The nation’s steel fabrication standards do not match the Japanese standards required for high speed rail, said Achal Khare, managing director of National High Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL), which is implementing the Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train project.

A steel fabrication unit will soon be set up in India in cooperation with a Japanese ...
