Bullet Trains may soon hit India

Bullet Trains may become a reality in India in the near future. The Railways have ordered a feasibility study on this issue. A special panel has been formed to overview this process and a private firm will be employed to study the technical aspects in the implementation of this system.

The study will determine whether these trains could be operated in India and whether it should be operated overhead or on the ground. If it is possible to operate them on the surface then the compatibility with the existing system for their coexistence has to be checked. This will require tremendous amount of study and research. It is estimated that speeds close to 300Kmph can be achieved in India. This will greatly reduce the travel period and is highly suitable for a country like India with overflowing population. The Railways are confident of the project which might take a long time to implement but at least it is a step in the right direction.
