There has been much discussion about bullet trains in India for many years.

The dream of Vande Bharat trains has already come true, and now is the time for bullet train.

Indian Railways is preparing to launch its own indigenous bullet train, which is expected to run at the speed of up to 250 kilometres per hour.

The bullet trains will be operated on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad High-Speed Rail Corridor.

Reports claim that these trains are likely to be built on the Vande Bharat platform.

In 2018, the cost to build a 10-coach bullet train was Rs 389 crore, but by 2023, this cost had increased to Rs 460 crore, according to reports.
