Railways to set up body to run high-speed trains

The railways has decided to set up a National High-Speed Rail Authority (NHSRA) to expedite high-speed train project which is likely to be introduced in the country soon. The railways has drafted a Bill in this connection which is likely to be moved in Parliament.

According to a Railway Board official, the railways intends to set up an autonomous body to implement and monitor the high-speed train project across the country. Since high-speed trains would run at the maximum speed of 300 km per hour, a legislation is required to set up the authority, he said.

  1. Hello!

    The NHSRA becoming a success depends on the model for construction and finance of the High Speed Railway. The finance and construction has to be done with private partnership. The Indian Railways does not have the finance and expertise to construct it. I hope the Indian Government gets it right on this one.
