The introduction of the country’s first bullet train, known as the Shinkansen in Japan and expected to be operational in 2022, will mark India’s shift to an era of high-speed trains capable of hitting speeds of up to 350 kilometres per hour.
Passengers travelling on India’s first superfast bullet train may have to pay for the luggage they check in. To discourage travellers from carrying heavy luggage, the National High Speed Rail Corporation (NHSRCL), which is executing the project linking Mumbai and Ahmedabad, plans to charge them for the bags they check in.
- Indians are habitual of carrying more luggage than Japanese, and charging for extra luggage shall certainly motivate them to travel light. Passengers travelling with less than 10 kg baggage may be provided free snacks and ones travelling above 20 kg may be charged @ 1% of ticket charge.
-Indians also carry more baggage under their skin than Japanese!! Bullet train fare may charge 1% of ticket fare for every kg of adult passenger weight over & above 75kg. This will motivate obese paxs to lose weight and save money thereby moving towards healthy India.
India has one of the least obesity rate around the world and it's definitely below Japan. Time to do some research for Essay writing 😉
