The proposed Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train will come with two speed options for the passengers—high-speed and rapid high-speed—and its fare could be in the range of Rs 3,000 to Rs 5,000.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be laying the foundation stone of the Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project with the Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, on September 14.

According to sources, the Railways has planned to run two types of bullet trains on the basis of their speed.

The high-speed train will halt at all ten stations on the proposed high-speed corridor between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, while the rapid high-speed train will halt only at major stations.

Alphi D’souza, sarpanch of the Mobai Gaothan Panchayat (MGP) which organised the awards and food fest said, “The group, by its very formation, pays tribute to our great senior East Indian singers.

We hope to make a youth connect and lure back those who have drifted away from our culture.

“The name Eastiria comes from East for the East Indians and Iria which means an orchestra.

We had an idea of forming a band two years ago, we have performed at community events but this is a first public performance,” said Welbour Gomes, one of the lyricists and singers.

The fare of a first class ticket between Mumbai to Ahmedabad ranges between Rs1,800 to Rs3,000.

Thus, the fare structure of the bullet train is expected to range anywhere between Rs3,000 and Rs5,000, depending on their speed, said officials.

Currently, the air fare between the two cities ranges between Rs1,500 to Rs5,000 depending on the time of booking.
