India is all set to kick-start its first ever bullet train project which will put the country among the list of those few nations that boast of high-speed rails (HSR).
With the help of Japanese technology, India will develop the bullet train which is supposed to reach a maximum speed of 350 km per hour.
The HSR project, which is going to cost a staggering Rs 1.08 lakh crore, will take around 5 years to complete and will become functional only by 2022.
The bullet train in India will run from Sabarmati, Gujarat to Mumbai, Maharashtra and will cover the 509 km distance between the two cities in mere 2 hours. It should be noted that the fastest trains in the country today take 6-7 hours to travel this distance.
