New Delhi: After Mumbai to Ahmedabad high-speed corridor, second bullet train project linking Delhi to Varanasi is under process. The project connecting PM Narendra Modi’s Lok Sabha constituency with the national capital is a priority for the ruling BJP government, according to a report.

The Spanish firm M/s INECO-TYPSA-ICT, which was tasked to study the feasibility of the project, on Thursday submitted its report to high-speed rail corporation & railway board, the report said.

More Information:

  • The Delhi-Varanasi project is part of 1474.5 km long Delhi-Kolkata high-speed corridor.
  • It will cut the travel time between the 2 cities from 13 hours to just 2 hours, 37 minutes, if the project becomes a reality.

 The stretch will reportedly pass through-

  1. Aligarh
  2. Agra
  3. Kanpur
  4. Lucknow
  5. Sultanpur
  • The train will take just 1 hour & 38 minutes from Delhi to Lucknow (440 km).
  • The fare of Rs 4.5 per/km was considered as base fare, meaning travel between Delhi to Lucknow will cost at least Rs 1,980 & Delhi to Varanasi will cost around Rs 3,240.
  • If the project starts in 2021, as per the report, the Delhi to Lucknow stretch will be functional by 2029, while Delhi to Varanasi will be operational by 2031.
  • The preliminary cost of the project is estimated to be about Rs 52,680 crore (approx US$ 8231.25 Million).
  • The construction on Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed corridor is likely to start in September this year & become operational by 2024.
