  2. Respected Sir/Madam Waha bhi railway tracks jam kardengi public like Punjab state. Before investment in project our government should clear lines first then not 7 we can take 700 projects.

  3. I am glad to hear the complete connectivity plan of high speed intercity projects of NHSRCL, and would like to congratulate the team.
    I have few thoughts to share with you from the Infrastructute Planning perspective and will appreciate inputs:
    (1) the effectiveness of newly established NHSRCL is more than the classical institute,
    (2) a national level high speed master plan if prioritised and implemented can ensure fast connectivity thus ensuring economic growth,
    (3) role of local and state transport institutions such as metro, BRTS, regional trains, high speed trains can ensure seamless connectivity however uncoordinated efforts may turn into complete chaos,
    (4) our focus must remain to complete existing projects incl Ahmedabad- Mumbai by removing few last hurdles rather diverting focus to new projects,
    (5) availability of Expert manpower for technology oriented projects remain a challenge, thus our focus must remain to train and produce manpower to consume new insights related to construction, communication, sensor and decision making. Not only government institutions but focused private Universities too given a chance for training,
    (6) like Japan or Germany at least one Professor from the domain must be kept on the board of newly established entities ensuring transfer of knowledge from projects to future professionals as well from lab to project implication.
    Looking forward for your inputs.
