    The French railway has recently submitted a report to the Union government stating that Delhi-Chandigarh corridor, for which it has carried out a study, will cost about Rs.11,000 crore for the train speed upto 200 km per hour on this route. According to the draft, final report submitted by SNCF, the French railway, to Indian Railways, the 245 km Delhi-Chandigarh corridor, one of the busiest routes in north India, is slated to be the first semi-high speed project being taken up by the Railways with French help. The detailed report will be taken up for finalization by Indian Railways for preparing tendering documents and drawing out an action plan as a way forward. French President Emmanuel Macron is expected to visit India in January 2018, when the project will be formally launched. The railways will sign a MoU with SNCF for expanding the scope of cooperation in the rail sector, including training of drivers of semi-high speed trains and safety and security of train networks. The total travel time will be 2 hours and 2 minutes at a maximum speed of 200 km/h with two stoppages at Panipat and Ambala. Currently, the Shatabdi Express covers the distance in about three hours and 30 minutes, travelling at a maximum speed of 110 km/h. SNCF has submitted the execution strategy and implementation model with detailed project cost involving an upgrade of the route with details of cost analysis and technical parameters. Beside Delhi-Chandigarh, there will be upgrades of seven more routes totaling about 4,000 km, including Mumbai-Goa, Chennai-Hyderabad, Mysuru-Chennai, Delhi-Kanpur, and Nagpur-Secunderabad rail lines.
