The exact same high-speed practice will enable you full a journey between Delhi to Lucknow inside 2 hours. Indian Railways, in its transfer to scale back the practice journey time on the Golden Quadrilateral, has requested for varied high-speed rail feasibility research to be undertaken. The draft closing report of 1 such research for the Delhi-Kolkata stretch is prepared and proposes that with a bullet practice, individuals will be capable to journey between Delhi-Varanasi in 2 hours and 37 minutes, and between Delhi-Lucknow in 1 hour and 38 minutes.

How a lot would a practice ticket price? The report assumes a base fare of Rs 4.5 per kilometre. This is able to imply that for travelling between Delhi to Varanasi you’ll have to shell out a minimum of Rs 3,240 (720*4.5) and for Delhi to Lucknow the minimal fare would work out to be Rs 1,980 (440*4.5).
Excessive-Velocity Rail Company is the nodal company for these feasibility research. Delhi-Mumbai and Mumbai-Chennai bullet practice corridors are additionally beneath the Excessive-Velocity Rail Company. Feasibility research are additionally being undertaken for the Delhi-Chandigarh and Delhi-Amritsar corridors. The development for Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet practice mission – India’s first bullet practice mission – will begin in September this yr and is anticipated to be prepared by 2023. Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu has stated that the price of travelling in a bullet practice will probably be lower than air fares. In the meantime, Indian Railways can be engaged on Mission Raftaar to double the common speeds of freights trains and improve the common velocity of superfast mail/specific trains by 25 km/hr within the subsequent 5 years.
