Spain has exact same gauges as India. 1676 mm and 1000 mm. So India can import trains from Spain.

New Indian government to push ahead with high-speed projects
Wednesday, May 28, 2014

THE massive electoral win of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in India's recent general election has accelerated plans to build the country's first high-speed line

India's new prime minister Mr Narendra Modi reportedly gave the go-ahead to develop the 545km Mumbai - Ahmedabad line as a showpiece project at a recent meeting with the chairman of India's High Speed Rail Corporation (HSRC) Mr Satish Agnihotri.

Indian Railways (IR) and French National Railways (SNCF) are understood to have developed a detailed business plan for the corridor, the prefeasibility study of which has been completed by a consortium of Systra, Italferr and Rites.

Japan International Cooperation Agency (Jica) is currently preparing a detailed study of the proposed Rs 700bn ($US 12.1bn) corrido, which is scheduled to be submitted in May 2015. Jica is believed to have agreed in principle to part-finance the project by way of a soft loan.

IR is expected to freeze technical specifications and formalise systems contracts ahead of the submission of the Jica report, while the Railways Ministry has started to finalise a status report relating to the financial, technical and business models for all planned high-speed lines.

A prefeasibility report by MottMacdonald on the 1044km New Delhi - Patna line has also been submitted and is under the ministry's consideration, sources said. Project cost is estimated at Rs 1300bn
What a move I think that the government will not disappoint with the promises

New Indian government gives high-speed a push
Tuesday, June 10, 2014

INDIA's new Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government has outlined ambitious plans to build a series of high-speed rail corridors connecting major metropolitan centres during the next 10 years - the so-called "Diamond Quadrilateral" programme.

Although proposals for high-speed rail schemes have been mooted for more than three decades and have gained more credence since 2009, the new government's clear-cut statement of intent carries weight because of the large majority by which the BJP party was voted into power.

"The political will is now there," says an official engaged in the budget preparation exercise. "We intend to take the first concrete measures by providing for administrative and financial sanctions to the 543km Mumbai - Ahmedabad corridor in next month's budget speech by the new railways minister Mr D V Sadananda Gowda. The new railways minister has already asked Indian Railways to prepare a detailed actionable programme for the Mumbai - Ahmedabad corridor, incorporating details of land acquisition and funding options.

"Lack of robust infrastructure is one of India's major impediments," president Pranab Mukherjee said in his address to the joint session of parliament on June 9. "The government will put in place a fast-track, investment-friendly and predictable Public Private Partnership (PPP) mechanism to modernise and revamp the railways and implement big-ticket projects such as high speed rail."

The president's address at the start of the 16th Lok Sabha (India's lower house of parliament) – which outlines the direction, policies and programmes of the new government – says that investment in the railways will be increased using innovative financing methods.

Five other high-speed rail projects are under consideration:
  • Howrah (Kolkata) - Haldia (135km)
  • Hyderabad – Dornakal – Vijaywada - Chennai (664km)
  • Chennai – Bangalore - Thiuruvananthapuram (850km)
  • Delhi – Jaipur – Ajmer - Jodhpur (591km)
  • Delhi - Chandigarh - Amritsar (450km)

Japan, China in race to sell India their high-speed trains
27 August 2014
The Economic Times

NEW DELHI: China and Japan are once again in competition, this time for the lucrative high speed rail network market in India.

The Japanese are already working on a feasibility study for the Shinkansen network on the Ahmedabad-Mumbai corridor, the results of which will be shared with the Indian side in the run-up to the PM's visit to Japan this weekend. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is expected to make a strong pitch for India to buy the Shinkansen high speed network. Kyoto, where Modi lands on Saturday, has the best known Shinkansen connection with Tokyo.

Meanwhile, China, which now has the longest high-speed rail network in the world, is keen to sell their trains to India, at a price much lower than the Japanese. The Chinese president, Xi Jinping, will arrive for his maiden visit to India in mid-September.

