Bullet train's logo finalised: NID student's creation will be the emblem of PM Modi's flagship project
It's 'Cheetah' for the logo of India's Bullet train which has recently been finalised by a three-member screening committee chaired by famous painter and architect Satish Gujral, according to media reports.

A student from National Institute of Design (NID) in Ahemdabad has created the logo whose creativity will be a part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's high-speed train project.

"The contest received an overwhelming response from across the country. The dates for submitting the applications were between April 19 and May 18, and around 100 entries were received by the committee from various states," a senior Railways official said.

In the selected logo, while the animal cheetah is a symbol of speed, the red and blue lines represent calmness and reliability, the report further added.

"Three entries were shortlisted after an initial screening. The top entry was selected from NID, Ahmedabad, the second from the School of Planning and Architecture in Delhi, and the third from the NID in Bengaluru," the source said.

On September 14, 2017, PM Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe had laid the foundation stone of the Bullet train project in Ahemdabad, Gujarat.

This ambitious project comes at a total cost of Rs 1.08 lakh crore ($17 billion), under which the first Bullet train will run between Ahmedabad and Mumbai.

This route is likely to cover around twelve stations including Mumbai, Thane, Virar, Boisar, Vapi, Bilimora, Surat, Bharuch, Vadodara, Anand, Sabarmati and Ahmedabad.
