Mumbai-Ahmedabad Bullet Train Project Slows Down

India's first bullet train may fail to meet the 2023 deadline citing various issues. Reportedly, low participation by Japanese companies, cancellation of tenders owing to high rates by bidders, and the coronavirus pandemic are few of the reasons for the delay. Sources suggest that the deadline of the bullet train, slated to operate between Ahmedabad and Mumbai at a speed of 320km/h, has now been extended to 2028.
