A railway official said the train would take 2 hours and 58 minutes to cover the distance if it took 10 halts, adding that with just two halts - at Surat and Vadodara - the travelling time would come down to two hours and seven minutes. The minister added that bullet trains will also boost employment in India in a big way and that in future India will be able to export bullet trains too. Starting from Mumbai's BKC business district, the train will cover a distance of 21 kms inside a tunnel, of which, 7 km will be under the sea. The 50-year-period loan is being given to India at 0.1 per cent. Goyal said such an attractive loan was perhaps one of the cheapest in the world for infrastructure financing. It will stop at each of the 12 railway stations on the route precisely for 165 seconds!
Of the 508-km stretch, 92 per cent of the route will be elevated; six per cent in the tunnel and the rest two per cent will be on the ground.
The opposition-led by Congress has attacked the Modi dispensation over the plan to execute the capital intensive bullet train project when the existing railway network is suffering due to underinvestment. "Railway ministry has opted for Shinkansen technology as it has been a zero accident train in Japan and I am sure the track record will remain the same in India". India's Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train is a Rs 1 lakh crore project which involves construction of a 505-km line using Japan's Shinkansen technology. The high-speed train will halt at all ten stations on the proposed high-speed corridor between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, while the rapid high-speed train will halt only at major stations. The facilities at this institute will be utilized to train about 4,000 staff in next three years, who will then be utilized for operation and maintenance ensuring that this work is through skilled people in India rather than foreign dependent.
