Bullet Trains and Diamond Quadrilateral Network of High Speed Rail

The Minister of Railways Shri D. V. Sadananda Gowda has said that Indian Railways is on its way to fulfill the long cherished dream to run a Bullet Train. Presenting the Railway Budget 2014-15 in Parliament today, he said, the Railways proposes bullet trains by starting off with an already identified Mumbai-Ahmedabad sector, where a number of studies have been done.

The Minster said, under the leadership of Shri Narendra Modiji, the Railways is embarking on an ambitious plan to have a Diamond Quadrilateral Network of High Speed Rail, connecting major Metros and growth centers of the country. A provision of Rs.100 crore has been made in the Budget for high Speed project to RVNL/HSRC (High Speed Rail Corridor) for taking further steps.

He said, while bullet trains would require completely new infrastructure, higher speed for existing trains will be achieved by upgrading the present network. The Minister said, hence, an effort will be made to increase the speed of trains to 160-200 kmph in select sectors so as to significantly reduce travel time between major cities. The Minister said, the identified sectors are:

i) Delhi-Agra
ii) Delhi-Chandigarh
iii) Delhi-Kanpur
iv) Nagpur-Bilaspur
v) Mysore-Bengaluru-Chennai
vi) Mumbai-Goa
vii) Mumbai-Ahmedabad
viii) Chennai-Hyderabad and
ix) Nagpur-Secunderabad.

  1. CA Lalit Munoyat says:

    The so called Garib Rath is beyond the approcah of a Garib considering the recently declared proverty scale i.e Rs. 32 in village and Rs. 47 in city. One thing that we can definitely do is to rename the train at least, so as not to display India as Garib to the World or make Garib Rath affordable to the middle class also.

  2. s sudarshana says:

    I would like the Hon’ble Railway Minister’s to take up the following specific suggestions aimed at helping the “AAMAADMI” WITHOUT much additional capital investment.

    1. He should add at least 4 to 5 unreserved sitting (II) coaches in all the A/C express trains (new as also existing) which normally has less coaches than the normal express trains. These coaches can accommodate equal (A/C seats) passengers and thereby serves the society. This will be a great service as an opportunity for poor man to reach the long distance destination quickly and at lesser price.

    2. Whereever scope exists to add extra coaches to existing trains, 50% must be un-reserved (II) coaches should be provided.

    3. The present system of having un-reserved coaches at the end and at the beginning should be replaced with un-reserved coaches (minimum 2 nos.) at three places, viz, beginning, end and in the middle of the formation (train).

    4. It is a common siight in platforms to see the poorest of the passengers running from one end to another end, a pathetic stight.

    5. This is an opportunity for the ever smiling and an excellent person in Hon’ble Rail Minister (Sri Sadananda Gowdaji) to make many more to smile with him.!
