The Maharashtra government signed an agreement with the Virgin Group, on February 18, 2018, to build a hyperloop transportation system between Mumbai and Pune, which boasts to reduce the travel time to 20 minutes as compared to 3 hours that it takes now. The first hyperloop route will link central Pune with the megapolis, as well as the Navi Mumbai international airport making travel a matter of minutes.

So will it get launched and completed on time and if it does get completed as promised, what effect will it have on real estate in the two cities?

      We are unfortunately in an era where gimmicks,PR and scams dominate.
      The announcement itself boosts chances of someone being seen a progressive and development oriented.
      We require the expressway and old highway to be well maintained and broken down trucks removed promptly so as to allow smooth movement.20 minutes from Pune to Mumbai is beyond our reach.Let us see if trains can cover it in 2 hours and roads transport in 3 hours.
  • We need a hyperloop to take our country to an actual state of being called a developed country. The government knows the perks of being termed as a "developing nation" as compared to that of being a "developed nation" where the former has immense scope for making money!
