Bullet trains may soon become a reality in India with the government giving its nod to the proposal of a high-speed rail corridor between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, which would reduce the travel time between the two financial hubs to two-and-half hours from seven hours.
The 500km route would be a test case for other routes in India and for extending high-speed rail outside of countries with either a rich history of rail experimentation (as in Europe or Japan) or heavy-handed state control (like its neighbor China).
