 To know the growth of Bullet Trains.OBJECTIVES  To acquire knowledge about the Bullet Trains. .

The secondary data are collected mainly from  Internet . The methodology includes the methods.RESEARCH METHODOLOGY Methodology is the way in which we find out information. So a researcher is said to make use of data already collected by some other person. A methodology describes how something will be done. • Secondary data are those which have been collected by some other person for their purpose and published. procedures and techniques used to collect and analyze information.

Such studies will help me to build competency. .Scope of the study • Scope of the study includes the various aspects covered in the study • It was done over a period of one week. communication skill and to undergo future projects in an easier way. • The study helps me to integrate class room knowledge with the real situation.

• The rail journey from TVM to MGLR which takes 15 hours. • The project is link Thiruvanthapuram and the Northern districts up to Mangalore.BULLET TRAIN IN INDIA • India's first bullet train is all set to be introduced in Kerala. • Japanese agreed to provide Kerala with its most advanced BuulletTrains. will be reduced to just 3 hours with the project coming into being. .Sreedharan(former DMRC chairman ) had discussed with japan.E. • State planning Board member and chairman of the high speed rail company.
