The Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe laid the foundation stone of much touted project of bullet train in Ahmadabad on Thursday. The two Prime Ministers inaugurated the Mumbai Ahmadabad high speed bullet train project at a ceremony near Sabarmati Railway station.

Government believes that this project will revolutionise and transform the railways.

It is expected that once this project gets completed, it will reduce the travel time between Ahmadabad and Mumbai, as the train will run with a high speed of 320 to 350 KM per hour. It will take only two hours to reach the destination in comparison to existing 7-8 hours.

There are twelve stations have been proposed on the Ahmedabad- Mumbai route, these are as follow:

Mumbai, Thane, Virar, Boisar, Vapi, Bilimora, Surat, Bharuch, Vadodara, Anand, Ahmedabad and Sabarmati.

The 508 Km long Mubai to Ahmedabad High Speed Rail (MAHSR) project is scheduled to be completed in December 2023 but the commencement date has been sought to be advanced to August 2022.

It is said that this project will create around 15 lakh new job opportunities in India.

Meanwhile, critics say that the funds could have been better utilized in improving the current conditions of the Indian Railways. It is notable that the Indian Railways have witnessed a number of setbacks in the form of derailments and accidents.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is hosting the Japanese Prime Minister in Ahmadabad, Gujarat received Abe and his wife Akie at airport, breaking the protocol, on Wednesday.

After laying the foundation stone of bullet train the two Prime Minister visited the Dandu Kutir, a museum dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi.
