Suresh Prabhu's dreams: Trains run at 500kmph, cover all distances in max 12 hours
Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, who is known as one of the most efficient ministers in PM Modi's cabinet, has once again set the bar high by envisioning plans that rail passengers should not spend more than 12 hours in trains to travel from one part of India to the other.
At the first ever international conference in India on Technology for Ultra High Speed Rolling Stock, Suresh Prabhu said that the Indian Railways should enter the futuristic field of Ultra High Speed Railways now and work towards building an Indian Technology which is economical and at par with the best.

Suresh Prabhu while inviting all major global players to become part of 'Make in India' said, "I invite all companies, scientists, and inventors to Make In India......We want to ensure that new technologies are made in India, and why just use for India, these players can then provide rolling stock for the world after basing their manufacturing plants here."

He also emphasized the importance of consumer experience in railways and said, "We want to enhance customer experience, safety, bring in speed and augment capacity. The idea is to enhance the average speed of all trains so that everyone benefits."

Member Rolling Stock, Railway Board, Hemant Kumar while speaking to the media said, "His vision (Suresh Prabhu) is to make rolling stock the driver for this major shift from India being a technology importer and manufacturer to becoming a developer and designer for futuristic rolling stock technologies."