Japan is hardselling better quality and higher safety standards, while China is pitching lower costs.

According to officials familiar with developments, Japan, at present enjoys a slight edge largely due to its safety record. China has had at least one spectacular high speed rail accident, killing hundreds. However, the Shinkansen's cost is prohibitively high, and despite having a fail-proof safety and speed system for almost half a century, Japan has not had great success in selling it overseas.

However, a new Japanese entity, International High-Speed Rail Association, comprising all the companies that build high speed railways in Japan will try to convince India about its product in October, said officials. Given the projected cost for each train at around Rs 60,000 crore (as announced by railway minister Sadananda Gowda in his railway budget speech) officials said Japan can sweeten the offer with a better financial deal, including FDI.

China has been sounded out on upgrading India's ageing and inefficient railways infrastructure, even building new stations. But the prize is the bullet trains because they are outright buys. China, which plans to have 19,000 km under high speed rail network from its present 11,000 by 2015, is now looking for private investment into the railway sector. Thus far, it has been funded solely by the government. But Chinese premier Li Keqiang announced on Sunday that henceforth China's railway growth, which he sees as essential for China's development would have to come from private sources.

India is planning to build high speed train networks on other routes such as Delhi-Agra, Delhi-Chandigarh, Mysore-Bangalore-Chennai, Mumbai-Goa and Hyderabad-Secunderabad.

I imagine they'll be quite happy to play the Chinese and Japanese against each other in order to get the best deal. In thet regard, I wouldn't be surprised if both offered to sweeten the deal with cheap loans / PPP deals etc

Hi!
In Spain there never was 1,676 mm wide, there are now 1,668 on conventional lines and before had 1,674 (more in spanish).

High speed line included in India-China railway action plan
22 Sep 2014



INDIA: The Railway Board and China’s National Railway Administration signed a three-year memorandum of understanding and action plan for technical co-operation on September 18, in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and visiting Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Potential areas of co-operation include training 100 Indian Railways staff in heavy haul freight operations; raising speeds on existing routes, starting with Chennai – Bangalore – Mysore which could be upgraded for 160 km/h operation with Chinese support; and pre-feasibility studies for the redevelopment of two stations.

The partners will also work on a feasibility study and detailed project report for a high speed line which could be financed by China. A railway university is to be established in India with Chinese support.

Chinese to study 2000km HS line in India
Friday, November 28, 2014



CHINA Railway Corporation (CRC) will begin a feasibility study early next year of what is billed as the world's longest high speed railway – a 2174km line connecting the Indian capital, New Delhi, with the southern port city of Chennai at an estimated cost of Rs 2 trillion ($US 32.3bn)

The parameters of the study were agreed this week after a series of meetings in China between India's High Speed Rail Corporation (HSRC), Rail Vikas Nigam (RVNL), and China Rail Siyuan Survey and Design Group (CRSSD). The Chinese will conduct the study free-of-charge.
The study follows a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed in New Delhi on September 18 in the presence of India's prime minister Mr Narendra Modi and the Chinese president Mr Xi Jinping. The MoU also establishes a high-speed rail university in India with Chinese assistance and high-speed rail technology training of batches of Indian engineers at Chinese universities

India has a democratic government that isn't exactly known for it's speed or efficiency. Can we expect any actual construction before 2020?

Well, both Japan and South Korea all seem to be able to build HSR with a pretty decent pace, same with Germany, France and even bankrupt Spain.

There are some dictatorships that are trying to build HSR but doing so at a terribly slow pace, and there are those dictatorships that are also doing so at a fairly decent pace. It's more of a general cultural thing, not a form of governance thing. (more about the efficient of governance I suppose)

Obviously, no one can compare to the Chinese in terms of speed and scale, that's simply on another level entirely. Something similar probably won't happen again within our lifetime.

That's certainly what the CCP would like one to believe.

That is a valid point indeed re the cultural factor.

I was talking more in the context of the PRC .
