The Government of India is so keen to introduce bullet trains at enormous cost. Yes, these bullet trains can reduce travel time, but if they indeed come into operation, can we expect the cost to be something similar to air travel? If yes, how many can really afford it?
Will we end up with white elephants?
Instead of such trains, can be really concentrate on making our existing trains run at speeds of up to 200 kms per hour, through advanced technology?
Hundreds of trains do not even have basic facilities, hundreds of railway stations do not even have toilets. Cant we give importance to such issues rather than taking up the bullet trains at enormous cost?
