  • There is no doubt that there will be a revolution in the field of Railways due to this Project. Jobs will increase, trade between Maharashtra and Gujarat will increase, but only when this project will get completed as soon as possible and the trains are on track with passengers.
  • To clear some doubts about its costing is that our country is going to invest only 22000 Cr rupees for the project which is going to be contributed by the two states. For this project we have given a loan of 88000 Cr by JICA with 50 years of refund period and that only with 0.01%. Therefore this project is a challenge to the Indian Economy.
  • It is said that both the states are going to be benefited from this project but my assumptions differ a bit. To be loud and clear Gujarat will be the most profitable in the Success of this project. Because we can see that there are only 4 stops in Maharashtra while 8 stops in Gujarat. So more people in Gujarat will get benefitted.
  • Also it’s a the time to check what amount traffic is there on this route and are those traffic really going to afford this service at the prescribed cost.
  • Let’s consider that the Project is completed and the trains are on track but who are the passengers actually going to travel through this trains? Frankly speaking there will be more people coming to Mumbai as compared to the people going to Gujarat.
  • Most importantly there is an emerging option to the Economic Capital in its own Neighborhood.
  • From a Common man’s perspective it’s not for him directly but indirectly it’s for him in the face of increasing business. Because common man will be benefited only when his boss has some business to do. And if this Bullet Train increases the business then surely the common man will indirectly be benefited.
  • This project will sure bring a reform in the Trade, Railways and Infrastructure of our Nation. This will not only boost the nation’s economy but also in the daily life of our people.

Political Perspective

“Modiji is the Master of Present days GUERRILLA tactics ( Ganimi Kawa in marathi ).”

“I have a strong faith in it because with Japanese money, Japanese efforts, with minimum rate of interest of 0.01% the Project will be completed. And you know who is going to be the most benefited? It seems to be the two mentioned states.. but mostly its his native one.”

  1. Even first train in India which brought a revolution in our country , was running over an even shorter distance of Mumbai to Thane. People then were more eager to accept change. Similar situation is today, where revolution of Bullet train is being brought in India on route of Mumbai to Ahmedabad. People today, should accept the change and welcome with open minds, rather than opposing with political agendas. That’s what I feel
