Name and Mascot Design Competition for Mumbai-Ahmedabad High Speed Rail

National High-Speed Rail Corporation Ltd (NHSRCL) is a joint venture between Govt. of India (through ministry of railways) and participating state governments (Gujarat & Maharashtra).
NHSRCL is mandated to build India’s first high speed rail (commonly known as Bullet Train) between Mumbai & Ahmedabad.

With the construction of High-Speed rail corridor, India will join the elite club of 15 nations having this sophisticated technology within our reach. This project will bring a world-class cutting-edge technology to the service of this nation along with the transfer of technology from Japan.
Mumbai – Ahmedabad High Speed Rail will cover distance of 508 Km in approximately three hours while covering twelve stations in Maharashtra, Gujarat and Union territory of Dadra & Nagar Haveli.

The High-Speed Rail (HSR) project apart from being a technological marvel, would afford many quantifiable benefits like saving in travel time, vehicle operation cost, reduction in pollution, job creation, reduction in accidents/ enhanced safety, imported fuel substitution, and reduction in pollutants. The project will also boost the infrastructure and add to the growth of economy.

NHSRCL is organizing a contest for the name and mascot for India’s first high speed train. Name and Mascot should represent the true nature of high speed rail and all the socio-economic benefits that will come with the introduction of this technology in India.
