This is wonderful Sourabh, u seem 2've done tremendous hard-work, packed-with-scientifique details too.
However my idea is to seek every possible & esteemed association to let in India establish first-ever, multi-Crores, 600-KiloMeters, RapidRailRoute-(passenger+cargo), travelling within 4-hours, halting-interimly on-multiple-stops, possibly elevated on Concrete/Steel-Pylons, connecting-3-States, reaching-end-destinations @ 5.30-to-9.30 Morn'g&Even'g (for commuting-passengers), say-thro'-PPP/JV/BiLateral, of a kind there's none prevailing in India, hence. WealthySpanishFinance available upto IN'Rs.2.0/-LakhCrores for all above. pl' respond if interested to - e'm: asiandevelopmentsociety(at)gmail(dot)com.
