Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday ordered a review of the Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project. Prime Minister Narendra Modi lay the foundation of the bullet train project last year.

Uddhav said, “We have a common man government.” We will review the bullet train project, but I did not ask for stopping the bullet train project. ”Even before Thackeray was sworn in there were reports that the Maharashtra government may stop funding the bullet train project.

The state government also has to contribute 25% in the project

State governments also have to contribute to the funding of the bullet train project. Maharashtra has a 25% share in this. This Congress-NCP-Shiv Sena government claims that it will soon bring a letter on the economic condition of Maharashtra, as the state government has a debt of about Rs 5 lakh crore.

They will start the central government plans by March 2020. The project will have to be completed by December 2023. The survey of the land is still going on for the project in collaboration with Japan. We have not completed land acquisition in the way the bullet train will pass in Gujarat and Maharashtra. They have also prepared a design regarding this. Bullet train will pass from Sabarmati, Ahmedabad to Surajpur Junction railway station. They will also arrange multilevel parking. Underground metro will come out from someplace.

The bullet train project MD Achal Khare had told in September that its fare would be up to about 3,000 thousand rupees. There will be 12 stations in the bullet train corridor between Ahmedabad to Mumbai (508 km).
