Ministry of Railways invites DPR for seven bullet train projects

The Ministry of Railways has decided to move further with seven bullet train projects, including the Mysuru-Bengaluru-Chennai high-speed rail corridor.

It has asked for a detailed project report (DPR) from the National High-Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL) for seven bullet train projects.

The high-speed rail corridor includes Delhi-Varanasi of 942 km, Varanasi-Howrah of 760 km, Delhi-Ahmedabad of 886 km, Delhi-Amritsar of 459 km, Mumbai-Nagpur of 740 km, Mumbai-Hyderabad of 711 km and Chennai-Mysuru of 435 km.

The Budget 2022-23 may announce the bullet train projects. The Railway department had received the DPR from NHSRCL last month for the New Delhi-Varanasi high-speed rail corridor.

The Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed rail corridor is under execution by NHSRCL. According to the spokesperson of NHSRCL, DPR for the Mumbai-Nagpur high-speed rail corridor is in its final stages and will be submitted to the Ministry of Railways in the first quarter (Q1) of FY23.

DPR for five more bullet train projects, including the Mysuru-Bengaluru-Chennai corridor, is also under process, and NHSRCL might complete them by FY23.

A railways official told the media that the Indian Railways has decided to link its major cities with high-speed bullet trains in the future.

After the bullet train project is implemented from Mysuru to Chennai through Bengaluru, it will take two hours and 25 minutes, compared to seven hours in Shatabdi Express, the fastest train on this route with a speed of 110 km per hour. Normally, the train journey takes 10 hours of travelling time between Mysuru and Chennai.

The bullet train will run at 320 km per hour. The distance from Mysuru to Chennai is more than 485 km, while the high-speed rail corridor will be 435 km. It will cover 145 km from Mysuru to Bengaluru in 45 minutes.
