Bullet train to travel between Delhi and Varanasi in 3 hours

Indian Railway
The railway ministry is evaluating the possible ways to land the bullet train between, Delhi-Varanasi and Delhi-Kolkata.

Under the constituency of Narendra Modi, the center is prioritizing to launch a bullet train project between Delhi and Varanasi. A Spanish firm named, ‘INECO-TYPSA-ICT’ which is studying the feasibility of this project. If there is a possibility for such bullet train in this route, then the journey between these two destinations will lower down to just two and a half hours for 720 km instead of 12 hours now.

The same firm is working on Delhi-Kolkata high-speed corridor and has already submitted the final draft report to high-speed rail corporation and railway board last week.

Hence if such project got implemented, then it would cost only ₹4.5 per km which means if we need to travel from Delhi to Lucknow then it would cost at least ₹1,980 and for Delhi to Varanasi will cost around ₹3,240.

The construction on Mumbai-Ahmedabad corridor will start in September this year while the Mumbai-Nagpur stretch is on the advanced stage of getting approvals.
