India will soon see bullet trains running on seven prominent new routes. Reportedly, the routes are—Varanasi to Howrah via Patna; Delhi to Varanasi via Noida, Agra and Lucknow; Delhi to Amritsar via Chandigarh, Ludhiana and Jalandhar; Delhi to Ahmedabad via Jaipur and Udaipur; Mumbai to Hyderabad via Pune; Mumbai to Nagpur via Nasik; and Chennai to Mysuru via Bangalore.

The latest to make it to the list is the 453 km high-speed rail corridor between Mysuru-Bengaluru-Chennai, which will likely turn into a reality soon. This is one of the seven routes that
have been recently finalized. The said bullet train will run at a speed of 320 km per hour. And while the actual distance between Mysuru and Chennai is more than 485 km, the bullet corridor will be around 435 km. Thus, if the speed of the train is calculated, it will cover 145 km distance in just 45 min, i.e, from Mysuru to Bengaluru.

The Railway Board has already written to the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) regarding this, and have provided all the required details of seven high-speed rail corridors for running bullet trains. Currently, the Indian Railways is in the process of preparing the blueprint of the said high-speed rail routes.

The Indian Railways and NHAI will soon begin the process of acquiring additional land, in which the bullet trains will run on seven new routes; thereby, providing the country a huge network of high-speed trains. Reportedly, NHAI will start the task of procuring land to lay tracks for the project along the greenfield expressways.

Is this just a stupid headline or a prediction? First route announced about 5 years back is at least 5 years away from reality. Now 7! News providers may never provide their estimate about "soon".

This is nothing more than a wish list.
Current Rail infra is poor in Karnataka, doubling, electrification or new line construction are so slow that they themselves will take 5 yrs or more. This bullet train will not materialize in next 10 yrs

Considering present situation, We can see Bullet trains running at these routes after between 10-15 years.
It will take around 1 years foe route finalized. After that DPR and other details will take around 3 years.
It can be manifesto of central government in 2024 elections and construction will start just before 2029 elections.
