On 14 September 2017 Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe lay the foundation stone for India’s first bullet train project which is expected to be completed by 2022 at an estimated cost of Rs 1.10 lakh crore.
The Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train project is likely to traverse the distance of over 500 km between the two cities in around two hours.
Japan has extended a soft loan for the ambitious project conceptualised by PM Modi. The two leaders will also hold the 12th Indo-Japan annual Summit meeting at Gandhinagar after which agreements will be exchanged.
