1 DELHI-AGRA-LUCKNOW-VARANASI-PATNA International Seminar on "High Speed Trains in India - Issues & Options“ 1st & 2nd February 2013 New Delhi.

2 General Vision 2020 identified 6 HSR corridors for pre-feasibility study (PFS) Delhi-Agra-Lucknow-Varanasi-Patna is the longest Corridor 1000+ km long corridor passes through densely populated, Northern India’s fertile Gangetic Planes Connects Delhi with all major cities of UP and Bihar’s capital Patna; These cities are also important historical and religious tourist destinations Kanpur, Allahabad and Mathura are other major cities on the corridor


4 GENERAL Mott Macdonald selected for PFS; Submitted report in 2011 JICA submitted a report on HSR between Delhi-Agra- Kanpur in 1987; Speed in the range of 250 kmph Project dropped in 2001 perhaps because of high cost and financial unviability

5 Existing Transport Infrastructure The corridor generally lies on the densely saturated Delhi- Kolkata IR trunk route A separate Eastern DFC is being constructed which is expected to free additional capacities for running of passenger trains in the existing IR route All these cities are also well connected by road (NH-2 and other Highways) as well as airports Yamuna Expressway ( 6 lane road) between Delhi – Agra opened in 2012

6 Noida-Agra Yamuna Expressway  Access Controlled, 6-lane, upgradable to 8 lane

7 Noida-Agra Yamuna Expressway  165 KM ; Total Cost Rs 13300 Crores ( @ Rs 80 Cr/KM)  100 mts wide right of way

8  A Greenfield airport proposed along the expressway Noida-Agra Yamuna Expressway

9  Liberal property development rights to promoter Jaypee group  A number of residential and commercial real estate projects coming up Noida-Agra Yamuna Expressway


11 Conditions for suitability of HSR Corridor Existence of populous cities in the mid distance range of 200-800 km, having high and concentrated demand for travel High disposable income and paying capacity of the travelling public Existing transport infrastructure are saturated High GDP growth rate Other Factors Non availability of cheap, local source of oil in plenty Airports are located far from city centres Increasing environmental and sustainability concerns

12 Why HSR International historical experience - as economy develops conventional rail (speed 110-130 kmph) unable to hold its market share Negative effects of overdependence on Roads and airways congestion environmental degradation, depleting oil reserves road accidents

13 More energy efficient, land efficient and environmental friendly than Roads and Airways CO2 per passenger-kilometer - HSR 30-70 grams, automobiles 150 gms and 170 grams for airplanes. A double track HSR equivalent to twice the capacity of a six lane Highway Energy efficiency – Fuel consumption of HSR – about 1/3 rd of that of aircraft and 1/5 th of that of private car. HSR provides more frequent, convenient, reliable service Why HSR

14 Suitability of HSR in Indian Context India has emerged as one of the fastest growing developing country during last decade; Growing middle class with disposable income Rapid urbanization Growth in demand for intercity transport specially between metropolitan areas and 2 nd /3 rd tier cities Inter-city car and air traffic is increasing at about 15-20% per annum in many corridors;

15 Increasing congestion on roads, Delhi airports, increasing road accidents Metros like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai getting choked; Need to develop 2 nd / 3 rd tier cities Need for modal shift to energy/land efficient and environment friendly HSR/conventional Rail mode As engine of economic growth; creating jobs and facilitating other services and industries Suitability of HSR in Indian Context

16 High population density Relatively young age profile Population growth expected to continue Maximum population in working age group (Low Dependency Ratio) A number of urban conglomerates within suitable distance range of 200-800 Km Land becoming a scarce commodity; increasing difficulty in land acquisition Increasing oil import bills to meet the growing demands from roads/airways; This is affecting India’s trade deficit and exchange rate stability. Suitability of HSR in Indian Context

17 Connects major cities of UP and Bihar with Delhi; Heavy travel demand in the corridor The cities on the corridor are important historical and religious tourist places Very high population density within the cities as well as catchment area Population growth rate is higher than India average Delhi-Lucknow-Patna HSR Corridor : Favourable factor

18 Except for Varanasi all other cities are growing at very fast rate Existing IR corridor, NH-2 and Delhi airport is saturated The region is fertile plain land and people are generally well off Plain land – so civil cost of HSR will be less Land is a scarce commodity; resistance to land acquisition Delhi-Lucknow-Patna HSR Corridor : Favourable factor

19 Delhi-Lucknow-Patna HSR Corridor : Unfavourable factor Many stretch along corridor are low lying and flood prone – elevated corridor required Except Delhi, IT and other high end service and manufacturing industries not well developed River crossings at many locations (major rivers Ganga, Yamuna, Sone) Eastern DFC

20 Options for HSR in the Delhi-Agra-Lucknow- Varanasi-Patna Corridor Two options 1) Upgrade the existing rail corridor upto speed of 160-200 kmph, after segregation of DFC 2) To lay dedicated HSR corridor speed 300-350 KMPH Study shows that though upgrading the existing rail corridor will meet the short/medium term requirement of 5-10 years, considering overall economical rate of return, a dedicated HSR in the corridor is desirable in long term Both conventional and HSR corridor will be required to serve to different segment of customers Existing Railway stations are saturated and congested

A 4-platform arrangement is provided which also incorporates a turn back facility.

38 Allahabad station will be at grade and located adjacent to the existing Phaphamau railway station just east of the NH93. A 2- platform station is recommended at Phapaphamu. Varanasi station will be at grade and located in the southern outskirts of the city in proximity to Delhi Public School along State Highway98 near its intersection with SH 74. A 2-platform station arrangement is recommended at Varanasi, incorporating a turn back siding. Patna station will be at grade and located at the site of the Airport (which will be vacated) in close proximity of Phulwari Sharif railway station. A 4 platform terminal station is recommended.

39 Finance Cost – Rs 100 to 110 Crs per Route KM with land acquisition - Rs 80-85 Crs per route Km without land acquisition Unit Cost Embankment – Rs 10 Cr/Km Elevated Viaduct- Rs 50/KM Bridge- Rs 500/Km Tunnel- Rs 600/Km Trainset ( 8 car) – Rs 220 Cr O&M Cost Rs 0.5 per passenger KM (other than rolling stock) Economic Rate of Return – 18-21% Financial Rate of Return- 10-12%

40 Conclusion Upgrading of existing IR Delhi-Kolkata line may work for short/medium term of 10 yrs In long term dedicated HSR is essential for the corridor The HSR should be on standard gauge Mobilizing huge initial capital investment will be a big challenge. PPP route is suggested. Still Govt will have to provide for VGF and counter guarantee for Loan To attract private players PPP framework should allocate risk judiciously.

41 Adequate provision for non farebox revenue by way of property development and rentals to keep the ticket price competitive HSR should come up as part of overall development package including land-use, integrated transport. State government would have to play active part. Associated benefits of HSR along with increased tax revenue to Govt would pay off for the initial capital investment. Conclusion
