The proposed Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed corridor is estimated to cost Rs 98,805 crore. The one-way fare will work out to Rs 2,800, about one-and-a-half times the cost of a first-class AC ticket of the Rajdhani Express on the same route. According to the final feasibility report submitted to Railways by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), bullet trains on the 505-km route will achieve a maximum speed of 350 kmph, cutting travel time to two hours.
