India’s First Bullet Train To Run in June-July 2026

India’s First Bullet Train To Run in June-July 2026

India finalises the deal to acquire the first six Shinkansen (bullet) trains from Japan by the end of the month. The Indian Railways is ‘confident’ that the country’s first bullet train will start operating in June-July 2026 in Gujarat.

By August 15 of this year, the National High Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL) is expected to post all contracts, including the one for the purchase of trains and operational systems.

With the goal of connecting Ahmedabad (Gujarat) and Mumbai (Maharashtra), India is currently building its first bullet train project.

The project’s entire physical progress as of January 2024 was approximately 40%, according to officials, with Gujarat having made more progress (48.3%) than Maharashtra (22.5%).

There is a remarkable progress in Maharashtra in recent months. The state administration has directed all district collectors to complete the handover of the land by this month end. We are working hard to see how we can push the physical progress to compensate for the time we lost because of the earlier Maharashtra government,

A railway ministry official told Times Of India.

The Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train route, which extends to 508 km, will feature services that stop at all stops as well as only a few stations. The all-stop trains will need an extra 45 minutes to arrive at their destination, while the limited-stop services will finish the trip in about two hours.

Six river crossings have also been constructed, and the corridor’s bridge, which is an elevated section, has been finished for more than 100 km in the last year. There are twenty bridges on the Gujarat segment of the road, seven of which have been built.
