  1. While appreciating the achievement of acquiring over 90% of the land required for Mumbai – Ahmedabad Bullet Train Project, it is pertinent to Note that while over 98% of Land has been acquired in Gujarat, only around 71.50% of land has been acquired in Maharashtra and there is a long way to go as the process of acquiring Land in Maharashtra is comparatively slow. Though the Bullet Train is between Mumbai & Ahmedabad, we do not know, when it will start or terminate at the Mumbai Station. If, further land acquisition is likely to be delayed for any reason whatsoever, the concerned Authority must concentrate to implement the Project on whatever the land they have acquired so far, so as to make the project operational for the benefits of the Travelers/Passengers.
