India's ambitious Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project, expected be constructed by August 2022, has hit a land acquisition hurdle in Maharashtra following stiff resistance from local communities and tribal villages of Palghar district. 

More than 70 tribal villages of Palghar district in Maharashtra have refused to give land for the project and an agitation is building up against the proposed rail corridor that will pass through these villages. 

The train connecting the capitals of Maharashtra and Gujarat would have 110 km of the corridor passing through Palghar district. 

“We are facing resistance in some parts of Maharashtra but are hopeful that the construction of the project will begin as per our timeline. We are offering five times the circle rate of land as compensation to people whose land is being acquired,” a railway ministry official said. 

use is with acquisition of around 200 hectares of land to be acquired in Palghar district villages. These, mostly tribal villages, are averse to any kind of development. Also, local politics is playing out even in the case of project which has so much national importance,” the official added. 

“Out of these 73 villages, 50 could agree soon as the dialogue with them is on. The main problem is the remaining 23 villages who don’t want any kind of engagement with railways. They even manhand.

The construction for India’s first high-speed train project, the 508-km long train corridor, was to begin in January 2019 and the deadline for land acquisition was the end of this year.

TIES BLOSSOMED
Ties between India and Japan have blossomed as Modi and Abe increasingly see eye-to-eye in countering growing Chinese assertiveness across Asia.
Japanese investment into India has surged in areas ranging from automotives to infrastructure in the remote northeast, making Tokyo its third-largest foreign direct investor.
India and Japan are also trying to move forward on a plan for New Delhi to buy Japanese amphibious aircraft--ShinMaywa Industries' US-2--in what would be one of Tokyo's first arms transfers since ending a self-imposed embargo.
Tokyo hopes that by gaining a head start on rival exporters of rail technology such as China and Germany, its companies will be able to dominate business in one of the most promising markets for high-speed rail equipment.
In 2015, China won a contract to assess the feasibility of a high-speed link between Delhi and Mumbai, part of a network of more than 10,000 km of track India wants to set up, but little progress has been made.
Bullet train critics say the funds would be far better spent to modernise India's slow and rickety state-controlled rail system, the world's fourth largest.
But a $15 billion safety overhaul has hit delays as a state steel firm proved unable to fill demand for new rail.

The move by Abe, who starts a two-day visit to India on Wednesday, highlights an early lead for Japan in a sector where the Chinese have also been trying to secure a foothold, but without much success.
Modi has made the 500-kilometer, high-speed rail link between the financial hub of Mumbai and the industrial city of Ahmedabad in western Gujarat a centerpiece of his efforts to showcase India's ability to build cutting-edge infrastructure.
The leaders will launch the start of work on the line on Thursday, India's railways ministry said in a statement.
"This technology will revolutionize and transform the transport sector," said Railways Minister Piyush Goyal, welcoming the prospects for growth brought by Japan's high-speed Shinkansen technology.
In Tokyo, a Japanese foreign ministry official told reporters, "We would like to support 'Make in India' as much as possible," referring to Modi's signature policy to lure investors in manufacturing.
"And for that, we want to do what's beyond the Mumbai-Ahmedabad line and achieve economies of scale."
India would make "all-out efforts" to complete the line by August 2022, more than a year earlier than planned, the government said this week.
