Share post:


Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Thursday gave green signal to the upcoming Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project terming it as of ‘national importance.

The court passed an order while rejecting a plea of Godrej & Boyce Manufacturing Co. challenging the acquisition of its land in Vikhroli Mumbai suburb.

Division bench of Justice R. D. Dhanuka and Justice M. M. Sathaye said that “there are no irregularities in the acquisition”…, and declined to stay the project.

The government and the Godrej group have been squabbling over the acquisition of the company’s land in 2019 for what is considered as Modi’s pet project coming up with Japanese collaboration.

The bullet train project will be 508 kms long, including 21 kms running underground and one of the entry points to the subterranean tunnel will fall on the land owned by Godrej in Vikhroli which was taken over by the government.
