Railways needs clarity on target passenger segment 23.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The Indian Railways (IR) has initiated umpteen plans to develop high-speed rail (HSR), semi HSR and increasing the speed of trains on the existing tracks, all aimed at faster train travel. Among these, some plans are getting concretised and may see results in the next five to 10 years. Out of these, the HSR between Ahmedabad and Mumbai is about to start its construction under the aegis of National High-Speed Rail Corporation Limited and is expected to be completed by 2023. The other initiative which is taking shape is Mission Raftaar, by which the average speed of non-suburban passenger trains would increase by about 25 kmph from the current 46 kmph. Also, the average speed of freight trains would increase by about 25 km from 24 kmph in five years.

Although these two routes belong to Group A, where the maximum permissible speed is 130/160 kmph, ...
