Yes, you read that just right. After Mumbai and Kolkata, Amritsar has also fallen in line to become a quick commute from town with the proposal to introduce a bullet train on this corridor in the next couple of years.
It is being said that this train will run between Delhi & Amritsar via Chandigarh, at a speed of 300km/hr to cover the entire distance in just two hours and three minutes, thus shortening the travel time to one-third of the current duration. *WOW*!
The base fare has been recommended at Rs 4.5/km, which if followed would cost a passenger Rs 2061 to travel from Delhi-Amritsar on a bullet train. However, there may be a lil. more waiting involved since the project may take anywhere between 6 to 8 years to be completed.
Sooner or later, we love the fact that such an initiative is being considered and we cannot wait to witness this travel revolution sweep the country with many more high-speed travel corridors being introduced in the near future!
