IR has been using same coach design for 50 years, and most of our trains are non a/c, so even the newer coaches get small window design from the old style coaches, and The refusal of Indian government until recently buy things from abroad.

And no, The first HSR construction is supposed to start in 2017

I am curious why India use broad gauge instead of standard gauge.
Would this not increase the coast of development and maintenance in the long term?
Railway in India was started earlier than in China, led by the British.
China has subsequently not only overtaken , but has become a world powerhouse for railway.
This is due to both public policies and investments into the sector.

Most officials prefer to fly, railway ministers, until the latest one, were content to add a couple of trains to their states and be done with it.
Only very recently we are actually modernising as seen with new LHB coaches and new locomotives ordered from GE and Alstom.

The reason seems to be that in the steam engine days broad gauge allowed for a larger firebox, which was practical on long steep grades. Also the stability at speed in cross winds is better with a broader gauge. In hindsight a very good choice, because they can now still profit from the very generous loading gauge allowing for 3,66m wide and 5,3m high rolling stock.

India has 105000 km of broad gauge track, which is the infrastructure of France, Germany and the UK put together. That alone is enough of a critical mass to prevent excessive cost increases. Also it is much easier to widen and heighten an existing standard gauge design then it is to narrow and lower it. Siemens has done exactly that with Velaros for Russia and China.
