The government has promised that India’s first bullet train will be operational within five years.
The Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Rail (MAHSR) project received Cabinet approval in 2015 and within two years, construction had started. The government had earlier set a deadline for December 2023. However, Union Minister for Railways Piyush Goyal announced last year that the government had advanced the date of completion by more than a year.
Goyal said the bullet train will make its first trip between Mumbai and Ahmedabad on August 15, 2022 — when India completes 75 years of Independence. But what will it take for the bullet train to succeed in India?
