Many nations across the world are building High Speed Railways Network. Recently, one of the Major entrants into this sector is the Republic of India. India already has a vast and well-established network of Railways. Though it is run professionally, there are still certain shortcomings of the present railway network in India. A fresh allocation of resources to create a new High-Speed Railways (HSR) Network is taking place. This paper analyses in detail the need and methodology for creating a High-Speed Railways (HSR) Network for India in the presence of an already well-established Rail Network.

In this paper the various technologies and economic impacts will be reviewed to examine how HSR can possibly change the transportation scenario in India. Firstly we discuss about the present Rail Network Scenario in India. Then we analyse the need for a new High-Speed Railways (HSR) Network for India. We go into the details of the financial, cultural, energy and safety implications of such an undertaking. The various High-Speed Railway (HSR) Networks of many nations are also compared. Finally, the paper summarizes and concludes about the significance and impact of a High-Speed Railways (HSR) Network.
