impossible to complete this by 2022
It is only when the trains start running that we will know the actual cost for the travel The spin-off from the project will be immense especially with technology transfer and work ethics. Already a good start has been made and I hope the time table for the completion is maintained.
This is good news...this huge project has started moving within such a short span of time indicates the execution capabilities of the current govt...
WELL DONE. OFF COURSE GOOD NEWS.

A quick Google search shows that flight cost is under 3000rs and takes 30min less time. This project makes no market sense.
Airfare between Mumbai and Ahmedabad is Rs 1729 today. 1 hour 10 minutes flight.
a good start.Hope for best
Land acquisition is itself is going to be big problem. Completion in 2022 can happen in dream. India is meant for delay in completion schedule with over run of cost
