm following complaints from Virar commuters the previous day. The commuters were forced to travel up to Vaitarna station before they could alight.
The RPF arrested 14 men, all residents of Palghar, and fined them Rs 1,000-2,000. Police said

as the men were preventing Virar commuters from alighting, they had to barge into the train and arrest them. A video of the uniformed cops using their batons and dragging commuters out of the train later went viral.
They were booked under sections 141 (needlessly interfering with means of communication in a train), 145 (nuisance), 146 (obstructing railway servant in his duties). The arrested men were released by 1am. While 10 of them took a private vehicle and got home early on Thursday, the remaining four stayed at their relatives' homes in Vasai-Virar. Nikhil Dixit (22), a student who was among those arrested said he was simply standing near the footboard when the cops pulled him out and charged him.
Over the years, commuters travelling between Andheri to Borivli have complained of high-handedness when they alight at their stations from a Virar-bound train. In fact, as several Virar trains originate at Borivli, commuters wanting to alight at Goregaon, Malad and Kandivli (in a Borivli-bound train) are often blocked by Virar commuters.
Police said complaints of Palghar and Dahanu-bound commuters preventing others from alighting at Virar were pouring in since the ChurchgateDahanu train was introduced on October 10. It leaves Churchgate at 8.27pm, reaches Borivli at 9.15pm and in Virar at 9.50pm. There are seven stations between Virar and Dahanu. The train was introduced after the timing of Saurashtra Mail, which was used by commuters heading beyond Virar, was advanced by an hour. Palghar and Dahanu commuters, who would board this train at Borivli at 9.15pm, now board the local train. The next long-distance train from Virar towards Dahanu arrives at 10.50 pm in Virar.
However, commuters travelling beyond Virar say local and long-distance trains should not halt at Virar. "The Dahanu-bound local should be fast from Borivli. There are many trains for Virar," said Mukul Sinha, a daily Palghar commuter. The Dahanu-bound locals halt at Bhayander, Vasai and Virar.

Great!! but bullying is undesirable who so ever does it.
But third line/second corridor between Virar & Dahanu is necessity. A lot of time has been wasted in planning for the same. Construction should begin at the earliest, else the hapless commuters shall continue to suffer.
