If all goes as planned, the train travel time between the national and the commercial capitals of India could soon come down by at least half. According to railway officials, the infrastructure for the Golden Rail Corridor, which will have trains running at semihigh speed (160-200 kmph) between New Delhi and Mumbai, is likely to cost around Rs 5,000 crore. The cost, they say, is relatively low as the railways will not have to acquire land for the project. - Is this a nice news ?
They should first better concern over rail accidents that has become a daily routine..Leave alone long term planning for development, even for routine daily running & maintenance, a lot of technical and managerial skills are required. The ministers that we have over the years could not even comprehend the requirements and merely used the office to further his/her political interest. Keeping fares unchanged for years is only populism and ignores the urgent need of safety and upkeepment. Indian Railways is a very important segment of the country's transport infrastructure but the department was running with out a full time minister for a good amount of time.

Very good annoucement but will not become a reality the airport metro was built to run aT 120 kmph but is not attaining that spped. when metro cant do it, can the railways which are tecnologically miles behind, how can they do it. as they it sounds too good to be true.
last year there was an annoucement for a double decker train delhi to jaipur running time two hours. uska kaya hua ????
